    Handyman service

    Our handyman for some years is not responding. So I am looking for someone handy (apt description) for minor repair works as re-applying kitchen counter table silicone seal, gluing back small kitchen panels, fixing light switches, fixing integrated light points, fixing railing in the walk-in closet and finally adding variable speed regulator to a Hunter Pacific ceiling mounted fan.

    Any suggestion? Thanks.

    Drop these guys a line. Have not used them, but they are a resonably well organised corporate setup.. not just a man with a drill.

    Also, what part of town are you in?

    From what I read on their Terms of Coverage my needs are not covered by Papabo. Lots of exclusions. Also the service Plan looks somewhat like a subscription model. Thanks anyway.

    I've used Papabo recently and they do one off services. Just WA them.

    Can you please let me know how are there charges? I am looking for some small tasks in discovery bay and would probably be 4-5 hours of work for a handyman (including some electric work).

    It really depends on what you need done. WA them and send photos. They will give you a quote.

    It is a subscription model. Basically an insurance with some repair work included. And additional charges including those for "pre-existing conditions". Clearly employed someone from the health insurance biz. Surprising enough no declaration of how much and penalties for early termination.

    Like I said they do one offs. You don't have to subscribe with them.

    Why don't you join the DB whatsapp group and ask your neighbours?
