We hope these frequently asked questions and
answers help you! If you don't find the answer you're looking for, please
Do I purchase the materials or do you?

provided by you, or you may opt to have us purchase them for you.
We always strive to find the
best deal for the dollar without compromising quality. Keep in
mind, you will pay for time (hourly rate) we spend acquiring your
Materials won't fit in my car. Can I put on 'will
call' and have you pick them up for me?
Simply pick out your materials, pay for the merchandise, and either
provide us with the receipt for pickup, or advise the store to allow
pickup by South Bay Handyman. We will deliver the
materials to you, and do the installation work to complete your project.
You will pay for time (hourly rate) we spend picking up the
Do you work by the hour, or by the project?
Small repair work, requiring 1-8 hours is
usually done 'by the hour'.
Larger projects, with many steps (i.e.
dry time for primer, drywall, etc) are more cost effective if bid as
a 'project'. Our 'labor' bid will not change unless
requirements change during the project. The 'material' estimate
may be higher/lower, depending upon the actual cost. Keep in mind,
you will pay our hourly rate for handyman's time spent procuring
materials for your job.
Do you do commercial work - i.e. Retail Stores
We work with several retail maintenance
management companies who dispatch us for minor repair work, graffiti
abatement, etc. Their clients include department stores and
specialty shops located in the South Bay area.
If I provide a list, and show you what I need -
do I have to be home while you do the work?
I live in another state, but own property in
South Bay - can you work with my tenant to resolve some repair issues?
Quite a few of our rental property owners
live in another state. Upon request, we arrange with tenant (if
applicable) to do approved repairs/upgrades. We invoice the
owner, who pays us with a check by mail or credit card via link - see PAY
Can you do some repairs to my condo, and bill
the HOA for the work?
Why do so many other handymen NOT show up or
fail to return my calls?
Handyman services sometimes consists of an
unemployed guy with a truck and some tools, trying to get by.
Many aren't running an actual business, likely require cash payment
only, and do not take the job seriously. We hear stories all
of the time about 'no shows' and 'lack of responsiveness' from these
types of handymen.
