Chris did an amazing job! Bought a new washing machine that's too big to fit through the door. He removed the door and move the 100kg washing machine to the laundry room. Very quick response and couldn't be any happier. Thanks Chris!

Chris was prompt, professional and a pleasure to work with. He took on a varied set of jobs and knocked each and every one of them out of the park, easily adapting to unforeseen challenges and circumstances at a very reasonable price. Very easy to recommend.

Chris responded to my Oneflare request and did a wonderful job installing a dishwasher and stovetop.My kitchen layout presented challenges for both installatiions but Chris and his electrician John met the challenges understanding that aesthetics are as important as functionality! Chris also adapted ( off his own bat) a cupboard door for me which has allowed me much greater access to a previously useless corner cupboard. I would highly recommend Chris as a competent, industrious, personable handyman. Read more

Through Oneflare I was sent a number of options on handymen and as soon as I spoke with Chris I knew I'd found somebody very special. Chris is a lateral thinker, no job is too small, too big, or too complicated for him to work out. He is highly skilled in absolutely everything from carpentry to cabinet work, installation of appliances, flooring, plumbing... to be honest, there wasn't a single thing in all 20 jobs he completed for us which he didn't know how to fix, or knew the right person to assist him. He also has a remarkable array of high quality tools which made me feel even more comfortable with what he was doing. Chris is not only a genuinely nice person with a highly positive attitude but his quotes were extremely reasonable, he was on time, incredibly efficient and his work was of an exceptionally high standard. Seriously folks, if you have a bunch of things which need doing, or a single large job. Chris Jones is your man. Thank you Oneflare for pointing me to a person who has made such a dramatic difference to our home. Jobs which would have required multiple tradies at high call out prices were done quickly, neatly and Chris always cleaned up - all at very reasonable prices. If anybody would like to speak with me about Chris' work I am more than happy to communicate on email - please send any questions to email@example.com Read more
