Reputations are not built overnight
In Referenceline's view, this track record is more important than the ratings. Don't be impressed by a few old reviews which may not be representative.  Look for firms with a commitment to asking for feedback - good or bad - from their customers.  We recommend that you look for a track record of ratings and reviews in at least 9 of the last 12 months and that you should not be too concerned about an isolated negative review.  Ask the firm for their side of the story.
 


 
Good Practice
Businesses have a legal responsibility to treat you fairly, but it's often hard to know what questions to ask or what standards to expect.  They are the experts and you should be able to rely on them to help you make decisions.  These questions explain the commitments that this business has made to follow a code of practice and they will help you understand what you have a right to expect.

 
Charges: 96%
Before starting work, did the firm explain the charges including labour, materials, callout & VAT (as appropriate)?
 
Timing: 99%
Before starting work, did the firm explain when the work was expected to start and finish?
 
Payment: 91%
Before starting work, did the firm explain how to pay (e.g. cash, cheque, etc.)?
 
Reliable: 100%
During the work, did the firm keep their promises, explaining and agreeing any changes about the work, costs or timing where necessary?
 
Invoice: 98%
On completion, did the firm give you an invoice showing the cost of materials, labour and VAT?
 
Guarantee: 90%
On completion, did the firm give you a guarantee for a specified amount of time, or usage (where applicable)?
You can see how many customers have said "Yes" in answer to each question, but please don't expect 100% in every case.  Nobody's perfect and some customers may not be completely sure about the answer.  It's more important that you understand these questions and discuss them with the business so that you both agree what good service means for you.  A responsible business will be happy to explain the details to you and it's always better to clarify these points upfront to avoid misunderstandings later on.

Full house rewire including provision of additional wiring for smart lighting, cat 6 network cabling, additional external lights plus deck lighting.
 
Cost: £5439
 

"Matt returned my initial call promptly and arranged a visit to review the required work.
The details of the job were explained clearly and Matt made some helpful suggestions and also offered prices for alternative fittings for me to select from.
Matt and Ash worked well and were considerate of the needs of my family as we were still living in the house during the rewire. At the end of each day the site was left clean and safe.
They were punctual and explained each day what they would be doing and also at the end of the day, what they needed us to do in preparation for the following days work.
We are grateful for the quality job completed by MCT Electrical and would have no hesitation in recommending them or requesting further work in the future."

Replace existing alarm system with wireless system including new:- - internal control panel; - external bell boxes; - internal motion detectors; - door contacts. Follow-up full system set up and walk test.
 
Cost: £673
 

"Matt had previously visited site and provided suggestions as to the type of work that could be undertaken (including cheaper options). A detailed estimate of the cost of the work we requested was forwarded by email within 24 hours of this visit. The quote was accepted and arrangements were made for the the work to be carried out.

Matt and Ashley arrived promptly and worked in an efficient and professional manner. They managed the work in a sensible fashion and Matt's explanation of how the installed system worked was straight-forward and jargon free.

I know that I have only given a 6 for price but that is as a customer seeking the best value possible (I did try!!). That would not prevent me from using their services again, if required, and also unhesitatingly recommending this company to others."

   Business Reply:

The customer was provided with a range of options and the cost differences were explained at the time of the site visit. The customer ultimately made the decision as to which system and specification they wanted well knowing the cost implications.
We always endeavor to price our work as keenly as possible. The final invoice was the same as the written estimate both of which included VAT.
As a vat registered company we are obliged to charge vat on our invoices.

Fitted additional ceiling pendant in spare bedroom plus channeled in and fitted shaver socket in bathroom.
 
Cost: £181
 

"Matt was friendly and helpful on the phone, and arrived when he said he wold to look at the job. When we wanted to add something else to the job and contacted him by phone, he was pleased to hear from us and happy to add the job in. As it wasn't urgent, we agreed he would fit us in around another larger job, but that it would be done within the next 2-3 weeks. He contacted us to ask if he could come 2 days later, and he and a colleague arrived, were very friendly and polite, did the job really very quickly and efficiently, with only a small amount of mess left behind - but channelling into the wall does tend to produce a lot of rubble. We're really pleased with the end result - the channelled in shaver socket looks superb and the plastering was great. This is the second time we've used Matt and we'd happily use him again or recommend him."

Variety of small electrical jobs - replacing plug fascias and switches and a adding a new plug socket in a terrace house.

"Adding the plug to the party wall was tricky due to soft brickwork but the end result was very good. Switches and new fascias are tidy and the finish looks good. Work was carried out with a minimum of fuss. Polite staff; turned up on time and cleared up afterwards. Good price. Very happy."

"We chose MCT Electrical (East Anglia) Ltd based on their customer feedback through this forum and can mirror all the positive remarks. A fantastic professional approach throughout - from the initial appointment for the quote, to agreement for four days work, to turning up exactly at the time and days agreed, to working their way through each room in a methodical manner and cleaning up everyday. We will be asking them back to fit the electrics to our summerhouse as soon as it has been built."

Replacing cloakroom fan. Connecting new electric cooker

"Mr Taylor was recommended by my friend and neighbour who speaks highly of Mr Taylor's work.
He has previously installed DuCasa electric heating in my home and he did all the electrics in my kitchen.
He tests all his installations and all his work is to a very high standard.
He is a well-presented, well-mannered and personable man whom I feel confident to invite into my home."
