A handyman can help you fix something in your home or business, such as a hotel, a restaurant, or another establishment. You need a local handyman available for on-site jobs. This is why we currently offer handyman services only in Hope, BC, where we are located.
A handyman in Hope, BC can help you dispose of something. We can come with a truck and quickly remove your trash away to the nearest transfer station. We have a long bed (8 ft) pickup truck available for such garbage cleanup jobs. The truck is shown on the picture below.
The same truck with one driver can be used to move large items such as furniture, if you are willing to help with loading and unloading.
Splitting firewood in Hope, BC is much easier when you have proper tools. Consider hiring a handyman with a log splitter shown on the picture below, or you can rent one. We can even move your firewood from one place to another using the pickup truck shown above.
We can trim large branches off your trees to make them neat and tidy. We use a couple of gas powered chainsaws for triming trees. A large one is shown below. This one can be especially useful after storms to cut large pieces of fallen trees and branches into easily removable parts, which can then be disposed of with out pickup truck above or turned into useful firewood.
For smaller jobs we can use a much lighter arborist chainsaw.
Sometimes you need to weld a few things together, such as fixing a fireplace door, making some hooks for your shed, or do parts for your hobby project. A handyman with a MIG welder (shown below) can help. This welder is good for small projects such as home repair and works on residential 120 Volt power.
If you are installing hardwood floors, you may have to use pneumatic tools such as a flooring nailer. You run them with an air compressor such as shown below. You can rent this air compressor and a flooring nailer from us, or we can help you with your entire project.
Occasionally, there arises a need to lift heavy things up. Perhaps, a boulder, or a heavy skylight, or large pieces of plywood, etc. A small removable crane like on the photo below can be used for such heavy lifting. This crane can be assembled from parts by one strong man, but it is better to use 2 people for crane assembly, especially when mounting an electric winch on top of it.
When disassembled, crane parts can be moved by one person in a pickup truck. Below is a picture of all crane parts in handyman's garage in Hope, BC. The heaviest and most awkward part is the winch, weighting about 40 kg.
Below is an example of this removable crane capability, when pushed to its limits. We managed to lift and place a mini excavator on top of a rock formation. Its electric winch runs on residential 120V power, or you can use a 2 KW portable generator as shown on these photos.
Below are some examples of successfully completed handyman projects.
