    Question is there someone who can come out and change light bulbs?

    i have a blown light bulb and i am too short to reach it even with standing on the bed in the room. do people come out and change them for a small price or do i just have to wait it out until my dad comes and changes it when he is in brissy next?

    Talk to your real estate - mine sends a handyman out for free to change the ones in the bathroom that I can't get to.

    Either that or have you got a neighbour or friend you can ask.

    You could hire a handyman I suppose but it could cost anywhere from $20 - $90 just to call him out.

    There's an extension handle thing you can buy to help change high bulbs. They're a few dollars at Bunnings. That might be a better/cheaper option! I'm a shorty too.

    you can buy light globe changers that reach up high... i think they are from bunnings as well??

    my hubby made one himself with a broom stick and put an attachment on the end - I think he used a stubby holder and also made one out of a 1.25litlre coke bottel - cut the bottom off and cut slits in the side and then tapes the top back together ?? sorry prod doesn't make much sense....but they work a treat...

    avoid calling someone out - my DH does maintenance and charges $65 min call out fee...

    maybe call the council - they used to send ppl out for free to my nanas...
