Everything you need to know about ARC handyman services of Carpinteria:
Q. Do I need to purchase the materials on my own?
We have many handyman repair supplies on our truck and will bill you for the materials used on your project. For supplies that we do not carry on our truck, you have several options:
- You can purchase materials ahead of time and have them ready for the handyman when he arrives on the job
- You may follow the handyman to the store and pay for the materials directly. This option will be billed at our regular hourly rate.
- You may have the handyman pick up the materials needed for the job. This option will be billed at our regular hourly rate and we will add in the cost of the materials, plus a small handling fee.

- We bill for time and materials.
