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.

Move light switches


Eltham, Greater London

15th Oct 2019

We have 2 light switches we'd like moved. Both are on internal walls (one in the living room and one in the kitchen) but it is an Edwardian house so the walls are pretty solid. Happy to reuse the existing switches but unsure what else we'd need so advice on what to buy or someone bringing what's needed would be appreciated. No particular time frame but would like it to be done in the next month.

Handyman needed


Docklands, Greater London

3rd Oct 2019

I have a few tasks that need to be completed and would like someone to come this Friday morning. The previous Airtasker who was awarded the work has not arrived. My request is that anyone who accepts this work, comes when they say they will. The tasks are: - hanging two Ikea style wardrobe doors - drilling holes for the knobs on the doors - replacing the plastic seals on the shower doors (i think this can be done without removing any doors) - removing flaky silicone on an approx 70cm strip in the bathroom and applying fresh silicone - drilling four holes in the bottom of an Ikea cube

Absolutely fantastic- arrived when he said he would and worked completely autonomously. Did a great job

Convert kitchen cupboard to fit a dishwasher


Purley, Greater London, CR8

5th Oct 2019

I need to convert my cupboard that is next to the kitchen's sink to fit a dishwasher. This job requires the removal of the the whole cabinet (such as door, shelves, frame etc). This will also require some electric work such as the installation of electric plug socket on the wall to plug a dishwasher. Please note this is not to install a dishwasher or do any plumbing work. In essence this is to get the space ready to fit a dishwasher later. The dimensions without the whole cabinet are 52x86x59cm (WxHxD) roughly.

Femi is very professional and efficient. He has great attention to detail. I highly recommend his services.

Kitchen sink removal and install


Higham Hill, Greater London

7th Oct 2019

Old kitchen sink and tap needs to be taken out. New kitchen sink is the same however 50mm longer so will possibly need the worktop cutting. The current sink is above the dishwasher, so dishwasher may need taking out to do the job. New sink and tap then to be installed. Located in Walthamstow. Ideally would like the task completed one evening this week or Saturday.

Excellent work. Although the task was not easy and there were quite a few problems that couldn't have been foreseen along the way, Ruzhdi made sure to solve the problems and get the task done to a very high standard. Very very impressed.
