Oxford Handyman Recommendations

Who would you recommend to fix, improve or build your dwelling?

I contacted Mathieu after reading recommendations here. He was quick to reply to my message and set up a time to come and do the work, arrived punctually and worked his way through my list doing all the work to a high standard and making suggestions where needed. I would not hesitate to recommend Mathieu. His number is 07596 657301.

No job is too small for Russell Hagar. I contacted him because of the recommendations from Daily Info and I was not disappointed. He arrived promptly to fix some cabinet doors, wardrobes and iron railings on my staircase. In record time all was done for a very modest fee. He's an easy person to talk to with a good sense of humour. I highly recommend Russell. (07514 296722)

Handyman in Oxford.

On the basis of recommendations on this site, I contacted Mat / Mathieu to work through a list of fourteen repairs, he came and simply got all the jobs done, as asked, over three hours. I can confirm the reputation he has for being a diligent, a capable and a quick worker. Above all he is a decent person who says what he can do and does what he has said he will do. If you need help with woodworking repairs and fabrication, plumbing repairs or replacement and, non-specialist electrical installation or investigation do call Mat on 07596 657 301. I have already prepared a second list of tasks that include replacing bath fittings, installing a patio-light and repairing automatic fire-door closures for his next visit.

Russell Hagar came to do some jobs for us on Wednesday 27th April. He was excellent and has such a range of skills including basic carpentry and plumbing. We no longer have a wonky tap; he has hung a bathroom cabinet and secured some IKEA units to the wall; he has sorted out downlights in the kitchen , replaced a sill in our doorway and rehung the front door. He was incredibly hard working, cheerful and reasonably priced. I can't recommend him enough,

Mathieu was great, very diligent and very good attention to detail. He came up with solutions and everything he did was well thought through and very neat. He managed to do everything I asked within a short space of time. His number is 07596 657301.

I contacted Russell Hagar on 07514 296722 because of the excellent reviews of his work. All entirely justified! My arthritic fingers were unable to manage a recalcitrant lock. He arrived promptly and did a superb job, re-aligning the stay plate for both lock and catch. Discount for ancient person too! And great sense of humour. Almost look forward to the next crisis.

Russell Hagar did a fantastic job putting up some bookshelves, much better than I'd imagined (and undercharged me!), and also fixed loose doorstep without being asked. Reliable and efficient and kind. Recommended!

Mathieu is a real star. He is a calm and diligent person, who works in a very focused and intelligent manner, and who couldn't be more helpful. He is also very versatile and practical, bringing with him an extensive tool kit. He makes a real effort to meet clients' needs and fit in with their requirements. Mathieu has a pleasant personality and good communication skills. He seems to be able to do everything practical like putting up shelves, constructing flat pack furniture, helping more things and mend things! I recommend him without hesitation - he has helped us out on a few occasions now and is always brilliant. Mathieu is available on: 07596 657301

I needed hinges replacing on my UPVC windows to fix a gap between seal and frame at the bottom. Russell Hager (07514 296722) sourced the hinges and popped over to fit them between other jobs. He stayed for 90 minutes because retro-fitting the hinges meant re-positioning them up to three times to get a good seal. He also replaced a fitting to reinvigorate a sadly sagging double curtain pole, as well as recommending a supplier for a replacement tap cartridge that's eluded me for a month. 10/10 would recommend.

Russell has helped with a variety of tasks, including plumbing work. He is knowledgeable about most areas. I've had him round twice (for two issues) and soon to be a third visit. I will continue using Russell as I gradually repair my house to good working order. I live in Oxford.

Very friendly and reliable. Couldn't ask for more.

Neil Tuckwell - 07921 436945. Very highly recommended. With a background in engineering, his work and ideas are second to none - a very highly skilled individual!

He has extensively refurbished my house. From laying oak flooring throughout, (with an eye for detail in his joinery) to installing my kitchen from a bare brick shell.

He was quick, efficient and did a very good job and even sorted a blocked sink and fixed an unstable towel rail, put up hooks and a notice board that were not part of the initial job, all competitively priced. I will definitely be asking Russell back for more jobs!

I can definitely recommend handyman Russell Hager. He stands out, and I have used many both in the UK, and the US. He is genuinely skilled and happy to explain repair jobs and options in detail.

I shall definitely be booking more work with him.

Sam Trinder - 07507885393

I'd recommend Russell Hager - came on the same day and sorted out some repair jobs well. Neat, thorough, and reasonably priced.

I can recommend Russell Hager, aka Russtick Handyman (07514 296722), as also mentioned on this website. He came by within a few hours of my call to talk through the job we wanted him to do - to put up some heavy shelves up to what we thought was a plaster wall - as he was in the neighbourhood. He did a great job, making sure it was done the way we wanted; and then spent time with a few extra small jobs, as well as giving recommendations for a few other things we hadn't got round too. Very considerate too, taking off his shoes on entering. So overall, great experience, very happy with the job and will definitely ask him again in the future!

I highly recommend Russell Hager 07514 296722. A very pleasant, very respectful and reliable person. He responded to my request on the same day and even on this snowy day, he kept the appointment and was here on time.

I found Russell Hager (aka Russtick Handyman) via Neil Tuckwell, recommended on this site.

Russell was extremely helpful in every respect, very reliable and tidy. He made lots of useful suggestions and even fixed a few things along the way I hadn't even thought about. He even turned his hand to some gardening and did a very tidy job of pruning and weeding the flower beds.

Highly recommended.

I would strongly recommend Neil Tuckwell (07921 436945) for all sorts of handyman jobs. He works to a high standard, and is incredibly accommodating about attending to big or little jobs that build up but could do with an expert touch.

Poli - 07944692423

I saw David's review about Poli, who is based in the Marston area, and contacted him. He immediately called me back and we arranged for him to stop by my house to take a look at the problem. He had a look at our kitchen tap and fitted the new one for us that we had bought. He was extremely efficient, professional, tidy and polite and his rate was much more reasonable than what I had been quoted elsewhere. (He charged us £60 for replacing the tap as it was a standard model.) His number is 07944692423 and his email [email protected]. I would definitely recommend Poli for plumbing jobs and I know he also does gas and boilers. Really a great find in Oxford.

Vitali - 07403339099

Vitali and his guys did a great job redecorating a flat for us.
All done nicely, quickly and for a good price. Very professional and honest too.
Will definitely use again and recommend to others.

We had to do substantial renovations to our house when we first moved in. Neil Tuckwell was recommended to us by a friend and he has been truly excellent. All jobs have been done extremely well, including joinery, plastering, painting, and making good the work of other builders which hadn't been up to scratch. I would highly recommend him. Neil's number is 07921436945.

Paolo 07984 549129 - We have hired Paolo for several jobs, including painting. He is very professional and courteous. We would recommend him to anyone looking for a reliable handyman in Jericho.

I recently used Craig Holloway, an electrician, to sort out messy electrics in a flat. I'd recommend his services - top notch electrician who sorted everything out and the paperwork too, great service.

Found Neil Tuckwell on this site. 07921 436945.
Very pleased with his work: friendly, efficient, competent, clean, reasonable rates. Would recommend.

Nic Lokko 07884 984661 - Nic put up some shelves, a new fence panel, installed a new shower screen and various other bits and bobs (incluiung fixing our sliding loft ladder that had fallen down). High quality work, nice guy, reasonable rates, all round extremely happy. I would definitely use him whenever I need something done around the house. Thanks Nic.

We had several repairs we had been delaying because we thought they would be too difficult or expensive to make. Carl came with all the right tools and it was great to have the electrics fixed in the back of the house and the laundry room. Whilst he was there I had him do other bits and pieces and he was very happy to help.

He was prompt and worked diligently and we were pleased with the final bill. Probably best was that he went overboard cleaning up after his work. Carl is an Oxford handyman and is on 07825 459517 (www.oxfordhandyman.services).

I found Neil Tuckwell on these pages and he has just spent a day with us doing all those little jobs that soon add up: hanging pictures, photos, tightening the kitchen tap, repairing the fridge etc. He got an awful lot done, was good company and his standard of work is very high. We will be using him again and can definitely recommend him!

I have used Vitalij for a number of jobs, big and small around the house, and cannot recommend him enough.

No job is ever too much trouble and the level of service he offers is really excellent - a true professional!

I am currently renovating my house so will be asking him to carry out more jobs very soon!!

His number is: 07403339099.

Joel did some work for me on my boat (repaired windows). I have no hesitation recommending him: not only is his work to a high standard and his rates are very reasonable, he was also punctual and courteous. (I would definitely use him again.)

Poli came over to look at our boiler which had a water temperature problem, after a thorough check & clean the problem was sorted. He has since been back to unblock a water pipe. He is a very conscientious & competent plumber, courteous & professional - he clears up afterwards, & his rate is very reasonable. his number is 07944692423 email [email protected] thoroughly recommended.

I own a property in Oxford and, over the last few years, Neil Tuckwell has done a variety of jobs for me. I cannot recommend his work and customer service highly enough.

Stephen H

Nick Boyes (07900 653737) from N B Property Maintenance is great. Registered company. Professional work. Better quality work and suprisingly cheaper than other local options (both as a day rate or for the same job).

Nic Lokko (07741 613744) is a close second. Also very good as per other recommendations here.

I work for the university and get emails circulating from approx 400 staff members so have had lots of tradesmen recommended over the years. Probably used around 8 or so over the last 20 years so I know a thing or two about handymen.

Nic Lokko, 07884 984661, was an excellent find for me and my house. He had a lot of really good ideas for making lovely and useful improvements. He took on different types of work both indoors and in my garden, making the latter a much nicer place to be. He plastered and painted in the house, made some clever storage then designed and built a lovely pagoda in the garden. Really looking forward to the summer now so I can enjoy it properly. All the work was completed to the highest standard and all the mess was cleaned up quickly with no fuss, even putting up with my OTT elderly mother. I'm happy to recommend.

Neil Tuckwell was fab - I work for a children's charity in the city centre, and I called him up and within 30 minutes he had driven round and put up our sign - for free. Great kind heart, pleasure to chat to him for half an hour.

Neil Tuckwell - 07921 436945 - just did a bunch of tricky jobs around my flat, such as fit a new hob, cut a blind to make it narrower and so on. Very quick and a very nice guy. Reasonable rate. Highly recommended.

Absolutely brilliant! Neil Tuckwell did a total refurbishment of my property worked very quickly and competently. No job was too small for him and would highly recommend his work ( I have already) to anyone wanting a top class, quality job at really reasonable rates. I have had excellent comments from friends regarding the work he has done for me such as "wow!" - just one comment on my bathroom alone.

Neil Tuckwell was fantastic! Not only were the jobs quickly and competently done but also the price was competetive. Thumbs up!

It was a pleasure to have Joel, of Creative Construction, digging out and landscaping the new pond. He was always on time, worked steadily, damaged nothing, charged sensibly, was flexible, and cleaned up thoroughly. He was an easy and welcome presence around the place. His number is 07970 818411.

I recently used O & S FENCING AND GARDENING SERVICES. They provided a great service. John and his colleague repaired my damaged fencing and where needed also replaced with new fencing. They also maintained my trees and took away unwanted rubbish. Terrific job to a very high standard, I most definitely recommend to all. Their number is 0777 188 7903.

Nic Lokko 07741613744 - Nic came round and repaired the walls of my second room, then papered the whole room. He was polite, funny, interesting, trustworthy and keen to do a perfect job.

Customer Rating: 5/5

Number: 07921 436945.

I can't recommend Neil enough. He has an encyclopedic knowledge on all manner of subjects and is always quick and tidy with the solution. I am an architect and am very happy to have found a true professional with an open and honest approach.

We used George Gazdag of Let Georgie Do It (07982 251598) to install a second toilet under our stairs, the plumbing was a nightmare but Georgie completed the task in a weekend including the tiling and redecoration, we are very relieved.
