Repair of a florescent light

$252 for 11 minutes of work! I got a quote for a repair to a light that came off its mount. $250 as it will take an hour. Sounds reasonable, 11 minutes, so are you really going to charge that for 11 minutes? Yes. Ok, paid in full but will never use them again.

I am glad that you have not complaints with the quality of our work and customer service, we visited your business to give you a free, upfront quote, booked your appointment early in the morning to avoid interruptions on your business operations, two electricians fixed the electrical hazard you had on a high ceiling in a commercial property.

We try to keep our pricing as reasonable and competitive as we can for our customers in today's market. We appreciate and value your feedback.

Ceiling fan installation

Octavio and his team completed the installation in a timely and professional manner including organizing and working around the required inspections to complete the job quickly! I would definitely use them again.

GFCI kitchen receptacle

I'd been having various issues with the electricity in my apt unit and wanted an unbiased inspection to know if it was to code and safe. Octavio arrived on time, was very polite, and kindly answered all my many questions. He determined an outlet with prior problems had not been repaired to code in the kitchen and replaced it with a quality GFCI receptacle. He even used special booties when entering my unit, which shows that WireChief is respectful of its customers and pays attention to details. I'm very happy with the service and relieved to finally have some peace of mind.

Electrical contractor

I first called Wire Chief when my contractor's electrician quoted a job ~ through the roof. Octavio gave me a reasonable quote and had excellent customer service. He did the job quoted and did such an excellent job that I have used him repeatedly over 2 years at my personal home and at our income properties. He makes time when I need him and is always professional, on time and accountable.

Convector baseboard heaters installed in my apartment.

Convector baseboard heaters were installed in my apartment (after my apartment was flooded). Figured 25 years of the old-style baseboard heaters was enough. Octavio and team were very professional throughout; installation was on the date and time as agreed to; installation was perfect.

Would highly recommend to anyone.

New lights throughout the house

I was very unhappy with the old track-lighting in our house and Octavio did a walk-through to suggest possible alternatives. Once we had a plan, he removed the tracks and did all the re-wiring necessary to hang some great new lights. I am extremely happy with the result, and with WireChief's service. Octavio was always on time and courteous; he let me know ahead of time what was going to happen; and when he encountered obstacles he discussed them with me and offered solutions. I would recommend WireChief to anyone.

major relocation of many electrical outlets, replacing dated fans in bathrooms and laurdrey rooms, adding new outlets, installing lighting fixtures

Octavio has worked for me in the past and I have always been impressed with his knowledge, ability to trouble-shoot, professionalism and flexibility. He had to work around other trades and ever-changing timelines. He always kept me in the loop and explained things in Laymen's terms so i could make informed choices. He was patient with me and his crew and admired by other tradesfolk who met him and saw his work.

ceiling electrical junction box installed

I actually found WireChief on HomeStars. Took a chance on them for a small job.
Octavio was easy to interact with over the phone and email. He arrived promptly and did a precise and clean job. I would readily use him again.
