Hi There!

Can someone recommend me a residential electrician who is good value, reliable, tidy and experienced?

I need a quote to put some lighting in our stairwell (In the stairs themselves).

<- don't ask me where I am - I haven't a clue: its a tech thing ;)
Housewife computerer: not particularly great at either. 
And don't take me too seriously.

I would highly recommend Williams Electrical (Gareth). Just had them do a complete rewire of the place and am very pleased with the result. Had some great solutions that I had not thought of and even some future proofing.

What sort of lighting are you putting in? LED stair strips?

Not strip lighting, just a LED pointing straight out every third step, attached to a sensor that operates 5pm to 7am so make getting down the stairs easier.

Altrenate step lighting always looks pretty average IMO, go for gold and light each step.

Well I am utterly disappointed honestly. I contacted him, he didn't call me back, I followed up, he apologized. We made a time for him to contact my wife sent all the details and he assured me he would contact us yesterday and come and do a quote. We need the work completed this week. Didn't contact us, no courtesy at all. 

It's left us with next to no chance of completing this project.

I can't understand why some trades people lack basic courtesy and professionalism. I couldn't imagine treating my customers like this!

That's a real bummer - people don't seem to get that is easy to build up a bad rep and hard as hell to fix it, and people will quickly complain about bad experiences but hardly ever about the good (unless it's exceptional).

Anyways - try Mr. Walker Electrical, I have used them about 3-4 times for various things and they have always been excellent.
