    Depends exactly what you need doing, but I've always used these guys to move house and they've been great. They also do other moving work.

    Probably not ideal if you're looking for a really cheap quick job, but they were great the two times I used them.

    Lino, as ever, is great. His number should be on the thread somewhere.

    Hi all
    Just wanted to give a recommendation as I have finally found a new (good) decorator. His name is John 07578 256628.
    I thought he was very reasonable and did a great job of our external windows and some brickwork, He does inside too. Great attention to detail, does the little extra things that make a difference, reliable and really nice friendly chap. He also does other general small building work.
    And as an added bonus he allowed me to practice my terrible Spanish and even texted me in Spanish so I could practice!

    Hi all,

    Are there any small appliance repair shops in Brixton or Clapham or anywhere else nearby? I've got a portable dehumidifier which has given up, I think probably just an internal fuse gone. Don't want to pay an appliance engineer to come out though, as it will end up costing more than the unit did in the first place...

    Any recommendations?

    Thanks in advance.

    Not in Wimbledon, but Tooting of course!

    I've never seem so many machines in one place! And the proprietor (complete with fat cigar and sheepskin coat!) told me there's another 3 warehouses full!

    Recommend Maurice as a plumber (07720648273); turned up within 2 hours to fix a leaky toilet and some leaky taps; efficient, very friendly and good value.

    While I'm here, I should also recommend the best and nicest electrician Denis Fournier of SW9 Electrics (07912220169).

    Fortress locks on Brixton hill were good, repaired the spring on an old victorian bathroom lock in just a few minutes. I took it up there, so no idea about call-out.

    Please recommend me a carpet shop and fitters. I've been burnt by the likes of carpetright in the past where the fitters are subcontracted, then demand extra, do a shoddy job anyway only for the shop to deny all responsibility.

    Anyone got any experience of Picture House Interiors in the old Streatham cinema? They look kosher, but I'm a bit put off by the yahoo email address?

    May go with floorsforthought in Cla'am junction - despite the puntastic name: they did a good job for me about 5 years ago, but may not be the best value.

    PS - in reply to a 3 year old carpet disposal question - I can confirm that Vale Street does take carpet - you need to not be in a van and need proof of Lambeth address. The secret password to the magic question "is it commercial" is "no'
