Best Electrical Contractors in Christchurch

No Comment Yet

Recently I decided that it was time for me to get my own office. For many years, I was building my business from home. The kids are slowly getting older and more independent so I made an executive decision to finally stop just thinking and start acting on creating my perfect workspace.

The idea of working from home was still very appealing to me, especially during school holidays and sick days, so my choice fell to a portable office. My business is online and the quality of work I do depends on the stability and speed of the internet as well as reliable access to electricity.

I did my research and contacted Selwyn Electrical Contractors, as they had great reviews on Google, Facebook, and their website.

Jarrad and his team helped me with the electrical wiring for the office, getting hard-line internet working, installing new sensor lights, and fixing some extra things that were broken around the house for a while.

When I invited them over, they managed to notice things and problems I didn’t see before and fixed them on the spot, which I was really grateful for as establishing a brand new workspace was already stressful enough and it saved me an extra headache later on.

One of the best parts of working with Jarrad was his attention to detail and great communication. When I had something working not quite right, I easily contacted him and he came back to fix it. The second visit was free of charge as well.

Overall, they’re fun, reliable, professional, good at their job, and reasonably priced. Will definitely get all my electrical work done with them from now on.

Besides general electrical works, Selwyn Electrical Contractors are official KNX Smart Home automation suppliers. I found it quite interesting and decided to ask Jarrad more about it.

He told me that the first step is to schedule an interview so they know exactly my needs and wants. This way they can tailor the smart home design just for me.

Everything gets linked to the mobile app and a smart panel in the house. I strongly consider it as the next renovation. I will rate this service once it’s done, too.

I review a lot of services around New Zealand, especially in Christchurch. You can read more of them here.
