Melissa B.

Jerome arrived on time, was extremely nice, did a fantastic job hanging my picture and was super efficient. I highly recommend him!!!

Keith M.

Carlos was great! Had him hang multiple pics throughout my apt. High quality and great attention to detail. Made sure I was ok with each location before hanging. Definitely using him again for my TV mounting.

Onika K.

This is my second time working with Gary and again he did an amazing job. The constant professional! I highly recommend him.

Danielle M.

He was on time and installed my coat rack in record time. The rack is sturdy and stable on the wall. Super happy with my experience.

Laura P.

I live in CA but have a condo in NYC. It can be very frustrating to find someone to help in jobs and do them well. Miguel's has been attentive and amazing. He can fix anything and is very responsive while doing it. I will not ever work with anyone else. With so much distance from me to my condo, he has placed my mind at ease, several times. 5 stars doesn't even do justice for how happy I am.

Nicola M.

Steven was great! He was extremely thorough and hung art beautifully throughout my loft. Lovely chap and super professional.

Campbell S.

Carlos is excellent! Punctual, very careful and professional with his work, nice guy. Definitely recommend.

Carmen A.

Amazing work! He was a perfectionist in hanging our paintings and I appreciated his attention to detail. He also came well prepared - a floating coat rack we ordered has too small holes and insufficient anchors for the weight - he was able to expand the metal holes, and securely anchor it for 200+ lbs of weight! The extra care, attention, and knowledge is phenomenal and I wouldn't hesitate to call Nelson again!!

Livia M.

Benjamin was so nice, did a perfect job while also giving me tons of advice and helping me make decisions of where to put stuff. Awesome!

Steve Z.

Very courteous and professional and of course good with his hands - he hung 2 shelves, 2 pictures and put together an outdoor daybed for us.
