When planning a move, most people hire professional packers and movers. However, very few people think of hiring a handyman for the move. Hiring a handyman before and after your move can make life much easier. It can also save you a lot of money in the long haul. 

Here’s why you should hire a handyman before and after a move. 

Benefits of hiring a handyman before a move:

Patching holes

When you remove paintings, artwork, and fixtures from the wall, you may end up with holes and unsightly patches on the wall. Hiring a handyman for the job can prevent this from happening. They have the right tools to remove the hangings from the walls without causing damage. They can also patch up the holes quickly for a neat finish. 

Repainting the walls

Before you move out, it is a good idea to remove any blemishes or damage to the paintwork of your old home. If you can do it, that’s good; however, in the hustle and bustle of packing, you may not have time for it. A handyman can do quick patchwork or even repaint entire walls efficiently.

Dismantle the furniture

You must dismantle large and heavy furniture such as beds, dining tables, and bookshelves, before you pack and carry them for the move. A handyman can help you with the dismantling process. They have the right tools and skills to do so quickly and efficiently. 

Benefits of hiring a handyman after the move:

Assembling the furniture

Once you have reached your destination, you need to assemble the furniture you have dismantled before you can set it up in your new home. A handyman can do it for you efficiently. They can also help you set up wall hangings and other decor items in your new home. 

Install lights and fixtures

Once you reach your new home, you will need someone to help you put on the lights and install fixtures. You can do it yourself too, but it will take a lot of time, and there is always a risk of accidents and injuries. Handymen are professionals who have trained for years to do the job correctly. 

Fixing pipes and gutter cleaning

There can always be hidden plumbing issues and problems in a house that you get to know of only when you use the fixtures or plumbing. A handyman can inspect the plumbing system and fix any underlying issues in your new home. They can also clean the gutter so that you don’t have any clogging problems in the future.
