Introduction: Hi there and thank you for checking out my profile. On Call Handyman understands the complexity of putting all things together or taking them apart. I started out in the moving industry 30 years ago disassembling and assembling household items from fitness equipment, furniture to appliances. After many years of working for a variety of companies, I ventured out on my own 6 years ago. My team and I take pride in providing the highest levels of customer satisfaction. My rates are pretty straight forward. Keep reading for the services that we provide. Handyman Services: We charge $95 per hour. This cost does not include providing any materials or any disposal of waste. We require a DEPOSIT of $89 to secure your appointment. WHAT WE DO: Plumbing: Yes, we do light plumbing at the rates stated above. Services include removal and installation of sink faucets, sinks, vanities, toilets and garbage disposals. If your project requires an Illinois licensed plumber, the rate is $120 per hour, minimum of 1 hour. Water heater installation is a flat rate of $400 per unit not including trip charge to pick up the unit or disposal of old unit. If there are variables based on customer's requests, we will charge by the hour at $120 per hour. Furniture assembly: The rates provided here are just to give you an idea of the cost. For the most accurate estimate, give us a call or shoot a text with your location and what you need assembled, and we will send you back an estimate. Each job is unique; just like our customers. So to ensure the highest quality of service that our customers have come to expect, it is best to contact us directly for pricing. Door installations: Door installation or replacement will vary from site to site. It is best to contact us on our mobile. Send some pictures of what you have, your location and what you are looking to achieve, and we'll provide you with an estimate. Once onsite and able to assess the conditions and scope out the parameters, you will be advised of any changes to the estimate.

If you need a handyman Mike is your man! Excellent in every aspect and work was done top-notch. Honest business man who charged me less than quoted because que finished earlier than the estimated time. I will for sure will hire him again. Thank you Mike!

Michael repaired a few kitchen drawers for me, and also repaired my front door. He seemed to have a vast knowledge and experience of different repairs he can do. He was also a real nice guy, someone you can feel comfortable with entering your home. If you need a home repair, I would highly recommend On Call Handyman! Thanks again!

Amazing Service Experience with On Call Handyman ....Michael was responsive, attentive and immediately figured out the issue I was having in my laundry area. He completed the job quickly and even went a bit beyond that. Excellent service and he’s now my new handyman for projects around my home. I highly recommend using his services.

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

    I'm straight forward with my pricing and upfront if there would be any unforeseeable costs once onsite. I will always provide you with an estimate. The estimate is just an approximation. Many occasions, I'm spot on. There are a few occasions that might take longer ie. wrong door size, the whole foundation is collapsing and need to be repaired before installing... and there are occasions where my hours are under. Those are great. I love helping my customer save money on their projects.

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

    I try to obtain as much clear and concise information and pictures as possible so that I can provide the customer would be best estimate that I possibly can. Then once on site, I will assess the true work conditions and advise my customer if any changes before proceeding with the work.

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

    I have no formal training from institutes but hands on training from my father and grandfather and on the job training. Sometimes, those are the best teachers.
