About Me

Hi, My name is John C. Sweet,
I have had a range of jobs over my working life and picked up many valuable skills in and outside of these jobs.

Some of the jobs I have done include, but not limited to-

  • Director of and I.T company
  • Electrical/Mechanical Engineer
  • Sky Engineer
  • Car Valeter
  • Retail Manager

    To name a few 😉

So I know my way around such things as Electrics, TV/Audio visual, Computers, Mobile phones, Working at height, H&S, Power tools. I have also been a keen D.I.Y er over the years and do as much of my home repairs and improvements as I can.

I am not a gardener or landscaper but I have done a few garden projects in the past. I will post some before and after shots at some point.

I take pride in my work and can turn my hand to many things. That said I know my limitations and I will not say i can do something if I cannot or do not want to do it. I want to grow a reputation for quality work and not jeopardise it for a few pounds.

I have had a CRB (now known as DBS) in place for over seven consecutive years.

I have PLI (Public Liability Insurance) to the value of Five Million Pounds – This is advised and in some cases, Legal requirement.

  • 5 star review  John managed to sort out my completely broken central heating system which had previously been poorly installed (by others). 8 changed radiators, piping modifications and an installed filter later all is running well! Very punctual, helpful and skilled. Would definitely use him again.

    positive review  John arrived on time, quickly assessed the situation and got on with the job installing surveillance cameras and removing the old alarm and satellite dish. He was very quick and efficient and had the job done to a high standard in just over an hour. I'll certainly use him again. Thanks John

    5 star review  John has been fab - did a variety of jobs in our new house including fitting a new security light and extractor fan, painting and fixing some creaky stairs. He was very professional came to check what needed doing and told us exactly what he could do, then emailed me to confirm the details and check I was happy for him to go ahead. He then sent individual prices for each job (very reasonable and acceptable in my opinion) and we arranged a date for the work. On the chosen dates he arrived on time, was tidy, professional and so quick. I am amazed at what he did in such a short space of time - 2 days to do what would have taken us who knows how long! I would definately recommend John to anyone looking for a reliable, hard working handyman and will be using his services again myself. Thanks

  • 5 star review  John came a few weeks ago to fit an outside tap. He did a great job, discussing the various options to settle on the one that suited us best. Very polite and professional, he worked without any fuss or bother and got the job done right on time. We chatted about all the other things he can do and I’m sure I’ll be using his services again. An all round nice guy and definitely recommend his services.
