What services can Handymen help with?

Some of the common services your handyman can help with include:

  • Moving heavy items like upholstery and furniture
  • Changing light bulbs and light fixtures
  • Clearing and maintaining rooms or gardens
  • Repairing and maintaining tools and equipment
  • Installing windows and doors
  • How do I choose the best Handyman?

    There are several factors worth considering when choosing your handyman. These include:

    • Reputation - Depending on the scale of maintenance or size of repair, compile a list of up to three or four reputable tradesman companies online to compare what each has to offer. Rather than looking at websites, focus on customer feedback and reviews which you can see on their Bark profile page.

    • Membership - Check to see if the company is a member of any association such The Handyman Association and The UK Guild of Handymen.

    • Quotations - Make sure to ask for multiple written quotations as opposed to hiring the first handyman that you get in touch with. Check to see if the company has public liability insurance.

    • Photos - Find handymen that can prove their work with success stories, projects, and real photos. Have a look at their previous projects and ask for details about the actual steps, the time they took, and costs.

    • Specialisms - Look for an experienced handyman that specialises in residential or commercial properties depending on your needs.

    • Appointments - Your handyman service professional should provide you with a specific and confirmed appointment and be clear about when the job will start and finish.

    • Tools - Professionals always bring their own tools and materials. A good handyman would never ask you to supply your own.

    • Charging - A reputable handyman service should only charge you while your handyman is working for you. You should not have to pay a fee to cover travel, for example. Your handyman should respect your home and work both efficiently and carefully. They should also clean up after the maintenance job is completed.

    You can be confident that any of the Bark local handymen listed will give you a reliable and professional service.

    How do I check my Handyman's credentials?

    There is no formal training required to be a handyman. Although they usually have experience with hardware tools and electrical equipment as well as a basic understanding of electrical, plumbing, or HVAC systems. It is also worth looking out for City & Guilds, BTEC, and NVQ qualifications in related fields.

    Before you choose a handyman or handywoman, make sure that you read their customer testimonials and reviews on their website or Bark profile.

    Handymen are often happy to carry out basic electrical tasks such as changing light bulbs or installing simple light fittings. However, they are not qualified electricians so are not insured or qualified to do any electrical work that requires certification. If you need electrical work, it’s best to contact an electrician or look for a handyman who is also a qualified electrician.

    When you’re looking for a handyman, it’s important to ensure that they have the appropriate insurance. As a minimum, they’ll need public liability insurance which covers accidental damage to your property and any accidents that may occur. You should always ask handymen about their insurance policy before hiring them.

    The best way to ensure that you’re choosing a reliable and trustworthy handyman is to opt for a handyman who has good reviews. Some people are able to get recommendations from friends and family, but what do you do if you don’t know anyone who has hired a handyman before? You can search for a handyman on Bark for free, where you can browse the profiles of local handymen and read genuine reviews from former clients to help you to make the right decision.
