How to find a reliable, local handyperson near you

If you’ve ever tackled a home improvement project, you know that sometimes you need a helping hand. That’s where a handyperson comes in – skilled at all manner of work and ready to help you get all of your oIf you’ve ever tackled a home improvement project, you know that sometimes you need a helping hand. That’s where a handyperson comes in – skilled at all manner of work and ready to help you get all of your odd jobs ticked off.  

Why hiring a handyperson is important 

A handyperson can carry out a range of jobs around the home that you can’t or don’t want to do yourself. They’re also skilled at a wide range of repairs and maintenance work.  

If you bought some flat pack furniture and you’ve been frantically typing ‘how to put up  furniture’ in an online search engine ever since, then leave the furniture assembly to a handyperson. They also specialise in wall mounting objects like shelves, mirrors, TVs and photos – so you can finally get that photo wall you’ve been dreaming of. 


What a handyperson can help you with 

Handypeople are worth their weight in gold when it comes to property maintenance! Here are a few of the odd jobs handypeople can help with: 

  • Flat pack furniture assembly  
  • Hanging photos, mirrors, TVs, or curtain rails on walls 
  • Mowing your lawn 
  • Minor plumbing tasks such as fixing a leaky bathroom sink or unclogging a shower drain 
  • Installing or repairing bathroom or kitchen tiles 
  • Basic carpentry work, such as minor furniture repair and building shelves 
  • Small paint jobs that don’t require a painter/decorator 
  • Cleaning your driveway 
  • Fixing a broken fence or gate 

For bigger plumbing, carpentry, painting or gardening projects, you’ll need a carpentry specialist, plumber, painter or gardener

Handypeople tend to charge by the hour, so they can carry out a number of tasks in one visit. Make sure you include all the repair and furniture assembly jobs you want to get done when you post a job, so you can get an accurate quote and help your handyperson plan their time. 


Factors to consider when choosing a handyperson near me 

A reliable handyperson can make your life easier, saving you time and energy, and all while ensuring your home projects are completed to a high standard. To ensure you’re making the right choice, pick a handyperson who: 

  1. Is highly experienced, with a strong history of quality projects 
  1. Has all the right licenses and insurance needed to protect you 
  1. Has a good range of positive reviews from previous clients 
  1. Is offering the services you need, and is able to carry out the work in the timeframe you need it by 
  1. Is quoting a price and payment option that you are happy with, having compared the quote with other handypeople 

Local handypeople are more likely to respond quickly. Find a skilled handyperson near you who can help you get the job done.

How much will a handyperson cost to hire 

The cost of hiring a handyperson varies depending on the job and where you live in the UK (labour costs rise in London and the South East). 

However, you can expect to pay anywhere from £10 to £45 an hour to hire a handyperson, though the average rate is around £30. 

Make sure you add plenty of details about what you want your handyperson to help you with when you post a job, so you can get an accurate quote.  

Questions to ask before you hire a handyperson 

1. How many years of experience do you have working as a handyperson? 

2. How much will the job cost? 

3. How long will the job take? 

4. Will you supply the materials for the job, for example nails and screws? 

5. Do you have public liability insurance and what does this cover?

Did the job next day. Was initially after getting it slabbed but considered having loose stone due to budget and went with that in end to be more cost effective. There wasnt alot of choices/samples etc but happy enough with what was offered. Job agreed by word of mouth only but did a decent job. Not high end finish but I didnt pay top whack for the job either so I feel I got good value for money. The guys all pleasant and did the job quickly. Looks so much better than before so I am pleased with it.

Absolutely fantastic service. We had cracks in our two main bedrooms, hallways and living room that needed repairing whilst we were living in the house with a baby and small child. Tilly got three men on the job to get it all completed asap. The team worked flat out without breaks and got done in 2.5 days (Tilly quoted aprox 3 days). They did over and above what I’d asked them to painting areas they hadn’t even replastered to make the hose look fresh. Tilly quoted & charged very reasonably too.
