Forum Title: Lowball Of The Week
Sometimes I troll the Craigslist ads for amusement. Here's a great job - not. Love the part about how he/she got milked before by people working hourly. I wrote back a No offense, but... email. What do others think about this outrageous punchlist for $1500?Handyman / Carpenter Needed ASAP - $1,500 Total for Jobs Reply to: job-247130006@craigslist.org Date: 2006-12-10, 11:52PM EST I have a multitude of tasks for a professional skilled and experienced Handyman. If you would like to respond to this ad please tell me something more about yourself and what you can do than the 200 phone numbers I will receive in response! The tasks are listed below and not limited to: put electrical plates on outletts install moulding paint moulding remove airconditioners (three) from office dispose of buckets of paint put together two bar stools put together two kitchen cabinets - make sure kickboard is finished put together bathroom cabinet put together bedroom furniture (to be furnished) shave closet door rehang 2nd closet door and shave if necessary paint doors paint inside closets rehang/install heater boards regrout kitchen floor where needed replace electrical recepticles where needed remove small track in bedroom - possibly replace remove bedroom blinds replace bedroom window treatment hardware install bathroom window treatment hardware razor blade paint off from window in living room paint or popcorn finish roll kitchen ceiling install finishing rail between carpet and tile around living room seal tile and grout in kitchen and bath place covers on kitchen ceiling put moulding around bathroom cabinet be responsible to pick up materials such as baseboard moulding, etc. There could be some tasks added or taken away to the above list. I think this workd will take more than a week but should take less than two. I am not paying an hourly because I have had previous people take advantage and milk the hourly. If you get the job done in a week - great. The jobs/tasks MUST be done well, be complete and without damage! Most of this job will be performed in Quincy although you would need to come to Boston (immediately) to remove some air conditioners from my office (still in the windows - BRRRR) and bring them back to my Quincy home. You will also need go to Home Depot to purchase and transport appropriate materials to perform the above tasks. Send an email with your experience and references. * Location: South Shore & Boston * Compensation: Flat rate $1,500
