came to give a quote shortly after our initial contact, provided the quote promptly and on acceptance of the quote arranged an early date that was suitable for us. arrived promptly on the day of the work. Worked efficiently without fuss and without mess. explained exactly what he was doing and then performed the work to a high standard. When the invoice followed, it was for the exact amount of the quote... no unforeseen extras etc and was entirely reasonable. I will be using his services again.

This is the second time Darren has done work for me. Last time he installed 2 large distribution boxes and checked all the circuits. This time he ran armored cabling to the garage and installed additional sockets and security lights. Darren issues detailed estimates, carried out the work meticulously at a convenient time and costs are as stated in the estimate. All installation certificates are forwarded with the invoice. He enjoys a challenge and has solved all the electrical problems my old house has presented. An excellent electrician.

Darren installed a new fuse box for us. He did an excellent job and we were very impressed with his knowledge and professionalism, from the initial contact to the final paperwork. He was very friendly and helpful and we cannot recommend him highly enough.

Add wiring and wall plug for installation of Dish Washer

This was the second time we have hired Daren and DWS Electrical Services to complete work for us. Daren has re-routed / re-located an existing unused wall socket, to connect our washing machine. He also installed a new wall socket and associated wiring for connection of a new Dish Washer. He also tested the sockets, and the main switchboard for us. Daren was on time, discussed and explained clearly all the things to consider for the job, and provided the optimum solution to the problem, involving the least damage possible to the property. All work was completed within budget of original quotation. Overall, he left the house very tidy. What impressed me both times I have worked with Daren was that he is very approachable and polite, and listens to the customer's questions, explaining the choices he makes. I would recommend DWS Electrical Services and Daren to anyone, without any reservation.

Darren turned up when he said he would and fitted some complicated light fittings for us - at a very fair price. What more could you want from an electrician!

Darren has done 2 small jobs for me and charged a fair price. On both occasions he came when he said he would, his work was of the highest quality and he left no mess! I have no hesitation in recommending him.

Darren was recomended by a friend and came to our house to quote for a full house rewire. Darren listened to what our requirements were, giving helpful advice on how to improve the electrical circuits in our home. From first meeting Darren he was helpful, curtious and professional Darren replaced the distribution board along with all of the electrical circuits in our home and installed a home local area network. Darren worked professionally to a very high standard, was very knowledgeable in all that he did, cleaned and tidied up after each day and left us fully confident in the job he had completed. Darren worked until early hours of the morning to ensure that the job was completed before the Christmas Break which in our opinion, well exceeded our expectations. We are in the process of a major house renovation, and skilled professional trades people are proving very difficult to find. I would highly recommend Darren to all..
