More About Us

We are a veteran-owned business and our mission is to support those who have supported us. 

ABOUT US

GettaVet is a community for veterans, active duty, those who have retired, or been honorably discharged along with their spouses to earn extra money. Born for the sole purpose of putting veterans first, we can help supplement your income through our platform designed to connect you with homeowners and businesses for short-term freelance projects within the public sector. 

If you’re a homeowner or business, whether your project is a bathroom remodel, painting, landscape or your computer needs fixing, the GettaVet community is here to help. Our screening process includes military service confirmation, background check, and licensing check. We also monitor our service provider reviews. If a provider has received too many negative reviews, we will remove them from our community. All our service providers are prescreened to ensure you receive only the best to complete your project.
