"My wife and I were delighted by the prompt service, careful workmanship and reasonable cost. In fact, we were so pleased by our lighting job, we immediately booked two additional projects we'd been putting off -- for security lighting and a new wall oven installation. Try them and you'll never need (or want) another sparky. A true find."

"Des at Mt Albert Electrical did a large job rewiring an old villa which our business was converting for use as media production office - so the electrical needs were a little complex. He delivered on the quote offered, was punctual and thorough in the work he did, listened and communicated well, and was pro-active in offering suggestions to meet our needs. He was also friendly and a pleasure to deal work with. I'd happily work with him again, and would't hesitate to recommend him to anyone needing electrical work done. " – Ross

"We woke one morning to no hot water. Des was amazingly quick to assess and fix the situation. His workmanship is excellent. He is tidy, quiet and an absolute pleasure to have in the home. I would recommend him in a heart beat. "

"I used Mt. Albert Electrical to replace an element in my oven which had completely broken in two places. This was quite dangerous obviously so we needed to have it fixed asap so we could use the oven again. I called Derek on the Saturday and he was able to come around first thing the following day. He also disabled an annoying clock on the oven which i never used and didn't charge for this. Derek was pleasant and quick and i would highly recommend. Thank you. "

"The previous electrician said nothing more could be done. Des took the time to research the issue then came in when he said he would and fixed the problem. We have had no issues since so I am very pleased with the outcome. I would definitely use Des at Mt Albert Electrical again."

"We needed an electrician to fit out a new kitchen with additional power points, new circuits, basically a whole new electrical system. Des was suggested to me by a friend. He returned my call quickly and was very professional. His work was excellent and reasonably priced. He sourced the colour and style fittings I was after and left me with an official document regarding the work done for council and insurance. To top it off Des is also a nice guy who was friendly and easy to deal with. Over all I was extremely happy with Mt Albert electrical and would happily recommend them. " – Scott

"Des replied to my call about a light problem we had and completed the job quickly would recommend him to others Heather"

“Des has been a very reliable contractor and I would highly recommend using his services, I never had reason to call him back to a property due to a job not being completed properly, he readily communicated when required. Every so often I would get a complimentary email from a tenant who was very happy with his work and his manner.  That doesn't happen often.”   “The client Des went to visit today to check the wiring, said Des was amazing!  So thorough and pleasant and he even cleaned up after. She called especially to praise him.” - Heather MacBride, Property Manager, Crockers Property Management Ltd, Licensed (REAA 2008)

"Des has been my electrician for the last 7 years, doing electrical work at both the properties that I manage and my personal home. I highly recommend Des for the following reasons: he is punctual, a good communicator with myself and my tenants, work completed well and no call backs, clean and tidy. Des also did electrical work for other property managers in our office who would have the same respect for him as I do. Such a great guy and great work ethic!" - Tiri Raumati-Greenhalgh .
