Handyman FAQs

Below are a few of our most frequent questions from customers. Feel free to contact us if you have more questions:

Q: Are estimates free?

A: Estimates provided over the phone and email are free. If you require a quote in person we do have a trip charge that is usually credited to the final invoice, if the job bid is approved (only for jobs $500 and above).

Q: Do you schedule appointments during Saturdays, Sundays, and Holidays?

A: At this time we do not have availability during weekends and major holidays (Independence day, Thanksgiving, Christmas Day, and New Year's Day). We work during most bank holidays.

Q: Do you charge by the job or by the hour?

We charge by the job, NOT by the hour for most jobs. When we estimate jobs, we give price estimates or range of cost of labor for a complete project or job. The reason why we charge by the job is really a benefit to our customers, so that if a project runs for longer than expected the customer will be charged the estimated price. The jobs that get priced by the hour are furniture assembly, electrical troubleshooting and repair, and home paint touch up.

Q: Do I provide the materials necessary for my project?

A: In some cases we prefer that you purchase some of the items needed for a job. Items such as light fixtures, faucets, toilets, shelves, ceiling fans, tile, laminate flooring, and others that are to our customer's liking or preference. Other items such as drywall (and other pertinent materials related to drywall repairs), wires, cables, junction boxes, and other specific parts for repairs are better purchased by us, so that we get the correct ones. Although in some instances we can give our customers a "shopping list" to allow them to purchase all the materials and parts. We offer delivery services for items needed to complete projects (for a small fee). Also, any items we purchase will be marked up 50% to make up for taxes and delivery, and that is why we also prefer that customers purchase the higher ticket items such as doors, windows, paint (in large quantities -5 gallons or more), so that they can save money.

Q: How do I pay for any services rendered at my property?

A: We accept cash, check, credit or debit card, or direct ACH deposits.

Q: Can I pay for my bill within a month or 45 days?

A: Unfortunately payment for services rendered is due upon receipt of the final invoice. We do not accept NET15, 30, or 45, and any unpaid invoices after 30 days will receive a 10% late fee (and every 30 days after that).

Q: Is your business insured?

A: We are fully ensured with a general liability policy to protect your home in the unlikely event of an accident. Our employees are also insured with a worker's compensation policy to protect our handymen while on the jobs sites and enroute.

Q: Do I need to be at the property at the time of service?

A: It is not necessary. You may arrange for us to gain access to your property and to lock it after we leave. If you are out-of-state, we can provide pictures of the finish job that would be emailed along with the invoice. We treat your home with the utmost respect and care. The only thing we want to be sure about is that you leave arrangements for payment, if you are paying by check, or we can email you an invoice (due upon receipt) once the office receives the information from the handyman.

Q: How do I schedule an appointment with Eli The Handyman?

A: You may schedule an appointment with us by either calling us or emailing us. We usually have availability within 1 to 4 weeks, depending on the season. We have a small crew of handymen. We schedule jobs to be done Monday through Friday from 8 am to 4 pm. We do not schedule afterhours (between 5 pm and 7 am) or during the weekends.

Q: What kind of services do you offer?

A: We offer drywall repairs, painting, plumbing, electrical, and other jobs. You may see a more detailed list of the services we offer at our Home Repair Services page.
