Homes are like Irish terriers—if not properly tended, they resort to bratty acts of defiance such as removing all the buttons from your shirts and humming show tunes while you're trying to meditate. Today's Groupon keeps your habitat happy: for $69, you get two hours of handyman services from Yellow Van Handyman (a $180 value). The handyman service—whose founder was recently awarded a 2010 Washington State Small Business Award for Veteran Small Business Champion—offers routine home maintenance and repair services and will journey anywhere within a 25-mile radius of the 10465 zip code.
The handypeople at Yellow Van Handyman will arrive at your doorstep fully equipped to mend what's broken and tend to the unsavory tasks required to ensure a healthy home or office. A variety of services are available for your convenience and range from everyday repairs and installations to larger-scale projects. For two sweet hours, enlist Yellow Van's friendly fixits to protect your manor from menacing bands of neighborhood ne'er-do-wells by having them childproof your home, or request that they replace a pineapple-shattered window before the spring storms flood your interior.
Even the most self-sufficient professional can occasionally benefit from a brainy and brawny genie-for-hire, so take a micro-vacation from your ill-advised homemade home makeover, and recline on the hammock while Yellow Van hangs your collection of portraits of Sir Anthony Hopkins.
