Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Who is a Handyman?
A Handyman is a tradesman that has a wide knowledge of trades and skills that are required to complete most jobs around the house or office. A Handyman will happily take on any jobs that would be too small or too complicated for any other tradesman. The advantage you get by calling a handyman is that he can complete various jobs that would require different trades at the same time and the job will be looked at, estimated and completed the same week, even the same day.
How long does it take for you to give me a quote?
I guarantee to give you a quote within 48hours. For smaller jobs I can very often give an estimate on the spot
Are you insured?
Yes, I have a £5m Public Liability Insurance in place
Do you subcontract any of your work?
I never subcontract any of my work. It’s always done by myself so you can stay assured that you have a trustworthy and reliable person on hand. If there is a job I can’t take on I will recommend a reliable tradesperson
What are your hours of business?
The business hours are Mon – Fri 9:00 – 18:00. Some urgent jobs may be done on a Saturday after a prior arrangement
What area do you cover?
I cover all of Edinburgh and a 20 mile radius around the city
Are you a “Green” and Ethical Tradesman?
My approach to anything I do is always “green”. Whether it’s recycling the materials I use, reducing the waste or driving a Euro6 van, I always think how can I reduce my footprint. Being ethical is also very important to me that’s why I bank with Triodos, which is the most ethical bank in the UK. I also look at my suppliers and always choose ethical and sustainable ones. This also provides a good image to all of my clients that I work for.
Can you re-plumb and re-wire my house?
To do these jobs you will need a fully qualified plumber which is Corgi registered and an electrician which is NIC registered. I specialise in joinery but will happily take on any basic electrical or plumbing jobs
What does the hourly rate include?
The hourly rate is a labour only rate. The fee doesn’t include any parking charges (if applicable), parts or materials.
