    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.

    Door and frame replacement


    Colchester, Essex

    2nd Jan 2019

    The back door and frame to the garden needs to be fully replaced as it is rotten. It is 30x75

    Felix was friendly but not reliable at all. I have to travel to get to the location and with this knowledge he didn’t have the materials ready the first time round after a week of knowing about the task and reassuring me it would be done. We had to reschedule and the second time when I was travelling to my location he told me on the day that he wasn’t able to complete the task after again reassuring and promising the task would get done. This was very frustrating as I spent money to book tickets twice and have nothing to show for it.

    Wall mounting 16 pictures

    25th Feb 2019

    Posting yet again, as I've been let down by other Airtaskers on 3 occasions. Please only message if you are reliable, able to complete the task on Sunday and won't cancel! I have 16 picture that need hanging on my walls, various sizes, the smallest being 8 x 6" and the largest 24 x 16". 10 of the pictures are to be arranged into a gallery wall, so experience of doing gallery walls is preferred. The airtasker needs to bring own drill, screws, wall plugs and hanging materials. Airtasker must also be competent at checking that the walls are safe to drill and won't hit any pipes/wires!
