Richard really did a great job making my first flat safe and unfortunately working alongside other difficult contractors. He was always polite and accommodating. The fuse board of the flat had not been looked at for 15 years and needed replacing and all electrical outlets needed testing and replacing. He added some much needed extra points in rooms. He really did an amazing job and i appropriate the time and effort put into making the flat safe and usable again. Thank you Richard!

Would highly recommend Richard. We found his details on the Which? website, he has completed two jobs for us - a basic fuse wire switch out and safety assessment, then a replacement of the full consumer unit (including full testing and certification). Was on time, polite and tidy.

Richard Sanders did a great job for us, installing emergency lighting, smoke alarms, motion sensor lights and a new consumer unit for the communal areas in our small block of 10 flats. As well as carrying out the work quoted for, he included a few little extras at no additional charge. He was always polite, courteous and explained what he was doing and has provided the appropriate certification for the work very promptly.

Richard installed lights and power sockets in our garden and connected them back to our internal fuse board. He provided a detailed quote with options for us to choose from and precise information about the fittings and cabling he proposed. The job required two visits to fit in with other works we were doing in the garden - first to lay the cables, the second to install the fittings. He worked diligently and carefully ensuring everything was installed neatly and securely. He was always punctual and is a very pleasant and honest person to deal with. We will definitely use him again.

I needed new wiring for a new induction hob and oven, as well as additional sockets. Richard also spotted problems from older electrical work, which he suggested could be repaired, but wasn't in any way pushy about doing. His approach to doing a good job, being on time, being polite and being helpful was refreshing. Most importantly his quote was competitive. I will definitely call on Richard if I need work done in the future.

Initially identified RS Electrical online as candidates to replace a failed kitchen fan. Was so impressed by the service and attention to detail on that occasion that I subsequently instructed Richard to install a replacement Consumer Unit - some additional down lighting and a 13 amp socket. All completed to specification to budget and on time on the appointed day in the most courteous and efficient manner possible. J Stuart. London SW1

Richard performed an exemplary refit in our dated communal areas to modernize the lighting and install a fire safety system to bring us up to code. We are a share of freehold community of 8 flats in x2 Georgian terraced houses. Richard quietly got on with the job at hand and was efficient in what he did. Pricing was acceptable and certification paperwork immediately after the works finished. Really recommend Richard for all your electrical needs! Dan

I contacted Richard for a quote for a number of jobs at my home in December. He was very quick to respond to the request and to come round to review the work and I received a quote within 24 hours after. At the time I was not able to move ahead but I recently recontacted him to replace a fuse board initially. It will be the first of many jobs as Richard did a really great job and was as quick in his turnaround both on communication and on the work itself as previously on the quote (emailed him Wednesday, he's completed the work by the following Monday). Great communication also about what can and can't be done at my property, really helpful for a first time buyer, and did not (like others who quoted for the work) get the sense that any job was too small or question was too basic for him. Thanks, Richard. Will definitely use your services again!

Richard worked for me first, providing a creative solution to bypassing inadequate circuitry in an old property. He subsequently returned to replace a raft of obsolescent wiring and circuit boxes which were a potential firerisk. Responded quickly to call out, scheduled work promptly and reliably and reasonably, was an incredibly tidy and pleasant man to work with. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Richard to anyone who wanted to deal with someone they could really feel comfortable with which getting a job done very professionally.

I found Richard on Which? Trusted traders and was impressed straight away by his responsiveness. He came to visit my flat a couple of days later to talk through a shopping list of work I needed doing. Richard is friendly and helpful and offered advice on my changes and guidance on the regulations. He prepared a quote and we arranged a date a few days later to do the work. Richard got everything done before I got back from work and everything is working perfectly. I would certainly recommend Richard, he made the whole process seem easy.

Richard has provided a truly fantastic service to us in our London apartment, which we rent out to a tenant. Our tenant, it turns out, has very particular requirements when it comes to lighting and is also very tricky to pin down due to lots of work travel. This made communications + appointment scheduling something of a nightmare, but Richard's patience, decency and professionalism throughout were flawless. I was, and am, very grateful to him. The work is now completed, to an excellent standard, and everyone is happy. I won't hesitate to use Richard again.

What can I say about Richard that hasn't been said already! - Awesome, honest, brilliant and very approachable to name a few. A very nice person who explains clearly what needs to be done, and advises in plain english the sticking points of buying a property. Produces an EICR report within very good time frames and it's clear with pictures of said issues. He has always responded promptly, honestly and brilliantly to any questions I have asked. His guidance on our complex matter has been second to none. Thoroughly recommend Richard for any job.

Richard provided an Electrical Inspection Report for us whilst we were purchasing our flat - he clearly explained to us what was needed, organised with the estate agent access to the property and promptly provided the excellent report and quote for works as we requested. We then completed on the property and Richard made himself available (at relatively short notice) to complete all of the works. He came to run through what we wanted and advised on safety standards. He completed the work the next week to a fantastic standard. We would certainly recommend Richard - A++

I was impressed with the reviews that I had read in relation to Richard's work prior to contracting his services, and having had one or two very poor experiences with previous electricians I did wonder if the level of service could really be as good as described on this site. I had no cause for disappointment whatsoever. Richard provided an absolutely excellent level of service in terms of advice and assistance, reliability, professionalism, promptitude and quality of work, and with a friendly and affable disposition. In short, Richard is probably the best tradesperson I have ever hired and his services are indeed exceptional and come highly recommended. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Richard again as I genuinely appreciate his approach to the work that he does and service he delivers. I only hope he doesn't get too busy as I am strongly inclined to seek out his services again for future projects!
