Hire a Hubby, a professional handyman service, opened in the UK less than two months ago, having originally started as a successful franchise in Australia.

Chief executive Geoff Willett got in touch after reading in the Welwyn & Hatfield Times about a police crackdown on rogue traders in Times Territory, and wanted to explain what his company was doing to eliminate the problem.

"We provide a professional handyman service whose operators have to undergo security checks and carry photo ID," Mr Willett said.

"We are covered by �5m public liability insurance and have all workmanship unequivocally guaranteed by the company.

"As far as we are aware no other company offers this.

"More often than not, while we start by offering handyman services, it soon develops into bigger projects and our resources allow "Hubbies" to operate as project managers using suitable and qualified tradesmen."

The company is currently looking for potential franchisees in Hertfordshire, with any potential "Hubbies" first undergoing a training programme before being allowed to carry the brand name.

Mr Willett added: "The whole purpose is to give customers the confidence to allow people into their homes knowing that they are not going to get ripped off or stolen from."
