Top Handyman related questions

What skills does a handyman have?

A handyman may have one or two specialist skills - like bricklaying or plumbing - or they might offer general handyman services. So clearly explain the task you need done and you’ll get quotes from tradesmen with the right skills for your task.

What are some handyman services?

You might book a handyman to help with jobs like picture hanging, furniture assembly, plumbing repair, bricklaying, or even painting and decorating. By booking a handyman near you, they’ll be able to quickly and easily get to your property and complete your task.

What the difference between a handyman and a contractor?

Handymen tend to be skilled workmen that can help with a range of home services. A contractor, on the other hand, is someone who’s licenced and skilled in one particular profession, like a plumber or electrician.

What electrical work can a handyman do?

With electrical work, general handyman services can extend to replacing light bulbs and, in some cases, helping with electric fan repair. Jobs like installing switches or rewiring should be left to licensed electricians.

How do I find a good handyman?

Posting a job on Airtasker is the best way to find a handyman near you. Our transparent review system helps you book a local handyman with the right right tools and experience to complete your task to a high standard.

How much does a handyman cost?

The average cost of handyman services in Australia is $80-$210. Handyman quotes depend on the complexity of the task, time required, any specialist tools, and whether the handyman is near you or has to travel to reach the job.

What do handyman services include?

Handymen can tackle a wide range of indoor and outdoor home DIY tasks. Here’s some tasks you might ask a 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 completing? Hire general labour handymen to get several things done at once. They can help with pulling up carpet, hanging doors, fixing broken appliances, 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 $). For example, they can help with 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. Your handyman 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.    

 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 handyman to fit your furnishings securely and make sure they’re level. Most handmen 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.
