Yes I did but not the best experience :(

Oh dear, bad luck :(

Anyone got any recommendations for small electrical jobs?

I eventually used Owen Dyer - 07813 729 181 - as recommended on here. Excellent service at a very reasonable price - I now have a lovely new Moroccan pendant lamp :). Nice guy too and he arrived bang on time.

Hello All,

 

Owen Dyer has just completed quite a bit of work on my flat, and I can thoroughly recommend him - he's thorough, conscientious and well priced, and a very nice chap to boot.  He even tracked down exactly the same model of entry phone to replace my broken one - even though it has to be 30+ years old!

I also highly recommend Colin Hurst (07956 915672) who recently re-wired our new (but old!) property in Forest Hill.  He did a very thorough job and also had some really good ideas about lightlng down our stairs and in our alcoves.  Maybe a bit Christmassy for some people but I like it!

 

He obviously arranged all of the necessary certificates etc.

I have had very positive dealings with Colin Hurst as well and would not hesitate to recommend him.  Reliable, good for snagging if needed and

efficient with estimates.

I used Owen this week to put nine new sockets in my living room. He fitted me in at short notice around other work and personal commitments. Meant I could get my plastering completed. Would definitely recommend him and use him again. Also very tidy.

Came home from a few days away to find my circuit had tripped and wouldn't reset .Couldn't get hold of Jeff who I had used previously so went with another recommendation from here.Colin Hurst (07956 915672). Colin is an NICEIC approved electrician which is always a good thing, he came straightaway and sorted what the problem was quickly, he has to come back to replace a length of cable but so far very pleased with his service.which was both friendly and efficient.

We used Jeff recently for a small electrical job. He turned up on time and to suit us.  He charged £45 for the first hour and parts on top. He was very helpful and we were pleased with his work. We have asked him to give us a quote for a complete rewire.

Hi Charlie,

I just tried to PM you but your Inbox isn't accepting any more messages so I think it might be full.

Jeff Hopcroft has just done four days' work for me at a very reasonable price - definitely recommended. His mobile number has not changed.
