We are an independent charitable organisation working across the Lancashire boroughs of Preston, South Ribble, West Lancashire and Chorley.

Comments from consumers who have used this trader
I have used the handyperson service a few times over the past 6 months to do little jobs around my home that i would not be able to get a contractor to do. E.G Fit toilet seat, assemble flat pack plant holders, change light bulb etc. To not have to worry about these small jobs and repairs makes it less stressful and makes me feel more independent, contented and reassured that they will get done to a very high level.
I have used Preston Care & Repair numerous times over the past 20 years for a variety of work through the handyperson service and for advice on larger repairs. It is so reassuring to know that i can call them whenever needed.
We had our shed roof re-felted through the handyperson service. We would use this service again and recommend to all of our friends. My husband and I worry about finding reliable tradespeople who we can trust in our home. Preston Care & Repair have given us peace of mind with the repairs we require. The staff treated us and our home with respect we felt valued and that our opinion mattered with regards to the work on the shed. Knowing they are only a phone call away is a massive relief!
Used the handyperson service as my pop up plug from my kitchen sink had gone missing. The handyman visited the property and replaced the plug for me. The service makes me feel less worried about having repairs done at my home.
Door plates were replaced on 5 internal doors. A wonderful and excellent service. The handyman was very conscientious. I feel safer and more secure in my home, I feel at a less risk of a fall or accident in my home.
I contacted Preston Care & Repair as I was struggling to find a plumber to replace the washer on the outside tap. The handyperson replaced the washer quickly and due to funding I was only charged the cost of the tap washer. I am no longer worried about finding a trusted Handyperson as I know I can now ring Preston Care & Repair.
I had 5 handles replaced on a chest of drawers through the handyperson service. An appointment slot was given in advance with the name of the handyperson who would be completing the work.
