Understanding the charges of an Adelaide handyman
When there is a job that needs doing around the home, like a broken cabinet, a busted doorknob, or their gutters clean, many people will call their local Adelaide handyman. However, before they get around to booking an appointment, the question of how much does an Adelaide handyman charge will cross their minds.
Before getting around to price, it’s always a good idea to know what an Adelaide handyman can do for you. Here are just a few of the jobs I regularly get called out to fix, repair, or replace.
- Hanging picture frames, mirrors, and TVs
- Furniture assembly (flat packs from Ikea, for example)
- Basic carpentry work
- Tile repairs
- Property maintenance (gutter cleaning, window cleaning, light pruning, etc.)
- Pressure washing
- Connecting whitegoods (washers, dryers, dishwashers)
If the job you have in mind is not on this list, please get in touch as I am happy to answer any questions.
Does an Adelaide handyman need to be licensed?
In general, a home handyman can do a lot without a license. Of course, I won’t be doing any electrical work or complex plumbing, but I can change your lightbulbs and replace the valves and washers on a leaky tap.
If the work you need to be carried out isn’t structural and does not exceed a certain value, an Adelaide handyman can carry it out legally. I may not be able to build you a new kitchen, but I can tile your kitchen splashback and fix your broken cabinets to the same high standards.
What are the going rates for an Adelaide handyman?
In general, the going rate for a home handyman service is around $60 -80 per hour, but there are some guidelines. Small jobs may be quoted at a 2-hour minimum, and for that, you will be able to get a lot of little jobs done around your home, such as:
- Set up and wall mount a TV
- Build flatpack furniture or a storage system
- Plaster repairs
- Fix water damage
- Clean gutters or windows on a small property
- Pressure clean a driveway
No two jobs are the same, so if your needs are a little more complex and you need to know a price, I am happy to provide a free no-obligation quote.
