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: 89%
Before starting work, did the firm explain the charges including labour, materials, callout & VAT (as appropriate)?
 
Timing: 89%
Before starting work, did the firm explain when the work was expected to start and finish?
 
Payment: 89%
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: 100%
On completion, did the firm give you an invoice showing the cost of materials, labour and VAT?
 
Guarantee: 100%
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.

Neil partially re-wired my house after I had become concerned about the safety of the electric circuits I had inherited.

"The whole experience was excellent Neil worked carefully, cleanly and considerately. Best of all he consulted me throughout and I was completely reassured from start to finish. On 3 occasions since Neil did the electrical work, I have sought his advice by telephone e.g. when a faulty kettle tripped a circuit, and he has been so helpful. I would recommend Neil unhesitatingly. Hazel Rose"

Complete wiring as part of total renovation of two bedroomed cottage. Neil designed and installed the whole system including fitting a new consumer unit, ring mains and lighting, smoke alarms, TV (including fitting the aerial) and internet/phone.

"Neil was by far and away the best tradesman we employed on our renovation project.
His work was carried out to an extremely high standard and he paid great attention to detail, checking and testing the system as work progressed.
Neil consulted with us about what was needed before the work started and took time and trouble designing what has turned out to be a very effective system. He was very good at explaining to us what options were available and making helpful suggestions about ideas we could incorporate.

Neil's professional approach to all aspects of the work meant that we never had any worries about the electrical installation."

Removal of the electrics from the old shed and made safe whilst the new shed was erected. Reinstate the electrics into the new shed together with supply and fitting of a new LED Batten light and an additional socket.

"Neil did an excellent job. All the work was completed to a very high standard within the agreed timescale, the latter being of great importance,as the said electrics supply a large Koi pond in the garden which cannot be left without power for long.
Neil worked very efficiently and the site was left clean and tidy. I couldn’t have asked for anything more !"

Hall lighting was tripping the electrics. Neil came out on a bank holiday Monday to make the system safe for me. He returned on the following Weds and spent a long time trying to find the fault. Once found the fault was repaired.

"Very professional, friendly, methodical, explained clearly what was wrong and showed me the problem."

Complete electrical overhaul of a 2 bedroom cottage which included the installation of a new consumer unit, extensive re-wiring, installation of new sockets, complete renovation of lighting system and installation of a comprehensive wired-in fire detection system.
 
Cost: £4000
 

"Apart from the fact that Neil is an extremely competent and highly professional electrician, with extensive experience and knowledge. Neil is extremely approachable and ensures that, you as the client, are up to speed and and included in everything he is doing. All work is carried out to the highest of standards, completed promptly within the time specified and at reasonable cost. Cannot recommend Neil highly enough."

Design and installation of a flexible, efficient and elegant lighting system for new Artists Studios, survey and revamp of existing electrics and heating systems.
 
Cost: £4500
 

"Neil spent days on a scaffolding tower, nothing was too much trouble, he always had a solution for every problem. Originally asked him to 'put some lights up', in fact he completely reviewed all the electrics in the Studios, revamped the whole heating system, created a completely new lighting system throughout. His advice and knowledge was invaluable. He came when he said he would, and completed the job within the very short time frame given.
When we called him after he had finished to say that we had no electricity (due to a previous electricians fault) he came out within the hour, and spent 2 days sorting the problem for us. Cannot recommend him enough."

Investigated fault in downstairs ring main which caused RCD to trip persistently. Traced to CH programmer unit - replaced. Also checked other plugs and switches in the circuit and remedied two wiring issues. Also replaced very old downlighter unit with modern LED version.
 
Cost: £185
 

"This work was the latest in a number of jobs undertaken for us by Neil Veitch. I have been delighted in his professionalism, his promptness and background knowledge. When the emergency arose with the ring main he was here within 30 mins and sorted it within another hour. He is my "go-to" electrician! Recommended!"

Repair and improvement of studio lighting

"Neil Veitch came to address the problem of my very inadequate studio lighting as a recommendation from a gallery owner, who had been most impressed with his work on the gallery premises. I was equally pleased with the vast improvement made by him in my studio. Very knowledgeable and efficient, very fair price."
