We are looking for a reliable handyman in SE1 to do a bunch of odd jobs - hanging cupboard doors, water blasting patios, new handles on kitchen units etc at our properties in the area. If anyone has any recommendations we would really appreciate it! Thanks

Hi Bron-1,

I'm hoping you've managed to get your 'To-Do' list sorted. Please do bear us in mind for next time.

We're a local handyman service for Southwark and we tackle Carpentry, Electrical, Plumbing, Painting and Decorating plus quite a few other things too.

Our website is where you can see a full list of what we do.

Best wishes,

Not SE1, but SE16, Rob, 07950 190530, is very good and prompt.
If he says he'll be there at 10.00, he's there at 10.00.
Pricewise very good too, he put a light fitting back up for me that was proving difficult because the plasterers who did the ceiling slapped the plaster on thick, and I couldn't get the fitting into the space they left.
He also put my new taps in on the bath and hand basin, in double quick time.
While doing that job he discovered that one joint had been slowly leaking, it was smothered in plumber's mait from its original fitting.
He said, "I've got one indoors, I'll go fetch it, and fit it, no additional charge."

I would also recommend Rob.

I posted asking for a handyman some time ago, and Rob was the first to respond.

He did a number of small jobs for me and he's really good.

Reasonable rates, arrives on time and excellent quality of work.

I'll be using his services again soon!

Same here! Used Rob to fit an electronic cat flap, quite a tricky job that involved some serious looking drills, and he did it in half the time I thought he would, and could easily have charged me double, but didn't. Excellent quality of work. Now please no one else recommend him otherwise he'll be too busy :-)

If this is the same rob I had contacted (he had advertised on here from time to time), unfortunately I could not recommend. Kept changing appointment time, in the end cancelled the job completely. Real chip on shoulder...was actually very disheartened by the experience.

I would echo most on here with a shout out for Rob. Late last year he came by and has done a few jobs for myself - toilet cistern, blinds, lights, shower replacement and so far so good. Very reliable and upfront, not usual characteristics from the trade.

Wanted to add to this thread as we decided to use Steven from Southwark Handyman Services after finding him on here and then checking out his website and Facebook page.
He came out today to fix our bathroom cabinet door. He was quick to respond and very friendly. Trustworthy and had fair pricing. Seemed very knowledgable as he explained everything to us.
We will continue to use him as it's important we feel safe with who we use. We feel very safe with Steven and his high quality of work.
