I would highly recommend Aston, he is reliable, friendly and professional.
We needed to fix lots of old door handles locks and latches that didnít shut and now all the doors close properly and the handles work really well. He was good at explaining what needed to be done and we were very happy with the work.

I would highly recommend Aston. He was precise, professional, efficient, and a pleasure to deal with. We were very happy with the work, and will be using him again.

Aston has been brilliant for household jobs that are beyond our DIY skills. He is punctual and gets the job done quickly. He is also a very nice bloke. He has just put up double, ceiling mounted, aluminium curtain tracks in our bay window. They had to be bent carefully to fit, and cut with precision. Even though Aston had not worked with this type of curtain track before, he did the job very neatly and professionally in less time than I thought it would take. Our new curtains look fantastic.

Thank you forumites for the excellent recommendation. Aston assembled and hung two flat pack kidsí bookcases for me, fixed a heavy mirror to the wall and mended some broken drawers which had been nagging at me for ages. He did everything with very good grace and to a high standard. He is also very nice and was kind to my toddlers. Thanks Aston.

I can also highly recommend Aston. He fixed my TV to the wall, put up some coat hooks and assembled a bed, efficiently and promptly. He was also very friendly. Iím getting him back for some curtain hooks and pictures too!

I'm looking for a Handyman to install some hardboard in my hallway.

I have seen lots of good recommendations for Aston - but no contact information? Just wondering why no one has added any website, number or email?

Another very happy customer. Aston has just given us a new shed felt roof and completed a small woodwork job. He is great to deal with - good communication, quick quote and booked me in swiftly. He did a lovely job and was very friendly and considerate.

Aston has done a number of indoor jobs for us and done them brilliantly. This time we had a badly leaning garden fence which we needed to get repaired quickly and well to avoid it falling into our neighborsí garden. Aston confirmed that he would be able to do the fence repair and that he is experienced at doing it. His solution was to used a concrete post which is sunk into the ground and attached to the leaning post to straighten and secure it. As usual Aston was punctual, efficient and he is a thoroughly nice and reliable guy. The fence is now straight, stable and very secure. Aston is now firmly our go-to person when we need work done that we simply shouldnít tackle ourselves.

Aston kindly came out yesterday to reinforce a fence post and secure a loose kickboard. Very punctual, friendly and professional in challenging times. Very pleased to recommend him.

Another recommendation here for Aston - he came out to fix our leaning fence and did a really great job. He was punctual and polite, I definitely plan to ask him to help out with some more jobs and would highly recommend.

I used Astonís services again today and can highly recommend him. He is a great handyman, efficient, on time and gets the job done at a reasonable price. Highly recommend him. Will be using him again as needed.

Had Aston around again recently to hang several mirrors and a few other odd jobs. Extremely efficient and friendly as always. A pleasure to have in the house and is now our go to guy for any handy work. No hesitation in recommending his services.

No you are not alone. Aston just quoted me £850 to dig up three holes measuring 70cm x 70cm x 100cm deep in concreted ground. Then he changed it to £700 to dig two holes. I was gobsmacked, for unskilled labour really? For comparison I was quoted £250 elsewhere. Thanks but that's a hard pass for me.

Iíd saved up a long list of jobs for Aston and he tackled them all and made a lovely job of everything. Iíve tried other people in the past (and found one of them watching a video of how to put up a blind which didnít exactly fill me with confidence) and wouldnít hesitate to recommend Aston for great quality, being helpful and very neat and tidy.

We have again used Aston to do some varied jobs in our home and have been very pleased with the work. He is cheerful, competent and punctual.

Here is another shout-out for Aston!

I needed quite a bit of trellis put up, which was to be attached to an existing brick wall. Aston took the time to pop around, review what was required and give some advice. He came back the next day and did a perfect job.
Not only is his work to a very high standard, he is also a nice guy to have working around your house/garden, which is important.
I have no hesitation in recommending Aston.

Aston came out yesterday to put up a shelf in my flat which had fallen down due to over loading. He was quick to book, well priced, polite, friendly, professional and tidy. He also didn't rush the job (like others I've booked before) and took his time to tackle drilling in to our 1960s reinforced concrete walls! He was able to supply new brackets and I am confident the shelf will not be falling down again! I will definitely be re booking Aston in the future.

Aston came yesterday to install a new cooker hood and replace some outside lights for me.

This was the second time Iíd used him, heís friendly, turns up on time and extremely professional at what he does.

I would highly recommend him and will definitely be using him again for any future jobs.

Can echo comments above, Aston cane round today and did an amazing job. Lovely guy and did everything we needed really well.

Cannot recommend enough!

We had Aston with us this week. He did a bunch of jobs for us and we couldn't be happier with the results. Aston was friendly and efficient with a great attention to detail - not to mention a big hit with the family. Already planning on having him back again soon.
