to WillowReply: newmanpenny
Ironically, I have just started cleaning houses again for extra income. I have been getting $14 an hour. I tried to message you privately but the website would not let me. My email address is newmanpenny@adelphia.net. I also have an 18 year old that would love extra income and would  be more detail oriented and probably charge less.

Need Oreck Air Purifiers Cleaned of dust ~Reply: Willow
I also want someone who is good with cleanliness and detail to clean up some Oreck Air Purifiers that got covered with drywall dust during some remodeling.  I have all the instructions for the purifiers, just not the time.   I'd like to know what anyone would charge.  And that job could work into more household jobs.  My phone is 951-776-9503 and email is:   willowmorningsky@yahoo.com

service feeReply: rick
our minimum service call fee is $85.00 and we deduct $5.00 if you're a senior citizen. we don't get paid what we are worth neither but the state of california laws dictate the insurances we must carry to do business here legally, thus it reflects in our pricing. our number is (951)353-2804, my name is rick. my office is in riverside but i live in an older area of lake mathews.

I understand...Reply: newmanpenny
If this was a new light or something. This is two wires. Already sticking out of the wall, that have been hanging out in the rain for two months now. I dont get paid what I am worth at my job, and so the tradition continues. I think I have actually hired you in the past to put up my horse light in the back yard, which was completely different as it was a brand new light.
Curious, not that you offered, but what would a electrician charge to connect two color coated wires and two screws?

handymanReply: rick
i mean no disrespect but you really shouldn't be having handymen doing your electrical. i've been doing electrical for 32 years and our best customers are homeowners and handyman who try to do electrical. two things you want to always make sure are done correctly is electrical and gas, these two things can kill people and destroy property if not done to code and correct. i know you don't want to pay what it cost for a real electrician but it's a small price to pay in the long run if it's done incorrectly or the person doing it gets hurt on your property. that's why we have to carry workers comp and general liabilty insurances to protect the homeowner.

regarding handymanReply: newmanpenny
I understand trying to be helpful, but I posted here as I was looking for someone that lived in the area.
I dont want referals that live a distance then tell me that I am not paying enough for gas.
I honestly thought this would be an easy job and that people are more handy than I.

I need a handymanPost: newmanpenny
I need an outside light put up. I took the old one down, the one I want to put up is used and came from a mobile home, we switched lights. But I cannot get the new one up and I need longer screws for it. I drove to ace and still cannot find what I need.
I also have a towel rod that I would like up.
Both of these should be really easy jobs for someone that is handy.
I want to pay $20 for this or less, but I think that is all that is fair. I know an electrician that charged me $20 per outlet last time I was desperate and I felt completely robbed.
I live near the general store. I am home mornings. Other family is home all day, but I want to be here when someone comes to help.
Thanks for your time.
