Every home has a selection of tasks that need doing but are getting put off due to time constraints or lack of expertise. You might have accumulated a couple of framed prints or decided that an extra shelf needs to be added to a room but aren’t quite sure how to make it happen. A handyman is the right person to help you accomplish all these tasks, plus many more.  

What jobs can a handyman do? 

  • Assembling flat-pack furniture

  • Hanging shelves, pictures, mirrors, TVs on a wall 

  • Mowing the lawn

  • Small paint jobs  

  • Cleaning driveways 

  • Odd jobs around the home you can’t do yourself
