I can highly recommend John he came to my house and installed kitchen cabinet underlighting and various other jobs that had mounted up. His quote was fair, he came when he said he would and even cleared up at the end (which not all traders do).

I needed several jobs done in my home - replace kitchen spotlights, check and replace sockets in the kitchen and move/adding new sockets in a bedroom. I found John on Which? Trusted Traders and gave him a call for an estimate. We agreed on a date and time and John turned up on time, first positive! He promised a quote within a day or two, which duly arrived, second positive! Once we decided to go ahead, we agreed on a date which had to be changed by us at short notice due to our self isolating, and John rearranged another date. John confirmed his estimated arrival the day before the job and again turned up as promised. On the day, we decided on a couple of small changes and John accommodated these without any fuss or extra cost. The job itself was excellent, high-quality work, which we are completely satisfied with. All in all, I would have no hesitation in recommending John to others. Over and above his excellent workmanship he is reliable and has a very approachable and cheery manner.

I had a new socket fitted, 3 x twin 13 amp sockets swapped for ones with USBs and 7 x external security lights fitted, five of which were replacements and two were full installs. John arrived when he said he would, undertook all of the work in under a day, everything was neatly installed, the instructions for the remote controls for the security lights were well explained and everything was tidied up before he left. Plus it was excellent value!! Overall a first-class experience!

We have used John previously to replace our under unit kitchen lighting and also to install connected smoke and fire alarms throughout the house. Today he has installed cabling and an isolation switch in connection with an electric car charger to be installed in our garage. He always replies promptly to enquiries and turns up on the day and time agreed. His work is first class and good value for money. We will definitely use him again.

I cannot recommend John highly enough. He installed a new consumer unit, a new oven connection and moved an existing light fixture in the kitchen. The workmanship is impeccable, and John was a real pleasure to deal with. Communication was excellent, the price quoted for the work was very reasonable, and the work was completed in an impressively timely fashion. I would have no hesitation in using John again in future.

Would highly recommend John as a trusted electrician. Provided an EICR and carried out various jobs including upgrading our consumer unit, changing sockets and switches, and adding new sockets and light fixtures. Feel that the quotes provided were very reasonable considering the quality of work and experience. Felt confident in John's advice at every stage. A very easy person to talk to in person and very responsive to messages. He was punctual and carried out all work neatly and to a high standard. Would definitely work with him again and recommend him to friends and family.

Having recently moved into an old cottage with a detached garage I found that the electrics in the garage kept tripping the house RCD. The existing garage consumer unit was old with wire fuses and no RCD. After contacting John he was able to advise the best course of action which was to fit a new Garage Consumer Unit. He had it installed in no more than a couple of hours and everything is now working as it should be. He also gave some great advice on upgrading the house consumer unit and wiring to the garage. I will definitely use John again since he is willing to give good impartial advice, has very fair prices and has an excellent standard of work.

Called on John to do a small job in our kitchen, and due to poor research on our part the job turned out to be smaller than we had given him reason to believe. Nevertheless John was happy to do what was required. He worked efficiently and speedily and was very friendly and helpful. Because the job was smaller than anticipated he charged us much less than his original, very reasonable, estimate. We were well pleased.

John carried out a number of jobs for us to make our new house our home. We were looking to fit a lot of new lighting, change some sockets to include USB, add a full new socket and wire our boiler. All has been done to very high standard and in an amazing short time. I was very pleased by the solution he thought to add the new socket as he did not make any hole in the wall avoiding any need or re-paint. John has been very friendly and he has been very patient in answering all our questions and helping checking a couple of things not initially planned. A very helpful and highly skilled person. I would highly recommend him.

John visited our house two weeks prior to the work being carried out to gather information on the work and material required. During the visit he checked our kitchen extractor that had stopped working but very quickly solved the problem. He provided detailed quotes for the work required and arrived promptly on the agreed date to carry out the work. The work was carried out quickly and efficiently with minimum disturbance and to a good standard. On this basis I would definitely recommend John and wouldn’t hesitate in using him again for any electrical work we need.

This was John’s 2nd visit. We were so pleased with the work undertaken on his 1st visit, that we immediately contacted him again to remedy some faults from a previous kitchen fit by another company. He arrives on time, undertakes the work in an organised fashion, informs us of progress and leaves everything in a tidy fashion. He has installed light fittings, switches, additional wall sockets etc. and tested everything thoroughly. He is a nice, polite and approachable chap. We would not hesitate to use his services again, Our female tabby cat even allowed him to stroke her, which is most unusual for her!!

JS Electrical have fitted wall lights for me in my lounge and dining room, and because I was pleased with the standard of work I asked them back to fit an outside power supply to my greenhouse. On both jobs I was informed about all aspects of the work being undertaken and the work was carried out to a high standard at the time agreed and for the price agreed. I am happy to endorse the company on that basis.

As a single older female I had been ripped off by another "electrician" 3 other electrical companies came and inspected the work and walked out saying they would not touch it. John came in, sorted out the problem quickly and efficiently, reasonably priced, and cleaned up any mess. I would have no hesitation on using him again .

John was a fantastic electrician to work with. He did multiple jobs for us including fitting new LED lighting, installing new heaters, and adding new plug sockets within out work areas. Timescales and budgets were all met and John was happy to provide quotes and advice whenever. John was incredibly friendly and polite, and very easy to work with. I would highly recommend him.

John Strachan had done a number of electrical work around my property and although is in great demand, if he schedules a job, he is there on time with everything to hand. Leaves the job clean and tidy. Very reasonable charges and has gone out of his way to help e.g finding copies of paperwork that I had lost. Highly recommended.

We had John in to fit some lights in our kitchen: under counter lights and spotlights in the ceiling. We were very happy with both the price of the job and the work done. We actually liked John so much that we booked him for another job: to install an outside light, and again, we are really pleased with the work! We thoroughly recommend John for any electrical work needing done. We have passed his details onto both friends and family, and 2 of these now have jobs booked in with him after seeing our kitchen lights. I am sure we will use him again in the future!
