Although not entirely difficult, you can find yourself a reliable handyman in a short amount of time.

There’s no shame in not knowing what to do
You’re hiring a handyman in the first place. There’s no need to feel ashamed about not knowing how to do repairs. You also don’t need to do your research before the handyman arrives. No YouTube DIY tips needed. Your handyman will explain everything to you from the simplest drywall repairs to major home repair.
You should do some cleaning first
You might think that your handyman will do repairs, so he will do clean up before and after, right? – No. You will be paying extra if your handyman will do the cleaning. After all, he is just there to repair what needs to be fixed. He’s now your maid. If you do, however, have them clean the area before the repairs, expect longer repair times and extra fees.

Leave him out of your spousal disputes
If you and your wife disagree on something, your handyman doesn’t need to hear any of it. Remember, he’s only there to fix that hole in your drywall and not in your marriage.

Keep your pets away from the work area
Handymen are there to fix broken things and not to constantly check in on your pets. If you’ve got dogs, make sure they are kept away from the work area. Even if your dogs are friendly, they wouldn’t be much of any help doing the repairs.
Extra work means extra fees
Don’t expect add-ons to be free. If they put in the extra work for it, you need to pay for it. It’s simple logic. Any work that’s accomplished needs to be compensated. Don’t be a cheapskate. Know that the person is working an honest job for his pay. Depriving him of that isn’t good practice.
