About Us

I’m Fred Ferris, the owner of Ferris Handyman Service. I’ve always loved to take things apart and put them back together. My mechanical aptitude led to a sales career in the machine tool industry, where I sold capital equipment to engineers. This profession gave me the income and security I needed to support my young family.

Now that my children are grown and having children of their own, I’ve enjoyed owning and operating my own handyman business. It’s rewarding to give my customers the time and peace of mind they need to take care of their families and careers while I take care of their fix-it needs.

The projects I love most are those where the property owner has a list of items that need attention and calls me in to take care of all of it. But even if you just have one item that’s been nagging you around the house, I’m happy to help. There’s no job too small, and I do every job with great care.

In 2009, I was pleased to be recognized with a Best of Boston Home award in the Small Repairs category. It’s always nice when your work is noticed by others and it’s nice to get good press – my main focus, however, remains the same…for my clients to experience my work as “the best.”

I provide free consultations and estimates and deliver guaranteed, fully insured work. Many of my customers give me keys to their homes to keep so I can take care of things while they’re out. It shows their confidence in my integrity and their trust in my work.

Give us a call today at 617-733-6316 or email me at Fred@FerrisHandyman.com. On the off chance I don’t answer your call, I’ll return it the same day.
