ELECTRICAL REPAIR AND NEW INSTALLATION Electrical
Alex arrived promptly to do the jobs listed as arranged. His work is of a high standard and his charges for labour and materials are clearly set out in an invoice at a competitive reasonable price for the day's work. Alex is a patient, polite friendly guy and a very tidy worker. I would highly recommend his services and would definitely employ him again. I would have preferred a choice of warm white LED ceiling lights rather than the less flattering cool white LED ones in the shower room! But that's a very minor point and not one to complain about.

Replace fuseboard in 1 bed flat Electrical
Alex was brilliant. He was easy to communicate with, punctual and friendly. Everything worked out, the job was completed in the expected timeframe including one additional socket next to the new fuse board. An invoice was provided and all the necessary official paperwork filed immediately. The quote was reasonable, not the highest and not the lowest.
We would recommend Alex without hesitation and ask him back for any future electrical work.
Thank you very much.

He carefully explained how he would complete my job and told me that if more work was involved than first thought that he would let me know. He took care of my property at all times and I now feel I understand a little bit more about electrics than I did before. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.

Outside Garden Lighting Repair/Improvement Electrical
Following an earth fault in my garden lighting system I needed someone to find the fault, check the entire system and give it a general overhaul and update where necessary, after 10 years since installation.
Alex' initial site visit quickly convinced me that he was the right person for the job due to his garden design lighting experience but also due to his honest and informed assessment, advice and competitive pricing.
Carrying out the work, Alex didn't disappoint but exceeded all expectations, taking the time to check each item carefully, cleaning spotlights and exchanging/upgrading bulbs; replacing light fittings that had caused the fault with much care in order to protect plants, installing safer switches, and doing a fabulous job connecting a new water feature pump, including hiding the cable.
Alex works with concentration and care, is very clean, aware of his surroundings and thus protective of them, and is very transparent, honest and clear in his advice. Only talking to him for 5min highlights his extensive knowledge, and the fact that he wants the best and safest solution for the client, without overselling or suggesting unnecessary and expensive work. I also appreciated his excellent time-keeping and scheduling management. Great job all around! Will definitely use again!

Alex was extremely punctual and my partner and I were at ease, having him in our home; warm and lovely to talk to too!
The only small problem we had; one of the light fittings was a little loose. Alex didn't hesitate to come back and see what the issue was, he even did an alternative job at no further expense!
We are both in agreement (my partner and I) that we are lucky to of found somebody we like and trust, to be able to call in future for additional electrical repairs/work.

I highly recommend Alex. He was really professional and friendly and actually listened to what I wanted and offered useful suggestions (which is not my experience of all tradesmen I've received quotes from). He gave spoken and written quotes promptly, was easy to deal with, arrived when he said he would and completed the work to a high standard. I'd definitely use him again.

I would HIGHLY recommend Alex Reid . He came to do a site visit and mentioned several things other electricians who had been to quote did not. He sent me a quote that night which was fair and competitive - not the cheapest and not the most expensive - but you do get what you pay for .he was available the following week so my job was done and dusted within 3 days.
I cannot fault him - lovely man - efficient, trustworthy and gave his opinion when needed and could not have been more professional. Thrilled with my new garden lights. He is coming back next week for phase two as I like them so much I want more !!

For the 1st time in a month we can go to sleep not worried we're clocking up a unaffordable gas bill thanks to Alex! We bought a new thermostat after our boiler kept switching itself on and off and ignoring it's settings, the problem was not solved by just installing a new one and Alex came back to change the RF address code on the new one, he also sent us a message afterwards to make sure it was still working correctly after having left the job. Alex was professional, kind, polite, and nice to have around: if we ever had another electrical problem we would not hesitate to get in contact with him again.

Unfortunately i was unable to return for a few days but on telling the landlord this he then became abusive and very rude. I made him aware that i hadn't even charged him for the call out or the work however he continued to be rude. I would suggest tradesman stay clear of this Landlord!!!!!

Potential Re-wiring of two rooms Electrical
We had a couple of rooms in which the plug sockets were not working and the previous owner had run some cabling around and attached block plug sockets to the wall as a 'quick fix'. Alex was very quick to come around and give us an idea of what the problem could be with a recommendation to look into it further. After looking in to it further the cost of the fix was lower than we had first expected and he did an amazing job in re-wiring both the rooms to the original sockets. The very next day we hired him to install some outdoor lighting with a sensor which again was done so well - not a single wire in sight (craftily hidden through some exsisting wood work just below the guttering). All the time professional and a genuinely good guy.... Even threw in a free light fitting for us that we couldn't do ourselves.
Would recommend to anyone. Alex - Cheers.

Reid Electrics Ltd's reply:
I completed the job (install bathroom fan and fix bathroom light) in June this year and requested feedback from Verity but she didn't reply.The next i hear is 6 months later i have neutral feedback? The reason she gave was because she couldn't get hold of me for another and additional job however she was very happy with the first job. Feedback should be used on this site for work completed and agreed by the client and tradesman, it's not a portal to give neutral feedback just because you can't get hold of someone.

He arrived on time, carried out the work exactly as I requested and in a timely manner, cleaned up afterwards and stuck to his quote. What more could you ask for?

Bathroom fan extractor exchange Electrical
Alex was able to check on my bathroom fan extractor on the day of my phone call to see what the issue was and advise on the course of action. Instead of offering to replace the extractor fan right away he suggested that it might just need cleaning. In the end it was a loose screw which Alex identified immediately and mend it with no charge! His common sense saved me purchasing a new fan. Most definitely I will keep his phone number handy should I need it in the future and would recommend his services to friends.

He helped to propose and procure the appropriate replacement parts and scheduled a date to come back and do the work. Alex arrived promptly and completed the work during a morning. He did a great job and we are very happy with the quality of the parts and the installation. The work was completed for the estimate given and I paid on-line following receipt of the invoice which was also very convenient. In addition to being reliable and doing a quality job, Alex is very personable and makes you feel comfortable and at ease. I would recommend him highly and hope to be able to work with him again.

Recessed Lighting In Two Bedrooms Electrical
Initial contact and work carried out was good, however, Alex never came back to finish the job (leaving a wire hanging out of the bedroom ceiling and quotes for additional work we discussed). In hindsight I realise I shouldn't have paid him immediately and only after the job was finished but I guess I will learn from this in the future. Plus I didn't expect such behaviour based on comments and ratings left on the website from previous clients I have to say I use this website a lot and it is the first time I have experienced this type of unprofessionalism! I have emailed, text and phoned Alex several times and have had no response in over a month now and there is absolutely no excuse for this! I didn't want to ever have to leave such feedback (hence the reason I left it so long) but I was left with no choice! VERY DISAPPOINTED!!

Reid Electrics Ltd's reply:
All the work was completed well as discussed and the client was very happy. The job spec changed on the day but i was happy to accomodate accordingly. The client had not supplied a fitting for the centre light at the time but i said i would create a feed now which was insulated and safe, then return to add this light at no extra charge when time permitted.He also asked for some additional work which i said i would fit in when i have time.I have replied to all his e-mails and reminded him when time permits i will return for the extra work.Not sure why also he would have considered not paying me when i completed all the work agreed?I had no idea that i would have received such negative feedback for a job that was in fact completed well.

Spotlight change Electrical
Alex has very flexible working hours and can be easily contacted by phone or email. But I would not suggest his service if you'd like to source electrical parts yourself.
I found the price of the electrical parts (LED lights in particular) quite high. So I decided to source the lights myself. This however, entailed the need for Alex to come 3 times to have them work properly:
- 1 - to fit the components (in line with quote)
- 2 - to change the dimmer switch - as the lights flicked - this attempt was unsuccessful (and not charged for)
- 3 to change the dimmer switch to another type suggested by the supplier I used for sourcing the lights (50£ labour + parts)
The quote received was accurate, but it did not considered the additional 50£ labour which was charged the 3rd time around to solve the problem. While rightly or wrongly, i assumed the labour for the job was included in the quote and if additional problems arose, they would not cost extra labour. I was told that would be the case only for parts supplied by Alex and not sourced by me.
nicoletta_90 - 29th Nov, 2012 Neutral feedback
Reid Electrics Ltd's reply:
My cost of parts reflects the quality therefore i do not supply inferior parts.
Even though i am always happy to fit supplied parts my terms and conditions state clearly that i cannot guarantee those parts and if they do affect any other part of the installation or any other failiure of part of the installation occurs then a charge will be applied.
I made this very clear to Nicoletta in advance in writing and suggested there may be a compatability issue with the existing dimmer switch unless a compatible once was sourced in advance,if i would have to change this after the original visit then i would have to charge her to my supplied part and subsequent call out however i returned once free to charge to fit a spare switch i had on board.
Alex always came promptly and got on with the job sensibly and quickly. I would always go to him now for first quotation on a job.

Also I was worried about my hardwood floors and he said he'd make sure to properly protect them, which he did. He came on time did what he could do until he hit a snag that required my builders to do some work first then he came back and finished the job. Also he cleaned any mess at the end of each day he was at my flat. All my ceiling lights now work perfectly. As for the stair lights one has gone out, but I know that when I call him to fix it, it'll get done - I just haven't had the time to follow up.

I was very impressed with Alex's work. He had good ideas with regard to overall work, and was quite innovative in ensuring the final cabling was unobtrusive and well laid out. He carried out good quality work, ensuring he left the house tidy at the end of the job. He was also very accomodating, and made time to come again to my place afterwards to connect me to the grid at very late notice. I would not hesitate to recommend Alex, and will be using him for other electrical work going forward.

Alex came over to assess the job that I posted (within hours of posting it). He checked the rail, boiler, electrics etc and said that the job was not straight forward and would need a plumber. He was professional and knowledgeable and didn't charge me for his time despite being over 1/2 hour. Highly recommended.

Install immersion heater circuit Electrical
Alex arrived on time (actuall, early!) for both his initial visit, and to do the work. He obviously knows what he's doing, and did the work efficiently and competantly. with no time wasting.
Running the cable for my immersion heater proved more difficult than we had anticipated, and required making holes in both some plasterboard and a wooden stair tread. All nicely repaired afterwards and the carpet relaid well enough.
Alex spent over 5 hours doing this job, after quoting me for 4 hours work. He kept to the original price as agreed, although his mark-up on the parts seems rather a lot.
Despite running late, Alex seemed to do all the required safety tests on my RCB properly and was happy to explain to me what he was doing.
Alex failed however to vacuum up after the job, leaving fine dust where he had scraped paint off several pipes for earth bonding, and lots of carpet fluff where the carpet had been raised. I might have expected hme to have done this, but since he had already overrun his estimate I don't really mind.
Generally, Alex came across as a nice guy, a good communicator, honest, and competant. He also likes payment by bank transfer, rather than wanting cash, so no obvious fiddles going on with HMRC (unlike some tradesmen I've used in the past).

homeowner - 10th Jul, 2012 Positive feedback
I've dealt with a few electricians in Chiswick (and London more generally). Alex has impressed me the most. The work was exactly what I wanted done (outside light and sockets with well hidden cables; tidying cables in attic; and fixing faulty interior lights) and was quickly and cleanly completed. As I wasn't at home when the work was done, it was important to me that I could leave someone with my wife and daughter who was polite and trustworthy -- Alex was more than satisfactory in this regard. There was a minor unanticipated problem that emerged after Alex had left -- this is normally when it proves difficult to get in touch with your electrician. But Alex was immediately back and fixed things over the weekend. I'll try to use Alex exclusively for any electrical work in the future.

Exterior Lighting Electrical
Alex was asked to perform two tasks and only 1 was completed successfully. He failed to complete two of the tasks and we have been chasing for completion for two weeks and have not received a solution yet. I had to fix one of the items due to him not connecting the cables to the terminal on the back of a shaver socket. I would suggest if you hire this electrician then you test everything for a week before paying him.
jagangemi - 9th Jun, 2012 Negative feedback
Reid Electrics Ltd's reply:
The cables on the back of the shaver socket were working on completion of the job also the client was upset because he accidently paid me twice on a bank transfer and it took a few days for my bank to clear the funds back.I also offered to return to check the shaver socket but the client was not happy with the dates I offered.I also re-wired the clients boiler supply free of charge as it was conected inappropriately and not up to regulations.I finally re-wired the light they supplied free of charge as this was also not working as they wanted.
Great Job. Alex gave a free assessment of the problem which was great.
Then scheduled in the job quickly & finished exactly as agreed to a high standard. Very happy with the work, thank you.

Re-wiring 2 bedroom flat in London Electrical
We lost all lighting over Christmas and an emergency call-out Electrician not only couldn't fix the problem after working on it for 3 hours, he advised us that we'd need a complete re-wire. We posted the job of re-wire on My Builder and had Alex around to quote. Within moments of being in the flat, he identified what he suspected would be the cause and was happy to quote, even though the job was clearly less involved than a re-wire. Turned out, his suspicions were correct and he was able to replace a set of lights in the bathroom and fix the wiring, all within 3 hours, at a very competitive rate. He is very polite and patient in explaining the probblem. Highly recommend and will consider Alex for all future jobs.
