Hi, I'm looking for a local electrician to repair/replace one of our wall socket which exploded in the weekend. We also would like to get a quote to install new lights in the dining area and also a quote to install TV on the wall including wiring etc. 
I'm not after a big expensive company, would like a recommendation for a local bloke so I can go back to him in the future when I need and support local community.
Cheers

Also try Beyond Electrical, local lads and company based in West Auckland

www.beyondelectrical.co.nz

Have used them on a few jobs for me and they have always delivered great service and advice.



Sorry just wanted to add
Disclosure: One the owners is a good friend of mine but that doesn't alter my recommendation

Electricians and trades people are so precious lately. In the last 3 month I contacted 5 different people, all of which promised either to call back or come and none did. Initially I kept calling back and re-making appointments, only to get yet another frustration when they do not show up, but with the last few I simply give up after the very first broken promise. It seems that they have that great choice of jobs to take that customer satisfaction is simply not a priority.

 

I'm happy to find this thread, as I might try these two recommended companies, may be I have a better luck with them, than with people before.

Ryan from Allworkz Electrical is local, and does an excellent job at a fair price. He can be a bit hard to get hold of though.

So this one (Tom Wood) promised to come but never showed up or called or emailed. Your mileage may vary.

We've had good experiences with http://dnaelectrical.co.nz/ at both home (full rewire, then lighting, then minor tidy up/ethernet installation) and work (data/power/lighting for an office of ≈10 people).  Nice guys to deal with, and good communication.
