Have you ever hired a handyman because your neighbour said he did such a good job? But you’re your job went wrong… again? We founded MrFix because we were fed up with even the simplest jobs going totally wrong because of bad workmanship, missed appointments and missing invoices.

MrFix helps your home repair job run smoothly. We use technology cleverly for your convenience. For example, we create a WhatsApp group for each job so you have direct contact with your expert, he shares ‘Before’ & ‘After’ photos and we email his invoice with a credit card payment link. For most Customers our service is incredibly easy to use. But what if you’re over 90 and don’t have an email address, let alone a smartphone or computer?
