How can I help you?

If you are looking for a handyman, the likelihood is you don't have the time, skills, motivation or maybe the physical ability required to undertake a task yourself. Or perhaps you are in a remote location trying to arrange help for a family member in the Eaglescliffe or Yarm area. You're seeking someone who has the time, skills and motivation in addition to being honest, reliable and respectful. You want to feel reassured while this handyman works in and around your home or the home of those you care about. Finally, you want all this for a fair and reasonable price.

My name is Tony Costello and I'm the handyman you're looking for. I'm a retired local police officer with a 33 year distinguished and decorated career; one during which I helped thousands of local people, often in their home, at a vulnerable time in their lives when trustworthiness was imperative. Prior to policing, I served my apprenticeship as a mechanical engineer.

Away from my professional career and now in my mid 50's, I've accrued nearly 40 yrs of hands on experience and knowledge in home repair, maintenance, painting & decorating, computer & smart home tech installation, automotive repair and general odd-jobs. Some recent examples include;
