Company info

Bright Idea Electrical Services LTD prides itself on being big enough to cope but small enough to care. We always strive to offer our customers the most competitive quotations. 
We are proud to be based in Folkestone but are more than happy to travel further to accommodate our customer’s needs.

I Personally have been installing electrical systems for over 19 years having served a full City and Guilds apprenticeship followed by another 15 years installing, maintaining or repairing electrical installations.

We have kept the company deliberately small to provide a reliable good service and currently have three vans on the Road, carrying most parts for a same day repair. All Electricians will be wearing company uniform when visiting your premises. 

Our work ranges from large commercial Installations to small domestic installations. We are very happy to carry out the following (but not limited to):

  • Full House Re-Wires & Part Rewires
  • Heating Control Wiring
  • Fault Finding
  • Installations for building extensions.
  • Full LED Conversions
  • Electric Underfloor Heating
  • Fuse Box Replacements 
  • Kitchen and Bathroom electrics
  • Domestic, Commercial And Industrial Works all undertaken.
  • Landlord Periodic Testing
  • Commercial Electrical Testing
  • PAT Testing

We pride ourselves in offering a prompt, efficient service and are always conscious of our customer’s needs. We are also pleased to offer free estimates & fully guarantee all of our work.

We joined Checkatrade to be able to give our customers past, present and future an informed choice from our recommendations.

Please feel free to contact us to discuss your individual needs and requirements, we are always happy to help.
