Handy Van Service

East Boro's highly acclaimed Handy Van Repair Service provides practical help and support around the home, and there's no hefty labour charges either - you just pay for the materials used for the repairs. For all general maintenance and repairs, our Handy Van Repair Service is here to help.

If you own or rent a home in Bournemouth or Poole, are aged over 60, receive Pension Credit, Disability Allowance or other benefits then you can apply to use one or both of the services. So why not take the stress out of your domestic repairs and maintenance and leave it all to us.

For more information and to check you qualify, call us today on 01202 883 503 or email
