    "Have just had a huge deck surrounding a swimming pool and other decking areas replaced by Mike's team. It looks incredible, roll on summer!!!
    Great price and a quality job.
    Under the supervision of Les, Stephen and Harvey did an amazing job. Just really nice guys and nothing was too much trouble. They cleaned up at the end of each day which included sweeping up all the sawdust as well.
    I will certainly be using Handy1 Trade Services LTD again and have already arranged for Mike to quote for another job inside. Great team, prompt and courteous at all times.

    "We had our guest bathroom renovated in April. Mike at Handy1 turned up when promised, provided a fair quote and worked to budget giving ample warning of any potential changes. This is a very good team of people to have working on a building project. Mike's communication is excellent and the quality of his teams work is top notch. We will definitely use Handy1 again in the future. "

    "Mike and his team team turned our tired old bathroom into a stunning new one.
    This is the second time we have had the pleasure of their workmanship and once again we are very pleased with the result. Everyone working in our home had a pleasant manner, were most professional and worked really hard to get the final result that we now enjoy.
    Thanks to Mike and his team we now have a newly renovated home. Friends tell us that it is like a new
    house all to-gether. It is only when we show them the before photos that they appreciate the work that has gone into making it what it looks like today.

    "Mike and his team were great.

    Mike was running a little late on a couple of site visits and send me a text but both times he wasn't as late as he thought he'd be!

    I was very pleased with the quality of the work - as usually happens there were a couple of things that needed a bit of a tidy-up after the painting was completed but doing those little bits was no trouble for Mike and his team.

    I got multiple quotes and Handy1 was in the middle. I only used companies from this website and it was interesting that some didn't respond to me at all, and a couple came and looked but the quote never arrived despite me prompting them for it! Handy1 was quick to respond to my NoCowboys message, the quote arrived when promised and included all of the bits and pieces I needed doing which I can't say was the case for the other quotes I received. Mike was great at keeping me informed about where they were at with the work and how long each thing would take via either text or email."

    "I have used Handy1 umpteen times over the past 6 or so years and have always found them faultless. Mike is personable, professional, honest and earnest. His tradesmen are skilled, experienced, courteous and respectful. Handy1 take all the stress out of any renovation or project and I cannot recommend them highly enough. Already looking forward to the next time I pick up the phone to pitch my latest plan to Mike!"

    "A job well done by Mike and the team.
    We found all the team conscientious, reliable, trustworthy and very respectful.
    Being able to communicate with one person for the complete project was awesome.
    We were able to relate to Mike our ideas, and he was able to expand them with some of his own.
    We were always kept informed and if there had to be changes we were consulted first.
    With a bathroom yet to be renovated in the future, no doubt we will be seeing more of Mike and the team.
    We look forward to any ideas from Mike that will give our bathroom the same WOW factor that we are enjoying with the present renovation. Please convey our thanks to all involved. Warm regards Valma and Ron Henry

    "I needed someone to bring all the tradesmen together to tear out an old kitchen (where two tall cupboards left holes in ceiling), and install, supply and design a new one. I also needed a toilet replaced.
    All of the tradesmen were willing and professional, and Mike made some choices for me which were good quality - but not over the top in price. I am totally satisfied with the finished job and as problems arose (such as whole floor replacement due to flooring deterioration) Mike tackled all of this for me, and his costs were extremely fair. The kitchen supplier he remommended, Moda, made all the cabinets etc to order and everything is a good quality. A real gold star for effort and project management. A big thanks from me.

    "We\'ve just booked Mike and his team to do our 4th job - they\'re that good, and they do everything!
    First was regibbing and plastering our girls\' room, and removing a window and installing French doors.
    Second was installing a pergola with a clear roof over our deck, and third was repairing our front fence.
    Now we\'ve booked them again to build a deck at the front of our property.
    Mike\'s always very responsive and proactive in his communication with me, and I highly recommend them.

    "I have to bne honest and say this is my thrid rating, but also the third distinct piece of work Handy 1 have done for us. Glyn and Nathan did such a good job of finishing up the internal painting that we asked them back to do the outside. THe quote was very reasonable, Gln was very clear on what prepr would be done and where they might need Mike to do some replacement of weatherboard etc. The job was done very well, to a high standard, and great value for money. And the guys were very friendly, considerate and professional in their work as my wife was home with a baby. Great job again."

    "My wife said last night, \"What would we have done without the folks from Handy1\" We\'re working senior citizens with a 20 year old home that was suffering from a number of problems that had accumulated in recent years and needed to be dealt with but required a number of different trades. We were overwhelmed with the job of locating the right people for the right job. Having had excellent luck before with nocowboys.co.nz we came across Mike Ranson\'s property maintenance firm Handy1. Mike was the answer to our prayers. In just 15 minutes of inspecting our home he not only identified the causes of many of our various problems, pointed out a few more and suggested various options for dealing with them. These included reflooring and retiling our laundry area, cleaning gutter and repairing roofing tiles, fixing sagging lintels over two sets of french doors and windows, locating and replacing a leaky water valve which had been the unknown source of damp and mildew. Every one of Mike\'s trades people arrived on time, did a great job, cleaned up after themselves and were easy to get along with. Mike was always on top of things and communicated with us on almost a daily basis during some of the period. We found Mike\'s quotes fair and value for money because of the high quality of the work performed and making it hassle free for us. Next is a repaint of our kitchen and dining area and no doubt we\'ll be calling on Handy1 to do additional jobs in the futuure. They really are a total property maintenance firm."

Electrics, lighting, gib, plaster, painting, kitchen re-jig, plumbing and even the re-enamelling of our bath. This time round they stepped in and took over the painting at short notice when we fell out with the previous painters. Great team, always know we can trust them to do a good job, and will continue to call Mike first whenever we need some help."

I've used Handy1 Property Solutions before and am constantly impressed with the consistency of service, top quality of work and excellent communication at all times. People turn up when they say they will, the work is done in a timely manner and to a top standard.

    "We rate Handy 1 as being 100% reliable and honest. Before accepting a job he gives a quote with a breakdown of how he reached the total. Being financially stressed we tried to sell our property, without success, because of maintenance faults. In despair we asked Handy1 to repair the major damage, indicated by a building inspector. Such was the extent that we had no way of paying for it. With discussion and reviews Mike sought out other means of repair reducing costs. It was a huge help and a sale resulted."

Communications were easy by email and phone and we felt informed at every step .
    The bathroom turned out very well , and within our small budget ,in the main due to the helpful hints and guiding from Mike and all his contractors . The painting was done in a very tight time schedule and we were able to entertain our overseas visitors with all the work completed Very happy all round .

    "We had a few jobs that needed doing - installing cupboard shelves, finishing installation of an oven rangehood, sealing a kitchen bench and tiling a splashback. The splashback was particularly difficult due to a large bow in the wall.

    Mike and his team did a fantastic and very thorough job and all in a very professsional, friendly and reliable manner. I would have no hesitation in recommending Handy1 and we will definitely be using them for any future work. Thanks to Mike and the team!"

    "We have had Mike and his team do work for us before. This time we did a full kitchen renovation. It included removing a fireplace, reinstating walls, floor and roof, installation of kitchen, plumbing and electrical, floor polishing and painting. All work was done to a high standard. Mike coordinated all the trades which made the whole experience as painless a possible. A great job well done."

    "Good initial communication and quality of work. However, it took a few days to make an arrangement for someone to come and then they re-arranged for yet another couple of days later. I thought the cost was rather high compared to the size of the repair but I am not sure as I'm not handy girl myself. Overall, not bad but could be better."
    Mike Ranson responded:
    "Thank you for your feedback Yolanda, this is disapointing to hear and rate this low as our communication and quality of the work was acceptable. Please note this was a quoted and accepted job before we carried out any work for the small guttering repair. Not sure what else we could have done. Apologies for the delay in coming out."

I needed a few little things done before my husband's 40th (plastering, sanding, painting ... just little repair jobs) - it was short notice and you made it happen - thank you! You're incredibly professional and your team were VERY tidy - left the house immaculate after each visit ... wow! (one less thing for me to worry about). The workmanship is top notch and your communication was incredible! Thank you! Will most certainly use you again - so refreshing, thank you! :)"

    "First Class Renovations.

    Bathroom Transformed

    From overseas, we negotiated price, quality fittings i.e. vanity, shower & surrounds, toilet, supatub etc and per email juggled items & costs until satisfied, then paid 1/2 up front & 1/2 upon completion. Result even better than predicted.

    We had other quotes but only Handy1 Property Solutions Ltd had all the detail.

The work was done promptly, and the standard of work was good. Handy1 were able to offer a very competitive price and to complete the job without any delay. All rubbish and materials were cleared from the site after the job was done.

    What was also nice was that Mike was able to provide photos of how the new deck railing would look, using examples from previous jobs."

    "I cannot fault Mike's dedication to the high level of customer service he is committed to. Handy1 is an excellent concept - so much easier to deal with one company that can provide all services rather than chasing around numerous contractors - who has time for that on top of work and family? My bathroom was totally (and beautifully) renovated by Handy1 with the bare minimum of aggravation which is a big achievement in my book. A bonus that it came in on budget too. Mike kept me informed of progress and issues all the way through the work and offered me constant reassurance and guidance based on his extensive experience. I have no hesitation in recommending Handy1 to all."

    "We've had Mike work on several projects for us.
    He does provide a great service - and his trades people are generally good. The builder and carpet layers did an excellent job. However I think he may have been let down with sub contractors on another job as it took several weeks to get a quote. I would have preferred if we were told "look, we can't help you with that job at this stage - i don't have anyone to quote on it"

    The costs he has provided for all projects have been in line with what i was expecting - however I have learned over the years to provide people with a ballpark budget which obviously helps! I found Mike to be knowledgeable, a great communicator and someone who understands the needs of busy people who can't always take time out to choose carpet or check on work progress. We would use him again for our rental house, for sure."

    "HandyOne was supurb cosmetically renovating an investment property, installing a kitchen and manging his experienced and very pleasant team. He enabled us to turn a proft in this slow market. Other experts coming through the property commented 'keep these guys on, they know what they are doing'. Mike would phone me with a proposal that had only just started to formulate in my head. I realised I would never get contractors to turn up the way HandyOne did, and the job could have gone on much longer and cost much more. No-one was ever late, they were even on site doing extra after hours. It was a 'no problem, you want it - you've got it ... and have you thought about this?' kind of relationship. It would be great to get them in to sort out a new home and make it perfect before moving in, they would handle it without any kind of fuss."

    "I contacted Mike to do some small work for a rental property. Mike responded promptly and managed to fit in painting a door before Xmas. The best thing was that Mike was happy to liaise directly with my tenant which saved me heaps of time, no need to make lots of phone calls! I have not actually seen the finished work however my tenant would have been on to me immediately if he wasn't happy. I will be using Mike and his team again for a small tiling job at the same property and would highly recommend his services, and definitely will be using them again in the future."

The contractors that did our job were FABULOUS! Steve (the builder) is not only a lovely person, but a meticulous tradesman who is proud of his work - all my friends are raving about how awesome our new deck is!

    I cannot wait to see what Mike recommends for us when we get out bathroom done!

    "Mike and Stephen were very efficient in their initial communication regarding the quote and the job to be done (painting the exterior of my house).

    Stephen arrived on time to provide a quote and from there Handy 1 arranged for the scaffolding company to set everything up for the job. Handy 1 were the only company I contacted who were able to get a reasonable quote for the scaffolding. Other companies were able to provide quotes for the painting but they could not get a scaffolding company to work with them. The quality of the work undertaken is excellent and I'm very happy with the result. This company has been a pleasure to deal with and I would definately use them again."

    "I contacted Mike prior to Easter to firstly get a quote for building a hot water cupboard and also to get a quote for renovating our bathroom.
    Mike organised for Brendan to contact us re the hot water cupboard. Brendan made contact with us and came to work at the organised time.
    Mike was meant to come the same day and quote on the bathroom he never did.
    Over the Easter break I emailed Mike re making a new appointment for the bathroom quote, he said he'd ring the week after Easter to organise a time one evening for the quote. This never happened. We "booked" Brendan in, through Mike, to build our Hotwater cupboard, all correspondence was done via email, so that there would be no confusion with dates and times. Brendan arrived one week early, despite the emails Mike had got the date completely wrong. Luckily for us Brendan was understanding and able to come back the next week. Mike took about 3 days to reply back to me (even after a phone call chasing him) to confirm that Brendan was able to come on the date as previously confirmed. Brendan did a good job with our hot water cupboard. But I was left with the feeling that because we were West Auckland residents our bathroom renovation wasn't even worth quoting on. Despite Brendans good job, I was left with a sour taste in my mouth after this and won't be using Handy 1 again, which is disappointing as I only contacted the company after seeing the great feedback on this web site.

    "WORK CARRIED OUT: EXTERIOR PAINTING OF WHOLE HOUSE, ROOF AND GARAGE/SLEEPOUT.

    We were really impressed with the results of the painting of the exterior of the house. We had an unusual roof paint request that these guys went out and found for us ( tile like colour on a tin roof) the match to what was in my mind was spot on. (FYI - The colour you pick can look completely different on Tin then on wood as we found out - but still love it :o) .We felt very secure with the guys at our house when we were not home, very friendly and trustworthy. They made our Garage look almost brand new - when we were not expecting it too... rusty and right back to tin, but they did an amazing job. We found that they took the job personally, wanting to make sure everything looked perfect. Would definitely not hesitate to use these guys again.

    "WORK CARRIED OUT: DECK RENOVATION/EXTENSION - as per picture on website.

    Our deck was in such a state that it was all torn down and we added another 8 square metres while we were at it. The work carried out was brilliant, a lot of thought went into what they were doing at each stage. We felt very secure having them working at our house while we were not at home, very trustworthy friendly workers. There were areas (through no fault of their own) that we were not happy with and they were very understanding and fixed it up so that we were happy with it. Currently our Deck is pictured on Mikes handy 1 website so you can see for yourself just what a great job they did. Quick and very meticulous - we would not hesitate in working with them again. And we are, they are doing our deck, bedroom, bathroom, exterior of the house and possibly the boundary fence. Thanks Mike and team."

As I had used Mike in the past for much bigger jobs I was pleased that he was just as happy to do this quite small job. The job was done expertly and quickly, he used top quality hinges and left the area clean and tidy.

    "We were given a price for the job and then re-negotiated. The quality of the painting work was not good. We had to have the painter come back to rectify some issues.

    When I discussed the poor quality of the work, I was told that it was due to the reduction in the original price we had negotiated!

    We were also charged for additional work that was not picked up on the original quote ... fair enough, however, when you are charged a ridiculous rate for putting a piece of skirting board ... not good."

    "Very happy with the quality of the work, kitchen looks amazing. Although not a major, the timing of the plasterer was a little dissappointing however communication throughout was great and didn't affect the finished product. Highly recommended!"
