I've had several jobs completed by IES in the past: dead leg removals, EICRs, PATs, etc. They provide great customer service and efficient tradespeople; I'll continue to use them in future. Thanks to the whole IES team for their hard work and quick response times.

As someone who has small infrequent needs for tradespeople, I can find it infuriating trying to find quality companies that care.

IES are a godsend in this regard. I have used them 3 times over 5 or so years now, and right from initial contact I get the distinct impression that my custom is important to them. They turn up promptly at the agreed time. The quality of their work is high. Their price is clear up front and fair. After sales communication - to confirm that the work is satisfactory and to provide the invoice - is clear and helpful. I have never had to chase them for anything.

I would highly recommend them, and would certainly use them again.

I'm going to start with the negatives. I had overhead lighting fitted into my flat, it was floor-lighting only. Instead of raggling the living room wall, the electrician raggled areas of the mains light wire in, then trailed a 4-metre length above the picture rail and tucked it in. It's clear what happened - they estimated 2 days with 2 electricians, it was trickier than it looked, they ran out time, and took an unacceptable shortcut. Also, the light fittings were not aligned centrally.

Additionally, they used my brand new dustpan and brush to clean up, broke the handle and didn't say anything.

I'm giving 3 stars because I had the electrician who took the shortcut's mobile number and called him and he came round and did what I'm sure he knows he should have done in the first place the following morning. I was also reimbursed for the dustpan and brush.

All things considered, I'm happy with the end result and they righted their wrongs very quickly.

I've used IES on a number of occasions over the years for private domestic work and they are consistantly reliable and efficient.

IES offer a professional service and they actually turn up on time and keep you informed throughout the process unlike a lot of other Edinburgh based tradesmen who charge over the top prices, provide inadequate work and decide whether they will turn up on the day or not.

IES even offer an online payment system which keeps track of your jobs and allows easy payments.

IES are a professional firm which I would thoroughly recommend and will use again in the future.
