Expat Guide for Odd Jobs
Los Angeles provides scores of home maintenance help, such as plumbers, electricians, and painters. So much so that choosing the right man for the job can be more trial and error. Most rental apartments have a building manager who will fix any discrepancy as part of your rental agreement. If it is beyond the manager’s abilities, he/she should be able to give you a reliable referral.
Websites such as Citysearch list odd job men alongside bloggers comments. Citysearch provides word-of-mouth feedback, saving you time asking your neighbors or work colleagues for referrals. Check Craigslist if you want especially inexpensive help. Here you will find professionals and second jobbers looking to earn extra cash on the weekends.
Listings for odd jobs can be found on the following websites. Also use word-of-mouth and check supermarket notice boards.
