A/C – Air Conditioner Repairs

Landscaping & Gardeners

There are plenty that leave their cards on your doorstep but the trick is finding a good one ! Since this is quite subjective, I’ve decided only to post if someone raves about their gardener.

A resident has recently written with an excellent review of her gardener:

Planetgreeners Consultants. The Engineer is Mr.Sajan. Technician is Mr.Aboobacker…Contact them for responsible gardening and landscaping…0504970106

This is what our fellow resident says: “For the first time in my life in Dubai that I am getting an educated and responsible team who really cares for the plants and has good knowledge!”

I can also now recommend our new gardener. Try Lucky Landscaping – Contact 055 356 8416

Residents Advice:

One resident says: “I have tried his team a few times and very prompt service.” June 2015

October 2016: another resident also sent me a glowing report on Mr Nawaz regarding work to fix an electrical malfunction. He also called him a second time when they were locked out of their house. Mr Nawaz responded quickly coming to their home at 9pm. “He was honest, not over priced and his work was clean.”

One resident did have a bad experience as reported in May 2015. It sounds like one should be careful about the type of work requested and ask the necessary questions about the company’s qualifications to do the job. Maybe this was just a one time thing. “Recently used Mr Nawas’s services in JVC and I can confirm this handyman has no idea how to fix AC or water pump.”

Handyman Service Dubai Call: 055-1586022. Roshan has also informed me they have made pet enclosures in JVT and all kinds of technical repairs, small odd jobs, complete maintenance, repair, general build, garden, pool work etc!

A Resident warns: “tried Roshan but he cancelled an appointment we made despite telling him it was urgent. He has then not returned any calls and ignores messages”

Another option is Al Rifai company based in SharJah. They have done screens in JVT for at least one happy resident. 065339149 or 0506323153

Moving Companies

People in JVT have used: Thames Shipping Company, Kiwi Movers, Easy Move, and more.

One resident highly recommends SSG movers. “They were so professional, with lots of common sense to solve unexpected problems. Call Ali 0508566904.

In the early days of JVT, the closest shop was Spinneys located in Springs Town Centre.

Nearby, JP now has a shopping centre since Sept 2014 called Jumeirah Park Pavilion. Here you’ll find Geant Express.

Most recently (since Sept 2015) the closest large supermarket is Carrefour in the Me’aisim Shopping Centre off Fay Road. Click here for website listing all the stores and restaurants.

Another close large supermarket is Geant at Ibn Battuta which is just a short 10 minutes away thanks to Garn Al Sabkha road.

You also have Union Coop in Al Barsha and then Carrefour in Mall of the Emirates. You can find another Spinneys at Motor City, a mini Spinneys in Meadows and a Geant Express in Arabian Ranches.

Another great option – try Dinnertime. They take the worry out of meal planning and send you the ingredients for a week’s worth of dinners for 4 or 2. All you need to do is cook up the fresh food in less than 30 minutes of your time!

Geant also has an on-line service for deliveries. Check out our review.

Organic Food & Cafe also does delivery although I’ve frankly never been lucky with them. I have recently tried Fresh2Door and was pretty pleased with their selection, although a few items I passed over as not all that fresh. Two other options come recommended by a JVT resident: trolley.ae and supermart.ae, the latter has delivered to her in 45 minutes. That must be a record!
