Testimonials on our electrical work in Wellington - Lower Hutt - Porirua
CDR Electrical have many satisified customers, both long-standing and newer.
Wendy - Grenada Village: Fabulous prompt service from CDR Electrical with the recent installation of two new light fittings in our kitchen. Couldn't have asked for better. Reasonable rates and quality workmanship. Its great that they're local too. I would have no hesitation in using CDR Electrical again.
Sarah - Lower Hutt: The service we received from Mark at CDR was excellent. He turned up on time, offered advice as to the best options for rewiring the house, then returned when he said he would to undertake the work. Would highly recommend
Stephen - Wadestown: Prompt service. Reliable advice about hardware choices: no silly upselling. Due care not to leave a mess of off-cuts and falling insulation material. Definitely qualify for this site!
Merrin - Newlands: I would thoroughly recommend using this business. They were a delight to work with from both the Officer Aministrator who phoned me to the Electrician who fixed my issue. Totally honest about the work that was required.
Ian - Newlands: Great service. Communication was 100% and their flexibility in dealing with the problem was excellent. Will certainly use you guys again.
John - Thorndon: CDR Electrical is the only Sparkie you'll ever need. Fantastic communication was equalled by fantastic service and follow through to ensure customer satisfaction. Couldn't ask for more!
Donald - Porirua: I can highly recommend CDR Electrical. For a relatively small job (under $1000) their estimate was $500 lower than the other quote I had. Steven arrived on time, completed it in the 4 hours estimated, working carefully and thoroughly. I felt very confident about what I saw and as my brother is an electrician and had advised me what to ask for. Communications from Mark were timely, friendly and helpful.
Sheree - Grenada Village: Very professional engagement and regular communication on the status of the job. They were quick to assist and due to illnesses and unforeseen leave in the team, resources were limited, but they provided a prompt workaround with great communication and delivered a great service and outcome. A pleasure to deal with and definitely use this team again.
Anna - Berhampore: CDR Electrical were great to deal with. They came around to investigate the problem (battery, dust, age of sensors etc) before recommending a full alarm replacement. This gave me confidence they were offering the right solution for me rather than the best solution for them. They were quick to respond and to set up an appt time. The entire process from the initial phone call to full installation was about two weeks. I was impressed by them and would recommend CDR Electrical. Their office was great to deal with and worked with me regarding the due date for payment.
Graham: I was referred to CDR Electrical by my builder. I needed work carried out on my tenanted property in Tawa while I live in Auckland. It took one phone call to arrange the job and put the electrician in contact with my tenant to fine tune it. Things proceeded vay smoothly from there. Im happy with the result and so is my tenant.
Justin - Paparangi: Thanks CDR for a great job. We were moving our kitchen in a double storied home so access to change wiring was limited without removing walls and ceilings completely. CDR approached it in a business like manner, came up with great solutions that minimised the holes in walls, and worked in with our changing timelines (due to other contractors). Friendly and helpful service. Always worked with us and made it easy. Highly recommend.
Maria - Newlands: The best! Great service and the lighting in our hallway's simply awesome! Looking for professionals...they are right here in Newlands!
Jo - Wadestown: Choose CDR Electrical after reading reviews on the no cowboys site and very happy that I did. Had no hot water and rang Bernie to see if they could fit me in. Bernie was in a meeting but promised to call back promptly which she did and organised for someone to come around the following day. Very happy with the work done and grateful that they were able to fit me despite being very busy. Will certainly use CDR Electrical again.
Andrew - Paparangi: Have now had CDR do a couple of jobs and have been really impressed by their communication, reliability and quality of work.
Jane - Houghton Bay: Great job & fabulous communication. Glad they found the fault & fixed it up. Will definitely use them again. Many thanks!
Bernie - Newlands: Friendly, punctual, phoned when he was on his way, offered cheapest solutions, and the bill at the end didn't even hurt. It was a fraction of what i budgeted.
Jann and Emmanuel - Porirua: Very easy to deal with, they were very knowledgeable and helpful. The electrician who arrived was right on time, very friendly and got the work done quickly and tidily.
Elvira - Churton Park: Good work done by Steven. He called to let me know how far he'd be, was very flexible in doing another job that wasn't planned on the same day and gave good advice on type of light fittings to buy. Bernie was great too. Would use CDR again and recommend them to others.
Lynne - Paparangi: CDR are professional and totally understand the meaning of service. They get the job done as quickly as possible and you can trust them to do it properly and at a fair price. I always enjoy interacting with their friendly and caring team.
Heather - Ohariu Valley: This is the second time I have used CDR Electrical. On both occasions Steve was the electrician. I was impressed with his courtesy, efficiency, and the result of his work. In addition, Bernie who made all the arrangements was very helpful. I highly recommend CDR, and will happily employ them again next time I need an electrician.
Justin - Crofton Downs: We had asked CDR to come out to look into whether we need to upgrade our switchboard, as per advise of another electrician. They came out and determined it could be solved much more simply by adding another fuse and separating some wires. I was really impressed with the honesty of this company, as they could have easily gotten us to do a more expensive upgrade. We will continue using them for all of our future electrical needs. Highly recommended.
Chris - Paparangi: We had CDR Electrical in to sort out our stove top as we were running two speed cooking - on or off. To add complication we were in the process of preparing our house to rent before moving overseas. They turned up when they said they would and the job was completed promptly without complaints - even with the gross nature of the back of the stove. A quick fix and a very reasonable bill, we wouldn't hesitate in recommending CDR Electrical. When we were sent the invoice, with all we had going on with our move both my partner and I thought each other had paid. However a friendly reminder was sent and a personalised response after we explained why we hadn't paid. Even some well wishes with our new adventure.
John - Johnsonville: I read very good things on No Cowboys about CDR and my experience backs this up. Bernie was a delight to work with, and gave us a number of options as we had quite a few things we wanted looking at. I felt I could trust CDR from the beginning. Steve came around two days in June and was polite and friendly, and was happy to offer his advice when it came to our questions. His workmanship was very good. I plan on using CDR in the future.
Melissa- Tawa: Really happy with all the work CDR have done at our house - still lots more to do and will continue to use CDR for that. Nice to get the same electrician back each time who is familiar with the ongoing project that is our house! Fast, tidy work, well priced.
Saviour - Newlands: I have been wanting to have some work done on my home for sometime. I finally called CDR Electrical, my local electrician, to book the job. From my first point of contact, the team here were honest and realistic about the time frame the job was going to be executed. I was in no hurry, so it gave me time to get items organised. The booking was quickly confirmed. Steve touched base with me in the morning, to let me know an emergeny had popped up. He still met me on site at the agreed time so I could go through what I needed done. He made sure he fully understood what I was after before I left the site. I felt completely at ease leaving him on site with a house key and confident he knew what I needed. Steve called me when he completed the job, and he reassured me that if anything was out of sorts to call him back. Needless to say, I did not need to call him back. When I got home, I was so happy with the finished results. Steve left all the spaces as clean as they were before he carried out the work. It was nice to get those jobs done and now enjoy the little things in life
Trevor - Wadestown: Needed some new circuits added to the house for a new water cylinder and cooktop. Fantastic communication throughout the process, from quoting to arranging times to conduct work at the property. Bernie did a fantastic job of fitting us in ASAP so we were not without a cooker for too long. Excellent quality of work at the house. Overall a pleasure to deal with and a great final result. Thanks!
Jan - Crofton Downs: Prompt and very professional work. Job was done quickly and no mess was left. Bernie was polite, answered all my questions and explained things clearly to me. No surprises on the invoice :-)
Jo - Khandallah: First time have used CDR Electrical, and would definitely recommend to others. From the first contact with Bernie in the office - very efficient. Unfortunately my job turned out to be bigger than expected due to the wiring in my house, but I was kept informed all the way through of any issues and probable costs of the job. The electrician was professional, polite, calm and knowledgeable. He worked hard and got the job done as soon as he could. The only small issue was he was late arriving, and I hadn't had a phone call to advise the new arrival time. But I would highly recommend.
Scott - Newlands: We've used CDR Electrical for a number of jobs over almost 20 years. The service has been consistently good, reliable, and well-priced. This current job was no different. Recommended.
Barbara - Lyall Bay: Mark has provided electrical services over a number of years for a substantial renovation. We could not recommend him highly enough for the quality of his work and his communication skills. He is a pleasure to work with.
Dianne - Newlands: We had great service from these guys, they fixed our oven with a missing part, and got it ready for us to use for Christmas, in fact they came back especially even after letting us know the next day Steve was on leave. Outstanding service and really, truly appreciated.
Merren - Paparangi: I had to change the initial appointment time due to work commitments. They were great and fitted into my schedule. The gentleman arrived on time and we had lots of little jobs. He attended to the tasks in a very professional manner. He addressed our concerns and we felt the issues had been resolved in the best manner. So easy and stress free.
Kim - Broadmeadows: I was very happy with the work provided by CDR Electrical. I had my appointment time confirmed with Bernie at the office and it was within the week, first appointment. Steve was at the property right on 9am as scheduled and did the work efficiently and was exactly as I requested. Great job! Cheers.
Sharon - Khandallah: We had a potentially dangerous situation with our heat pump unit bursting into flames after a mains fault, which sent all our appliances into "beeping" mode and was a rather distressing situation not knowing what the problem was. However Mark arrived promptly, was calm and reassuring and quickly worked out the problem and went about correcting the situation! No appliances were harmed in the ordeal! Bravo CDR Electrical!
Nick - Te Aro: We have a narrow dark alley way in our rental property, the sensor lights we had kept getting problems with the rain and having to get replaced. I asked Brian to come up with a solution to provide light for the alley way and Brian found some great LED lights with separate sensors each end and fully rewired these. The tenants love the new lights and am really happy with his work. Good to engage an electrician with many years of experience who will give you advise on the best products and what other people are installing and what's happening in the market place.
The CDR Electrical team is highly dependable and trustworthy with itemized billing so you know what you are paying for. Brian is extremely knowledgeable so can provide input early on with any project you are embarking on.
Arthur - Churton Park: I was very pleased with the electrical work that I requested to be done at our home. CDR Electrical gave us a time and date that they would be here and they phoned to say that the electrician was on the way right on the time given to me. We had to have an outside light fitting replaced and the electrician actually had one on board his van so he did not have to go away and get another one for us. I would highly recommend their services as being very professional.
Paul - Johnsonville: Brian was thorough, and explained the necessary work fully. He also took measures to limit the likelihood of the problem recurring. I am very happy with the job done.
Ally - Island Bay: Fantastic. Highly skilled, always on time, and quick to come if needed urgently. Very professional company and excellent advice and expert installation. These guys go the extra mile, highly recommended local company.
Lucy - Wadestown: Really trustworthy and experienced electricians. Organised and efficient as well. And they also communicate really well about appointment times etc.
Stephen - Johnsonville: Awesome service - quick and simple to arrange, and the electrician arrived on time, talked me through the options for fixing our problem, and did a great job. Thank you!
Cathie - Woodridge: I really appreciated the quick service as it allowed me to get on with my interior decorating without any hold ups. The person who did the work was really obliging and helpful and made a really tidy job of patching up the access holes. Thanks so much, will definitely use CDR again.
Anne - Newlands: CDR have done electrical work for me on several occasions. They are always efficient, helpful and competitively priced. I would not hesitate to recommend them.
Hamish - Wainui: Mark was exceptionally thorough in tidying up our electrical problems that we had in our recently purchased 1960 house in Wainui. We asked CDR to wire up an outside hot water cylinder and install some power points, a heated towel rail ,a light/heat extractor unit in the bathroom, wire up a new stove and remove redundant wiring. While Mark was here he found some old existing rubber wiring and some other unsafe wiring in the fuse board which he then rectified. We would highly recommend Mark and CDR Electrical Ltd.
Alan - Aotea, Porirua: We have used your services many times over the years with satisfaction in the work carried out. This is why we came to you to carry out the current work required and it was well up to our expectations. The staff were friendly, courteous and efficient. We will have no hesitation on calling on you if further work is required.
Vivien - Pukerua Bay: Great service, fully provided with options, and pricing. Work carried out promptly.
Julie - Oman: I live in Oman and these guys were quick to reply by web based query and prompt and efficient with the resulting service in my Wellington apartment. Price was reasonable. Will call them next time I need work done. Very happy.
Dianne - Newlands: Fantastic service, easy and friendly and fast. Mark came in and installed a new heated towel rail, then came back to fit a timer, and fit a twin plug. He fixed up something else he found as he was finishing the job, so brilliant for us and really appreciated. Great communication, fast response, and all done in an odd time of year when everyone else is spending time on holiday. Really, thank you very much. We will be using you again.
Alan - Newlands: Requested inspection for job on Tuesday, asked to start Friday. Prewire done as requested on the Friday. I then had a bunch of work to complete which meant Mark had to wait for me. When completed my work, Mark's worker was back to complete the job as soon they could. Job done in a timely manner and well done.I'll use them again.
BS - Wilton: We have had all CDR's electricians do work for us over the past 5 years. They are very good electricians and great guys to deal with. The latest task was to install new LED lights in our kitchen ceiling. It's amazing what a difference this has made to the workspaces in our kitchen. We will get them back to retrofit our old 1990s downlights next year in other areas of our home.
Inge - Wilton: Many thanks for yet more reliable advice and assistance, this time with our bathroom heater and extraction fan. Ready advice and prompt timely service make CDR a great company to work with. I was informed immediately when an alteration to our scheduled arrangement was required.
Barbara - Johnsonville: We found Steve to be friendly and efficient. He carried out our work and thought outside the square to get the job done. Well done Steve.
Louise - Khandallah: I have been using CDR Electrical for my electrical work for a long time. I have always found them to be professional and they do a good job. What I particularly like is the timeliness of their response as it would be a concern for me not to have electrical concerns addressed as soon as possible. I would recommend CDR to my friends.
Robyn - Newlands: We have used CDR a couple of times and will use them again. Steve is great, he arrives when he says he will, does what is needed, happily answers questions and gives advice without being condescending.
Ian - Johnsonville: Great work, on site quick and job done efficiently (as always - we always use CDR for both domestic and rental properties).
Graham - Wellington: CDR recently advised us on the best SmartVent ventilation system to replace our old DVS ventilation system. From initial consultation to installation we were impressed by their knowledge. Easy to use controls, 2 additional ventilation outlets, tempering heater, we're very pleased with the end result. No more condensation problems for us. Very tidy job, thankyou Brian and Richard.
Lorraine - Mt Cook: As I am moving house I needed an electrician to repair a downlight asap. My call was attended within a couple of hours. Pleasant efficient young man - Richard, who fixed the problem with no trouble. Not a difficult job but one that needed doing fast.
Ivan - Newlands: Bernie who took my call was helpful and friendly and I could tell in her voice that she was willing to help me out as much as she could , she said she had to ring someone and get back to me in 5mins and sure enough she did , things like that make a difference.
David - Johnsonville: My wife and I are delighted with the work CDR Electrical did for us; on time, lots of attention to detail and quality, and were more than happy to do an additional piece of work for us right on the spot. Very reasonably priced, too, given the effort put in. Highly recommended.
Catherine - Johnsonville: Mark's boys installed our bathroom exhaust fan & bathroom heater. Mark was very accommodating when I had to change the installation date. His boys came on time to do the install. Very impressed with the work and would gladly use CDR Electrical again.
Mike - Newlands: Mark recently rewired and upgraded the electrics in our kitchen during a re-fit. Mark turned up when he said he would, did the work to a high standard and charged the amount he quoted. Fully recommend.
Tom - Newtown: Mark was amazing - first of all, he turned up bang on time and did a really thorough walk through of all the work required, fixing stuff along the way, and then provided a very competitive quote. When we changed our mind on some of the lighting installations, Mark went out of his way to pick up the lights for us. Then came the day the work was to be done and Mark was on time and right on budget. Great workmanship, tidied up after himself, and is generally an all round top bloke! Can't recommend CDR more highly!
Martin - Churton Park: I am an award winning Licensed Master Builder and my Building Company serves the whole Wellington area. We have been using CDR Electrical for all my electrical work for the past 10 years including new houses, large renovations, extensions, small bathrooms and the smallest of jobs. They are one of the biggest assets to my company and have provided a fantastic service to my customers and my company. Their quotations are well written and describe everything they are supplying and note all the other items that are not included so you get a realistic idea what service they are offering.
I was on a job removing structural walls yesterday in which my customer asked me if I knew a good electrician to move a lot of light switches and hotpoints. I contacted Brian and he had Richard on site the next day and completed the work in six hours which I though it would take him a very long day. It was a tough job which took a lot of patience. A very clean and tidy job left at the end.They also meet up with my customers to find out what they require and discuss their budgets and provide to me a quotation (which I pass on to my customers) that is more than favourable and competitive. Their service is second to none. There is no arrogance at all with their attitude in their approach to my customers or me. They just want to help people. My parents and family have used them time and again for their new work. I have worked with all their staff and Brian and Mark. I am more than happy to have them as part of my team and to recommend them to everyone. Great electricians, great pricing and fantastic work ethic.
Noel - Broadmeadows: I have found Brian to be a very reliable and straight forward man to deal with - no crap from him. His work ethic is to be admired. Jobs are done on the right day and very efficiently. I have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone wanting any sort of electrical job done.
Nicola - Johnsonville: This firm fitted in an urgent job at a very busy time and were extremely easy to deal with even though I had to organise the job from a different city.
Cherie - Khandallah: Prompt efficient service. Quotes were great and work carried out in a friendly efficient way. Any mess was cleaned up and times stated to start work were honoured. I am happy to recommend this company to anyone who requires a prompt reliable efficient service, we will use this company again for any further electrical work we require.
Theresa - Churton Park: Thank you for your prompt and efficient service. Steve was a really friendly and careful worker and I would not hesitate to recommend your company to my friends and family.
Sue - Khandallah: Installed a light and fan in our bathroom. Arrived at time arranged. Great service, very efficient, good advice, very reasonable cost. Would use them again for any electrical work in the future. Would not hesitate to recommend them to others.
Pamela - Johnsonville: I was very impressed with CDR Electrical. I was informed of what was happening, they came back when they said they would, all very professional, polite and friendly. I will definitely use them again and recommend them to my friends.
Janet - Breaker Bay: I have used CDR Electrical for several installation and repair jobs over the last 3 years and have found them to be completely professional in their work, prompt in their replies, turn up on time and are very friendly to deal with.
David - Karori: Absolutely top notch. Even the builders were highly complimentary of the work and professionalism. What these people said they were going to do they did with no fuss and the quality of the work is second to none. Have no hesitation to use them as I will be!
Nigel - Kelburn: Timely attendance and the job undertaken with no fuss and delivered with just plain good old fashioned courtesy, common sense and professionalism. Thank you. If you want a job done properly, every time, call the crew at CDR Electrical - we do.
Paul - Glenside: Came recommended by a friend. Tried them to fix faults in another house left by another company. CDR delivered with prompt service, good quality work and were polite to the tenant. Will use them for the next job.
Chris - Northland: CDR were very quick to reply to my request for work and a quote considering it was over the Xmas and New Years period. Really great to deal with. The job was done very well and recently, another quote for more work was provided and most definitely more than reasonable pricing. Very happy indeed, would highly recommend.
Jon - Thorndon: It was just a small job to do a pre-purchase Electrical survey but Mark was able to fit it in very quickly and deliver the written report within a couple of days. Excellent communication skills, efficient and professional.
Diana - Oriental Bay: This was a big job the rewiring of an old Victorian house that took most of last year on and off. We got a number of quotes and CDR came on the recommendation of my builder and, independently, of our former electrician. I found the quote competitive and the work really excellent. Mark Donaldson is very professional and great to work with. And a really nice person.
Andrew - Wilton: CDR gave a competitive quote for the job and carried it out on time and to a good standard. I will definitely use them again.
Graham - Wilton: We have had CDR do several jobs for us over the past couple of years. They are always prompt, courteous and leave the area tidy once the job is finished. They are very capable at offering different solutions to suit our needs and budget. Recommend you give CDR a try for your next household job.
Bronwyn - Northland: Mark was absolutely outstanding. As well as completing an exceptional job on time and as quoted, he was reliable, flexible, cleaned up, and is an all round great guy. He offered us top advice all the while being concious of our deadlines, budget and requirements (all of which having exceeded expectation). I highly recommend Mark at CDR and will be booking him again for my next round of renovations. Thanks again for the fabulous job!
Yvonne - Johnsonville: Another job well done. Appreciate that they turn up when they say they will and give an honest opinion on what needs doing.
Dennis - Newlands: These comments go back to the 1990's when we started using this firm for "minor jobs" around the house. Nice guys, fair pricing. Can't fault them at all.
Melanie - Wilton: Mark was excellent to deal with. He offered an excellent solution for our outdoor lighting, and allowed us to dig the trench to save costs. We had to wait for the work to commence due to the amount of work on, but are more than happy with the end results.
