Work Description: Recessed LightingComments: I had a horrible experience with this company. I was verbally quoted a reasonable price prior to service (they do not provide written quotes). The first person they sent out was incompetent and rude, so I requested another handyman. The next guy they sent out was very nice and professional but took much longer than quoted because he had wired something incorrectly and had to fix the issue. I was charged almost $600 more than originally quoted and called to complain about the charges and asked to be partially reimbursed for the overage. The owner agreed to reimburse but then never did and they stopped answering the phone. I'm not even sure if they're in business anymore. I very rarely write reviews and almost never write negative ones but this is an exception. Please don't use this company. Like another reviewer mentioned, they are indeed crooks.

San Ramon CA
Work Description: No Show!!Comments: SCAM Artists!! BEWARE!! Forced me to pre-pay for an electrician and never showed... or called. STAY away!! Reported them to police and American Express!!
Work Description: 1-hour handyman service for all the small, odd jobs I had around our new apartment including hanging curtain rods, putting up shelves, and assembling a TV stand.Comments: My handyman arrived 2 hours late (!!) and no one from Handyman Can answered my calls as I waited. The service was great and thorough once the handyman arrived but my experience with the company was too difficult for the decent price and I probably won't hire them again.

Work Description: Handyman and Carpentry WorkComments: We had a number of small and odd projects to complete on a tight deadline. We called Angies List to only be referred a horrible contractor who didnt show up. Making matters worse our deadline we thought would be impossible to meet. We called Handyman Can at the last minute and they were fantastic. They had a superb contractor Ed take care of all our needs. He was fast, superior in skill and to our surprise very reasonably priced. We will use Handyman Can for all our improvements. Just GREAT!
Work Description: Door InstallationComments: Pete was courteous, skilled, and resourceful, going the extra mile to visit one last store for the door we wanted most. He understood what we wanted and took pains to deliver, leaving us with a fantastic new door installation. We couldn't be happier with Pete sent by HandymanCan.
Virginia Beach VA
Work Description: I scheduled them to come out to my house today, but they never showed up or called or anything. I waited more than the window of time I was giving and I never heard anything from anyone.Comments: I specifically waited extra time cuz they said this specific day they were having an hourly rate special. That's probably why they didn't care if they ditched me. However, they're the ones that suggested today to me due to the special rates they were having. I just wanted the door damage fixed. I was going to be rembursed by the furniture delivery company who caused the damage, so it didn't matter to me if I scheduled the repair on the day they were running a special.
Work Description: Dryer outlet install/wiring
Work Description: Hired and they initially came out and identified problem.Comments: Next, were to call back with estimate to replace vs repair. Rep with Handyman Can has called couple times inquiring if I've been contacted and then telling me he'll have the electrician get in touch. I've still not heard back from them so I'M DONE WITH THEM!!!! Don't want to hear from them again. Starting over with someone else.
Work Description: replace small amount of sidingComments: did a good job. work was done in a speedy manor
Work Description: He does good work but took a lot of time at the start so he's running late on the project. This could cost me more money than I planned on.Comments: I hope the next 2 days will be more satisfying.

Mercer Island WA
Work Description: sagging gutter repairComments: good job
Work Description: Roof cleaning and carpentry work.Comments: Over charged from the original quoted rate. And to be sure, I asked the Pro to submit invoice. After 3 times of "Ok I will do that" he never did send the invoice or justified the charges. All these were documented in my cell phone's records. Will not use again, and I recommend you do not as well.
Work Description: Installing bathroom shower grab barsComments: Our handyman arrived when he said he was going to be here and did a very good job. He also left us instructions on where we would need to install more grab bars if we chose to do so. All-in-all a very good job.
