Re: Electrician, handyman with small van [Zurich/Aargau]

Recently have moved to zurich and was struggling in finding a handyman - thank god for sites like this. I was a bit skepitcal about this all as I've never done this but wow what I can say; Jose came to fix my sofa bed and what can I say. He was very quick efficient and very polite. He came in and got on with his job. I would really recommend him. His coming back to do my blinds and my wardrobe. If anything is needed after this I would call him in a instant. Go for it guys you will not be disappointed. Thanks again Jose and see you soon.
Happy customer!

He also came to my apartment and did a good job fitting the track for the blinds and installing the lighting.

I'd thoroughly recommend him.

He's coming back to mine soon to help with hanging pictures and assembling flat pack furniture.

Re: Electrician, handyman [ZH / AG / LU / ZG]

I arranged with Jose (ofx) to come to my apartment to help with 4 ceiling fixtures and it was really a pleasant experience. He was by far the best handyman in my moving experience, few highlights that really mattered to me:

- Was very responsive in communication before coming and scheduled a time as i wanted soon enough (within 2 days).
- He came on time, had all the needed equipments, take off shoes without me asking for it, very clean while working, i didn't have to clean afterwards despite the fact that we were drilling for 4 lamps.
- He is very accurate, efficient and doesn't get bored to get the work done really to the pixel.
- During work he doesn't talk about other customers who were unpleasant or bargaining, etc.

In general i was quite happy and totally recommend him.

Re: Electrician, handyman [ZH / AG / LU / ZG]

We got Jose's services to install some lamps, fix a cupboard to the wall, and things went super smooth.

Jose was on time, he had his own gear (step ladder, hooks, connectors, etc.), was pleasant, calm (we had a crying newborn who was going completely berserk), and super efficient.

I would recommend him. Either PM him on EF, or email his gmail address, if you have it.

Re: Electrician, handyman [ZH / AG / LU / ZG]

Jose fitted several ceiling lights and also built some furniture for my apartment in Thalwil. He was very professional and completed the job very quickly to a high standard, even offering to hoover the floor for me afterwards. Highly recommended and will definitely contact him again. Thanks Jose!

Re: Electrician, handyman [ZH / AG / LU / ZG]

Zug - Another very satisfied customer.
Jose came to hang a huge painting and to fix the new lighting for it and
whilst here did several smaller jobs I had been putting off.... (did it really take me four years to put some coat hangers up...!!)

Very punctual, pleasant and efficient and a sensible pricing model.

Re: Electrician, handyman [ZH / AG / LU / ZG]

Hello all

Seriously look no further if you need an electrician!
Jose is efficient, highly professional and at low cost.
He came last week after responding to our 'cry for help' inmediately.
He fitted 10 lights to our ceiling super fast and very efficiently while all the while our kids were chatting to him full of questions and he was extremely patient and nice to them

Thanks a lot again Jose and thanks EF for providing the platform to get all the information we need.




Thanks so much for everything Jose!

Re: Electrician, handyman [ZH / AG / LU / ZG]

Another thumbs up for Jose!

He came last weekend to disassemble/reassemble some Ikea furniture, move some furniture, fit light fixtures and some other small jobs. Jose's work is quick with impeccable standards and he is very clear with prices which are fair and very reasonable. I would recommend him without hesitation especially if you are looking for an electrician and someone who can help with other odd jobs.

Thanks again Jose for making my move a lot easier! I will be recommending you by word of mouth also!

We also want to put some more good words for Jose. We called him to fix 6 ceiling lights and it all went smoothly and pretty quickly.

10/10 will call him again if we need similar services. Thanks again Jose!

Re: Electrician, handyman [ZH / AG / LU / ZG]

Had Jose install light fixtures at my place recently.
he went to the store, sent me options, gave me ample time to choose, and came over and installed them.
great service, great price.
cannot recommend him enough!

Re: Electrician, handyman [ZH / AG / LU / ZG]

We had Jose come by a couple of months ago and take care of a bunch of odd jobs, lights, sinks and hanging heavy frames and other items.
He was superb, he goes to 11.
He is the third handyman I have found on the forum and he is by far the best and also totally patient with our over excited dog.
A great find!

Re: Electrician, handyman [ZH / AG / LU / ZG]

Everything said about Jose is true and very well deserved.

Importantly he gives transparency on what your options are and helps you find the BEST solution - that alone places him at the top - but he is also a nice guy and skilled.

Highly recommended.

Re: Electrician, handyman [ZH / AG / LU / ZG]

I had a bigger job than normal - a complete rewiring of my kitchen as part of a renovation. Jose did all the electrical work to the specifications defined by the kitchen company, including all necessary cutting in the walls and drilling through the floor to run new circuits. At the same time I had him gut and completely redo the main electrical panel in the house, and I must say the quality of wiring inside the panel is now way more professional than what it was before he started.

Jose pays attention to details, because he knows they are important. I absolutely recommend him without any hesitation. Thanks Jose!

Re: Electrician, handyman [ZH / AG / LU / ZG]

I had a need for Jose again when i wanted to install the "flying" shelves for my printer, next to my bed etc.
Once again I cannot recommend him enough.

Re: Electrician, handyman [ZH / AG / LU / ZG]

Jose was very quickly available to install a few lamps in my new flat. He was friendly, speaks English and was quick to install as well. He'll charge an hourly rate and includes his travel charges so it's very transparent and no unexpected surprises. Compared to other electrician I think his prices are very reasonable.

He removed his shoes and tidied up after the installation which I always value a lot! Will definitely use him for more jobs!

Re: Electrician, handyman [ZH / AG / LU / ZG]

All I can say is this guy knows his stuff. After installing our pendant, we couldn't find the switch. Jose opened up a panel and said "this light has a dimmer - do you have any dimmers in the house?" ... anyway... he found the dimmer in the most unexpected place. Despite his specialty as an electrician, Jose is also happy to do anything else you ask. Actually... we need him back soon.

Re: Electrician, handyman [ZH / AG / LU / ZG]

José is Portuguese and I'm Brazilian so we communicated very well. He did a great job fixing the telephone cabling in my building in order to connect Swisscom to my flat. Much appreciated and will call again for anything of the like soon

Obrigado!

I hired José to put up some ceiling lights in my flat. He was efficient and professional, and charges very reasonable prices. 5/5 would hire again!
