"Prompt, efficient service with work carried out to a high standard and all done on schedule. Good to have a company like this to deal with the electrical side of a rented property. No qualms on recommending."

Jim Milne

"I had a really good experience with ideal electrical solutions. They were very quick to attend the flat to carry out PAT testing and an EICR. They liaised politely with my tenant and took the hassle of arranging access away from me. For this piece of work the price was right and the service was great. Thank you."

Anna Crampin
