Not knowing the traders in this field, I picked Steve out of the ether and have been really lucky. He replaced and increased the sockets in our workshop area, and then the main board, tested them all and advised on future maintenance. He is capable, trustworthy and he did a great job for us, and this is a 100% genuine recommendation for a sparky in the Oldham area.

Have used Wellselec on previous occasions so was prepared for the work being done to a very high standard. He installed an outdoor EV charger to the fuse box which he had replaced on a previous job. He had already cleared the installation with the electricity board. The job was done to budget and up to his previous high standards.

Steve fitted a pendant light and switch to a room which had no central light. He came out to check the work required and clearly explained the work involved. Steve arrived promptly to carry out the work and completed it in good time, clearing up any mess. We will be having further electrical work carried out in the near future which we will be asking Steve to do as he provided such a great service.

Excellent all round!
I contacted Steve due to having no hot water. He said he would try to get to me that afternoon and he did! He quickly assessed what was wrong and fixed it. He also re-set the timings on the unit itself so the water is heated up in 4 hours as opposed to 7 which will save me money on my energy bills over the long term. He was punctual, friendly and informative. How refreshing to get a Tradesman you can trust and to be verified by Which? gives you extra peace of mind that he will do a job well. I would recommend Steve without hesitation.

Steve is a very friendly and competent electrician. In the past he re-wired our house and I was impressed at how neatly the job was done. Whenever a tradesperson would come round to the house, they would comment on how well the old cables had been chased! Most recently, a joiner accidentally nailed through an electrical cable for our bathroom light, and Steve was out within 24 hours to fix the problem. He explained all the different options for fixing it, and discussed with us first, before doing another great job. If you’re looking for a great electrician that you can trust, look no further. I would highly recommend Wells Elec.

Excellent from start to finish. Efficient and did a great job. Did a partial rewire on a house purchase. Quoted then quoted again as wanted more work doing then Steve didn't mind when we then added extras and changed our minds. Thanks for answering countless questions and phone calls. For explaining everything. Started the job earlier when the completion date changed. Always answered the phone and any questions. The quote and work was detailed and accurate. Very neat and tidy and even came back a day later then the light fitting wasn't where we wanted it. Thanks for your patience and time. Thanks for everything, would definitely recommend and will be asking you to do further work for an alarm and outside electrics. Faultless. Made the whole process easy. Approachable and friendly. Great workmanship. Thanks for your patience.

This was the second time we've used Wellselec & the service was just as good as the first job. We wanted a CCTV system installing as well as outdoor lighting & hardwiring of a doorbell. A thoroughly professional job all round, tidied any mess made & was conscientious in his work, taking the time to demo both the CCTV system and the mobile app that can be used to control the outdoor lights. A first class job all round, and we'd certainly recommend.

I’ve hired Steve twice after he was recommended by my handyman. He’s fitted outdoor security lighting. Professional guy who worked quickly, charged what he’d quoted for.

We needed a new cooker switch in order to comply with modern regs. We contacted Steve because he is A Which Trusted Trader and local. When Steve came to assess the job he pointed out that as we had 1966 wiring and a fuse box he might discover unexpected problems if he just set about the work. We could either take that chance or have an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) done first. We decided we wanted the EICR which he did and then clearly and simply explained his findings to us. He recommended rewiring as the old wiring, although still safe is at the end of its life. However he did not pressurise us at all but did suggest a way of resolving the immediate problem so that we could safely install a much needed replacement cooker. He installed a modern RCB board and ran the new cooker cable from that and installed the cooker switch at the required safe distance. He also replaced understairs lighting on a new wire as the existing one turned out not to be earthed, and he very neating put in a new double switch on the kitchen tiles plus trunking so no retiling is needed. Before leaving he walked through the house explaining exactly what rewiring would involve and the best and worst case scenarios for mess and disruption. Again no pressure just clear, friendly, understandable information. We are both pensioners and somewhat daunted by the thought of a rewire but when we are ready to go ahead we will return to Steve. We are very happy to recommend him to new customers.

Steve has installed an EV Charger, in readiness for the EV I have ordered. I contacted him originally following a search on Which Trusted Trader and he responded quickly. He came to survey the site and talk to me about the options, before providing a quote that I accepted. He gave me his timescales and stuck to them, although I asked him to delay a week, which he was happy to do. The work was completed quickly, with minimal hassle and Steve kept me updated regarding progress. I also asked Steve to look at the power to my greenhouse, which had stopped working. He identified the probable cause, which will require some additional work and I hope to engage him to come back to complete that soon. I have no hesitation in recommending Steve to anyone who is looking for an experienced and reliable electrician.

I had an MCB trip switch in my fuse box which wouldn't reset, leaving us without power in the kitchen. I had tripped the switch deliberately so I could replace a power socket top, but couldn't get the switch to reset afterwards. Steve was recommended through a friend, and after a brief discussion we fixed a time for him to come. He came at the agreed time. He found the root of the problem - the trip switch itself - very quickly, and was able to replace the MCB with a compatible spare. I would recommend Steve to anyone needing a reliable and friendly electrician!

Work on new home

We had used Wellselec before, first at our old home to replace an damaged and old fuse box and then to check the electrics at our new home. Both were done to a high standard. This job involved replacing the fuse box, bringing the earthing of the water and gas up to a modern standard, putting in sockets for an electric oven and hob, reconnecting a socket and putting an additional socket in the kitchen. The fuse box was installed neatly and the cables were tidy compared to the cat’s cradle before. He vacuumed up as he went along, kept the place clean and put everything back. He was unhappy about the aesthetics of one solution to putting in an earth cable to the gas meter however between us a new route was put in place which was inconspicuous. He was more than helpful and we would use him again. The work was done to schedule and budget.

It's always tricky finding decent tradesmen, but Steve was recommended by a friend and it was reassuring that he was on Which? Trusted Traders. The job included replacing the consumer box, installing several data sockets and replacing all accessories (faceplates). Steve visited our house and gave a written quotation by email. The work was completed to a high standard and he cleaned up well. I noticed he brings his own vacuum cleaner and also protected our new carpet with masking tape and cloths. Good communication throughout (phone + WhatsApp) and a friendly guy to boot. We've already used him again for a smaller task.

Installation of outside box and wiring from meter to fuse box
Customer Service
Quality
Value
Very professional, caring and considerate to my needs as a customer. I've had my meter moved to outside my bungalow in collaboration with Northwest Electricity. Steve installed my outside meter box, ran the cable up inside the cavity of the wall and having to move some roof tiles to get access, fed the cable on a very tight bend into the loft, across and fed down to my fuse box in the kitchen ready to connect up after Northwest Electricity moved my meter to my outside box. This was an awkward job but he did it exactly the way I wanted it (no wires showing and securely and safely tucked away out of site). Today after Northwest Electricity finally moved my meter and main fuse into the outside box, Steve on very short notice (within 2 - 3 hours) on his usual busy day, came to complete the installation of connecting the cable into the fuse box. Polite, courteous, very professional, understanding of customer needs and will go out of his way to do the job the way you need it. Also very important the good quality of work he does far exceeds the fair prices he charges. I personally will only be using them to do my bungalow complete rewire sometime this year, after some other structural work is eventually done first.

We needed an electrician to come and run a full kitchen's worth of sockets and pendant lights at very short notice, as we had a plasterer waiting to start the following day. Wellselec came, assessed the job, gave us a very reasonable quote, and returned exactly when he said to complete the work to a very high standard, coming to check with me on positions of sockets and switches before running each line. He left the area tidy, was polite, amiable and the quality of his work is excellent. I would not hesitate to have him back to complete other works for us and would absolutely recommend his services to anyone who needs an electrician.

Steve has restored civilised living to our home and restored my faith in tradespeople! He has replaced a shower and upgraded our bathroom ventilation and heating systems.

All his work has been carried out to the highest standard and he has always been prompt, hard-working, and left the place clean and tidy.
