FR Review:
Checklist provides a niche service for those high-end DIY-ers and overworked parents who need an extra hand to keep their homes in check. Unique to the handyman business, this company operates through its interactive website, where clients can fill out a Honey-Do List, knocking off months worth of work in one visit. From the estimates to the final bill, everything is organized virtually. Clients enlist Checklist to hang curtains, change bulbs, replace bathroom tiles, build custom furniture and do everything in between. Checklist’s intent is prevention; much like a dentist, it offers routine check-ups to keep homes in top shape.

Before starting Checklist in 2011, owner Liz Picarazzi did marketing for American Express, specifically with small businesses. Being a mom and working full-time left little room for home maintenance, unless she sacrificed family time. Disappointed with other handymen, Picarazzi realized there was a real need for this service and that she was the target customer; the opportunity for business presented itself.

Picarazzi has five handymen and an office staff of two to maintain customer service and manage the website. In addition to the Honey-Do List, Checklist offers a line of chic custom storage bins for trash called Citi Bins as well as a ‘space optimization service’ where hollow walls are turned into closets and shelves. This Brooklyn-based company charges by the hour with a four-hour minimum, or by the day, with a slightly higher rate for projects in Manhattan. Clients admit that they could pay an independent handyman to do similar work for less, however the service and reliability of Checklist are worth every penny.

Representative Client Comments:
“Professional, punctual and reasonably priced.” “I like that I have the option to hire multiple workers at once to get the job done quicker; for me it’s about saving time.” “The same day Checklist came I raved about them on an online parenting forum that reaches 5,000 people. When I find something I love, I share it with everyone.” “The website is so easy and interactive. They always update you with emails and you can even pay your bill online.” “Perfect for parents with full-time jobs and a big house—I want my time for me, not for repairs.” “I have them come once a month. It’s a very manageable expense because I upkeep everything at once rather than repair it whenever it breaks.” “There’s one handyman
on staff who I specifically request... but I won’t tell you his name because I want him for myself!” “We had a bathroom with some imported high-end—though outdated—parts. The plumber basically said we were out of luck. Checklist took the time to source the parts back to France and helped with all the repairs. If there’s a solution they will take the time to find it.” “I tell everyone about Checklist’s premium service.”
