What do handyman services include?

Handymen 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, 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.    

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.

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 :)

Drill x6 holes in outside walls

$50

Manoora QLD, Australia

16th Aug 2020

Hi there I’m looking to Mount x3 Eufy wireless cctv cameras which come with their own screws and mounts. The ideal height for them to be mounted is 7 - 10 feet above the ground. I have a ladder. I can do all the mounting the only thing I can’t do is drill two holes (6mm) in the wall for each camera as I don’t have a drill bit to go through the wall. A pencil for making the points to drill is also needed. This video explains the full process but I’m only really needing the holes drilled and I can do the rest: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=EZOvjb9d5yk Thank you!

Absolutely fantastic service. Quick, efficient and motivated. A complete blessing. Asked me questions along the way to make sure I was happy, did more than was asked and an extra task. I will be a repeat customer for sure! Thank you, Roland!
