I use this company often and have only been disappointed once (because I couldn't have what I wanted, and maybe you CAN'T put a round peg through a square hole). The people they have sent to me are friendly, smart and professional. They have hung curtain hardware, removed curtain hardware, installed air conditioners, removed furniture, glued decorative hooks to tile in my bathtub (neatly and straight) with marine glue, and finished painting my apartment when I walked away from the project, all for a reasonable fee. I email them first and for everything I can't or don't want to handle myself. If they can help, they do. Try them and you'll probably call them again.

I contacted them in March '09 to assist with fixing the improper installation of a washer/dryer by a previous repairman in a very small closet in my kitchen. They were friendly, efficient, and provided great service. The unit worked fine

We called NYCityStuff to do a bunch of odd jobs around the house, from wall hangings to small electrical malfunctions, that we couldn't get done ourselves and were extremely happy with the results. Lee was our handyman. He was very pleasant and everything was done perfectly and quickly. We would definitely recommend this service.

They did a great job painting, repairing water damages and cracks. Edwin was professional, honest and flexible, making suggestions to save money without compromising too much on quality. I interviewed several other companies, and found

Highly recommend. Handyman was a general contractor. Gave him 3 separate, unrelated jobs, he knew exactly what to do. Was friendly, very easy to work with and willingly went beyond was was required in order to get the job done right.

I would recommend these guys 1,000 times over. Punctual, clean, efficient, and quality work. We had them do a couple of jobs (TV mount, washer/dryer installation, old washer removal and door removal) and all were done great. We also are planning on having them install a chandelier and window treatments once they come in, which I know they will do perfectly! Really fantastic and very reasonable!!! A lifesaver if you are not too handy yourself!

The work and the communication was really top notch. Flint came over to do a small job involving molding. He was on time (and very cool), I could pay with a credit card; it was easy as pie. I have used them for one job and will certainly use them again.

NYC Stuff is awesome. I've used them twice now, once for painting and once to hang drapes, and both times the guys were prompt, friendly, professional, and efficient. They did a great job and I'll definitely hire them again!

I needed some things disconnected and replaced before I moved. NYCStuff sent Flint. He was perfectly on time, worked every minute he was here. It was a pleasure to have a postive attitude, inteligent competent person working in my home. Flint brought tools, and hardware and lots of stuff (including plaster in case there is a ding in the wall.). When he did not have the perfect screw, he went to the hardware store. He was neat and cleaned up after himself.

NYC Stuff responded to my request sameday, schedule the work for 2 days later, called to confirm the night before and called within a couple hours of completion to make sure the job went well. These guys were so easy to work with - they will do all my work in the future.

I have always had problems getting apartment work done. I hired an electrician who just shrugged when the newly installed light switch had to be jingled to get it to work. NYCStuff fixed it for 1/3 the money.I have used them twice to get my many item "to do" list done. Both times, I got an expedience, hard working intelligent worker. The "that's no problem, I can take care of that" attitude was such a pleasure. And they do the whole job - install the light fixture / plaster the dry wall / paint / clean up.NYCStuff gets all my future work.

Flint, the guy sent over by NYCityStuff was a lifesaver. he worked with me to retrofit an IKEA loft bed so that it would fit in my tiny (50sq ft.) bedroom. I had been worried that the project would be impossible, and we certainly found a few unforseen problems along the way, but Flint had a great attitude and a lot of experience and he made it work better than I could have ever hoped for. He was personable, knowledgeable, and great fun to hang out with. The company itself was easy to work with and paying online was pretty fast and simple. I would definitely recommend this service to anyone looking for someone reasonable, knowledgeable, and professional to help them with a project they can't do themselves.

We could not be more delighted with NYcitySTUFF handyman. We complied a list of a dozen items that we needed done (ranging from re-grouting our bathroom, to replacing a kitchen faucet, to moving items into storage, to replacing light fixtures). They sent one person to do all of these things and he knew how to competently and quickly do each item that we had requested. All of these items, which we thought were going to be such a headache to get finished, were crossed off our to-do list in one short weekend, and it's been a great relief ever since.

UPDATE TO REVIEW:
The owner of NYCityStuff recently called & explained internal staffing issues were to blame for my headaches. He very fairly offered to refund me for the hours spent on the shelving that never happened. Refund arrived quickly & the owner apologized very sincerely for the treatment I received.

Still sounds like service is best for day jobs only. Speak with Paul if you run into probs - he does care about his company. My treatment can't be undone, but if you have a prob, speak with him directly.
---------------------
I called NYcityStuff based on reviews on City Search & Yelp, & types of jobs covered. I wanted a certain look but didn't know if what I wanted was doable so I was looking for some input.

I wish I could say they were great, but honestly, 2 guys (Matt & Ed) came once, took measurements, were to call me with estimates for the floor-to-ceiling shelving I wanted, they disappeared. Poof! Never heard from again.

The 1st guy (Matt) never showed/called again after his 1st visit. A week or so later, I called the company's office...& emailed [note: I had to do all the follow up...NYcityStuff office never contacted me to say someone was or wasn't coming, or wouldn't show again]. Apparently, Matt had family issues. Ok, no prob. Could he or someone have called me & resched a new person?

2nd guy, Ed, shows up, does a great job fixing my apt door, takes measurements for the shelving & some of my hardware to try out--and again, is never heard from again. So now, 7 weeks after guy 2, I'm still trying to get my hardware back!

I was courteous, polite, offered beverages as it's summer & it was hot. I paid on the spot with a check that didn't bounce. I had fully expected to pay somewhere around $1,000 for the job & was ready to do so.

So my suggestion is, go ahead and try NYcityStuff for day jobs only. You're better off making friends with a neighbor, or continuing to pester a relative to help you for the big projects.

Ed did a really amazing job at my apartment this morning - he was on time, worked quickly and efficiently, cleaned up after himself (bless him!), was pro-active (eg offered to change lightbulbs), and fixed everything. He was also very friendly and I felt completely comfortable having him in my apartment. I will certainly be using them again.
