We operate a low-cost service for householders in these difficult times, and think you will find our charges to be very fair. There is a sliding scale of charges, so the longer you book, the cheaper per hour.

Please call if you need more information or to get a rough estimate for a particular job.

For all handyman jobs carried out in private dwellings for the householder during normal working hours (9am-6:30pm, Mondays to Fridays), the first 30 minutes costs 15 or the first hour costs 23. After that, we charge decreasing rates per hour as shown below: a whole day works out at 15/hour. These terms are for cash/cheque payment on completion; if you wish to be invoiced, you will be charged at the commercial rate of 25/hour. All materials and fixings supplied are charged at cost.

We reserve the right to specify a minimum 1 hour appointment for visits outside the Uplyme/Lyme Regis area, unless these can be combined with another job in the same area.

Saturday appointments for working people

We realise that not everyone can manage to take time off work for appointments. So, we offer Saturday daytime appointments, with a minimum charge of 25, and a cost of 12.50 per 30 minutes thereafter.

Out of hours calls

If you need something done outside normal hours (bank holidays, Sundays and evenings), we'll do our best to help, but all calls are subject to a minimum charge of 30 for up to an hour, then 15 per 30 minutes thereafter.

Cancellations / missed appointments

Please cancel an unwanted appointment as soon as you know you will not be able to keep it, and make sure you are in when we arrive for a booked appointment. Otherwise, we waste time and money travelling to your home or property, and let other people down unnecessarily.

Payment terms

We reserve the right to revise these charges at any time. Please ask when you call if you are unsure of our current charges.

Payment by cash or cheque upon completion for domestic customers. See also our terms and conditions for more information.
