How the service works


Before support commences, one of our friendly Handymen will visit you in your home to discuss the service and to understand your requirements. Once it has been agreed that our service is right for you, we will book a one off, or ongoing appointment with your allocated Handyman at a set day and time who will support you as per your needs.

All of our Handymen each have excellent references and have been checked through the Disclosure and Barring Service. We will regularly monitor the work carried out to ensure that you are happy with our service.
