Reviews of Helping Hands Handyman

  • Small job but not straightforward. John thought about it, researched options and did a fantastic job.Thank You. Will get in touch with John for other jobs and projects.
  • John arrived at the arranged time and was able to do all the small repair jobs on the spot. He was extremely professional and extremely tidy as well! I will definitely use his services again if the need arises.
  • John installed a skylight for me. He arrived on time; made sure everything was covered with drop sheets, completed the job with a minimum of fuss (and no radio) and cleared up after the job, leaving my house looking great. I would definitely recommend him if you are thinking of having some work done.
  • John has done a fantastic job repairing my picket fence. The job was co-ordinated with Gwyn the painter and I couldn't be happier. The written quotation was very detailed and the price reasonable. Both John and Gwyn are decent people and I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone. I will be definitely be using Helping Hands in the future. After being disappointed with tradesmen who never turned up or who were trying to rip us off, it has been reassuring to find someone such as John and Helping Hands.
  • John came around to do the jobs that my previous handyman couldn't do. He expertly fixed my sash cords, installed a stubborn microwave trim kit and some other small jobs that he came up with great solutions for that we couldn't figure out ourselves. He was professional and friendly. I will definitely use him again and would recommend him for any jobs you need around the house.
  • We just bought a place and hired John to do a variety of jobs around the house. John is quite professional, friendly and got the job done within a reasonable timeframe. Where he was unable to do the work e.g. electricity-related, he was also able to contract out that work. His contractor also did an excellent job. Overall, we were pleased with his work and will use him again.
  • John hasbeen to our house several times to do a wide range of jobs. He is reliable, organised, on time, friendly and incredibly quick to do things that would have taken others double the time. He is now our official handyman and I would not hesitate to call him back for future jobs.
  • John was the best. He did a great job working through my extensive list of putting up shelves, hooks and curtain rods that came in all shapes and sizes. Not only was he stellar at his workmanship but it was also a pleasure to have such a lovely person doing such a great job. John was polite and reliable. I highly recommend John and will definitely use his services again.
  • Thank you for your competent and friendly service, I would highly recommend the service to other neighbours or friends.
  • John built a beautiful shrine / altar for us. I appreciated his care and attention to detail, and his efficiency. He was always on time and gave me regular updates on the work. He also offered great suggestions for other jobs we want done. I would definitely ask him back and have already recommended him to friends. Thanks John!
  • We found John through True Local and he definitely met and exceeded all our expectations. He is friendly, polite, punctual, true to his quote and gets the job done with minimal fuss - what more could you want in a skilled tradesman? We could not have been happier with the work John did (which was varied and at times fiddly). He even entertained my nosy 3 year old (she wanted him to come back the next week!). So a big thumbs up from myself (and my daughter). Highly, highly recommend him.
  • John was on time, reliable, professional and reasonably priced. Would highly recommend Helping Hands Handyman. I will definitely use him again.
  • I needed a lot of small repairs and improvements around my apartment. John did all that thoroughly and efficiently and even came up with and implemented a great storage solution. He has a "no job too small" attitude and is punctual, flexible, skilled and thorough. I will use him again.
  • John is fantastic. I engaged him to do a small fixit job on my terrace in the Inner West after seeing his great reviews on truelocal and am happy to report that he lives up to the reputation. Punctual, courteous, flexible, affordable. What more could you want in a handyman? Highly recommend.
  • I was clear after one meeting with John that I would like him to take over all general maintenance required in the house. He showed care and thoroughness as if the house were his own property. He had smart solutions and worked to remove problems. Talking with him was a real pleasure.
  • I contacted John to look a numerous jobs around my terrace in Erskineville, some of which required some problem solving - which he took on and found a great solution that has worked brilliantly.
    He was not only prompt, efficient & good value, he also finished all the jobs well and with a smile.
    I would not hesitate to recommend him or use his services again in the future.
  • We contacted John to complete some general maintenance on our house prior to letting it.
    He proved capable in all the tasks we asked him to complete.
    He revealed a strong work ethic and displayed an intelligent approach to problem solving.
    He came with a broad skill base and handled a variety of fields of general maintenance.
    His approach to the jobs was both confident and willing and I have no hesitation in recommending him.
    Yours sincerely, Jenny (Glebe)

  • John is reliable, creative and a terrific tradesman for all jobs - large and small. We live in an old semi in Leichhardt and always in need of a good tradesman. We were recently looking for someone to do some small jobs around the house and came across his website - which was very impressive! He is a true local - in fact he lives around the corner.

    A great find!
  • John is efficient and reliable. John managed all aspects of my renovation with urgency and great attention to detail. I would recommend John to family and friends.
  • Always delighted with John's work and helpful, friendly attitude. On a recent job, we hit a snag in the form of illegal old wiring, right where I wanted a rail hung in the kitchen. I had to find an electrician for emergency repairs; he repaired the wiring, but left me with missing tiles and holes in the wall. John was a tremendous support, and came back to make good all the mess, even finally fixed the rail just where I wanted it. I would recommend him to anyone. Jen
  • My husband and I recently moved back to Australia and have been 'starting all over again'...which meant a houseful of flat packed furniture to put together, curtain rods to hang, screening to put up, more things on the way etc. After a particularly overwhelming moment, we decided to call them, and are so glad we did. Within hours our 'mess' was transformed into a 'home'. They put together a particularly complex chest of drawers when the 'preferred provider' of the company we bought it from didn't even return our call. They secured screening on our balcony so that it wouldn't blow away in the wind. They hung high curtain rods that we couldn't reach. They are clean and tidy and shows up when they say they will. Also polite and friendly. When the rest of our furniture arrives we will definitely be calling them to assist us again. I highly recommend them.
  • hes great, highly reccomend John
  • Just wonderful. I had a close deadline for getting a whole lot of little things fixed before my other half arrived back from overseas. Some of the 'little things' turned into bigger things - They dealt with it all calmly and cheerfully, was creative in their problem-solving, and met the deadline with no trouble. They're a great presence to have working in your house. I'll be employing them again, no question.
  • John installed an attic ladder. He was fast to reply, quote the job, book it in and complete it. He was considerate, courteous and honest, and I recommend him.
  • Fast, Reliable, Friendly, Professional. Was quick to respond to my initial query and arrived on time to complete the job. Was very obliging in taking on some additional work and wrapped it all up in the one visit. John is now THE handyman of choice for our home.
  • John has just reconstructed the balcony of our terrace house. Since we were away at the time, he was kind enough to make photos before and after the job and also of other work he thought needed to be done. And indeed it was needed. This is a great service and his email response is always quick and full of good (money saving) ideas. We wholeheartedly recommend his service and his quick and honest judgement.
  • John was professional, kept me in the loop with costs and little things that came up. Nothing was too much trouble, everything I requested was done. Great as I live interstate and had to rely on him to be honest and up front. Good Job!!
  • John did all the little and not so little jobs on the 'to do' list which freed up my time.
    He does good quality work and is a pleasure to deal with.
