Feedback for NICEIC Tester

This was a biggish and complex job, ranging from e.g. replacing a mains supply cable & consumer unit to fitting a smoke alarm & extra double sockets. Ray quoted a very reasonable price for the work, and dealt with it all very capably. He also always responded quickly to emails, and dealt quickly, courteously and without complaint with any 'snags' I reported. The job did take longer to complete than expected (not a problem for me since I’m retired), but overall, I was very happy both with the work Ray did and with the price I paid. He’s a pleasant, helpful and knowledgeable guy; I’m happy to recommend him to others, and wouldn't hesitate to use him again myself (in fact almost as soon as he’d completed this job, I asked him to do another).
