High Quality and Up-Front About The Costs

Julie Pointer

Friendly & Reliable

“I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Neil.  You always get a prompt response and quality workmanship.  We had a service plan with a national company that covered maintenance etc but we quickly cancelled that and now rely on Neil.”

Already Planning To Book Him Again

“Neil re-painted two rooms for us and fitted a fireplace and an outside tap.  His work was clean and tidy and quick.  The work actually took less time than originally quoted for but Neil was honest and let me know.  He did a great job and I already plan to book Neil for more work in the summer!”

Annie Simmonds

No Hesitation In Recommending Neil

“Neil has recently done more work for us.  This time a kitchen makeover, using the existing cabinets and making adjustments to accommodate new and different appliances.  It’s a small kitchen with only a few centimetres to manoeuvre in any direction so it was a tricky job.  He discussed the problems with us to find out what we wanted and then found solutions.   He’s definitely a “where there’s a will there’s a way” man.  But as always this does not compromise his standards.  It has to be done right and he won’t stop until he’s satisfied.  Once again we’ve no hesitation in recommending him.”

Gerry & Anne Carter

I’ve Found The One!

“Every other tradesman I’ve used before were simply not up to scratch but thankfully my search is over – I’ve found THE ONE!!  I like everything about Neil – he is professional, friendly, very reliable, has high standards and gets the job done right.  I had quite a few repairs and decorating jobs waiting to be done which I didn’t have time to complete.  Neil sorted everything for me in two days.  The service from start to finish was excellent and couldn’t be faulted.  He even left my house cleaner than when he started and one year on and the work still looks neat & professional!  Neil only quotes for work that really needs doing and there’s no haggling or hidden extras.  I would not hesitate to call him again for any job in my home, large or small and I recommend him to everyone because once you use Neil The Handyman you’ll never need to search for a tradesman again!”

Chris & Steve Fellows

We Felt Confident From The Initial Visit

“Neil recently completed our new bathroom.  From our basic ideas to combine an en-suite and bathroom into one ‘Jack and Jill’ bathroom, he gutted the old rooms and completely refitted the new.  We were really impressed by Neil’s work.  He consulted us regularly to ensure our wishes were complied with.  He worked steadily every day, stripping out the old equipment, removing a wall, plastering the ceiling, tiling the walls and floor, fitting the new equipment and plumbing it in.  We are really pleased with the result and would recommend Neil to anyone.”

Paul and Hilary Drinkwater

Work Is Always Completed Right First Time

Good Value For Money

“Excellent workmanship and very reliable and friendly.  Neil made very useful suggestions for making the best use of the small space we had for a washbasin/vanity unit in a bedroom so we ended up with something better than we had imagined.  It’s made a huge improvement to our bedroom and has turned an underused alcove into a really attractive but useful area.  We highly recommend Neil.”
