I didn't get a single thing from this company for my prepaid 375.16 but a phone call. This is the biggest scam, and how do you expect to take people's money and they not get anything for it, the last time I checked it don't work like that. I guarantee you won't take my money that easy.

I hate giving them even 1 Star!

I ordered a play set from Wayfarer for our grandchild. 3 different handymen came out after missing numerous appointments. Every one of them said it could not be prepared giving more lies as to why. I had a friend of mine take the unassembled parts to the garbage and he kept it and put it up himself in one afternoon. No matter how much I complained there was no one I could call and get any response. These are just a bunch of unrelated lazy handymen on a list with no connection with each other or qualifications for the job. The guy who I gave it to junk is an immigrant who worked hard for half the price! Stay away!

This company was recommended by Wayfair whom we bought a gazebo from. We had to pay Wayfair in advance for the handyman services, well.
the gazebo arrived quickly, however 2 weeks later it is still sitting outside in my yard.
Handyman has scheduled and cancelled four dates, the last time they told us they made "special" arrangements to be sure they would be here to get the job done. NOT

Hired them to assemble 3 large desks which I described. They calculated 6 hours for the job. Pre-paid $278.00 Worker arrived on time. 6 hours later he only had one desk put together. My choice was to pay for additional hours or he would leave. I tried to contact handyman by email (no other way to contact them) A day later I still haven't heard back. I agreed to pay him more. 12 hours later and $200 more, he left without completely finishing the assembly, and the drawers wouldn't go in because he used the wrong screws. Spent part of today finishing his job and looking for screws that no one seems to have because I don't want to dismantle the desks looking for where he used him. Still no response from them other than 5 emails wanting me to install their app.

Hired a plumber. Called the day before to make sure I had everything he needed very sarcastic said I don't know.
Showed up next day came to my door and I showed him what needed to be done.
He then says to me you have two bathroom I said I just shows them to you. Then he says where do you want me to start. I said sir anywhere you want I just need the job done.
As it turns I had to run to a local manufactured home supply and get a sink when I came back he was seating in his car. He put the bathroom sink in half way threw came and asked me to put more time on the computer I then said how long were you seating in your car? He never fixed either shower.
I said when your done with the sink your done. I'm not putting any more time on.
Then the next day I noticed a leak under the sink he installed!!!!!
Then two of my rings that were on my nightstand are gone conCoincidence????? I tried calling this company nobody calls you back they gave me $35.00 Credit! You have to be kidding me. Had real plumber here fixed the showers the leak under sink with no problem . Don't ever use this company!
Awlful Experience! Never never again!

I ordered the house cleaning and paid in advance through a credit card for three hours of work. The first time the cleaner arrived one hour late, she finished working as if she worked three hours, although she worked only two hours! I thought, but okay, next time it will be better! The most interesting was the next time! The next time my credit card was charged in advance, but no one came. When I called the company, I was offered to reschedule and I had to do it because money had already been withdrawn from my credit card, but no one came next week either! In short, I decided to refuse their services and hope that they will no longer withdraw money from my credit card. I absolutely do not recommend this company! Stay away from this company!

I regret the day I contacted this company. My appointment was canceled and rescheduled 3 times and when I decided enough was enough they refused to issue a refund. I paid a $35.00 deposit and because I was fed up with the constant rescheduling they refused to issue my refund stating "it doesn't work like that. I can't speak to the quality of the work because the installer never made it to the work site. I wouldn't trust them. Totally unprofessional.

Posted a request for someone to recaulk replacement windows purchased and installed by Home Depot (do not recommend). Received one response on handyman.com, ER Construction of RI. The only good thing I can say is they did show up, even though it was 5-6 hours late on the appointed day. The recaulking that they did started to crack within one week. I have contacted them 3 times within the last 6 weeks. The first two times they promised they would be back to take care of the problem. I have never heard back from them and it appears they do not guarantee or stand behind their work. They are more interested in moving on to the next customer they can find online. Do not recommend.

to start we get a date to begin, schedule time off. got a phone call verifying they would be there, told the gal yes I'm scheduled and waiting on them. come that Monday no show. so we call, she tells us it's the next week and makes it sound like we are idiots and had wrong day. that should have been a clue. then when the guys show (instead of that Monday morning it was around 4 pm) all they did was rip out the old shower. then they started installing the next day. then the next day put enclosure on and the caulking. now I bought good caulk (gorilla brand) because we wanted to have no problems in the future. well all they did was run bead no smoothing out even like the product says to do. so then we have leak around enclosure and around the shower looked crappy. we called and since then they were out two more times. granted no leaks but two days later caulk is bubbling. never heard back from the gal who wanted our money and never heard from the guy who came out to give quote. you would think he'd come back to see if we were happy. all we get is a bill and because the wife told this gal the first time we had the leak we should be getting 10% or more knocked off this bill. so the bill comes and it's @ $50 less. that's it. still no show or call from these people to see if we are happy with the job or look to actually see what the problem is. really?? oh I didn't mention that when they came back to recaulk they didn't use the stuff I bought they used cheaper stuff...maybe why it's bubbling at the door of the shower? I'm not happy with using handyman. we get what we paid for I guess. we had a different quote for about $800 more but it would more than likely had been done right. I will check with my credit card and see what I can do as far as disputing this if that's the only way to go. but they should make it right. we'll see what happens.

This site is pretty useless. I created an account and posted a project, but not a single contractor has responded. It's a simple project (drywall repair and painting of a living room), so it's not like the job is too complicated. Of the contractors that supposedly "match" my project, when I tried contacting them via the site, I get routed to HomeAdvisor.com, which is another lame site. Finally you get to a "request direct quote" button, or something named like that, and still no one responds. I've "directly contacted" three possible contractors and not a single one has responded. In one case, I've been waiting for over a month, so the delay can't be attributed to the holiday season.
My other huge complaint about the site is, once you post your project you're brought to a page of "local contractors" that match the criteria of your project. Now, I live in Arlington MA and the list of contractors on that page were from Florida, California, and Virginia. No where near my location and completely irrelevant to my needs.
Also, at the Handyman.com site, there's no way to directly contact customer support. The only option is to send an email, but you have to pick your subject and they only offer the subjects of "Partner with us" or "Become a contractor." Like I said, lame site and no customer support. Don't bother - go directly to Yelp and search for real contractors with real reviews.

I called this man to replace cabinets in my kitchen and fix the plumbing from a pipe leak and he did not give me a estimate. the following day he came over unannounced tore down my kitchen and wanted more money. after tearing down the kitchen he did not return the following day. on Saturday my brother and I decided to fix the mess he made and he showed up. he first of all asked for money and I asked him to finish the job. he proceded to do the work, worked for about 2 hours and then left to eat lunch. when he returned I gave him some money and asked him to complete the job. he stormed into the kitchen and back yard and picked up his tools and QUIT. his name is IVAN KOCHERGIN don't use him!!!!

I'm receiving router bits from this outfit and when I try to pay the bill on line, I input all the contact information, but this stupid 4-poit star just sits there and rotates - nothing happens. Their web developer sucks. I'm really sorry I ever got involved with this bunch of creeps. They're associated with something called Scout.com somehow. Worst experience with a website I've ever had.
