Top Handyman related questions

Hiring a handyman can cost anywhere between £50 to £150 per hour, depending on the complexity of the task, the time and tools required, and your location. For a more accurate estimate, request a detailed quote from your Tasker.

Posting a job on Airtasker is the best way to find an expert in home maintenance service near you. The transparent review system on the platform can help you select the most qualified Tasker to complete your task to a high standard.

It varies depending on your handyman's skill set. They may either specialise in particular areas or offer general home maintenance services. To make sure you get the right expert, be as specific and detailed when posting your task.

A handyman typically handles smaller, day-to-day repairs and maintenance tasks around the home. On the other hand, a contractor manages larger-scale projects that require specific licences and expertise, taking on tasks like project management and coordination.

Handyman services can cover minor electrical tasks such as replacing light fixtures, installing ceiling fans, replacing outlets and switches, and installing new electrical appliances. However, they may not be licenced to work on more complex tasks such as wiring upgrades or major repairs. For any electrical work that poses potential safety hazards, consult a qualified electrician.

Handyman Services

What do handyman services include?

Not everyone has the skills, tools, or time to tackle home maintenance and repairs, which is why handyman services are readily available to book on Airtasker. Save yourself the trouble of pulling a DIY by connecting with a reliable handyman near you. 


Here are some tasks you can request from your Tasker:


General handyman services

Most handymen are all-rounders, ready to take on a bit of everything around the house. When you hire one, you can sort out multiple issues in one fell swoop, from yanking up carpets and hanging doors to swapping out light bulbs.


Indoor installations and repairs

Struggling to install recently purchased homewares? Or perhaps you can’t replace your damaged appliances just yet? Handymen could easily smooth out these minor bumps. They are equipped to assist with tasks like putting up blinds and curtain rods, installing kitchen sinks and pet doors, and even wallpapering.  If you need a home security system installed, you can also book a Tasker to set this up for you.


Outdoor installations and repairs

Your outdoor area goes through the wringer, enduring everything from heavy rains to the mess left behind after playtime. To keep your backyard in tip-top shape, have outdoor items expertly installed or repaired. Seek out a handyman near you who can assist in tasks like putting up your garden shed or clothesline, mending windows, fixing your mower, and fitting outdoor blinds.


Bricklaying and building work

Handyman services can also cover basic home construction, such as bricklaying and building work. If you need a seasoned builder to help you put up garden walls, repair loose brickwork, install MDF, or construct a chicken coop, count on Taskers to handle them for you. For maintenance, you can also book separate services for gardening work or brick cleaning.


Wall hanging

If you need to free up space in the living room or garage, get a handyman to mount your TV or bicycle on the wall. Instead of pulling a DIY, working with a tradesperson for your wall hanging needs ensures your furnishings are level and fitted securely. Taskers can hang picture frames, mirrors, or heavier electrical items like dryers. Having trouble with your electrical wiring? Have it fixed beforehand by booking another service on Airtasker.


Furniture repair

Before having your broken furniture repaired, specify the type of furniture to make sure you get a Tasker whose skills align with your demands. For instance, get a Tasker with carpentry experience to repair your wooden coffee table, wardrobe, or sofa bed. If the issue is electrical work, such as fixing ceiling fans or digital fitness equipment, ensure your handyman is experienced in this area.


Home maintenance

When you have access to home maintenance services near you, it’s easier preserve your place’s top-notch condition. You can count on your local handyman to help with cleaning the gutters, pressure-washing driveways and paths, resealing windows and doors, and sorting out minor roof repairs. Avoid letting small issues turn into expensive problems with regular home maintenance.
