Carhartt launches ‘Win a Handyman’ competition

It’s the same old story for hard-working tradespeople – you’re so busy working on your customers’ projects that the work you've been meaning to do at home gets put off. But now, thanks to Carhartt, trade professionals have the chance to transform their 'To Do' list into a 'Wish List' with the Carhartt ‘Win a Handyman’ Christmas Competition.

Carhartt, which has been protecting hard workers with top-quality workwear since 1889, is offering a ‘handyman credit’ worth £1,500 so you can finally get around to fitting that last skirting board, installing the trampoline or hanging that light.

“With this competition, we're reaching out to hardworking people who're already incredibly busy,” explains Carhartt’s Marketing Manager EMEA/PAC, Marga Stehmann. “If you ask someone what they’d like for Christmas, they struggle to come up with a couple of ideas, but if you ask about all the things that still need to be fixed around the house, they can list them in an instant!”

How to enter

Anyone can enter via from 6–20 December 2023 – please note that terms and conditions apply. Simply let Carhartt know what still needs to be done around your home and why you should win the Carhartt handyman credit. A jury will choose the winners with the best stories and jobs that really can't be left undone any longer.

“We're not going to renovate entire houses or construct any gardens, but we'd love to sort out as many small annoyances as possible. From squeaky kitchen cabinets to sealing the shower tray. A scratch card promotion at selected Carhartt Workwear stockists means that merchant customers will also have an extra chance to win handyman credit and other prizes,” Marga continues.

“When you're already working so hard, time flies and before you know it you’ve reached the end of yet another year full of jobs left undone. We're now offering people whose plans exceed the time they have available the chance to win a handyman credit, so they can go into the new year with an empty to do list and a settled mind – even if it’s only for a little while.”

The most useful present under the tree

Obviously, tradespeople can sign up for this promotion for themselves, but how great would it be to surprise someone else with a handyman under the tree? If you know someone who could use the help of a handyman, Carhartt encourages you to enter in a bid to win the main prize on their behalf.
