Services - DIY Dave - Newbury Handyman

Using my own tools, I will quote for individual jobs where necessary, although normally I work on a hourly basis as it is quite difficult to quote for various small jobs and this way I can complete multiple tasks while keeping your costs to a minimum.


I have regular clients who write a 'TO DO LIST' of all the niggling odd jobs no matter how small they think they are, book me for a morning, afternoon or full day, we will then go around with the list, a quick discussion and maybe some advice to get a 'back burner idea' another stage further and then i'll just get on with tackling the job list, in order of priority if necessary - you’ll be surprised how quickly I can have most things sorted, repaired or installed!


No day is ever the same - Below is a range of jobs that I have come across and already undertaken.


Just give me a call if you have something not listed - I am always happy to help!

ARE YOU A HANDYPERSON OR WERE YOU BEFORE?....

Have you suffered an illness or incapacity that stops you doing the jobs you used to do?

Would you like an extra pair of hands on your project?

You stay in control of your job and I'll just be your 'mate'!

Sometimes paying someone will save time, energy & money

Even the best fixers have their limitations! - and no one needs to know!... ;)


SELLING OR MOVING HOME IN THE NEWBURY BERKSHIRE AREA?

Cut out the stress of a 1001 things to be done!

Trying to sell - need a 'buyer's eye' makeover?

Moving in or moving out of a property?


Let me help...write a list... I can move boxes into storage or assist with your relocation; freshen up the painting or complete redecorating; maybe replace or freshen up those tired kitchen units, bathroom suite or even the old rickety fence?


Maybe erect your new shelving or assemble flat pack furniture, help to install the washing machine & dishwasher, trim doors to fit over new carpets, hang pictures & mirrors; fit toilet roll holders, towel rails, curtain poles & window blinds; change the locks, fit extra door bolts, door chains, window locks & security lights; I can even arrange a deep clean if necessary before or after your move! - you’ll be surprised how quickly I can have most things sorted, repaired or installed!


THINKING OF MOVING HOME?

~ Declutter 1, have a good old clear out beforehand – is it useful or beautiful? get rid of any unwanted items! Sell them and make some money towards your house move - Send to an Auction House, 2nd-hand furniture dealer, car boot or charity donation.


~ Declutter 2, right down to bare essentials and store your ‘not required at this moment’ items in a garage, attic or rent a lock-up – let any potential buyer see your property and not be distracted by the splendor of your cherished possessions!


Look around your house with a ‘buyers eye’ could they see the potential that YOU saw on YOUR first visit?


Most first initial viewers will be hot on the trail for the perfect home, they will probably know what they want but more often will know what they don't want!


They could also be in a position for a quick sale!


A lot of people will like a house that they don't have to do anything to... Apart from literally putting their own furniture in!



Think!....


'Would they like my colour choice of décor?'...
'This wallpaper was always a bit loud!' - 'oh never mind... the new people would want to decorate anyway!' - or would they?
'I'll have to disguise those awful cat scratches with something?'...
'That door handle is broken, mmm... I'll just remember to stand in front of that when someone is viewing!'...
'Remind myself to have a real go at that limescale stain, it might disguise that dripping tap a bit that I never got around to repairing'
'Aghh! the kids have drawn all over that panel and I hadn't noticed!'...
'Oh yes!.. that flooring is coming adrift... maybe I can put a mat on it to disguise?'..
'Oh and that fencing & gate has been broken for months and the lovely little dog next door keeps coming to visit me, hope the new owner likes dogs?... Need I go on?…
Just write a list, no matter how small the task and give me a call - Book me for a day and you’ll be surprised how quickly I can have most things sorted, repaired and spruced up ready for your new buyer!
