Here’s are just some testimonials from some of our customers about our services. Thumbs up


Dave was recommended to me by a friend and as recommendations go, it has been one of the best.  Dave has proved consistently reliable, trustworthy and brilliant at his job and I have had no hesitation in recommending him to others who have been thrilled with the finished job.  He has completely updated my kitchen, redecorated my dining room, mended the fascias and replaced a fencing panel and it all started from asking him to tackle an awkward bathroom tap that no-one else would come and look at - no job is too big or too small and it's great to have  someone out there you can call knowing he will help and not overcharge you.  Dave takes a pride in his work and you know that it will be as perfect as he can make it.  Added to all this he is friendly and considerate.

Everyone needs a Dave in their lives.  Once you find him you will never want to let him go!


Etwyn - Northbourne

Having recently moved to Bournemouth I was in need of a reliable and efficient handy person who could tackle some of the many jobs that needed doing in my new home. After four failures with different people, Age Concern put me in touch with Dave.

I have had the most of the work completed by Dave. He is very punctual, his work is to a very high standard, he is very upfront about what the work would cost and his fees. With Dave there were no hidden costs


I was referred to David by AgeUK. He was quick to come round to hear my request for a quotation supply and fitting of a banister rail. He quickly quoted a very reasonable  ​price  and early date. He arrived promptly and rapidly erected a good rail. He did not leave any debris or saw dust.
A few days later he also supplied a high quality fence panel for my garden and erected it within 5 minutes and only charged £30.
David is very professional quick and good value at his work. I am ready to recommend him to any one.
Kind regards


Dave has carried out various jobs at my elderly father's property over the past few years. He has always done a very thorough job, making sure he got to the root of the problem and sorted it out properly. He's the kind of handy man that, once you have found him, you don't know how you managed without him. Dave would be my first port of call for anything at all I wanted done to my property, and I would be sure that the work would be done at the agreed time, for the agreed price, stress-free.

He sorted out a drainage and complicated blocked pipe problem for us, coming back twice to make sure the system was clear all the way through, has given us advice on roofing and also helped with a variety of small plumbing and carpentry jobs.  He keeps any mess to a minimum and clears up after himself.

He has always had time to fit in small tasks as well as larger projects. I have found him to be very helpful in giving advice on what needs to be done, he will also tell you if something can be done more effectively or in a cheaper way, or if it actually doesn't need doing at all, even when this means he won't earn as much money from the job.
I have passed on Dave's name to friends and I know that some of them have recommended him further to family and neighbours who have also been very happy with his work.

As well as being able to vouch for Dave's absolute honesty and reliability, the other thing I really like about working with Dave is the way he explains everything clearly at the outset, so I know what's going to be happening.

We have known Dave Snell professionally for over a decade. Throughout this time he has undertaken a variety of maintenance and decoration projects for us both in our home and in our rental property. We have always been pleased with the results. Dave has a wide range of practical skills but knows his limitations so is always realistic in deciding what he can take on, how long a job is likely to take and provides realistic quotes Read More
