Welcome To Dial Dave

I originally trained as an Electronics Technician and have a BTEC Diploma in Telecommunications (Marine). After a number of years working in the oil industry, I made the decision to move into the Humanitarian Sector. Having spent more than ten years solving problems for charities in Africa Asia, South America and the Middle East, I decided it was time to spend more time in my adopted home of Northumberland and put my experience and logistical skills to use serving the local community.

Dial Dave Handyman Service is based in Amble, Northumberland and serves the local area.

Id like to offer you thanks for coming over to Howick recently. As part of my ongoing maintenance list of things to do. I needed a handyman and your prompt action and attention was much appreciated. A thorough, expert and forward thinking approach was required to address the appliance installation and my thinking was that it may be a while before all would be well although you managed to dispel any dilemma in the shortest time possible, one cup of coffee and a digestive in fact! Thank you once again Dave, your help was much appreciated and I have no hesitation in recommending the handyman services of yourself or your company.

Dave, collected and delivered a sofa for me. It turned out not to be the easiest job when the sofa refused to fit through the doorway. Undeterred, Dave expertly removed the sash window, delivered the sofa to my living room, and sorted the sash all in less than an hour. He was on time, reasonably priced, and cleaned up. Most importantly he had the can-do attitude required. I’ll definitely use him again.

I use Dave Cook to do fitting work for me on Kitchens and both myself and clients find him great to work with. The clients appreciate the way that he tidies up as he goes along, and I find that if he hits a problem he will always come up with a solution quite quickly. I would recommend him to do any DIY work around the home.

Dave is always willing to pop round when I have a problem in the house. He installed my dishwasher, put together some wardrobes for me, fixed my gate, and my washing line.

Dave came down to Northampton for a week to get my rental property ready to rent again. The previous tenants had left it in a right mess so there was lots to do. In just five days dave managed to do all the necessary repairs and decorate it inside and out to a high standard. Thanks Dave.

Dave has done two new bathrooms for me, one in London and one in Cambridge. I am an artist so I am very particular about the design stage, but Dave was very flexible and managed to build the bathrooms to my specifications. The standard of workmanship is excellent, Dave isn’t happy unless everything is just right.
Anna Wray, Cambridge
After Dave did such a nice job taking out our bath and putting in a shower, we decided to get him to build our conservatory that we bought from B&Q. I was worried about my garden when the foundations were being built, but the work was done without disturbing it too much. Dave did a great job of tidying up after the work was done.

After completing a number of improvements in my home I was delighted with the outcome and all work completed to a high standard. I wouldn’t hesitate to ‘Dial Dave’ for any job, big or small. 10/10!
Mrs Stevens, Amble
Having recently moved house, ‘Dial Dave’ was an absolute godsend for me. Dave can turn his hand to practically anything and everything. He works quietly, quickly and efficiently and is always polite and self-effacing. I would recommend him to anyone in need of a Handyman.
Jan S, Amble
Dave put together a large cabinet from IKEA which probably would have taken
my husband and I all day to do. He has also tackled lots of other jobs for us, which would never normally get done. Dave has a very professional manner and I would recommend his services to anybody.
