Jeremy Cote of J.Cote’s Home & Property Maintenance, aka the Grand Falls Handyman, makes good on his promise that, for those living in northwestern New Brunswick, he is the only handyman you’ll ever need.
Insured and registered, Grand Falls Handyman specializes in the following:
- Leaks and clogs
- Electrical installations and repairs
- Switches and dimmers
- Property management
- Decks and patios
- And flooring
We here at Time2GetOnline recently had the pleasure of talking with Jeremy one-on-one about what he brings to the table… and how he has built a reputation of trust, reliability, and quality services.
What sets Grand Falls Handyman apart is that I try to be as fair as possible to everybody. I do have a standard service charge, which I rarely ever use; if someone calls me over because they have a leaky deck, for example, and I’m there for five minutes, I don’t charge them for an hour’s worth of work. Oftentimes, I won’t charge them at all.
Affordable Handyman Services in Grand Falls Where and When You Need Them
“What sets Grand Falls Handyman apart is that I try to be as fair as possible to everybody,” Jeremy says. “I do have a standard service charge, which I rarely ever use; if someone calls me over because they have a leaky deck, for example, and I’m there for five minutes, I don’t charge them for an hour’s worth of work. Oftentimes, I won’t charge them at all.”
He cites affordability as the main reason for offering stop-in services, as he prides himself on being primarily referral-based. “In the long run, it gives me the opportunity to meet somebody, who then refers me to somebody else,” he explains.
Although Grand Falls Handyman is currently booked through until the end of July, Jeremy encourages those who need “quick fixes” to continue to give him a call. “Just yesterday, for example,” Jeremy says, “someone phoned me up: they had just bought a toilet and needed to install it. Now, that takes me about fifteen minutes (or less.)
Customers don’t have to book me for that; I just come by as soon as I have a minute that I can do it. Or today, someone called me about a bathroom sink that they wanted replaced. Because it takes me fifteen minutes or less, while I was waiting for my flooring I went over, swapped the sinks, and came right back. I’m not saying no to many jobs! For jobs that take more than a few days, customers should call me in advance so we can make the time.”
The Benefits of Being Bilingual
On top of Jeremy’s handyman experience is his fluency in both French and English. “I’m from a bilingual family: my mother is French and my father is English. When I was younger, we moved to Florida for about four years where, at home, I was forced to only speak French. At school, it was English and Spanish. Afterwards, when my family moved back here to Canada, it continued to be fully French at home and fully bilingual at school.”
This is particularly handy when helping customers with Cyclo Vac central vacuums, of which Jeremy is a licensed reseller. Cyclo Vac central vacuums help to simplify housework with its wide variety of attachments, including retractable hoses, and advantageous warranties. These vacuums can be installed in either a new construction or an existing residence.
“The big thing with the Central Vacuums is that I did take a course on them,” says Jeremy. “[One of the vacuums’ key benefits] is their centralized motors; I personally have a background in how to repair these motors at a very low cost. I’m also equipped to have warranties on all the vacuums (including vacuums that aren’t from my company), so there’s a big bonus in that. A lot of other retailers usually have to send vacuums away to get them serviced, whereas I service the vacuums right there in the customer’s home.”
What Grand Falls Handyman is Offering Carleton and Victoria Counties This Spring
“Grand Falls Handyman has gotten a lot of requests for window washing this Spring, if you can believe it or not,” Jeremy says light-heartedly. “Also straight-up property cleaning. I have brushes that clip on to my tractors in order to clean driveways and lawns in no time at all; I then haul the debris away for the customer. On top of those, I get bookings for decks, windows, and roofing.”
As the Grand Falls Handyman tagline goes, “Big or small, I do it all.” Call Jeremy at Grand Falls Handyman today to put your to-do list in good hands.
