Jarad did a fantastic job installing two overhead shelves in my garage! He was on time, pleasant to work with...spent the time to make sure I got them just how I wanted. Reasonable price for all the time he took to get it right! Thanks! More...

Highly recommend A1 Handy man. James gets right back to you and sets up appointment time. I have used them twice and work is always clean and professional. Sean came out first time to hang large pictures, work on antique dresser and set up our entire garage (shelves, hooks, tools) in our new home. The second time, Jacob came out to install a very old antique clock. He took his time and did a great job. He also vented a portable AC unit through a garage side wall. When he was done, it looked like it was always a part of the house. Both guys knew their stuff and were very friendly. I will certainly use again when I need help around the house. More...

Very pleased with this business and it’s work product…Lyle is a real pro. I had a damaged wall due to repairing a backsplash. The service squeezed me in within two days of my calling and the work was completed to my utmost satisfaction More...

I have used A1 two times for a variety of repairs/projects. Lyle knows his stuff and doesn't waste time getting things done.

These guys are great! I asked for a quote and they got back to me VERY quickly, they were even able to come out the next day. Jared was awesome, he was able to fix the problem very quickly. He was personable and knowledgeable. Would definitely recommend!! More...

Lyle was right on time and super knowledgeable. We'll definitely use them again when we have more home repairs we can't do ourselves!

We worked with Lyle and had an absolute wonderful experience. Lyle was running late to our appointment and was kind enough to text us a few hours before our appointment to let us know! He has excellent work ethic and never once did he complain or become frustrated when there were unexpected obstacles. He does tremendous work and does not cut corners! He is a real people person and I would definitely welcome him back into our home. A1 Handyman is definitely lucky to have such a professional, hard working, and upbeat employee like Lyle working for them. More...

Sean was awesome. Courteous and friendly. Did a great job repairing leak under sink and installing new garbage disposal. I would definitely use A1 again.

Had A1 come look at a fence repair for my alley fence the garbage truck took out.. they provided a fast quote, we did some modifications and launched the job quickly. The work was excellent in a difficult spot, repair was fast and well done. I'd recommend them highly. More...

We had a heavy door that was very difficult to open to the point where clients would think we were closed! Thankfully A1 Handyman came to the rescue and fixed the issue in a very timely manner. Would definitely  recommend!

I was very happy with my recent service from A1.  I needed a new garbage disposal put in and an electrical switch installed for it.  James responded to my online inquiry right away and was informative about the cost and what to expect and was able to get someone out there within 2 days to come get this completed.  Based on what was needed to be done, this had to be a 2 day project- both days, the tech, Mark, was on time, very friendly and efficient.  After the 2nd day, I did have an issue where my dishwasher wasn't working right after he left.  I emailed James to let him know and Mark called me within 5 mins of me sending the email and setup a time for the next day to come back to check out what was going on. The issue had nothing to do with the work on it the day before and was due to the part being old and needing to be replaced.  He replaced this for me and only charged for the part.  I insisted to pay more for his time/labor, but he said that he quoted me a certain price the other day and was sticking to this.  This to me was very unexpected, but awesome to hear as I have had VERY different scenarios with other plumbing companies that i have used in the past.  I will definitely be reaching out again soon for some other projects around the house.

These guys are great. I called on a Thursday and Mark came out on a Friday to replaced my leaky toilet. He charged a reasonable rate and was a very down to earth guy. Would definitely hire them again!

FANTASTIC. I am an Interior Designer from Chicago and I work with handyman companies all the time, and A1 is the BEST I have ever worked with! Super prompt, polite, helpful, efficient. I can't say enough about these guys. When I booked a job in Boise I was worried that I wouldn't have a team I trust and I was so lucky to get the crew from A1! Jeff was super nice on the phone, and his team is about as sweet and professional as they come. HIGHLY RECOMMEND! More...

Jeff is easy to work with.  Jeff always returns calls promptly.  Scheduling is a breeze.  Jeff assembled/installed three ceiling fans.  Jeff also extended coax TV cable under the house from one wall to another.  Jeff is my go-to guy to get things done, done right, and at a reasonable price!  Thank you, Jeff!!

We had a new window installed in our home. Because the window was larger than the old window, we needed wires moved.  I called A1 Handyman.  They were super friendly and able to get out to my home within the day.  I was impressed because they were willing to come out at 7 p.m. to take care of us.  I did think it was a tad bit pricey for what needed to be done BUT, like I said, A1 was quick and worked 'after hours'.  I would definitely recommend using A1 Handyman More...

How often do you call a handyman and "surprise" no one bothers to return your call?  Well, this has not been the case with Jeff. He actually answers his phone and he is always courteous and ready to please.  We had Jeff install a new doggy door in the wall and replace several light fixtures.   Everything looks great and my little fur babies love the new door.  Great job A1 and we will be giving you our business in the future.

I was so impressed on how fast Jeff was able to come out. I had sheet rock repair and texture done. The work was great and they were fast and clean. The bonus was the great price he charged for the work. I will use Jeff on all my repairs. More...

I am not a handy guy around the house or for our car. It is something that I readily admit and don't cover up. We all have our strengths and opportunities and this is an opportunity area for me. There exists this brave  unknown in regards to handymen to do jobs in and around the house. So with a leap of faith and some review checking on Yelp, I had my father call A1 Handyman for a leaky outdoor facet. With it being a late Friday afternoon, I thought that we'll get a voice mail or an appointment next week. My dad bounced into my office and said that Dino and the team would be here in about 30 mins. Wow. Impressed. Dino and the team came and unfortunately we had to have the guys crawl under the house to diagnose the leaky outdoor facet. We huddled around the facet and discussed the options. I know, most of you are thinking, " here's where they get you to turn over the wallet "  Nothing is further from the truth. A1 handyman and their guys are more concerned about doing what's right for the best price. We could have decided to fix the pipe under the house, which thanks to the builders 11 years ago is an in a difficult location or we could simply cap it off completely. The price for either was very affordable. We decided to cap the pipe underneath since we use that facet outdoors maybe two or three times a year to fill the kiddie pool for our husky. I would totally recommend A1 handyman for jobs around and outside the house that can't be tackled by yourself. Lastly, Dino and the other guys are polite, professional and there NO issues in regards to their character. I trust these guys in my house and to do work on my house. Thanks ! More...

I had just moved here from CA and found that our garbage disposal was not functional.  I of course came to Yelp to look for a plumber and found A1 Handyman.  I called and Jeff was at my house the same day with a new unit.  The install was quick and clean and Jeff is a real great guy.There are no negatives here, just give them a call for all your handyman needs and know you are getting superior service.  We will be using A1 for all our needs moving forward.  Thank you Jeff!

Totally happy.  Had smoke alarm chirping and they came out that night in Meridian to change it for me on our vaulted ceiling!  Not expensive and very reasonable. They could have taken advantage of the immediate nature of the situation, but they didn't.  THANK YOU SO MUCH, DINO AND JEFF! More...

We called A1 in desperate need of someone coming to our home that day.  We had started installing a fan on our own and it was not working out! He answered and came that evening (we called at 3:30pm on a Sunday! and he still came that day!) He got it taken care of for a pretty competitive price (Lowes had quoted us the same price when we bought the fans but couldn't schedule it for several days out) We had him come back later in the week to put in another fan, same great job.  We told him about a buzzing noise (it sounded like a motor or something) in the fan in the first room.  He took a look and found the motor wasn't good (factory style defect, not installation issue) so we took it back to Lowes and got a new one, he came back a third time free of charge and installed the new motor.  This guy (the owner btw) was great.  He also called before he came and was on time every time (seriously appreciate that with a small child, planning is a good thing around here) We will hire him again anytime we need anything done.  Friendly, fair, good work, what more can you ask for?

Needed 4 new smoke alarms installed and called Jeff around 4PM and he arrived at 7PM and installed them in less than 1/2 hour. He was very pleasant, fast and competent. We would highly recommend him for anything. While he was here we showed him our faucet in the kitchen that was loose and he quickly repaired that too. He did a great job and will definitely call him again with any repairs that we may have. If you need a Handyman this is the one to call. More...

I contacted Jeff with A1 Handyman to work on a few electrical/plumbing issues that needed to be addressed. He answered every phone call and did what he said he would. Very helpful in explaining issues and how he was going to resolve them. Very quick to schedule and got the work done very efficiently. Will be using him again in the future and definitely recommend him. More...

I was so impressed, as a first time customer, that I will use these folks going forward.  I called Jeff with an issue with my front door. He answered the phone - no answering service. He was ready to work extra hours to take care of my needs the same day.  Luckily it was not an emergency, but he was there before noon the next day.  Work was wonderful, and they took care of the issue in short order, for a reasonable fee.  I would recommend them to anyone.  Also very nice to know there's an immediate response in an emergency.

I'm a new Idahoan, just moving  here from California 2 weeks ago.   I know  not  a soul to  get references from and rather  than learn the hard way I  resort to  Yelp (as I always have in  the past) to find the best.  That's how I found Jeff (A1 Handyman).  With these sterling reviews, how could  I  not  call him?Anyway, the prior owners didn't leave my new home  in the greatest condition.   I had a bathroom light switch making a  shorting noise, a running toilet, and a busted security bar.  Jeff answered  his phone right away, told me that he could be there in 2 hours, arrived as he said he would.   The bathroom switch turned out to  be a  spark (yikes).  He replaced that, adjusted the toilet and  repaired the security bar within  an hour.   Being  new in town, I feel  really  blessed to have found  such a reliable service and definitely  plan to use Jeff again.   Thank you, Jeff!

I contacted A1 for some quotes on a couple projects.  They responded quickly and were out the next day.  The explanation of the scope of the projects, timeline, and process was excellent, detailed, and honest.  Am not engaging in the projects now (they appear to be bigger than I expected), but I will definitely use A1 for all size projects in the future.

I have been working with A1 and Jeff for over 6 months now and I can only say great things. Jeff is extremely reliable and responsive. I have had a plumbing emergency and Jeff made it to my home within 5 minutes while a clogged drain backed water up into my home. Jeff stopped the water and did a clean up so fast (4 inches deep) that nothing was even damaged! He had handled electrical, plumbing, general maintenance, and just about everything else we need. He is honest and priced very fairly, and takes the time to explain what's going on and what your options are before he performs and repairs.I would never work with another handyman again! A1 all the way... More...

I had a 70 inch HDTV hung on my living room wall. The bracket was complicated to allow for full articulation. Jeff and Dino took extra care to get it exactly right. All the wires are hidden and I am thrilled with the result. They show up on time, use care to do the job properly and clean up all debris. The price was very fair for the amount of work involved. I will call Jeff again for any household tasks needing skill and top quality work. More...

Jeff and his team did a great job assembling a trailer we had purchased.  They were on time, professional, took care to do the job accurately AND he charged me the quoted price...even though it took him longer than expected!  I'm going to have him back to install two ceiling fans as well. More...

Very price reasonable. Very friendly and professional. I had a hole in the wall and Jeff fixed it. He was able to match the finish on my wall perfectly. Job very well done.

Nice job.  I hired Jeff in an emergency after a windstorm had knocked the gate to the fence off its hinges.  He contacted my tenants and did a killer job remending what there was left of the gate and fence.  I think it was like 95 bucks and he did it super fast.  Thanks for a great speedy job.  I did this over the phone from California.
