Benefits Of Hiring A Handyman


There are plenty of odd jobs around the home that don’t need the skills of a licensed contractor. Hire a handyman instead and you’ll save time, money and energy. Here are some of the main benefits you can enjoy with this service.  


Several Skills

Handymen have a number of skills on offer - so if you need a painter, a gardener or a bricklayer, they can provide all these services. Rather than paying for several specialised contractors, you can get all these services in one professional. From fixing fences, to building a garden shed, if you’re not confident with DIY it’s time to call your local handyman.


Affordable Rate

An independent handyman will likely charge a more affordable rate than a specialised service provider. Always get a quote and check what they charge on an hourly basis, and if there is a callout fee. For any minor jobs around the house, a handyman is your go-to fix it person.


Saves Time

If you have a backlog of household maintenance tasks, then hiring a handyman will save you using your precious weekend to complete them. They can also do it much quicker and have the right tools for the job. With many DIY jobs you run the risk of causing damage and giving yourself more expense in the long run.


Quality Job

Most handymen take pride in their work but it always pays to check the quality. Research their past repair and maintenance tasks to see if they’ve had satisfied customers. If the handyman doesn’t have a website or Facebook page, and relies on word of mouth, ask them for the contact details of a couple of past clients.

Stepping out of the industry four years ago and moving interstate to expand a frozen yoghurt chain that has gone from 1 to 4 stores in the time he has been involved. This was recently sold to Made Group. Real estate has always been in his blood and it was a natural fit to start Bricks + Agent given the amount of insight he has into the industry as a whole. Having seen how all different forms of traditional marketing was used to the direction that it is now heading today, we think we have come up with a truly unique proposition that fits into the current state of the property maintenance market.
