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. 

FIND A LOCAL HANDYPERSON

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. 

FIND A LOCAL HANDYPERSON

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?

HEX360 was founded in 2015 by Craig Lewis with the solid foundation that a degree in construction management provides. Before launching HEX360, Craig’s former life saw him working at Princess Yachts, where he founded his skills and acquired his particular attention to detail – but if you’ve reached this page, you probably aren’t interested in hearing Craig’s life story… you’re really interested in finding out what makes HEX360 different to all the other construction companies out there. So read on and discover our difference. Working with most construction companies can feel a bit like finding your way in the dark – you just don’t know where to go to get the information you need. The stereotypical construction company that makes matters so confusing and complicated that everything they say goes over your head is, unfortunately, not just a myth. They’re out there, and they’re confusing clients as we speak. So, it’s no wonder that so many people put off their project or come to a grinding halt partway through – after all, it can all feel just too overwhelming. Luckily, HEX360 is here to change your perceptions and prove that not all construction companies are the same. We’re dedicated to working with you, not for you, and that means taking a collaborative approach right from the get-go. With our 8-step process, we’ll clearly outline every stage of your project so you won’t feel overwhelmed, and thanks to our use of in-house project management software, you’ll have complete transparency for every aspect of your project. We are committed to flexibility, accessibility, and approachability so your project can run smoothly, whether you’re updating your kitchen, renovating or extending your entire home or developing a large commercial property. You’re more than a number on a spreadsheet to us, and we never bite off more than we can chew. Our attention and efforts are solely dedicated towards you and your project during your time with us. Unlike with some construction companies, once we begin work on your project we don’t simply move on to our next. We provide industry leading account management during the full life cycle of the project, meaning you aren’t forgotten about once you sign on the dotted line.
