To UHA Members,
Thank you for taking the time and caring enough about your business to become members of the UHA. I know we share the same dedication to the home repair industry and strive for improvement. We currently have members in 16 different states and Canada but we are looking for more and need your help. Word of mouth is one of the best forms of advertising. Help us by talking about us and what we do. Like us on facebook https://www.facebook.com/pages/United-Handyman-Association/253430868032278 and share us with your friends. Follow us on Twitter @united_handyman. Every other trade has an association that legitimizes the industry. Now the handyman has the UHA. The only way to make change is in #’s that is why the UHA offers a free registration membership. We just need your help to get the name out there and as we grow the more powerful the UHA will be and more benefits to the handyman. Some states like California don’t recognize the handyman as a trade and pressure the tradesman to become a Licensed Contractor. We believe that the handyman is a special trade of its own and should be a choice of the homeowner. We say regulate don’t eliminate. We have made it our goal to represent the handyman industry giving the handyman business an association to get certified and join other handyman businesses with a common goal. We work with our members to help improve their businesses. If our members are successful then we are successful. Tell your friends, customers and if you have a handyman ask them to become certified. If you are a handyman business owner ask your workers to become an individual member to get certified. Tell your customers that all your handymen are screened and certified.
