Switch and Outlet Repair
Jody is amazing. He figured out and addressed the issue quickly, educated my tenant and myself about certain things we were unclear on about un-grounded outlets and wiring in old buildings and he also does other work like plumbing that I've been needing somebody to help me with. I've got my new handyman now. Was super impressed.Sep 14, 2018Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My basic pricing system is simple. I charge by the hour but I have a minimum for the first hour to cover truck and travel costs. I do not have an elaborate system of fuel, milage, or other surcharges. I only ask the customer to pay for their materials in which I usually always can buy up front and disposal fees of larger items if we can take them. I have a house flipping and renovating background so I understand how to save money, find solutions, and make things work when possible.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?New customers are the greatest. They give me the opportunity to meet and hopefully make new connections with great people. As a new customer you must feel like I have your best interest in mind. It is my responsibility to provide or recommend only the services the customer needs, not push non-essential services just to increase a bill. I do, however, look for safety concerns or things that might be an easy fix while I'm there, like a door that doesn't close quite right. I believe this shows my devotion to my customer service and safety. I enjoy providing a new customer with quality service and making sure they are comfortable enough to ask me back.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?20+ years of having to do it myself and figure it out, but more importantly, pay attention when someone shows you. It helps when you enjoy the learning process. I like to live by "work smarter not harder."
