    Not exactly a tradesman query I know, but a friend of mine is interested in the services of a reputable life coach, who would be ideally based around Brixton/Herne Hill/Dulwich. Please PM me with any suggestions.

    Hello all

    I'm looking for a reliable and affordable man & van combo, to assist with a flat move next week. I'd previously used a local chap named Colin, who I found to be great, but I'm not sure if he's still operating. If anyone has any recommendations, I'd appreciate it. Ideally someone who doesn't mind actually pitching in with the loading as well as the driving.

    Thanks in advance...

    Can anyone recommend a quality roofing company? After years of putting it off, it's time to bite the bullet and fix the leaks!

    Lino, based in East Dulwich / Herne Hill on Zero 7 9 6 2 2 4 7 4 6 9 has always been really good when I've moved house (once with a broken leg). Just make sure he knows how much stuff you've got to take - he normally pops round to take a guestimate of time / hands.

    Hello all,

    Can anyone recommend a carpenter/builder who can deal with floorboards? It should be a fairly small job.

    Many thanks

    Looking for a reasonable man with a van to get a 2 seater sofa from Putney to Penge if anyone has any recommendations - as most of the ones on this thread seem to be for fully fledged removal. ta

    If you haven't found one, try Lino - his number's on here somewhere, or I can PM it to you.

    I need a window cleaner in Herne Hill, who's willing to climb a ladder. Is there such a thing anymore?

    Call out for a plumber/plumbing company who can handle a fairly big job (replacing loft tank & pipes) and are cheaper than Pimlico Plumbers! (probably not hard)

    Does anyone know of any plumbers who are reliable and will do smallish jobs? Our kitchen sink outlet appears to be blocked and we've tried various methods from sink unblocking fluid, bleach, hot water and taking the pipes apart to try and sort it. Took 5 cocking hours for the sink to drain after doing the washing up last night :rolleyes:

    Ta :)

    It will be the solenoid - the electrical switch on the inlet of the washing machine - it would cost about £7.50 and you could replace it yourself if about half an hour

    It isn't closing properly and letting water drip into the machine like a leaky tap.

    Can you checked outside where it empties that it isn't blocked there. Another way to tackle it is by removing the U bend and using a thick spring wire called a snake that you'll get from somewhere like Blissets at the Kennington end of Brixton Road. Feed the snake into the open end of the pipe rotating it as you do, fiddle the snake round the corners of the pipe and twist it into any blokage, if you can't push through it you have to try to pull it back. Stinky greasy unoleasant job that you need patience for. Or about £90 to pay someone else to do it!

    My other half did all that. It was a bit better for a week but now it's worse. Think this needs a professional annoyingly!

    e2a - my other half is out of the country at the mo and I'm completely unpractical about this stuff so figure I'd better get someone to look at it as it's getting on my tits quite frankly :mad::oops:
