Feedback for GBM Electrics

Overall, a very good experience. I would hire Graham again and would recommend him to friends/family.

He was the only tradesmen to offer to come round and look at the job before quoting and his price was competitive. Despite the lighting in my place not being as expected, Graham was able to think of alternatives and still complete the job.

He was happy to explain to me what he was doing and tidied up afterwards.
