So I've lost a lot of faith for humanity over the years.
Occasionally, I meet someone that restores my faith.
Last night Louise Barratt and Andy Mahoney saved my ass. 
I have a very poorly fur baby, and found out while I was out in Lincoln, no questions asked this couple reassured me, drove me back to Nottingham City Centre without wanting anything in return son could get to the emergency vets to be with my doggo.
Honestly, the kindest people I've met in the last 10 years.

HUGE RESPECT for this couple! I can't say thank you enough!

We asked Andy and Louise to clear a plot of land, lay a suitable base and erect a Mercia summer house for us in August 2017.

They turned up on time every day, were great company and always very polite.

The work was to an exceptional standard, including the laying of an electric underground cable from the house to the summer house.

To our amazement they noticed a section missing from my garden shed and at the end of the job repaired it at no cost.

I highly recommend this team and have already requested that they refurbish 13 internal wooden doors for us, we look forward to seeing them again in the near future.

Hi Andy and Louise, just to let you know Mary and I would like to say how grateful we are for all that you have done for us, the high standard of work and the friendly manner that you have gone about your business.

We have very much appreciated finding someone we can trust to help us get the house to where we want it to be and we look forward to sending more work your way in the Spring. And you brought us cake!

Thanks for everything and look forward to seeing you soon.

Hello Andy,

We are very pleased with the work that you and Louise have carried out in our rear garden, the two patio extensions look great and all we had hoped for. As we are fairly new to Ruskington, it is so comforting to know that you are so highly regarded and we can certainly testify that the quality of your work is of a very high standard. We are more than happy to recommend you to anyone and what is just as important as a customer is that you thought through the details of the job and communicated with us at all stages to ensure that we were satisfied.

We look forward to working with you in the New Year for improvements in our front garden.

(Customer Testimonial October 2015 - sent to Screwfix Regional Finalists 2015 For Tradesman of the year)

'It was with pleasure I heard the news that Handy Andy had been selected to go through to the
regional finals of the Screwfix Tradesman of the Year 2015 as I feel it is richly deserved!

I have known Andy for around 6 months now. The first job he did for me was an electrical one. One
of those annoying jobs that seem barely worth calling someone out for but you can’t do yourself.
I
asked my neighbours if they knew anyone and his name was put forward.

Because I work he was flexible and popped over one evening to sort it for me.

Immediately I felt at ease and he was a
polite, courteous and tidy worker.

When a few months later I needed two taps replacing he was the first person I called. This time I was
happy to leave him with a key so he could work in the day whilst I was at work. Again a great job
done at a very reasonable price.

I had been planning a major overhaul of my garden and I knew Andy was a general all rounder so I
contacted him and asked him to come and see me and chat about what I was looking for and if he
felt it was something he could do. His enthusiasm was infectious and I booked him in for the job.

As the time got nearer I gave him an outline of what I wanted and where but because I had decided
to be away at the time of the work I explained I was trusting his judgement to fill in the gaps in the
plan.

The time duly arrived, the dogs went to kennels and keys were handed over ….. and off I went,
leaving behind a muddy mess ……..

The work he had to do was to turn a quagmire into a peaceful, dog friendly haven and that is exactly
what he did. I have family and friends who are green with envy.

Andy made cedar gates to span a width of about 5 meters.
He removed old tired shrubs and tonnes and tonnes of soil and half dog dug up lawn and replaced
with gravel and a large piece of artificial turf

He also made me 6 beautiful planters and stained them to my colour requests and painted my garage wall

Reed screening went up along one side of the garden
That description doesn't really do it justice though or encompass what a vast change was made but the pictures do.

I got exactly what I wanted, in the budget I wanted and within the timescale agreed ~ who can ask
for more?

I know that in future he will continue to be the first person I turn to for any jobs and I can’t
recommend him highly enough'

'Just want to say a very big thank you for doing the gate today. It looks great and it will make life a lot easier for all of us.'

'Charlie said your a nice bloke and glad he chose you to do the work for us and didn't go somewhere else, coming from Charlie that's a compliment because he can be a miserable sod at the best of times!'

Andy,
We wanted to take the opportunity to thank you for the excellent work you carried out on our house.

Being new to the area, we obviously had to take a chance on the selection of the Company we employed but as it turned out, we could not have made a better choice.

We quickly realised on our first meeting that you were totally genuine and trustworthy and this expectation was fully realised.

You arrived to do the job when you said you would and the work was carried out efficiently and to a very high standard.
We are extremely pleased to have met you and would have no hesitation in recommending your services.

Alan and Linda, Greylees.
