Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

When is a Handyman generally required to be called in?

Handymen are generally required for all type of odd jobs in the house, however, primarily for jobs require skilled drilling into walls and ceilings to hang, mount or install fixtures. In addition, handyman also provide IKEA or other modular furniture assembly required upon a new purchase or after a move.

Why do handymen charge by the hour ?

Handyman services do not generally require an inspection and can be done instantly e.g. mounting a TV, curtain or blind installation, if the parts are available. It therefore does not make sense to do an inspection and charge a call-out. Therefore it is more transparent and fair to both parties, to follow a per hour charging method.
