Electrical outlet.

I originally had Rand Electric give me a quote on rewiring my garage, was quite happy with their quote, and was ready to move on with the project . But other things got in the way and I had to postpone the project. I had one small thing that needed attention and Rand Electric did the job regardless. Richard came to my home and had it all fixed up with in a hour. I will use them for any electrical jobs in the future .

Thank you Andy.

Family Room Reno

A major renovation to my family room was planned which included a new ceiling with pot lights, new built-in cabinets with lighting and the tv moved over the gas fireplace. Also, troubleshooting & repair of an outlet in basement giving shocks.
The Electrician who came to do the work was very knowledgeable and was able to provide some different design and pricing options based on my wants and budget. The work ended up being completed under budget and right on schedule.
Rand Electric's service was excellent. They demonstrated their attention to customer service in all aspects of the project.
I have used them in the past and will definitely continue our business relationship for future projects. I would certainly recommend them for any electrical work.

New outlets, breakers, and undisclosed charges

I had great service from start to finish. However I would not recommend Rand Electric despite their friendly, timely, and extremely clean & tidy work strictly based on how pricing and billing was handled. I was originally quoted a 4 - 6 hour job. The electrician got everything done within 5 hours including clean-up. I was impressed . . . except for all of the undisclosed charges including permits and material costs that should have been presented before starting any of work. I'm not trying to evade code or permits and appreciate quality materials but what should have been a $600 job (initially discussed) turned into $1,000! Rand's work is excellent and they're experts but they're doing a disservice to their customers by not sharing all of the billing details and permit costs upfront so customers have an idea what they can afford before the work is complete. If the $1,000 charge inc. permits costs and materials, a 5 star review would have been in order.

Hello and thank you for your feedback. We’re pleased that you found our Electrician to be “friendly, timely and extremely clean and tidy”, and that you were really pleased with the “expert” work we do. However, we would like to apologise for the miscommunication on our part, that our Electrician didn’t provide a price for the materials and permit fees required to carry out the work you needed. We have now made it a company policy, which we discussed at our staff meeting this week with all of our Electricians, to discuss material and permit requirements as well, when asked about how long the work will take, which is the standard question we’re asked. I have left 2 phone messages for you and I hope we can connect to try and rectify this unpleasant experience and leave you feeling better about the situation. All of our services come with a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee and we stand by that.

Thank you for your business and I hope to hear from you.

Sincerely,

Andy Mittelstaedt

Helped with some electrical trouble

Moved into our house last summer. Had a few annoying issues like no power in room if an appliance would run or outlet would be used. Their electrician was professional, knowledgeable and prompt. I had a tight schedule and a possible phantom issue but was all addressed in one visit.
Great team!

Get a firm Estimate for even small jobs

The short version is the electrician was friendly, gave good info about methods for future jobs and the work he did was fine, BUT the work was much more invasive than planned and took far longer than I'd budgeted for. There was no indication that this would be the case in advance and no mention of the permit fee (which would not have been required with my preferred, less invasive solution).

What I'd originally wanted was a quote for a larger job, and to have a small job done to at least make the minimum charge worthwhile. This job was not critical for me (relocating a light switch fro behind a door) and I wouldn't have had it completed (or at least not in the way done) if the price had been more clear up front.

While I believe the electrician was trying to minimize the damage to the wall, I would have elected to do it in the fastest way possible regardless of damage. As it was I ended up paying a lot more than planned for a job I could have done 80% given the eventual method used with a bit better communication.
