Handyman in River Valley

About River Valley

River Valley is a planning area located within the Central Area of the Central Region of Singapore. The planning area shares boundaries with Orchard in the north, Museum in the east, Tanglin in the west and Singapore River in the south. 

In the 1840s, there were two River Valley roads that ran on either side of the Singapore River. The Singapore River was seen as a valley between Fort Canning Hill, to the north side of the river, and Pearl's Hill, to the south side of the river. The one to the south of the river is now known as Havelock Road. The present River Valley Road runs from the junction of Eu Tong Sen Street and Hill Street to Delta Road. The roads on either bank of the Singapore River were named River Valley Road — the current River Valley Road and Havelock Road. Both these River Valley roads were present in John Turnbull Thomson's 1844 map. 

Redevelopment of River Valley began in the 1960s with a clean-up of the polluted Singapore River. In 1969, then Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew tasked the Public Works Department and the Public Utilities Board to develop a plan to clean up the river and Singapore’s waterways. By 1983, all the lighter companies were moved from the banks of the Singapore River, as were squatters and hawkers. A major clean-up operation was then implemented. 

Under the Urban Redevelopment Authority’s 1991 Concept Plan, the Clarke Quay and Robertson Quay areas along River Valley Road were zoned for entertainment, residential and hotel accommodation purposes. During the 1990s, numerous private condominiums were also built along River Valley Road.

So what is a Handyman?

handyman, also known as a handyperson or handyworker, is a person skilled at a wide range of repairs, typically around the home. These tasks include trade skills, repair work, maintenance work, are both interior and exterior, and are sometimes described as "side work", "odd jobs" or "fix-up tasks".

The services that a handyman can provide vary widely, and so do the rates for such services. The current market and the personal preferences of the handyman affect both of these greatly. Basically, a handyman is a jack-of-all-trades, an individual who is skilled at performing various tasks. Handymen usually take on jobs like minor home repairs and other construction tasks.

How big or small these tasks are, along with how experienced the handyman is will be what determines the rate that you will be paying. Some handymen will estimate how long a job will take and base their rate off that, or will offer a flat rate for the whole job. Paying a flat rate can be advantageous for you if your handyman gives you an honest estimate of how long the job takes.

The flat rate also protects you from complications that may arise that make the job take longer than expected. 

What is a Professional Handyman Company?

Most of the handyman prefer to do field work rather than being desk bound and managing the business. While many operate as an individual or a small team and registered as a sole proprietor, there aren’t many truly professional handymen company that are licensed and insured. It is easily to assume that handyman work seems simple, sometime a twist of fate can turn into disaster and can get out of control. Such as drilling through a conceal pipe or electrical wires. 

 the difference with a professional handyman company is that...

This incident can be prevented with the right use of equipment and know how. However, when disaster strike, a professional company will be able to handle such crisis whereby the individual cannot. Professional handyman company have many teams of technician with various core trade specialist such as carpenter, plumber and electrician.  Professional handyman company have more accountability, reliability and credential due to the licensed issued with stringent requirement by the relevant authorities such as HDB and BCA.

A professional handyman company is more organised, better equipt and better trained with constant updates on the current practices. In order to comply to the regulatory of the authority, the cost of a professional company operation gets higher compared to a sole proprietor. Not many wants to or are able to run a full pledge professional handyman company. Ultimately, engaging a Professional Handyman company will give you a peace of mind knowing that the job will be completed due to the solid support of the organisation and its capability to deliver as promised.
