If you’re looking to check some work off your to-do list, hiring a handyperson is perfect for you. A handyperson is there to help you with any small (sometimes larger) projects that you need to complete. They are a great, faster alternative to hiring multiple contractors or trades to complete small jobs around the house. A handyperson is also great in the event of an emergency repair. Learn more about how to hire a handyman on HomeStars below.
Pro Tip: Before you submit a request for a handyman on HomeStars.com, be sure to have a compiled list of the work that you are looking to get done, whether it’s one job or multiple. It doesn’t have to be super detailed, just enough for the pro to understand the scope of the work.
In this search bar, you will need to enter what service you are looking for, as well as your postal code. Entering the specific service, along with your postal code will allow HomeStars to connect you to a pro who performs the specified service in your area. In this case, you can type ‘Handyman’ into the search bar, or select ‘Handyman’ from the drop down menu available. Simply enter your postal code and select the ‘Get Quotes’ button.
Next, you will need to tell us some more information about your project. This is where your list may come in handy! You will need to select a task that best describes the work you need done on your home. You can enter a keyword into the search bar, or select a task from the drop down menu available. If the task you are looking to complete is not on the list, don’t worry- select the closest, most relatable task. You will have a chance to explain the work in more detail soon. To continue, press ‘Next’.
Then, you will have to let us know what type of home you live in. Select your answer and press ‘Next’.
Next, you will need to select when you would like to start this project. There are multiple options, ranging from immediately for an emergency to within a month.
To make sure that the pros you get connected with know everything about your project, you have the option to provide further details. While this step is optional, it’s highly encouraged. Here you can enter details such as the scope of your project, your budget, materials you would like to use, and any other information or details you would like to share.
For the final step, you will need to enter your contact details. This includes your name, your email, and a phone number (if you wish to be called). While you’re here, be sure to subscribe to our newsletter to stay up-to-date with all things home improvement.
Once submitted, you will be connected with up to 5 pros in the area. If a pro is interested in your project, they will connect with you via email or phone if you give that option within 24 hours. When connecting with a pro, be sure to look out for these red flags when hiring and read more tips for hiring a handyman here.
