At Atlanta Property Matters, we read the instructions.
When I have something to assemble, my first priority is to find the instructions. If they aren’t in the box, I’ll dig them up online with my smart phone, even if it’s something I’ve put together many times before.
Here’s why. I learned years ago, that missing an important step during an assembly can waste a lot of time. Wasting time is not what my clients hire me for. Something else to also keep in mind, is that manufacturers make can subtle changes to their products that can also cost time if I’m putting something together from memory. Therefore I do not rely on memory for these tasks and it makes me a more efficient handyman overall.
Call us if you’ve never seen a handyman read the instructions before attempting to put something together.
