Handyman Rates in Singapore
The rates of a handyman usually depend on the experience they have. The experienced and licensed handyman can charge a bit more but don’t ever hire a handyman without a license because they may charge low but they do not have the full knowledge of doing the job so they may not fix your problem as an experienced handyman will do. The first-hour fee is usually more and it reduces every hour after. There are some handyman companies who provide fix rate but always ask for a quote before hiring them.
If you are calling a handyman for some emergency work then they will surely charge more than normal. You can try fixing the thing but if you don’t know the process, leave it for experts.
Planning the Budget
A handyman will certainly charge more than a normal electrician or plumber as they have expertise in a lot of work. So, if you have a single problem, don’t go for a handyman, rather go for an electrician or plumber or the expert who will help you out of the problem. If you have multiple problems then certainly handyman is the best and cheaper option.
