Hopkins Electrical

  • Install garage lighting

    I am very happy with the work carried out by Hopkins Electrical. They arrived on time and were very quick and efficient. Pricing was very competitive and I would definitely use them again.
    Mr Hopkins and his team were extremely professional throughout.

  • New fuse box and full rewire

    Came to quote promptly, gave a good price and agreed a start date. Unfortunately on the day he was due to start work said he had to ‘reshuffle’ his diary and couldn’t start for another 2weeks. This held up all of the other decorating work I had scheduled in so had to get another electrician at short notice. Not great

    Hopkins Electrical's reply:

    Hi Daniel, thanks for your feedback! As we had discussed on the telephone your job was booked in for 2 days and on the day we started there were some issues which meant it would take a further 3 days to complete and at the time I was unable to move work I had already booked in for my customers to accommodate your work. We agreed a new start date of Mon 31st August via email.

    We pride ourselves on our reliability, honesty and punctuality and I'd just ask anyone reading this to look at our 80 positive reviews as a reflection of what they can expect from our service.

  • Quick jobs to fill gaps in between big jobs

    Mr Hopkin's is an excellent electrician and was able to do my jobs with no problems.
    The requested payment was very reasonable I would be happy to forward his name to other customers.

  • Kitchen refurbishment electrical work

    Daryl responded to my job post very quickly came to quote and I booked him in to do the work on very short notice. The work he did when here with my builder was very good, he is skilled at his job. However, he left site without speaking to me (I was in the next room) and updating me on the progress of his work. He left with the cooker switch not completed, two blanking plates (or switches) not installed, and told my builder that a set of electrics was dead where he needed to plaster. I had to go out and purchase and fit blanking plates as I was not happy a live socket was left open, the other socket my builder started to plaster and it blew the electrics. When I tried to get him to come back, as he had not contacted my, only for payment it took a while for him to come back and finish the cooker socket and hang the kitchen lights.
    I understand that perhaps not everything could be completed, or that he was away when I needed him to complete his work. However, I am irritated at his communication as to what was done on the day, leaving my builder to relay the information and I had to hassle him to come back to complete the job.
    Please work on communicating with the customer, as it can avoid a lot of stress and misunderstandings.
