B&Q has launched a Homefit service, providing customers with access to fully qualified and vetted local tradesmen at pre-agreed fixed prices, removing questions about working with unknown tradesmen.

Launched on 13 May, the service is designed to provide customers with an easy solution to addressing those DIY tasks that they can’t – or shouldn’t – undertake themselves.

Billy Quinn, director of installations at B&Q, said: “We encourage our customers to enjoy DIY by providing in-store classes, expert help and advice in store and online, but some want hands-on help and for a job to be done for them. With B&Q Homefit, we now give them that choice too. B&Q Homefit also covers tasks that, by law, should always be carried out by a professional, registered tradesman.”
