What do handyman services include?

Handymen with good customer service can tackle a wide range of indoor and outdoor home DIY tasks. Here are some tasks you might ask a local handyman near you to pop around and help with:

General handyman services

Got a list as long as your arm of odd jobs that need a handyman to complete? Hire general labour handymen to get several things done at once. They can help with general maintenance tasks such as pulling up a carpet, hanging doors, fixing broken appliances and replacing light bulbs, garden work, and more. 

Indoor installations and repairs 

A local handyman can help install newly bought homewares or fix broken possessions (so you can hopefully save some money). For example, they can help with DIY blind installation and repairs, fitting and repairing the kitchen sink, fitting pet doors, hanging shower screens, and even wallpapering. They’ll get it done using their own specialist tools and will let you know if you need to provide or pay for any additional materials.

Outdoor installations and repairs 

Your outdoor area and belongings have to deal with a lot. So help them withstand whatever nature (or your family) throws at them for longer by getting them professionally installed or repaired. Find a handyman who can help with garden shed installation, BBQ repair, fitting outdoor blinds, window repairs, fixing your mower, putting up your clothesline, and even repairing your kids’ trampoline.  The cost of these services varies. You can learn how much letterbox replacement costs or how much window blinds installation costs with our price guides.

Bricklaying and building work

You can hire a handyman near you with bricklaying and building experience to help build garden walls, repair loose brickwork, install MDF, or even construct a chicken coop. When getting quotes from tradesmen, mention if you’ve got the building materials already, or if you’d like them to supply the materials as part of the job.   

Wall hanging

From pictures and TVs to bike racks and mirrors - if you need help with wall mounting, get a DIY handyman to fit your furnishings securely and make sure they’re level. Most handymen will bring their own tools, but you may need to supply extra materials such as screws, picture wire, or mounts for heavier electrical items like TVs and driers. 

Furniture repair

When booking a handyman for furniture repair, you’ll need to be specific about the furniture that needs fixing. For example, handymen with carpentry experience may better if it’s your wooden coffee table, wardrobe, or sofa bed that need repairing. Meanwhile, a handyman with electrical experience may be right for any ceiling fan or digital fitness equipment fixes. That’ll ensure you get the best handyman near you for the job, plus the right tools to get it done.

Buiding inspection


Clifton Beach QLD, Australia

17th Mar 2024

Hello, I have just noticed that the beam above my window is totally rotten and the water is leaking through it. I assume that there must be a leakage on the roof or some problem with a gutter. The water is streaming along my window post! I live on a second (top) floor of a Strata building. I am looking for someone to locate the problem and suggest the solution. I might need a sort of a written note or a report to forward it to Strata if the problem is beyond my responsibility. Thank you in advance. Kind regards, Sara

I highly recommend James & will use him in the future. Extremely thorough inspection to locate and address the problem; easy to read report with all photos labelled with defects description. Excellent Service. Thank you, Jimmy :o)
