Handyperson recommendations, Northside?

By poisonivy - 31 July 2013 10

Grateful for any recommendations of a handyman-slash-person to perform some small tasks around the home: basic plumbing, tiling, painting etc.

A callout for just one of these (small) jobs is obviously not economical, but if they are handy enough a number of jobs (and some repeat business) might make it worthwhile for someone with the skills and inclination.

A few calls have made it apparent that small jobs aren’t big business for Canberra’s tradies so I’m calling on the collective wisdom of RiotACT for ideas.

Northside recommendations suggested for their convenience only – personally I don’t mind which Centenary Martini they prefer.

What’s Your opinion?

I recommend Dan’s Handyman Maintenance and Repairs in Belconnen. Dan installed my kitchen, and hung some doors for me. I have used him a few times and am always happy with the result. He does a range of home and garden maintenance jobs and offers free quotes. His number is 0481106552 or email

Would highly recommend Super Handyman Services for anyone who needs handyman work done in Canberra. They did an excellent job preparing our house in Spence for sale. They updated the bathroom showers, toilets and vanities, re-grouted tiles, pulled carpets, arranged for bamboo flooring to be installed throughout, replaced doorknobs and cabinet knobs, put in a new mailbox, installed our new oven, cooktop and range (including building a custom frame for the oven), and replaced our light fittings. Great choice for anyone who has a range of things that need to be done around the house and wants one team that can do it all. We are extremely pleased with their work!

I used Rob 0413285056 for 2 small jobs, 1 electrical and 1 plumbing. Highly recommended.

Exactly. You’d think there would be a huge opportunity here for someone enterprising to corral the skills of this demographic. Simple things like changing a washer or tiling don’t need a specialist, just someone with the right tools.
