No - materials are extra. Most customers use us purely as a labour service, however if you are not sure of what to buy for a specific job, then give us a call first, so that we can advise you, because although we are happy to go and get anything for you, remember we charge by the half hour.
Yes! All our handymen carry a full range of tools to tackle a huge number of different jobs. They also carry a wide selection of small parts (screws, nails, wall plugs, plumbing connections and so forth).
Generally, we can give you a good idea over the telephone of how long a job is likely to take. You can then book someone in, and when they arrive they will confirm or revise the estimate based on what they find at the job. If it is clearly going to take a lot longer than expected, and you decide not to go ahead, we won't charge you anything. If you are happy to go ahead then our handyman will do the job there and then. For larger jobs, like fitting a new bathroom, we would usually make a separate visit first to give you an estimate, free of charge.
We are not really an emergency service - most of the work we do is booked in a couple of days in advance. We can often squeeze jobs in on the same day as they are booked, though, so it is worth calling to check availability.
No - we give specific one hour slots in which we aim to arrive. We are nearly always bang on time, but sometimes (particularly towards the end of the day) we might be a little late. But we will always call you well in advance to let you know our revised estimated arrival time.
The jobs we do generally range from 30 minutes to a day. We sometimes do much larger jobs lasting several days, (e.g. taking care of a long 'snagging' list for a customer that has just had builders in). For anything lasting longer than about 5 days, then we would be happy to offer you a quotation.
Immediately upon Completion, Please remember we do not invoice and wait, we request payment as soon as we are finished.
