Some homeowners don’t want to reach out to a handyman service because they feel that they could (or should) do the job themselves.
On the flip side, many of us can realize we’re in over our heads right when a project begins or as it’s underway. Or that even if we have the needed skills, we just don’t have the time or the equipment. In some cases, you may question if a project is even right for a handyman in the first place—either because the task is too minor or too big.
Let’s clear a few misconceptions.
If you have something on your property that needs to be maintained, repaired or replaced, chances are that the skilled handymen at ABC can help, no matter what it is.
We see our job as professional helpers. You have a to-do list that’s just getting longer, and we can help you cut it down to size and cross as many items off as you need.

Our handymen do not deal with plumbing issues—but that doesn’t mean we can’t help. One of the best things about working with ABC is that we also have licensed plumbers who can install toilets, fix leaks, replace faucets and more.
Everyone who works for ABC is licensed and certified in their particular trade or trades to better help them help you in your home. Because we know how important it is for our customers to feel safe when inviting people onto their property and into their homes, we put all employees through rigorous drug screening and background checks.
It doesn’t matter what kind of service you sign up for. When you choose ABC, you can rest easy knowing that the people helping you have passed our stringent quality standards.
How soon can you start on my list of projects?
The fastest way to get your around-the-house to-do list done is to get in touch with us. Our promise is that we will strive to set you up with the earliest available appointment.
What are ABC’s handyman prices based on?
When you hire a handyman from ABC, you’re essentially buying their services for a set block of time—either a half day or full day.
In our experience, most homeowners can get several projects completed within a half day time period. That being said, the best thing to do is ask us, since it really depends what you have in mind.
When you reach out to schedule the service, you’ll tell us what you want the handyman to do. From experience, we’ll recommend how long it should take to complete the job. Moreover, knowing the specific types of tasks you need to be done enables us to match you with a craftsman whose abilities best fit your needs.
Have a bigger job? No problem. If it seems like your task will take longer than a full day, we’ll have a Specialist do a walk-through and offer an estimate before starting the project. This estimate will incorporate all associated costs, so you never have to worry about being surprised by any hidden costs.
What if the ABC craftsman can’t finish my projects in the set amount of time?
This scenario doesn’t happen often, because we have extensive experience in estimating how long it takes to complete different types of handyman tasks. However, if you find yourself in this situation, our craftsman will tell you how much more time it will take to complete the list. You then have the option of leaving the remaining tasks unfinished or paying for additional time to complete them.
Do I need to provide any kinds of tools or equipment?
We will explain what tools and equipment are required for the specific task or tasks. Our promise is that the craftsmen from ABC will come with all the basic tools and supplies needed to complete your project.
If there are other specific materials required, we recommend that you buy these ahead of time and have them ready, so your Specialist can focus their time on completing your task rather than shopping for what they need.
Why does ABC have time blocks for handyman services?
Most homeowners in the Dallas/Fort Worth area who get in touch with us have a long list of tasks they want to be completed, rather than just one. Because of this, our experienced handymen work on a flat-fee basis. This allows them to finish numerous home improvement projects for the same price rather than charging for each individual service.
ABC’s goal is to help homeowners enjoy their free time, rather than always having home maintenance tasks get in the way of relaxation and fun. These handyman time blocks help our Specialists get through a large number of home improvement tasks in a short time and provide homeowners with the peace of mind that comes from working with trusted professionals.
Is there anything I should do to get my home ready for your handyman?
If you want to make sure your ABC Specialist can get right to work, we have a few suggestions to make the best use of your time:
- Clear furniture and other objects from the area where your handyman will be working before he or she arrives.
- Make sure pets and kids stay away from the area while the handyman is working.
- Be available for any questions from your Specialist.
