Frequently asked questions about picture hanging

Can you hang my picture/mirror/art/sculpture/dryer/fish tank/heated towel rail...?

Yes - I've hung all of those things, and more! Whilst the items may vary, the underlying principles are the same - it must be hung in the correct position, securely, accurately, invisibly & level.

How much does it cost?

Please refer to the "Services and Fees" section. To summarize, the base charge ($105) gets me on-site for one hour, any subsequent hours are charged at $95/hour - by the quarter hour. Additional charges are travel at $0.85/km (the round-trip from our base in Sandringham to you, and back to base) and hardware. If the one-way travel time is greater than 30 minutes, total travelling time will be charged at $95/hour.

Regarding my mirror hanging - it's very big and heavy - can you hang it - in gib?

Yes. Despite the relative fragility of gib, hanging heavy pictures, art and mirrors in this fragile material isn't normally problematic - providing the correct techniques and hardware are employed.

Can you hang pictures in concrete/rock/tiles/brick?

Yes - again, the correct technique and hardware is called for.

I'm not allowed to puncture the walls of my rented property - can you hang with adhesive products?

I'm sorry, but having seen the number of disasters attributable to sticky pads/hooks/velcro, I will not use them to hang pictures.

How far in advance do I need to book The Hangman?

I can generally find time to complete most hanging jobs within a few days of your call - please contact me and we can arrange a convenient time.

Do I have to be there while you complete the picture hanging?

Not unless you want to. I'm more than happy to meet you on-site, then complete the job and lock up when I leave. I'm happy to furnish references to attest to my character and professional nature.
