    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.
    Kindest regards,

    Quinn, I couldn’t find your name on the public register of certified electricians?
    Bob. 😕

    Hi Bob,
    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.:D
    Kind regards,
