The Handy Squad

Your local handyman

The Handy Squad is the premier Handyman Service in London. We have been helping Londoners with their home and office repairs since 2005. Our regular hours are 8am to 6pm on weekdays, but we can also come out to you earlier in the morning, later in the evening and at the weekends. Our handymen are multi-skilled, punctual, polite, carry I.D. and will always leave your property tidy. If you are looking for the best handyman service London has to offer then look no further than The Handy Squad.

Unlike many of our competitors, we have been serving Londoners for over a decade and have more happy customers than ever. We always believe that you get what you pay for. With The Handy Squad, you can have peace of mind that we will turn up on time, do the job properly and clean up after ourselves. To us, trust and a good reputation can take years to build, but can so quickly become damaged. That is why we work so hard every day to ensure that each and every customer is delighted with the Handy Squad experience and will want to tell their friends about us.

Our pricing is clear and transparent. You can see our charges both excluding and including VAT. While paying VAT always hurts, unpleasant surprises are worse!

I was charged for trying

I have a floating shelf in the bathroom that has dropped by 1 inch, they didn’t manage to fix the problem in securing the shelf, but still charged me the full 30 min fee of £51. When I the day after emailed enquiring why I was charged for a service that they didn’t fulfil the reply I received back was, and I quote “So if you read what you said in the first email, you stated ******* tried fixing the shelf for 30 mins? This is why we are charging 30 mins”. Not only did I not receive a single apology, but a rude and dismissive email back. In fact the person over email had the audacity to say it was not the “right shelf for that type of wall”. I am not a professional handyman, which is why I booked them, and if the shelf cannot be repaired I understand that, what I don’t understand is how they can charge for trying. The consumer act of 2015 clearly states “service should be performed with reasonable care and skill” and the following remedies are statuary rights should a contract not be met “right to repeat performance” and “right to price reduction” Not only was I not offered any of the above, in fact they simply chose to ignore my last email when I asked “So you charge for trying?” Worst customer service I have come across in a very long time.

Great service, fair price, quick turnaround

I had a problem with a broken plug and socket that needed immediate attention. The admin team was excellent at quickly finding me an eletrician who came in to do the job the same day, at a fair price for the turnaround and service. Very nice and friendly team as well, highly recommend.
