Electricians typically issue the certificates straight after they’ve completed the electrical work.

Commercial Project

What our customers think

Placed an emergency call out with Hopkins Electrical as I had lost all power to my house. Chris turned up within 60 minutes of me placing the call and found that a rat had bitten through one of the cables. He made a temporary repair and then came back a couple of days later and replaced the fuse board and the cabling. Neat job, very professional and very reasonably priced.

Michael Underwood

Chris and his team talked us through the whole re wiring process and made sure we had enough sockets and switches in the right places before we started any work. They turned up on time and were very professional in their approach to out very large project. They were always easy to get hold of and would always offer good solutions to any problems we had with our build.

If like me the thought of having to find an electrician brings you out in a cold sweat then chill and call Hopkins Electrical. From start to finish they were professional and friendly. When they came and undertook the work I was so impressed with the transparency and integrity of their employee who talked me though everything. The work was done to a high standard and I have no problem giving them 5 stars. Great company, great service.
