Why angie's list & home adviser are "not" free!
In early 2018, Home Adviser purchased Angie's List. Both companies charge high fees to the Handymen or Contractors to respond to your inquiry. These "fees" are then added to your final bill. It is ALWAYS cheaper to hire your service provider direct. Good reviews and referrals are always your best screening method.
What's the best way to pay your handyman?
The most common question customers have is whether to pay for services by the "hour" or by the "job". The best explanation is for you to Google "How to charge for your Handyman Services". The articles will explain It's always cheaper to hire by the hour then to request an "exact quote". The quote will always be more because the Handyman will never put himself in a position to lose money. Finding a Handyman with a reasonable hourly rate of less than $75 and you will save the most money. Lets be realistic, you need your Handyman to make a profit or he won't survive long but a one who charges exorbitant fees deserves not to.
Research your local handyman's rates!
A truly "local" Handyman will charge less than $75 per hour because they only have to support themselves and their families. Should you choose someone from a Franchise like "Handyman Matters" or "Handyman Connection", you will be charged on average, $125 per hour so the Corporate office can profit.
prepaying for materials needed on your job?
When your Handyman purchases materials for your project, he takes responsibility for them, putting him at unnecessary risks given he did not manufacture these items and thus cannot attest to their quality. If you choose that he supply the materials then he typically must charge a higher rate as insurance to cover potential losses due to defects of the materials. You create a trusting relationship when you provide funds for materials needed and you then only owe money for the Handyman's fees which you pay him upon his completion of the project to your satisfaction.
