What Client’s Say

For the last year, Bronwyn Garlick has been assisting Core Geotechnical Consultants with the debtors function and administrative work, on a part-time basis. She has been quick to learn how the business functions and she deals with our clients in a very professional and friendly but firm manner. She also plans and executes her work efficiently and with focus, reporting results in a structured way.
We can highly recommend Bronwyn for her enthusiasm, work ethic, willingness to learn, reliability and her pleasant disposition in the work environment. It is a pleasure to work with her.
John Yates, Core Geothechnical Consultants
I have used Bronwyn for a wide variety of different tasks ranging from house- sitting to helping me out with various admin tasks for my business. Every task was conducted in a professional and efficient manner. An example of this was the immaculate condition I found my flat in upon returning from a trip overseas after a month of her staying there, far cleaner than I’ve ever kept it!
Daniel Habib
Don’t Do It Yourself has been superb. Their efficiency was great and help went above and beyond.
Melanie Burgers, ClipinHair
I have nothing but good things to say about DDIY. They provide an excellent and reliable service that completely frees me to focus on what I do without worrying about admin. I have great peace of mind in knowing that once I have sent a request to Bronwyn I do not have to worry about it again-it will be done and it will be done properly. I would recommend DDIY to anyone looking for assistance.
Tamryn Dicks, Pharsyde Accounting
Thank you for the pain free and efficient service your company provided me with. I managed to save so much time and was able to concentrate on my core tasks. I was relived of much time spent in traffic and queues. The right questions were asked in each task, to enable me to use time more effectively and economically. Thanks you for the professional and friendly manner you documented every task, nothing was too much trouble. Will definitely recommend your services.
Grant van Heerden, Absolute Building Solutions
“Hi Bron! Thank you for all your amazing work!! I know that I can count on you whenever I need something fixed in my flat. Everything looks fantastic and I’m super happy its all sorted out!
Thanks again, super impressed with your service :)”
Els van Mol, Overseas Home Owner
“My instinct was always to do it myself. But once I got into the habit of using Bronwyn at Don’t Do It Yourself, it just made my life so much easier. She’s done the monthly shopping for our office, taken my car for a service, arranged cut steel for our fireplace at home, fetched a chair from a furniture store, and much more.
Bronwyn is superfast and efficient. She saves me so much time. The best is that I can just send a quick What’s App and she’s on top of it.”
Nikki Maritz, IBTC
Bronwyn and Flavia are angels on earth! They literally run my life for me. They manage my airbnb listing because I’m not there to do it myself and before I’m even aware of any issues with guests or maintenance the problem is already sorted and it’s all done with kindness and a smile! I have no worries and it’s all thanks to them! Couldn’t be happier to have DDIY on my team, thanks girls.
Taryn Hudson, Private Home Owner
The solution for people (like me) who never properly learned to Adult.
Sam Beckbessinger
