Things to Know When Looking for a Handyman

It is no big surprise that your house will eventually need a few repairs. No matter if you are living in a turn of the century historic building or a condo that was built last year, you will need a handyman eventually. Those living in Suffolk County can hire the experts at Service Medix. We can handle all of your maintenance needs.

Here is what we think you should know when you are looking for a handyman:

You Need to Research

There are a lot of things to think about when you begin your search for a handyman (or any service technician for that matter.) Thorough research can save you a lot of wasted time and dollars later. Things you should investigate include:

  • The average rate for handymen in your area.
  • The available online reviews or testimonials.
  • Any galleries or portfolios of completed work available on their websites.
  • The license numbers and the insurance information.
  • An average timeline for the work you need done to compare with the quote you are given by your potential hire.
  • A good idea of their experience in handling your type of project.

Narrow Then Interview

After doing your proper research, you should be able to narrow down your choices for a handyman in Suffolk County. Once you have your (hopefully) short list of prospects, you can move onto the interview process. When speaking with your potential handyman, don’t forget to ask questions like:

  • How many years have you been in the handyman business?
  • Do you have experience with my kind of project? Explain.
  • Do you have any pictures of your completed work?
  • How will you and I communicate if you take the job?
  • How much will this type of project cost and how long do you anticipate it taking to complete?
  • Do you have a breakdown of your prices that I can look at?
  • Do you have any references?
  • Are you insured and licensed?

Verify Those References

After you get through the interview process, you should go about verifying the answers that you were given. Look up the license number, verify that the insurance information is valid. Most importantly, call the references. If the company has in social media pages, scroll through those as well and just see what people are saying about them. Make sure all the information that you were given is correct and substantiated. If you find any falsehoods, be very wary. Click here for more information.
