Correction of wiring fault and fused area in a new home.

Dane was brilliant, and I am really happy with his service. He was excellent, efficient and personable. I think he is good value for money and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him. He came out at short notice, found the fault and made it safe immediately. He told me the day he could come back and fix it, but I noticed another problem the next day that couldn’t wait and he came back immediately and spent time fixing the whole issue. He then returned a day later to add in an additional socket so it couldn’t ever happen again. Brilliant. Thank you.

Bathroom light fitting change.

I was given Dane’s number by someone who had previously hired him for a big job and they couldn’t speak highly enough of him and his work. I had a bathroom light issue and we agreed a time and a date for him to come and have a look at the issue. He arrived on time and was very friendly and explained what the problem could be and recommended a few solutions that would help resolve the issue. He went to the local b&q when he didn’t have to and picked up a new part that fixed the problem. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an electrician with a good work ethic and background.

Dane turned up early and worked without break until the jobs were complete, this was despite some work in a very hot loft on one of the hottest days of the year!

I have no hesitation in recommending him as a trustworthy, dependable, friendly and efficient electrician who does a good job at a fair price.

EICR + Remedial Works for Landlord. (Tenant)

Hello, just wanted to let you know the engineer was fab yesterday. He gave me a little lesson in electrics and it was also very interesting! He also showed me how to do the circuit board if we trip anything which a lot of engineers don’t bother to do. He was very professional and respectful. People are always quick to complain, but I think its nicer to send good feedback when its deserved !
