In truth it is completely academic whether the comments above are true or just made up.  Without a means to authenticate these claims they will not offer much reassurance to you - a valued potential customer who has never used us before.

Thus, what can we do to offer you some level of reassurance: -

  • We don’t ask for any money until the job has been completed to YOUR satisfaction.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why have I not heard of you before?
Lots of people ask this!  We don't advertise much - a big proportion of our business comes through referrals from satisfied customers, and we like it that way.  It means we can spend more time focusing on delivering great service, and less time on deciding where we should advertise.  Please bear this in mind when you use us - the success of our business relies on word-of-mouth, so do pass on the word if you are happy with our service.

How much does your service cost?
£20 per/hr up to four hours, plus a £0.00 - £20.00 callout (depending on price location zone and job duration - call to check).  Jobs longer than four hours switch to a day rate (£150.00 per day).

Does this include materials?
No - materials are extra.  Most customers use us purely as a labour service, but we are happy to fetch particular parts for you if needed.

Do your handymen come with all the right tools?
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 and so forth).

Do you do free estimates?
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.

Are you insured?
Yes, we carry £1m of public liability insurance.

How quickly can you come out?
Subject to staff availability in some cases right away.  However, 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.

Do you offer a 24hr service?
No - Usual hours are 09.00 - 17.00hrs Monday to Friday.  We can do jobs in the evening and weekends by arangement.

How do you know that the people you use are reliable?
Unlike many firms in the building and maintenance industry, all our tradesmen work for us on a regular, we don’t just subcontract jobs out to other people.  We only work with those who are: skilled in the sort of work we take on; who are polite and well presented; who are friendly and understand the importance of customer service.  Bear in mind, though, that all our specialist tradesmen are just that: specialists.  There may be some jobs that we can’t tackle, in which case we will always tell you and try and recommend a suitable specialist to use instead of our own.

Will I have to wait in all day for your handyman to show up?
No - All our tradesmen will phone you prior to arrival, normally the day before and arrange a time they aim to arrive, which is mutually convenient.  We are nearly always right 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.

How big a job can you take on?
Providing we have the necessary skills to do the job, there is really no limit.

What areas do you cover?
Primarily Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire, however we are willing to travel further a field if required, for jobs, which are financially viable.

How can I pay?
We accept cash or cheque.

Do you do office work?
Yes, certainly.  Many companies use us to take care of their everyday maintenance requirements.  There is no formal account-opening procedure, just call us on 07981-655379, we will send someone round and then bill you afterwards.  All we ask is that invoices are paid within 7 days.

If you require a regular visit (e.g. once a month) then we can set that up too, and we would be able to offer you a big discount off our usual rates.  Please call 07981-655379 to discuss your requirements with one of our staff.
