Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: Thank you so much for considering me for your job. I don’t do a lot of jobs on Thumbtack since I work a full-time job. I recently retired from the Navy after 22 years. My first day as a retired service member was Oct 1 2019. I try to bring professionalism, great conversation, and knowledge everywhere I go. I truly enjoy meeting and helping people. I like to think my prices are competitive with other handymen. I’m sure sometimes that I may be a little more expensive. Quoting jobs can be a challenge at times, but I do my best to be as fair as possible. I’ve been told my prices are lower than others, but I have no way to see other quotes. I just try to be fair.

Toilet Installation or Replacement

Mathias /Chief's Handyman Services was Quality and Excellent! Before his official services began for us, Mathias recommended to us the toilet, American Standard Champion-4 that advertised it could flush 40 golf balls in 1 flush. We did purchase this 'affordable' toilet and Mathias was out next day to install. After a successful install, Mathias cleaned up the old caulk off of the floor and applied new caulk. He then cleaned the floor and even took out the trash. When he left our public restroom was fully cleaned and functionally ready for customers use. We appreciate your help and service to our country! Thank You Mathias!

Garbage Disposal Installation

I couldn't be happier that we used Chief's for our garbage disposal installation. He responded immediately to the job request, came out the next day and was responsive, punctual, courteous, polite, clean and quick! On top of all of that, Chief's was VERY reasonably priced. A+++++

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    They should know the rate before work is started. Discounts can be discussed. Just too many variables.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Ask questions! I make sure to get as much info as possible. During the job and after completion, I seek approval.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have a BS in Aeronautics and 20 plus years of working with tools.
