Because of the difficulty in finding English-speaking odd-job workers in Hong Kong, most non-Chinese pay a slightly higher price for companies that cater to expats and offer handyman services. These companies generally charge between HK$350-$450 for the first hour, and HK$150-$250 for every subsequent hour. Their services include painting and decorating, furniture assembly and fitting, general maintenance and repairs and plumbing. If you are renting a property, it is necessary to consult the owner first as any repairs or decorating is usually their responsibility. You do not normally need to consult the management company of a building providing the works carried out will not affect any shared areas.
