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.

Outdoors / July 27, 2021
Do you have an outdoor space where you can set out your patio furniture and relax after a long day at work? Here are some ways you can create the perfect outdoor lounge and patio in your own backyard.
An outdoor patio is a convenient way to create an outdoor lounge. Patios can only be installed on flat terrain and provide a space where you can take the comforts of inside, outside. Other outdoor lounge spaces can be found in decks or porches, as well. Patios can be crafted from cement, stone, tiles, and pavers. Set out furniture, décor, lighting, and more to create the perfect place to enjoy the view, cookout, and more.
An important thing to consider is where will you install your outdoor patio? If you plan on cooking out on the grill or using the space for dinner, it might be best to keep it close to home in case you forget the plates or any utensils while cooking and eating. Sliding doors or glass folding doors can be installed as the entrance into your home for a seamless inside outside transition. Build your patio away from the house to create the perfect little get away from home.
As you decorate your patio, be sure to use furniture and items that can withstand the weather such as plastic, stainless steel, or treated wood. For pillows, lounge items, and more, keep storage such as benches with storage, or little plastic sheds nearby to keep them in when the weather turns sour.
Create an outdoor lounge in your backyard for you and your family to enjoy. An outdoor patio can be created almost anywhere and can be brought to life with pergola structures, drapes, lights, furniture, plants, and more. Make it yours and see what you can create.
