Latest Reviews and Feedback

Pete King carried out a variety of electrical improvements and repairs for us. We found him to be extremely professional and reliable and his work is of a high quality. We have no hesitation in recommending him.

FC 09 21

Quoted for and replaced our old fuse box with a fully up to date consumer unit. Arrived on time, did the job quickly and efficiently and left no mess. They also did all the necessary notifications and paperwork, and even charged less than the quoted price as the job was easier than anticipated. A straight forward and hassle free experience so I would recommend them for any electrical job.

PS 07 21

Pete has visited twice recently, once to replace a light fitting and once to replace our fuse board. He was fantastic on both occasions - punctual, efficient and friendly, and kept us informed throughout the whole process. I will definitely be using King Electrical Services for any future issues, and would fully recommend the company to anyone.

NG 07 21

We recently employed Peter King to inspect and test our electrical installation in the house and rectify any components non-compliant or unsafe. We were very impressed with Peter's honest and clear explanations of the work needing to be undertaken. The replacement of our fuse board was necessary and attention to some lighting and cable trunking. The work was completed quickly and the Building Regulations Certificate of Compliance sent to me within two days. I believe the cost of this work was reasonable. I would, therefore, highly recommend this company.

JR 07 21

Installed external power supply and ethernet cable. Found time in his schedule to come when we needed the work done. All good!

Pete was prompt in his arrival, advised clearly about what was required, was considerate in the house and of us as customers, and completed the jobs effectively and efficiently. Highly recommended.

Pete is our super go-to electrician. We know he’ll be reliable, fair and it’ll be easy to talk through the requirements. The job will then be completed thoroughly, safely and without fuss.

KS 04 21

Peter King was able to come to our house at short notice to investigate an issue with our sockets randomly losing power. He described what the problem was likely to be, opened our fuse box and showed me the issue. His prediction was completely correct! He resolved the issue, which was a potential fire risk, and provided a lot of useful advice on how to improve the safety and reliability of our electrical system. He is very well versed in the regulatory aspects of the job and solved our problem pragmatically and for a very reasonable price. We will be keeping his details for future jobs and thoroughly recommend him for household electrical work.

Pete, of King Electrical Services, came out just to look at the jobs but managed to do a few of the smaller ones on the day. (Even fixed a loose cupboard door on his own initiative.)

Difficult to find a tradesman to do the little jobs these days so I was glad when Pete said he was available after giving him a brief description of the work to be completed. Not only was Pete friendly and courteous , he was swift to respond. Pete solved my electrical problem quickly and efficiently, letting me know what was wrong and what the solution was. I’d highly recommend Pete for all electrical work.

JK 09 19

Pete was recommended to me by a neighbour. He did several jobs throughout the house, and made suggestions where I could save money on the work I needed doing. He was everything you hope a tradesman would be, reliable, punctual, friendly and professional, and completed the work on time. He also left everything clean and tidy. I have no hesitation in recommending Pete, and will definitely use him again should the occasion arise.

JD 04 19

Local electrician who turns up when he says he will, happy do do those small jobs, leaves the place clean and tidy and is reasonably priced.

LP 03 19

I have had an issue with a single socket being a pain in back for almost a year playing funny. Somehow a downstairs socket was linked to upstairs and I could not sort it out. Quotes from other electricians were ridiculous so my neighbour advised to check with Peter. Peter came and sort it out in a hour. All I can say that the job was done to highest professional level old flaky sockets and connector was replaced too for the fraction of what other were quoting. Thanks Peter!

IJ 03 19

We were very impressed with King Electrical Services. From our point of enquiry to work completed we found Pete to be courteous, prompt and he had a very high standard of work. Any mess was always cleared up and he always explained what he was doing. Highly recommended, so much so we have booked some more work in!

My central heating clock stopped working on New Year's Eve. I rang Peter King, who arrived within 15 minutes, and diagnosed and fixed the problem. He explained the work and was polite and efficient throughout. I would certainly use him again for any future electrical jobs and can highly recommend him.

JD 01 19

Woke up on the Saturday before Christmas to find none of my plug sockets were working. Deep joy. Tried a few things but no avail. So I started phoning around electricians, not all answered or fancied the job. But luckily I tried King Electrical Services, just as I was thinking of throwing out the contents of my fridge and freezer. Peter was a really friendly, thorough guy offering a first class service. Thanks. Highly recommended.

LS 01 19

Peter King is polite, helpful, flexible and reliable. Work was carried out professionally and in a timely manner. We would use his services again.

KP 12 18

Peter King has served us exceptionally well and I cannot recommend him too highly. Our house was given a major makeover before we moved in five years ago, when the electrical work was done by another electrician. When the lights on our top floor stopped working recently, Peter came promptly to investigate and found that there was a significant latent fault with the lighting circuit. So he wrote a cogent report and steered us through the process of referring the fault to the NICEIC. As a result, they agreed for the work to be done at no cost to ourselves under their insurance scheme. So Peter and one of his colleagues returned yesterday and put everything right, with the minimum of inconvenience to ourselves, in a way that has left our home completely undamaged. My wife and I are extremely grateful to him and will not hesitate to use him again in future.

BM 11 18

Changed x20 lights to Aurora MPRO as recommended, cannot fault service, excellent. Strongly recommend.

DB 11 18

Very polite and helpful. Goes above and beyond. Second time I have used King Electrical Services and would recommend them without hesitation.

JB 11 18

I can confirm that I have used King Electrical Services and was very pleased with the services and prices quoted. Pete uncovered a major issue with our electrics and after discussing the situation with us he went ahead and installed a new fuse box and checked all the outlets and connections throughout the house. His attention to detail was exemplary and I am extremely pleased that we hired him and I would recommend him to anyone whatever size of job they may have. He left us with a much safer house and was a pleasure to have in our home.

Highly recommended.

GG 10 18

Extremely helpful on being contacted and prompt in response. Thorough and methodical in dealing with problems and provided clear explanations as to work being carried out. Recommended.

RG 10 18

Polite, knowledgeable, helpful with options, and highly effective in replacement of two ancient fuse boards. On time and just inside estimate in spite of dealing with unexpected electrical hot spot. No hesitation in recommending.

JB 09 18

We called out Peter King to look at some faulty wiring and install a ceiling light. He was very reliable, helpful and reasonably priced. As well as fixing the faulty wiring he came up with improvements to our lighting. We wouldn’t hesitate to use him again.

AM 07 18

Pete did an excellent job fitting lights under my kitchen cabinets. The work was finished to a high standard and my house was left tidy. It was great to have someone who didn’t rush the job but worked carefully and considered everything before starting. I would highly recommend him.

SS 07 18

I have been using King Electrical Services for all of my electrical work around the house for many years now. The standard of work is excellent, he talks through the options to get the best result, is very considerate around the house ensuring little mess and clears up if any is created and is a very friendly and reliable person. In the last few years we have new electrics taken into the garage and outside electric points connected up, a new outside lantern fitted which looks amazing, extra sockets fitted in our hallway and the replacement and testing of our triple smoke alarm system. I would thoroughly recommended him to anyone who requires help with their household electrics.

MT 06 18

Pete has carried out work for us on a couple of occasions. Recently he fitted new spotlights for the kitchen and bathroom and a new extractor fan for the bathroom. As part of his quotation he gave excellent advice regarding the options for the lights and fan. He is polite, efficient and tidy. I would have no hesitation in recommending Pete for any job, big or small. We will definitely use his services again in the future.

PB 04 18

Pete did a great job for us installing spot lights in the lounge, dining room, hall and cloakroom. This is the second job he has done for us and he comes highly recommended.

CG 03 18

At Christmas, a fault in our domestic electrical wiring resulted in no power to the downstairs lighting circuit. I contacted Kings Electrical Services who attended promptly and after several hours traced the fault to wiring in the back of a plug socket.  Having rectified the fault, Mr King found that the consumer unit had been installed incorrectly and needed replacing.  This work was then undertaken and the appropriate certificates issued as required by the local authority. This was a complicated job and was undertaken most professionally.  I have no hesitation in recommending Kings Electrical Services.

CL 03 18

We have recently used Peter King for a number of jobs including installing a new RCBO box, providing an extra kitchen cooker circuit and installing bathroom ceiling downlights.  Pete was enormously helpful in explaining the various options available for each job and giving his recommendations.  All the work was carried out very efficiently and in a timely manner.  We are extremely pleased with the high quality of the workmanship which has all been to exacting NICEIC standards.  Pete is very tidy and works with a minimum of disruption.  He is reliable and trustworthy and we have every confidence in the works he does and are pleased to very highly recommend him.

AM 03 18

I have used King Electrical Services for a couple of years now and have been very pleased with the service received.  Pete has always been very polite, professional, reliable and punctual.  I would have no hesitation in recommending him and will continue to use his services for all my electrical needs.

Pete has done a couple of domestic jobs for us now, both times he was able to come out quickly, the quality of workmanship was great and he's a very nice chap. Highly recommended.

SW 03 18

Peter recently replaced the old fuse box in my flat. He arrived as arranged to quote and clearly explained my options and what was involved. He arrived exactly when arranged to carry out the work and I had no hesitation in leaving him to it while I went to work. He left everywhere very clean and tidy. He is professional, reliable and friendly. I will most certainly use him for any future electrical work I may need doing and would highly recommend him to anyone.

JW 03 18

Pete did a full house rewire. He was completely trustworthy, did the work to exacting standards, never cut corners and always spoke to me first if an unforeseen problem occurred. Workmanship was first class, he was tidy, timely and fair on costs. I never had cause for concern or doubt with Pete which is why I would always use him again.

GB 03 18

We have been using Pete for over ten years now as our electrician as he is super reliable, honest and trustworthy. His work ethic is excellent never giving up on a problem - always finding the solution.  He is also VERY tidy. (And kind to our two dogs!) 

JC 03 18

Peter recently replaced our old fuse board with a new 10 Way RCBO fuse board. He spent a lot of time checking the existing circuitry before removing the old board and installing the new one with a minimum of fuss and disruption. Highly recommended.

TT 03 18

Mr King has done all our electrical work for us over the past years. This time the main project was a new fuse box, also new lights in the porch and outside, then a light in a bedroom. We have every confidence in him. He explains the work to be done very clearly, shows us our options and then if he comes across a problem with our wiring, he takes a photo and explains what needs to be done. He is very tidy and cleans up any mess. Works hard and efficiently. Very cheerful and brightens up the day.

SB 03 18

Cannot recommend Peter King highly enough. Great workmanship, efficient, nothing too much trouble. Gives helpful advice where practicalities and costs are concerned. A very pleasant personality as well.

JA 03 18

Great service. Very tidy work and very polite. I had an unexpected fault and he visited quickly, diagnosed the fault and fixed it as quickly as possible. Good price and very trustworthy. Definitely recommend :)

HP 03 18

I phoned King Electrical Services and he arranged a time and date, quoted a price which was reasonable.  After doing the job he took the time to explain how the cooker worked and even showed my daughter the fuse box and how that worked if anything failed in the property.  He was polite and so helpful.  He provided a certificate with the bill and I cannot praise him enough.

TC 07 17

Pete King undertook a major upgrade of the electrical services throughout a 2/3 bedroom house, including the fitting of a new consumer unit, and subsequently installed external lighting to the rear garden. He was a pleasure to work with. He listened to what we wanted, made suggestions from his wide experience and submitted a detailed estimate with fully priced options. After we had placed an order with him, he came on the date agreed, undertook the work efficiently, without mess and for the price he had submitted. No haggling, no excuses. The paperwork that followed was in accordance with NICEIC requirements. We then had an emergency problem (nothing to do with his work) and he responded within 24 hours to something that was really very small and hardly likely to make him a fortune. Class company, great service, really nice guy to deal with.

RA 03 16

Pete recently carried out electrical works at my property and I would highly recommend King Electrical Services on the basis of my experience. Very friendly, efficient, professional and competitive rates. Nothing was too much trouble. 

NH 02 16

Pete recently did a major electrical fit for us as part of our home extension project, working in what were at times difficult conditions. He is professional, polite, worked really hard to get us what we wanted (unlike some of our other contractors!) and gave us good advice when we needed it. We were really pleased to have Pete working for us, and will be hiring again in future to do more work on our garage. I have no hesitation in recommending King Electrical Services. 

SU 02 16

I contacted King Electrical Services Ltd and spoke to Pete who came himself to change an outdoor light fitting which needed replacing. He was very polite and advised me throughout exactly what he needed to do as the original wiring was confusing even to him but with his expertise he was able to refit a new outside light which he did very neatly and I was more than happy with the finished result so would have no hesitation in recommending him to others. One very happy customer thank you Pete.

SS 08 15

We would not hesitate to recommend King Electrical Services to anyone.  They were prompt and efficient at undertaking the work with minimal disruption to our usual routine and even returned the next day to sort out the little glitch which had arisen from something I had done with the some earlier wiring.
