  • Wall lights repair

  • An ECIR certificate is required for a terraced house

    I liked the way Andrew responded to my posted job and he proved to be a very good choice. I would have no hesitation in selecting Andrew again.

  • Ceiling fan installation

    To be fair, I was refunded for his shortcomings; and I did wait for him to clear the refund before posting. However, if I want to hire someone who has a known history of negligence at the workplace and carries out unsafe work only because others were bought out with a refund.

    The main job was to fit a ceiling fan; there is no joist to install it to:
    1. I told him that the job would require putting in makeshift support for the fan, and the other materials three days pior. Yet he showed up without the materials and went to get them. He charged me 30 minutes for his hour-long trip.
    2. He got a piece of scrap wood to use as a support for the joist. Despite my objections, he insisted it would be fine. But, he installed in the most absurd way imaginable: against one joist with a single screw! Anyone with high school physics knowledge could tell him that it would not work. He left a 2.5 cm gap between the wood and the plasterboard. So he could not tighten the mounting bracket (otherwise the plasterboard would break) and the fan vibrates. It did not last 2 days. Here is a picture: https://imgur.com/gallery/BxtGcYu
    3. I called him, he said he "cannot drop his life to fix it" and said he will see if he can find "some time on Saturday" (5 days later). This was not acceptable as my inspection told me that the scrap wood he chose to use was shattering in the weight and vibration and had become a safety issue.
    4. He is very slow; it is by choice as he charges by the hour.

  • Replacing ceiling pendant lights

    We hired Andrew for replacing ceiling lights and pendants throughout the house. He appeared to be working too slow, given he charges by hour. No floor protection used and the debris from ceiling was falling on the floor. He left debris on the wooden floor which we were left to remove. He was at the site only for 2 hours, yes I noted in and out time, but charged us for 3 hours and only manged to finish half of the job. He advised the remaining half of the work would take another 2-3 hours to be done following week. This seemed excessive, so we decided to drop him and hire someone else and glad we did. The other electrician came around with all his productivity tools, finished the remaining work in under an hour and charged us half of what Andrew wanted.

    Hiring Andrew was a mistake I would never repeat again.

    AMK Electrical & Maintenance Engineer's reply:

    Thank you for considering myself, in fact the the time was 2hours and 46mins, I did put myself out and come to your rescue in the evening. I apologise about the mess and offered to clean it up, but you was happy to do it instead. The job was to do a few lights not the whole house. As time was getting late, I thought allow you the rest of the evening to yourself and was happy to return to finish the task. Working outside in the dark isn’t good practice and maybe dangerous.
