Thanks, I'll save his number.
I ended up using someone on Friday but didn't like his pushy and loud attitude
Sorry I only saw your post now :(
I edited my original post with a bit more info.

There's another guy as well who is extremely knowledgeable and handy (I'm using him now to replace my solar panel of my dud shemesh. he is charging me approximately 800 shekel less then handyman tzvi, for example).  I'm not if he's an electrician, but I'm pretty sure he is.  One of those guys that does everything.  Berish - 052-864-7700     I actually have a great story about him.  When I first moved here years ago, I got a flat tire on the way to return the car back.  Was stuck on Sderot Eshkol.  Anyhow he pulls up (maybe he lived nearby), and took care of the whole situation quickly and happily. (he actually used to be part of chaverim in US)  I asked him for his number so I can pay him (I had no money on me, and I felt bad not giving him anything), and later that day paid him.  Fast forward 5 years.  I was telling my chavrusa that I needed some work done on my roof (the dud), and he started telling me he has this awesome guy, etc etc etc, "Berish".  It's the same one :)

Bad experience today with Bentzi Jeep tours. Booked months ago and he confirmed. Decided to reconfirm the night before via email just in case. He asked to start an hour earlier. So I rearranged my schedule, rented a car for the trip to Mitzpe Yericho, and guess what, he wasn't there. Called him on his cell and he claimed I had no reservation. I forwarded back to him his emails and he later replied that's it's my fault for not confirming by phone. Note, we never spoke by spoke prior. 

What a waste of money on a rented car, gas and time.  Going tomorrow for the Kotel tunnel tours. Got to be better.
