So here at honestly handyman I am all about being completely transparent with you guys I want you guys if you guys are looking to get started as a handyman I want you guys to know exactly what you're getting into So everything I do from my work videos to DIY videos to how to price handyman jobs Everything is in that completely transparent mindset I try and show you guys the ins and outs of everything the goods and the bads so that is what I'm all about So in today's video, I want to talk about how much a handyman makes How much money a handyman makes per hour per day and per year so let's get started So like I've talked about before in some of my past videos On how to price handyman jobs when I first started out in the handyman business I started out just pulling a number from thin air and that number was $50 an hour I felt like that was kind of a good starting point because after all I was only making like 20 something dollars an hour at my at my full-time job To begin with so I thought $50 an hour was great But it wasn't until I really looked into how much money I needed to make as a handyman To support my business and my personal life When I really made some big changes in my pricing structure so that's really kind of where these numbers come from is where when I figured out my handyman need is what I call it my hourly need so typically what most handyman range in an hourly need is anywhere from like $50 an hour and this this is really dependent on where your location is around the world And then how much money you need to kind of operate your own lifestyle, you know, whether your wife works or not.
So Typically most handyman go from around 50 dollars an hour to somewhere like 110 dollars an hour On the high end so though that's kind of like your hourly rate for me. Personally. I do not charge by the hour anymore I did when I first started now I charge by the job. So I go out and get people estimates and So they know exactly what they are paying for a specific job I know exactly how much I'm making on the Pacific job as well.
So typically That's what most handy men try and aim for and for each for every handyman It's going to be a little bit different, you know But you need to go through a kind of your own calculator figure out exactly how much your hourly need is as a handyman I have one of those tacky laters available at handyman journey.com That you could check out as well a link that in the description below so one of the things that I really love about this handyman business is the freedom that this handyman business gives you and that is Really found in your pricing structure as well.
So a few days ago for instance I'll show you guys kind of the low end right I've worked for an hour and a half last last Thursday I worked for an hour and a half and I made a total of two hundred profit so that was and that's all I made for that day was that two hundred dollars, but What I gained from that day was I got to spend a whole lot of time with my wife and my daughter That was a day that I chose to kind of only work, you know like an hour and a half that day I only scheduled one job that day because I wanted to do other things with that day most days. I range from somewhere around 600 to 800 dollars profit per day and that's working anywhere from five to eight hours per day Typically, you know more like five to six hours a day all depending on the job scope and kind of what's needed in that But like I've talked about before typically the jobs that I like to do are our honey-do list items The the jobs that typically make me the most profit and I have a whole video on that I will link that up here as well the the jobs that make me the most profit are the ones that that require the least amount of material so like your ceiling fan installation or your outlet replacement or replacing a toilet or You know, I'm clogging a sink things like that.
So the way that I typically make make money is by doing Little here and there jobs. So like I'll go to a house that I'll do I'll be maybe 15 or 20 items on one house in one day and that bill really just adds up so So in my handyman job the days that I'm actually working Probably the least amount of money that I've ever made in a day that I'm actually working is somewhere around 150 to 200 dollars the most amount of money that I made is about 1,300 to $1,500.
I can't quite remember That was kind of when I first started. I had one really good day I had a lot of you know kind of thousand-dollar days, you know throughout there, but that was probably my highest 1300 to 1500 So you could definitely make a whole lot of money in this last year. I profited seventy thousand dollars from this business and So this year I'm planning on doing a whole lot more So and again all these all these figures they differ for wherever you're out around the world So don't take for what I'm saying for what you need to be aiming for But you need to figure out what your hourly need is That's one of the most important things about pricing and figuring out how much a handyman makes per hour per day and per year But those are just some of my figures yours may may differ a little bit, but that is what I have found of how much a handyman makes per hour per day and per year and also talking to a whole bunch of Other handyman as well.
