50 Handyman Business Names

Updated on February 5, 2017

Some people just have a knack for fixing everything and anything around the house, just by looking at it!

Even just the will to perform any ordinary job around a home is a rare find! We call them handymen, and if you are one of them, then why not make a business out of it?


Starting a Handyman Business

One of the very first things you need to consider are licensing regulations from both your state and county in which you will be performing work. There might be a general handyman license offered, or you may need to secure privileges to perform certain individual tasks such as painting or carpentry. Since the licensing and regulations of this profession is so different from state to state, it’s best to start there.

While in contact with the state, also ask about registering your business with the state’s Division of Corporations, and then again with the county or city, again depending on the requirements.

The good thing about being a handyman is that you can run the business right out of the comfort of your own home. While this is nice and reduces potential business expenses by hundreds or thousands a month, you will still want to have a separate phone line for your business.

The hardest part about starting this kind of business is getting your name out there and building a good, trustworthy reputation. Good marketing and advertising is key in starting out successfully, and once you’ve been in the business for a year, begin looking into accreditations such as through Better Business Bureau. It can help draw in more customers if you have the BBB seal of approval!

With all else considered, you will want to have a really good and attractive business name, which is what I will delve into next!

Handy Tips for Naming Your Business

Handyman Business Names

Handyman business names are actually pretty easy to come up with, but if you need some help, here’s a few tips to stir that brain:

  • Puns: There’s a lot of puns to be had in this industry! Use them to make a clever and memorable name!

  • Your name: Use your name in the business name, especially if you are a sole proprietor. Everyone should know who their trusty handyman is!

  • Area: If you cover a large metropolitan area, use this in your name so those who live a bit farther from you don’t overlook your business in a listing!

  • Start with “a”: We've all seen those companies with “AAA” in the beginning, and this is not them advertising their school grades, but a smart way to be pushed to the tippity top of all listings.
