Essential advice on handymen

What is a handyman?

A handyman is someone who completes an assortment of maintenance tasks around a home, both indoor and outdoor. Rather than specialising in a single practical skill such as plumbing or electricity, a handyman is a jack-of-all-trades who can turn their hand to almost any job. In saying this, many handymen do become accredited in trades such as carpentry, plumbing, mechanics, and painting, as it helps to improve their skill and effectiveness in their role. But at heart, a handyman prides himself on being able to tackle every common job around the house, so you don’t have to.

A mobile handyman is simply a handyman who visits your home—that’s to say, a regular old handyman!

Why use a handyman?

Homes need constant maintenance, and as a homeowner, you may not have the skills or tools to complete jobs effectively. If your wily bull terrier puts a claw through the wall, you’ll need sandpaper, plaster, a putty knife, and a paint that matches. You’ll also need to figure out how to do it, and getting it wrong can leave a horrible brown plaster smudge on the wall. This is just one example of hundreds—things can go wrong with your fencing, tiles, decking, flyscreens, and anything else that makes up your home. These tasks can build up quickly and became overwhelming, and you might feel resentful having to fix them after slaving away at work all week. Your weekend should be for relaxing!

Thankfully, a handyman has the tools and experience to fix most common household problems, and to a great standard. If you don’t feel like fixing your jungle-like garden, the gaping hole in your fly screen, or clearing your leaf-filled gutters, a handyman can take care of these jobs quickly and for a great price, giving you back your leisure time.

Standard handyman hourly rates in Brisbane

What are the standard handyman hourly rates in Brisbane? It depends on their skill, experience, and the job that is being completed, but the typical handyman’s hourly rate in Brisbane is somewhere between $40 to $90 p/hr.1 Some handymen might charge set rates for particular projects, rather than an hourly rate.

Our prices are highly competitive, so get in touch for a quote today. We’ll be happy to complete your odd jobs for you.

Typical handyman repair list

A typical handyman’s repair list is huge—they can complete a wide range of jobs, which is what makes them so handy! The most common jobs that are a part of a handyman repair list in Brisbane include:

  • Fixing holes in walls
  • Painting
  • Replacing doors
  • Gutter cleaning
  • Tile installation and fixing
  • Laying or repairing decking
  • Simple electrical fixes, such as wiring
  • Machinery repair, such as simple mechanical breaks
  • Flyscreen fixes
  • Fixing drywall
  • Anything that is an eyesore!

Handyman training

A handyman doesn’t necessarily require training. They just need experience working on common household jobs, and a natural practical intelligence. Complex jobs such as building, plumbing or electrical work will require a handyman with suitable qualifications, which allows them to complete a wider range of tasks. If you’re hiring a handyman in Brisbane for a job that requires licensing, you might consider asking for confirmation of their qualifications before hiring them.

Handyman tools

A handyman is a versatile tradesman who is equipped with a variety of tools for a range of jobs. This includes screwdrivers, spanners, hammers, pliers, tape, clamps, spirit levels, saws, drills, and nail guns, to name a few. Once you describe your job to them, they’ll bring every tool they need to complete it (or make a quick trip to Bunnings to buy it).

They should be able to provide everything they need to get the job done.

FAQs – Handyman Brisbane

  • Do you carry handyman insurance?

    We carry standard public liability insurance which covers damages of up to $5 million. We rarely make mistakes, but this insurance ensures that your home is fully protected if something happens, and is standard for all handymen.

    We also carry professional indemnity insurance which allows us to complete work on rental homes, on behalf of real estate agencies. Again, this ensures that the rental property is fully covered for accidental damage (although this is extremely unlikely because our handymen are trained professionals).

  • Which areas of Brisbane do you cover?

    We cover every single auburn on the northside and southside of Brisbane. We can confirm your suburb for you if you send us a quick message or give us a call.

  • What are your payment terms?

    Our payment terms are seven days after the invoice is issued. This should give you plenty of time to settle the invoice, and we accept credit card payments, bank transfers, and cash payments.

  • Do you work weekends?

    If you have an urgent job you’d like us to tackle, we can complete this on a weekend for you. Urgent jobs might include plumbing issues, overflowing gutters, fixes to your roof, and many more. Please get in touch and we’ll arrange a Saturday or Sunday for our handyman to visit your home and fix your urgent issue.

  • What jobs don’t you take?

    Unfortunately, we can’t complete structural work. This is highly specialised work that needs to be 100% safe, and so requires the qualifications and skills of a professional builder. We are happy to complete regular plastering, dry wall, or gyprock work for you, but if the job involves the structural integrity of your home, you’ll need to contact a builder.

     

  • Can a handyman work with flooring?

    Most handymen are able to install simple forms of flooring such as vinyl and laminate, and possibly with tiles. They can also try to tackle issues such as scratches and dents, although this depends on the type of flooring involved, because some can be difficult to repair.

  • Is a handyman also a painter?

    Painting is a common handyman job, and should be doable by most handymen who know their stuff. Finding a handyman painter should be easy.

    Handyman painting is reserved to simple small jobs though. If you’re thinking of getting your entire house re-painted, you’ll need to contact professional painters.

  • Can a handyman do plumbing work?

    If a handyman has taken the time to acquire a plumbing qualification, he’ll be able to complete plumbing work. This includes fixing leaky toilets, faucets, showers, and identifying more major issues such as underfloor pipe leaks (we sincerely hope you don’t have one of these).

  • Can a handyman replace a toilet?

    A handyman requires basic plumbing knowledge to replace a toilet, just in case a leak occurs during the job.

  • Can a handyman do removals?

    Many people who move find themselves left with bulky stuff they don’t need. Bookshelves, lounge sets, old beds—without a ute, it’s difficult to get rid of. A handyman removal service is just one of the many useful things that a handyman can do for you, carting away your old stuff to the tip so you don’t have to worry about it anymore.

  • Do I need a builder or a handyman?

    It depends on the scale of the job being completed. If you’re wanting to do something that includes complex structural work, such as building an extension on your house, you’ll need a qualified builder. If you’re wanting something smaller like adding a cornice to your living room or resealing your bathroom tiles, a handyman should be able to complete this for you.

    It’s worth noting that some handymen do have builder qualifications, so it’s important to check which services they offer before choosing between the two.
