Moving height of electric sockets - job lot! - Electrical job in Crofton Park, South London

Job description

Hi. All the sockets in our house are at skirting board level. We’d like about 20 of them moved to a reasonable height.

There’s also a couple of additional asks - e.g connecting a bell to the mains and sorting a new outdoor plug.

The electrician who recently fitted a new fuse box estimated it would take one person 1.5-2 days.

Need someone this week so we can proceed with decoration!


Feedback for HBA electrical ltd

This review has been amended after discussion with Rich.

Rich is a very friendly, decent guy who went out of his way to help on tasks additional to those he was being paid for.

However, we encountered several difficulties with his work:
- the kitchen cabinet lights didn’t work as intended.
- the kitchen ceiling lights turned on left/right not front/back.
- none of the wires chased into the wall were plastered / covered at all.

Uncomfortable with the problems we asked a different electrician to come in. He had concerns about quality of the wiring and offered evidence that Rich’s work hadn’t been done in line with what we understand to be the best practise way to comply with the wiring guidelines set out in ‘BS7671 electricians on site guide’ and was quite problematic. Rectifying the issues was not cheap, but Rich does believe he could have fixed the original problems if we’d asked.

Rich is a nice guy but overall we were not satisfied with the quality of the work provided.
