12/3/17 Was the 2nd time I hired Brian from Queens Junk Removal /Moving to remove junk from my apartment. I live in a 4th floor walk up and once again, Brian and his assistant Mack were punctual and prompt, Brian confirming the appointment the day before, and texting the day of the appointment that he was on the way. They arrived on time and fully prepared for the job. They worked very hard, quickly, and efficiently to remove alot of stuff, including a large metal frame from a sofa that I used to have. They are very professional and never leave a mess or damage with their work. They are very polite, courteous and responsive to all matters. The cost is very reasonable and I received a discount from Brian because this was the 2nd time I hired him. I highly recommend Brian of Queens Junk Removal/Moving and thank him for his excellent work and professionalism!

This was our first experience using Thumbtack and the job required that our newly delivered trundle-day bed (in 3 boxes) be moved up 2 flights of stairs, unpacked, and then assembled. We selected David Carota to do the job, and we are so glad we did. David is reliable, punctual, and a true professional. He reached out to us to confirm the day & time, and asked us if we could send pictures of the final product before he arrived to get an idea of what it would look like. We were extremely impressed with his work ethic. He not only worked quickly but also very carefully & methodically. It took him 2 hours to complete the job, where normally it would take 2 people about 2 hrs to do, according to the directions. His price was also very reasonable. He has expertise in other areas including woodworking, metal work, etc. We were so pleased with his work that we're trying to think of other jobs he can help us with so that we can request him again!! It is rare to find someone who is so well-rounded & such a pleasure to work with. Thank you very much, David!!

Rich's Top Notch was awesome! Having not cleaned up our leaves all fall, when I called Rich, I was amazed by how responsive he was in coming out to our property, giving a price quote and discussing with me the other yard cleanup options which he offers. Then, he got us into his schedule later that week before a major snow storm. When I got home after he had done his work, I almost couldn't recognize our property - it was so clean! I don't think there was a scrap of a leaf anywhere. I will definitely use Rich's Top Notch again!

Elmer and his assistant arrived ready to do the job. They had the right tools and were persistent in checking to make sure the measurements for my mail slot was precise. Elmer was professional and installed my mail slot correctly despite the difficulty that came with working with a door which was partially metal. I also found him to be friendly and approachable. His price was very reasonable! As a result, I was able to discuss other future projects with him. I am looking forward to using Elmer again because of his skills and expertise!

I am hiring Chuck On the Go Movers for an upcoming office move and would 100000% recommend this company for any of your moving and removal jobs.

Two challenging furniture jobs, that I am very happy with, excellent communication keeping me involved at different stages. The first a 115 inch long metal frame table that had to go up to a second floor apartment, Jeff came up with a solution and executes a perfect job to provide a way to detach and re-assemble the two parts. The second was to encase large slabs of rock into a bed footboard, Jeff again had a good grasp of the aesthetics, the piece weighed about 400 LBs and once again a perfect job of detaching metal rods and re-building the piece in way that no one would ever know it was damaged.

I needed a handy man to shave off part of my front door (a hollow metal door) that wasn't level, so I couldn't open my front door with an entry rug in place. Luca came out on a Saturday afternoon to see if simply adjusting the hinges would do the trick. His wife accompanied him as he's from Italy and his primary language is Italian. They were very sweet and thorough. Unfortunately the issue could not be solved my adjusting the hinges, so we made a plan for him to return today. He was amazing! He did a very thorough job and was extremely thoughtful when it came to protecting the building. It was not an easy job, a very heavy, tall door, but he fixed it in about 2 hours. I very much recommend Luca and I will definitely hire him for any home improvements in the future. Sari

David repaired my metal reindeer- someone broke his legs and pulled them off the stand. David was able to repair it fabulously and at a great price! I would definitely recommend David for metalwork repairs, but he's also an amazing artist so I would recommend him for that as well!!!!

Job: Removal of 780 square feet of old 2x4 pressure treated decking with tons of rusty nails protruding. Ken arrived same day for estimate. After quoting a very fair price, we made an appointment for the job to be done. Ken arrived with his partner right on time. After backing up their beautiful dump truck to my very large pile of old lumber, the truck was loaded and gone before I knew it. These guys were fast, professional, reasonably priced, and prompt. When they got done, there wasn't a scrap of the old lumber left. I was so impressed by ProSource that I actually recommended them to a friend that same day. They will be my first call if I ever need a removal service again!!!

Exclusive Holmes (Curtis) was fantastic. He was very friendly and professional. I thought my job (installing blinds) would be simple, but it turns out the blinds I ordered were too big. Curtis was prepared and used his saw to cut the metal and get the blinds to fit into place. He ended up saving me money and time since I did not have to order a new set and call another repair person. The job looked great!

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    How does a welder work?

    A welder is person who works (typically) with metal. Welding can be done with a wide variety of metals including aluminum, wrought iron, stainless steel, carbon steel and galvanized steel. A welder uses extreme heat to meld together metal pieces to repair or create metal structures. Welding is used for automotive, structural, plate, decorative, pipe, restoration and other metalwork projects. Some items that are made by welding are custom fences, metal gates, interior decorative metalwork, and safety features such as window bars or safety gates for children or pets. The average national cost for welding services ranges from $100 to $150, although pricing can be higher depending on project scale and whether the cost of the metal is included. Hourly rates for welding services can range from $65 to $125. Welders may have a minimum service fee, especially if they are performing the work at your location. Welding can be dangerous work without the proper safety equipment, so welders work with protective masks and body coverings to prevent damage to their vision or skin. Some examples of welding repairs could be $25-$30 for tacking together small items (such as patio chairs), or $35-$100 for larger repairs on metal furniture. Bigger projects, such as a baby gate to seal off the top of a staircase, could cost $550-$750. This price would include one full day of metal cutting, one full day of welding and construction, one to one and a half full days of grinding and painting, and a few hours of installation.

    How long is welding training?

    Because there are different paths to learning to weld, there’s no single timeline for welding training. Some people attend school part-time while working their current job, while others can focus full-time on their welding training courses. People interested in learning how to weld as a hobby can also take classes from professional welders, such as at KCMA & Services in Waterloo, Indiana.

    Expect to take at least two years to go from welding newbie to American Welding Society Certified Welder. A junior college Certificate of Completion welding course is two semesters full-time, or 10 units of coursework. With this certificate, students are qualified for an apprenticeship or internship, rather than a full-time entry-level job. Welding apprenticeships range from 6,000 to 8,000 hours long, equalling three to four years at 2,000 hours per year. Some junior colleges, such as Cerritos College in the Los Angeles area, offer more in-depth welding programs that lead to different welding certifications, such as arc welding and tungsten gas arc welding. These take three to four semesters to complete, so you could be qualified for an entry-level job in about two years of full-time study. Alternatively, you can prepare for employment more quickly through an intensive vocational program at a trade school. For instance, Ohio’s Lincoln Electric Company offers a comprehensive program that prepares people for a welding career in just 20 weeks and 600 hours of hands-on instruction.

    How many types of welding are there?

    Welding is a method of fusing together two or more pieces of metal using electricity or flame. Welding is used to construct buildings, make metal sculptures, build and repair cars, make gates and furniture, and for many other practical and aesthetic uses. There are multiple types of welding. Here is an overview of the most popular methods:

    • Stick welding: Formally known as shielded metal arc welding, stick welding uses extreme heat applied at the seam of two separate metals to melt them together. A third (intermediary) metal may also be incorporated for added strength. As the metals cool, they are bonded together.
    • Metal inert gas (MIG) welding: Formally known as gas metal arc welding, MIG welding uses a tool to feed metal wire into the weld puddle while an electrical arc melts the wire, which will fuse to the base metal upon cooling.
    • Tungsten inert gas (TIG) welding: Formally referred to gas tungsten arc welding, TIG welding is a similar process MIG welding, but instead of using a tool that continuously feeds metal wire into the weld puddle, the welder must hold and manually feed the stick.
    • Gas welding: A mix of flammable gas and oxygen is used to heat metal to the melting point.
    • Forge welding: Forging metal is an ancient art that involves heating two pieces of metal until they are molten, then hammering them together.

    Where can I take welding classes?

    Your options for welding classes depend on where you live and whether you’re willing to travel. Many skilled professionals offer private or group welding classes across the U.S. Some high schools offer classes for teens, but many people learn from a private trainer or in a junior college or vocational school. Students learn basic welding, machining and fabrication processes, including using gas and arc welding equipment, and qualify for an apprenticeship or internship. Other colleges as well as vocational schools have two-year associate’s degree programs that prepare you to take the welding certification exam and seek full-time employment.

    How much is welding training?

    The cost of welding training depends on where you take your classes and how quickly you want to complete the program. In general, junior college welding classes are the least expensive, but may take longer; trade schools offer intensive classes that lead to certification more quickly, but are more expensive. For example, Cerritos College, a junior college in Los Angeles that offers a welding training course, charges an average of $46 per unit; most of their welding certificate programs require 19 units of coursework, so cost about $875 each to complete. Pro-Weld, an on-site welding school in Idaho, offers three different welding courses. The 36-week welder fabrication and the 24-week gas tungsten arc welding courses each cost an average of $3,300, while pipe welding costs an average of $2,500 for a 24-week session or an average of $4,500 for a 52-week session. The 20-week comprehensive program at the Lincoln Electric Company in Ohio costs an average of $9,500. Many programs require students to purchase approximately $120-$200 worth of personal welding equipment in addition to textbooks or other class material fees.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
