Please get in contact for my competitive prices


Hourly Rate.  For short term work such as putting up shelves and hanging some pictures, I charge by the hour.  For small jobs I will give you a free and accurate quote over the phone and will expect payment on the same day in Cash or Cheque with an approved bankers card. I will provide a receipt and all receipts for any materials/hardware.

Day rate. I  have a day rate  that can save you money if book me for the whole day of 7 hours. During a day I am able to get a wide variety of jobs done in and outside the house. Payment for a full days work must be made at the end of the job in Cash or Cheque. I will provide a receipt and all receipts for any materials/hardware.

Longer Term Work Rate. If you require longer term work then I will come and meet with you for a no obligation quote. We can then talk through ideas and what you would like. I will then provide you with a formal quotation with a breakdown of costs and dates that I can complete the work. Once you sign this and return it to me, this confirms your booking and forms a formal agreement between us both. This may be done via a confirmation email or by post. Payment may be staggered for larger jobs so that I can purchase materials and the full amount will be payable by cash or cheque 7 days after the job is completed. 

Terms and Conditions:

1) Prices quoted are dependent on ‘normal’ circumstances, if unforeseen issues require additional work to be carried out then I reserve the right to charge for additional labour as required. Customers will always be consulted before any additional work takes place.

2) I reserve the right to request a deposit of up to 50% of the contract price at the start of work, this will be particularly relevant when it is required to purchase materials on behalf of the customer.

3) Payment will be due at the end of the work. Please pay by cash or cheque. Bacs payment is by prior arrangement only.

4) I will always clear and tidy the work area on completion, however removal of any rubbish will incur additional charges.

5) Cancellation:

I charge the full fee for jobs which are cancelled with less than 24 hours notice. This applies to any type or length of work.

If 5 working days notice is given for jobs that are a day or less no fee will be charged.

For work which is more than a day, 50% of the total work fee will be charged unless 10 working days notice is given.

This is to ensure I can run my business fairly and plan ahead as a sole trader.

Materials. The option to use reclaimed wood and recycled materials. Materials that are required for any work that I do not have in stock will have to be sourced and purchased before work can commence. This time is chargeable and will be included in the final bill along with a breakdown of materials.

Enhanced Criminal Records Check. 
Peace of mind. I have a clear enchanced Criminal Records Bureau Check which states I have no criminal convictions of any type.
