Pricing Guide, including Terms & Conditions

We provide three pricing options:

1.  Do and Charge – ‘Pay on the Day’ (EFT, Cash or Credit Card if available, with receipt emailed)
This option is most commonly used by private householders, and is the best value for money.

  • $70.00 for the first hour, then $50.00 per additional hour or $25.00 per half hour.
  • Full Day: $375.00
  • Materials: charged at cost price, or you are welcome to provide

2. Do and Charge – ‘Pay Later’ (Payable within 15 days of invoice date)
This option is used mostly by businesses which often have complex administration and payment procedures.

  • $84.00 for the first hour, then $60.00 per additional hour.
  • Full Day: $450.00
  • Materials: charged at cost price, or you are welcome to provide

3. ‘Fixed Price’ Quote (Payable within 15 days of invoice date)
If you find a better price than ours from a reputable, professional business, we will always match or beat it.                   Note:  Quotes are: a)  normally only provided for jobs expecting to cost more than $500.00; and  b) always provided in writing.

Before the work begins we need to know which payment option you have chosen.
Ie. if you accept the Fixed Price Quote, this will be the amount payable. (regardless that it could differ from what the Do and Charge rate might have been)

For ‘Do and Charge’ options:  We will always clarify the scope of work before the job begins; and in some cases may be able to provide a rough estimate of how many hours could be required.

Same Price – Seven Days a Week.   It makes no difference to us what day of the week it is.

How to Pay:   EFT, Cash or Credit Card (if available)

Invoices and Receipts  We provide one invoice or receipt per single engagement. If you need an invoice split or shared with another person you must tell us in advance before the work begins. If you engage us to complete the work then you are the person responsible to pay us.

Job Cancellation by client.  We require a minimum of 48 hours notice of cancellation or postponement.  This is most important for full day bookings.  A 20% cancellation fee may be charged if you provide less than 48 hours notice, even if you rebook at another time.   This fee provides a small contribution towards our loss of income.

Our On-Site Procedure, Time Requirements and Fees

When the handyman arrives at the work site ready to start we normally ask you to sign him or her on. Then when the job is completed (or end of each working day), we may ask you to sign him or her off.  The time you pay for includes the amount of time between sign on and sign off, less meal break.  Charges include all reasonable time required to successfully complete your job, including but not limited to:

      • Unload and reload materials and equipment/tools on board our vehicle or trailer.
      • Collect materials.  Alternatively you may like to purchase the material yourself, or have them delivered to site beforehand. We can help you prepare the ‘shopping list’.
      • Dispose or recycle, rubbish or waste materials (unless appropriate alternative arrangements are in place).
      • Discuss and explore different options with you as the job progresses, or to research and provide advise on specific types of materials.

All Reasonable Care Taken

We provide all services with care, skill and technical knowledge appropriate to a handyman service. We take all reasonable steps to avoid loss or damage when completing your handyman task.

There are however certain situations where minor damage is hard to avoid and may be outside the control of a handyman.  For example:
When lifting, moving or fitting a large, heavy item into a confined or awkward place, eg. mounting a clothes dryer or heavy mirror – small wall marks may be unavoidable.   In this example situation we would correct any small scratches/dints at no charge to you, but ask that you provide the correct colour touch up paint.
