Suggested reads about Shelf Hanging

What do shelf hanging services include?

Common shelf installation services include building wardrobe and pantry shelves and hanging wall shelving. Your professional will ensure your shelf has the right fittings, angles, and is structurally sound. Popular shelf installation tasks include:

Install a floating shelf

A floating shelf is attached to a wall with no visible means of support, and are popular for their modern, minimalistic look. To begin installing your floating shelf, your handyman will assess the space and use a stud finder to mark the most secure spot for the brackets. They’ll use an electric drill to make a hole and secure the brackets, using a level to ensure everything lines up perfectly. Once the brackets are installed, they’ll measure the space between them and drill into the shelving to fit these exact measurements. Then they’ll slide the shelving into the brackets.

Install a hanging shelf

Your hanging shelf installer will make sure the best type of nail is used for your wall material and the best position to install your shelf. They will use a level if you’re installing more than one hanging shelf to ensure they’re mounted evenly. Your installer will advise how much weight the shelf will be able to bear and answer any questions you may have.

Install a wardrobe or pantry shelf

Your shelving installer will advise on the best kind of shelving to suit your space - fixed, adjustable, corner, floating, or pull out. They will then measure the space. If you’re hiring them to make the shelving too, they’ll let you know how long it will take them to build your custom shelving. Once the shelves are ready, they’ll use their tools to expertly screw your new shelves into place. If you opted for sliding or rotating shelves, they’ll ensure the shelves pull out smoothly.

Install a garage shelf

Getting your garage or workshop organised with shelving can help with storage and productivity. Your handyman will advise what type of shelving will best suit your space and align this with your weight-bearing requirements. With overhead shelving, your installer will attach the brackets to the ceiling where the joists are located -  this is the strongest point in your ceiling. 

Your handyman will properly measure the space for your overhead shelving and make sure it will not interfere with your garage door, lighting, and work area. They will then install your shelving, with the longest part going across the joists so that your new shelves will have the most support possible and not overburden the joists.

Cabinet Shelf Install


Botany NSW, Australia

23rd Feb 2024

Would like to install 2 x horizontal shelves into the attached cabinet. 1 x shelf approx 220mm from the bottom The top shelf should divide the remaining area in half. Attached is a proposed shop drawing for the install. This is based on using a standard 22mm thick shelf. Also open to using 32mm thick shelves with the distances between them reduced proportionately. Could we get a quote to install please? Ideally shelves would be painted the same colour grey as the cabinet. To be mounted in a floating style, attaching shelves to the vertical cabinet ends and/or back wall of cabinet (don't want to see hinges). Plan is to put some heavy statues/awards on the shelves so will need therm to have a high weight capacity. Thanks so much! - Due date: Before Tuesday, 9 January 2024

Hanging 5 pictures + 2 wall-mount shelves


Ultimo NSW, Australia

15th Jan 2024

We live in an apartment at 99 Jones Street Ultimo and have 5 pictures of various sizes from A3 to the largest one that is 61 x 122 cm. All walls have clear and easy access and in my unprofessional opinion, are gyprock. We also have 2 IKEA shelves (~80cm long each) that we'd like to mount in our linen cupboard. If possible, we also built an IKEA shelf in our laundry that came with a screw to secure to the wall which I'm not really confident doing part myself.

Max was great! prompt communication and delivered as promised. Would hire again/10! :)

Shelf installed in apartment alcove


Pyrmont NSW, Australia

9th Dec 2023

A modern apartment has a "media centre" which is a couple of shelves in an alcove for use with a computer. The present shelf/table top is too high for the user and needs to be replaced with the same but lower. There is a drawer under the existing table top but this need not be replicated. Photos are attached showing views of the top and two of underneath. White melamine is probably the way to go to match existing. The alcove is 970 wide and 660 deep. The finished height of h the table top should be (say) 70mm lower than existing. - Due date: Flexible

quite competent and reasonably reliable. Would re-employ

Install shelving in garage


Darlinghurst NSW, Australia

10th Oct 2023

Hi. I have adjustable shelving that needs to be installed in the garage. I am looking for somebody who has handyman skills or similar to put together the adjustable shelving. I have included photos of the installation guide/instructions. I don't have photos of the shelving. The support posts will need to be cut down to fit - so you will need a grinder to cut them down. The rest is adjustable and the shelves slide in. I have all the posts, shelves and nuts and bolts. Thank you - Due date: Before Sunday, 15 October 2023

An absolute pleasure to do business! No mess. No fuss. Got the job done beautifully :)
