Quick Answers

Our office staff works Monday - Friday from 8 AM - 5 PM. Our handymen set their own schedules, which may be outside of these hours, including nights and weekends.

We don’t currently have a physical location. Our office staff members live locally but work remotely.

Our handymen are happy to offer free ballpark estimates by phone or email. Since we are a “small job” handyman service, we don’t make home visits for every job. For jobs that require an on-site visit, we offer an $89 On-Site Assessment. The OSA comes with an in-person consultation followed by a detailed quote that is guaranteed for 90 days.

You will be contacted within 48 hours, unless you informed us the job was time-sensitive, in which case you can expect to hear from us sooner!

When we assign a handyman to your project, we send an email with his/her bio and contact info. At any time, feel free to reach out to the handyman directly. Please contact our office by phone or email if you do not get a response within 48 hours.

Since our handymen set their own schedules, we cannot promise same-day service. Please contact our office by phone for urgent requests, and we will do our best to accommodate.

We base our quotes on an hourly rate of $89 plus materials. After the first hour, you will be billed in 15 minute increments. For larger projects, our handymen will quote for the project in its entirety.
