Latest Reviews and Feedback

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!)

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.

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.

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.

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 :)

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
