Hi, My name is Tony Byrne, I have been carrying out electrical work for over 15 years. I am a sole trader, so it would be just me carrying out any work. I am registered with the NICEIC and carry all the relevant insurances.
In 2013 i collected the Which?Local trader East award at an awards ceremony in London, which i nearly didnt go to, but luckily my daughter persuaded me.
I also carry out work for a local conservatory company and a swimming pool and hot tub centre, which i have done for the last 12 years.
I wish i could mention hobbies, but really do not get time for any, apart from being a spurs supporter, but please don't hold that against me.

I carry out all Electrical work including small jobs locally, like changing a light fitting, so dont be worried to ask for a small job to be done. Also repairs to light fittings.

Intruder alarms & CCTV
Hot Tub servicing & repairs, also Sauna repairs
Garden lighting & sockets
Extra sockets & lights, new consumer units (fuseboards)

Good efficient service
Customer Service
Very happy to recommend Tony to my family and friends. I had an electrical fault where my fuse box was tripping out. After investigation Tony located the problem with one of the downlights and he also fixed a cupboard light and replaced a switch. He is a very friendly, efficient and someone with whom a lady living alone can feel completely safe. I will use him again.

Another great job
Customer Service
Tony has been doing various electrical jobs ( power to our summerhouse, new security lights, indoor upgrades to LED lights and checking sockets) for us over the last six months and on every occasion we have been exceptionally impressed. His quotations are clear, fair and where appropriate various options are explained and costed. Above all you can trust Tony to give professional advice and carry out work to the highest standards. He keeps in contact with you and always reconfirms his appointment time and keeps to it. He is also friendly, courteous, very helpful and I know I can always call upon him if ever need help. I can recommend him without reservation.

This is the seventh time I have used Tony over the last 2 years, had to sell two houses that required new fuse boxes and certification along with various electrical additions at those and our new property, as always he is reliable and competitive on price. Have recommended them to friends who have also used him on more than one occasion. This time it was outside lights for a garage and power sockets for outside working.

Good job
Customer Service
Tony came to my new home as few weeks ago to assess a number of items which needed sorting out (mystery switches, defunct extractor fan etc). The work was carried out and completed this week to my complete satisfaction. He could not have been more helpful. He was prompt, very pleasant to have around, cleaned up after him and his charges were reasonable. I would highly recommend him.

Changing fittings
Customer Service
Tony answered my initial email promptly and gave me a date and very reasonable quote to do the job. Does what it says on the tin - turned up on time, thoroughly checked and tested all the fittings and got on with the job. Was done in good time and tidied up after himself.

Went over and above to help fix our problem
We thoroughly rate Tony's services and felt he went above and beyond to help us fix a frustrating problem. We had purchased a hot tub from Europe that came with a European plug and couldn't get it to work with just a plug adaptor. Tony spent 30 minutes on the phone with me to help me get to the bottom of the problem. He was incredibly patient and very honest. He didn't want to just cut the plug and fix a UK plug on for example in case we experienced problems and needed to sent it back. He had several helpful suggestions and sent me a link to an adaptor he thought might work. He also came out to give us a quote for installing a plug socket if the adaptor he sent didn't work. Fortunately for us, the adaptor did work, which we were delighted about. We felt Tony went above and beyond to help us and we are very grateful for his honesty and professional help. We have recommended Tony to our friends and family.

Ring Door Security System and setting up electrical circuit failure alarm
Customer Service
I regularly rely on Tony to help me with all electrical problems. He can always think outside the box and arrives at solutions for the most seemingly intractable of difficulties. He is always clear about costings. Tony never pressurises. He is excellent at researching the best appliances for the job (in this case a camera doorbell system). He went to great lengths to inform me of the capabilities of the various systems on the market and the pluses and minuses of each, prior to my buying one. Tony is very patient and calm and happy to explain very carefully to me how to use the system he installed. Tony works cleanly and efficiently, in fact you would never know he had been, if it were not for the job having been done or the problem having been solved! Tony is an excellent electrician and a thoroughly decent person who is honest and trustworthy and always goes the extra mile.

External lighting to front and back of house.
Customer Service
We first met Tony when he completed all electrical work prior to having a hot tub delivered. We were so impressed with how friendly, knowledgeable and tidy his work work was that we asked him for a quote for extra lighting around the front and back of our house. Tony‘s quote was reasonable and due to how impressed we were with him during the hot tub set up, we asked to complete the lighting. The work took him around 10 days and Tony was accommodating to a few slight changes we had throughout with no fuss, and we are over the moon with the end result and how good it looks. Tony is reliable, was always on time and his work faultless. Tony is so friendly that after the 10 days of work we were actually sad to see him leave and we will 100% use him again for further work we have already enquired about. The thing that stood out for us both was Tony’s level of customer service which really makes him stand out compared to other people we have had in to do work for us. We have already recommended him to family and friends. Thank you so much Tony and we look forward to a catch up and a cuppa next time your over!

Electrical works carried out for kitchen refit
Customer Service
Cannot recommend Tony highly enough. Have recently had my kitchen re-fitted and Tony carried out all the electrical works, which involved the installation of a new fuseboard, electrical works for a new light in the ceiling, electrical point for electric oven and numerous socket moves and removals. It was all done to the agreed schedule and budget. Tony is super friendly, helpful, reliable and always responds to messages promptly. Despite a lot of messy work, the kitchen was always left in a tidy state at the end of the day. Excellent workmanship. Will definitely recommend to family and friends.

Customer Service
To install 12 LED down-lights over 2 upstairs bedrooms. Tony made the whole thing so simple and straightforward. His advice and suggestion for choice of lights was spot on and his quote was returned promptly (very reasonable I might add). The work was outstanding & considering it meant drilling many holes in lath & plaster ceilings, there was absolutely no mess! Genuinely!! He filled the old holes almost invisibly. I can't praise his approach enough. He's a thoroughly nice man who clearly likes people and enjoys giving the best service. Absolutely recommended.
