What are Handyperson services?

Tempus provides management services for buildings across the country and one of our most popular services is providing a handyperson. While the tasks a handyperson completes are not often considered to be ‘big’ jobs, they still require the work of skilled tradesmen in order to be completed.

Here are a few examples of the tasks and work that our handyperson service can cover

General maintenance

This can include anything from unplugging blocked toilets to cleaning communal work areas. Our handyperson will be on-site to identify any issues and resolve them as soon as they arise.

Vacant property inspections

Vacant property inspections are sometimes necessary for insurance purposes. A Tempus handyperson can visit your site and check for leaks, burst pipes or signs of a break-in. Whilst on your property, our handyperson can also perform easy maintenance tasks, such as replacing light bulbs or fixing broken door handles.

Energy efficiency checks

In large offices, it’s important to make sure that heat and electricity aren’t being wasted. Our handyperson will make sure that energy-efficient bulbs and radiator heat reflectors are being used correctly to reduce the energy bill.

Painting and decorating

If a meeting room needs a lick of paint, you won’t need to bother your employees or hire a specialist decorator. A trained handyperson has the skills to decorate rooms to your specification.

Holiday cover, additional site support and quality control

If your site manager is busy or absent, our handyperson service can provide cover for your team members. We have the experience to fit seamlessly into your team and stand-in for caretakers or operators on your site.

If you’re going through a busy period and need additional support on your site, we can supply you with additional team members to help with tasks. Whether it’s painting and decorating your building or simply moving tables and chairs around, our handypeople can help.

Whilst attending a site to provide support, our handyperson can also provide quality control on existing site members. We have provided management of on-site operatives for previous clients as we are qualified and experienced in ensuring health and safety compliance.

Property caretaking services

Our handyperson services extend to taking care of your property over breaks and holidays. We provide a 24/7/365 service, so you can have a property caretaker on your site to make sure your facilities will be clean and ready for you when you return. This really does mean any time of the day or year.

The benefits of handyperson services

There are many advantages to having a handyperson in your workplace, particularly if you work in a large facility with lots of employees. These kinds of busy settings are likely to need little repairs here and there due to the general wear and tear caused by a bustling working environment. A handyperson is an excellent cost-effective way of dealing with non-urgent tasks around your building.


A handyperson is useful because of their versatile skill set which allows them to complete a number of odd jobs and tasks around sites. Whether you need furniture assembled, a room redecorated or new light fixtures fitted, an all-in-one handyperson will be able to complete the work.

This means you won’t have to hire individual contractors for each individual task, which will save you time and money.

Preventing expensive repair costs

Having a handyperson on-site means that they’ll be able to assess other areas of your building to make sure that equipment is in good working order. Our handypeople are specialists in maintaining appliances and systems and can identify any potential problems that might cause your assets to break down.

We often ‘triage’ non-urgent callouts until there are enough issues at the site to warrant a handyperson being on-site for a full day. This is far more cost-effective than raising individual callouts.

By preemptively tackling these issues, we can help you to try and avoid expensive repair costs. Regular maintenance is key to keeping your systems and equipment in good working order.


The whole point of reactive maintenance is that you need a solution and quickly. By appointing all of the tasks which need completing to a handyperson, you remove the need to involve other people in these repair and maintenance tasks. Instead of hiring ten individual contractors to perform ten jobs, you can hire one handyperson who can do them all. Your employees can focus on their own work while our handyperson diligently completes all of the jobs around your building or site that need completing.

End of maintenance reports

At the end of our attendance, we will provide you with a full report detailing our activities and tasks completed. These reports will explain the work that we have done while on your property. We will also include any areas of your site that may need follow-up work at some point in the future to proactively prevent any further issues.

What is reactive maintenance?

Reactive maintenance is the repair of equipment or assets that have already broken down. The goal of reactive maintenance is to return the equipment to a working condition as quickly as possible. Usually, planned preventive maintenance is put into place to help stop this from happening. However, unexpected incidents or accidents can still happen. In these situations, it’s essential to get your equipment up and running as quickly as possible.

The problem with reactive maintenance is that you never know when you’re going to need it. It could be over the weekend when you’re closed or it could be at peak operating hours. You need to know that when you’re in an emergency, someone will be there to help get you back on track.

We provide a call-out service to deliver emergency reactive maintenance and repairs. You can have the peace of mind that we’ll always be there when you need us the most. We are available for reactive maintenance 24/7/365, so if you have a break-in at midnight or a burst pipe that is leaking into a neighbouring property, you can call us at any hour.
