Who we are

The Handy Guys is a leading handyman service covering South Manchester and Cheshire. Each of our professional handymen is fully equipped to deal with a wide range of repairs and improvements around the home or office – from hanging a picture to tiling a bathroom.

The Handy Guys, established early in 2009, was borne out of frustration in trying to find reliable and trustworthy tradespeople that could be counted on for even the smallest job for which you don't want to pay over the odds or wait in all day to get done.

Our handyman team is supported by a state of the art IT scheduling system, which enables us to fit around your schedule with fixed appointment times from as little as 30 minutes. Being punctual is just one part of our strict code of conduct that governs everything we do for our customers - see more details below.


You might be lucky and all your previous dealings with tradesman have been entirely positive. However for most of us the experience generally goes something like this:

  • We ask friends for a recommendation for a 'good' tradesman
  • We contact the tradesman and he eventually gets round to estimating the work
  • We chase the tradesman for the estimate and eventually reach agreement
  • After a number of false starts and wasted time waiting in, the work commences
  • The work eventually completes after lots of snagging and the final invoice is higher than the estimate due to 'unforeseen' additional work.

If, like us, you think that there has to be a better way to get those small jobs done around your home or workplace then you will understand why we set up The Handy Guys. We believe that good customer service is a right not a privilege. We promise to always respect you, your property and your time. Our pricing is totally flexible and transparent and all our workmanship is backed by a no quibble guarantee. See our customer feedback to hear reports from our many satisfied customers. Go ahead, see for yourself - we are currently offering a £10 discount for all new customers.
