$1,000 a day as a general handyman


Recommended Posts

Those who have maintained their own homes will probably go WTF!! -  these people are paying $125 minimum.

Thing to remember is he may not have full days every day, especially when in a service industry and just starting out.

Included some titles of his other vids

Well sure, looks like a lot but then you have to consider all the school work and certifications he had to go through to be able to do that.

Yep -  definitely not cheap along with taxes / insurance..

Lived in apartments until 1st house. Luckily had neighbors who were willing to teach me.  DO NOT USE borrowed acetylene torch to solder copper pipes and MAP gas works better.:biggrin_01:.

Last house HOA (only 50 houses) we put together a list of who could do what and what specialized equipment they might have (wet tile cutter, floor nailing gun, portable air compressor, auger post hole digger, etc.) also list of what should be standard "I have that" tools.

We attracted a fair number who'd never done their own work before. If you wanted us to do it for you was $10 / hr per man, avoided moochers. To help / teach was food / drinks while working and if big job (wooden deck was most common) beer party when done.

Could walk? home.:1frog:

For the  physically unable. we'd usually do it for free , just cost of materials.

Guess I left out the :sarcasm:.  How much overhead is there for going into a house and pushing reset on the GFI?

On the FB groups around where I am now in the US. Mechanics and general carpenters advertise for $20-25 hr. I'm sure many would love to get $1200 a day.

Difference maybe licensed. insured, bonded.

In another vid he talks about starting out and why he charges so much. It seems the more he charges gets fewer deadbeats.

Ahhh.. but the key thing is knowing what button to push. That's why he makes the big bucks.
