About us

The people of City Handyman are not only handy, but friendly, experienced and good communicators. We’re passionate about all things handyman (we love making trips to Bunnings—and not just for the sausages) and we take pride in being a local business, not a franchise. Which means we’re dedicated to providing the best, most honest, service possible to Melbournians.

Vehicles and Tools

If you’ve ever tried to park in the Melbourne CBD, you’ll know it’s very tricky. That’s why, for certain jobs, we’re using scooters and bikes. The toolkits are compact and our handy riders know their way around the city. We use traditional trade vans and utes for the more complex and larger jobs. These are stocked with a wider tool range, and a healthy mix of common materials and consumables.


City Handyman was founded in 2011 with a vision to change the handyman space in Melbourne, proudly gaining support from The City of Melbourne Small Business Grants Program. The present and future at City Handyman sees further honing and fine-tuning around the delivery of handyman services, including further adoption of technology. All whilst keeping balance and a grasp on the traditional handyman vocation.

Things We Can’t Do

We have a varied mix of divisions and services, and we love to assist as much as possible. But we also know our limits, and some jobs are just not in our wheelhouse. Some of the services not offered by City Handyman include Structural Building, Plumbing, Electrical, Appliance Repairs, AC Repairs & Installation, Large Tiling Jobs, Large Plastering Jobs, Carpet Installation, Gutter Cleaning.
