I cannot recommend JK Electrical enough, gave me a very good quote and had the honesty to significantly reduce the bill on finding some work was not required. Jim is extremely knowledgable in all aspect of electrical legislation and has been exemplary in sending me all follow up certificates. It is nice to be able to recommend an electrician who's work is of the highest standard and who goes the extra mile as a matter of course. I will have no hesitation in using his services again in the future and suggest to anyone reading this review that they do the same.

Replace socket box Electrical
After initially hiring Jim for what I thought to be a fairly small job on a plug socket the project quickly grew arms and legs as the problem was larger than I realised. Jim was fantastic and was able to talk me expertly through the added process of what would be needed to progress the job. He was also able to recommend a plasterer, this was invaluable as this was another area I knew nothing about. Both jobs were really well done, quickly and professionally. I wouldn't hesitate to use Jim again (already planning on it) or to pass on his name to anyone I knew looking for friendly expert advice and great service. Two thumbs up.

new electrical sockets Electrical
A very prompt reply to my initial request, followed up by an equally prompt quotation. When Jim came to view the job he checked everything thoroughly, taking a socket apart to check the circuit (sorry Jim if that's wrong), went under the house to check things there and it's not clean down there! He fully explained every detail about the job and what it would entail. Jim is very professional in his manner and equally so when carrying out the job, especially when he came up against a few hiccups with it being an older house. Nothing phased him and the job was completed to a very high standard and I would highly recommend Jim to anyone requiring electrical work.
Thank you Jim for a job very well done.

Do not hesitate to call on Jim for any job requiring an electrician. In every way, Jim surpassed all my expectations. He shows up on time, his communication is superb throughout the process, and his quotes are extremely reasonable (seriously Jim, you could charge much more and it would still be worth it!). Jim is honest to a fault as well, and will inform you of cheaper options (at a loss to his potential earnings) if they are available (thermostatic vs. electric shower, in my case). He and and his assistant do the work swift, tidily, and clean up everything behind them. Jim is just the consumate professional and a gentleman to boot. Contact him for your electrical jobs, you will not regret it.

hard wired smoke alarm EICR and PAT Electrical
Excellent Job Done..
It's always a little traumatic when choosing a tradesman, But I have to say, Jim's electrical services were excellent & done in a very professional and timely manner. He made immediate contact by telephone and then kept in touch by explaining in detail all works needed & confirmed all costs involved. Not only did he do a fantastic job he was extremely reliable & also gave a lot of support in making sure that any quotes were within my budget..which resulted in building up a trusting & good working relationship for me.
The job involved was within a rented property which meant him arranging with the tenants who were also very happy and rated Jim as professional, trustworthy and very friendly. I would highly recommend Jim and will certainly use his services again.

It was quite good for me. Jim had given me a free call-out for upgrading new consumer unit. At that time he was also happy to help me to fix the electricity lost in the kitchen for free. After inspecting the things, he explained what he will do in details very clearly and gave me a quote. It was a reasonable price if I compare to another quote from other contractors. After the job done, he was also willing to help me to fix some minor issues around the house as well.

RCD at fuse box for cooker Electrical
The work required was for my elderly parents and Jim called me 20 before he was due to arrive giving me plenty of time to get there. He had also called me to get a bit more information so was fully prepared. He was very friendly and professional, he completed the works he could within half an hour and assisted us getting the help we needed from SPN and Electricity board as he identified they needed to complete external works. He even wrote out the script of what to report to SPN and the call operator was very impressed. These external works got completed Sunday afternoon and Jim came straight out to complete additional works - connecting main earthing conductor as advised was dangerous not to do this right away. He certainly went above and beyond and all this was done on over the weekend. Our family are very grateful. And it this was not already a good endorsement, his pricing was very reasonable, no call out charge, just charged for his time. I would highly recommend Jim and will certainly use his services again.

Garage sockets Electrical
First class electrician, his experience and professionalism shines through in his workmanship; hard working, trustworthy and competitive. Jim instilled confidence from the outset. He was prompt in his response & the only electrician who actually came out to look at the job, testing the existing cabling before pricing it up, which for me, allowed me to take a measure of the man. Jim is a knowledgeable & affable individual, who carried out the work at a convenient time for me and talked through the options consulting with me throughout the job. He worked on installing a new upgraded, conduited ring mains in the garage and laboured tirelessly till the job was done. On completion he issued me with a safety certificate for the work and kept to his original quote.
Jim went above and beyond to deliver a quality installation and happy customer at a very fair price. I would highly recommend JK Electrical and he will be my 'go to' electrician from now on. Thank you Jim

Jim was the first electrician that I invited and got a quick response. Jim was also the only electrician out of all of those who showed interested to come out and complete a proper evaluation before giving me a writing quotation (which was very reasonably) including a complete test before and after the installation. During the evaluation we discussed different options weather I needed a spur time switch and we both agreed that I didn't actually need one due to options that I can do in future developments. Jim worked extremely hard and didn't stop until the job was done.
For anyone who is looking for a electrician who is hard working, trustworthy and works to a high standard should definitely invite Jim to look at your job.

Jim responded quickly to my posted job, and his communication beginning to end was nothing less than exemplary. We agreed a time for Jim to come over and have a look at my electrical problem, and although the job immediately before ran on a little he kept me up to date so there was no guesswork required. Once Jim arrived he was excellent, testing all the sockets with his (very expensive looking!) equipment and determined that the fault was to do with a damaged socket which he had in stock in the van and quickly replaced. Plenty of good chat and useful electrical advice too. All in all a *very* positive first experience with mybuilder.com, and a testament to the site that I will not need to look for an Electrician again unless Jim is booked up...which is a definite possibility, unfortunately!

Jim visited on Tuesday to assess the job and explained in detail what the job entailed. The cooker was due to be delivered on Thursday, called Jim when cooker arrived and he was at my house within the hour. When disconnecting the old oven, he hit a slight snag and the job took a little longer than anticipated. However Jim overcame the snag in a professional and competent manner. Throughout his visit I found Jim to be very professional and knowledgeable tradesman and I highly recommend Jim to anyone looking for a competent and very experienced electrician and I will not hesitate to call on Jim's services in the future. Thanks Jim for a job well done.

Need new plug sockets Electrical
Very happy with Jim's work which was not as straight forward as it should have been. Jim worked through quite a few obstacles to install plug sockets but he was patient and persistent and finished the job exactly as I wanted. He is really thorough and I would certainly ask Jim back for any future jobs needing done. Such a really lovely bloke and price very reasonable.

After several years of hiring plumbers to try to fix my shower, paying call out fees with no success, I eventually believed one when he said I needed a new shower. New shower fitted and the old problem remained. Called Jim out and after three days problem solved. So grateful to him for a thorough job.

Wiring for electric cooker. Electrical
On Jims advice, i actually cancelled the job. Not very often you get tradesmen like Jim. Very honest, even though he was doing himself out of a job.
Have electrical work up coming, and will give Jim 1st shout, purely for his honesty.

Jim came out to fit two box light shelves in my kitchen. Can honestly say he did a brilliant job, at a very reasonable price. A very concientous, and clean, worker, tidied up as he went,and I would not hesitate to hire him again. In fact I've already requested a call back to fit some ceiling lights. Could not recommend highly enough.

Jim Kerr is an excellent tradesman, from first point of contact to the last he was very positive. Sent an immediate quotation after surveying the works required. Cost was excellent for the amount of work required. Works well under pressure considering the amount of joiners that seemed to come and go while he was getting on with the job at hand. Brilliant, would highly recommend Jim and am certainly going to use his services again, and recommend him to family and friends, I believe the joiners took his details too.

Positive Client Reference taken by MyBuilder Electrical
Jim came out to look at a faulty shower switch. On experiencing his professionalism and ability, we also asked for a quote for updating our fuse box which had been needing updating for a long time. Seeing the job that Jim made of our shower and being really happy with the quote, we asked him to go ahead. He turned up on time and talked us through absolutely everything he was doing. I really appreciated that he treated us with respect and consideration. The job was completed to our complete satisfaction and everything has been perfect so far. We could not recommend Jim highly enough. 100% satisfaction. No complaints at all.

Positive Client Reference taken by MyBuilder Electrical
I asked Jim to come and assess some old electrical sockets that were proving difficult to insert the plugs. Prior to Jim coming to assess the job I was impressed by his prompt and professional communications. Jim recommended changing the sockets to new ones and the conversion of a single socket to a double. After quoting a very reasonable price Jim returned and completed the work. The work appears to be done to a high standard and I have been very satisfied with Jims timeliness, professionalism and price. I will definitely use him again and would recommend him to family and friends.
