Default Handyman

Morning half-wits,

Anyone here used a good handyman?

I'm having difficulty hanging curtains and a big, heavy picture....as well as to maybe fill in the holes where I've made attempts.

Thanks in advance.

Isn't it 250 or 350 call out charge unless you're on one of their maintenance contracts? Most of those companies are the same. I needed ceiling lights fitted and used this company http://www.howdra.ae/ who charged 150 AED and hour and were very good.

my SDS drill was 220Dh at Dragonmart for a replica of the Bosch one I had at home that cost 100quid. Given that the average drill runs for no more than about 4 minutes in the hands of a DIYer the Dragonmart ones will be fine.
