At the Benefice of Canton we use Simon for all our electrical works. His work is of the highest standard; he is trustworthy and reliable. Wouldn’t consider going anywhere else.

Reviewer: Jeremy Huggett
A first class electrician and a lovely guy to have in your house . Totally reliable in all respects and I would highly recommend him. He has done 3 jobs for Jerry and I now and I wouldn’t contemplate having anybody else in the future. Very professional, a clean worker and costs realistic.

Reviewer: Guy Fryer
An absolutely excellent experience with Simon from start to finish. A lovely person to invite into your home to work.

Reviewer: Tim Townend

Had a RCD tripping which led to us being without heat and hot water on a freezing cold weekend. Although have a Homeserve policy no-one avaiable 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!

Reviewer: David English

Simon was courteous professional, on time and worked to a good standard. We had one issue, which boiled down to miscommunication. Once aware, Simon did all he could to resolve the issue. For me, this was more important that the work itself. I would happily use Simon again.
