Top Handyman related questions

The cost of hiring a handyman starts at $40 per hour and can reach up to $90, depending on the complexity of the task, the time and tools required, and your location. Handymen can also charge by project. Request a detailed quote from your Tasker for a more precise estimate.

Posting a job on Airtasker is the best way to find an expert in home maintenance service near you. The transparent review system on the platform can help you select the most qualified Tasker to complete your task to a high standard.

It varies depending on your handyman's skill set. They may either specialise in particular areas or offer general home maintenance services. To make sure you get the right expert, be as specific and detailed when posting your task.

A handyman typically handles smaller, day-to-day repairs and maintenance tasks around the home. On the other hand, a contractor manages larger-scale projects that require specific licences and expertise, taking on tasks like project management and coordination.

Handyman services can cover minor electrical tasks such as replacing light fixtures, installing ceiling fans, replacing outlets and switches, and installing new electrical appliances. However, they may not be licenced to work on more complex tasks such as wiring upgrades or major repairs. For any electrical work that poses potential safety hazards, consult a qualified electrician.

General Maintenance

What do handyman services include?

Have some untackled DIY tasks at home that you can’t seem to find time for? Find a highly skilled handyman near you with remarkable customer service by using Airtasker. 


Here are some handyman services you might find useful:


General handyman services

Start chipping away at that growing list of odd jobs around the house. By hiring a general labour handyman, you can get several things done expertly and efficiently. Request your Tasker to help you with tasks like pulling up carpets, replacing light bulbs, or hanging shelves so you can focus on finishing work, running your business, or taking care of your kids.


Indoor installations and repairs

Whether you need assistance with installing newly bought homeware or fixing old ones to avoid purchasing replacements, your hired handyman can cover for you. Have them work on installing curtain rods and blinds, fitting the kitchen sink, setting up pet doors, and even wallpapering. If a home security system is what you need installed, you can book a separate service to make this happen.


Outdoor installations and repairs

Your outdoor setup tends to take a beating, from heavy rains or the messy aftermath of kids playing. Keep your backyard in top shape by getting outdoor items fixed up right. Find a handyman near you who can tackle tasks like setting up your garden shed or clothesline, patching up windows, getting your mower back in action, and installing some outdoor blinds.


Bricklaying and building work

If you’re in need of basic home construction, go for handyman services provided by Taskers with ample bricklaying and building experience. These experts can help you build garden walls, repair loose brickwork, install MDF, or even construct a chicken coop. To maintain these areas, you can also hire Taskers to perform gardening work or brick cleaning as needed.


Wall hanging

Want to free up space by mounting your TV or bicycle on the wall? Get a handyman for any wall hanging needs to ensure your furnishings are level and fitted securely. From picture frames and mirrors to heavier electrical items like dryers, count on your Tasker to do a thorough job. Need help with your cable TV wiring? You can also book a service for this on Airtasker.


Furniture repair

When booking a repairman for furniture fixes, be specific about the item that needs fixing to make sure you hire the right people. For example, handymen with carpentry experience may be suitable if you’re looking to have your wooden coffee table, wardrobe, or sofa bed repaired. On the other hand, hire a tradie with electrical experience for fixing ceiling fans or digital fitness equipment.


Home maintenance

Keeping your home in top-notch condition is a breeze when you have access to regular home maintenance services near you. A local handyman can help with cleaning the gutter, pressure-washing driveways and paths, resealing windows and doors, and working on minor roof repairs. Regular home maintenance can prevent small issues from turning into costly problems, keeping your place looking schmick and running smoothly.
