Bret - did a great job for what could have been a problematic issue. Small project to connect an external home office to mains power. Bret provided a quote within a day of initial consultation, turned up on-time and completed the project within a day (ahead of expectation). No cost over-run and the price was competitive. Would definitely use Bret again and highly recommend to others.

Brett phoned to arrange to come and scope the jobs and then phoned as promised to give me a quote. He arranged to come to do the job a few says later, turned up completed the job without any problems. He was vey pleasant and explained what he was doing. All in all I would strongly recommend him without reservation and if I have other electrical work in the house in future I will be contacting him. The standard of work was excellent. the cost was reasonable .

I used Brett for electrical inspection and after a very good comprehensive report agreed a quote from him to remedy defects in our wiring. He and Fraser did an excellent job refusing to cut corners although tracking wiring problems was a hunt the thimble exercise. They are well mannered an friendly and left house spic and span. I appreciated the quality of the electrical replacement light fittings they supplied. For further work getting our new home set up the way we wish I will be contacting them shortly

Great allround service, responded quickly, did the job required for a reasonable cost. Although extra investigation was required on the wiring for safety they asked at every step of the way if it was ok to continue. Although this meant the price was slightly higher than quoted for the original job I am glad it was done right and the extra cost was minimal considering the additional time they were here. Lovely friendly guys.

There was a quick response from Gillies Electrical to my job advert on Trusted Traders and he phoned, called to see the job and agreed a date to come and do the work. He checked before coming to confirm and arrived on time and completed the job to our satisfaction at the agreed price. Very happy.

I would like to know if he qualified

    Hi Margaret, Your electrician should have an ID card with their qualifications on it and they should be able to produce any other certificates of qualifications upon request. You should also find out if your electrician is registered with a governing body, we are members of NICEIC and you can search for us on their website to confirm this. If you suspect your electrician of not having the relevant qualifications or not being a member of a governing body for electricians please don not risk using them. Kind regards Bret Gillies Gillies Electrical

One of your trades people has just visited and wants to be paid before he gives me his invoice. I've never paid a bill without an invoice. Is this usual?

    Hi John, I feel like you've aimed this question at Rated People as a company that employs all the tradespeople here. I can't answer you as a representative of Rated People but as an independent contractor and tradesman I can. It depends on the job, the agreed price and the agreed terms of the quote. Personally when I quote a job, I won't expect payment until the job has been completed satisfactorily. However when I quote for a job over a set amount I will ask for a deposit to secure a date then depending how long the job is likely to take we may take staged payments. This however will all be communicated clearly and agreed before proceeding. If this is the case, your tradesman should be able to give you a receipt or an updated invoice to reflect your payments to date. Kind regards Bret Gillies Gilllies Electrical
