Good Electrician in Canberra

By BWK - 21 October 2014 11

Just wanted to give a shout out to my fellow rioters about a good electrician I found in Canberra.

After suffering  the usual no shows and late arrivals, I found Dan from DPC Electrical Ph 0416 453 872.  My house has been suffering from Electrical gremlins and Dan turned up  the next day and carried out the work quickly.  When I had issues again, I contacted Dan late on Saturday and he promptly sent his team back on Monday without another call out fee and fixed this problem.

After years of difficulties, I can’t recommend Dan or his team enough.

What’s Your opinion?

I second that! Got Steve in to connect my fountain pump to the mains, and did a great job – on time, texted when running 10 minutes late, left everything exactly as it was. And the price reasonable considering the effort required. Highly recommended.

Highly recommend Steve from Canberra’s Best Group!

I got there details from the agent the manages my property and they have been spectacular. Steve is very friendly and his prices were the best from all the other quotes I received from other electricians. Also being a larger company I had assurance they knew what they were doing.

They were on time and did the job perfectly. A++

The thing I also love is that you can book a consultation straight from their website and they actually turn up.

Their number is 0468 435 412 and webbsite

I recommend Dan from DPC Electrics. He was punctual and professional and had our job done in no time.

I also highly recommend John Mullach from Very genuine bloke, who is very to deal with. Fixed my problems the same day at my house and even hired him to do some work for my business. I am definitely going back to John for all of my future electrical works.

Hi BWK – I also highly recommend Dan and his team from DPC Electrical.

I accidentally nicked an extension cable that was connected to a hedge trimmer with said hedge trimmer yesterday, taking off some of the insulation and sending off a spark when the trimmer struck the wire. I later found out how fortunate I was that this incident didn’t take a turn for the much worse, but as it was, this shorted the power outlet the extension cable was plugged into, along with another outlet that was part of the same circuit.

Now, I know nothing about how the wiring in my house works to the point where I don’t even know where my fuse box is located (I really should remedy that). However after reading your post, BWK, and the comments by others on here supporting your recommendation, I contacted Dan from DPC.

This was close to midday. Dan told me he’d send one of his colleagues out to my house and would let me know the outcome. He said that it was likely that the accident triggered the relevant switch in the fuse box to turn off per safety mechanisms.

Later that day he rang back and confirmed that this was what had occurred. His colleague had put everything in order again and didn’t need to enter my house and I didn’t have to touch a thing – outlets were back to normal working condition. And amazingly, Dan didn’t charge me for this visit, unlike so many other tradies and their steep call-out fees. He simply asked that I leave a kind word for him on RiotACT, so here I am!

I hope this story convinces you to book Dan from DPC Electrical and deservedly and resultingly compensates him for his generosity to me!

A good electrician and a tax agent is hard to come back.

We recently had got CCTV installed at our property in Bonner by , Did a good job . One of the cameras had some connectivity issue after a week and the mob did pop over whilst they were in the area and sorted it out.

Would certainly recommend as well.

My 2 cents.

Caitlyn who operates Girl Power Electrical is awesome. She is fast, efficient, and offers no-nonsense friendly service. One of the few female electricians in Canberra, and makes a nice refreshing change.

I will recommend the guys at Woods Electrical.

Used them twice to install ceiling fans at different houses (just last week for the second place) and they were great both times – friendly, professional and helpful.

I purchased the wrong sort of light bulbs to put in the fans and rather than send me back to the shops, Al had some of the correct light bulbs in his truck that he swapped me for as he said he would no doubt be able to use them on another job. A tradie with customer service skills – that’s gold!

I’ve had good experiences with ESP Electrical.

We had a similar experience with Barry from Electrical Services Canberra on 0487 785 585, and I have also heard good thinks about Dan from DPC Electrical.

It’s nice to find reliable tradies that understand customer satisfaction is more important than churning out as many jobs they can in a day.

Hopefully other Rioters out there have had a similar experience with these sparkies?
