About

I (Peter Whiting) began working as an electrical apprentice in 1983, this was a full 5 year apprenticeship. On finishing my apprenticeship I set up my own business as a sole trader in 1988. The limited business began trading in June 2002.

The business is family run and some of the electrical services we offer are shown in the details below.

You will see I have many reviews showing despite only being endorsed as a Which? Trusted Trader from April 2018. The reviews I have from before this time are from Which? Members who have used my services and recommended me to other Which? Members. (These reviews are from Which? Local and I am able to now use these within my endorsement) Any questions about the reviews I am happy to answer.

Please contact me on my mobile number to discuss your electrical needs. I look forward to speaking with you.

Regards Peter

I seldom write reviews but in this case I have to say how pleased I was to find such a reliable and competent electrician who went the extra mile! Peter fitted a new electric socket for me, in good time for the delivery of a new dishwasher. At the same time he checked and noticed that I needed a new RCD. He took the time to explain that I needed an older type which was not easily available but which he said he would try to source for me, whilst explaining the price range. He was able to obtain the new part and fitted it within a few days. His fees were reasonable and in accordance with the estimates he had given me. It is rare in my experience to find a tradesman who, in addition to being an expert in their field, also takes the time to communicate with the customer and to explain difficult things in a straightforward way. Peter took the time to telephone to explain the problem and then he solved it for me! Thank you Peter! I hope I don’t have too many electrical problems but would not hesitate to contact Peter again.

I have employed Peter’s electrical services on numerous projects over the past 6 years and have aways found him very professional and personable to deal with. A very experienced electrician, he is extremely skilled and knowledgable and always goes above and beyond to make sure he delivers the best service possible. He is easy to make contact with and answers calls promptly, and his work is efficient and reasonably priced, always carried out to the highest standards. On top of this, he is also extremely friendly and kind! I highly recommend him.

We used Peter's services twice after entering into proceedings to purchase our first home - once to do an electrical installation condition report (EICR) prior to purchase, and after purchase to fix the issues he had flagged. Throughout our email correspondence Peter was always very professional and helpful, and we were able to schedule the work at very short notice, which was great! Prices were reasonable as well. For the 2nd part of the work my partner actually met Peter in person, and she told me he was a delight, very friendly with a great sense of humour and absolutely knew what he was doing. We know that if we have any electrical issues again that we'd go straight back to him. Definitely recommended if you're looking for a skilled electrician!

This is my second time using Peter to fix some home electrics and I was very pleased with his work, timing and pricing. He did a fantastic job sorting out some dodgy wiring done by another contractor which I feared was not easily fixable but Peter did a very neat fix. Recommended!

This morning, I woke up to find that my kitchen had lost power, leaving me without heating or hot water. I consulted Which? Trusted Traders and was impressed by the numerous positive reviews for Peter Whiting Electrical. I phoned Peter, who patiently guided me through a series of checks that weren't immediately obvious to me. After a few minutes, I restored the power with his assistance. He also suggested that I inspect each appliance, as one of them might have been causing the circuit to trip. Everything is now sorted, and there was no charge for Peter's assistance. In today's world, it's rare to receive such exceptional service, which I can only describe as OUTSTANDING. Peter Whiting's contact details are now saved in my phone. When I require a reliable electrician who prioritises customer service, I will not hesitate to call Peter Whiting. I highly recommend his services.

This is a shout out for Peter Whiting of Peter Whiting Electrical Contractors Limited. Peter has recently undertaken several jobs for me including the electrical testing of my house. He identified several items requiring updating in order to comply with current electrical regulations including installing a new fuse box, replacing the worn socket outlets, light switches and pendants and adjusting other non compliant things. He completed the work in a professional and timely manner clearing up after himself as he went along. Peter is an excellent electrician, professional and methodical in his approach. He is reliable and trustworthy and has a very kind and amiable personality. I have no hesitation in recommending Peter Whiting as your go to electrician.

Living in the North West of England, we wondered how to arrange pre purchase electrical assessment in a property in Beckenham. We walked the pages of Trusted Trader. Peter's website impressed us, with a purposeful description of his work and his readiness to assist. We were not disappointed. Peter carried out the inspection punctually and was very thorough and detailed in his report. He identified some areas of concern and we have no hesitation in asking him to complete this work, in due course. We have yet to meet him to thank him. We highly recommend Peter to anyone who requires a pre purchase inspection.

I had the consumer unit replaced in my home. The company was professional and explained all the tests that were carried out before the main job was completed. I would use this service again for other electrical work, if needed, and highly recommend this trade to others.

Peter fitted an induction hob to replace a gas one, which wasn't a straightforward job. He found solutions, discussing with me throughout. He was efficient, reliable and a very clean and tidy worker. The cost was extremely reasonable and I will definitely be calling upon him again.
