We recently moved to York and have used Able Handyman Services (Shaun Dixon), on two occasions. Firstly, to clean and treat our decking, put up shelves, blinds, large pictures and do various small jobs we were unable to do. Secondly, we employed him, to remove the wardrobes in our bedroom, after which he completely redecorated and then installed some bespoke fitted wardrobes which he helped us design. Once again, he did some other smaller ‘niggling’ jobs about the house. We are very impressed by Shaun’s punctuality, professionalism, attention to detail and technical knowledge. Consequently, we have no hesitation in recommending Shaun for all the stated reasons. What’s more, he is a thoroughly pleasant person to deal with!!
We are an accountancy firm and as well as being a PA to a partner and 2 directors I am responsible for the maintenance of the building, we do not have a handyman/facilities manager as such so have been using Shaun since September 2015 for any maintenance/repair jobs as and when they come up. To list a few things of the tasks he has completed for us amongst many:- Repaired a broken bannister on a metal spiral staircase Various removal tasks – shifting furniture around the building Replacing ceiling tiles Sourcing and replacing toilet seats Fixing the broken catches and hinges on a few of our windows Take and down and dispose of some wall fixed cabinets Securing various unstable shelving units and desk dividers with brackets I often find myself with various facilities problems/issues and Shaun is always able to offer me a solution. I can highly recommend Shaun as a reliable, professional and extremely capable handyman with a positive attitude and a sincere determination to get the job done. He always responds to my requests very quickly, arrives when he says he will and completes the work quickly and very satisfactorily.
Shaun did such a fantastic job on our living room walls. The room feels vibrant and inviting again. We use Shaun for all our odd jobs around the house as he does such a great job all the time
We've had a blocked drain for a while now and tried absolutely everything. After calling Shaun, he was polite, punctual and very reassuring that the problem would be solved. He didn't let us down and everything works fine again
We needed a new fence as we decided it was past it's best. Shaun did a wonderful job at a very reasonable price. Would certainly use again in the future.
