               Application Form

                                        Our story
Who are we?
The Handy Squad is a company based in Central London that aims at providing a reliable,
affordable and professional maintenance service to residential and commercial customers.

What do we do?
We take care of small maintenance jobs around the home and office. We focus on odd jobs
as well as carpentry, plumbing/heating, electrical and decorating work.

Why do we do it?
       We believe that maintenance and repair tradesmen in this country (and in general)
        are not held in high regard: they are seen as being unpunctual despite requiring the
        customer to wait in all day; they are also seen as being extremely expensive
       We believe that many specialist tradesmen often only wish to take care of “well
        paying” problems in their specific trade and are less helpful in taking care of the
        smaller jobs
       We believe that a large proportion of home/business owners in London lack the
        time, skills or inclination to keep on top of the many odd jobs that crop up each

There is therefore high demand for a reliable, punctual service with a focus on small jobs.

                                  How you can help
