Following Dubai launch last year, expansion to Abu Dhabi is the second in the UAE.

Delhi, 24th June 2019: UrbanClap, India’s largest services marketplace, today, announced the launch of its services in the capital city of the United Arab Emirates – Abu Dhabi. With this move, Abu Dhabi becomes the second city in the UAE where UrbanClap launched its on-demand home services followed by launch in Dubai last year. With the launch in Abu Dhabi, UrbanClap now provides its services across 10 cities in India and 2 cities in the UAE (Dubai).

Abu Dhabi is a major cultural and commercial centre with over 200 nationalities residing in the city who form a considerable population of expatriates. The Middle East as a market is highly developed which provides a high-paced lifestyle, enjoys significant infrastructure capabilities and regulations. Therefore, the company plans to initiate operations in Abu Dhabi with over 20 service partners by offering five services: deep cleaning, maid, pest control, handymen and AC servicing and repair, with home painting and Packers & Movers to be added soon.

Commenting on the expansion to Abu Dhabi, Abhiraj Bhal Co-founder of UrbanClap said, “We are ecstatic about the expansion of UrbanClap’s footprint in the UAE by entering Abu Dhabi. With the capital city being a consumer heavy market and willing to lookout for quality home services – the decision is the right move towards further expansion in UAE. Additionally, Abu Dhabi has a large pool of service professionals available who are not yet online. This is a huge opportunity for UrbanClap to explore the market and tap into this latent talent and enable them to be independent micro-entrepreneurs in the coming five years – hence reimagining how we have consumed services so far.”

Having launched in Dubai in April 2018, UrbanClap’s popularity has grown quickly in the Emirate and has become the go-to solution for solving household needs. With the expansion of business into Abu Dhabi, UrbanClap aims to grow it’s UAE business 2x month on month.
