I required my shower tray to be lowered as disabled and replace all fixtures and fittings with a fantastic new look The guys were amazing and supporting me on the new design was a fantastic experience. Honest hardworking and they went the extra mile. Great contact throughout the job. They even tolerated being watched by my dog. Great work done.

Richard stood out from the rest of the Electricians I asked to quote for a small job. His response was within an hour of me asking for a quote. The price was fair and we agreed a date. He works with care and attention and explained what he was doing and sought agreement for placement of sockets and fittings. A pleasure to deal with!

Carried out a complete rewire on my mother's house. Old, listed building that had wiring from the 40's, 50's, and 60's. Handled a very challenging job with good humour, professionalism, sensitivity (for my mother not knowing if it was really needed!), and efficiency. Highly recommended.

I needed 5 heating panels installed. They arrived at the agreed time, listened to my needs and carried out the work in a tidy and professional manner, would be more than happy to use them again and will now be my first place I go to when needing any further electrical work done.

Richard Galvin replaced my 1964 fuse box (aka consumer unit) and sorted out the muddle left by several previous electricians over the years. He came when he said he would, completed the work in good time, left everything clean and tidy and was a pleasure to have around! Oh, and his price was very reasonable, too! Top marks all round!

Richard quoted and delivered a rewire of my property. He arrived promptly worked efficiently and quickly and removed more wire than it seemed possible for a property to contain. We now have a modern wired property that is safe and the wiring is tested and accredited to NICEIC standard. Above all he is a really nice man. He provided excellent customer services and kept to his quote. Really couldn't have asked for more. Thank you Richard. Highly recommended.

I foolishly tried to replace a broken socket with another of insufficient width and found that it wouldn't contain the wiring. I tried cutting the wiring and then found that it was too short to reach the appropriate terminals. I found Richard on Which? Trusted Trader and called him. He came promptly, on time and quickly replaced the socket without complaints about my botched workmanship. He also answered a number of my questions regarding electrical work and kindly offered to provide more information which arrived the next day. He was polite, friendly, helpful, tidy and very reasonably priced. Will be my first point of call for electrical work from now on. Thanks Richard.

Diagnostics leading to overcoming earth-leakage supply tripping
Customer Service
Quality
Value
Richard Galvin accepted my request to fit a modern consumer supply unit as a prudent step towards tracing the cause of my irregular electrical supply interruptions. After careful testing it was decided that the house wiring, although somewhat old, was not the cause of these irregular earth-leakage trippings. It was then decided to scrap the Larder Fridge as an observed cause of an earth-leakage trip when undergoing its defrost cycle. A freezer which was ten year's old with suspected failing thermal insulation and seemingly running continuously. was scrapped and both replaced with a dual Bosch Fridge Freezer. There has been no earth-leakage trip since then. Also, I have re-connected my one storage heater without 'tripping'. So I am greatly thankful for Richard Galvin's support in fitting a modern consumer unit and his diagnostic work in analysing the house wiring layout leading to a working leakage-free operation. I have no hesitation in reccomending Galvin Electrical's patient and skillful work as Which's trusted electrician. I am hugely grateful for being rescued from a chaotic electrical supply operation.

Richard is the guy you HOPE will turn up to your house when you call a trades person. I'll freely admit, my installation posed many problems and obstacles for Richard, but instead of listing off endless reasons as to why things couldn't be done or were going to be difficult, he simply informed me of the situation in hand and then how he was going to fix it for me! Richard is a genuine enthusiast of his work and refuses to leave until he is 100% happy with his install and the job is done to better than expectations. He fully understood my "Nest" internet based heating system and was not only interested, but also gave recommendations as to what the extended functions were. All I'll say is call this guy if you simply want solutions and someone who will treat your home like it was his own house. I'd recommend Richard to family, friends and anyone who cares to listen. 5 stars, see you again soon for the next phase of install Richard! Bring in the Philips Hue!

From start to finish I am extremely pleased with the service provided by Richard Galvin of Galvin Electrical. I had already received another quote from a "rated" local electrician, who took a few weeks to visit and then quoted a ridiculous price for what I needed to be done. Richard responded to my request for a quote immediately and took the time to answer all the queries I had beforehand. His quote was extremely reasonable and much lower than the prior one I'd received. Richard arrived on time, provided a service beyond what was quoted, his workmanship was first class and he only charged for what was quoted, even giving me a credit back for a part I had ordered but couldn't use. In addition to this, he has been extremely helpful, friendly, courteous and informative throughout. I thoroughly recommend Richard and I am pleased to have found a top electrician, who is reliable, honest and very reasonably priced. I won't be looking elsewhere for any electrical work and have already engaged Richard again for some additional work.

I found Galvin Electrical on the which trusted trader website when looking for an electrician to check the electrics in my new house. Although Richard had broken down the night before and didn't get home before midnight, he was at my house the next day where others would have rescheduled. I found Richard professional, knowledgable and gave positive advise. He did a superb job with adding extra sockets, new lights and bathroom heater. Would defiantly call him again for any more jobs which may need doing and would defiantly recommend to anyone looking for an electrician. Angela W.

Could not have been happier with the service received. After being let down by another electrician Richard could not have been any better!! Highly recommended and I will definitely be using him for any future electrical work. He made me feel at ease on the phone and went out of his way to come help me. I'm a first time buyer and my partner is deployed so this was all very new to me. After being let down and spoken to like rubbish by another company Richard made me feel so comfortable and restored my faith in servicemen. Amazing service.

My previous experience with an electrician was very bad - he ruined a ceiling fan and was less than helpful (and abusive) when I asked for help in sourcing a replacement part. I had to give up on him completely. Finding a contractor on this website gave me confidence to try again. I cannot praise Galvin Electrical too highly. I now have a ceiling fan in the conservatory that works properly and other outstanding works were sorted just as I wanted. They were very pleasant, friendly and professional to deal with. I have no hesitation in posting this recommendation and in endorsing this website.
