Testimonials & Reviews

I looked for a handyman service or app for Montreal to help mount a TV in my
bedroom for a long time, and finally found Sam’s website. The testimonials do
not lie, this was an all around excellent service!
They were able to fit me in during the busy holiday season, and were efficient, friendly and fast! They helped fixed a kitchen cupboard, put up artwork on a concrete wall that required more tools, which they had handy, and mounted my 32 inch smart TV. Sam and his partner always asked me first how I wanted something done, and gently explained to me how to move my mount for optimal viewing.
I live alone and am clueless for handy work, so I was more than happy to find someone who not only works well, but who respects their clients and is eager to help them. I will definitely recommend Sam to friends and family and will certainly use his services again! Thank you Sam & friends!
Thank you again so much! :)

I just love it.

Excellent, Sam, thanks so much. If we need any additional work for Tatiana in her apartment (this one or any future one), we will definitely reach out again. Tatiana commanded your team for their professionalism, punctuality and great care in their work.

Excellent, top quality service received last autumn and worth every penny of investment for a new bed assembly. I called Sam after reading online reviews about the bed I bought with people complaining that their self-assembled bed parts were not lining up or were getting loose etc. It was obvious from reviews that the product was likely just fine, but people were just doing a bad job at the assembly and finding it complicated to properly align parts.
Sam and Ben used their power tools to perfectly align all parts and create strong flush joins, such that it is now nearly a year later and my bed is still completely perfect.
They worked very efficiently and were also very tidy and helpful in wrapping up all the packing materials, so the entire experience was completely hassle-free and brought me immediate peace of mind that my assembly was both reliable and robust for long term use.
Highly recommended and I will use Sam's services again.

Sam, Ben, and Adam were amazing and a great team of professionals who assembled my bestar murphy bed in my condo. They are 5 stars and did a fantastic job putting a beautiful bed together on the wall so that I could save space. They were very clean and tidy, and his team even vacuumed everything and helped get rid of all garbage. They were very reapectful and can do anything you need for assembly and structure. Any furniture assembly? they can handle easily. Sam went above and beyond and found screws and tools that made my bed safely secure on my wall. Safety was his priority and his team's attention to detail is a distinguishing feature of their expertise. Their team even pointed out to me items that were damaged from the shipping company so that I could inquire about them.
They don't just care about the work? they go above and beyond to care about you as a client and they ultimately want to do the best job for you possible. I give them my highest recommendation!

Thank you Sam for your professionalism and expertise.Sam installed my tv. He and his assistant Ben knew exactly what needed to be done to install it in an old plaster wall, were efficient, clean, used the vacuum during and after the installation and even hung a large piece of artwork for me! I will definitely be calling you again. I have many other projects comic up!

Sam is a true professional. I called him to install a shed for my backyard. He did a great job and gave me some great ideas to maintain the shed for the long term. He always replied to my emails in a timely manner . Sam is very knowledgable and i will definately call him up again in the near future. I highly recommend him if you have special projects.

I have been hiring Sam since the spring of 2013 and he has since remained my go-to guy for a wide variety of installations and fixes in my home. He is thoughtful, knowledgeable, reliable and trustworthy. The quality of the work performed has been consistent and his communication skills are impeccable. I look forward to hire him again in the future; highly recommended!

Last Dec. 28th, 2017, I hired Sam to install chandeliers, curtain rods, floating shelves and perform minor plaster work in my apartment. I must say that I was very impressed with his professionnalism, courteous manner antd attention to details. You could tell Sam was experienced in his field. In addition, to his excellent customer skills, he actually listened to my requests and provided me with recommandations.
At the same time, Sam was training his assistant, Karl, to perform the tasks. His patience and concise explanations were duly noted and the tasks were completed with my entire satisfaction. Both Sam and Karl were very organized, very neat and wore work slippers throughout the apartment . In addition to the tasks, Sam informed me of the fire safety code with regards to the position of my curtains near the radiator.
Needless to say, I highly recommend Sam for handywork, special projects - residential and commercial. I have drawn up another to do list and I will be most definitely calling him within 1 month for professional handywork. Thank you once again, Sam, for your expertise and your trustworthiness and honesty and making me feel as a valued customer. Wishing you much success in the New Year 2018!

I hired Sam to build several pieces of IKEA furniture, put up the blinds and curtain rods in three rooms, put together a lamp, hang a very heavy painting, and hang a special mirror. He worked straight for 6 hours putting everything together, making sure that the picture was perfectly centered and in exactly the place I wanted it to be and ensured the special mirror was secured well and positioned just as I wanted it to the wall.
He worked diligently, quietly, respectfully and never left a mess behind when performing each of the tasks. He had a very polite and friendly attitude and always sought my input on anything he was not sure of. The IKEA furniture was built excellently and securely.
I could not be happier (as I hate building Ikea furniture). When Sam left, everything was in place, no garbage or dust left behind. It was as if he had never been over to do all he did. Thank you, Sam, for an excellent job.
I hired you before, and I will continue hiring you to do all my handyman needs.
8:02 PM on July 14, 2017
It was an honor to meet Sam and Adam. They repaired my entrance door in no time. Sam listened to my explanations, offered valuable input on what the problems were and what they will do to fix them. They were extremely professional and organized. They cleaned the mess after the job was completed. They were protective sleepers over their work boots. The job was done perfectly. And most of all, I felt valued as a customer and my house was respected. I will definitely be a returning customer. You are an inspiration to us all! THANK YOU!!!

Hi Sam did a truly excellent job. He arrived proecisely on time. He was fast and professional and cleaned up after the job of rehanging my oak and glass slidding door top the kitchen. Very professional and highly recommended.
I am a very demanding individual and he met or exceeded my expectations !
7:40 PM on November 21, 2016

1:26 PM on April 24, 2016
I hired Sam to fix a number of doors on my newly purchased property and I am very satisfied with the result. He was punctual, professional, and kind. When he was finished, he explained the issues and how they were fixed as well as much appreciated suggestions on maintenance and some security tips for the outdoor doors. What I am happiest about is that I now have a go-to handyman for all my needs in the future!
8:09 PM on February 11, 2016
Sam is GREAT! He is punctual and sociable! He came to our apartment and installed a huge and heavy mirror I inherited from my Grandmother. Sam explained all the steps (my curiosity, of course!) and mounted the mirror with such care and precision! A lovely contact to have for future projects! Thank you so much Sam & best of luck!
2:52 PM on January 20, 2016
i just want to say how happy I was to meet Sam and have him install my two TVs.

Sam, you were great!!! Thanks again.
4:28 PM on June 14, 2015
We hired Sam to assemble three large pieces of Ikea furniture (including an elaborate wardrobe) as well as several smaller items. In addition, he also replaced two curtain rods and installed a number of wall-mounted objects. He worked steadily for 7.5 hours with only two short breaks and did everything on his own. He was patient, and despite the fact that it was late on a Saturday, he wanted to be sure that everything was completed to our satisfaction. Sam is extremely personable, hard-working and neat/organized - we would highly recommend him and will most definitely be calling him again in the future. Thank you very much Sam!!
8:41 AM on May 30, 2015
We recently hired Sam to deinstall some things as we are moving. What had started off as just taking down a tv bracket and a hanging pendant lamp turned into a full service help. Sam helped us with all the extras and was a great help when it came to wrapping my big breakables ie glass table top, large mirror and painting. We were incredibly impressed with his skill, efficiency and amazingly reasonable cost! I would 100% recommend Sam for any job, big or small!
5:55 PM on May 27, 2015
Sam did an amazing job installing our gazebo. He was very punctual and well-mannered. Will definitely hire him again in the future. 5 stars
7:43 PM on May 17, 2015
We hired Sam to set up my son's playground and he did a fantastic job. My son and a lot of the neighbourhood kids did not make his job any easier either... They hung around until it was done and tried to play while he was working! He remained very professional and was very courteous with them.
The workmanship was great as well. Sam was always on time and very polite as well.
I would recommend Sam anytime! Your in good hands with Sam.
5:27 PM on May 11, 2015
Sam and his helper showed up on time, they were very polite and professional. They did a wonderful job putting up my gazebo and various other tasks. I will definitely use Sam's services again for other household projects that need attention. Very satisfied!! Thank you very much!!
1:51 PM on April 11, 2015
Sam did a great job with all the small things I needed done around the house. He was efficient and polite. He cleaned up after each of the jobs so that when all was done, it was as if he was not even there. I was extremely satisfied with his service, and I will definitely continue to call on him for all of my household repairs.
Thank you Sam!
6:50 PM on November 8, 2014
Sam is by far one of the best. He is a perfectionist and gets the job done right. He goes above and beyond to make sure his clients are satisfied. I would highly recommend him. He is the perfect handy man! I will definitely use him again and again. Look no further. Hiring anyone else would be a mistake.
8:40 AM on October 13, 2014
We requested Sam's services last week and he was an absolute joy to work with. Firstly, his e-mails were always prompt and courteous while addressing all questions. They were always very punctual !! Sam also arrived on time on the given appointment day. He managed to complete our entire 'To-Do' List and even some tasks that were not on the list. He was also happy to offer his input on future plans and tips for present projects. We can't thank you enough Sam for getting our list of seemingly impossible tasks done !!!!! We look forward to working with you in the future and will happily recommend you to our family and friends and anyone else we meet that might need an excellent handyman !!! Many thanks once again,

This is my first time I contacted Sam to install my air conditioner. I am very impressed and happy with his work. He is very professional, and nice. He did an amazing job, and was also very helpful with giving me tips. I would definitely recommend him again not only to install my ac, but any other jobs around the house that's needed. If you are looking for a handyman, he is the real deal and very professional and won't leave until the job is done right. Thank you Sam for such a great job, and all your helpful tips about keeping away the insects. Lol!!!
9:33 AM on May 20, 2014
Sam recently put together our Frontenac kids outdoor playset and did a terrific job. He worked diligently for 3 days until the job was complete. He paid attention to all the details (i.e. making sure the structure was level, using additional material). He also happens to be a very nice guy and was not bothered by my kids bugging him with questions about tools and the like. Definitely recommended.
Thanks Sam! :)
8:36 AM on April 30, 2014
Sam is the best handyman I've ever met. I found him on the classfieds and called him up to repair a door. He asked me to email him the pictures for an estimate and I received a within 24 hours with a reasonable quote. He contacted me on his way to my place and arrived on time with his neatly-packed toolbox. He looked at the problem, explained everything in detail, and fixed the door in less than an hour. I asked him for a receipt upon payment and he emailed it to me electronically the night of.
Very professional! I'd recommend him to anyone.
10:12 AM on March 30, 2014
Great work! Clean, efficient & very knowledgeable. A pleasure to deal with.
5:07 PM on March 17, 2014
I can only say good things about Sam! It begain with a timely response to my inquiry & what
I considered a fair estimate for several jobs to be done. He arrived on time, is clean, pleasant
and efficient !
No fear of being alone with him & he knew how to remedy a variety of problems in not too much time.
Kudos to him & I feel like I found a "gem".
9:47 PM on March 12, 2014
Thanks so much for being the handyman you are because we had given up hope that we would find one we could count on and you showed us that honesty and integrity still exist.
Sam the Handyman is who you should be calling if you need any work done around your home. He not only does the job but does things that weren’t included in the job. He gets a 5 star rating from us.
6:13 PM on January 24, 2014
I enjoyed very much Sam`s professional work and it's a pleasure to introduce him to all my friends in need of handyman services. In spite of a very busy schedule he is always ready to help you and his talent in fixing different home problems is really amazing.
Thank you Sam
2:06 PM on January 16, 2014
Sam did the installation of our new dishwasher. The entire experience was pleasant and very professional. First, the price was fair and we did not feel that we were being "nickle-and-dimed"; a clear price and a clear explanation of the service. Second, he was very flexible on the time arrangements especially since two vistis were required; one to disconnect the old unit ready for pick-up on delivery of the new one, and another to install the new one. Third, he was exactly on time for both visits. The work was to our complete satisfaction.
Highly recommended. (2014)
9:15 PM on December 1, 2013
I hired Sam to install a garage ceiling storage lifting system. Sam was most professional, resourceful and paid a lot of attention to details. You can tell he wants to get the job done perfectly and he does. Sam tells you what he is going to do and actuall does it!. I would not hesitate to rehire him and highly recommend him.
7:32 PM on November 30, 2013
Sam did a couple of installations at our home recently and I was very happy with his service as well as his punctuality (along with an SMS "I'll be there in 10 minutes"), and I particularly appreciated how he was able to accommodate my crazy schedule on short notice. Excellent work - glad we found him - have bookmarked his webpage for future reference!!
12:36 PM on August 10, 2013
We needed furniture assembly and several general repairs and handyman work moving our son into a student apartment in Montreal which is not our home town. I found Sam's website on the internet , read the wonderful testimonials and took a chance emailing him. He replied promptly with an appointment day and time. He asked for a general 'to-do' list and any instructions we could forward for furniture assembly for him to prepare for. We are so grateful to have found Sam. When he arrived on time with his fully stocked bag of tools on wheels, his knee pads and his blue tooth in his ear answering calls: " this is Sam the handyman how can I help you?" I knew we had found a very skilled professional - and that's very hard to find today. Sam's work is efficient and meticulous. He is very knowledgeable and doesn't leave a mess. You may be hiring a handyman but you are really getting an educated, engineering professional who takes pride in his work. Everything was stress free and went seamlessly. Sam is a very kind, pleasant and trustworthy gentleman. Finding Sam is like finding Holmes on Homes! Don't hesitate, just get in touch with him and book your appointment well in advance! This is my first online testimonial ever and its a pleasure to write this to refer Sam.
Thank you so much Sam!
6:35 PM on July 8, 2013
We called Sam to do some furniture assembly and lighting work for us. We were so lucky to have him come to us in a short notice despite hid busy schedule.
Sam was extremely slick and efficient at his work. He saved us a lot of time and effort as we had recently moved into
12:59 AM on July 7, 2013
Sam installed a TV in our kitchen today, his work is very meticulous and professional, this is the kind of handyman that would help you with your projects at home, especially if you have a nice house and you don't want to mess it up.
he is very efficient and independent, he would also throw in some valuable advices.
8:05 PM on June 20, 2013
I made contact with Sam through his internet posting and he installed a great deck on my balcony. I was very impressed with Sam's passion and acute attention to detail. He is reliable and professional. He listens to your concepts and offers great suggestions. I am very pleased with the final result. I strongly recommend Sam to anyone searching for handyman services and I look forward to calling him again on future jobs. Thanks Sam!
10:32 PM on June 18, 2013
My family would like to thank Sam for the excellent work he has done and the great service he has offered us. We had a Big Backyard Playset from Toys r Us to install. From the initial phone call Sam was very polite and reassuring. He offered an immediate appointment date. Promised the job would be done in 2 days and did just that. Very respectful of our home and backyard. He works very neat, organized and did not leave anything laying around. He listened to our requests, gave us his professional opinion and did as we decided. We would definitly recommend Sam the Handyman to everyone.
Once again thank you very much!
1:00 PM on May 10, 2013

9:17 PM on February 28, 2013
Sam wall-mounted my 55" TV today. He was able to fit me into his schedule on short notice which was most appreciated. He worked patiently and methodically and completed the work to my satisfaction. We have already talked about an outdoor project for which Sam will return in the Spring. I look forward to working with Sam again.
9:57 AM on January 14, 2013
We would like to thank you so much for the wonderful job you did for us yesterday. You are a true professional and we would highly recommend you to everyone. A very pleasant personality and an excellent worker. We will be calling you again. Martin & Jane Franklin (St. Laurent)
10:06 PM on January 13, 2013
After months and months of being frustrated by a number of growing jobs to be done around the house, Sam came to my rescue! In only a short few hours he completed my entire wish-list: installing a stove hood and peephole, moving a light fixture, putting up large shelves, and troubleshooting a number of other mistakes (filling holes, adjusting screws, etc.). The stove installation proved to be much more complicated than it needed to be because the manufacturer did not provide all the necessary tools and information, but Sam was persistent and figured out a way to make it work. He was punctual, courteous, friendly... and he didn't seem to mind that I kept looking over his shoulder in curiosity, and asking a million questions I will definitely hire Sam again in the future, and will be referring him to my friends.
10:11 AM on January 8, 2013
WE HIRED SAM TO DO WORK IN OUR APARTMENT. SAM IS VERY EFFICIENT AND A PERFECTIONIST. WE RECOMMEND HIM HIGHLY. IT IS VERY DIFFICULT TO FIND A GOOD HANDYMAN THESE DAYS. AFTER MANY HANDYMEN THAT WE HAD PREVIOUSLY WHO MESSED UP OUR JOB AND WE HAD TO PAY WE HIRED SAM. WE WERE VERY SATISFIED WITH HIS EXCELLENT WORK.
9:19 PM on January 6, 2013
Sam was great! We needed some work done in time for the holidays...Sam replied right away to our email and sent us a list of costs associated with each job. He came on-time, finished all the work we agreed on and for the prices he quoted! He even saved us money by troubleshooting the cause of our problems rather than simply replacing parts, and gave us suggestions for home-improvement jobs down the road. In our experience, this level of honesty / integrity is unheard of...his work is of good quality and we're very happy with it.
We will definitely use him again!
5:16 PM on December 30, 2012
We love Sam. He came to mount our television to the wall: a simple job, right? Turns out it was an exceedingly complicated job. Since our television is an old model, the mount we had purchased was not suited. He jerry-rigged a very creative solution by drilling extra holes in the mount, making various attachments, and sending us to the hardware store for extra bolts and more. Alas, we still needed an extra bracket for the whole thing to work. Despite spending the better part of two hours at our house the job could not be finished. Sam did not want to take any payment for the two hours he spent at our house on a snowy night, time not including the trip here and home. We had to insist that Sam take at least a little bit of money.
After we got the missing piece, Sam returned to mount the television. He did a remarkable job. The mount is so sturdy he did pull-ups on it! We loved his work so much we also had him mount a chandelier.
We will without doubt be recommending him to our friends.
Not only is he competent, by the way, but he is super nice and fun to talk to. We like him so much we even made up a theme song for him. We can't recommend him highly enough.
11:21 PM on November 27, 2012
Sam thank you for going to so much trouble to help me find a solution for my son’s baseball bat idea...
...I came across your name, and you seemed like a nice, smart guy; I was right.
I appreciate your recommendations and the time you spent to help me. Thank you again for being so thoughtful.
All my best,
6:47 PM on November 13, 2012
Extremely efficient and knows his stuff. I called Sam in to help me out after a previous not-so-handy handyman's botched job. He fixed everything up wonderfully and I won't hesitate to call him if ever I need help in anything else! Although some people may find him over priced, I'm telling you from experience; go with someone who knows exactly what they're doing to your walls and furniture, even if it costs more, it's worth it.
7:46 PM on November 9, 2012
Sam, thanks for coming by tonight and fixing our broken shower along with a bunch of other problems, all in about half an hour! YOU'RE AMAZING! My boyfriend Dave just now said to me "he just crushes jobs" and it's true - you're a whirlwind of effectiveness. Now our shower works, and the cabinet that has bothered us for about six years works perfectly. Plus, it's energizing and uplifting just to be in your presence. Thanks again Sam and we look forward to the next time!
5:42 PM on September 25, 2012
Sam helped us move our apartment from a state of transition into a home! In just a few hours he hung hooks, mirrors and wall arts as well as assembled and mounted a cabinet and a spice rack. Sam was so gracious and so kind; offering opinions and advice willingly - drawing from clear experience and knowledge.
After having unpleasent experiences with other services in montreal I would definitely recommend Sam. We felt really comfortable working with him and the results were amazing. We look forward to using him for all of our house issues in the future!
Thanks so much Sam!
Emily and Liz
8:53 PM on September 24, 2012
Sam installed a 50" flatscreen for me in a pretty tight spot above a closet and it came out looking beautiful. We went through all the positioning together to make sure that I got exactly what I wanted.
Sam was prompt, polite, efficient and most importantly did an excellent job. He even gave me parts and advice for a future project I mentioned to him.
Overall excellent experience and will definitely recommend him to friends and will use him again if I need a handyman again.
12:55 AM on September 10, 2012
Sam put together an entire apartment full of Ikea furniture for me in one day! It would have taken me a month to do this! So in my book, Sam is Superman. To make it even better, his rate was very reasonable and he and was completely professional, polite and NICE! He even put together some extra things I had lying in the room and went out of his way to be helpful in arranging furniture and advising me on other improvements I could make. I would definitely hire Sam again and have already recommended him to several friends.
1:06 PM on September 8, 2012
Sam the handyman. He worked in my Condo in Montreal, for about 10 hours in total.. Honestly speaking, he very professional in his work. Arrives on time, has all his equipment ready and organized, does his job in precision and knowledge and gives you advice about the best way to do a certain thing related to handy work. His prices are competitive and worth the high quality of work delivered by Sam.
From now on, Sam is definitely the person I'll call when I need any handiwork done in my Condo.
10:40 PM on September 6, 2012
Sam is very professional, polite and efficient. He was punctual and had everything he needed to get the job done. He also provided us with very useful advice and shared with us his personal expertise in installation and organization of furniture. I would definitely call sam again if I need anything else done.
7:09 PM on July 22, 2012
I would like to thank you very much for your advices. I did check them all and it appears that I will find a fixture that will suit my needs.
I am impressed to receive an answer so quickly from someone that does not have much to gain from me. I really appreciate that.
Since my family lives in Mtl, I will refer them to you for services.
11:17 PM on July 20, 2012
I recently returned to Montreal after many years in BC where temperate climes reign. Needless to say the extreme heat last week had me scrambling to install AC. We found Sam on the Internet and he was available almost immediately. His professionalism, knowledge and efficiency impressed us all. I was happily enjoying cool temps after he installed two ACs in very short order. We are keeping his number handy!!
7:12 PM on July 19, 2012
Sam was super professional. He assembled and installed my Ikea furniture and was kind enough to show me how to change some of the settings. Moreover, he made some good suggestions as to where to place the furniture and made appropriate measurements to ensure the items were centered. I am grateful for the work Sam has done in my office. I highly recommend Sam for future jobs! Thanks.
10:23 PM on July 11, 2012
If you are looking for a Handyman 'par excellence', look no further because you've found him. I was impressed by Sam's ability to tackle any job I gave him, be it mechanical, electrical, or carpentry, and he succeeded in repairing them all with great skill and care! I also appreciated the fact that he was able to use parts that I had on hand, or alter them, so as to avoid having me go out to purchase more. At the end of the day (and my long to-do list), everything was working and looking fabulous. As Sam says, "Everything can be fixed!" and , by george, he's absolutely right.
Thank you, Sam, for a job well done! By the way, I've started a new list!
9:06 PM on July 8, 2012
I am very impressed on many levels. Sam showed up on time and worked non-stop for almost 4 hours on several repairs I couldn't do myself. He had a positive can-do attitude, was pleasant and friendly, and made me feel at ease. He offered some very useful tips and advice and best of all, demonstrated what a very resourceful person he is.
Thank you Sam!!
I'll be putting you on speed dial!:)
5:14 PM on July 1, 2012
Thank you, Sam, for doing such a fine construction of a custom frame in a recessed wall for a wall bed installation. The frame is so strong that when you finished you said to me, "Go ahead, you can climb on it," so I did! The purpose of the frame was to serve as a very strong support for a wall bed to be installed the very next day!. When the wall bed installers arrived and saw the frame, they (being professionals) remarked how strong it was. Thank you for a job expertly done.

Just yesterday I got to know about this website and called Sam immediatly and him being a good guy that he is he promised me to have my tv attached to the wall as soon as possible.. and he came the next day. The most impressive thing about his work was he taught me everything about positining my tv. Excellent service and the most important thing is he left a smile on our face.
Keep it up Sam!
God bless you!

I hired Sam to put together a rather large playset in our backyard. The work he did was flawless, but what was most impressive was his friendly personality, positive energy and professionalism. He battled through the cold weather and in the end, a sweet little 3 year old girl is ecstatic to have her playset.
1:55 PM on June 2, 2012
I met Sam today. He came to install my air conditioner. The minute I opened the door I felt confident about him seeing his honest face. He was polite, on time, organized and effective at installing it. He even gave me some useful advice as to how to upkeep the appliance so it will have a " long and healthy" life.
11:51 PM on May 12, 2012
I greatly appreciate you Sam. You have done a great , professional , outstanding job at my place.
All I can say that I can't be satisfied more about dealing with such a honest handyman who really cares about doing the best for his clients. In addition, I really love how skilled, organized and ready you are. You were always on time and prepared with all tools and materials that might you need.
I wish you all the best, and definitely will highly recommend you for all my friends.
Thank you again!! was a pleasure meeting,knowing and working with you!!

The Best handyman ever in Montreal area. And I'm being modest... he gets Everything done professionally efficiently. Today he 1. fixed up a hard-to-build cat tree (he salvaged cat towers that are too short and wobbly to be on its own, by combining them together... he has kitty-knolwedge too, he saved my cat's tree!) 2. modified and fixed my desk and coffee table 3. assembled a big IKEA furniture (which would've taken me HOURS with bruised fingers and knees) 4. wall-mounted shelves (with which I listend to his advice on space efficiency) 5. assessed problems with my bedroom door and fixed it 6. recycled a scrape plank (from my desk) as a walking platform for my cat, etc.
Long story short, seems like he can build anything and fix anything!!!
HE'S THE HANDY MASTER!!!
6:13 PM on April 15, 2012
Sam assembled an entire apartment's worth of furniture for me. He did a fantastic job! He is extremely efficient in his work and handles everything with lots of care and attention to detail. I am extremely happy with his work and very pleased to have found such a reliable and professional handyman. I'll be sure to contact Sam again in the future and have already recommended him to friends and colleagues.
4:55 PM on February 19, 2012
Sam is a great professional! He installed two flat screen tvs for me with great speed yet also a lot of care. He is attentive to details, efficient and friendly. I would recommend his services to anyone and I intend to call Sam again next time I have to do something which exceeds my very limited manual skill!
11:15 PM on January 29, 2012
Sam installed a flat screen and did some minor home repairs for me about 3 weeks ago. I am glad to say that everything still functions perfectly and I am very pleased with his work!
He is ponctual, knowledgeable and very professional! He had many cheap and easy tricks for me to fix some issues in my house. He even took it upon himself to fix some shelving when he noticed something I had missed!
I would recommend him to anyone. Give it a try, you won't regret it!
3:13 PM on January 13, 2012
This testimonial is very late in coming on my part, forgive me Sam.
I first met Sam when he installed my very large bookcase in my apartment on the South Shore - it was a complex installation and Sam handled it very patiently and professionally. I then recruited him "quite by accident" a year or so later to come in to our office and take on one project after another; projects (innovative at times) that we were simply not equipped to handle. He now has a permanent spot in our contact list for anything we need to get done. I can always count on his well-thought out advice too!
I would highly recommend Sam as a trustworthy source for any of your at-home (or office) project requirements.
4:07 PM on December 22, 2011
Sam put up my home entertainment unit and installed the TV in 2 hours, whereas it would have taken me all day (maybe two!). He was punctual, fast, friendly, knowledgeable and did a great job. I was so impressed I recommended him to my colleagues at work and to my landlord the next day. He will be my number one guy next time I need services or repairs done. After meeting Sam, I won't settle for second best.
10:21 PM on December 21, 2011
I just moved in to a new house , and who else was there to help us out with many things? Sam!
First time I called sam was a few weeks ago, I really liked his service, so I called him a second time and then a third time! I know that with the days to come, I will be contacting Sam again.
Extremely professional, organised and takes care of every small detail! This is what one looks for in a handyman. And a very important thing is the price you pay is lower than other handymans. Guaranteed satisfaction with Sam (I can tell you that after a few hours he spent at my place!)
On top of all that, you get a friendly guy with interesting conversations
7:26 PM on November 28, 2011
Over the past two years, we have dealt with numerous construction-workers (because of extensive post fire renovations).
Sam outshines the best of them ! He is highly organised, well equipped, fair priced, attentive to details and proud of his work. He should be ! He also gave us good advice to accomplish some work ourselves. We will not hesitate to call him again.
9:41 PM on October 30, 2011
Sam is a wonderful person, very professional, honnest, punctual and the work done in my house was just excellent. I highly recommend him for all the handy work you may need around your house. I will call him again for sure for my future jobs. Thanks again Sam !
2:01 AM on October 11, 2011
In barely two hours, Sam fixed drywall, plumbery and electrics. This guy rocks! And still found time for some good advice and some interesting conversation. Very knowledgeable and well organized (asked me to send photos of the damages before and had everything needed with him).
I won't hesitate a moment hiring him again!
4:56 PM on September 6, 2011
Sam the handyman came to my house today. Today was a very good day :).
Sam is friendly, efficient, and better than your best expectations. He instantly inspires you with confidence, Full of knowledge, he tells you what you need to know to do whatever work you can for yourself. He points out ways you can avoid creating problems that you'll have hire him to fix later. But I'll hire him again anyway, because there are still things I can't do, and ways my home can be improved.
Sam is just the man to do the job.
10:51 PM on September 1, 2011
I found Sam with a Groupon, and wondered if he was going to "stretch" the tasks beyond the 2 hours. I was wrong! In fact, I had to scramble to find things for him to do...he was quick and efficient, and more importantly, honest...
the one task I thought would take the entire two hours was done quickly because he told me it wasn't as complicated as I thought.
Good sense of humour too and professional attitude, I'll call again
2:09 AM on August 12, 2011
Sam was a great help in the house. He came in on such short notice, and fixed everything that needed to be done in a couple of hours. His profesionalism and experience guarentee that the job will be done very well.
He will definitely be the man to call if I need any other work to be done in my apartment.
8:25 PM on August 9, 2011
I have nothing but huge praise for Sam the Handyman. Like others have indicated he is talented, friendly and professional. He goes over and above what you ask of him and gives you a product that is of excellent quality. He just built a huge and very challenging swingset for us and I am so grateful that we "lucked" into finding him on craigslist and calling him to do the job (the swingset is Frontenac model from Big Backyard... you can see it here: http://www.bigbackyard.com/canada/frontenac.html) .
Sam is definitely the man we're going to call for our next project!!! Thanks again, Sam!!
11:07 PM on June 24, 2011
Sam did a fantastic job on a myriad of tasks: he whirled around the house, fixing two doors, figuring out what was leaking in the bathroom and why, fixing a wobbly table, repairing a broken chest of drawers, mending a light fixture, all with lightening speed and efficiency.... amazing! I would love to hire him again and recommend him enthusiastically. Thanks a lot Sam!
12:04 PM on May 22, 2011
Sam did a great job on our place last night. We had multiple small tedious jobs that we were dreading doing and he came and did all of the work willingly, He was very professional, and did not stop working the whole time that he was here. He mounted our TV on the wall, fixed two doors that would not shut and even installed our ikea table! He was very friendly and trustworthy. I recommend him 100%. A great handyman!
7:13 PM on May 9, 2011
Sam is absolutely incredible. He came to my house to build a huge swing set (the Centennial II Play Set from Big Backyard) after the work I started to do collapsed in a windstorm. Distraught over the accident, I reached out to Sam to rebuild the set with obviously a lot more speed, skill and precision than I had done.
He really went overboard. Not only did he put the set together in a couple of days (and even worked after sunset!), but he went beyond the manufacturer's instructions by adding extra pieces of wood to reinforce and secure the swing set so that my children can be completely confident in the installation.
He's a true gentleman, a man of his word, and full of integrity. He's also really good with kids, and it's obvious that he enjoys what he does.
I highly recommend him for your projects, and will certainly call on him again when needed.
11:52 PM on May 3, 2011
I would like to recommend Sam who is a true professional. He is highly skilled and my family and I have the most respect for him. He has never disappointed us. When my son first moved into his apartment in Montreal we had the pleasure to have Sam assemble a table,chairs, headboard and window treatments.
He is wonderful, caring and precise. We had a big problem the other day and needed a sink and faucets to be installed with short notice. Sam made the time to accomodate us even though he was busy and again did a great job.
He is also very humble. My family and I highly recommend him . Bonnie
8:31 PM on April 26, 2011
Sam....what can we say? We truly wish we had gone with him for ALL our home reno needs from the beginning...we would have save ourselves plenty of time and money and he is a real pleasurable and interesting person to boot!
The job performed was a chandelier installation in a slightly tricky space and he did an amazing job on time and for an excellent price...
5:01 PM on April 5, 2011
If you're looking for a friendly, polite, reliable, efficient, honest handyman, Sam is your guy! Sam put together a tv stand for me and set up my tv and hooked up dvd player, etc. he also put up a shelf in my bathroom, fixed a wobbly toilet, put together a dining room set and a bed rail. He was awesome!
I will definitely be calling Sam again for my other projects. Thank you Sam! You came through when I needed you on short notice! You're the best!
10:27 PM on March 24, 2011
We just had Sam come to install a faucet and the associated pipes. This was the first time he did any work for us and it certainly won't be the last. He arrived precisely on time.
His work was excellent, and he is pleasant and polite. He left the space cleaner than the way he found it. I look forward to a bigger project next time Sam!
1:39 PM on March 23, 2011
Last summer Sam mounted IKEA TV storage units onto our living room wall. He did the work as quickly as possible while being efficient. When we recently bought a PAX wardrobe from IKEA, we had a lot of difficulty mounting the sliding doors and getting the alignment. Sam came immediately and completed the work.
My husband and I are very satisfied with Sam's work. I will recommend him without any hesitation to anyone looking for a handyman.
10:06 PM on March 20, 2011
Sam came over to help us put up a light fixture, tv shelf, blinds, a mirror and even gave us renovation ideas. Not only was he efficient, honest and punctual, but Sam is one of the most pleasant people we know.
Sam came by to help us twice so far, and we will be definately asking him to come help us again with all our future home reno projects. We highly recommend his professional services and cheerful disposition to anyone.
Thanks Sam for all your help!
Peggy & Charles
10:58 AM on March 17, 2011
Sam came to my house to put up blinds, light fixtures and other various jobs, and I have to say he was the most pleasant, efficient and clean worker I have ever encountered. I have recommended him to my friends and family and will definitely be calling again when I need something done! Thanks Sam! Regards Hayley.
10:49 PM on February 18, 2011
I can't stress enough how great Sam was, he not only helped me fix my stove but was kind, considerate, and a true gentleman. He didn't give up until he got it just right, which says alot about his character.
I would recommend him highly!!! I know WHEN I need anything done in the future I will be calling SAM The handy GENTLEMAN!
3:11 AM on January 31, 2011
Thank you Sam for helping me get my new apartment into shape. I couldn't have done it without you. I was really impressed with your professionalism, friendliness and creativity.
From installing the dishwasher to designing wardrobe doors, you really can do anything. I look forward to you coming back to work on my bathroom next!
10:54 PM on January 21, 2011
sam is the best handy man ever! he fixed the dishwasher so well, it made my day! he is not only friendly, but also very resourceful and very helpful. he even went out of his way to buy the missing part in home depot for me. he wont give up until the job is done perfectly. not only that, his price is very reasonable.
i will definitely call him back when i need something repaired. he can fix anything! thank you so much, sam! best of luck,
7:10 PM on January 6, 2011
I contacted Sam for getting curtains rods and a new lock for my apartment. I found Sam to be very punctual, honest and hardworking. I would love to hire Sam in future again, and I also would strongly recommend Sam for anyone who wants to hire his services Regards,
12:19 PM on December 31, 2010
Hi Montreal (and sam) I just wanted to tell the world how impressed I am with your services. My tv hangs perfectly on my wall and the chandelier you installed is incredible. You were efficient, knowledgeable, super friendly and incredibly accommodating. I could not have found anyone better in Montreal. Sam, you are truly a jack of all trades, there is nothing you cannot do. Perfectly. Thanks again, I will be referring you to all of my friends and family.
Have a lovely new year!!
9:14 AM on December 31, 2010
Hi Everybody, I just want to write this words to let you know that I couldn't have hired someone better than Sam to work in my house. He is a very responsible and serious man. He has a lot of experience, and he has the desire to help people and make the best of his job. Good luck,
Maria and baby Nicole
9:44 PM on November 29, 2010
After looking around to find someone to help us install our new t.v. to a wall mount, we contacted Sam. He was really friendly on the phone and he came by in such short notice (which we needed cause we had a new tv and no way to watch it) He was on time, very friendly and very professional. Future shop price was 149.99$ and a week's waiting time, not only was it cheaper it was faster as well. Thank you Sam, You truly are a lifesaver.
5:20 PM on November 21, 2010
To Sam & and potential future clients, -You were surprised with many small jobs and figured them all out QUICKLY and PROPERLY -You were ON TIME, POLITE, HONEST -I strongly recommend you to anyone looking for work of any sort (residential or commercial) -WILL CERTAINLY CALL YOU AGAIN! Best regards,
11:31 AM on November 1, 2010
GREAT WORK Sam! The Ikea Library you installed looks fantastic with all the books in it, and it is as straight as an arrow, even with the extra weight of the books! Thanks for all your help in putting a straight bookcase on an old-uneven floor! Merci Beaucoup!!!
11:51 PM on October 28, 2010
Sam, I really appreciate the work that you did at my place tonight. I particularly appreciate the fact that you visited my place on such short notice. I found your work very reliable. The three doors that you fixed at my place had been bugging me for the past two years.
I'm really happy that today I decided to call someone to have them fixed, and I'm glad that I found you on the internet. I will definitely contact you again in the future for the repairs that I need for my place.
12:27 AM on September 28, 2010
