Do you have “jobs” that need doing at home or at work?  The kind that always seem to get relegated to the bottom of the pile?


Let’s face it, many of us just don’t have the time, skills or tools to get certain DIY or odd jobs done. If that sounds familiar and has reminded you that you have a ‘to do’ list gathering dust somewhere, it could be time to call 0800 HANDYMAN.

Offering a fast, reliable, efficient and professional handyman service – and a commitment to doing so at a reasonable price – 0800 HANDYMAN is the brainchild of a local East Sheen family.

Launched as a mobile handyman service in 2001 with a fleet of distinctive scooters and vans, 0800 HANDYMAN opened the doors of their first ever shop here in the heart of East Sheen in December 2012.smilenew

“We’re always looking to innovate and improve and felt that a high street presence would a really positive thing,” says manager, George Oatham. “It’s convenient for local people to pop in to discuss their needs, get quotes and find out what we offer. We also run our call centre from here, employing five staff in the shop and office.”

0800 HANDYMAN was set up to bring together a team of highly skilled handymen and to provide a high service standard, however large or small the job.

“Our research showed how important it is to people to know that they are going to get a reliable handyman who will appear at the designated time – one that suits the client – and to have a clear upfront understanding of the charges,” says George.

That’s why the company’s handymen are all CRB checked and arrive in an identifiable vehicle and uniform. Before that, however, you will have booked your job at a time that suits you and that team will have helped you estimate how long the job might take and cost.

vannnewThere are no secrets in terms of costs. The first half hour is £40 and each subsequent half hour is charged at £20 (all prices exclude VAT). However, for larger jobs, 0800 HANDYMAN offers half day and day rates that are more economical.

They also offer a range of fixed price services, such as changing a tap, hanging LCD screens and replacing extractor fans. Or, if you prefer to do certain jobs yourself there is a variety of equipment available for hire, including power washers and steamers, too.

“Clients particularly appreciate the fact that there is no call out charge and that we charge by the half hour – it prevents that unhappy feeling we all get of paying for an hour’s labour when a job has only taken 20 minutes,” says George. “On top of that, we offer a no quibble satisfaction guarantee and a commitment to making sure our clients are happy with each job”

The range of services on offer is extensive, whether you are a homeowner, landlord or business owner and whether you need help with a small job, a refurbishment project or checking the safety of electrical appliances.

0800 HANDYMAN really can provide a MAN FOR ALL REASONS: from general tasks such as cleaning windows or hanging pictures to plumbing and drain cleaning, electrical and decorating works, testing electrical equipment and more.  All you need do is ask and they’ll provide you with the right man for the job.

0800 HANDYMAN is offering ESV residents 10% off their first appointment. Simply quote ESVOFFER when you book.

0800 HANDYMAN (East Sheen) have been a wonderful help to me when I needed prompt and efficient repair or maintenance in our house and garden. They respond quickly with the right kind of expertise, quote costs accurately, and carry out the work reliably and without fuss. I would use them again without hesitation. Sir JW, Richmond

Your employee carried out the work efficiently and courteously and went out of his way to make sure I was satisfied with the completed job. I had received a quote from another source for the

same work, but as your company only charges for the time actually taken to carry out the necessary repair you were, of course, far better value. I have already recommended you to many of my friends. Mrs. PB, East Sheen
