Put up two Swift bird boxes


Jim turned up when others had let me down. He was up for the slightly strange nature of the job I needed doing - installing two swift boxes under the eaves of my house.
His communication was swift (sorry) and he was very reliable, informal, confident in what he was doing and very reasonably priced. It was a bad year for the Swifts, so no occupants yet - but I’ve since had Jim back for other jobs, and have more lined up, so if it does happen, hopefully he’ll get to see it. He even said he thought he might put up some swift boxes himself - so we’ve managed to do our bit for nature too...
Friendly, reliable, confident, and fair priced. Not much else you could ask for in a handyman.

    Swifts are wonderful, and we can greatly boost their numbers with a simple fix.
