How do I book a handyman?
Simply give us a call, answer a few quick questions and we will book your appointment -

How do I prepare for my handyman? What if I don’t have any tools?
Just relax and let us do the work. If you like you can make a list of all of the projects that you would like done, clear the area of any tough to get to spots, and shop for any custom materials that you think you might like to pick out. Our handymen will come with all of the tools, equipment and some standard materials to do many jobs. ^

What if the job requires materials that your handyman doesn’t have with him?
If needed we will go on a shopping trip to get the necessary materials (approved by you). The cost for the shopping trip will be the cost of the materials + 1/2 hour travel time for the shopping trip. ^

Can I sign up for a special priced Handyman Maintenance Package?
Yes. You can have the piece of mind that your handyman can take care of all of your “To Do” list and keep your home well maintained, while receiving discount pricing. You can sign up for monthly, quarterly or every 6 month maintenance plans by calling our office - 718-534-0505^

What if I think of something last minute can I add it on?
Depending on the technician’s schedule he may be able to add on additional time to your visit. If extra time is unavailable, we can assist you in scheduling a follow-up visit. ^

When and how can I change/cancel my handyman service appointment?
To make changes to your handyman service appointments please allow 48 hours notice. Unfortunately changes with less than 48 hours notice are subject to a cancellation fee of $50.00. ^

When making my booking I was asked about Special Instructions, what do they mean?
If you have any preferences about the work, special instructions about care, materials that you already have ready for the job, or other details that you think that we need to know then please let us make a note on your agreement about special instructions. ^
