We Are Hiring Handymen!

Handyman St Louis services at FIX STLThe world has gotten so crazy, maybe I’m not supposed to use words like this anymore — but I’ll say it anyway. For those of you we’ve served, you probably noticed that the staff of Fix St Louis consists of LADIES and GENTLEMEN. For you younger folks out there, let me save you the effort of running to the dictionary. ‘Ladies’ and ‘gentlemen’ are well-mannered and considerate people with high standards of proper behavior.

But, they’re a lot more than that, too. While you might think of our technicians as JACKS of all trades, they are actually MASTERS of all trades.

Now you might think that with our country’s unemployment and labor non-participation rates being as high as they are, and the construction industry as weak as it has been, we’d have no trouble finding folks who meet our high standards. But, you’d be wrong. In fact, the only place where we can consistently recruit such technicians is from the ranks of Ranken Technical College, a unique institution that is one of St. Louis’ most unsung assets, and with whom we enjoy a close association.

While we are proud to be a bright spot in an otherwise dismal economy, continuing our rapid growth, we are dependent upon finding great, long-term employees to sustain this growth.

So, if you or your family knows a youthful, energetic lady or gentleman who is looking for a better opportunity, enjoys the challenge of fixing things and making them look as good as new, and understands the dignity of working as a professional in a highly-valued trade, let us know! Please have them send their resume to sboriss@gmail.com.

Garage Storage Space: Add Over-Your-Head Storage Space Without Adding Overhead 

Next time you pull into your garage, look-up. Chances are you’ll be looking at one of two things: 1) some rafters and the underside of a roof; or 2) a ceiling with a hatch last passed-through by your home inspector when you bought your house.

Now, just imagine there’s plywood on top of those rafters or behind that ceiling that could support the weight of things you’d put in storage. And imagine there’s a rope hanging down from the ceiling that, when pulled, lowered a folding ladder you could climb to get up there, bringing with you items you want to store. This added garage storage space will make your life so much easier.

We at Fix St Louis could make all of that happen. But, what type of stuff would you put up there?

So, go to the room in your house where you store all the stuff you never use. Utually these items are always in the way of the stuff you DO use, but that you don’t want to throw away. Things like cribs and baby items you’re hanging onto as you wait for your first grandchild; extra carpet you might need if Queen Elizabeth is planning a visit and there’s a bad stain that won’t come out; that small refrigerator from your kid’s dorm room that seems too valuable to throw away even though you have no reason to believe you will ever need it again.

THOSE are the things that make great candidates for that Fix St Louis-built storage space. (Although maybe some of them are an even better reason to call Goodwill or 1-800-GOT-JUNK? Just sayin’).

But unlike paying each month for a storage locker, this over-your-head storage does not add to your overhead. Give us a call today, and stop tripping over that too-hard-to-part-with stuff! These storage units will make your garages effiecine, functional, and orderly.

For a Better First Impression, Think Outside the Mailbox

unnamedIt’s one of life’s great mysteries. Why do so many people living in upscale subdivisions have mailboxes fit for an Old West ghost town? Posts are slanted like old tombstones, mailboxes are rusted, and the posts look like something you’d hitch a horse to.

They spend so much time and money on flower beds, siding, and exterior painting, and yet the very 1st thing that 1st time visitors see, when finding the house for the 1st time, is a mailbox that makes a bad 1st impression.
