Franchise Owner, Jim Kline is backed by his company’s award winning service.
As homeowners, most of us will need to find a source for all our home repair and remodeling needs. Wouldn’t it make our lives much simpler to be able to call the same phone number to help you with anything you need done around the house?
In a sense, that’s what Handyman Connection does. This heralded company has achieved numerous top rankings as the best, one-call option for home repair and remodeling projects.
Franchise owner, Jim Kline proudly affirms the company’s 160 U.S. and Canadian operations that have served over one million customers to date. His franchise is backed by an award-winning history “The Original Home Improvement Specialists” that began in Cincinnati, Ohio many years ago.
Kline returns to Oklahoma after retirement from an engineering position and managing a Handyman Connection franchise in Memphis, Tennessee. He speaks of his business with the pride one would expect from a skilled craftsman upon completing a project.
Handyman Connection specializes in small- to medium-sized repairs and remodeling tasks, bringing their specialized approach to each assignment.
The company’s franchise operations form a network that offers highly skilled home improvement options to their customers. All of the craftsmen are skilled professionals with a minimum of 10 years experience. The craftsmen are all licensed if required, bonded and insured. Kline confirms, “They are skilled professionals, backed by our corporate one year written guarantee on all their work.”
Unfortunately, we’ve all heard of home-repair scandals. Kline cautions consumers to know who they are hiring to do any work around the home and reminds them, “We do thorough background checks on all our craftsmen, allowing no criminal histories.”
When workers arrive on the job they must present a copy of the company’s credentials. They also present a personal business card identifying them as a craftsman associated with Handyman Connection.
Everytime you use Handyman Connection, there are several consistencies to expect. “There are no down payments required, you receive a follow-up call by our office staff and a guarantee on every job,” Kline says.
Additional benefits of Handyman Connection is savings related. Kline explains, “… passing my corporate discounts on to the customer for purchasing materials or repair supplies.”
With one call to the company’s local franchise office during business hours, you can schedule an appointment through a professional customer representative. They will assign an appropriate craftsman for your specific need(s).
They have craftsmen with the skills needed for just about any household job including plumbing, interior trim and carpentry, painting, remodeling, drywall installation and electrical work. And all that is required from you is one simple call and a description of the assistance you need.
Handyman Connection will assign a craftsman specializing in the job requested, he will come to your home, provide a complete evaluation of the project and be ready to do your work right away.
