THE Handyperson Service continues to be of great service to elderly and disabled tenants and residents across North Glasgow and its latest fan is Mrs Quinn of Morrin Path, Springburn.
Mrs Quinn had several jobs for our skilled handy person to carry out including hanging pictures and clocks and one job she was really delighted with was the installation of a fireplace which she had brought with her from her previous address.
She said: “I didn’t want to throw it out so I was delighted when Andy was able to fit it for me. The service is great, no mess, no fuss and all my little jobs were completed within an hour.”
The Handyperson service is free but customers will have to pay for and provide their own materials and fittings/fixtures although the
Handy Person will carry tools and small items such as screws and nails to assist.
Each appointment lasts 1 hour (this doesn’t mean just one job e.g. in 1 hour a curtain pole can be put up, a light bulb replaced and a cupboard door hinge adjusted).
If a request qualifies for the Handyperson service a morning or afternoon appointment will be booked. If a request doesn’t qualify for the Handyperson service, and where appropriate, it will be logged as a repair.
Elderly and disabled customers of ng homes can order a job by calling 0141 560 6000 or 0141 336 1300 and choosing option 1 for the Repairs Team.
