Reader Mail: Good Handyman?

3/13/2008:

A Hoboken411 reader needs a decent handyman to do some light work, such as spackling and hanging shelves.

She tried one of the handymen listed here, and she said “bumbling and mumbling” was all she got when she called.

I typically do these things myself, since I’m 10x better than MacGyver ever was, but I’m too busy to offer assistance.

What recommendations do you have?

I recently worked with a reliable, reasonably priced local handyman that I would be happy to refer for odd jobs like installing shelves, painting, intalling kitchen cabinetry, assembling Ikea furniture, putting up pictures, cleaning out yards/basements, etc. if anyone needs one in the future. Email me at mpocsik@g2.com.

I am a good handyman. I am small and am happy to stay that way. Will do smaller jobs and am fully licensed, insured and if I hire labor, they are covered as well. References available.

Maybe anyone looking for a handyman should try asking the slow-driving man in the broke down green van.

There’s a really great handyman/carpenter that tries to do mostly eco-friendly work (i.e, buys materials from local shops, paints with low VOC paints, etc) who I highly recommend. His name is Zak and he has his own company called Green Solutions Home Improvements, LLC. He can be reached at greensolutionsco@yahoo.com. Hope this is helpful! 🙂
