I am an art consultant for Wentworth Gallery. I sold my client an oil painting for over the fireplace. Normally, we hang paintings using our own merchandisers, but we do not have the experience or tools needed to hang in brick. I called another company, but they wouldn't even come out and give me a quote to hang just one painting even though they knew I worked for an art gallery. Alan got back to me right away even though he was on vacation. He showed up right on time and was incredibly professional and courteous. I fully intend to continue to utilize Alan's Hang Ups for any future hangings that are too much for our normal hangers. Great service and a great price.
Alan came out to hang an oil painting measuring about 5ft by 2ft on a fireplace located in the kitchen of my client's home. He removed the screws from the mortar that were left from previous things being hung there. He carefully measured and drove in the needed hardware to work with the brackets on the back of the painting. After that the piece was hung and secured with no issues. Everything was centered exactly right in the recessed area of the fireplace.

Alan was outstanding. I was concerned about hiring a service to have pictures hung, but Alan did an outstanding job at a reasonable price. Next time we need pictures hung, we'll call Alan.

I have known Alan Gilley and used his handyman services for 10 years. He is honest, dependable, trustworthy, talented and patient. He is especially good at hanging art work and mirrors. Not only does he do a great job, but if you ask for his ideas, you will find that they are based upon many years of working with top decorators. I am happy to recommend Alan, and you'll be glad you found him.
