The Dave will do it team


Dave Evans

Owner, and the original Dave will do it

Dave was destined to be a handyman. As a child, Dave was his father’s right-hand-man, helping him build a large portion of their house and spending hours working with him in the shed on the myriad of carvings, carpentry and other pursuits he turned his hands to.

After spending 20 plus years of his working life in sales and customer service in the electrical industry, Dave had an epiphany on Boxing Day of 2006 and declared “I want to start my own handyman business”.

In 2007 Dave will do it was born. The business has thrived – thanks to hard work and a great work ethic – and he has grown his business to a ‘household name’ in the local area.

Dave is known for his knack of understanding his client’s needs and responding to them providing a solution that consistently exceeds their expectation. A major source of business is customer referrals and repeat business; testament to his service, quality and reliability.


Phil Puckridge

Phil and Dave have been great mates from the day they met as members of the pit-crew of their kids’ pedal-prix team in 2011. Phil’s a diesel mechanic by trade, but had had enough of the grease and fumes, so swapped his spanner and oil can for a hammer and a power-drill.

Phil is as picky and fanatical about the quality of his work as Dave is and will turn his hand to anything that needs doing. We’d also trust him with the lives of our children … in fact we have on a number of occasions!

We welcome Phil as the first addition to the Dave will do it team.
