It’s not easy working in awkward places, at height and using noisy tools – I’ll tell you that much! But, you will get a quick reply from me.

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

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.

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. I’ve helped hundreds troubleshoot rcd tripping problems in Cardiff, Penarth and Dinas Powys.

You could call other electricians in Cardiff of course….

Instead of completing the form which has everything I need to provide a quick yes or no, you could call others. Calls and texts are free these days, after all. Just keep your fingers crossed:

  • Their number hasn’t changed since last time.
  • 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 on a call out for faulty wiring or a fuse board problem. Imagine waiting in all day for someone to get your sockets back on and the 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.

Or just fill in my contact form right now . Your details arrive Instantly and will be ready for me as soon as I stop for a cup of tea.

You can trust my work and Integrity. I’ll do what is best for you and make you aware of things in your interest whilst working for you. I only want happy customers who recommend me. You can check my DBS and Insurance documents right now on the contact page.

“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 great service 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 registered! They might not be insured and It’s likely you will receive no paperwork. You will be snookered when you want to sell your home or process an insurance claim.

Simon Portillo – The Electrician You Can Rely On.

I will provide you with the necessary certificates (installation and Part P) so you don’t have problems 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. Half and full day hire also available. 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 problem if it’s more involved than can be completed on the day. 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 contact an electrician that will reply, turn up, do a good job, accept your credit card, issue the correct paperwork and happy to help.
