Here is an awesome testimonial from Handyman
, which we are proud to share with you:

“I was a little nervous about engaging Peppershock to produce my commercials and testimonials because I saw them as a very high end media company, producing incredible media for large businesses, charities and community projects.  Quite frankly, I was concerned I was too small and would be over produced.  My message is a very simple message about helping homeowners take care of home repair and remodeling projects that come up occasionally.  I have to say, Peppershock exceeded my expectations and clearly demonstrated that they heard my concerns, creating a wonderful message for my business. I look forward to working with them on all of my future projects. I would highly recommend them for any size business, the team at Peppershock really gets it; and they can create a wonderful message for your business as well.”
