Help Bookings

What services are offered and what is included?

Handyman Services

We admit that "handyman" is a pretty generic word, but that's because the professionals on the platform can accommodate a wide range of requests, small projects and assemblies that might look more like a 3d puzzle kit, than the new couch you need help installing. These professionals can get it done and they can get it done the right way. 

There are limitations, of course. Since professionals on the Handy platform are all independent service providers, we can't guarantee that they're licensed in their field, and thus, they can't perform services that require a license. Rules are rules, y'know?
