About this pro

How does your business stand out?

It doesn't stand out. It looks right, it looks perfect, it looks like the one on the showroom floor. It looks like the one in the catalog. When you see the finished product, you can't tell that we had to supply extra parts, or do a work-around because the manufacturer messed up, and things did not fit together the way they were supposed to.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I have clients in McMansions all over the area. One celebrity client, and a number of clients who drive Tesla's. But, I also have senior citizen clients who are often on fixed incomes. I do not repair or restore high value antique furniture. These seniors often have broken or disfunctional particle board furniture, and I can get it back to functional with a simple repair (using glue, and or some screws and brackets). This is rewarding for me. On some of the large IKEA jobs, when we are done, the room looks like something out of a magazine, and that is rewarding. Setting up large-scale storage systems in; garages, basements, walk-in closets so people can begin to get their clutter under control is rewarding. Now, it is very rare for me drive home angry. When I did white-collar office work using my EXCEL and WORD skills, I drove home angry all the time. Being nice and polite to coworkers who are; bullies, lazy, rude, etc. is very taxing. Don't get me wrong, they aren't all like that. But when they are, well.....

    Reese and his assistant Jeff did a fantastic job on my art/photo hanging project. The rate was reasonable and they scheduled a time that worked with my schedule. They showed up at 10 am on the dot (our appointed time) and the work was superb. They hung multiple pieces of fine art along with over 40 family photos and made very nice-looking wall collages. I will definitely use them again! Thanks! Jill

    We had a top of the line patio installed this past spring at our home in Park Ridge. The final touch was to have a gazebo installed so we connected with Reese. I was amazed at Reese's whole "process." He comes completely prepared with every tool, solution, etc. for any job. This was a really detailed & intricate job that took a ton of preparation putting the pieces together before the whole gazebo was installed. I HIGHLY recommend Reese and team and look forward to having him do our next major project!

    did not have the right tools to complete the job; I wound up having to tighten/reassemble almost the entire rig - kinda disappointing
    Reese T. Apr 24, 2017

    hi John: I am very sorry you were not pleased with the work. We hand tightened everything securely. My notes indicate the work was done on January 4th, 2017. That you are leaving a bad review 3.5 months after the work, without even reaching out to me raises questions. Had you reached out earlier, I would have gladly made a return trip to address any issues, at no charge. As far as the tools: I phoned Rogue Fitness and spoke with their support team. I asked them specifically what size drivers do I need for the weight rack that you had ordered. They told me 1.0 inch hex drives, which I went out and purchased. However, the weight rack you ordered from Rogue required 1.5 inch hex sockets. We gave one of the hex-nuts to your wife, and she went out and tried to purchase a set. The guy at the hardware store gave her the wrong set. By the end of the day, my hands were hurting from using the sharp-edged 1.5 inch wrenches provided by Rogue Fitness. I was so annoyed by the situation that I went out and purchased a 1.5 inch hex socket the next weekend from an auto supply store. Your wife indicated that you owned this product at your prior residence. You ordered the new set fully tricked out. However you did not leave us with specific instructions regarding the placement of all the accessories. That set was secure when we finished it. Your wife, who seems pretty smart, supervised all the work as you were not there, and did tip us for the day's work. Again, I regret the situation. Reese Turbin

    Reese was an awesome professional worker. Him and his associate arrived on time and they assisted me in putting up Ikea cabinets in my kitchen.

    ⭐️⭐️Cabinet Pulls⭐️⭐️
    Reese and a helper came and installed new cabinet pulls. These are new cabinets with no pre drilled holes so Reese had to start from the beginning, measuring and installing the handles.

Reese and his associate worked diligently through the day to get it all done. They approached the work methodically and in an organized manner. He takes his work seriously and comes prepared with all the right material and equipment/tools. He has clearly invested in all the right equipment. He is NOT a one-tool box guy. This was a well done job.

    IKEA cabinet done right
    Reese impressed me with his concern for safety, problem solving, and execution. I had new IKEA cabinets placed in my kitchen eight years ago, and one of them crashed. I uploaded the information and a picture onto Thumbtack and requested a new cabinet put in, but also I requested the person reassemble or reenforce my other cabinets. I was fearful of being in my own kitchen. Reese called and expressed what we needed to do. He told us the parts we would need. His first and foremost concern was for our safety, and that was before even hiring him. His estimate was fair and was outlined in detail. He and his coworker came at the scheduled time. I heard them problem solve and discuss the options that were available. Reese also included me in the discussion and laid out all the information candidly. Along the way he would stop and explain what they were doing and check with me to make sure he had my permission. This was not an easy job. They reinforced the cabinets that did not fall and they assembled and hung the new cabinet correctly. I love IKEA cabinets and I wish I knew of Reese eight years ago. The price Reese quoted was the price I paid. Reese is a professional. He takes his workmanship seriously.

    Art Installation of a large / heavy piece (5'x5', 60lbs). Hanging of shelves and curtain rods throughout the house. Reese and his Assistant were great. I cannot speak highly enough about them. Prompt, professional, knowledgeable, and willing to go the extra mile. Reese even took the time to look and fix some drawers in our new home. They spent the full day installing / hanging all of our pieces throughout the home. They meticulously taped off and measured all areas before drilling. They had hooks, screws, and anchors for any type of hanging job that was required. Reese even took the time to send a couple of links to me about solutions for other jobs around the house. I appreciated him spending a few minutes here and there to educate me in regards to screws and anchors. I would definitely recommend him and his assistant. I would definitely hire them again.

    I did this job on May 24, 2016. I had substantial email back and forth prior to the job. For the last few years, on every Thumbtack bid; I attach a fine-print document that deals with issues and problems that can arise related to the work that I do. In many cases, I am on site for the entire day. I have learned the hard way that some clients will not permit use of their bathrooms. So, in my fine-print document I address the issue of bathroom access. I request that if a client does not permit bathroom access, that they notify me ahead of time. We arrived at the clients after a very long drive. I asked to use the bathroom, and was told; NO. I thought about declining the job and leaving, as I was pretty stirred up about no advance notice on the bathroom issue. I decided to go ahead and do the job. The job went well, during the day the client asked me about some other IKEA assembly jobs (we were there to do an all day IKEA job). I told the client that I really couldn't at the moment, as I was focused on doing the work at hand (and I was, I tend to be an intense focused guy, I would never be deliberately rude to a client, and the job was complex). After speaking on the phone with the client on July 13, 2016; she told me she gave me the low review 48 days after doing the job, because she felt I was rude when I declined to look at the future IKEA projects. Maybe I was abrupt because I HAD TO GO TO THE BATHROOM! The bid on this job was on the low side, $299.00, and at the end of the job, the client gave us a $51.00 tip. I brought my assistant and a trainee (a long time friend who was recently laid off). I figured that it would be a good training experience (and it was, that friend has turned into a valued employee). I did see that this client posted more IKEA assembly jobs on Thumbtack shortly after our job. But I did not bid on those. While I have no concrete proof, I suspect that something else is going on in this client's life, and she is taking it out on me.

    Installed 4 Moen grab bars in bath areas. Price was fair. I was concerned that the end covers were loose and not snapped tight. This was mainly a cosmetic issue. Reese contacted Moen to go over the issue; an indication of his conscientiousness.
    Reese T. May 17, 2016

    For anyone who thinks that all the reviews on these websites are phony. The above review is an example of a real one. We installed the bars (four in two bathrooms). We snapped the cover plates into place, they spun but were flush to the tile. We called MOEN (day 1, on speakerphone), and the first MOEN rep said there was nothing that could be done, it was a flaw in the cover plates. Customer decided not to listen, called MOEN on Day 2, got a different rep, and was told that the plates should not spin. Customer emailed me, and phoned me, insisting he wasn't satisfied. Late on day 2, I told customer that if MOEN sent out new bars, I would install them no charge. Multiple calls to MOEN on day 3, MOEN plans to ship four new bars, FED-EX, no charge. Day 4, MOEN plans to ship their expensive anchors to me, no charge, to be used on the re-install of the new bars, and a shipping label to send the old bars back. After talking to MOEN for four days straight, customer finally understands that this is merely a cosmetic thing, and decides to live with the bars I installed. So; over four hours of aggravation, emails and phone calls after a 2.5 hour job. And, because MOEN has a live ship function (meaning replacement parts go out immediately). I will probably have to take time to send the replacement product back. There is no pleasing some people.

    Reese and his partner arrived right on time and were fully prepared- true professionals. We had a big job- several pieces to be built and mounted to the wall- and not only did they work non-stop to get them done, they also supplied missing/additional pieces, thoughtfully made suggestions that might impact future usage of the items, and cleaned up everything afterward. I felt very comfortable having them working autonomously in my home and will definitely contact them again when I need some work around the house. A great experience all around.

    Reese did a wonderful job. He was very professional; he and his assistant entered my home respectfully by covering their feet. He was prepared in every way, including having a lighting fixture that was needed because the room he worked in was dim. The job of constructing a full over full bunk bed with a trundle and drawer stairs was complicated and he skillfully executed with diligence and precision. He made sure all emptied boxes were flattened, taped and ready for disposal. He brought his own heavy duty garbage for discarded material. ...highly recommended!

    Do not hire this guy to do cabinets. Bid on my work and backed out at the 11th hour, leaving me in a total lurch. He backed out because he is not licensed and was really weird about supplying proof of insurance. Extremely tempermental to work with. I would not ever use him for anything based on my experience.
    Reese T. Sep 1, 2015

    OK: You originally posted this job on Thumbtack in June, my notes say that I gave you a bid on June 23. We had some back and forth then I did not hear anything. Then about two months later, you reposted the job on Thumbtack, after that second posting (I did not bid on the second posting) you reached out to me. I do have a Handyman Insurance policy that includes the 'additional named insured clause' which you specified as being necessary. I gave you the contact information for my agent. You dragged your feet getting him the information. After you were provided with a certificate, you came back and said it had to be filled out a different way. Then out of the blue, I had to sign a form for the building management which requires contractors doing remodeling work to have Workers Comp insurance. I was completely upfront with you about the fact that I do not have a license and do not carry Workers Comp Insurance, and that I did not want to lie about it. You assured me it would be no problem. You also assured me it would be OK to leave the old cabinets in the alley outside the building (I made it clear I do not do trash hauling). I had a conference call with the building manager and the building maintenance guy. They were in agreement that I would need Workers Comp insurance, and that I would NOT be allowed to leave the old cabinets in the alley. It feels like you were trying to do this job on the cheap, and then put things on me. You did not do your homework regarding the rules of the Condo Association. That is why I withdrew from this job, a week before the start. If you had done your homework, and included all of this vital information in the original posting back in June, this whole mess could have been avoided.

    Reese T. Dec 18, 2015

    Your Welcome, Cerena! This review is from a new niche customer. People who can do most, but not all of the work in large IKEA kitchen and closet systems. For IKEA Kitchens, there are three stages, pre-assembly, hanging, and post-assembly (doors, drawers, shelves, knobs and pulls, toe-kicks, etc. all are done after the shells are hung). They did the pre, and post assembly of the 20 cabinets. (They did have an official IKEA master plan). Over two days, we hung the 20 cabinets, corrected one mistake, did the cutouts for plumbing and electrical in a couple of the cabinets. The: tile-back-splash, overhead microwave, stone counter-tops, sink and dishwasher hookup, were all farmed out to specialists.

    Reese and his associate were outstanding. I had a houseful of Ikea furniture that I needed assembled. Reese looked at the list of items I needed assembled and asked questions that I would never have known to ask. There were a few additional pieces that weren't clear that needed to be ordered, but Reese - based on his experience - knew the additional items would be necessary. He and his colleague arrived early the day of assembly. They were very professional and had all tools ready to go. They set up and works very thoroughly. All of my furniture looks great. The wage he charges is extremely fair (probably on the low side). I would use him again in a heartbeat; excellent work.

    Reese was outstanding. Start to finish. Called a few days before to reconfirm. Called the day before to set the time. Showed when he said he would. Reese and Mike hung 3 48" IKEA Besta cabinets horizontally side by side by side in my living room for 12 total feet. When the 3rd cabinet was hung and it turned out to be 1/16" low they shrugged their shoulders and said don't worry we'll get it right. And they did. Totally level and plumb. He adjusted the cabinet doors to hang straighter, too. It looks fantastic and my wife is thrilled. I built the cabinets and thought that I could probably hang 'em. My wife insisted that I don't try. She couldn't have been more correct. Not a chance would I have gotten them to look so seamless. I think his price was more than fair, even low. I paid him 30% more because of the great job and the true scope of work involved. Keep him busy.

    undefinedReese put together a TV stand by Artisan that I ordered from home depot. I found Reese to be very knowledgeable about putting this type of furniture together and I highly recommend him. The TV stand came out beautiful , I love it and I am very happy with the work Reese did. I would never had been able to put it together myself as the TV stand came in about 1000 pieces. I also liked that Reece quickly got back to when communicating to him via email as I had a lot of questions. He was also flexible in scheduling a time that would fit my work schedule. Furthermore, when I had an issue with one of the doors on the TV stand Reese called me and walked me through over the phone on how to fix it. I don’t think many people would have done that and I really feel he went the extra mile to make sure I was happy with his work and my new TV stand.

    Reece Showed Up On Time. He Was Clean, Professional, And Personable.He Even Put On Shoe Covers! He Completed A Computer Desk In Half The Time People Said It Took And He Did It On His Own With My Assistance To Hold Something Once For A Minute. The Finished Product Was Amazing And I Was Extremely Happy With The Outcome That I Had To Tip. Reece's Cost Was Extremely ReasonablE And I Plan On Using Him Again For Assembly Services.

    Reese & Christian handled extensive plaster repair that was damaged from electrical work in an old house. They were very professional and courteous. They did well to communicate the work before hand and were great about checking in with us along the way to make sure we were updated about the work and had the opportunity to answer any questions. Reese also did extra research for us about ongoing work that we are interested in which was very much appreciated. We will definitely use them for future work!

    Reese uninstalled several major appliances and disassembled an L-shaped desk in preparation for moving. He was able to come on short notice and did a very thorough and quick job with all of the tasks. And he charged a very reasonable fee for his work. I would absolutely hire him again, except that I’m moving out of the area.

    Reese came all the way out to my house (a good distance from where he lives) and did a fantasic job assembling my elliptical, and even did some research ahead of time since he had never assembled my model before. I would definitely recommend Reese to anyone looking for someone to assemble their exercise equipment.

    Reese (and his assistant Christian) we're great. They were able to successfully mount my 55" flat screen over my fireplace, even with my building throwing in a few hiccups here and there (existing wiring and weird stud placement). They were both professional and personable. I'd recommend them to any friend. Thanks again guys!!

    Reese did an phenomenal job mounting 3 of my televisions. He had the needed supplies (longer cables, tools. etc.) to get the job done. It took a long time, but in the end, I am enjoy his hard work whenever sit down to watch television. I would definitely recommend him for future jobs.

    I highly recommend Reese and Christian for any job you need done. I couldn't be happier with these gentlemen. They arrived on time and had all the tools they needed. They carefully studied the written furniture assembly instructions, which were not exactly easy to follow, yet they assembled a rather large home office to perfection. No scratches, no problems, just two professionals who made me very happy to see my home office completed and looking amazing. I was so happy that they were so friendly with my dogs. I was quite chatty as they worked because I was so excited to see each piece being assembled and they engaged in conversations with me. We had a great time. I couldn't be happier with their professional assembly and the perfection of my new home office. It was such a pleasure and I highly recommend this duo for any job. They can do it all! I will be spreading the word about this company and I'm sure I will hire them again. Sending a huge THANK YOU for Reese and Christian. .

    Reese and Christian were top notch. I have twice hired them hang a flat screen TV with cables routed through the wall. On both occasions their work was high quality and efficient. And they cleaned up! It was like they were never there. I plan to hire them for my future apartment projects.

    Reese did a great job overall! He arrived with his assistant exactly on time and got right to work. I had several (5) ikea furniture pieces that needed to be put together and they completed them without any trouble. They even cleaned up the empty boxes and carried them down to the trash. The price was as quoted, and I would highly recommend Reese Turbin Services!

    Reese and his associate are great. I had extenuating circumstances with a lot of my pieces but they were really, really nice and made an effort to try and get my life better as opposed to just constructing my furniture. They built my pieces with my room in mind, which is much more than I could have asked them to do. They dealt with a motley crew of roommates and were extremely charming and helpful. Plus, their work was super clean and safer I've had a great experience with them and strongly recommend them!

    I am glad I found Reese. He is very patient, flexible, diligent and most helpful. He went beyond the actual contracted services in that he thinks of our best interests - I consider this most important. He even picked up a closet I needed to bring home for him to fix. I did not have roof racks or a larger car, so it helped me that I didn't have to bother my friends to help me bring it home. Most importantly, his rates are very competitive. I would recommend him anyday, and will use him for future assignments. I wish Reese all the best. Suggestion to potential customers: If you realize his rates are competitive, do not bargain. We owe it to him, and people like him. He is doing something which we either do not want to, or cannot do, and he is a hard worker, so a few bucks here and there won't matter. In the end, he delivers quality service.

    Reese Turbin Services charges reasonable rates and perform their services very well. Reese and his associate Chris were prompt, courteous, and very professional. They got the job done in about a little over 2 hours (Assembled 2 Book Cases). RTS: has plenty of spare parts, mallets, drills, glue,screw drivers, Manuals, and blankets (To protect your furniture while it's being assembled) They'll check your furniture manufacturer website for the model/make/number to get an accurate quote for your specific type of job. One of the parts in one of the kits was faulty so they consulted with me first, then fixed the situation immediately. In my opinion, they have a lot of experience doing this and are nice / interesting guys to talk to as well.

    Reese is the right man to hire-- Affordable, efficient and very responsible. I paid him to assemble furniture such as sofa, bookcase and desk. Thanks to him I now have a nice living room! I would highly recommend choosing him.

Q&A

What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
For now, it is a half day minimum. It was a painful decision, but I had to start turning down small one piece assembly jobs in order to make my business profitable.
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
For assembly jobs; if the customer is able to give me specific product information, I can usually obtain the assembly manual, review it, and come up with a job estimate that I will almost always stand by. I do not do hourly rates. If I miscalculate, and the job takes several hours longer than anticipated, that is my loss. I don't like being rushed. Recently, I did a job for a client who had a tradesman in for some other job. That tradesman had to make four trips to his car, and billed the client for the time. That client was not planning on bringing that tradesman back for more work. For the pictures and mirrors, if they are large and heavy, it helps to have the customer email me photos of the backside of the item. For older heavy items, often times the wires on the back are frayed, and new wiring and possibly D-ring straps must be put in place.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Dad. I think the one lesson above all others was: "If there is a problem, you do not have a tantrum, use your brain and figure it out". I have gone through a number of assistants, the good ones all learned pretty much the same thing from their Dad.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I saw a feature on ABC World News about a website that hooked people up.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Furniture assembly from places like IKEA, OVERSTOCK.COM, SAUDER, SOUTH SHORE, WEST ELM, etc. Swingsets & Playsets. Storage Sheds. The Rubbermaid & Closetmaid wire-shelf storage systems. Exercise & cardio equipment assembly. Due to customer demand, I'm now doing a great deal of hanging: Pictures, Mirrors, Heavy Wall mounted sculptures, Wine Racks, Tool Racks, Storage Racks, etc.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
In October of 2016, we assembled seven desks and a bookcase for a small CPA office. It was an all day project for three men. The client is a repeat. And is an Architect who does hands on design. Hopefully the relationship will generate 2 or 3 large jobs a year.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
What tools and experience will they be bringing to the job? We bring: special drive bits, small cordless drills, moving blankets, a pile of spare hardware (very important, if one small bolt is missing, or a screw breaks, that can put the entire job on hold, until a new part is obtained)
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Details! Please keep in mind a few things; all these internet tradesmen, handymen, etc. are hungry for work, and we are not clairvoyant. On this website, we have to pay to bid on a job. That is how Thumbtack makes it's money, and I am OK with that. Whether I invoice you $1.00 or $1,000,000 I get to keep 100% of the invoice. Many other players out there take 30% or more. If someone posts a job, and the description is vague, then I will not pay to bid. There are a great many of these internet job hookup websites or platforms out there. Yes, they are entitled to make a living. But how they do that, and who they charge, and how much they charge, varies, a great deal. There is a job-hookup website that I am not on. They are big. They run TV commercials all the time. They claim to be free. Sorry, there is no free lunch. It is very expensive for a tradesman to join this website and pay for leads (and you do not get a lot of choice over the leads that are sent to you). If you find a tradesman through this website, and hire him: Those website costs will be passed along when he invoices you for services performed.
