I recently engaged Angelo and Wayne on the basis of this forum's recommendations and wanted to post a couple of reviews.
Electrician - Angelo Avella (07850 767 283, firstname.lastname@example.org)
Angelo was engaged to move around my storage heating and that involved chasing wiring into the walls and the ceiling. Angelo did a safe and efficient job. The chasing involved the barest minimum of wall damage and his mate also touched it up (not to decorative standards but the finishing is not an eye sore).
Going by the quality of service, the hours spent and the end product, I think he is fantastic value for money.
Angelo is also very friendly, knowledgeable and happy to be available if there are any follow-up questions.
Plumber - Wayne Barber (07883 3434 08)
Wayne did lots of small jobs for me which included changing the basin in the bathroom.
After the initial visit to assess the scope of the work, Wayne was responsive throughout. He helped shop for the right fittings (by email), was OK with picking a convenient day for the job and on the day did a clean and efficient job. He also sorted out some legacy issues in the process.
His initial quote seemed high but I am glad that, based on all the recommendations, I went with him as that reflects in the quality of the work.
Handyman - Yemi on task rabbit
If you guys use Taskrabbit for smaller handyman tasks, then I recommend Yemi. He helped put together some Ikea flat packs and some wall fixtures. He's got a fantastic attitude and does a really good job without shortcuts.
