We all used to know a handy man or as my mum used to call it ' a little man who does!'
But they do seem to be a dying breed - the modern generation in my age group (50+) is neither equippped nor skilled to do anything more serious than changing a plug. Of course we all know someone who has 'all the gear but no idea' but essentially, most of us are pretty helpless when it comes to performaing so called DIY tasks around the home.
So... enter a new breed of handyman ... These guys are not just handymen, they are skilled at plumbing, electrics, joinery and general building work - the good news is that they tend to work on much reasonable rates than the traditional tradespeople and of course often when a job requires at least two skills, it can all be done by one person - far more quickly and at a much lower price.
0800 Handyman is a nationwide franchise, their operatives are fully trained in most aspects and they are properly checked by the police with regards to working in private houses.
Call out fees are really reasonable - if you have a leaking tap or radiator, or need some flooring laid - why not give 0800 Handyman a call - 0800 Handyman is highly recommmended on thebestofguildford.
