The Handyman Van saw an increase in bookings as people spent more time at home. Many focused on home improvement and repair work to improve their surroundings.
Originally launched in 2017 by Lymington-based entrepreneur Brennan Watt, the Handyman Van provides a single point of contact for all maintenance and improvement services, including plumbing, electrical and joinery work, as well as plastering, painting and decorating, tiling and general craft support .
The service now extends from Bournemouth to Chichester to Salisbury and Winchester and will roll out nationwide in 2021.
