Stringing Christmas lights and putting out all the holiday décor can be quite the job. So why not let someone else do it? There are countless companies dedicated to the sole task of decking your halls. We’ve highlighted a few here in case you feel like passing the buck this year.

Redbeacon: The Home Depot has partnered with this handy service that matches you with the right professional. Simply submit your request that you need help hanging lights, and the site will give you quotes from trusted handymen. Make sure to click on the price estimator, too.

We Hang Christmas Lights: A design consultant and a staff of professionals will light everything from your roofline to your trees. They have a huge inventory of Christmas lights, extension cords, timers, wreaths, garland and animated displays for purchase or rent. Removal begins Jan. 2 and is included in the price. On their blog, the company listed six things to look for in an installer: free quote, service all season long to address any problems, references and a photo gallery, removal in a timely manner, experience and insurance.

Christmas Décor: For more than 20 years, this company, serving 48 states and Canada, has been making houses glow. They provide a custom proposal with several options — décor and storage included — then hang and dismantle your lights. They even check on your display throughout the season for any problems.

Need help decorating the interior of your home for the holidays? Dreading trimming the tree? Try contacting a local interior designer. Many firms offer decorating services during November and December.

For example, Raw & Repurposed in Outer Banks, N.C., offers a number of packages starting at $25 an hour. They can help with anything from lugging decor down from the attic to setting tables with china and linens.
