Martin fit us in at short notice after I'd realised I'd been overly ambitious with attempting the work myself. He fitted a new light pendant for us, worked quickly and left the place tidy. Reasonably priced too. Would highly recommend!

Found Markel on Which? Trusted Traders. We were given good advice and good suggestions when Martin visited to see the job. They were to fit new kitchen lights and wiring and then to diagnose a problem with an outside light. When doing the work Martin and Niall worked well together and made rapid progress with little mess. At all stages they explained what they were doing and how they would overcome problems. After discovering the fault with the outside light was in the wiring they suggested a completely different solution that avoided mess and disruption. All the work was completed quickly and carefully and we are very satisfied with the result. We were dreading carpets having to be lifted in the bedrooms above the kitchen to do the wiring but they did this easily and cleared up the little mess left at the end. We would certainly use them again and would recommend them to other people.

I contacted Martin for the first time after finding him on Which? Trusted Traders, as it seemed safer than randomly searching for traders on google (which I did recently when seeking a joiner – with disastrous results). This time round I know I made the right choice. Martin and Niall fitted two inline extractor fans, undertook some re-wiring to add additional switch functions to our existing kitchen lighting and installed a double socket. There were some tricky aspects to the re-wire but the work was in the right hands. Martin and Niall did a really excellent job. They demonstrated themselves to be experienced, methodical problem-solvers. They were also friendly and courteous and treated our home with respect. They cleaned up as they went along and their price was right. If you're looking for top-notch work I can't recommend them highly enough.

We needed our outdated electrics completely redoing in our outhouse, and outside w.c, so I found Markel Electric on Which?. Martin was polite, offered advice when asked, and explained not only what he was planning on doing, but also why. We had a quote within 24 hours of his visit and the work was completed on time, as promised, to a very high standard with no residual mess. Certainly competitively priced too. I would not hesitate to recommend and will use him again when needed.

Induction Hob and Lighting

Martin and his son were extremely prompt, polite and efficient. They sourced and replaced some ceiling lights for us and removed a gas hob and replaced it with an electric induction hob, not an easy job but one which they completed with no fuss or complaints. Great value for money too! I definitely recommend them.

Both Martin and Niall are clearly very experienced and quickly traced the fault to a cable feeding an appliance on the lighting circuit. Very thorough, communicative and reasonably priced. Helped at short notice. Will definitely use again. Highly recommended!

We had a small job to be done: a new light fitting in the bathroom. Martin replied to our e-mail quickly and arranged to come out within a few days and did the job swiftly with no fuss and bother. Highly recommended

My daughter recently had a major kitchen refit. When the power supply to the appliances failed last week, the kitchen supplier or their so called electrician did not want to know. She had just had the whole house decorated as well so did not want any damage to the Kitchen or hallway. I have used Martin before and rate him highly so I rang him and he came round the next day. After investigation it was obvious that part of the wiring was substandard and needed replacing. Martin managed to replace the faulty wiring and re made all the wiring connections. There was no mess or damage to the decor and no evidence of any remedial work having been done. Brilliant job. I have no hesitation in recommending Martin and will use him again.

Had been attempting to organise a small amount of work and had great difficulty getting someone to do the work, mostly through lack of response. Called Markel Electric, they got the details of what was required, provided a quote and arranged to come round on an day that was convenient for me. On the day they arrived when expected. They were friendly, efficient and the work was carried out as expected. They even tidied up after themselves, which was a nice touch. I would be happy to have further work done by them in the future.
