Our Go-To Handymen in Hong Kong

26 June, 2017

For when you need a helping hand

 

Whether you’ve lived in Hong Kong your whole live or are relatively new to the city, finding someone to help with those odd jobs around the house can be tricky. We’re strong independent ladies, but ask us to do electrical work or to fix some tiling and we’re definitely no dab hands. So, we thought it was about time to round up a list of some of our favourite (tried and tested) Hong Kong handymen. Whether your home is in need of lick of paint, you have an urgent repair to see to, or just need some help hanging your pictures, these guys will have you covered…and yes, some can even help with assembling and moving furniture!
