Prevention Is Better Than Repair: Annual Maintenance Contracts, A Smarter Way To Look After Your Home

At Mr. Odd Job, we have a simple aim, we want to help improve and then maintain the environment you’re in by keeping your Air Conditioning, Ventilation, Sanitation and Electrical systems in tip-top shape.

When you consider maintaining a car it is normal to think in terms of a maintenance schedule designed to keep your vehicle running smoothly all year round and ideally, you’ll avoid waiting for it to break down before having it repaired and serviced…. Well, your house is just the same. The disruption, discomfort, and expense of repairing is a very different proposition compared to a proactive maintenance regime that will considerably reduce the headache of any home health hiccups….

Our new AMC packages reflect this as they focus on the preventative maintenance of your properties’ critical systems. We are including some handyman works as every home needs a little extra love and care throughout the year. However, our priority is to help ensure you do not experience any system breakdowns or failures throughout the term of our contract.

We are offering two tiers of packages and we know that both are going to be highly effective. One offers a full warranty on our work for the duration of the contract term whilst the other warranties works for 60 days following each service or specific task carried out.

As for names…, well At Mr. Odd Job, we don’t believe in accepting that something is just ‘good’.. we always aspire to make it better until it becomes the best. For this reason, we’ve named our AMC packages as, “The Better Package” and “The Best Package”.

So, whichever package you select, it’s going to be better than just “good”!

This starts from AED 2,700* per year (dependent upon the number of A/C units within the property), recommended for apartments and smaller villa properties.

  • 3 x Planned Preventative Maintenance (PPM) visits per year (scheduled seasonally with a focus on the summer months). Including;
    • Air Conditioning Servicing
    • Plumbing Inspections and Servicing
    • Electrical Inspections, Testing, and Servicing (excluding maintenance and repairs of appliances)
  • Warranty for 60 days following a PPM service, or any other specific work (starting from date of the first completed PPM visit)
    • 2 hours of handyman work (as required)
  • AED 100.00 of materials/parts included per PPM service (any additional materials and replacement parts over the AED 100.00 will be chargeable)
  • A 15% discount on Coil or Duct Cleaning services if required
  • A 15% discount on any additional works requested throughout the contract term (i.e. additional handyman hours).

Any reactive work related to your A/C, Plumbing and Electrical systems and assets outside of the 60-day warranty period will be chargeable (of course within the 60 days, it is on us).

* The above price based on a property with two A/C units (as a guide, the number of thermostats will relate to the number of A/C units).

This starts from AED 4,700** per year (dependent upon the number of A/C units within the property), recommended for larger properties.

  • 4 x Planned Preventative Maintenance (PPM) visits per year (scheduled seasonally with a focus on the summer months). Including;
  • Warranty for the full term of the contract (starting from date of the first completed PPM visit)
  • 4 hours of handyman work (as required)
  • AED 150.00 of materials/parts included per PPM service (any additional materials and replacement parts over the AED 150.00 will be chargeable)
  • A 25% discount on Coil or Duct Cleaning services if required
  • A 15% discount on any additional works requested throughout the contract term (i.e. additional handyman hours).

**Price based on a property with three A/C units.

Any reactive work related to your A/C, Plumbing and Electrical systems and assets will be included as part of the warranty.

All we would need to do is confirm the number of A/C units within your property and your preferred AMC Package to provide you with a price for the twelve-month contract term. The contract term will begin from the date of our first PPM service visit.

We aren’t throwing in lots of “added value services” that may or may not be required but will bump up the package (and price). If there is a requirement for any work outside our core business (such as a major renovation, pool cleaning, or pest control) then we will be happy to recommend one of our preferred suppliers and even help coordinate if needed but we won’t try and step in to their service and add a margin on their price.

Our aim, as mentioned earlier, is to maintain your property as a safe, healthy and comfortable environment. We are confident in the quality of our work and believe that the value of good maintenance is in the prevention of failures and not just quickly fixing something when it goes wrong (although we will do that if ever needed). However, the idea of shouting about “unlimited callouts” as a big selling point just doesn’t make sense to us, that’s like admitting that we expect to fail…. We want to prevent breakdowns not fix them…

If we wanted to summarize everything into one line it would be;

“The Mr. Odd Job AMC – a better way to maintain a healthy home”.
