What is your hourly rate? Every job is individually inspected so you can be given a
fixed price including materials, labour and any associated fees (eg dump
costs etc). Quotes are free, in writing and fixed.
I found someone through social media who
quotes a fixed low hourly rate for any job. Wouldn't that be OK for simple
jobs like weeding etc? Beware of back-yarders or children of friends and
neighbours who simply quote a flat hourly rate. Firstly, if they don't
have the right equipment or experience, the job can take much longer,
making the cheap hourly rate more expensive by job finish. Also, it is
VITALLY IMPORTANT that anyone who works on your property has adequate
Liability Insurance. Even the simplest of jobs can result in very costly
You should also be aware that if you employ a minor (under 18) YOU are
liable for their safety. So if they injure themselves whilst working on
your property you could be paying restitution for many years to come.
Don't risk it!

re-seating and spindle clean for much less than a plumber's average

and houses) it is recommended you use a full-time trade qualified
How do I know if I need a licenced
tradesperson or a handyman? If in doubt - ask Grant! He will never undertake a job that
legally requires a licenced tradesperson, but he is always happy to advise
what work may be required, so you don't fall victim to over-servicing or
unscrupulous pricing practices.
