What our customers say about Horton Electrical

5 Star Review

We moved house and discovered we needed a new oven installed and the wiring put in to enable this. The previous oven was both broken and had been put on a supply which didn’t match the requirements of the appliance and was therefore causing no end of problems. Darren was able to identify the exact fault, advise us on what changes and additional wiring were needed and what we needed to look for in the new appliance. When Darren came to do the work, he found a better, even neater (albeit more difficult for him) way of running the necessary cabling. We’re now completely confident in our electrics and can enjoy the new house

knowing everything has been fixed. Thank you!!

5 Star Review

We were in a bit of a situation having been quoted a very large amount to address some issues relating to an electrical condition report (we're selling our house) that was carried out by another party. Darren came round to check on things after a quick call, quoted us a very reasonable price and also addressed a couple of issues on the spot. Further work was carried out in timely and efficient manner to a high standard. We couldn't have been happier with the service that Darren provided. I'll definitely be recommending Darren to anyone that mentions anything about needing an electrician.

Have used Horton electrical for a few years now and it's good to get someone you can stick with and rely upon.

I was a damsel in distress late at night with no electricity, but Horton Electrics came out late at night and got me a limited supply working and then returned during the day to complete a very difficult problem. Would definitely use Horton Electrics again.

5 Star Review

Darren answered my message within 10 minutes and was around the house within 10 minutes. Luck of where he was and when he was available but got the impression that was how he works - responsive and available when possible. He was able to locate the cause of the issue and solve it straight away.

5 Star Review

Darren arrived exactly on time and just got on with the job in hand, every thing that was done by him was what we asked for - new wiring in garage and electrical sockets, installed new outside lighting and sockets and lights in shed.

5 Star Review

I found Darren at Horton Electrical though a web search. As soon as I had contact with Darren I felt assured, he gave me a summary of how the Landlord EIRC tests would carried out. I knew there would be a lot of work required due to the age of the property. Darren carried the initial EIRC check and detailed with work to rectified. We booked a date and Darren was on time and was always reliable, it was easy to discuss any unexpected situations and that arose. Darren was friendly, tidy and diligent, I would highly recommend Horton Electrical and I will be using them for any future work.

Darren has done several jobs for us over the last few years so when one of the lights failed he was the person to call. He arrived to give us a quote with the fitting he recommended to show us . It all sounded very reasonable so a date was arranged for fitting. Darren turned up on time and did the job, he’s very tidy too. The lights look great and we’re very pleased. Darren even offered to adjust the bathroom fan so it didn't run on for so long, a great bonus! I have no hesitation at all in recommending Horton Electrical.

5 Star Review

 Darren came almost half an hour earlier than agreed and got on with the job. He is very tidy, courteous, experienced and competent. We are particularly pleased with the installation of the exterior light as there is no cable visible on the outside brick and the switch inside is very neatly fitted near the ceiling corner of the porch – again no cable visible. He took the time to make sure the job is well done. The price is reasonable and he issued the certificate (via e-mail) that evening. He will be our go to electrician and we would recommend Darren Horton to anyone who needs electrical works done. Highly recommended!

5 Star Review

Darren quickly replied to my initial contact, clearly stating the cost. He was punctual in his arrival and immediately set about identifying the cause of the problem. No head scratching or stringing out of time, instant problem identification and swiftly addressed the problem, minimising the cost. Polite and courteous throughout. A genuine professional who I will keep on speed-dial should issues arise in the future.

5 Star Review

Darren was recommended by a neighbour. I'd had an EICR done by another contractor and didn't feel comfortable with their quote. Darren stepped in, went through the report in detail, and visited the property before accepting the job. During that visit, he identified some issues that the other guy had missed, and made some other useful and balanced comments. He worked efficiently and tidily (it was a long day's work), and visited me on his way home to go through the job. I feel confident that this is a good job well done, and will ask him to quote for work on another property as well.

5 Star Review

Darren of Horton Electrical installed lighting and wired up heater to our new summer house. He was professional, neat and efficient and we are thrilled with the results. This lead to further work installing outside garage light and some improvements within the house. I would higher recommend his services and we wouldn't hesitate to use him again should the need arise.

5 Star Review

Darren is extremely knowledgeable and hardworking. He connected the electricity from the garage to the new summer house. All done very quietly and efficiently. Darren even identified an electrical bonding problem with a recent gas installation which we were unaware of and provided us with sufficient information to be able to get this corrected by the installers. Excellent job and no hesitation from us on recommending Horton Electrical, we will be using them for all future electrical work.

5 Star Review

For many years we have been struggling to put on a light in an alcove due to the poor positioning of the switch, being vertically challenged and increasing age. Darren came on time, but didn't just lower the switch down the wall, he asked our requirements and then made suggestions to its positioning - even though the job we chose needed extra work but not extra cost. As a result we can now reach the switch easily and it is well hidden on the alcove wall.

5 Star Review

Yet again Darren has been a star! We called him on Sunday night as our sockets had tripped and we were unable to reset them. It meant that we also had no heating as well. Darren came out 30 minutes after we called him on a Sunday night. He rectified the problem swiftly and at a very reasonable price. Thank you

5 Star Review

Existing security lights failed and in need of urgent replacement. Horton Electrical came with exact replacements and fitted them on the same day we called. Excellent job fully tested and very reasonably priced. Would highly recommend this company.

We can recommend Darren of Horton Electrical highly.  We needed electricity in an outbuilding.  He came up with a very clever way of managing the installation with little disruption.  Every step of the way the work to be done was discussed in full.  He is on time, diligent in his work, and is extremely tidy.  We were very impressed with a problem we had with a corner wall that need to be repaired.  He quickly came up with a solution that saved us a great deal of money.

S Ianson, Poole

 

We found Horton Electrical  via Nextdoor as others had given excellent reviews on the service. Well I am so pleased that I can now confirm that these reviews were right as Darren did a number of jobs for us including replacing faulty lights and connections, replacing our kitchen, dining room and front room lights and installing a security light to name but a few of the jobs he carried out for us. He even replaced our house number which wasn’t an electrical job, so I have no hesitation in recommending and will definitely be using for any future work we may need. He was reliable and honest, no job was too small and we had a very good indication of the costs up front. Hope this helps for anyone looking for a reliable and excellent electrician.

Mr & Mrs  Holdridge

Just had Darren from Horton Electrical round and I can't recommend him high enough.  He saved Christmas for us!  Called him last night as oven blew up, he came this morning Christmas Eve!  Cooker had died completely!  We managed to buy another oven and Darren came back to fit it in, even had to adjust the gap for the oven to fit into.  He did a brilliant job, and such a nice man to deal with.  He is your man to get any electrical work done.  Brilliant.  Mrs L Shand, Poole

We have used Darren and have recommended him to our friends.  He has always done a great job and sorted out some horrendous historical electrics in the house.
