- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
Working as a handyman there are such a wide variety of jobs, I generally work on a bid basis. On larger jobs I offer free quotes up to a 20 mile radius from Salt Lake City. When I do come to do the work, if it's a small job there is a $100 dollar minimum. I work jobs hourly when it's unsure how long the job will take. I have to make sure the job is profitable for me and if it's less than an hour I don't make enough. I generally recommend my customer's come up with a list of things to do, then it works it better for both of us. General handyman work is $65 dollars an hour. If I am not very specific about the things I don't do, thumbtack will charge me. I want to let you know the work I'm not able to do upfront; I am not able to do any work on ceilings higher than 8 feet. I don't do any commercial or office properties. I do not do electrical work in finishing basements. I don't work on any low voltage lighting. I don't remove or replace any old wiring. I don't do any hot tubs. I don't do landscape or outdoor lighting. I don't do undercounter lighting. I don't do any cat 5 or Internet. I don't work with lathe and plaster. I don't do houses older than 1960. I don't do coax. I don't install outlets for TV's on top of brick. I don't work with bathroom exhaust fans. I don't deal with any lack of power situations, ie. outlets not working. I do not do any EV charging outlets. I don't do Christmas or house lights. I don't have a way of welding anything unless it is brought to my shop, I'm not able to travel and weld in the field, and I don't do railings or gates. I just want to be up front with things I'm not able to do. Thank you, -Daniel
