A joy to deal with
Customer Service
We had considerable electrical work by Datel late last year and found the company very professional in their approach and competence. The team were all a joy to be around, helpful with our many questions, and friendly. We recently needed to call Datel and their response was immediate and the new (unrelated) problem dealt with for which we were most appreciative. We would certainly recommend this company.

Display cabinet illumination
Customer Service
We have a lovely display cabinet/dresser built into an alcove in our kitchen but it had no lighting. I didn't want to see trunking/wiring in it but I wanted to see my special china. Jon from Datel came up with a solution involving spotlights inserted into the top of the cabinet and a remote control for putting on the lights. Its a kinetic remote control, so no batteries! It is so cool, its fabulous!

Very efficient
Customer Service
I contacted Datel with a problem and they were able to send out an electrician the next day. He arrived and quickly sorted out my problem within the agreed quote and gave me advice on another matter while he was here. I would definitely use Datel again.

Electrical improvements
Customer Service
We used Datel 3 years ago when we moved into a sadly neglected house in Torquay. Having had the house made safe we are now at the stage of improvements (rather than basic maintenance). We sent Datel a list of some 12 items including replacing the previous owners’ hideous light fittings in the lounge and study, new external lights, fitting surge protection, installing an extractor fan etc. There was also the 3 year EICR check to be done. Dave came to assess the work then sent us a quote. Datel’s electricians (Jon, their Qualified supervisor and Ryan, their apprentice) arrived on the day specified. They ran through the schedule of works and walked round the house with us, so that we all understood what was going to happen and it which order. They got on with the work, in a logical and sensible manner. We were particularly impressed with the way Jon mentored Ryan – he didn’t say ‘do it this way’, but instead he listened to Ryan’s views and discussed possibilities. The work was completed in a tidy and orderly fashioned. Both Jon and Ryan were cheerful and polite. We would always use Datel for our electrical work.

Clean and tidy work
Customer Service
i needed a cable for a new swim spa, it had to go from consumer panel to outside isolation switch then hot tub. I had someone take a look, and they thought I would have to go via the bedroom then outside, my wife was not happy but Dave came around from Datel electrical, suggested going through the utility room, I asked for a quote, I accepted it and his boys were around the next week. They made a small hole in the utility room wall to get to cons panel. I expected a large hole, but it was small. After made good you would not know they had been there, ran the cable down in the cavity then outside through the wall, they put a junction box, from there ran the cable around to the back of house where they connected to a rotary isolator switch from there a cable to where the spa was going to be. You could not see the cable until it rose to the rotary switch. they were excellent, friendly, very professional, very clean and tidy. Would highly recommend them

Friendly and professional service
Customer Service
This was follow up visit to complete recommendations following earlierinstallation of new heaters/fuse box. I like their online quote system which clearly details what they are going to do and how much it will cost. I asked for a quote for work they had recommended along with a quote to install a better quality and quieter bathroom extractor fan. Once online quote accepted, prompt call to book appointment. A couple of days before appointment an e mail to remind you, giving details of who will be attending and how long for, in both cases was a full day. As Ryan needed to be in and out of all rooms in a small flat I had no concerns going off to work and leaving him to it. Very pleased with both lots of completed work. Nick and David in the office very helpful. Staff are polite and courteous. Overall I am very happy and would recommend this company.

Complete rewire, renovation project.
Customer Service
This hasn't been the easiest of project due to the timing but Datel have been outstanding. House was rewired on time and on budget with great communication at all times. Would highly recommend Dave, Jon and the team.

Great service
Customer Service
First experience of using this company. Unfortunately lock down delayed the planned works but the company kept me updated by phone and e-mail as to when they could proceed. Jon & Ryan arrived promptly who were very efficient and courteous. Their housework is immaculate and left everywhere clean and tidy after they had finished. Social distancing observed by all, which can be difficult when you live in small one bedroom flat, but worked out well. Am pleased with my new storage heater/radiator and a newly functioning light fitting in the hallway. Would recommend this company and would use again. Overall a professional, friendly and courteous service from start to finish. Thank you to Dave, Nick, Jon & Ryan.
