This is what I can offer you in your garden...


My name is Mark Bruins (48yrs), I live in Durbanville and I offer my services as:-

Landscaping and fruit & veggie garden design

I have completed my Permaculture Design Course in 2011 and have created a well functioning nursery and veggie garden at home. Let me come to your home and offer you some expert advice.

I also offer the following services:-

All home services, maintenance and renovations;
Selling your unused goods online for cash;
Home and office electrical audits …find faults and save you money…

How it works:-
I can come to your home when it suits you and then you can show me what needs to be done so that I can quote on how many days it will take me. If there are any materials to be bought I will quote on that too. We then work out a schedule and you only pay me if you think I have done a great job. My rate is R380 for an 8 hour day. I have a list of references on my website of work I have completed and I also use my own tools.

Some of the home maintenance services I have experience in:-

Small plumbing jobs like fixing leaking or broken taps;
Light electrical work like fixing broken lights or plug-points;
Fixing of cupboards and doors, gates, locks and keys;
Making shelves;
Blinds, curtains and railings;

What I can do for you...

**** Preserve your memories ****

My name is Mark Bruins (48yrs), I live in Durbanville and I offer my services as:-

I will help you convert and manage all your multimedia, Effortlessly.

This is what my company Central-Media has to offer you...

We connect and I then determine how I can help you to convert all your photos, videos, cd and dvd's, records and tapes to high quality digital media. A program I recommend and help you install on your computer can then manage your entire media collection powerfully.

My aim is to help you utilise your existing audio-visual equipment like TV, computer, hi-fi, speakers etc. and connect your newly created media library with them. Now all your media is accessible with a simple touch of your remote control or mobile phone.

I also sell a range of quality digital devices that can connect to a hard drive or flash memory stick, and then it connects to your television and hi-fi. You and I then put all your media on this device so that you can watch all your photos and movies, or play any of your music collections through your television and/or hi-fi without the need for a computer.

No more scratched cd or dvd’s that jump or get stuck ruining your entertainment experience! Create and burn music or video discs for your car or to give to friends and family as affordable presents. Get more media on a memory stick, plug it straight in and copy to your new device or existing computer, your library will update automatically.

I offer a free 30 minute consultation to discuss how I can assist you in learning this amazing program called Media Center. After this you will have enough understanding of what is involved to decide how we should convert your media and why. My rate is then R380 per day excluding travel from Durbanville, or R50 per hour for work I take away for example photo scanning, DVD ripping, VHS to AVI conversion, Camcorder to AVI etc.

Please contact Mark on 083 246-2434 should you want to book the free consultation.
