A good handyman service in London is like gold-dust, if you find a good one hold on to them and treat them nice – pay them quickly, be reasonable – you need them more than they need you. Here are some real-life problems with links to handyman services that will solve them.

PAY MORE, GET IT DONE QUICK
I need someone now, I don’t mind paying a bit more to do the job properly, it just needs to be IMMEDIATELY – the girls’ loo is blocked, the stairs have caved in and there are holes in the wall where mice are coming in.

TIPS

  • Go to one of the bigger companies that guarantee same day service.
  • Ring or book online NOW before anything else bad happens.

CHEAP, WITHIN THE WEEK
I have a few odd jobs that need doing that aren’t urgent like putting up shelves, fixing the lopsided tap in the kitchen, my main focus is keeping costs down but I want to find someone that I like and trust and can get back again and again.

TIPS
This will take you a bit more time upfront but once you’ve done the research that’s it for the end of time… until you move offices, or your handyman retires to Spain. Soz.

  • Ring around at least 5 different handymen in your area.
  • Ask them how experienced they are and what their skills cover.
  • Tell them exactly what you want done and get a quote there and then.
  • Get them to come to the office and meet them in person – set a time to check if they are reliable.
  • Go with the one you like most / that doesn’t show any crack.
  • Pay in cash on the day so they also like you back and will be at your beck and call.

DOES EVERYTHING HANDYMAN, GOOD DAY RATES
We’re moving to a new office in a few weeks, I’m not entirely sure what needs doing (because as usual, no one knows what is going on) but I need someone who is going to give an excellent day rate and will guarantee good service.

TIPS
Make sure you get a daily rate quote beforehand so you don’t get ripped off
