The story began in 2009 when I was given the opportunity to join the Princes Trust programme. I’d been out of work and looking for employment for more than 7 months but with no success and I needed a break, to find an opportunity, which was what the Princes Trust gave me.
My skills were in joinery and I was supported by the Trust to develop my business idea which started out as wedo1t.com. I was a handyman, jet washing, hanging doors, hanging pictures, anything that needed doing, I’d do it.
The business soon started to grow, we became a team rather than just me and through the experience and support of the Trust the brand name became Nottingham Maintenance. The funding I received from the Trust allowed me to purchase our first van and from that point there was no stopping us!
Our professionalism, dedication and determination are reflected in the quality of our work and the service that we deliver to our customers. The proof is in the pudding – in almost 10 years we’ve grown from a man and a van to a million pound business with 15 employees.
In 2017 we became a national brand and to reflect this our name changed from Nottingham Maintenance to as it is now, National Maintenance. However, our ‘handyman’ ethos remains at the heart of what we do, no job is too big or too complex, our motto remains, ‘Do more, please more’. We take pride in our reliable and quality workmanship and we’re available 24/7, 7 days a week.
Last year I was given the accolade of being the most successful Princes Trust attendee in the Nottingham area since 1970. I am never complacent about what I have achieved, and I continue to work hard to build the brand and reputation of my business. I don’t forget the opportunity I’ve been given, and I always look for ways that I can give the same opportunity to someone else. Meet our wonderful team here.
