    A neat, efficient job, and good advice given. We would never be worried about any work Tom does. Thank you.

    10Verified Review

    This is the third time I have used Resistance Electrical and every time they have done an excellent job. Tom was really helpful with communication in the lead up and answering questions, and Edvin did the work to a high standard. Tom also dropped the agreed price as it was a quicker/easier job than expected - this isn't something that many tradesmen would do. It shows the integrity and service that they offer. Thanks again guys

    Tom and his team were courteous and professional, offering great advice and suggestions throughout the process. They fitted three plug sockets, fixed numerous wiring issues from the previous owners, ran a safety check and installed an ethernet line up from the dining room to the study. They cleaned as they went and were extremely accommodating to any requests we had, highly reccomended.
