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.
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!
Would recommend Mike as a project manager.
Mike supervised the renovation of our bathroom and trademen arrived when expected. We are happy with the result.
I recommend Handy1 to everyone and look forward to working with them in the future.
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.
Total Gratitude to Mike Ransom & his team.
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.
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.
No complaints, I highly recommend using this company.
I cannot wait to see what Mike recommends for us when we get out bathroom done!Service and Craftsmanship on a… AAA+ Rating
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.
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.

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.
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."
