Russell is friendly, punctual and easy going. I completely trust him alone in my house and his experience means that he always has a solution to the trickiest of problems.
The Russell Hanson handyman service is highly professional, fast, friendly and reasonably priced: there’s nothing more that I’d want from such a service. My only hesitation in recommending Russell is that when everyone knows what a rare find he is, I may have trouble booking him.
Russell was great – professional, friendly, and the best part – no additional clean up. The work he did was exceptional – very thorough & detailed. He even gave me some tips on doing little jobs around the house myself. I have complete confidence in Russell’s abilities and there is no doubt I will call him again as soon as there is a job around the house which needs to be taken care of.

We have used Russell Hanson several times and have always found him a very efficient and professional jack of all trades who we have no hesitation in recommending to others.

I would highly recommend Russell the London Handyman. Russell gave really good advice about the best solution for several different tasks and was very helpful in finding an economical solution. Made a great job of fitting Monty’s catflap and finding a novel solution to overcome a problem with not being able to put a catflap through the door. Very trustworthy and clean and tidy.
I have used Russell Hanson’s handyman service and find him quick, cheerful, trustworthy – just what one looks for in a handyman. He will always tell you if he can’t do something and maybe have another suggestion to help.
I highly recommend Russell, the London Handyman. He is skilled, honest, friendly, thorough and quick. Without a doubt, I’ll be calling him again and am recommending him to my friends.
I am currently living in South Africa and have a property in Southfields which I rent out. The new tenants where not happy with the condition after the old tenants left. From South Africa I had to find someone reliable , very honest and effective who would charge reasonable rates. I needed various decorative and maintenance / repair jobs done and quickly. Russell was the perfect man for the job. He understood my urgency and completed all the jobs professionally. I will definitely call on Russell again!

Russ has carried out carpentry and paving for us. His work is of the highest standard and he takes a great pride in it. He is very helpful to have in the house.
Many thanks for your excellent work re-hanging our doors. Swift, tidy and very reasonably priced.

I a leak; building an under-stairs cupboard; and shaving the bottom of back and front doors as they had swelled and were sticking plus lots of other little bits that are not worth listing).
I find Russ friendly and reliable – and the quality of his work is great. I have no hesitation in recommending him – and would be happy to provide a verbal reference if anyone would like one.
A quick phone call and we ended up with same-day service – and we mean ‘service’! Three jobs done efficiently and at reasonable cost. Lots more to be done and it will go to Russell.

Russell provided a quick and professional handyman service fitting replacement floorboards. I’m very happy with the quality of the work and would happily call on Russell in the future and recommend to others.

Russell is one of those rare tradesmen you can trust with your house keys from the minute you meet him.
I contacted Russell by e-mail at the weekend about a couple of small jobs. He responded to my e-mails very promptly; and was able to come on the Monday straight after the weekend to do the jobs. Although thorough, he worked very swiftly, which helped to keep the cost down. I will certainly use him again for other similar tasks.

After many years of odd jobs piling up, and never being able to find anybody trustworthy, capable or interested enough to do them, I found Russell and I’m so glad I did!! He’s punctual (if you’re his first job, make sure you get up early!), polite and cheerful. He’s proficient and gets on with his tasks quickly. I’ve used him twice so far, and I’m already putting together another list of jobs. I absolutely recommend him!
I have used Russ on several occasions for handyman jobs of various sizes. He is invariably prompt, highly efficient and a delight to have in the house.
Best of all, he is very creative with a great eye for what will look good- he will not only suggest ways for the job to be improved, but also ways for the same effect to be created the most cost-efficient way. Don’t just ask me, ask my neighbours too- the work he has done for me has acted as a local piece of promotion.
London has a real treasure in Russell Hanson. His work ethic is excellent as is the quality of his carpentry, plumbing and finishing. We have been giving our kitchen and cloakroom a facelift and Russell has been helping us where our limited DIY skills run out. He’s flexible, reliable and always willing to give advice, provide ideas and help us get the most for our budget. Not only is Russell great value, but he also takes pride in his work. He’s a good bloke too and we’ve already recommended him to a number of our friends. You won’t go wrong with Russell.

Russell inspires confidence and justifies it. He works quickly and effectively in attending to majorish and minor problems, saving us a great deal of money by doing a variety of jobs that would otherwise have required the services of several tradesmen. He sizes up a job in at most a few minutes, and if something is outside his competence he says so immediately. Most of what he has done for us so far has been small scale and routine but there is another larger job (which I should have attended to long ago, procrastinating because of its domestic inconvenience) that he has agreed to do in the future.
Tom & Ros Aitken, Richmond
Thank you very much for your help. We were really pleased with all the work you did and appreciated your very friendly, approachable and practical approach. We will certainly use you again and would definitely recommend you to others.
Michael & Victoria, Clapham North
Thank you for your excellent service today. You were so flexible with a range of jobs, big and small (making shelves, mending the boiler, checking a faulty light, putting up smoke alarms). The work is finished to a high standard and your advice was helpful and very genuine, even when following it meant less work for your business. Your bill was very reasonable and all costs were explained upon booking and final costs did not exceed your estimate – there were no hidden nasty surprises! You are charming and professional, hard-working, reliable with time, and you even hoovered up the sawdust! We will definitely call you again in the future and will highly recommend you to anyone who is also looking for help. Please do use this letter as a testamonial.
Many thanks again,
Victoria & Tom, August 2010
Everything you could ever want in a handyman! He is incredibly well priced too! Save up a number of jobs you need doing and get him around. I have used so many overly expensive services, who have frankly been appalling – Russell is hard working and honest, and I would recommend him 100% Refreshing and thank goodness for that! Will use him again without question.
