Items that can be repaired include those that can be carried under a person’s arm, such as small appliances and other electrical items and any manuals or instructions that came with it, ceramics, clocks and wooden and metal items.

It is also recommended those with an item needing attention bring paper and pen for taking notes, a camera to take pictures, gloves and receptacles of some kind to keep parts sorted.

These services are free, though there may be costs associated with supplies or repair parts.

Standard pandemic-related precautions will be in effect, including:

• Attendance is restricted to three guests maximum;

• Those with cold/flu symptoms should not attend;

• Those who have been asked to self-isolate should not attend;

• Visitors should bring hand sanitizer and wear a face covering.

For Housecall Handyman services by appointment, a person can visit your home and help with something that can’t be moved (i.e. a door hinge).
