"My wife and I am both in our eighties and there are jobs we used to do ourselves that we can’t easily/ confidently do now i.e. replacing ceiling fluorescent tubes, putting up blinds and curtain rails, picture hanging, minor electrical things, mending cupboard door hinges and so on. I would recommend it to anyone with similar problems and I wish we had known about it sooner. The handymen Keith and Nick could not have been more helpful and the booking arrangements were quick and efficient."
