Handyman v specialist trade (contractor)

Handyman v specialist trade (contractor)


If you have ever wondered what the difference is between a “Handyman” and a specialist trade contractor, you are not alone. To help make things a little clearer, we thought we’d give you some information in this blog.

Once upon a time, a Handyman was only seen as a “generalist” and if you wanted something specific done; be that tiling the kitchen, some re-wiring, or a installing a new loo, you would seek a specific contractor.

However, with the Handyman services of a company like Bits, Bobs & Odd Jobs, or BBOJ as our friends often call us, we have got you covered for just about any odd jobs, small or large that you may require doing at home or in the office.

All of our Handymen are fully qualified, carefully chosen and they are capable of carrying out a variety of services from Painting & Decorating, Plumbing, Carpentry, Tiling & Grouting, Electrical & Wiring and much, much more.

As we’re based in Battersea, South West London, we can easily cover and serve most customers within a 10 mile radius, so if you live or work in Wandsworth, Clapham, Notting Hill, Shepherd’s Bush, Kensington, Hammersmith, or any of the surrounding areas, please phone the team and we would be delighted to have a conversation and provide a quote or estimate for the work you require.

One of the main benefits of using a Handyman like BBOJ, especially if you have a number of different jobs around the home or office that would require separate contractors, is that you’ll save yourself a lot of money.

Imagine you had the following jobs at home that were on your “to do” list that you needed help with – a new kitchen worktop fitted, a couple of power points replaced, some tiling in the bathroom for your splash back and some painting and decorating in the dining room.

Having to get a separate carpenter or joiner for the kitchen worktop, an electrician for the new power points, a tiler for the bathroom splash back and a painter and decorater, you’d be up for a considerable bill, once you have added all of their separate invoices. Don’t forget that many tradesmen will also have a minimum charge.

Of course there may be some jobs we are unable to complete if we don’t have the correct experience or license. If that is the case, rest assured, we would let you know.

Using a company like BBOJ for any of your Handyman needs in and around SW London, from Fulham, Putney, Balham, Richmond and any of the surrounding areas already mentioned above, you’ll receive fabulous work that is fully guaranteed and you will also save money.

For your peace of mind, we are also vetted and fully accredited on Which Trusted Trader, as well as Checkatrade, so don’t forget to check out our reviews page, Why BBOJ? on our website.

A Handyman like BBOJ may also be a better option for regular maintenance on your rental property, or as your “go to” company for the bits and bobs that need fixing around the office. We’ll be able to get everything sorted from assembling your new desks, to putting up the picture frames in the front reception and fitting the new down-lights in the team break-out area.

So there you have it, using a Handyman like BBOJ v a Specialist Contractor will usually win hands down. We will not just save you time, but also money.
