What Is a Good Price for a Handyman to Install a Toilet?

As of 2014, Homewyse reports that the cost of having a toilet installed averages from $113 to $118 for 2.2 hours of labor. Wages for a handyman fall at the low end of the range as opposed to those for licensed, bonded and insured plumbers, who charge more for labor.

These estimates don't include the cost of the toilet itself or materials such as connectors, fittings and hardware. Total cost for a new toilet, installation and materials averages from $267 to $339. Additional costs may include state and local sales tax on materials and supplies or permits and inspection fees required by local building departments for the overall project. Complex jobs or tight deadlines may raise the cost.
