In late December, two new apartment complexes commissioned by the Joo Group will be completed in Turku. In total, they will comprise 247 new Joo homes. The residents of As Oy Turun Henning and As Oy Turun Kirstinpuiston Helmi will be able to book the Joo Fixer service to help get their new homes ready. The service offers free assistance for small tasks like installing a washing machine and light fixtures, or putting up pictures or mirrors.

– All our residents might not have the tools needed for small installation or mounting jobs. We want to make moving house easy and carefree by offering help without additional costs. At the same time, we can ensure that appropriate tools are used for each material, so that surfaces will not be damaged for future residents, says the Joo Group Head of Property Management Mikko Väänänen.
