Review of recommended electrician in Bretton, Peterborough

Review Date:
30th December 2020

Summary:

My heating, hot water, fridge, freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer had stopped working this morning. Having checked the fuse board I found one of the switches had tripped, but I could not get it to stay up.

I have sole care of my very elderly Mother so needed help to get the problem fixed.

I phoned Barry Didcott at Direct Electrical Ltd, and he was with me within the hour.

Comments:

Barry was very thorough, and eventually found the fault, then was able to get everything back up and running for me.

Thank you Barry for coming out to me so quickly and making sure that we had our heating back. I am so grateful, and will certainly keep your number to hand.

Summary:

Return power to ring main.

Comments:

Fantastic service from Barry today, the day before Christmas and our sockets tripped out, no heat or fridge. However Barry arrived quickly and got straight to work. The job turned out to be extremely complex but Barry wouldn't be beaten and had us up and running in a couple of hours.  We couldn't be more pleased! There is more work needed so we will be getting him back in the new year. A very pleasant man to deal with.

Summary:

Installed a new electric vent, removed redundant transformer & conduit, replaced unsafe double socket in rooms on 1st floor & completed a safety check on a bank of LED lights in the bathroom.

Comments:

Barry Didcott is, in my opinion a consumate proffessional, starting with the safety checks he made before looking at the actual jobs I wanted him to quote for. His prices were competitive. Proof of his qualifications & status as a member of the NECEIC were made available to me. He worked methodically, safely & tidily.

It is with a sense of relief that I found "Direct Electrical" to be trustworthy, skilled and a pleasure to do business with.

Summary:

Complete upgrade of burglar alarm system.

Comments:

From the initial inspection, Barry was able to advise on the options available to us, from straightforward like for like replacement, to full system expansion. Once we'd agreed on the work to be undertaken an appointment was scheduled for the work to be performed. Barry arrived on time and performed the upgrades to a very high standard. It was very easy dealing with Direct Electrical, we have felt very confident we're in safe hands throughout the entire process. Highly recommended.

Review of recommended electrician in Orton Wistow, Peterborough

Review Date:
23rd October 2020

Summary:

Replace the light on the rear corner by the back door with new flood lights c/w PIRs.

Comments:

We had one light on the corner of the back / side of the house which stopped working and we had been meaning to replace this with a PIR light for several months; we finally got round to contacting Barry recently and had the work booked in for yesterday afternoon.

Barry arrived on time and got straight onto the job in hand, working quietly and meticulously. Two new PIR's are now in place - one is activated if you exit the back door to the side of the house and the other when you turn the corner to the back of the house.

We tested them last night and both are working perfectly and provide the exact amount of brightness we required.

Thank you Barry, another perfect job carried out!

To fit 2 new mains operated smoke detectors.

Barry came on the same day I called him having been to the suppliers to purchase the units on his way here. 

He was extremely helpful and answered a few other questions I had about my house burglar alarm. 

I have used him before and would do so again if the need arose.

Summary:

All my downstairs lights had blown and the fuse box switch not working.

Barry arrived within a couple of hours and sorted out the problem - which turned out not to be a simple solution. He made sure all was safe and working properly. I would definitely recommend and will be using Barry again for some new light fittings and other lighting jobs.

Summary:

Problem with a house alarm system.

What a genuine guy, called Barry early morning as the alarm going off at my Mums place and no one could shut it off. He was there in 5 minutes or so, shut everything off and didn't even charge. 

Would highly recommend!
