Highly recommended
Customer Service
From start to finish, I had confidence in this firm. Communications were frequent and I felt listened to. The engineer was prompt, extremely helpful and knowledgeable and did a great job, including insisting on him clearing up. I shall certainly use this firm again.

So Professional
Customer Service
Half of house circuit had gone and was advised that it was going to be a long day with carpets and floorboards taken up. However the job was done so professionally with minimal disruption and each area vacuumed after making a mess and all furniture and floorboards put back in place. Fantastic how these guys worked out the routing with no plans to go on. Would definitely recommend to anyone. Well done and a massive Thank you.

Great customer service from Datel
Customer Service
Asked Datel for help replacing old kitchen lights and a faulty bathroom fan. They advised on replacement light fittings, bulbs and fan. Work carried out as arranged and on time despite the awkward access to the fan. A problem with the fan was quickly sorted out. The new light fittings now look fantastic with no dark areas. When one of the bulbs supplied failed within a matter of weeks, they sourced a replacement for us, despite being told the bulb was no longer available. Thank you for your great customer service and your perseverance. I am happy to recommend this company as they are really helpful, gave us good advice and are happy to resolve any problems that arise.

Great service
Customer Service
We needed electrics installed in our new garden room. The service provided by Datel from start to finish was first-class. The quote was probably not the cheapest but Datel gave us confidence. We were provided with very good backup and reminders from the office and the job itself, carried out by Ryan, was excellent. Very happy to recommend Datel.

Bleeping alarm!
Customer Service
I had to call Datel as my smoke detectors decided to sleep in the early hours.I had an idea of was the backup battery but it was also mains linked and as I'm no sparky I needed help.David on the phone was most helpful and sympathetic to my needs. A young engineer came out within 40mins.I explained what I thought needed doing and he went in and within minutes he had sorted the alarm.They were out of date by at least 8 years.Sheltered to check the other one and I asked for a new one also.He didn't have one but went out to purchase one. Didn't get his name but he was very nice and explained the expiry date ,tested the alarms and disposed of the old ones. I thoroughly recommend these guys.Reasonably priced but worth it.I can now sleep safely and soundly.

Overcharging labour
Quoted for very simple hookup job in garden that would be one days labour for one person, and in the end turned out to be that. Quoted £420 which ended up being over twice the final price I paid an electrician 3 doors down from me. I am a which? Member and had confidence in this service, not now.

The trader replied (on 26/10/2021)
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review which we were extremely surprised to read. We received your telephone call back in April asking for a quotation as soon as possible since you already had gardeners on site and electrical work was required in conjunction with their works. Bearing this in mind we rescheduled several jobs to enable us to send a colleague to give a quote the same day as your telephone call. It was unfortunate that when our colleague arrived to look at the work involved he was not given full access to the area in question. Hence our quotation was prepared without us being able to visually inspect the work involved. It is very likely that this explains why another electrician was able to complete the work at a cheaper cost.
Fast and efficient customer service
Customer Service
I called Datel out urgently for my elderly parents one of which has dementia. Ryan arrived within 30 minutes and very quickly diagnosed the problem, he was able to explain what was wrong and put a temporary fix in place which he proceeded to follow up with the next day. All costs were discussed upfront. I can highly recommend them as a very friendly efficient company who I will use in the future.

Went above and beyond.
Customer Service
We had a dangerous faulty cable inside the wall causing arcing and loud bangs. We called Datel who hadn't anyone spare at such short notice, but called back, having got an electrician off his day off to come out to us. He was polite, calm and methodical, pinpointing the problem straightaway and effecting the repair without fuss, putting our minds at ease. He worked with very little disruption and hardly any mess at all. Thoroughly recommend this company, who are coming back to do more work at my property.

Another great job done
Customer Service
I have used Datel for a good number of years. It's very reassuring to have found an Electrical contractor who always delivers excellent customer service and workmanship. The electrician called at the time agreed and fitted new LED fittings in our garage and shed. The job was done very efficiently and the fittings were secured neatly. An earthing fault was detected and rectified at the same time. The LED products are great - neater and more efficient than the old fluorescent tubes. All the old fittings were taken away. Their pricing is good - for the excellent quality work and customer service they deliver as a team - of both electricians and admin support.

Not the cheapest, but an excellent company
Customer Service
Bought a 50 year old house with trunking and DIY electrics everywhere, an unreachable consumer unit, lots of sockets not working, etc. Datel advised an update to solve all failed areas to modern specs, garage rewiring and investigation of any suspect areas - rather than a full rewire which was not needed. They started Monday, brought in two other electricians as needed, & finished on Friday. Having found additional issues, i.e. all outside security lights not working, aged unsafe extractors, inset smoke alarms years out of date, they advised most suitable new ones, with alternatives offered. At all times, they kept me involved in decision making, choices with costs where necessary. They worked tidily, cleared up every night, & turned up when they said they would and went over and above to leave me confident that my house now worked well and safely Their communication both from office and supervisor on site was excellent. All in all I can thoroughly recommend them.
