How It Works

HandyBuddy provides instant online quotes (not estimates) and we'll match you with the most qualified assembly, installation and tech set-up & support experts near you based upon your location, scheduling preference and skills/ratings of our experts. Our industry-leading ExpertMarketplace  vendor management platform ensures that not only are you always provided with 5-star service by the technician that comes to your home or office, but that you are also proactively kept informed of the progress of your service request every step of the way.

Get a No-Haggle Online Quote

On each Quote page, you will see a specific price for your project. The price for the service depends on your location and the options and/or ADD-ONs you select. The price you see quoted on the service details page is not an estimate. It's a firm, no-haggle quote. And reviews from other customers who have used this particular service from HandyBuddy are displayed right on every quote page!

Choose a Scheduling Preference

Click the calendar right below the quote. The first available date will be first date you can select. This is the date that will be shared with the provider. They will contact you to confirm your actual appointment date.


If after you got your quote and have chosen a scheduling preference (step 2), you can get matched with a certified local expert for the service in question by clicking the HIRE AN EXPERT > button.

Verify Your Request & Book Online

Lastly, verify details of your request. The final step online is to click the BOOK NOW button on Request Summary page to submit your request. Don't forget to finalize your request by filling out all of your service details, including your name, address and contact info on the last page of the process. Click SUBMIT and you're done with the submission.

Get Matched

After your request has been placed and received, the HandyBuddy Service Desk gets to work. They search our extensive Expert Marketplace database of approved preferred providers and match you with top-rated and certified local experts.  Matching is done based on your location, skills required, your scheduling preference and their availability.

Stay Informed

Once a match has been made, you will get notified via email and we'll share the provider's contact info with you at that time. You will also receive regular email/SMS updates (depending upon your communication preferences) throughout the fulfillment process letting you know when your appointment has been confirmed and any other issues requiring your attention. In addition, you will be able to login to your HandyBuddy account at any time to track the status of your request.

Get Done, Pay and Provide Feedback

When the job is done, payment is due. It will be collected securely based upon the payment method we have saved on file with you. We will text you (depending upon your communication preferences) and email you asking if the service has been completed to your satisfaction. If not, the provider will return to address any outstanding issues. The provider isn't paid unless/until we know you are 100% satisfied with the service.

And unlike those other "on-demand" platforms, we aren't a lead-generation service - no estimates; no back and forth with questions about your project. Just submit a request and get done.
