Firstly I would question whether you need a handyman or a multi-skilled builder. A handyman is a person carrying out tasks for payment that would be considered by most to be DIY type jobs, but where the customer doesn’t have the time to do it - repairing broken fences, gates etc, replacing a couple of broken paving slabs, changing a door lock, putting up shelving, assembling flat pack furniture, clearing gutters etc etc. For this kind of service expect to pay around £20 per hour plus the cost of materials. However if you need the creation of a patio area, the total replacement of a fence and posts, replacing soffits and fascias, alterations to internal spaces etc. You are actually looking for a tradesman. Expect to pay around £30 per hour or £200 per day plus the cost of any materials. Rubbish disposal is not cheap for professional trades and expect to pay between £100 and £200 for a skip depending on the size and the type of rubbish you intend to fill it with. I hope this helps, I’m always happy to provide free quotations to potential customers in the Staffordshire area.

Prior free quotation is reccomended for most jobs. Some jobs come will have a fixed rate. As an hourly rate I charge £23.50 per hour with an hour minimum. Any materials used are added to the Invoice with prior knowledge from the client so they know what the costs are upfront. Rubbish Disposal is also charged at the rates of the local trade waste centre.

My rate for general handyman and basic property maintenance is £35 for the first hour, £10 per half hour up to £175 for an 8 hour day. Larger jobs would require a 60% upfront deposit followed by 20% mid way and 20% on completion of job or full material cost upfront whichever is the greater.

I normally charge £35 per hour for small jobs requiring less than a day to complete, or I can offer either a daily rate or price for the whole job, plus materials. Price depends on what is required and area covered. I will normally work Week days, but can work weekends to accommodate customers needs, however this will be at a higher price.

We usually charge between £20ph and £25ph per man, however I am happier give a free estimate for the job, and often find the customers prefer this method. It gives both parties a clearer picture of costs and cannot be misinterpreted as with an hourly rate or day rate. All materials are itemised on estimates and charged on top of the labour rate.

I normally charge £20 per hour or £100 per day based on a six hour working day. (Only because I have children to look after).Quotes can be given if that is preferable and obviously any materials need will be changed on top.Certain jobs that I do have a flat fee laminate flooring starts a £10 a square meter and internal doors start at £50 per door.

Well i guess that all depends on what the job is. I normally charge a day or job rate if the job is big enough. Otherwise i would charge accordingly but don't normally like to charge by the hour. So i would say easier for the customer to have a few jobs needing doing then a date rate would be charged.

We charge £30 for the first hour (not including materials) and then £15 an hour after that. This is based on completing a few jobs at the same property. If, however, you were wanting anything that would take a day or more we would charge a day rate price which would be cheaper than charging per hour for the same job.

What I cost is per job not per hour as it is set for the job because each job is best and different price so I do it best for the people who are on benefits and Elderly people and I will give them the best price on the job and this is with out my company being out of pocket and get that job done and sorted so I can get on to the next one

We would charge £38+vat for a minimum of two hours for providing a handy man service. This would not include materials required for the requested project and would only cover 1 man labour for the allotted time. If the works were deemed to be over two hour minimum, we would provide a quotation before proceeding.
