Company Profile

J Cook Services

Hi, My name is Jim and I formed J Cook Services on the 1st of November 2010, after taking early retirement from my previous employer, it is a handyman service specialising in all aspects of property maintenance, particularly smaller jobs that the larger guys often find difficult to quote for. I have worked in building and engineering related services all of my life.

My interests are: Scouting (I am an assistant explorer scout leader), canoeing and kayaking with Upper Hamble Canoe Club, I climb, run and enjoy numerous other outdoor pursuits.

Work, I offer, amongst other things: plumbing repairs and small projects (outside taps, basins, loos, washing machine plumbing, unblocking drains etc), small carpentry jobs (door hanging, skirting, architrave, repairs etc), gardening (lawn cutting, hedge cutting, pruning) metal work repairs (gates repaired, ornamental metalwork repairs, welding etc), painting (exterior and interior including preparation and small crack and plaster repairs), I also offer a 'Let me help you' service, if you have a project of your own that you are keen to complete yourself but it is too big for one person or the equipment is too heavy or indeed you lack skills and just want advice or 'a hand' I am happy to help for a small fee that would be less than if you have to employ me for the whole project and you get the satisfaction of 'doing it yourself'

I look forward to hearing from you

Jim

Repair chair, fix door, replace bathroom fittings and more.
Jim is the 3rd handyman I've booked (first 2 were not successes), and I can only echo the other feedback : Jim is prompt, courteous, professional, tidy, very hard working, great results and uses his initiative. On both his visits, I gave him a list of jobs, and he just worked his way through them. I felt very comfortable with Jim in my house and also when I had to go out. All in all, excellent.

I phoned Jim the day before he came round. He fixed the toilet drip very quickly. He also dealt with couple of other issues on the day. He was very helpful and I would recommend Jim.

Simply fit one fluorescent tube.
Work was completed within 2 minutes. Mr Cook refused to take the amount previously agreed. I mentioned the least I could do in return was give complimentary feedback!

Replace fallen lounge curtain rail urgently as elderly lady living alone.
I am the daughter of an elderly person and urgently needed the curtain rail put back on the wall of front facing living room. Jim offered to come out between jobs. He had finished the work within an hour, he replaced furniture, vacuumed up all mess and left everything in good order. We would not hesitate to recommend him and will use his services again. His charge was very fair and reasonable.

Installing blinds, bathroom fittings, mirrors and pictures.
Jim has done work for us on a number of previous occasions and we have always been very pleased with what he has done for us. This was no exception. He was, as ever, punctual, courteous, friendly, helpful, hard working, ready to make constructive suggestions and carried out the work to a high standard. We could not be more pleased with the work he has done and he will be doing more for us in the near future.

Mended loft door which had jammed.
