"I don’t have family or friends that can help me with the things I need done in my home.  Other people told me that they’ve had great experiences with the Chore staff here, so I thought I would try it.  I needed an old heavy TV removed from my home and doors on my shed repaired. They came right out and did everything.  I completely trust them in my home and I recommend them to others.  I never hesitate to call and ask them for more help!”
