Myhandyman.help are a Newhaven, East Sussex based Handyman service covering all areas of Sussex.

Are you finding it hard to get around to that ‘to do’ list of home improvement or maintenance tasks? Or perhaps you’ve had a minor home emergency that needs fixing pronto. Whichever the case, Myhandyman.help are here to help. We work across Sussex and provide an expert pair of hands to do the jobs you can’t or don’t have time for.

Myhandyman.help was set up by Michael Derrick, who has over 20 years of experience in the home improvement business. We pride ourselves on being reliable, efficient and good value for money. No job is too big or small; you can hire us for one-off tasks or get us in for the day to tick a number of jobs off your list.

We charge a reasonable hourly or daily rate. If you aren’t sure how much time your work will need, simply give us a call and we’ll put together an estimate for you. If the work takes more time than expected we’ll do our very best to accommodate you and can always arrange a second visit if needed.

Kitchen saved in time for Christmas

"Myhandyman.help was great. My original kitchen fitter let me down. Myhandyman picked up and rebuilt kitchen fresh and worked over Christmas. It is now fantastic and would not have been possible. Regards Andrew Farmiloe"

Extension. Kitchen and patio

"Michael did a big extension, kitchen and patio for me. He put in an etxra cupboard and other little touches in the kitchen that were not on the plans but he knew they would look better and they do. My kitchen is amazing. He always done a full day's work and always kept the place nice and tidy at the end of the day. My patio is great I couldn't use the garden before now I can. He was recommended to me by a friend of a friend cause he done a very big job on her house a few years ago. She was very please with his work. I'm very glad she did. I would highly recommend him to anyone and if I need anymore work done I would get him back to do it."
