Shower switch electrics had blown. Emailed a few traders and East West were really prompt with a reply. Gave a more than reasonable quote in comparison to other quotes received and were more than accommodating to carry out the works when it was convenient for us. I cannot recommend this company highly enough for their service from start to finish. Will be the first company I use should I need any further works done in the future. Excellent service all round.

I had light fittings changed and upgraded, smoke/heat detectors replaced and small electrical jobs around the house. Paul has also done a number of jobs in my rented properties.

I have used Paul for around a year and throughout the many jobs he has done he has done them within a good timescale, turns up when he says he will - almost unheard of these days - carries out the job diligently, cleaning up after himself and has kept me informed of everything he’s doing.

He is the most trustworthy tradesperson I have used and will continue to use.

Paul came out as an emergency when out ceiling lights wouldn't work and the consumer box didn't trip. He was brilliant and worked out what had happened in minutes and fixed it. He will come back to replace the consumer box and quoted a good price. From start to finish, everything was more than expected. Would highly recommend.

Used East West Electrical for many years. They carry out EICRs and remedial work on a contractor basis for my customers and always do a great job. Customers speak very highly of them and say they provide a professional yet affordable service. Wouldn’t hesitate recommending them.

East West Electrical has completed a range of work for us and all to an exceptionally high standard. Internal and external lights, bathroom fans, internal and external plug sockets, underfloor heating units are all jobs undertaken efficiently and fully cleaned up afterwards. Communications regarding the work have all been very professional too. I would recommend this trustworthy company.

Spoke to Paul beginning of April 2021. First date available Friday 30th. Turned up on time rechecking what was required a couple of days before. Did two of the easy jobs and said he needed to take advice on a fan issue in the kitchen. Phoned him two weeks later. He said he had not had a reply from his contact. Thereafter I have heard nothing. If you want the easy jobs done he’s your man. This is now 9th June.

Moderator Response
BUSINESS RESPONSE: I was disappointed to receive your review as I don't think it properly reflects the situation. The "easy" jobs were the jobs you asked me to do and one of them was, in fact, rectifying a sub-standard job carried out by another electrician. With regards to the fan issue, as I explained to you at the time, due to the age of the fan (1960's) that I would need to find out from the supplier, what, if anything, was available to fix the issue. I duly phoned the suppliers but heard nothing back, which is not unusual at the moment as the majority of their staff are working from home and sourcing materials for items of this age isn't easy. As agreed, I said I would be in touch with you once I heard back from the supplier. So far, they have been unable to source anything suitable (although they are still looking) and therefore, I had no further update for you.

You mentioned that you had to wait 4 weeks for me to be available. Like other reputable trades people, I am extremely busy and having to wait is common place. I work to the same timescales and standards regardless of the size/type of job as is evidenced by my other reviews.

Replace Electrical Bonding for gas pipe; Remove old unused coin meter and reconnect fuse box; Replace transformer; Replace light switch.
Very good all round service. Arrived on time. Responded quickly to emails. Estimate was clear and at a fair price.
Very respectful of property and not only tidied after himself, but replaced flooring and other items that had been moved for access.
Highly Recommended

Paul carried out an initial EICR inspection . This was followed up a short time later with remedial works at the property and issuing the updated certificate.

I found him reliable, professional and would definitely use East West ELectrical for any future electrical works.

East West Electrical recently did some external work for us, fixing an external socket and putting sockets into a summerhouse. Paul was easy to communicate with, friendly and efficient. We’re delighted with the standard of work provided, would definitely use East West Electrical again and would recommend to others.

Paul replaced old, inefficient storage heaters. He did the work quickly and arranged for the old heaters and bricks to be taken away. He was extremely patient in answering all my questions. My new heaters provide a level of comfort I haven’t experienced for years.
