What services do you NOT provide?

Keep in mind that Ark Valley Helping Hands is here to help, but we do have some limitations.

We do not provide routine services, such as regular housecleaning or ongoing yardwork. 

Landscaping is outside our wheelhouse. 

We are not licensed to provide electrical work or construction labor. 

Although we can help with packing a few boxes or loading a truck, we are not professional movers. 

We can only provide transportation within Chaffee County, as our insurance does not cover transportation outside the county.
