John and his team rewired our modern townhouse (many levels so quite complex) and relocated existing circuits into a new fuse box. John gave realistic time frames for the work and a detailed quote. The work was undertaken with care and consideration, the property left tidy and safe at the end of each day whilst work was ongoing. I would not hesitate to recommend John and would certainly use again for any electrical work.

I can totally recommend John. I read his reviews before booking him to complete an EICR. He explained the work required to approve the certification and provided a quote promptly. I'm very happy with the work completed and at all times John was friendly and worked under safe procedures.

Wasn't expecting to pay £70+VAT per hour to undertake a straightforward job.

Job was not considered urgent so had no issue having to wait 2 weeks. Once there, I was informed that after the electrician established what was required, left shortly afterwards only to return 2 hours later and spent 30-45 minutes changing 2 downlight transformers & a bulk light in a cupboard. The invoice inclusive of vat - breakdown was £66 for parts (too much) and £84 first hour then subsequently £60ph for 2 further hours (also too much - equates to £564 per day). I requested a breakdown of the costs and was ignored four times until today, and that is because I asked 'Which' to investigate, this is why I now have the costs above. His emails always courteous but lacking any empathy or resolute customer service & neglecting any specific detail. I would not recommend on the basis that it has come to this and easily could have been sorted much earlier with a little more understanding & cooperative care for his customers. I certainly won't be using this company again for any of my properties in London.

The trader replied (on 18/11/2020)
I'm sorry that you are not happy with the service that we provided. We did state our hourly rate before commencing work. On this occasion we were asked to carry out additional works to your property which equated to 2 hours additional labour. We charge £70.00 for the first hour of labour and £50.00 per hour there after - this is subject to VAT. Unfortunately like most businesses we have to charge VAT. Please understand as a business we have overheads for things such as vehicles, staff, tools and advertising. We spent 30 minutes repairing your downlights(which we came prepared for), an hour on travel to and from the supplier for your additional light fitting and then another 30/45 minutes installing the additional light fitting. The materials required for your job were not cheap but unfortunately that again is our of our hands. We also hadn't charged you for our parking costs. I personally apologise for not responding to your emails sooner. It has been a very busy period at this time - I believe I did reply to your original request but you hadn't responded to this until a week later and with the same question. I did try to call your mobile twice but I had no response. We appreciate your payment and again I am sorry we did not satisfy your needs this time around. Thanks John Durka

Quick to reply to initial query. Friendly and helpful. Communicated clearly on day re likely arrival time. Efficient, speedy and pleasant lads. Made an effort to explain and quickly right any issues that they found. Happy to take on the extra work that I will be putting their way, having used the company and liked them. Can heartily recommend.

Great electrician - on time, on budget

John and the team completed a great re-wire and fire alarm installation in a five storey Victorian house which is a maze of rooms, staircases and annexes. He is very calm, positive and quick - the work was of an excellent standard and he met his budget and the timetable. John and the team were the lynch-pins of the wider renovation project and their hard work meant I was able to keep the other tradesman on course too. He set the standard. We have been really pleased with the job and would recommend him for a large-scale project like this where you need an electrician who can manage a lot of complexity and detail whilst sticking to a budget. Highly recommended.

John was recommended on my local SE23life forum. The service was professional and friendly. We needed three smoke alarms replaced and he was able to do this on the same day at a very reasonable price. Very pleased with him and his assistant Luke and would definitely recommend him and use again in the future.

I could not recommend John more highly. I have called him a couple of times to mend broken spotlights, replace transformers and fix broken dimmer switches etc. He and his colleague are charming and helpful and nothing is too much trouble. I would definitely use him again.

John recently did work on my mother's house in Beckenham which involved outside lighting and also did work at my rental property in Anerley which has issues and errors identified as part of a ECIR report. He visited both properties and provided a quote promptly even suggesting to my mother cheaper ways to deal with the issue of outside lighting and she was very pleased with the work and how it was conducted. The work at my flat was undertaken professionally and promptly with minimal disruption to tenants. Always polite, professional and dependable I would recommend him to others.

John called me back promptly and arranged to come and do the work very quickly. It was all done at the agreed (and I thought fair) price, very glad to have found a good, reliable electrician locally! Thank you for your help.
