    Good young professional who knows his stuff and committed towards his work at hand.

    Quote was £50 ; work was to replace a damaged fuse and have a quick look at wiring. It ended up taking 5 mins of work and 15 mins of discussions as I had a few questions but got asked £60 for this. Not only it does not match quote but it simply sounds unfair given the work done on this.
    However, Ishmael certainly knows his stuff but a lack of commercial sense in my opinion.

  • Domestic lighting and plumbing

    On the visit to carry out the work to my lights, on changing a transformer my whole set of lights were blown. After 2 hours of investigation the problem wasn't identified but I was told it was fixable but with a little more time. I asked him to come back to me as soon as possible as to how and when the job could be done but I haven't heard anything for close to 2 weeks and was left in a much worse position than when I started. Luckily I have just found someone else who rectified the problem extremely quickly and I now have lights again.

    diligent electrical's reply:

    I was intending to get back to the client and messaged him to tell him I was on a project he also told me it was no rush as he still had lights in the passage. I also messaged him to tell him I could come this Thursday and recieved no reply. But I'm glad he sorted the problem but there was no need for him to leave negative comment on my account.. Read all my feedback and you will see I'm very reliable..
