messageHighly recommended electrician (Gary Vu)

Got Garyís details off this forum (07872 178044), recommended by many, just wanted to add our recommendation too.

Issue with one light fitting tripped the whole set and needed replacing. He asked for a few pictures of issues over Whatsapp and then visited that evening 7-8pm. Identified the faults, fixed them and explained as he went along.

Very fair price and didnít appear to be extra for out of hours. Also happy to answer any questions I had about other work in the house.

Highly recommended. Will be our go-to electrician. I imagine he is very busy though!

I second this recommendation. A true gentleman, knowledgeable and available at short notice.

A third reccomendation for Gary. Efficient, reliable and reasonable rates.

Adding another recommendation for Gary. When I contacted him, he was away, but he asked for photos of the switches causing the issue described and said what he thought the problem was likely to be, providing a quote.

Showed up at the time stated the following week and *very* efficiently sorted the issues. Tried to save me a bit of money by checking whether one issue with a dimmer switch was down to the lightbulb I was using.

Very professional, friendly and good rates. Also, Son of the Year award, came by with his lovely mum, who needs a little looking after, so she relaxed on the sofa while Gary went about his work.

I will definitely be asking Gary to come around again for any other work we need done.

Another recommendation for Gary. Rapidly diagnosed and fixed a tripped switch on the fuse board that wouldn't return to the "on" position. Also replaced an outdoor socket and a light switch and showed us how to use our underfloor heating!

Lovely guy, friendly service, great price. Totally deserves all the recommendations on here

Have used Gary for years, for the simple (replacing kitchen lights) to the tricky (working out what the rubbish builders had done to the electrics and sorting it out so I could get my completion certificate). Never fails.

Haven't needed to ask him for help for a while, but have previously used Gary and definitely recommend!

Gary repaired our faulty bathroom light fitting today and we add to the list of recommendations - he was excellent at communicating before his visit and sorted everything out speedily and at a good price - high recommend!

I just wanted to add to my prior review above.

Since Gary fixed the issues in our flat that I mentioned, we've had him working on a much bigger project doing a lot of work to a house we are renovating. This has involved putting in a lot of new sockets, switches, ethernet cabling everywhere, new wiring for a new kitchen, etc. It's been a huge job and as ever, there are plenty of issues you run into with a big project, not least as we've been project managing ourselves with independent tradespeople.

Gary has been reliable throughout, always willing to work cooperatively (and proactively) with other trades, and even when things have gone wrong (through my doing / lack of experience) Gary has taken a positive, 'don't worry, we'll fix it approach'. I greatly appreciate his flexibility in managing issues as they arise and being willing to fit bits of work in when it would otherwise hold someone else up.

More recently, I find it very highly commendable that Gary actively takes measures to keep himself, his family and those around him safe. He wears a face mask, uses disposable gloves and respects social distancing.

We have used Gary in the pass and we going to contact him again to replace a bathroom extractor fan which is linked to the light- but lock down came about. More worried about him getting supplies - so will wait a while before contacting him again. We open the bathroom window instead for a while.
