How do I hire the best handyman in Boston?

Thumbtack Editors

You can find the best handyman in Boston by searching online. Going online makes it easy to compare handyman ratings and customer reviews. Some customers also upload photos of work done by their handyman — inspect these closely to gauge the pros’ craftsmanship. 

Before you hire anyone, check to see if they have the proper credentials or licenses. Many smaller handyman projects don’t require special licensing or expertise, but some do. For example, a task that requires plumbing or electrical work should be performed by a handyman or contractor with a license.

Your last step is to contact the potential handymen for your project, and ask for free estimates so you can compare prices and choose the best option.
