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.

Here are some budget-friendly ideas on how to upgrade your outdoor space to create a whole new look in no time. See how you can make the most of your existing budget without breaking the bank and see what small ideas can have a big impact.
A new deck might be out of reach, but patios are a more convenient option to create an outdoor space for a lounge or to relax outside. A budget-friendly idea here is to create a patio anywhere by using concrete pavers instead of pouring or creating a patio. This will allow you to expand on your current patio or create a whole new space.
If you have a small backyard or are in view of other neighbors, you might want a spot where you can relax and get away from it all. Creating a privacy screen with vertical planting is a great idea. Climbing plants, stacked planters, and more can create shade and an enjoyable view. You can also hang up curtains or drapes around your sitting areas to create an inexpensive and peaceful setting.
How you light a space can create a big change in the mood, environment, and functionality of the space. For example, lights can light up tripping hazards at night and can create a cozy setting with warm-colored lights. Hang up string lights for a magical ambiance and enjoy the effect it creates.
Create a great space to hang up those lights, and curtains, and set out the patio furniture without the hassle of creating an entire patio.
See how you can change your backyard and create a stellar outdoor space with these great tips. From lighting up your spaces, installing a pergola, or hanging up some curtains for privacy, there are many ways you can make your space brand new without going over budget.
