Handy Person Service

At Gedling Homes we have a new Handyperson service for tenants called Hands 4 Hire.  This service is available if you need help to carry out a range of small DIY jobs inside or outside your home.  If you are struggling to get DIY jobs done in your home, or finding that there are jobs that need doing but you cannot manage them yourself, then we may be able to help.

Who can access this service?

The service is available to all Gedling Homes tenants with clear rent accounts.

How much does it cost?

The cost of the service is £17 per hour.  Please note that you must provide the materials required for the job, for example, a curtain pole or a shelf.

If you cannot supply the materials yourself we may be able to help, but this will carry an additional cost.

How do I apply?

If you would like to use the Hands 4 Hire service, email hands4hire@gedlinghomes.co.uk or contact the team on 0115 905 1515.  They will check that you are eligible for the service and that the work you want to have done is suitable for the team.  If this is the case, a convenient appointment will be made for you and a skilled Hands 4 Hire operative who has the correct tools and equipment to do the job safely and properly will come to your home.
