We offer the time it takes to prepare larger quotes free of charge. Quotes are prepared by the handyman who visited the property. They will take photographs of the area where work is to be carried out.
Then they will compile a quote that breaks down the work to be carried out and the materials to be used. They will price labour, materials and any other charges separately.
The time it takes to prepare the quotes themselves is free, but there will be a £50 charge towards the cost of the visit to inspect your property. This will be detailed at the bottom of the quote as a credit once work is carried out.
We do not quote on jobs that whilst discussed over the phone clearly require less than one days labour.
We will prepare estimates fully free of charge
All our quotes include a 15% contingency fee to allow for unforeseeable costs due to situations out of sight during the estimate stage. A breakdown of the use of the contingency fee will be provided at completion of the project and will be deducted from ‘on completion’ payment, leaving 5% remaining.
