I’ve included some reviews of customers without a Gmail account added directly to my website over the years.

Reviewer: Dave Cavell. “Simon did a small electrical job for me. Very pleased with the way he communicated with me before the job and with excellent job itself. Very professional service. Thanks Simon”

Reviewer: Tim Jones. “Simon recently rewired the electrical connection which had blown in my garage at the bottom of the garden. He did an excellent job at a very reasonable cost. He was very accommodating in terms of being on-site and thorough with regard to disposing of the rubbish and tidying up afterwards. He also issued me electrical certificates of the work done in compliance with the regulations. I will definitely use his services again without any hesitation”.

Reviewer: David English. “I now use Simon for all my domestic electrical work. He is a really genuine person whose work is always of the highest standard and very well priced. I have no hesitation in giving him the highest recommendation.”

Reviewer: Tim Townend “Had an RCD tripping which led to us being without heat and hot water on a freezing cold weekend. Although have a Homeserve policy no one is available until Monday. Despite switching every appliance in the house off and unplugging it was still tripping. Simon had the best problem-solving article on the web. Eventually narrowed it down to an extension lead that had been hidden behind a skirting board for years. Would never have thought of disconnecting the extension lead without the article. No business for Simon but a lot of appreciation from a warm family!”
