First off I had better say that I am in the Whangarei area. As a single person I often have to rely on handymen.Because tradesmen often try to rip me off (because I am a woman on her own) I end up using the likes of `Hire A Hubby' who were always pleasant and reasonably priced.However, in recent weeks I wasn't able to get help for a few maintenance jobs and then I spied an advertisement for `AB FAB' The man from "AB FAB House Maintenance Services" came along and gave me a free, unconditional quote - and provided me with written references.He fixed the things that needed fixing and his bill was VERY reasonable.I have since referred "AB FAB" to several other people who have all come back to me to say how good a job was done and how cheap he was.My poor old neighbour didn't learn about my new handyman until it was too late. She got someone in who charged her $90 to change an outside tap washer. Anyway, if anyone in the Whangarei area needs an honest, reliable workman who does a good job (and takes his mess away with him) I would highly recommend Quinn Patterson of AB FAB House Maintenance Services.And no, he's not a relation. I wish he was then it would cost me nothing to get my little jobs done. Quinn does everything from changing a light bulb to plumbing and electrical work and he is happy to come and give you a free quote. I think honest, reliable and reasonably priced tradesmen need to be referred on.

Thank you very kindly for this glowing testimonial.
I always do my best- that's the way I was raised to do things.

Quinn, I couldn't find your name on the public register of certified electricians?
I'm sorry, but I have only just noticed your question here.
If you had perhaps used Google & found 1 of my websites, you could have emailed me directly?
I am not a certified Electrician, I'm a Maintenance Contractor.
I do have certified contractors (Electricians, Plumbers, Drain Layers, Carpenters etc.) on my specialist contractors list, whom I call on when particular expertise is required.
I trust this adequately answers your query.
