Weybridge and London offices – property maintenance requirements
Foster Denovo’s principal offices are in London and Weybridge, Surrey. In each of these locations. the company uses the services of 0800 HANDYMAN to help maintain the properties.
0800 HANDYMAN is London and Surrey’s leading mobile handyman service – servicing the residential and commercial sectors. It was the first business in London to provide a professional, mobile handyman service.
The company undertakes a range of jobs from small to large – flat packs to refurbishments. It also runs a number of trades through its skilled workforce, including, plumbing, carpentry, decorating, and has a team that focuses purely on refurbishments.
Foster Denovo regularly uses 0800 HANDYMAN at its Weybridge office, where the team goes in around periodically. In the London office, the company is used on a more regular basis.
Supporting the office management/facilities team
Allison Charlton heads up the office management team, she comments:
“When we had a health and safety risk assessment in our office Weybridge, it concluded that a few jobs needed to be undertaken. We were able to call upon 0800 HANDYMAN to carry out the work promptly. As ever, the turnaround was fast and the team undertook a very professional job.
“We have a small team of our own engineers we can call on in Weybridge. They tend to undertake the simpler jobs like changing light bulbs. But in the London office, we don’t have that kind of resource at hand – so call on 0800 HANDYMAN a lot more.
“They come to do things like changing light bulbs and fixing wobbly chairs, but we also ask them to do much bigger jobs. We line up the work and they come in and do it – quickly and professionally. Staff in the offices always comment on how professional the 0800 HANDYMAN representatives are. They come in, they get on with their job and they don’t disturb the day to day operation. .
“0800 is professional – they always tell us when they are coming and arrive at that time. We cannot fault the service."
Comments from 0800 HANDYMAN
“Foster Denovo is an interesting client to work with – as we service their two main offices. They have been a client for some time now; the work is varied, and we look forward to continuing to support the team further."
