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.

How to Convert a Spare Room into a Guest Room


Create a Guest Room for Your Home in Sunnyvale & Nearby Cities

If you’re looking for a way to entertain your visitors, or just have an extra room that is not being utilized, here are some simple strategies for turning it into a spare room. It’s easier than you think!

Step One:   Decide what type of aesthetic the converted space should have. If you want your guest room to feel like part of your home, keep it in the same style as the rest of the house. If you want it to stand out and be more accommodating to different tastes, go with something completely different like pastels.

Step Two: Empty out any clutter in the available space. This can be anything from old pictures to dirty toys, piles of clothing, or even books and magazines. Remove anything that is not needed to bring in new decor.

Step Three: The next step is the most important. You will want to decide what type of furniture you want in the room. If you have other rooms in your home that are more conducive to guests, you should keep this one as minimalist as possible and simply add a couch with some throw pillows if necessary.

Step Four: If you don’t want to spend a lot of money on furniture, consider renting it from a nearby storage center. This can be especially helpful if you need something very temporary (changed often anyway). It can also make the extra space more accommodating for company when unexpected guests arrive.

Step Five: Once the furniture is installed, add accessories that will complement the space. A pair of oversized mirrors could make all the difference. Or take a closer look at your decorations and make them in line with your goals for this room. This can be as simple as glass candle holders and a small collection of art.
