Some of the Work We Carry Out

We carry out work from rewires to socket changes see below for some examples we carry out on a day to day basis:

Also, with every call out that we attend we offer free visual electrical check. This is mainly to let the agent or landlord know if they have the minimum requirements in the property. For example you would be shocked at how many properties we go to that still don’t have wired smoke alarms.
