Darren fitted new bathroom lights, replaced external light on the drive and rewired new switches in the hall. He was on time and very professional. Took his time and delivered a really good job. Would recommend him and will certainly use him for future work.

Our property needed a full re-wire and in total we had 4 electricians come out and quote for this job. We decided to go for Darren as his quote was the best value for money and we were impressed by his attention to detail, the suggestions he made and how he listened to our requests. Darren always worked neatly and was considerate checking in with us when he needed to turn the power off. We had several other trades people on the job, all whom he communicated well with. He always showed up when he said he would and we never had to chase him up. We have no hesitation recommending Darren to anyone.

Darren did a partial rewire, he provided a great service and was really helpful, friendly and very reliable. The quote was reasonable and he answered all my questions (and there were a lot) really well, explaining everything. I would have no hesitation in recommending him and will definitely use him in the future when I need any more electrical work doing.

What work did they do? - I contacted DWS to resolve a bundle of issues during the visit, including a blown fuse, repair of several light fittings & sockets, and some snagging issues from the previous electrician. Was it done to the agreed schedule and budget? - Absolutely. The pricing structure was clear, there were no surprises, and Darren's fee was excellent value indeed. It was easy to make the appmt, Darren attended at the agreed time, and worked efficiently and thoroughly. Communication was refreshingly clear and professional throughout the process. What made the trader stand out? Over and above resolving the electrical issues, Darren was helpful and professional, explained what he was doing, and willingly gave really helpful and considered responses/suggestions to my questions about current and future electrical work needed in the property. He gave valuable advice in relation to wiring of our current solar inverter, and also put me in contact with an electrical boiler engineer able to repair our (unusual) electric boiler. I am relieved to have found an electrician who inspires confidence, and I will certainly contact Darren again for help resolving future electrical issues.

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.

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.
