“Great service. Polite. Competent. Helpful.” Haydn Cooper

I only want to do good electrical repairs – not something I can get away with. My commercial and domestic electrical work is always carried out to a high standard and compliant for 2021 wiring regulations. Based in Fairwater, I offer local home and business owners a wide range of electrical work including small electrical jobs such as light fittings, shower switches, extra sockets, condition reports and much more.

I solemnly promise not to go all cliché and Ignore you after payment has been made. Rest assured, I’ll be back in the unlikely event of any problems.

“Simon’s attention to detail was obvious from the first contact. He was punctual and professional and completed the work with the minimum of disruption.” Ruth Evans

You could call other electricians of course….

Instead of completing the form which has everything I need to provide a fast response for your planned electrical work; you could call others. Calls and texts are free after all. Just keep your fingers crossed:

  • Their number hasn’t changed since the last time they carried out electrical work in your house.
  • It’s not a quick response you need.
  • They can use a pen, paper and phone whilst on a ladder, squashed in a loft or trying to chase out a wall.

  • They don’t loose the cigarette box your details get written on. I don’t smoke, so no chance of that.
  • They aren’t taking time off (my form will tell you when I am taking time out).
  • They aren’t emergency electricians fault finding a fuse board problem. Imagine waiting in all day for someone to get your sockets back on and the trades person that turns up spends most of the time on the phone to other customers.
  • They aren’t on a training course (there are lots of things to keep up-to-date with in this line of work).
  • They aren’t on holiday.
  • The phone isn’t in the van.

Still not convinced? More reasons I’m the local electrician to choose:

Lots of happy customers throughout Cardiff trust my work and Integrity. I’ll do what is best for you and make you aware of things in your interest. You can check my DBS and Insurance documents right now on the contact page.

Don’t worry about going to get cash- even for emergency call outs or a quick appointment. Preferred payment is bank transfer, bank or credit card.

“Very reliable and efficient service. Attention to detail and tidy. Thanks Simon” Mandy Pope

Having worked for global players with surveys about pre and post sales ; I know what annoys customers and try my best not to do these things! I’ve cut the fluff out and concentrate on giving solid workmanship all of the time.

Competence. Along with the other hundreds of registered electricians in Cardiff; I’m a member of NICEIC (approved contractor scheme). I have the necessary experience, qualifications, insurance and complaints policy in place. Just don’t choose one of the thousands of tradespeople who aren’t with a scheme provider! They might not be insured and It’s likely you will receive no paperwork for fuse board replacement or additional sockets. You will be snookered when you want to sell your home or process an insurance claim.

I will provide you with the necessary installation certificates (and Part P) so you don’t have hassle when selling. When looking for electricians: check their registration status on the Competent Person Register first! Some electrical installations (bathrooms, kitchens and outbuilding supplies in South Wales for example) must be notified to local building control in County Hall. It’s also confirmation they are up-to-date with the wiring regulations and Insured. You can find me by searching my name, or postcode.

You will pay fixed rates for electrical testing (Cardiff and surrounding areas only). Lots of clients tell me this is better than “just fix it” with an unknown bill at the end! I can advise what is necessary to resolve the issue; if it’s more involved than can be completed on the visit. So if you are worried about how much a wiring fault or rcd tripping problem is going to cost, please let me know.

So, that’s (almost) it from me. Fill in the form to speak with a reliable electrician that will reply, turn up, do a good job, accept your credit card, issue the correct paperwork and happy to help.
