Frequently Asked Questions

What Is the Definition of a Handyman?

A Handyman can be defined as a person who is skilled at household repair work, maintenance and minor renovations. 



 

What Should Be Considered When Hiring a Handyman in Dublin?

Always do your research. Find out details such as the average price rates in your area, reviews and testimonials from previous customers, portfolios of recent work projects,  their experience in the specific work required, their relevant license numbers, and the average timeline for the type of work you require.

Ensure there is no miscommunication regarding the project’s timeline. Delays in the task will usually result in higher costs. The work required should be outlined, including materials needed, before any agreements are signed and deposits paid.

Find out whether the project requires a permit. Your local council will be able to advise you accordingly. Some handymen will offer to obtain the necessary permits for you, but this will be at an extra cost.

The payment procedure should be established before the work begins. Do not pay for the entire project before it is completed. You may be required to pay a deposit, although it should raise alarm bells if you are asked to pay for all the costs before completion. 

Always ensure that your handyman has the necessary insurance in case of any unforeseen disasters during the project’s completion. Without insurance cover, you may find yourself with a much larger bill than you anticipated. 

Follow up on references the handyman has given you to obtain a more detailed picture of what to expect. 

The handyman with the cheapest rates is not necessarily the best option. You may be saving a few euros now, but you may have to cough up even more than you thought in the long run if the project is completed poorly.

How Do I Determine Which Handyman Business Is the Best Choice?

It is always a good idea to read a professional handyman business’s testimonials and business reviews before making your choice. A well-established business with several years under its belt might be another clue of overall quality. The proposed length to complete the project and the rate per hour are also determining factors. Ensure that your chosen professional handyman is insured in order to avoid additional unforeseen costs.

At YourPro all of our Handymen go through a strict vetting process to ensure they are qualified, professional and experienced enough to handle any project.

What Are the Advantages of Hiring a Handyman?

Hiring a handyman will usually save you time in the long run. They are experts who will come prepared with the correct tools, materials, and skills to complete the job efficiently. 

Attempting a DIY task without the necessary knowledge and skills usually guarantees a stressful experience for all family members. By choosing a handyman to complete a project, you are choosing to be stress-free. 

Even though you are spending money when hiring a professional handyman, there is a real possibility that you will end up spending even more if you attempt the DIY project yourself. Many handyman businesses have special rates with wholesalers. This can help to keep costs within your budget.

Handyman businesses can often work on more than one task at a time, shortening the length of the overall project. This is especially beneficial if you are being charged an hourly rate. 

When using one of our Handymen, you receive the YourPro Guarantee, which means that if you are not 100% satisfied with the job, or if the Handymen didn’t complete the job, you can claim back. Make sure to check the job contract to see what the requirements are for claiming back.

The business hours of Handymen tend to vary. Most of the handyman businesses are either open Monday to Saturday, or they offer 24-hour services. Handyman services will probably prove to be more costly on a Sunday or out of regular working hours.
