vanity installation

Odd Job Handyman Services replaced a bathroom vanity for me at a reasonable price and in a highly professional manner. The tenant who occupies the unit where the vanity is located described the workmanship as "perfect."

I highly recommend Odd Job Handyman Services

Rebuild and repair a large two level deck

Oddjob did an excellent job of repairing and rebuilding my large 2 level deck. They took off an entire layer of one deck and inspected the structure making repairs where necessary. The job was made especially hard due to the current shortage of lumber because of Covid. But they were able to source and get the wood that was needed. The team were polite and professional and extremely hard working. Always communicative and effective. This is the second time I've used them and I would not hesitate to use them again or recommend them.

Great service and reliable company

We are so happy with the services provided by Oddjob Handymen Services.
We have asked for their help on 3 occasions now and each time their staff is professional, polite, does the job really well and leaves the place spotless.
Our recent plea for help with a painting job that had to be done very quickly is a great example of their helpful attitudes. In one day, their painter Alistair arrived and did a terrific job painting our wall. We are very grateful and would recommend this company anytime.

Odd Jobs is perfect for your small to mid size job~

I'm not a very "handyperson", so it was always hard to find a contractor that would take on a job that was (a) financially viable for them (b) met my scheduling timelines. Fear not! Odd Jobs is the company for you!

The handy people are vetted and extremely knowledgeable at what they do. The cost is on the upper range of a particular task, but nothing that is out of the ordinary. I find the work to be extremely top notch and the customer service to be great!

I think more importantly I trust their advice and work, which is extremely important to me when it comes to tradespeople.

I would completely recommend this company for an "odd job"! if you're looking for something more specific/large scale, you may find other contractors better suited for your goals, however, other than those cases, these guys are great for the small-to-mid size job.

Give them a shot! you won't be disappointed! thank you!

Installation of sliding doors

I am very pleased with everything about my first OddJob.ca experience. Prompt, professional/expert service provided at every step of the way, from booking, to on-site consultation, to recommended solutions, and to successful installation of the product by Justin and Ramon. Just top notch service all the way.

AVOID AT ALL COSTS

I highly recommend AVOIDING this service.

The quality of the work was very poor. So bad that we were forced to hire another company to finish the work.

They provided a quote for 5 fixes, 3 of which were complete. They still charged for all 5.

When we tried contacting their team on 10+ occasions to speak with a representative no calls were returned and they proceeded to bill the card fully.

We were then sent a text message saying that they were not able to provide a refund.

Terrible customer service and lack of professionalism.

Do not use this service.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review and feedback from customers is always appreciated.

OddJob provides estimates which are time-based and not flat rate, which is indicated in the estimating process itself. Invoices are adjusted after completion either up or down to reflect the actual time needed to complete the job. If there is a finishing problem, we also offer our warranty policy to correct issues free of charge. Sometimes technicians run into issues that pose a larger challenge or cannot be repaired despite attempts to do so in these cases we provide the customer with this information in person and on their invoice.

In general, our customers appreciate the flexible transparent pricing even when it doesn’t work out in their favour, they appreciate that the effort was made to correct the issue and they now have the information to make decisions about the next steps with confidence.
We are sorry that you were unhappy with the process, but we will continue to do good business with the City of Toronto.

Adjusting cupboard door hinges

The European-style concealed hinges of approximately 20 kitchen and bathroom cupboard doors proved too complex for us to do ourselves. Odd Job sent out Alastair, who arrived promptly for the appointment. He worked quickly and efficiently, adjusted all the hinges, including some that required awkward manoeuvring, reinstalled one door and provided helpful advice. He was very professional throughout. The price was very fair.

Clearing everything from the balcony and storage locker

The 2 man work crew arrived on time. They were efficient, polite, understood what needed to be done and did not waste time completing the task of removing everything for future balcony replacement. Emptying out a storage locker that once again involved taking things to the ground-level dumpster and some things to the tenant’s unit.

More about Odd Job Handyman Services

ABOUT US

Odd Job Handyman Services began in 2008 with one man and his truck. It's since grown to be one of the largest and most reliable contractors in Toronto, serving thousands of homeowners and businesses throughout the city. On Feb. 16, 2017, it was one of five handyman services in Ontario to be officially named "Best of 2017" by Homestars, the largest network of home professionals in Canada.

Odd Job offers a wide range of services including drywall, painting, tiling, flooring, millwork, hanging, junk removal, furniture assembly, basic plumbing & electrical and all general repairs. The work performed by Odd Job is covered by a two-year warranty.

The staff at Odd Job is fully licensed, bonded and insured, and every member has been background-and-identity-checked. They're hand-selected from the "best of the best" in local professional circles (each with at least three positive references) and subjected to a series of in-shop tests before they're admitted into the team.

HISTORY

It all started with Justin George, an exceptionally-handy property manager who had great difficulty convincing professional contractors to visit his building for "small jobs." Justin, a red seal tradesman, was so tired of contractors telling him "it wasn't worth their time" that he was forced to take care of most of the repairs and maintenance himself.

He realized he was far from the only person who was in this predicament. There were many people without the time, the tools or the talent to recaulk their shower stall, hang their favourite paintings or repair a few pot lights.

Not everyone trusts the mystery men on Craigslist and Kijiji, and so Justin wanted to provide them a professional option. "It might be a small job, but it's a big deal," Justin said, "People need a company that treats it that way."

Mr. George graduated from George Brown College with a degree in mechanical engineering and from the University of Western Ontario in 2011 with a degree in technological education, manufacturing and construction. He is an Accredited Manufacturing and Construction Educator and a member in good standing of the Association of Certified Handyman Professionals (ACHP). He loves cats, guitar and building things (anything). His most important values are honesty, quality and consistency and his motto is: "There's always a way to get the job done right."

PRICING
