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.

Great Work
Customer Service
We just need a double outside socket fitted. Underlying problems were found during the work, all fixed and checked by the cheerful, friendly electrician who patiently explained everything he was having to do. We've used Datel before which is why we went back to them for this small project. The quotation process was quick and competitive. Wouldn't hesitate to use Datel again.

Professional & Friendly
Customer Service
Jon Sword and Ryan Dicks were excellent. They were very professional and friendly. We had a new consumer board installed to replace an old fuse box as well as a couple of other small jobs and the work they carried out was excellent. They were very thorough and honest. Highly recommended.

Excellent work and Customer service
Customer Service
We have used Datel for a good number of years for varied electrical work. They recently installed 2 Dimplex Quantum heaters for us - to replace old faulty heaters . The additional wiring circuits/switches required were installed very neatly around existing decor. All old items were removed and they left everything clean and tidy. All my questions during the time with us, were answered fully and professionally re setting up/use of the new heaters. The quality of workmanship and customer service of the electricians and the Admin support team is excellent. It's great to have found 'Datel' that I can rely on for any electrical needs.

Really Great Job Ryan. Thank you.
Customer Service
Ryan replaced light switches, exterior lights and spotlights to resolve problems with bulbs blowing and lights flickering. It was done to the agreed schedule and budget and very efficiently. The trader was incredibly personable, hugely efficient and all staff were so helpful, keeping us fully informed and maintained a brilliant sense of humour throughout. Even with unavoidable delays, the job was completed on time and very effectively.
