And what sort of thing would I search for to try and find such a company do you think?? Have ordered a shed/playhouse type thing and wondered if there would be someone I could hire for a few hours/half a day to put the thing up and maybe paint it.... any ideas?
yes, as MrsSnaplegs says, it's the kind of thing you will find advertised in your local paper. could try Yellow Pages as well, or if you get a free directory of local businesses through your door like we do. You're looking for one man (person?) with no overheads rather than a company, I think. I have definitely recently seen 'flatpack construction' in there with 'gutters cleaned, small repairs, painting' on handyman adverts.
