How long you need to wait

We aim to help as soon as possible but it is not an emergency service. We can’t guarantee that our contractors can undertake the works straight away, as they might also be working on other projects. We hope that they can contact you within 7 days of your initial enquiry.

If we can help, we will arrange a day and time for our handy person to call between 9am and 4pm.

We can arrange a password on request, to help you identify the handy person when they arrive.
