Mr. Handyman / Total bill for forty-five real work minutes, $490

I used Mr. Handyman in Murphy, Texas. They came out saw that I needed a piece of wood, went to the store for an hour and that cost me $90 for a store visit 5 minutes away. They did forty five minutes of work and then waited three hours for the paint to dry before finishing. Those three hours of waiting cost me an additional $270. What a joke. What a crooked company. Total bill for forty-five real work minutes, $490. Repair was lousy.

    this guys are a total ripoff at $15 per hour much less $90! Any carpenter worth his salt doing carries basic lumber on his truck and would never charge customer for time spent watching paint dry. You paint something and drop by the next day to finish the job. Try hiring local contractors not franchise hacks and you'll pay much less and get better work. Hanging 3 hours while paint drys get real.

    charging old people and people who don't know better $100 an hour for work that real contractors do for $45 ain't nothing but a rip off. Word gets out and Mr Handyman is Mr Ripoff! I'll watch paint dry for $20 LOL

    well mr stealthy pilot it really doesn't matter that much anyways since most of your stupid franchise pretend contractors are losing their red shirts and closing up their shops. Good riddance to you yahoos.

    Contrary to what they advertise, Mr. Handytard franchisee buyers are hurting. They send incompetents, that can't make it, out on their own, because they lack the skills, and are lazy. Just like a DMV worker, has the balls to sit on their ### and do nothing. I blame the homeowners too; they are lazy, in that they won't do a little leg work, and ask around for someone that can do their job.

    Quite frankly, if you call a Mr. Handyman type to attempt your work, you deserve to get the shaft; quality & price wise. Put some effort in HOMEOWNERS! Do a little work, and you will definitely find an excellent contractor, at an excellent price. One good thing Mr. handytard is good at, is getting the HIGHEST PRICE QUOTE for your job. Once they tell you how much it will cost, then you know you can easily find an excellent contractor at half the price!
