Install sensor light

$100

Smithfield QLD, Australia

4th Nov 2020

Install sensor light I brought at Bunnings. It has two globes. New installation & I put $100 because I have no clue how much to offer. I’d like it installed near my back sliding door so it lights up my clothesline area and adds extra security to my backyard. In the last image you can see a drain pipe and the is the area where I’d like the installation. I have added another picture showing the roof pitch. Sorry I’m only 5’ft tall so it is the best I can do.

OMFG Book this legend!!!! Couldn’t do enough to help me and get my light installed. Professional job completed, he had all the required tools and cleaned up everything after he was finished. Will be rebooking for more electrical and odd jobs in the future :)

Edmonton QLD, Australia

Hi, I'd like a handyman who works faster then a crawl please, as our best one has relocated. Hourly rates don't scare me however our $80hr man was faster and better priced than a $40hr man, so we'd like the same value, no matter your hourly rate. You'll know how to silicone edges and patch/plaster, and get straight edges with painting, as well as replace tiles on edge of patio. They're all very minor jobs, tightening hinges etc, and about 6 hours work of it. Done over next few days please.
