Have you ever used a handyman to come and help out with niggily jobs around the house? I hadn’t until last month, but would not even hesitate next time!
It’s been a really rough couple of months for us, and during times of crisis I tend to hide away. This inevitably means that the jobs that need doing start piling up, and before I know it I feel like I’m going to be buried under the never ending to-do list.
Knowing when to outsource
Like many, knowing when to ask for help used to be a problem for me, but these days I’m a bit better at recognising the need to outsource. Why do everything myself when there are others who are more than capable of taking these tasks off my hands for a reasonable price?
When Fantastic Services asked me to become a brand ambassador it was a no brainer. I’ve worked with them a few times now, and have always been super impressed with the quality of their work. They asked me to chose a service to review, and after quickly surveying my house, decided on a handyman.
The job list
Our fridge wasn’t closing properly, and was only staying shut with a 20kg kettle bell in front of it
Our freezer door was hanging off its hinges
The seal around the bath was going black in places
The wood had come away from the sink in the kitchen and was going rotten
The seal had fallen off our main skylight, and was letting in an awful draught
The simplicity of hiring a Fantastic Services handyman
Requesting a handyman couldn’t be easier – you can organise one through the GoFantastic app or via the Fantastic website. They have a great live chat function and their customer service team are second to none, always readily available to answer any questions you might have.
My experience of a Fantastic Handyman
Most of my list was straight forward, the skylight being my main concern, as it’s so high up. The seal fell off last Autumn, and we went the entire Winter with a massive draught coming in through it. At one point a few months ago I looked into buying a telescopic ladder for my husband to reattach the seal himself. The ladder would have cost more than the entire Fantastic bill, so I’m really pleased we didn’t go down that road.
I can’t rave about my experience enough. My handyman was with me for 90 minutes, and completed every job on the list. Not only did he tick the jobs off, he was a true professional the entire time he was inside my house.
He didn’t leave behind a mess either, which is always a concern. Overall I couldn’t be happier with the standard of work, and can’t wait for my next visit from Fantastic!
