Review Comments
Summary: Overall I am happy with the rewiring work East West Electrical did, and found Paul to be friendly and helpful. I think that communication could have been better, and that more effort could have been made to ensure the property left in a reasonably tidy condition.

The price I was quoted was on par with other quotes I got. Ultimately I decided to go with these guys because they gave me the most confidence during their initial visit to my property. They took time to understand what it is I wanted and explained everything to me clearly. I would have given a higher rating had I received a bit more communication about the work itself, once we agreed to go ahead with it together. I was not told the date that work would begin, and turned up at my flat one day after work to find that it had - without me having had the opportunity to move my personal items first. This was a bit frustrating as my items were delicate. There were a number of days where I expected them to be in the property but no work took place, and it wasn't made clear to me why that was. Once work had finished, the hallway carpet (which had been pulled up to allow access) was not put back. It took me a while to find where the carpet had been put, eventually I found it on top of a wardrobe in a bedroom. Also, rubbish was left in the flat for me to remove, which was unexpected as other tradesmen I have worked with have taken rubbish out with them.

That being said, when I wanted something amended, it was done with no hesitation. They were also very willing to put in extra effort to ensure my kitchen floor wasn't damaged, which I am grateful for. I am happy with the quality of the electrical work and trust they did a good job despite my complaints.

Fixing bathroom ceiling recessed lighting. Service from Paul was excellent. Arrived when he said he would, did an excellent job and was also helpful with an unrelated problem. Pleasant and efficient.

Paul has done work for me on several occasions and has always provided total satisfaction. On the most recent occasion I phoned him in the morning, he arrived by lunchtime and did the work right away. Excellent service from a thoroughly likeable man.

Paul and a colleague carried out some rewiring in our old 1930s semi. Our expectations were set that this would potentially be pretty messy.
The job was pretty challenging, but the guys dug in and did the necessary with the minimum of mess. Upgraded fuse box and changed various sockets too.

I'd have no hesitation in using East West in future or recommending them.

I've used PF Electrical a couple of times and Paul is helpful, punctual and reliable. I would recommend.

Most recently Paul installed replacement smoke alarms/carbon monoxide detector along with a new heat detector.

Our shower room fan had stopped working and I contacted East West for a quote to repair. They responded very quickly and provided a quote should the fan be repairable and also one should it need replaced, offering me a choice of fans.
Electrician arrived on time and fitted a new fan as agreed. Very friendly and satisfactory service.

I had new 3 smoke alarms plus a heat alarm fitted (all linked), a new washing machine switch, external lights and a new internal double socket installed. I can't fault the work or service. Paul came when he said he would, was courteous and helpful in suggesting solutions to my requirements, and cleaned up afterwards. I will definitely use his company again, and I am happy to recommend it to anyone.

Job: supply and fit a new external security LED light with movement sensor.
Very prompt response to the initial call and quick to get the job done.
Came back promptly to adjust the after-dark movement sensor.
An amicable professional manner backed with an equally professional and efficient billing system.
A perfect job in every way.
Highly recommended.

Second time we have used these guys, and another great job! Great value for money, lovely service, very efficient. This time it was for the installation of a new living rm light fitting & removal of the old one. (See pic)

Our cat was very taken with the engineer, who he desperately attempted to lend a helpful paw to haha.

Needless to say, would recommend and will use again when we need something else done :)

Cheers.
