I have a handyman whom I call every time I cannot fix anything at home myself. (That makes a lot of times...)
He comes within half an hour, on a Saturday night when he's at a huge wedding party (not his own!), brings workers from a city 20 minutes from here at nine o'clock p m and they all together fix the broken lock on my front door, the broken tap that can't be closed but with the main tap outside the house, the kitchen sink that suddenly sank below the counter - and what not!
The secret: immediate payment in cash
He drives and buys the necessary parts as well, and I pay for those parts too, of course, but they are usually cheaper than the cost of the work.
For me, this is a cheap investment. I save myself a broken back and lots of painkillers from the pharmacy... I figure bringing the handyman is cheaper!
