    "I would say depends on what the job is and how far they have to travel because you have to take into consideration the costs the tradesman has ie van insurance public liability insurance running costs of the van so sometimes people shy away from handyman jobs because there’s no money to be made and we all need to make a living but I would say anything between £20 and £40"
