The recommendations in this article apply to Pros outside of the state of California.
Your Very First Assignment
We understand that first-day nerves can creep in, but don't worry! While you're well-prepared for the tasks ahead, let's help you understand what to anticipate before, during, and after your initial handyperson job.
Before the job begins, we'll provide you with the customer's address. Through the Angi Services for Pros app, you can directly communicate with your customer via calls, texts, or chat. This is your opportunity to ask any questions if the job details aren't crystal clear or to discuss any modifications or clarifications needed for the task.
When heading out for your first handyperson job, ensuring you have the right supplies is essential for a smooth and successful experience. Here's a list of common handyman supplies you should consider bringing along:
Making a Strong First Impression
If the customer is present at the start time of the booking, consider requesting a quick overview of the job. This gives you a chance to confirm any specific instructions for the job.
This is also a prime moment to discuss the duration of the booking with the customer. If you believe that the allocated time isn't sufficient, you can suggest they contact us to extend the booking. Alternatively, you can negotiate additional time or services directly with the customer.
Wrapping Up Day One
Once your work is complete, taking a final look around is a good idea before you pack up. The customer might have left instructions regarding key return.
After you've checked out, the customer will have the option to rate your service. We'll handle all payment matters, including processing any tips.
Congratulations! Your first handyperson job is now successfully completed.
