Outstanding job. After countless no shows and unreturned calls from people who felt the job was too small Gary was wonderful. He came over the same day and got the job done- very professional, clean and tidy and a really nice man. Thanks so much, I can't recommend him highly enough

We can't recommend Gary enough, he did a fantastic and neat job. He really went above and beyond to make sure everything was just as we wanted it. He gave a detailed quote and kept us in the loop at all times. We were really pleased with the price and felt it was so reasonable given how much he got done for us.

L.H - Morpeth

Gary Bennett was punctual and courteous. What's more, he did a solid day's work for the price quoted. What's even more, he did the job I asked for extremely well without cavilling, when necessary checking that he had properly understood the requirements. The job was completed politely, with intelligence, to a high standard.

S.R - South Shields

Gary re grouted our shower cubicle for us . He provided a first class service, contacted when he said he would, came to do an estimate as he stated and arrived to do the job as arranged. he is very polite and professional in his approach to the job, he even suggested a cheaper alternative to a full re grout, however we opted for the full shower area to be re grouted and he gave what we thought was a fair price for the job. He arrived on time and started to do the job without delay, provided dust sheets and materials needed for the job, got on with the job without wasting time, he insisted on clearing up and left the area clean. A first class job by a very nice man. We would highly recommend Gary. Thank you for a first class service.

K.G - Cramlington

Happy with the price, job carried out quickly and everything left tidy once the garden was complete.


Y.Z - Gosforth

Gary responded to the job very quickly. He visited my house and provided detailed suggestions on the work. Gary arranged the supplies and did the work within few days. The job was done efficiently with top quality. Also enjoyed the conversation during break :)  I would recommend Gary for any other work in handyman and gardening.

K.D - North Shields

Aboslute gentleman. Addressed the issue and even surpassed expectations even sorting out my bodge jobs. Really happy with results. Will defo use again.

M.W - Gateshead

Excellent job. True professional. Completed my summer house roof perfect. There was no rushing. The job was done to perfection. Would highly recommend. Lovely man.

R.K - Sunderland

Fantastic job. Excellent communication and saved a lot of money by allowing me to send pictures of the work that needs doing rather than a callout as time is money :) As one purchased part didn't fit, Gary went and got it exchanged and as new item was cheaper, he reduced the overall bill accordingly. The completed work is of an extremely high standard and we are looking forward for Gary to make our life even easier with the next few jobs ... Highly recommend The New Chalmeleon's services!

M.C - Newcastle

If I could give Gary and Steve a ten I would. They built a bespoke Gazebo for me, which turned out exactly like the picture I showed Gary. It's fantastic and I love it. They worked extremely hard even when it was pouring with rain, and laughed their way through it. Fantastic job lads, I would recommend New Chameleon to anyone.

P.H - Kenton

Can't recommend Gary enough. Very professional and polite. Various jobs done to high spec. 

Would not hesitate to use again!


T.C - Ashington

Excellent from start to finish, came on time, worked very late into the evening and completed everything to the highest possible standard. 

Would highly recommend. 

Thank you for the excellent service.

K.N - Morpeth

Gary is a reliable competent tradesman. 

He was very professional in completing the jobs I needed done.

When difficulties arose with my door handles he persevered until he found a solution.
He also fitted stair rods for me & some curtain rails, clearing up any mess along the way.
I would have no hesitation in recommending him for future customers.

A.P - Cramlington

Gary called me to book the job straight away and did the job the next day. He messaged to say he was on the way and came when he said. He was very well prepared for the job buying a new metal drill bit in preparation & carried out the job brilliantly. Would definitely recommend Gary and will use him again in the future, the whole process was so easy. Very happy with the job he did exactly what was required.

K.S - Chester le Street

Gary was prompt & organised. He did a great job and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.

R.M - Wardley

Responded quickly to advert. Job done to a high quality but thought price a bit high.

M.G - Blyth

Gary was very professional throughout; from the initial contact/arrangements to the completion of the job. 

Very happy with the work, which was reasonably priced too. 

Would definitely use Gary again, and would highly recommended to other users of the site.


K.G - Kingston Park

We cannot recommend Gary enough. 

He is a real trust worthy professional who completed all of our required work with ease. 

Nothing was a bother to him and he quoted us a really good rate for the high quality of work he provided. He worked a really long day to ensure our job was complete and offered an aftercare service should we need it.
An excellent service from start to finish. We will certainly be calling on him in the future for any work we require.

J.S - Newcastle

Hired Gary just over a week ago to get an old fitted wardrobe removed. Gary was fantastic, arrived bang on when he said he would and was well underway with the job after 5 mins or so. Was a bit of an unknown about what the state of the wall would be after the wardrobe had come out but Gary took the time to patch everything up afterwards, including finding the best skirting and coving to match the rest of the room. I couldn't be happier with the work he did.
Gary made it all look easy and I would have no hesitation in recommending him or hiring him again for other jobs :).

S.L - Newcastle

Gary was on time and got cracking with the job without any delay. He did a superb job and I would happily engage him again in future.

A.T - Newcastle

I hired The New Chameleon to help me in furniture assembly, and to move a mattress. Gary is friendly and professional. He offered me a reasonable price for the work. Also, he helped in giving me tips and advice about the job. I recommend The New Chameleon, and, I will ask Gary about future jobs. Very satisfied.

N.S - Heaton

Gary called me straight away and did the job that same day. He did an excellent job from start to finish, very tidy , cleaned as he worked, very polite. I'm really pleased with the result and would certainly recommend him.

J.T - Howdon

Fantastic service from Gary. Thoroughly trustworthy and makes the whole process easy. Top workmanship and top results. I would recommend in a heartbeat. Great fella to boot! Explains everything and takes all the hassle away from the job. Great stuff!!. I would and will use him again.


S.T - Holywell

I would highly recommend Gary. Freindly, honest and very trustworthy. Brilliant job done and very tidy. One very happy customer

M.B - West Denton

Gary is the epitome of British craftsmanship! NO job is too small for him.

This job initially started solely for the removal of existing kitchen fixture. 

Due to miscommunication between my wife and myself, Gary had to come back to our house for the quote, twice, with no complaint and annoyance that you can especially sense from the younger generation.

Gary managed to sort out our requirement with certainty, precision, and common sense. 

In addition to the removal of existing kitchen fixture, he managed to 1. helped me to move the fridge, freezers, and stuff 2. remove old laminate flooring in the utility room (Extra. reason: Gary advised that it will save us money and effort for our tiling project) 3.change the direction of the doorknob on 1 of the cabinet (Extra. reason: open more easily for us without blocking the way) 4.saw off the side of the cabinet door so that it will close, and guess what, is Extra again!5. Re-slot most of the kitchen units into the complex sized utility room 6.Saw off the sink worktop, Extra.
All EXTRA are done without payment anticipation.
All done in a day's (A SUNDAY!) work with a very reasonable fee.

If you are looking for a professional who is not afraid to be challenge, put in 100% of his effort into your property and treat them with respect, Gary is the man for the job. The end result is such high quality that my wife is earmarking jobs around the house for him, and if you know my wife , you will know that is a HUGE compliments.
