Important Announcement to Our Valued Customers!


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.

Top Tips for Outdoor Bar Planning: Create a Backyard Bar in Newark, Fremont, and Nearby Cities

An outdoor bar is a great way to enjoy your backyard space. If you have a patio or deck you are looking to upgrade, or you are starting from scratch, keep on reading to see how you can create this new space for your family to enjoy.

Step 1: Planning the Outdoor Bar

Start planning so you know what kind of bar you would like outside, or how you will use it. Are you planning on using it multiple times a week or occasionally? This can decide for you what amenities you really need and how you can set up the new area. If you only use it only now and then, do you need every amenity or do you need just the basics?

Step 2: Pick the Amenities

A great tip is to pick out your top 3 amenities and items that you must have in your outdoor bar. Then create a list of ones you want but can live without—this will help as you budget and see what you can plan.

  • Sink
  • Dishwasher
  • Lighting
  • Coolers
  • Refrigerators
  • Counters
  • Tables
  • Chairs
  • Bar
  • Stools
  • Décor
Step 3: Location

Where would you like your outdoor bar to go? If you select plans with appliances, do you need to install plumbing and electricity? These decisions can affect your budget and where you can put the bar. For example, it might be convenient to put it on your deck near your home, or against your house so you can share the connections that run to your indoor kitchen. If your bar is out on the patio on your property, instead of fridges, what about using high-quality coolers if you can’t run electricity out there?

Make the backyard set up you have always dreamed of. Start planning and creating your outdoor bar to enjoy in no time. With these tips, see how you can make this plan a reality today.
