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.

Terminate electrical points st Kilda Rd Melbourne

$150

Melbourne, VIC, Australia

10th Apr 2021

Hi Taskers, I have just demolished an internal office wall. I need an electrician to terminate the following (see pics). The wires/cables can be neatly bundled in the roof space as long as they are safe. If you need to notch a groove in the ceiling tile that is fine. Job is at St Kilda, Melbourne. Ground floor office. Requires a Compliance Certificate. Ceiling height is 2.7 metres high. The office is currently vacant so this job can be done anytime. I will have to meet you onsite to give you the keys. I live in the CBD myself so I'm not too far away at all. Thanks.

Matthew is an brilliant electrician. He turned up on time for an urgent job that I needed to get done. He did a great job of terminating all the wires and issuing an electrical certificate. He is polite and easy to get along with too. I highly recommend Matthew and if I could give him 7 stars I would. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
