Liam arrived on time, got the job done quickly for the price agreed and was really helpful. Would definitely use him again :)

Salvador was excellent on every level. Punctual, clear and highly skilled. I couldn't recommend him more for any decoration you'd
need in your property. From simple jobs to much more complicated finishes. Don't settle for a handyman who can do everything and end up with mediocre results. Get Salvador, he truly owns his craft.

Finding a handyman

A handyman can be a jack of all trades; a tradesman that can handle everyday household tasks and DIY, such as putting up shelves, changing plugs or assembling furniture. Plentific’s directory is filled with recommended local handymen who can undertake a whole range of tasks in one visit.

Handymen are a cheap and effective way of handling your to-do list. You may be considering carrying out some DIY, but a handyman will be qualified and experienced in areas that you may not be. Remember, you are paying for their expertise as well as their time - they’ll be able to spot solutions through experience.

What do you need to think about when finding a handyman?

Consider how many tasks are going to be on your list. Think about anything that needs fixing where the task isn’t within your own remit. Then make sure you write the list in a way that specifically details what you need doing, prior to engaging with any handymen. It’s very important that you’re clear about the scale of work you’re looking for and number of tasks - it’s not helpful to wait until your local handyman arrives to reveal extra work that you need doing.

Make sure your handyman is licensed and insured. You can check this by asking for proof of their paperwork during the quoting process. As handyman is a generic title and there are no obvious barriers to entry, it’s essential that you verify the local professionals that you choose to hire.

Depending on their line of work, the handyman should be registered to bodies like NICEIC which authorises electrical work of its members. Any offers to carry out heating work should be backed by a membership with the Gas Safe Register.

An experienced professional should be able to provide all of this information. If they cannot, or are hesitant to do so, it would be wise to continue your search.

What does a handyman do?

A handyman can work across a variety of specialisms, these can include trade skills such as electrical, carpentry, masonry or plumbing work. They could carry out maintenance or repair work, across the interior and exterior of your property. Their repair work could range from a window, to pipes, doors, tiles and floorboards.

Your local handyman could also carry out cleaning of drains, re-painting walls or surfaces and they could also polish floors.

How much does a handyman cost?

Plentific advises you get at least three quotes from as many handymen in order to assess what the competitive rate is. Handymen will charge an hourly rate, which will be stipulated by the nature of the task. If the task requires trade skills, then it will cost more than the changing of lightbulbs. A tradesmen with qualifications across the board will cost more than one without a license, so it may not pay to get the cheapest tradesman.
