West London Handyman Services

What if you want to ‘fix up’ your West London property but lack the time or relevant expertise to do so? In this corner of the UK capital, we at Essential Repairs offer a broad range of handyman services — including repairs, maintenance and light plumbing and electric jobs.

A handy man from our team can take care of those ‘odd jobs’ around the property — whether it is a home you own or a space (either domestic or commercial) you rent out.

What our Handyman Services Entail

A handy man is basically a tradesperson adept at patching and mending buildings both inside and out. Here are examples of work that can be carried out by a handyman at a London home or workplace:

Enhance your viewing experience with our TV wall mounting service. Our London technicians securely mount your TV, ensuring optimal positioning and a neat, cable-free setup.

Organise your space with our hanging shelves service. Our skilled team in London professionally installs shelves, providing sturdy and stylish storage solutions for your home.

Improve your home’s privacy and lighting with our fitting blinds service. Our London experts install a variety of blinds, ensuring a perfect fit and smooth operation.

Save time and effort with our flatpack assembly service. Our experienced London team assembles your furniture quickly and accurately, ensuring a hassle-free experience.


A handy man can alternatively be referred to as a handyperson, handyworker, fixer, repair worker, repair technician or maintenance worker.

Our handymen services also include tiling (ideal in high-moisture spaces like kitchens and bathrooms) as well as comprehensively redecorating interiors and exteriors.

What our customers say

We know more than a thing or two about property maintenance, having long provided various services under this banner. So, we have the right pedigree to provide London handyman services of the required standard. Here are just a few customers who have praised our big focus on quality:

Rapid, efficient, friendly

I was impressed from the word go with this firm. I was initially contacted by Alicja who took the basic details of the job and collected images of what I needed doing, presumably to pre-filter me to the right team. This was done very quickly and with minimal fuss, but in a personable and friendly way - which I appreciate is not an easy thing to balance. Less than 24 hours later I was contacted by Sameera who reconfirmed my details and booked me in with a contractor - again, with a friendly attitude and efficiently done. I got a text message with a tracking link telling me exactly when the contractor Giourgken was going to arrive, and it was helpful but unnecessary because he was precisely on time, completing the job perfectly and very quickly. He then did an assessment of another light fitting that we'd forgotten to ask to be included originally. All in all, I cannot fault Essential Repairs. I will absolutely be using them again and I thoroughly recommend them for speed, service and value.

Great working relationship

We regularly work with the team at Essential Repairs. Great bunch of people to work with! Looking forward to many more years collaborating! 🙂

What made my experience great is the wonderful SAMERA KOSHEN who has an outstanding customer service technique by resolving my repairs matter in a very short time and made everything smooth from getting the plumbing work done to replacing the broken appliances.

I cannot say enough good things about this company. They have jumped through hoops and made miracles happen for me.

I don't know what I would do without them!

I use this company a lot for myself and for the tenants of properties I look after, They are very responsive and reliable. I recommend them.

Excellent maintenance company for central London

The team at Essential Repairs are excellent. They are extremely well organised and very helpful, and fair on their pricing too. Engineer visited the property on time, solved and repaired the issue and made some good suggestions. Got a report back that day with a sensible cost. They have done other work for us since then, and the service levels are consistent. Would highly recommend.

Highly Responsive

Highly responsive, clear reports and accurate quotes. Have used their services for a number of years and will happily continue to do so.

Good communications

Good communications by phone, email and text. All appointments kept too. Surveyor reviewed the dampness problem and arranged for a specialist firm to carry out an inspection. The specialist firm gave me advice that they would pass to Essential Repairs for action. I look forward to the work being undertaken by ER in due course. All undertaken at nil cost (so far)

I could not have hoped for a more…

I could not have hoped for a more efficient service. Repairs were done and replacement parts were supplied and fitted very well.

The team were fantastic

The team were fantastic - I had an issue at 6pm with the boiler breaking, and contacted Sameera that evening, who arranged an engineer to come the next day at 8am. He reviewed, ordered the parts, came back the following day and all was fixed by 12 noon. Highly recommend - both for service, time and skill!

Reliable service

I have used Essential Repairs a couple of times now and have found them to be responsive, professional and their tradesmen to be courteous and very pleasant to have around the house. Keep up the good work.

Very reactive and good team

Handyman Service FAQs

No. We have stocked up on materials we already tend to use for many handyman projects. For this reason, when your handyman does arrive, they will bring with them some supplies — including:

● Screws

● White paint 

● White silicone 

● Wall plugs

When enquiring with us, be as specific as possible about what handyman services you need. We request this to help us source any other materials required for the job before we actually start it.

Nonetheless, upon inspecting the problem area of your West London property, the handyman could realise that they need a few extra materials not previously accounted for. In this situation, the handyman can fetch those materials before making a return visit to the property.

Yes! The areas we cover include Acton, Ealing (where our company is physically based), Chiswick and Isleworth — all of which are in West London.

No, as it would be against the law for the handyman to do this. Though a handyman can change lightbulbs, they are not legally permitted to fulfil any of the following electrical responsibilities:

● Installing new electrical light fixtures 

● Hardwiring ovens 

● Completely rewiring properties 

● Replacing extractor fans 

If you do need any such electrical jobs to be undertaken at your West London property, please ask to be introduced to one of our specialist electricians.
