Amazon Handyman Services
« on: July 12, 2017, 08:47:27 AM »
Figured I would start a discussion thread for yesterdays 80% Handyman Deal.

I got 3 of my 8 hour day appointments confirmed this morning.
Obviously this will YMMV, but has anyone had experience with this type of service? I have a couple of small jobs and was wondering how quickly these guys work or if they like to take there time since they are being paid by the hour.

Also how does it work in terms of material. Do I need to buy everything? Or will they have some of the basics.

Heh.
So they cancelled some of the appointments that you made?

I only ordered 1 8 hour service. Anyone else order multiples that have DPs?
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Probably not. My guess is you will need a licensed electrician for that.

I am sure there are many things whic people expect a handyman to do but when Amazon Handyman comes they will say that it needs a plumber/electrician/mechanical contractor/permit/etc.
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

I would say the biggest annoyance of this service is that they dont let you pick your handyman. I had to call 3 times to change handyman's so far because I wasnt happy with the one they were sending me.
