Stephen was very knowledgeable and friendly! He helped mount a large curtain rod from my ceiling, and I paid less than I would have had I gone to a local handyman shop or through TaskRabbit. Apparently I had a special kind of ceiling that required a particular type of drill. I appreciated that he was able to explain this to me from the beginning, and that he had this drill!Sep 27, 2019Verified
Steve was extremely professional and helpful and attached three tall bookcases, a heavy mirror and an appliance in the short time he was here. He explained what he was doing thoroughly and showed the utmost care in his work (making sure everything was aligned, centered, and hidden as appropriate). We would not hesitate to hire him again for any issue in our home and we recommend him warmly to anyone looking for handyman help.Nov 24, 2019Verified
Steve was awesome. He helped me hang a big piece of art within hours of reaching out. We’ll definitely look to get Steve back again for our next handyman project!Sep 5, 2018Verified
We have hired Stephen 2 times now and his work is consistent and valuable. I highly recommend him for all your handyman needs.Oct 2, 2018Verified
Stephen was an excellent handyman who assisted me with mounting a guitar on a plaster wall and hanging a disco ball. I had experienced difficulty initially with mounting the guitar due to masonry behind my wall, but Stephen quickly solved the problem and had the right equipment to get the job done. He did a great job with everything asked of him, and I will be reaching out again in the future with any other tasks!Aug 6, 2018Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Yes, I generally charge $65 per hour, or charge a set amount for a job.I have the experience that comes with helping 2500 clients, so I work FAST. I have never had client who thought I wasn't fair about pricing. Yep, that didn't mean they didn't want a lower bid. My experienced handyman friends charge $125 an hour.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I make sure I know as much as possible about a project , and thoroughly communicate with the client to get their expectations , and let them know my thoughts on estimated length of project, as well as cost.
