We are quite handy

Chris Gilbey, owner of the handyman service

Hello, my name isn’t Bob, it’s Chris and I started Bits Bobs and Odd Jobs 10 years ago because I really enjoyed fixing things and wanted to create a service that caters for getting the small jobs done with excellent customer service. A few years later, it’s hard to believe how things have grown.

We now have a team of handpicked handymen directly employed by us so you can be sure you are getting a trusted and professional team member who adheres to our strong customer service and standards of work. We specialize in getting those little jobs done that builders and other companies won’t touch. If you have a list of jobs you have been meaning to get round to Bits Bobs and Odd Jobs are the perfect solution, give our office a ring on 01483905070 or email us at info@bboj.co.uk and book us in!

  • “Bits Bobs and Odd Jobs did a fantastic job on some tiling work in my bathroom. They were exceptionally clean, quick and did exactly as I asked. The staff are all very friendly too. I would thoroughly recommend them.”

    London Customer

  • “Really happy with the work. Workman turned up 10 minutes early with the list I had previously provided by email of the jobs I wanted done, and all the tools and material required for the job. He was polite and efficient and all was done within the two hours I was quoted. I’d use them again.”

We can keep track of the time taken for each job and a history of our visits and what we did, not only that but once our team member has finished each individual task they can take pictures and upload to our system, we can then email you a job report with pictures attached to help you manage maintenance from a distance.
Yes we would be delighted to advise. Please ring our office and talk through the works you require, if you need to please send us pictures this can really help us to gauge what time you would need and what materials may be required. Should we feel that the works are slightly larger and may take over a day or for example you would like your property redecorated we would need to arrange a site visit to give an accurate quotation

Should the works take longer due to unforeseen circumstances or you have more works you would like doing we will try our upmost to extend the time of the handyman’s visit. If this is not possible we will advise on availably and book you in as early as possible.
If you have the materials that is great, if not our team member can happily pop out to the a local merchant close to you and get what is needed. We will try our best to come prepared but sometimes this is not possible so will need to either return or pop out!
