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 round 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 pulling up 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.

Handyman - Fix hole on demantable and fence


Avondale NSW, Australia

15th Feb 2024

Hi Looking for a handyman to fix a chain link/barb wire fence and a hole in a portable building. The hole in the portable building is about an A2 size so the piece of ply would need to be a bit bigger and fixed from the outside, not inside as this is a hire. I’ve attached a photo of the fence, of the hole in the demantable from the inside and a picture of the outside of the demantable so you can see what the material is. Only quote including all material please. Flexible on when to meet Mon-Fri between 10:30 until 3pm. Thanks

Highly professional and went above and beyond for the job. Absolutely would recommend!

I would like a quote from a professional that knows how to walk on a roof without damaging it - to clean the bird poo off my solar panels - to fix a Bird Scarer (already purchased this) above the TV aerial - to check if the whirly bird is actually working - to remove the disused satellite dish.

Dursun is a very talented and skilled individual, his help was exceptional. He very cleverly engineered a mounting system for the bird scarer and fixed everything on the roof, he works safety and precisely- meticulous in his methods and very tidy on completion. Very knowledgeable and experienced, willing and able to accept new challenges. Exceptional communication throughout, reliable and 100% great value 👍 I am so grateful - thank you
