Elwin Leung from Vaughan
22 reviews Vaughan, ON

Back in April 2013, I used Hotwire for multiple items (main floor pot lights, timers on exhaust bathroom vents, external light fixture installation and kitchen pendant light installation) including adding a whole home surge protection on a 200 amp electrical box.

The surge protection service was about $715 before HST. Everything was done well.

In Summer 2017, there were some concerns that another licensed electrician had with the Surge Protector (while we are finishing our basement) and Hotwire was quick to help after I contacted them by sending a photo with the instructions highlighted from the surge protector's manufacturer [see picture]. As well as having Oris (Hotwire's Master Electrician) being available for a conference call with me, my basement general contractor and the licensed electrician that my GC was using that had the concerns.

I appreciated how even after 4 years, Hotwire was willing to stand by their work and support their customer.

I have previous reviews of Hotwire on Homestars for you to read as well.

I contacted Hotwire to install a very delicate chandelier with lots of glass pieces. I wanted to ensure that I hired a company who would be able to do install this without damaging the piece.

The electrician was great and he communicated with me every step of the way. The office staff is very friendly and even gave me a call to let me know that the electrician would arrive within 30 minutes.

I will use hotwire again!

I've been working Hot-wire for quite some time also has my family . I've always been happy with their service and how fast they get the things done . Very punctual , clean , respectful and easy to deal with . I would recommend hot wire as Hanna and Oris have a great set of guys and are a great team and get things done on shedule . It's hard to find reliable people but I didn't have any issues at all . Always remember "you get what you pay for" . Quality , integrity and great materials

Sync I.T Solutions in Vaughan
1 review Vaughan, ON

We have been trying out different electrical companies for many of our automation jobs, to work side by side with but have not really had great experiences. We worked with Hotwire on our first project over the past few months and I can not believe the professionalism from this company, they always are available and ready to help you or your customers with any questions you have, not just the management but the staff as well they are all very knowledgeable in their trade. I think that is what is missing in the electrical field the “love of what you do” and with this company you can feel the love of the trade and that’s how we feel about our trade (I.T/Automation). Long story short they were great!!!! highly recommended and we will definitely be using them on our next job!!!!

Multiple projects completed with Hotwire over several years. Always on schedule, always on budget, changes are always communicated and approved prior, and on the rare occasion where service or follow ups are required afterwards they are always managed efficiently. A very professional contractor with qualified and skilled employees.

I used Hotwire to install a generator and landscape lighting at home and I they where a pleasure to deal with. I will never use another electrical company again they where professional, knowledgeable, on time and most importantly got the job done right the first time. In my opinion they are the best electrical contractor out there. There admin staff was very helpful and easy to deal with. I recommend them to all my friends and family. I now have the nicest backyard in the neighbourhood thanks Hotwire.
