But here’s something I discovered on my Electrical journey.

50% of Electricians do NOT deliver what you truly need.

We had a short circuit in our house today and our electricity was totally cut off. This happened just when we were about to leave for my wifes birthday lunch. We actually thought we'd have to cancel the lunch since the electricity breakdown had also caused the heating to stop working along with no hot water. Our builders were not picking up the phone and most of the electricians we called were either overbooked, not picking up or were charging a hefty amount just to inspect the problem. We were soo glad we got hold of this company and the guy we spoke to was so nice and so helpful. He went out of the way to solve our problem and did it in no time. The guy is a genius. I would highly recommend this company for all electrical works. My wife had a great birthday and we were all praises for him :) thanks a lot !!

Steve did several electrical jobs for us when we first moved into our new house, and I cannot fault him for any of the work. His prices were fair, he was quick and tidy, and was great at explaining our options. Steve was happy to work with us to "make-safe" our house, as we're weren't planning on staying there for long and didn't want to commit to a costly re-wire. We instead had all of the existing wiring checked, an old electric shower decommissioned, new back plates fitted throughout etc. Steve also kindly replaced some unsafe metal wall sconce lights with ceramic ones, an issue we'd not spotted ourselves! Would definitely recommend.
