HandyPro Handyman Service Columbus Warns Homeowners about Door-to-Door Handyman Scams
Beware of the door-knocking handyman who claims to notice a potential problem with your home and insists on providing an immediate solution
Unfortunately, the tough economy has also opened the door to scammers who take advantage of people. Tom Mills, owner of HandyPro Handyman Service in Columbus says, “Beware of the door-knocking handyman who notices a potential problem with your home and offers a solution. A reputable handyman does not go door knocking for work.”
HandyPro (http://handymanservicescolumbus.com/) does not work this way. They have become increasingly popular in their community for their honesty and reliability. Positive reviews from happy customers are evidence of their dedication to excellence in the home service industry:
“Carl has completed many projects at my house and completed my to do list. He is very professional and I would recommend him to my friends and have done so on many occasions. I will continue to use HandyPro for ALL my home repairs.” Taylor A.
"Thank you for the excellent job installing the new fence for us. HandyPro was not the cheapest bid we received but we trusted the way you presented the project over the other 3. The results are great and the attention to detail that you crew showed during the process, including clean-up was surprising. The grass has grown in and the look of our backyard is more than we expected. Let me know if you ever need us as a reference." Jeanne F.
Anyone can become a victim of a handyman scam, from young homeowners to seniors who need help with home maintenance. Some will point out a specific problem that could lead to serious damage without their service. They may even do a small job to gain the homeowner’s trust and then take a large upfront payment to purchase material for a larger job, but disappear. When the customer calls to see when they will begin service, they find the phone number has been disconnected and the company doesn’t exist.
Another common handyman scam involves the plan to rob the homeowner. When the handyman is allowed inside to quote a job, he is looking around to see if there is a security system and to case the place for valuables. He probably already knows the victim’s schedule and when he can safely return to his “job.
Many handyman services advertise on the internet, the newspaper and by mail. Most of them are reputable, but some are not. Tom Mills advises consumers to do some research before choosing a handyman service to work on their home. “People deserve an honest service provider and only the reputable handyman deserves their business,” said Mills.
Tom Mills and his wife, Laurie have always dreamed of owning a business where they provide a needed service that offers great value to the customer and requires a high level of integrity and customer service. The dream became reality when Tom and Laurie Mills purchased their HandyPro Handyman Services franchise in Columbus, Ohio in November, 2010. Visit www.handypro.com/w-nw-columbus.html/ to learn more.
