Trying to find a reliable and reasonably priced carpenter/handyman in Arlington, Virginia

The office of my tiny non-profit (in Rosslyn) was just renovated/repainted, which meant that a bunch of stuff we had hanging on the walls had to come down. That included a bunch of mounted shelves and a few whiteboards. Now that the renovation is complete, my boss wants us to put the shelves back up. While my colleague and I could do it, for sure, it would take at least a day or so, and we really don't have time to deal with it.
So I'm trying to find a good, and reliable handyman/carpenter type person that could put the shelves and whiteboards up for a reasonable price, while we do our regular jobs. I'm leery of trying to find someone on craigslist, and the few places we cold-called were not interested for something small like that. The original renovation contractor is no longer working in the building, and they were hired by the landlord anyway.
Any suggestions for types of search terms to use, other resources to try, or suggestions for specific companies/people would all be welcome. Thanks!
