Before hiring anyone, find out what they do and what they can’t do before agreeing together. Some general points to make sure you know before going into any agreement:
- Have them confirm if they understand how working as a handyman will affect their current situation (such as how far away from their home). By establishing this (and being able to provide references), you ensure that they have enough time off work or have a reliable form of transport available to get to and from their client’s home. It is also essential to see how long they have been working in this sort of environment and whether or not they are willing to take a leave of absence from their current job.
- If you hire a professional, make sure the work is well-researched. Ask for references, just like you would for any licensed tradesman.
- Ensure that the handyman’s insurance covers them while working away from home before you agree to hire them.
When finding local handyman services in Denver to work for you, you must understand the job and the risks you are proposing to take on. Make sure they know they are covered while working away from home. This means having them insured as a sole trader or by a registered company or franchise of the same company. You can also organize insurance for them directly from your local utility companies and government departments, such as the local council, water supply, gas, and electricity.
As a homeowner, you should be aware of the risks associated with your property because this could affect your insurance premiums. By employing a handyman, you are taking on more risk. For example, the cost of replacing windows if they are broken while they are working can be significantly higher than buying windows and fitting them at home. For this reason, it is better to have someone else fit and replace all the glass in your house before they start work on it in case it should happen while they are there (for example, with window bars removed). They then need to explain how they will secure their tools while doing work away from home.
