SATISFACTION +++

We are in the process of turning our house into a duplex, and tried the Shock Doctor for the first time, to meet our electrical needs. the experience has been worth sharing with anyone else needing professional electrical work.
Our electrician, Jonathon, was a pleasure to meet and he is a confident and talented young man. It was obvious from the start, that he knew what he was talking about. He was efficient, and didn't waste a minute. He was quick to clean up as each task was completed. Our questions were answered completely and honestly, and we will definitely use this company again. The Shock Doctors Club is a welcome perk, that saved us over a thousand dollars. Finding a local company like this one is a welcome find, and we highly recommend them.

Fixed a wiring issue

I called the Shock Doctors a few weeks ago, when I plugged in a grounded power bar into an outlet in the basement. My power bar has a light to indicate if the ground is functioning correctly, and it didn't light up. Turns out whoever wired it had reversed the polarity of the wiring, which is a potentially dangerous setup.
So I called them in, and they were friendly, professional, got the job done quickly, and to top it all off, the Electrician was very nice to my 3 year old (which if you know 3 year olds, it's a great thing to have people be friendly to them).
I've already referred them to a friend who had asked about recommendations for electricians -- that's how satisfied I am with the quality of the work and the level of customer service.
Thanks!

So much electricial work!

We've used the shock doctors for nearly three years now for all our electrical needs, but I'll review our first experience with them! We purchased a mid-70s house in Innisfil that needed a LOT of electrical work, including a ton of aluminum wiring pig-tailing. Chad spent a week at our house replacing outlets and fixtures, getting everything up to code, and did so with a smile on his face and occasionally a cat on his shoulder. We've used them multiple times since and have never had a bad experience. Highly, highly recommended.

Outdoor lighting, outdoor plugs and new 200 amp panel

Scott is amazing. From the inspection of the work needing to be done to final install the work he did is all 100% top notch.
Such a professional young man, his workmanship is incredible and overall by far the best electrician we have ever hired. I highly recommend Shock Doctors and this is the only company for our electrician needs we will ever call moving forward!

Installation of new lighting in our home office

Scott arrived at 8:00 a.m. (as quoted) and right away started to cover up the furniture in our office and also the clothing in our closet where the entrance to our attic was. He very quickly took down our old fluorescent lighting and proceeded to install the four pot lights we had requested.
The work was done very efficiently and was finished by 9:30 a.m. Scott ensured that everything was cleaned up and left in good condition.
I have already started to recommend Shock Doctors to my friends should they need any electrical work done.

Ceiling Fan Installation

We had a couple tricky ceiling fan installations that needed an expert touch so we hired the Shock Doctors. They showed up on time (actually showed up early, which was nice) and provided a detailed quote before the work was done. The job was completed quickly and professionally by a courteous individual and I couldn't be happier. They even sent us a hand written thank you note along with some candy a week later. I would definitely recommend this company to anyone who needs work done.
