For basic residential and commercial repairs / handyman services I usually charge by the hour with a minimum charge. Payment due when services delivered.
For larger projects, I am happy to provide an estimate. We can negotiate whether it is best handled on an hourly or fixed price, and the payment schedule. For larger projects, a fixed price may make more sense for both of us.
Do you expect money up front? No, however, if the job requires a significant outlay for materials, I may ask that you pay the supplier directly or pay a portion on delivery as it suits you. In short, I am not a financier, but I understand that you need to protect your own interests (we have all heard the horror stories of half-finished jobs). Work will not begin until we are both happy with the arrangements.
