    Stan's Handyman service is simply the best. I had a tricky, very heavy wood Murphy / Wall-bed with tons of parts / pistons / mechanisms that had to be fully taken apart to fit in a tiny freight elevator. (My stress level high as frame wasn't meant to be fully taken apart.) The bed then had to be installed on an older building plaster wall. Stan's work ethic is fantastic - so responsive - he worked non-stop, has a natural instinct and so wonderful to work with, I can't say enough of how thrilled I am that I had the good fortune to hire Stan for this and what surely will be many projects to come.

    Amazingly quick turnaround from initial call to the completion of a much-needed closet system. Very reasonable rates and tremendously flexible for scheduling the work. I would recommend to anyone who has a to-do list, but not the time to tackle the jobs on their own. Thanks, Stan.

    Stan did a great job, showing up right on time and charging exactly what he said he would. I was very happy with his work and his price!!

    I hired Stan to help move our new gas range from our garage up to our condo, and then install it. Stan was very responsive, arrived right on time, and completed the job quickly and accurately. I'm hiring him again to install a toilet and repair some drywall in my bathroom. I highly recommend Stan and wish I'd found him a long time ago!

    I hired Stan's Handyman Service to take care of my basement when it flooded a few weeks ago. Stan pumped out the water and rodded the drain thoroughly. Stan was professional, efficient and got the job done very quickly! I was extremely pleased with Stan's work ethic and would highly recommend his company to anyone!

    His associate, Steve, came out to give me an estimate. I liked the price but asked him to put it in writing since the repairs are for the purhcase of my home and I needed to provide, in writing, the information to my attorney. After several follow up phone calls in which Steve kept telling me he was going to email me with a proposal in writing, I gave up. It's extremely unprofessional to say to say you're to do something, then not follow through. I would not call this company for future work, nor would I recommend them.

    Hello Julie, I am terribly sorry for what Steve did ,I wish you would of called me I would of been out there imediately to remedy the situation, Isn't that what you normally do is call the owner if theres a problem? I hired Steve after his constant calling me for work, thought I would help a fellow contractor, he took infomation of jobs and tried to steal them for himself , on another job he claimed he had insurance but lied, I gave him $500 to get it, never heard back from him, he also had agreed to a set payment for job but once he got information on job rewrote my contract trying to steal the job. then tried to extort me for 50% of the job, He said he has reviewed a bunch of businesses of thumbtack and I was one of the top he chose. it seems he is a liar and thief His so called Company is Maintenance On Wheels but doesn't have a vehicle nor licence. I would beware Of Maintenance On Wheels _It seems he is not only Hustling customers but Contractors as well I wish there was something I could do to stop him. once again I apologize and if there is anything I could do to remedy this please let me know Stan

    I received a quick reply from Stan after I asked Thumbtack to find me handymen that could help with replacing a water damaged portion of my ceiling. After receiving a half dozen quotes I found Stan's prices the most reason. He even came out for a quick estimate just to be precise. I was so happy with his work on my ceiling that I had him install an extra electrical outlet in a bathroom and install an over-the-range microwave. He worked by the hour and did these side jobs while the separate coats of drywall mud were drying to save time and money. Its a huge relief to find honest and competent professionals out there. I will definitely call Stan again and I've already recommended him to my neighbors and friends. -Anthony
