  • John is without doubt my go to person

    I’m embarrassed it’s taken me this long to write a review for John. John is true to his mission statement, it’s so refreshing to deal with someone who will call/text you back, arrive on time, listens to you, completes the job to timescales and to quote. I’ve needed electrical works a few times; John is without doubt my go to person and will be in contact with him again soon.
    To date John has installed bedroom wall lights, outside lights, a new consumer unit, many new socket points, moved the cooker, garage/study sockets, bedroom and kitchen down lights, Nest Smoke Alarms and an outside socket. All completed as requested, and as mentioned above to time and quoted cost.
    Thanks John

  • Knowledgeable,reliable ,reasonable and personable .

    I’d read so many glowing recommendations on our local Facebook page but never had occasion to meet John, until recently. I would absolutely recommend him as I found him to be knowledgeable, reliable, reasonable and personable. Despite it being late on a Friday evening (when I’m sure John wanted to get home) the work was carried out to a high standard and not only did he leave it clean

  • His patience and professionalism were outstanding

    Excellent job!!

    Thank you John for doing such a fantastic job at our house. It wasn’t plain sailing as it was supposed to be an easy job of fitting two outside sockets but he uncovered a load of problems with the wiring in our house & had to correct everything before he fitted the sockets. His patience & professionalism were outstanding & we would highly recommend him to anyone. Thanks again John.

  • John is professional , polite and a gentleman

    John came to my house today to fit various lights, both inside and out, replace and fit faulty smoke alarms and to rewire kitchen applicances. John also fixed a couple of other electrical nuiances for us whilst he was here too. No job is too big or too small. John is professional, polite and gentleman. I had a couple of quotes for the work that I needed doing, and John’s prices are highly competitive. I will not hesitate to use him again and will recommend to friends and family.

  • Great guy , great workmanship and great community spirit

    The Notley Green Community Centre has had need of Johns services twice in the last week. The first was a scheduled appointment, to hide the wiring to 12 high level lights. John, as always, arrived at the agreed time and then worked through to 2am to complete the work in one visit, keeping any disruption to our busy hirer schedule to a minimum.
    The second visit was to fit our new defibrillator machine which arrived unexpectedly. Not wanting to delay the possible use of the machine, we called upon John and he came out on a snowy Saturday morning to install it, free of charge.
    John is our ‘go to guy’ for anything electrical and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone needing electrical work or advise. Great guy, great workmanship and great community spirit, thank you John 😊

  • Trustworthy ,professional , caring and considerate

    We recently moved into an older house and wanted the lighting and sockets updating. John did a fantastic job. Being an older house it threw up a lot of problems and he managed to fix and overcome each one. John worked around other contractors that were working on the property at the same time and at times it was very cosy! Thoroughly recommend John as a trustworthy, professional, caring and considerate contractor, who went above and beyond to make sure the work was carried out to a very high standard.

  • Entirely honest and transparent

    We are so pleased to have found John. Not only does he know what he is doing, he is entirely honest and transparent. John undertook two minor jobs that some other electrician’s wouldn’t consider. He turned up when he said he would, and has since fitted a wireless heating programmer, fixed a three way socket, and we hope to have new outside lights fitted in the future. John advised us to what he was doing throughout.
    Very impressed.

    WHAT A FIND!
    John is brilliant!
    This is the first time we’ve used him and he will now be the only electrician for us in the future.
    He sorted the installation of a new oven, did fab work on new outside lights for the front and rear of our house (which he supplied himself – excellent quality!), and also fitted a new hall light (which I’d bought ages ago and the fittings turned out to be non-standard, but John fixed it!).
    John didn’t just do as he said, but went on to give various options and ideas.
    We’ve always been anxious about having tradesmen in the house and with John this problem has disappeared. He’s like having a friend in the house – totally trustworthy and with a brilliant sense of humour. I can’t recommend him highly enough!

  • TOP CLASS JOB

    He’s done it again! Booked for a another electrical job… but how many tradesmen do you know who will turn up, all smiley and raring to go… at 7.30am?! Top class job… so trusted to crack on with the job and leave us 100% satisfied… we left him with a house key, went to work and he locked up when he’d finished. It’s so easy to see why JC is Braintree and Notley’s preferred electrician!

  • A TRUSTY TRADESMAN

    A TRUSTY TRADESMAN!! We asked John to visit my elderly mother who had faulty ceiling light. John came to my mothers rescue immediately. It turned out to be a minor fault which John fixed quickly and to his credit refused to take any payment. It is important to trust a tradesman and this episode has proved John to be extremely trustworthy! We will look to John for any future electrical work needed and most definitely recommend John to anyone.

  • Provided the best written quote that I have ever seen

    Reviews: What a fantastic guy John is… no wonder he’s Braintree and Great Notley’s preferred choice for electrician! John came out late one evening, to provide a quote during our new bathroom installation and provided the best written quote I’ve ever seen, within 24-hours. When John visited, he’d secured our trust and we left him to it whilst we went to work! He really listens patiently to your needs and gives excellent advice on securing the very best result for the job. The quality of John’s work is as extremely high as his sense of humour and honesty. His work was completed quickly, tidily, professionally and very competitively priced. I’m sorry we didn’t get John in from the outset… but business card now secured to our pin-board, we will never hesitate to call upon John for the next job… and recommend him to new customers with absolutely no reservations. Thanks JC!

  • A Tradesman to Trust

    Hi, I just had to write a review on our experience with John. He saw my little girl (3) and said hello and started a conversation with her, which most tradesman usually just ignore the kiddies so that in my book is a BIG thumbs up. He turned up on time. The job wasn’t a straight forward one and he went through everything thoroughly to find the answer to our weird lack of power. He was very polite and cleared up after himself. Generally just a honest, nice, reasonably priced, hardworking tradesman who we have already booked up again. Thank you John and Poppy is happy with her room working again 😎 We would definitely recommend him to our friends

  • My house was something of an Electrical Challenge

     

    My house was something of an electrical challenge for John – and for ‘challenge’ you can probably read ‘deathtrap’. He had quite a few obstacles to overcome, but John was determined to resolve them all, even though it took longer than expected. End result is a great job for a very fair price and a much safer house! I never had any qualms about leaving John working in the house while I went to work and would recommend him to anyone. He also explained everything he’d done and turned up exactly when he said he would.

  • Money Saving Bright Ideas!

    Do you have Spotlights in your home. If so the chances are they will be 50 watt halogen lamps using 50 watts of power every time you switch them on. The average cost per year to run 1 single 50 watt lamp for 3 hours a day is £5.76.

    Now there is a new lamp out which is powered by LED. These lamps can be very easy to convert to and last around 10 years. The average cost to run one of these lamps is £0.096p per year. A saving of £5.66.

    Let’s say you have 10 spotlights in the house – that’s a saving of £56.60 per year, which is well over £500 after 10 years. That’s money better off in your pocket than in the electricity company’s!

    Convert now and start saving £££s straight away. There’s no mess or fuss and can be done with every type of light in your house.

  • Electrics and Government Regulations

    Getting an MOT on your home electrics is always a good idea.  However unless your home is less than 9 years old or has been rewired in the last 5 years you will soon have to update your electric system in line with imminent new government regulations. The new RCD consumer units minimise the chance of electrical faults starting a fire and the government is changing the law to ensure that all homes have a new style unit fitted.  In the meantime you should be aware that an old style fusebox could invalidate your home insurance for fire claims.

    Getting your electrics tested and updated is not yet a legal requirement and you can save money by getting the work done now before it becomes compulsory. Having the unit changed is a quick, clean no fuss job which must be carried out by a Part P registered and qualified electrician to be valid.

    For a free quote and very competitive price, contact  JC Electricals  today.
