Hiring a handyman in NT costs approximately the same this year compared to last year. Recent pricing data from ServiceSeeking.com.au revealed that the average cost of home handiwork in the state stayed at $50/hr from FY14 to FY15.
On the other hand, the budget and premium rates for home handiwork exhibited opposite trends. Budget handymen lowered their prices even further; the budget rate dropped 5% to $47.50/hr within a span of one year. In contrast, premium handyman services became 2% more expensive — the premium rate is now at $51.25/hr.
Like NT, most of the states in Australia saw stable prices over the past year. Prices changed in only two locations for FY15: Tas and ACT. The average rate of home handiwork in Tas soared by 43%. Meanwhile, ACT residents are fortunate to enjoy lower prices for home handiwork this year.
