What does a Handyman do?

A handyman is someone who is skilled at a wide range of maintenance and repair tasks. They provide a great first port of call if you’re in need of any mfrfinor repairs at home or in the workplace. They often carry out services that professionals such as electricians or plumbers may not usually offer, so are perfect for the odd jobs that seem to constantly crop up.

But while handymen are adept at all manner of jobs, they can also specialise in certain areas, such as:


1. Putting up shelves
2. Hanging/re-hanging internal doors

How do I find a reliable Handyman?

Finding any old handyman will take just a matter of minutes. Simply have a quick look online to find one in your local area, or even check the phone book. But if you want to find a handyman who will show up when you need them and carry out the job well, it’s worth taking the extra time.  A good starting place would be to ask your friends, family and neighbours for recommendations. If this doesn’t turn up anything, then the next step would be to look online.

When trying to find a handyman online, keep an eye out on:

  • Their testimonials
  • Their ratings
  • Their prices and services offered
  • Any qualifications they may have

By keeping comparing these factors, you’ll soon find one or several handymen that you want to get a quote from.

Why Should I hire a Handyman?

When it comes to doing small odd jobs around the home, our first instinct is usually to do it ourselves and save ourselves some money. But if you’re not skilled at maintenance or repair work, then it might be better to call in someone more skilled to do the job.

And there are several good reasons why you should consider hiring a handyman before calling on a professional or attempting a difficult task yourself. These include:

  • Convenience – Handymen are adept at coming in, doing the job quickly and well, and getting out with minimal hassle to you
  • Affordable – Handymen are almost always cheaper to call out than a professional
  • Safety – if you’re carrying out potentially dangerous work that you’re not qualified to do, you could be placing yourself in danger. Hiring a handyman removes this risk.
  • Quality – if you’re unskilled at practical tasks, then it’s probably worth paying for a handyman to do the job well rather than botch the job yourself


How much does a Handyman cost?

Rates will vary depending on things such as your location. But typically, a more junior handyman may cost around £10 per hour, while a more experienced handyman will cost around £20 per hour.

Will a Handyman have tools?

Yes, any handyman should have all of the tools required to do any jobs you call him out for.
