DIY Doctor teams up with Dyno with a free help desk to keep your Easter DIY projects on track
This new partnership will use the power of social media to bring answers to DIYers who are planning projects over the Easter weekend – the busiest time of year in the DIY calendar.
On Thursday 2 April Dyno and DIY Doctor will be running an online help desk on Dyno’s Facebook page so that people can get a professional opinion on their DIY project.
During the Q&A session building professionals will be answering questions on anything and everything that people are planning to do to their homes over Easter (and beyond).
So if you have a question about which brackets to use on plasterboard walls when putting up shelves, if you want to lay a base for a patio, or if you have a leaky tap that is driving you mad, you can get in touch via Facebook from 1-3pm this Thursday.
The company Dyno are well-known as the household name Dyno-Rod, but there is much more to them than that.
As well as their famous drain unblocking service they provide a great emergency plumbing service, emergency locksmiths, free security surveys, burglar alarms and much more. They provide a national service delivered by local experts.
Dyno – Almost 50 Years of Domestic Service
Founded by Jim Zockoll in 1963 as Dyno-Rod the company pioneered the use of a new electro-mechanical technique in the UK to clear blocked drains.
From the 1980’s the company expanded its services a home security business providing locks & alarms services which is now branded Dyno Lock and Alarms. The company runs on a part franchise, part employed-labour basis to make sure that that they can effectively and successfully cover the whole UK with their services.
The security services have recently been expanded to offer glazing and boarding-up services for homes, and business premises, under the Dyno-Glazing brand.
During the 1990’s they extended their services into more plumbing services. Today Dyno-Rod Plumbing & Drains is becoming as well known for plumbing as they have always been drainage.
Dyno became part of the Centrica group in 2004, and is now part of British Gas and Scottish Gas, making them a large national company which retains a local service sensibility.
The Q&A sessions are designed to connect with customers on a personal level, to give them the confidence to tackle DIY projects themselves, with the guidance of an experienced professional.
