Why don’t you do larger jobs such as fitting kitchens?
I prefer to do jobs that normally take between an hour to a day or two so that I can provide a consistent service to my clients. I specialise in small jobs that do not require expensive specialist tradesmen.
Are you CORGI or NICEIC registered?
No. However I can carry out many basic plumbing and electrical jobs and can advise you if you need to contact a specialist tradesman who I trust and can recommend if you have no one in mind.
What does the hourly rate include?
The hourly rate is a labour-only fee. The price does not include parts or materials which you can supply or which I can source and charge for. (I carry lots of small parts in the vehicle).
Do you round up to the nearest hour?
No. I round to the nearest quarter hour because that's fairer and it helps keep your costs down.
Do you carry many parts?
I carry the most commonly required parts such as screws and wall fixings, etc. If I need to go and get something for your job, I will need to charge for that.
Are you insured?
Yes, I have Public Liability insurance for up to £2m against injury or damages caused as a result of my work. I hope it’s never needed, but it’s there for peace of mind.
Do you give Free Estimates?
Yes, my estimates are free of charge.
Can you come and give me a Free Estimate?
I can usually give a fairly accurate estimate over the phone. When I arrive at the job I will be able to confirm the estimate, and at this point, if the job looks like it will take longer than expected, you can change your mind without being charged. Estimates are free of charge.
What are your hours of business?
I'm available Monday to Friday 8.30 to 6pm. But please feel free to contact me if you require a handyman outside these hours, as I am often able to oblige.
How do your appointments work?
Your time is valuable. After agreeing an appointment time, I take care to arrive within 15 minutes of the agreed time and am rarely late - truly! If I say "I'll be there" - I'll be there!
Who do you do work for?
I do work for Home Owners, Landlords, Residents, Offices, Businesses and Letting Agencies.
How do I pay?
Payment is on completion of the work. I accept payment by cash or cheque.
