Kitchen lights Electrical
Michel has been absolutely amazing fitting my kitchen lights and the associated appliances. Not only he got on with my requests but he also proved to be a creative mind and came up with very clever ideas. Neat work, cleaned all around, arrived when needed - excellent overall. Hat off - a true professional! At personal level he is funny and chatty as much as he needs to be, kind and and very polite. No question that he would be the first to ask if I ever need electric work but this guy does work for life! Just hire him and it will be no disappointment whatsoever!

re-wire 2 bed flat Maida Vale Electrical
Michael is an excellent electrician. We hired him to re-wire our 2-bed flat.
We chose Michael because he spent time to go through the job, prior to starting, in far more detail than other people we had quotes from in order to fully understand the job. His quote was very reasonable indeed.
Michael worked extremely hard and was flexible around other contractors. He even added an extra light switch in our hallway that wasn’t in our quote, in a position that we’d forgotten to say that we wanted one. From what we can tell his electrical work is faultless.
On this basis we will be hiring Michael in the future for any further work and we would highly recommend him to friends and family.
One final note, Michael obviously has an excellent feedback record on this website. In fact, looking at the only negative comment Michael has from “sdouble”, you can see from Michael’s (correct – we researched these points before hiring Michael) answers that he knows his stuff. So, please disregard this negative comment.

This is our second time hiring Michael to do our electrical job in another property and work has been completed on time and within our budget. We are extremely pleased with Michael's work ethics and his competency in his advices in relation to the electrical works.
Michael always arrive on time and gets the work completed in the agreed time. Clean and doesn't leave a mess. You are in safe hands by getting him to do the job.
Our job involves an installation of a new fuse box, rewiring, hiding several wires into the wall and adding new switches and sockets. In terms of price, he remains competitive and you can always trust that he doesn't overcharges anything.
We certainly will hire Michael again if his services are required in the future.
I would definitely definitely recommend Michael for any electrical works.

Several jobs in house Electrical
Michael is a superhero - Electricity-man! Even when he came to quote, I showed him a socket in my son's room, which sometimes hissed, so he dashed out to his van to get a screw driver and fixed it on the spot without charge. His quote was by far the most reasonable out of the ones I received and for more work. After accepting the quote, he and Femi started at 9am next morning and worked til 7pm. Michael came back next day for 3 hours to complete, even though he had quoted for one day's work. They installed a new 10 way RCD fuse box - in a very awkward place to work, installed a rise and fall light with new switch, an outside light and new switch inside, moved heating control box, fitted cables where wall had been taken away, installed two new plug sockets and new light switches, installed a dimmer switch for spotlights. He also took time to explain carefully how the new fusebox worked, how to test it and labelled everything clearly so I feel confidant using it. I am going to employ him again next week for more work. They were cheerful, helpful and tidy. Highly recommend.

sockets need moving and outside light Electrical
Having missed the 1st appointment to quote due to diary mix up Michael came & quoted & we arranged a day to do the work “Move some sockets, fuse an outside light and add a couple of light switches”He turned up as arranged but having already started the work said he hadn’t realised the job needed more work so would cost me an extra £50 (even though he had seen the job & quoted) on top of this he then tried to charge me more than the original quote. Later he complained that the job was taking too long.
2 of the sockets and 1 light switch he put were left lose & he did not secure them into the wall. This then hindered my plasterers who thankfully sorted for me.
He told me in order to add a light switch to the other end of the wall he would chase it horizontally-when I questioned if this was compliant & safe he told me it was-I have since been told by other tradesmen this is not the norm and would not pass an electrical test if I want to rent out my property. He did not encase the chased wires & the wire into the switch protrudes from the switch. I do not know about electrics so entrusted him to do the correct job, it is since him completing the work I have found out what a bad job he has done. The switch was faulty, not his fault, but he left it, when I called him to ask him to come to fix it he said I did notice that but thought it would be ok. He did come & remedy it.
Michael seems a nice enough man but I feel cheated and would not use him again & would not recommend him.

Michael was great the first time I met him and I was impressed with him over the phone and his follow-ups, but then there was a bit of miscommunication about paperwork which ended up costing me more money than I anticipated. The second time he came round to finish the job off he unfortunately left his phone behind and wasn't able to call me to let me know he'd be an hour late, which was a bit of a nuisance as I'd travelled 40 miles to meet him. I am pleased with the work he did though.

CIVIL Electrical Services's reply:
Pls note: the reason or testing any electrical Installation is to make sure it is safe for continued use. In cases where the installation is unsatisfactory you still need to pay for the Testing Work. It is unreasonable to assume the testing cost will cover all work needed to make the installation satisfactory before the test begins. Sometimes a full rewire is required for an installation to be safe for continued use. In such cases you wouldn't assume the £100 you paid for your Testing should cover a full rewire for the house would you? Some people would!
Did good work and seemed a nice guy - would recommend and would hire again. Thanks Michael

Like everyone else who hired Michael, I can't recommend him highly enough. In short, he was great, brilliant even. He was punctual, polite, hard working, and good to have around. He saved us from a rip off merchant who had walked off the job who quote was originally lower but no doubt would have come back with extra costs - all that, 'I didn't know the wiring was so bad. That'll be another grand please.' Michael was very up front and clear about what needed doing. It's an old house so it wasn't surprising the wiring needed replacing. Our survey said as much. So he saved us a lot of grief and money in the end. He's also very creative and suggested, for very little, we put stylish lights up the staircase. It looks marvellous. We have loads more work to do and will be seeing Michael and his team again. If want your electrics done well and on time, call Michael. If you want to cut corners and take the risk, get someone else. I've got a whole list of cowboys to send your way...

A speedy responose with a reasonable price for the job. The extra cost from the original quote was because the replacement dual plug socket had to be silvery chrome finish (not plastic) to match the rest of the sockets in the kitchen.
Although this was a small job I would be happy to call Michael again as he seems very efficient and on the balll. I'm sure he deserves the excellent reviews he has received on this site.

New lights, sockets & relocate consumer unit Electrical
Michael was polite, punctual and knowledgeable.
He did a lot of electrical work for us, which went beyond the original scope, and did a great job on all of it. We've had so many bad tradesmen in the past that it was really refreshing to get someone honest and diligent like Michael!
I would highly reommend him and will definitely use him for future electrical work.

Amazing and unusual service from this gentleman. As soon as he came to view the job (on a bank holiday) it was clear he was no spin merchant. He was professional, courteous, knowlegeable, straight to the point. Best bit of all I had an emergency and he fitted me in to get me out of a tight spot. He worked overtime to meet the promised deadline.
Crowning point, Great value for money. A real find! 100%!

Michael did a great job, was on time, friendly and professional. He is knowledgeable, likes his trade and takes pride in his work. When asked to do extra work I had forgotten to include in my initial job request he managed to fit it in after we agreed on a new quote. This was very reasonable. He is hard-working and considerate about his clients' property. I definitely recommend him and will employ him again for other electrical works.

Wire in 2 wall lights & 3 new plug sockets Electrical
Michael arrived on time on a Saturday morning, and although the job proved much trickier, stuck to the orginal price but I offered more money as he did such a good job. Very pleasant chap and offered a good solution to a problem we came across. Provided minor works installation certificate when he completed the job and even looked at another socket issue we thought we had with no extra charge. I will use him again for some other jobs I need doing. Would recommend.

Electrical Survey Electrical
Very friendly, suggested I go for the cheaper visual survey as it was all i needed - I appreciated his honesty. His report was detailed and accurate. Would definitely reccomend!
leeann - 12th Feb, 2010 Positive feedback
Michael identified additional electrical problems in my flat and fitted a new fuse box, hence the original estimate increased. The electric shower that he fitted is working well, however, I was unhappy with the untidy way he fitted the towel heater as he has left the surplus flex wrapped around it rather than cutting it to size. I did ask him to estimate for some more electrical work, but he failed to respond to this request. All in all, I feel I can only give him neutral feedback.
annedwards2 - 3rd Feb, 2010 Neutral feedback
CIVIL Electrical Services's reply:
Because you were not there when the towel rail was intall I wasn't sure of the positioning so the flex was intentionally left long until you approve the positioning.
Secondly I would have quoted for your other job but had a bad shoulder as I told you.
pls let me know when to come for the flex I will hack it down no problem
Michael turned up early on a very cold, snowy morning. Almost immediately, he and his assistant managed to temporarily wire our ancient fusebox, restoring our hall and landing lights and intercom. Within 1 1/2 hours they were back with the new fusebox, which they'd had to purchase from Balham.
The new fusebox is much more user friendly and much safer than the old metal one. It also has clearly labled fuses for each particular service.
I used Michael before and found him to be courteous, helpful and efficient.

Michael is definitely one of the best contractors I have ever used. He was polite and punctual and went through great efforts to ensure that the under-cabinet lighting that he bought was too my absolute satisfaction. He worked hard on-site and was keen to do a few extra jobs - he was such a great help to us. He was very kind with his time and explained everything to us calmly and clearly(about the setup) after the instllation. Finally, he cleaned the area himself and then issued us with a hand-written Part P certificate for the work. He will also notify the job to ELECSA via the internet. Michael is simply tremendous and I would have no hesitation in recommending his professional services.

Installing replacement built under oven Electrical
Michael was punctual and friendly. He came around to offer advice before I had bought a new oven, and then did an excellent job of installing it as soon as it had arrived. I would highly recommend him.
simonpw - 15th Sep, 2009 Positive feedback
Michael arrived promptly, and did a professional job as cleanly and quickly as possible. In addition, I found his manner extremely pleasant and he even kept apologising for creating dust (which was inivitable considering he had to drill a hole through the wall!) but he supplied plenty of dust sheets so this was kept to a minimum. I would definitely use his company again and would certainly recommend him.
