UPDATE: Marts Handyman Services will be taking a temporary break throughout October, November and December of 2023 and apologises for any inconvenience caused. This is due to carrying out a full refurbishment of a flat and consequently having to dedicate all available time to this one off project. May I take this opportunity to thank my many customers for their patience and understanding and I look forward to returning to regular service in the new year 2024.
If you have ever tried to hire a tradesman to carry out small/medium sized works or odd jobs, I expect you may know first hand just how frustrating an experience it can often be, hopefully I may be able to help. I'm Mart, Cardiff based Handyman, and here for you to call on to carry out all manner of property maintenance, improvements, and repair tasks you may require or have planned for your home. Though I am keen for the business to emphasise the no job too small philosophy, I can and do take on slightly larger and more involved type works that may take for example a few days to complete, so please do feel free to contact me* via the contact form at the foot of the page regarding anything you may have in mind. All work is carried out by myself. Established in 2007, the business serves customers throughout Cardiff and near surrounding areas** has a large and established customer base many of whom have been loyal and valued customers for a number of years, and of course welcomes new enquiries from potential customers seeking the services of a reputable, professional, and comprehensive Handyman service able to carry out a variety of work ranging from general home repair tasks to traditonal trades.

Landlords: I am extremely selective when considering whether to work in a rental property or not, I do not work for slum landlords, nor do I work for career landlords with 'portfolio's' of properties, whom in my opinion are part of the problem regarding the current and disgraceful UK housing market. Please only contact me if the property being rented out is in a good (not 'It's only a rental so it doesn't matter') condition, and if you are able to demonstrate some degree of humility towards tenants and care for the properties upkeep as if you were living there yourself. If making an enquiry, please be clear and state that you are a landlord and that the property in question is a rental. Sadly, experience with many landlords has forced me to include this on the website.
*The most convenient way to make an enquiry is by filling out the contact form at the foot of the page, please give as much detail as you are able to. Please note to check your spam/trash folder as well as your inbox for any reply. ** I cover Cardiff excluding the city centre. Penarth and Dinas Powys to the west. Taffs Well, Tongwynlais, and Caerphilly (town, not county) to the north. I do not work in Cardiff city centre under any circumstances. Please be mindful that I cannot give prices or timescales for the length of possible works over the phone or via email without viewing the job in question.
