How Much Money Does A Handyman Business Make?

Running any kind of business comes down to how much work you want to put in and how much you’re willing to grow your company. Hard work pays off, and a lifetime of work spent growing a business can see huge returns. Getting there is all part of the struggle that people grow to love and be proud of.


But how much can you expect to earn if you start your own handyman business?


Let’s have a look.


A report by found that the median hourly cost to hire a handyman in Australia was $25 per hour.


The average Australian handyman makes $25 per hour.


The same report found that the average annual wage for Australian handymen sat at $43,000 per year.


$43,000 per year is the annual salary for handymen in Australia.


However, it’s also worth remembering that this is the rate of pay for hired handymen. If you were to start your own business, you might find that you’re able to grow your business into something much more profitable. As your hire more workers and become capable of doing more jobs, you’ll be able to increase your income.
