Dear Valued Customer,
Handyman Connection of Mountain View is committed to providing the highest quality services to our customers. We know that our customers have a choice, and we are grateful for your continued partnership.
For the past several years, Handyman Connection of Mountain View has been absorbing processing and transaction fees related to payments made by credit card. Unfortunately, our costs for credit card acceptance have continued to rise. Credit card rates have continued to skyrocket over the last few years, and more and more credit cards are run with the card not present (phone transactions, etc.). “Card not present” transactions also increase the rate we are charged. The use of credit cards to pay bills has also increased significantly.
Effective April 1, 2023, we will begin adding a 3% convenience fee for all credit card payments. The fee with be added to payments made with Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover to offset the fees charged by the card companies. In accordance with credit card network rules, Handyman Connection of Mountain View cannot profit from this fee, and it does not exceed our expenses associated with accepting credit card payments.
Payments made by check, electronic payment (ACH/EFT), wire, or debit card will not be charged the convenience fee.
We thank you for your understanding as we implement this fee and offset some of the increased inflationary costs we are all incurring. We are happy to work with you on alternate payment options.

An annual home maintenance calendar is a fantastic way to make keeping your home in good condition a simple task. Setting up this calendar will remove the guesswork and make sure each task gets accomplished. It will also remove all the stress from home maintenance by making sure that you stay on top of everything at all times. Handyman Connection of Mountain View explains how to set up this calendar:
Step 1 – FIrst, you need to determine all of the maintenance tasks that your home needs in order to stay in great condition. You can do this by researching ideas online, asking experts like us, getting ideas from your lease, or contacting your homeowners association. Possible tasks can include scheduling a roof and gutter inspection, freshening your garbage disposal, and flushing your water heater. Make sure to write down everything that you need to do.
Step 2 – Next, you need to organize your home maintenance tasks according to their frequency. For instance, some home inspections need to be done once a year, while gutter cleaning and window washing need to happen once every six months. Meanwhile trim and baseboard cleaning needs to be done every three months. Group similar tasks together.
Step 3 – Now you are ready to make your own maintenance calendar. Imagine what a typical year for you is like and then arrange your home maintenance tasks according to this schedule. You need to think about how your regular vacation times will correspond to maintenance tasks and aviod times when home activity and distractions are likely. You also need to consider the best times and seasons to perform certain tasks. After you’ve arranged your calendar, make sure to set your reminders and follow your calendar throughout the year.
