Go To Handyman specialise in rental property repairs and cover a vast range of handyman services to suit everyone – from individuals in their caravans to domestic and commercial premises. I carry out a large number of jobs in and around properties throughout Northumberland, from repainting a property to putting up bathroom accessories, I cover it all – I’ll even change a light bulb for you! With over 20 years experience in the maintenance and property field – it’s no wonder I am the handyman service that is one of the most trusted in the North East.

Check out the link to my handyman services page below for a small selection of some of the work I do.


My electrical services include replacing sockets, light fittings, extractor fans, light bulbs, door bells, switches and more.


From plumbing in sinks, fixing leaks, repairing toilet cisterns, replacing ball valves and installing washing appliances to bathroom fitting, changing taps, shower replacement and resealing baths / showers.

Odd Jobs

I undertake all sorts of odd jobs from changing locks, fitting blinds & curtains, flat-pack assembly and putting up shelves to picture  hanging, mounting TV’s, replacing door handles and fitting letterboxes.


I cover everything from painting, wallpapering, tiling and small repairs to plasterwork to filling cracks / holes and repairing/renewing grout.

About Us

The inspiration for Go To Handyman came from the demand for a tradesman to provide a service to cater for little jobs, as well as the bigger projects. Many tradesmen either weren’t interested or charged way over the odds, especially for the smaller jobs! It was clear that a gap in the market existed for a service wanting to handle minor repairs and routine maintenance tasks!

I carried out extensive research around Northumberland and North Tyneside, including areas such as Morpeth, Ashington, Alnwick, Amble, Cramlington, Blyth, Jesmond, Gosforth and Newcastle and found that the services offered by other Handyman Companies were too expensive or their services were not as comprehensive as what I offer….

I initially started as The House Husband – Handyman Service, and as the business grew I needed to remodel the company. And so ‘Go To Handyman’ was created.

  • Multi Skilled

    I can do a wide variety of everyday repairs and maintenance tasks, including basic plumbing and electrical work. I’ll put up shelves, change light fittings, assemble furniture, mount tv screens, change locks, pretty much any DIY task.

  • Fast & Efficient

    I pride myself on how efficient I am, and as a result this has enabled me to become one of the most relied upon and trusted Handyman in the North East.

  • Affordable Prices

    I only charge sensible prices, I don’t charge over the odds and have a simple and fair pricing structure is in place so you know exactly how much to expect to pay.

  • Health & Safety

    I am fully focused on applying a safe working practice in every aspect of our service delivery. I keep the work area tidy, provide relevant protection to surrounding areas and clean up when the work is complete.

Our Pricing Structure

Most jobs are worked out on an hourly charge, however some jobs have a set price, depending on the level of skill or knowledge required for the work. The hourly charge is from £30.00. Prices are inclusive of VAT at the current rate

I accept Cash or direct Bank Transfer on the day of work. Cheques can be accepted, however this is strictly by prior arrangement and must be cleared before the works are undertaken.

I can provide materials for you, or we can fit parts that you supply.

** Cheques are to be made payable to ‘Go To Handyman’ and an administration fee of £5.00 per cheque is chargeable, to be paid in advance of works being undertaken.

Estimates may incur a travel fee, which is charged at the hourly rate as above where distance to travel from our office (based near Amble) to the site where the estimate is required is more than 20 minutes travel time. I reserve the right to charge a fee for amendments to estimates or quotes, once issued, and will require payment in advance.

What others say about us

The level of service at Go To Handyman is fantastic, having been a customer for a few years now, I am consistently impressed by the professionalism of the staff, thank you!

Mrs A Irwin, Lesbury

In this day and age, it’s hard to find a company you can trust. Go To Handyman was recommended to me by a friend, and now I know why – the quality of service I received was outstanding – Keep up the good work!

Mrs K Addison, Washington

I was totally surprised when he turned up on time! I was told when I booked that a handyman would be with me at 12:30 and sure enough there he was… and what’s more, I was told the work would take about an hour and it took 55 minutes! I will certainly use Go To Handyman again!

Mr M Gilligan, Kingston Park

I have used a couple of other so-called Handymen before, so was a bit dubious at first but i was told the time he would be here, how much it would cost and how long it would take! I was surprised when all 3 came true! Already booked my next lot of work in!

Mrs R Critchley, Cheshire

I don’t normally leave reviews, but i was so pleased with the service that I have been persuaded. I only wanted a couple of mirrors put up and a door planing down because it was sticking, remedial tasks but he got them all done within an hour – the best £25 I have ever spent! I took a few business cards and have recommended Go To Handyman to anyone who has asked about getting odd jobs done, you know the usual story – do you know anyone who can do this or do that? Now i can say “actually I do” – Thank you.
