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.

Curtain panel and Mountain bike hoist installation


Redhead NSW, Australia

21st Apr 2024

Hi!, I need a handy person! Need mounting of ikea Foensteriviva panel blinds. Total length abot 1800 mm. First a bit of patching, sanding and then painting of the space behind the wardrobe, and the mounting timber. Mounting timber needs probably minimal shortening it’s 1800 and space slightly less. Then installation of the rails and of the panel curtains. One rail needs shortening. Then cutting off a few wedges to hold the mounting timber on sloped ceiling. I guess total should take not more than 2-3 hours. Then get my bike hoist mounted on my garage ceiling, similar to the one that I’ve already got, see pictures. Can be mounted whilst paint in wardrobe is drying. Three wedges need to be cut to match the angle of the ceiling slope to be able to mount the timber that holds the hoist straight. I’ve got the timber and I’ve got the screws. Should be doable in 1-2 hours. I guestimate a total of up to 5 hours. All material provided. I do have a mitre saw and an angle meter if needed.
