Since I bought it in 2007, Alistair (The Ruing Handyman) has been the go-to handyman for doing the carpentry and building jobs around my house. No job has been too big or too small and he goes about his work in a professional manner. He’s also very prompt to respond, does the job in a timely fashion and he organizes his schedule to work in with what I want. His work is of a high standard very neat and tidy and he knows how to make those hard-to-do jobs look easy and the work looks great when it’s finished. As a bonus, his charges are very reasonable too. For any building job around your house, call Alistair – that’s my handyman golden rule!

I contacted Alistair to complete a carpentry/plastering job on our house. The job was completed without fuss, at a fair price & to the highest standard. Most importantly, Alistair was very willing to schedule the work around our busy family timetable.

Alistair Rule (The Ruling Handyman) has looked after running repairs on our Queenslander for the past 5 years. He is reliable and professional, and goes about his jobs with a remarkable cheerfulness. We have always been happy with the end result. He lets you know how he is going with time and budget. His daily rate is reasonable and most important is that he is as honest as the day is long. He’s a good man to have on your team.


Being the proud owner of a Renovator’s Dream, I had a perpetual “Things to Do” list. Now I call it: “Alistair’s List”!

He gets things done. He is honest, hard-working, highly (and multi) skilled and very flexible with his time. He is also friendly, funny and patient.

I highly recommend his services. He has kept this renovator’s dream alive.

We were delighted to discover Alistair who can turn his hand to almost any household and handyman task, indoors or outdoors. No job was too small and he carried out all his work with efficiency and courtesy. We would be very pleased to recommend him to those seeking the services of a good all round handyman.

Alistair carried out a very professional job on my retaining wall repair. It looks great and the clean up afterwards was excellent. Highly recommended
