The average job for Handyman Connection is $500, says marketing vice president Jim Rocchetta, who says that one visit might include replacing a garbage disposal, installing a ceiling fan, changing a faucet, recaulking a tub, and fixing a sticky door.
Best of all: Instead of waiting months for a contractor's schedule to free up, Handyman Connection will typically send someone in two or three days. "And we don't do those 'windowed' appointments between 8 and 12, where you're under house arrest," says Rocchetta. "Man, that irks me. If we tell you we're going to be there at 9, we're there at 9."
