Odd jobs around the house and office

We love odd jobs - which is exactly what a handyman is for. A handyman is someone who covers a little bit of all the trades, a multi-trade person, if you will. From fixing mirrors to repairing door handles - we can get all sorts of jobs done in one visit.

So, how long do odd jobs take to do?

The stock answer is - how long is a piece of string? It's not a cop out. Before we've seen the job, it's impossible to commit to a time frame to complete it. There are too many factors that will have an effect on time. However, we can give you a rough estimate based on our experiences. These figures are based on a single handyman. If time is a factor, two men will be quicker - obviously. Also, as you might imagine, two men working together are faster than the sum of their parts.

Of course, you can always save the extra cost of employing two handymen - on larger jobs at any rate, if you are able to lend a hand yourself. Please see the tables below, but remember - this is a guide only.

The Multi-trade difference

There are plenty of companies out there competing for your business - and you need to make sure you're armed with all the facts before you make a decision about which one to choose. Here are a few things to check before you decide - we're confident that if you're looking for great service you'll choose Multi-Trade!

  • Does the company or tradesperson you're considering offer free quotations?
  • Do they offer an open and honest pricing structure with no hidden costs?
  • Are their engineers certified to IEE 17th edition electrical standards as a minimum?
  • Remember - it is a legal requirement when working with gas or electricity.
  • Do they have a contactable office, not just a mobile in case of any queries?
  • Does anyone answer the phone in the day?
  • Are their tradespeople honest, reliable, polite and vetted?

If the answer to any of these questions is 'no' then give us a call - we can confidently answer 'yes' to all of these questions. Not sure? Check out our testimonials page to see what some of our previous customers think of our customer service!
