Hiring a Handyman in Reading - Some Tips

1. Exactly what is your project? Firstly, compile a list of all the jobs that need doing around your home. Bear in mind that an odd job man is best used for those smaller jobs like repairing a fence, hanging pictures, putting up shelves or assembling flat pack furniture. If you have more complex jobs such as electrical work, plumbing or gas fitting, you would be better to hire a skilled Reading tradesman.

2. Do not employ the first odd job man you find. Speak to a minimum of three Reading odd job men and where possible check any online reviews that are available. Ask about their specific fields of expertise and how many years experience they have as an odd job man in Reading. Make certain you study any references that they have from people they have previously done jobs for. Establish that any potential odd job man has the confidence, skills and experience to do the job.

3. See some photos. The third step is to check out a portfolio of their work, or at least look at some photos. Seeing a few photographs will give you a clearer idea of what they are about and what work they do. If they have a website or Facebook page, check it out for pictures and customer comments.

4. Be wary of scams. Stay shy of any odd job man who calls at your home in Reading uninvited or contacts you by phone out of the blue. Also steer clear of any odd job man/woman who will not give a firm price for the project or demands upfront payment. Asking for payment upfront is a definate no-no and any odd job man in Reading asking for this should not be trusted.

5. Get them to put it in writing. It is important to get itemized costs, full details of the work and a schedule for payment all down in a written agreement. Starting and finishing times for the project should be included in the agreement and should be clear and unambiguous. It is essential to get everything in writing that has been agreed with your odd job man.

6. Get a guarantee. Certain odd job men/women will offer a 12 month guarantee for their work. Always try to get a guarantee for the work that is being done, and insist that the guarantee is in writing.

7. Carry out an inspection. When the time comes to pay your odd job man/woman, check the work over thoroughly. Satisfy yourself that everything has been done correctly and that you are happy with the result. Making sure you are happy with their work, will be the goal of every odd job man, so going through the finished project will be just as important to them.
