I viewed Rated People.com on the Sunday evening submitting details of the work which needed doing. Olaf made contact on Monday morning, we discussed the details of the work. It was arranged he would carry out the work on Wednesday arriving at 11.00. He arrived on time and carried out the task in a professional manner. Very pleasing to have the necessary working again. Another aspect he offered advice on possible updates, explaining the cost this would incur was appreciated. Yes I would use Urban Electrics again

Olaf was a very efficient tradeseman, he came on time, did exactly as was requested and extra work for us all at a realistic price. A very nice gentleman who I would have no hesitation in having again or recommending to others.

Some firms didn't get back to me presumably as it was a small job so pleased to get this done so we can get an IS system up and running.

I endorse the previous rating.
I went on the site at lunch time on Sunday. Olaf rang me that afternoon, he turned up the following morning at 8.30 as arranged to replace my broken trip switch. He guessed the part might be £40/50 and rang me from the suppliers to say he could get a very similar part for £26 (inc vat). He only charged for his time on site plus a few minutes to get the new switch.
I was very pleased with his prompt response because my outdoor freezer ran from this switch.
I have kept his card in a very safe place.
However I did find the site and the process itself a bit cumbersome. For instance I had to copy and paste a web adress from an email to a browser??
But get over that and all round a good experiance

Olaf has just finished rewiring pretty much my entire house. He clearly knows his stuff and, unlike other tradespeople I have employed in the past he kept me completely informed every step of the way. When I had to change the deadlines for completing the job he worked absolutely tirelessly to get it done, often late into the night. He always showed up on time and never let me down with any excuses whatsoever. He has an excellent work ethic and was a delight to have around the house when I was in, always polite and respectful of the disruption that this type of work always causes.
I have noticed that many five star ratings are given on this site but Olaf from Urban Electrics actually deserves this rating! I would definitely hire Olaf again for any electrical work and would suggest that if you want a skilled, reliable, honest, polite tradesman who is also competitive in pricing you should do the same.
Thank you Olaf! My wife and I could not be happier that we chose to hire you!
