Chang was excellent! He was on time, was quick and kept me updated on how he was going and what he did. I had a long list of misc. items and after contacting other handyman services they almost always could only do some - not all - of the items I needed. Scheduling was a breeze through Thumbtack & email and they were able to come on short notice. I was very impressed with both the service and price - I would definitely recommend and will use them again!

Doyle was great and not only professional and even made it early after he checked to see if that was okay. Plan on giving Doyle my handyman jobs as I know it’s done right at a reasonable price.

I hired Bundled to paint my place, do minor handyman work I am not capable of myself, and to clean my apartment after all the services. Bundled responded quickly to my request on thumbtack and provided a detailed quote for all the services. I live in a pretty large 2 bedroom, with 14 foot ceilings, it took them 3 days to finish all the work. They did a great job painting, and even had an interior designer to help pick out a color that would work well in my space. I also had them do some minor work like hang up shelves and my television. After all that was done they came in a cleaned, the girl did a great job, really got all that grease off my stove, which I can never seem to do myself. I am very happy with my service, and would highly recommend Bundled to anyone looking to get some work done on their home. I will definitely keep using them for cleaning, and again if I decided to do more work in my place.

I had a few projects that I needed repaired at my home this past week. The crew came to my house and had everything completed in a few hours. They were even able to fix my doorbell after another handyman told me it was not fixable. From painting to plumbing and electric, this crew does it all. Hire them, and you will not be disappointed.

Very glad I hired him he was able to do most things on my punch list which was long the few things he could not he explained why and it's just that I have to buy some things in order for him to come back to complete some other tasks I am definitely hiring him again when I am ready to complete the other tasks I have at hand in January plus he did a great job and I am going to get a quote for painting as well I could see this being my go-to person for future needs. Very great value other handyman I was looking at online were three times as much so great price for the value he puts into his work.

Chicago Local Handyman is professional, reliable and prices are competitive. Jaime Lucas came out and did a great job repairing some wood rot, getting rid of unwanted cables, and doing some general touch up on the exterior of our house. I'll recommend him.

Paris and Albert were a great pair to work with. Paris had excellent communication from beginning to end, he explained everything they would do and would need to purchase for the job. They were also accommodating when I asked for additional help with picking up and hanging artwork. I researched a lot of contractors and handyman and they were by far the most reasonably priced. Would highly recommend it to others.

I had several handyman tasks that I had put off for months, Rich came highly recommended and I was not disappointed. He was very professional and swift with each task we had gone over. I'm glad to not have any shaky chairs and unassembled furniture around me. Will definitely use him again and recommend his service - I believe he offers a variety.

I contacted South Shire to change the plumbing under the sink in the kitchen of one of my rental properties, they were very professional in going at the requested time, meeting with my tenant, and offering an amazing job for a value I could not even get another handyman company to come look at the initial job.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How do you find a good handyman?

Finding a good handyman can change your life. Within days, the endless list of insurmountable tasks that were either out of your skill range or impossible to fit into your busy schedule can be completed. If you know you want help but aren’t sure how to hire the right pro, ask these questions to find the right fit:

  • What is your work experience? If you are putting in a tile backsplash, you want someone experienced with the task, not someone who generally does painting and junk removal.
  • How much do you charge? Handymen often charge hourly rates that vary based on the complexity of the task they’re hired to do, as well as flat rates for standard jobs. Be clear about what they’ll charge before you hire them.
    • On that note, discuss payment details. It’s wise not to pay all the money up front, especially for larger projects. You may be able to pay a deposit for materials and pay the remainder upon project completion.
  • How long will the job take you to complete? If the handyman is as busy as you are and a fence repair is going to take months, you should probably find another qualified handyman for the job.

Read client reviews and follow up with references to make sure you’re choosing the right handyman for your projects. For more, check out our tips for smart hiring on Thumbtack.

What does a handyman do?

A handyman is a skilled laborer who provides basic home repairs. Anyone can call themselves a handyman, although most who do so are skilled with repairs and home projects. Reading reviews is a good way to determine their fitness for your job. The tasks a handyman can perform include assembling furniture, painting interiors and exteriors, repairing fences, repairing broken doors or replacing trim, hanging lights, hooking up appliances, and much more. Handymen may have flat fees for certain services, or charge an hourly rate. Handyman rates are often lower than those of a contractor, as they don’t have the same specialization. Some states have no limit on the work a handyman can perform, while others do. For example, California’s Building and Professions Code section 7048 (small operations) permits handymen to provide work similar to that of a contractor (floor installation, painting, etc.) provided the total cost of labor and materials does not exceed $500. A handyman is a great resource for minor home repairs at a lower cost than a licensed contractor, but for more complex projects, it pays to hire a specialized contractor. Fore more, check out our tips for smart hiring on Thumbtack.

How much does a handyman charge?

The national average rate for handyman jobs is $90-$160. A handyman performs general maintenance and repairs for residential and commercial properties. A handyman may charge a flat fee for standard services that take a predictable amount of time, such as installing a new appliance, as well as an hourly rate for larger projects such as digging out and replacing a rotted fence post. A cost-saving strategy when hiring a handyman is to bundle all the tasks you want them to do into one visit to make the most of any minimum service fee. Hourly rates for a handyman can average $50-$100 per hour. Pricing will depend on skill and experience required for the job, as well as regional labor rates. Here are a few examples of average handyman flat rates.

  • Attic ladder replacement: $150.
  • Toilet replacement: $75.
  • Ceiling fan and light fixtures: $75.
  • Faucet replacement: $125.
  • Garbage disposal: $75.

Can a handyman do plumbing?

In some states, a handyman can provide plumbing services, but it may be in your best interest to call a plumber, particularly for issues more major than unclogging a drain or attaching a new sink. Hiring a plumber is important because mishandling your water and gas lines has the potential to do great damage to your home, your family’s health, or even the safety of your neighborhood. A handyman is not legally required to have any training or licensing in plumbing matters, while a licensed plumber has undergone years of education and on-the-job training. In some cases, homeowners insurance won’t cover damage caused by plumbing repair done by an unlicensed handyman.

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, most plumbers learn their trade through a four- or five-year apprenticeship with 2,000 hours of paid on-the-job training. They also receive classroom education including “safety, local plumbing codes and regulations, and blueprint reading. They also study mathematics, applied physics, and chemistry. After completing an apprenticeship program, plumbers … are considered to be journey workers, qualifying them to perform duties on their own,” according to the DOL. Licensed plumbers should do continuing education to keep abreast of safety and technology changes. Poor plumbing can lead to sewage backups, a flooded home or even natural gas leaks, so it’s best to leave it in the hands of a specialized professional.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
