Why do I need – I’m experienced at what I do. What benefits are there to me to have you as a ‘middleman’?
If you’re working full-time already, responding to requests for your freelancing services is going to be difficult – without potentially letting down your current employer. Communicating with clients can be draining too. Collecting payment for your services, potentially even more. Finding new clients may also be a challenge, as many will want to meet face-to-face during regular business hours. Fixlers takes care of all that; we have built a solid reputation for excellence in customer service. We have invested in our website and targeted advertising, plus we have a great team of backroom support staff. While you have strong talents and good hands to deliver the best service possible, setting up on your own as a freelancer can be overwhelming.
As a Fixlers registered technician, we will strive to give you access to as many freelancing opportunities as you can take on, without you needing to compromise your own day job and personal commitments. Once you have signed up, you’ll be able to take advantage of the infrastructure we have in place. We will keep the jobs coming, and keep you working!

If we haven’t already answered a query that you may have, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us via or 888-683-8483.
