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.

Lighting/electrical components on microcamper need fixing


St Leonard's, City of Edinburgh

17th Nov 2022

Storage compartment There is lighting above the doors to the separate storage compartment on the left and right side of the vehicle and neither lights work. The right side has a an ordinary light switch inside the storage compartment with a lead that runs to the left side of the cab – the cable has been cut to the left side. Cable under water storage tank under sink There is a white cable under the water storage tank that is under the sink, I just found it tucked away there. Not sure what it is for, could be removed? Also, there are two buttons on the upper right side of the cupboard above the sink, the bottom button is for the rear above door external lights (works), the upper button doesn’t seem to do anything, and I am not sure what it is for. Perhaps this button was originally wired to the rear square lights that are now wired to light up when it is put in reverse? If so, it would be preferable to rewire the square lights to the overhead button. If not, perhaps remove? Bar light over sink (underneath cupboard) Flickers, loose cable? Left side orange night lights When the night time drive lights are on there are three corresponding orange lights that light up on each side of the vehicle. The first two orange lights on the left side of the vehicle near the fuel entrance doesn’t light up. High beam lights Lights work fine but when the button to switch on the lights is pressed (right side of the steering wheel) the led light in the button flickers but doesn’t stay on while the high beams are on. - Due date: Flexible
