Recent Handyman reviews

"Harry was very friendly and did a great job. I would highly recommend him."

Hanging of strings of lights


"He is very friendly and a good handy man. Capable of doing a variety of tasks from door locks to cutting timber and painting. Can be quite quick in completing his jobs but can miss attention to detail. Prompt at attempting to his duties. Not good at communication though eg, no starting time was communicated but did show up on the day as promised. Not everything listed was able to be completed, 80% completed tasks. Neatness can be improved. Please ensure task descriptions are read fully and understood before offering. "

Top Handyman related questions

What skills does a handyman have?

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.

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.

Metal fabricator - MAKE NEW SHAPE 4 MY DIRT BUGGY


Craigieburn VIC, Australia

20th Nov 2020

Please see photos of the current state of the buggy. Need done soon as possible. I have a suzuki gsxr 1000 dirt buggy, and I am after a metal fabricator who is able to cut the top half of my buggy off and weld a new frame and shape. The shape that was made is very ugly and i cant stand it any longer. Please keep in mind that the whole frame does not need to come apart. Just cut off parts you think need to be cut and reshape and add a new shape to buggy. I just want to change some angles and things. The whole back needs to change as part of the shape as well. I also want the back to be joined with the front. At the moment the front and back are seperate with the rear suspension leaning on towards the back wall of the front half of the buggy as seen in photos. Its a horrible design. The buggy looks great from the front and back but it looks horrible from the side angle. I want it to look better from all angles. Looks like a mars rover from the side lol I need a dash built for all my control switches as well. Also want to cut of the wheel mud guards and make better looking ones. Current ones are horrible looking. Very straight forward job. I also have a new axle with hubs which i would like to have installed and brackets made up so they can bolt on and replace the current and old ones. The current ones have the sprocket welded to the axle hence the reason i have got a whole new one made up and ready to install with new sprocket as well. Just need sprocket installed on the new axle and aligned with the front engine sprocket and then the whole new axle bolted in.
