THE HANDIWORX STORY
Darin Benseman - Head Handyman
Ever since I can remember, being creative with wood and honing my skills in the art of craftsmanship has been ingrained in my psyche. Whether it be creating something from scratch, restoring something that has become unusable or renovating something to become better than it was before.
With years in corporate roles where I constantly needed to be a ‘solutions architect’, coupled with 15 years in the building industry perfecting my trade, and an ever so slight lean towards perfection, I knew that one day it was inevitable that I would deliver these skill sets to clients of my own.
Most of us had a chuckle or were reminded of our healthy trans Tasman rivalry with this humorous playground TV add: “what are you doing this weekend”, “putting up a retaining wall”, “doing it yourself?”, “nah I’m going to get some bloke in”, “ahh come on mate, do it yourself”, “she’s pretty big job”, “you be right”. “Hey Jonesy, give us a hand this Saturday”. Well think of me as “That Bloke” .
Being a tradesman is deep seated and in the blood, and I take pride in my workmanship and industry experience to provide peace of mind that it will be right.
When we created Handiworx it was not just about providing a raft of property improvement ideas and handyman services in one handy place, it was about working with our clients to deliver what they actually needed and to understand how they live in their homes to provide the best option.
To become a source of expertise, craftsmanship and artistry requires a simple ethos.
‘Treat everything you work on like it’s your own’
"I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Darin to my friends or clients. His level of craftsmanship & attention to detail is superb. He is efficient, timely and polite. And to top it all off his costs are extremely reasonable. I will be using him again in the future" - D. Searle
Darin has built two awesome new decks for our properties over the years and nothing was ever an issue. Not only does he build a superior product but he took the time to work out the best type of deck to suit what we needed.
