Just wanted to write another shout out for brilliant Colin the Handyman - he came to do some work for me on Friday and he was just fantastic. Within a minute of walking into my house he had taken apart my faulty fire alarm to fix (it had just broken that morning and not what he was actually there to do) and this just totally sums him up - totally old school hard working mentality - professional, on time and nothing was too much trouble! I had asked him to put a load of flat pack Ikea together furniture for me - not the most exciting job to do in the hottest weather ever and he just totally cracked on.. in five hours he managed to build four book cases, two massive sofas, a large glass coffee table, smaller side table, an arm chair, a racking unit for my larder - he also broke down all the cardboard and managed to get the waste collected for me (along with my old sofa). Totally exceeded my expectations!
Would 110% recommend Colin for all your handyman need - hardworking, trustworthy and just a thoroughly good bloke! His number is tel:07754691541

Colin has done some work again for me today and I would totally recommend him. He is always very reliable and very pleasant.

Just wanted to add a glowing endorsement of Colin's superb handyman services here.
We had a number of small-ish jobs needing doing and were looking for someone who could fill the void when a great man we'd used over many years sadly passed away.
After searching the forum, we messaged two or three handymen we'd found recommended on here: only Colin replied promptly with his rates and offering times he could do.
We needed some flat-pack furniture assembling, a glass bathroom shelf re-fixing and a couple of loose skirting boards made good.
Colin did it all within an hour for a very reasonable fee.
He was reliable, punctual and very easy to deal with: texting him is the best approach given how busy he is 07754 691 541.

Another recommendation for Colin. He came to fix our fences - quick, competitive quote, friendly and done two days later. Thanks Colin. Highly recommended.

I'd like to add another recommendation for Colin. He came on Friday and did a splendid job of jet washing and cleaning my patio. Colin was polite and friendly and he was very thorough in his work. Highly recommended!

I would also like to recommend Colin as a handyman. Colin came to help me with some odd jobs in my flat and I found him to be a very nice and friendly person who is hardworking, resourceful and reliable. He was also quick to respond to text messages and reasonably priced. I was very happy with the work he did and would definitely use him again.

Colin has done 3 fantastic jobs for me ranging from hanging curtain poles, installing a cat flap and building a shed. All reasonably priced too.

Professional service and a genuinely nice chap.


Cheers Colin

Colin has just painted my hallway and the finished result is great. I'll be using him again to put up blinds. Recommended.

Another recommendation for Colin.

Colin has just completed painting my whole one bedroom flat to a very high standard, this has included the entrance hallway, living room, bedroom, kitchen - all walls ceiling and woodwork. He also undertook new kitchen tiling and is coming back in the new year to do more bathroom tiling and painting once we plumb in a new shower.

Thank you Colin - excellent work.

Hi Everyone - and Colin.

New to the forum.

I'm trying to track down Colin the handyman who used to work with Mark - maybe 10 years ago.
He did great work for us in the garden and in the house, but have lost his contact details.
Is this the same Colin? Hope so.

Hi all
Recommending Colin the local handy man.
He just fixed my door handle and has also tiled my whole kitchen very well.
If you need anything done around the house, give him a call.
