Hiring a Handyman

Every house will need to undergo some repairs and home improvement every now and then. It could be as simple as changing a light fixture and cleaning the roof and gutters or something more complex like doing some kitchen and bathroom remodelling.

You can count on an experienced handyman to help you with these types of jobs. Handymen are experts at handling domestic repairs and minor renovation work. Their skills are varied which include carpentry, gardening, and simple plumbing and electrical work. They have extensive knowledge and experience when it comes to house repair and maintenance work.

A typical workday for a handyman is always different. Being the jacks-of-all-trades that they are, they handle different jobs for each customer. They could be doing a drywall repair job one day, and then installing a shelf for another customer the next day. Here are some of the common tasks offered by handyman services.


Handymen are skilled at cutting, sawing, and shaping wood and other materials. They know their way around power tools, hand tools, hammers, and measuring tools. A handyman can install shelves, build cabinets, fix staircase railings and balustrades, and other basic carpentry work.


You can also hire a professional handyman service to do some painting work for you. You’ll get the most value for your money when you hire a handyman for small painting jobs such as painting your deck or giving your doors a fresh new colour. Besides, some professional painters don’t accept small jobs that don’t meet their minimum quote requirement. Handymen, on the other hand, take on painting jobs that aren’t big enough for professional painting businesses.


Handymen also handle all sorts of cleaning jobs. Although they are capable of doing house cleaning, they are mainly hired to clean gutters, roofs, driveways, and other outdoor areas of the house.


You can also hire a handyman specialist to do some yard work for you. They can take on most gardening jobs such as mowing lawns, trimming the bushes, watering the plants, cleaning the yard, and collecting and disposing garden rubbish.

Odd Jobs

Handymen are best known for doing odd jobs around the house. If there’s some work that needs to be done and you don’t know which tradie to hire, then a handyman is the best person to call. Examples of odd jobs are assembling flat pack furniture, cleaning up after a party, wall TV mounting, mirror hanging, and setting up electronics such as home theatre systems and CCTV cameras.

How to find local handyman services

  1. Make a list - The first thing you should do when hiring a handyman is to make a list of the things that need to get done. This is to ensure you get an accurate quote and that the handyman has the tools, skills, and experience to handle each job.

  2. Compare quotes - provides customers with a fast and convenient way to get quotes from various tradies. If you’re looking for a handyman, just go to our website, and post the details of the job and wait for handyman service providers to start sending you their quotes. To get the most value for your money, it is a good idea to always compare quotes first before hiring a tradie such as a handyman. Some businesses even offer a price match once they find out that you are looking for a tradie but still in the process of comparing quotes.

  3. Insurance and licence - Even for simple jobs such as fence painting or changing the lock on your door, you need to hire someone who is insured to keep you protected should anything happen to them while they are working within the premises of your property. Licence, on the other hand, can give you peace of mind knowing that the person you are hiring is qualified to handle the job.

  4. Quality of work and customer service - Price is not the only selling point when it comes to handyman services for hire. You should also take into consideration their workmanship and how they treat customers. Do they respond promptly to your queries? Are they punctual? To find out these things, you should take a moment and read customer feedback and reviews left by people who have hired them in the past.

Price List for Handyman Services

They normally charge by the hour but handyman service rates may still vary depending on the job. For example, installation job may be priced differently compared to house repair jobs. The rates also depends on the city, state, or territory that you are in. Some states have lower handyman rates compared to other areas in the country.

Other things that may affect the cost is the handyman’s level of expertise and years of experience. The more skilled they are and the more experience they have under their belt, the higher they charge for their services. If they are providing the materials, the cost will also be added to the quote.

Want to know what others have to say about the handymen that they’ve hired through Below are some customer reviews and feedback:

"Happy with the kitchen renovation by Jerome and his team (cupboards, electrical, plumbing and plastering). Work commenced three weeks after first deposit paid and then took about two weeks to complete. Jerome was happy to address issues along the process and offer follow up if required." - Michelle from Ngunnawal, ACT

"Glenn was fantastic. He was wonderful with my aged parents and chatted to them extensively about the job. He went above and beyond expectations. His work was neat and tidy and he was lovely to deal with. I would definitely recommend Glenn to anyone. Thank you Glenn!" - Suzanne from Morley, WA

"Chris was hired to do a general back garden cleanup and he went above and beyond in a really efficient amount of time. The garden was left looking amazing and he even cleaned up weeds on our front porch. Very impressed with his service and would totally recommend him to anyone. I look forward to utilising his services again." - Darren from Collingwood North, VIC

"Nyle was very helpful from the planning stage right through to completion of our deck. He work quickly, thoroughly and had a high standard for the construction. We very much appreciated the ease of working with him & he was very good at tidying everything up at the end of the job. Thanks Nyle, we'll be recommending you to all our friends and family." - Emma from East Hills, NSW
