I hired
Miami Electricians Provider Name Locked
to fix my kitchen circuits that were faulty and give me an estimate for an instant hot water heater and a generator. The office people always professional and very courteous. The same technician showed up each time friendly and knew what he was doing by all appearances, but extremely patronizing like he was always doing me a favor which I thought annoying. He came and fixed the kitchen circuits the first visit in Feb 2014. He re-wired the circuits and I haven’t had any problem. I asked him at that time if he could install a motion sensor floodlight outside about 10’ from the circuit panel. He did that too and all seemed well. They charged me $1700 for that job. The light alone was $297.00 and another $269 to install it. Yep, a $500 light 10’ from the power source. I thought the circuit re-wire was priced fair but the light was way over priced, oh well I made a stupid decision to get it. I paid for the Halogen light but the technician told me the bulbs were another $50 each, well I at least made one right decision not to pay another $100 for (2) halogen bulbs. He decided to give me to regular flood bulbs that he says came with the fixture since I wouldn’t pay the extra $100. I noticed from the documentation after the technician left that the light actually comes with halogen bulbs, so I figured out it was an attempt by the technician to make some money on the side. The bulbs should have come with the $297. fixture. Oh well this is Miami, right? I didn’t sweat it since I didn’t buy them and didn’t say anything to the company then, that was a mistake. The $500. Light never worked right. Sure it came on but you had to be no more than 5’ away for the sensor to make it function. I figured well I am going to have them come back and install an install water heater so at the same time I’ll have the technician check the light they install to see if he could get it working correctly. I called back in March to install the instant hot water heater, another $1500 for the work, the price is fair but not for what it does. The only thing it does is save space. No matter what they tell you It does NOT save any electricity over the traditional hot water heater and may be slightly more expensive to operate depending on temperature setting, it’s a 60amp circuit over the traditional heater normally a 30amp. Your electricity meter kicks in at warp speed when this thing comes on. It also needs to be replaced at about the same interval as the traditional water tanks, for the same reason, sediment that causes them to rust and get clogged up. Of coarse they will sell you a filter for an additional $80. that probably extends the life. He also said he adjusted the floodlight so that it should sense movement when it should. I also got a quote for a generator installation. The quote was for $5,800, installed. I looked at it and saw the generator they wanted to sell me for $3800. only costs about $2200 retail. I thought the $1600 markup on the generator alone was way too much profit and unfair, so I decided not to buy it from this company. That same night the floodlight still did not work. I was so upset that I spent that much money on a floodlight I just said, I was the one that made the mistake so I will live with it and I really didn’t want to see that technician again anyway for a $500 light with no good halogen bulbs…right? In August I decided to have some awnings installed on the side of my house. The awning guy said your floodlight is going to be in the way and the sensor won’t work once he installed the awnings. I told them it didn’t matter the light never worked anyway, go ahead and install the awnings. As the worker was installing the awnings I got upset again about that stupid $500 light and those expensive bulbs I never bought. I decided to call back

and have them lower the light about 12 inches under the awning and perhaps get it too work correctly. The same technician showed up, what bad luck…He explained that he could lower it and that the company’s prices went up and he would need to charge me $200. (197) For an hour of work, he hadn’t even yet given me a total price for other parts that he may need. I said the light never even worked and I thought that was outrageous, I would do it myself or have another company come out that could actually get a motion light to work. I almost at that point confronted him about the costs of the halogen bulbs that I think I should have received with the light and decided against that route. I was already angry, and my temper was growing

. I also told him that I would have to call another company anyway to check why the instant hot water heater circuit trips on occasion. It happened a couple times while home on weekends and the AC, pool, clothes dryer were running at the same time. I have a 200 amp box and have never been told that it could not handle the instant hot water heater . So I told the technician just to leave, I didn’t want anything from his company if they couldn’t get a $500 light to work and that I would call another company to fix both the light and the water heater. The technician kept saying or trying to get me agree that he had always been respectful, and it's the price my company is charging and that he deserved respect too. I told him that the only respect I cared about was a professional job completed by his company and this was not a personal matter. So over $3000 for work I paid this company and they couldn’t get a light to work and even moreover, MAKE IT RIGHT.

The workers were efficient and knew what they were doing. It took perhaps a little longer than I expected, and hence was a bit more expensive than we'd anticipated. But I don't think that was because they were delaying things.

Very professional and on time. worked until they could find the best solution to the problem, cleaned up after themselves. Price was a little steep, but was willing to pay for the quality of work.

The office staff and dispatcher were very attentive and professional. This work needed to be coordinated with a plumbing contractor and

was very accommodating. Team from

arrived on time. They were professional and friendly. Work was done as promised and job site was always clean and tidy. We live in a condo and

knew how to follow the building rules and guidelines. Job went so well that we requested the same team for additional work. We probably could have found lower pricing for the projects but the quality would not have been the same. We will definitely use

again.

Their response on the phone and the people who answer it are superb and the electricians who worked in my house on time, professional and did a wonderful job. So much so that they worked in my house again rewiring. They are coming to my house today to install a few light switches and help me with lighting in my studio.
Miami is a difficult place to get workmen to actually come to the house to give an estimate. Many are late, incompetent and quite frankly impolite making you wait forever and then not showing up.

professionals have always been on time and enormously responsive. That in itself deserves credit in this town! They are excellent and I highly recommend.

I believe you should get an approximate price from the vendors before making their services available to your customers. We are just ordinary
Miami Electricians Provider Name Locked
people and do not know how much these people charge. The first quote the electrician gave me was $596, less the $200 Angie's deal, but which included a service travel fee of $59. When I asked why I was being charged a service fee he crossed that off. This left an amount of $396. I told him that was too much. Anyway, the long and short of it is that he said $200 was for the microwave installation and the remainder would be for the light fixtures. He finally agreed to do all four fixtures, but said he was doing one for free. I did a bit of bartering and got the balance to $250, which is what I paid. My argument is that I didn't know I was expected to be paying out anything, which is why I believe we, your customers, should be made aware up front (when you offer these type of deals) of these potential charges and not be taken by surprise.

actually answered the phone when I called. He listened carefully as I explained the job in detail to him and we discussed the options. He didn't have ADD or an attitude. He gave me an in-line estimate to the others I had gotten and said he'd get back to me to schedule the work. The following Monday I got a call asking if the man could come over in a half hour. I was flustered and had planned some non-deadline work at home that day but quickly said, sure come over. I mean, who's going to turn down a tradesman who is ready to do the work!

I was still in my bathrobe and had to jump in the shower and mouthwash lest the workman catch me for bad hygiene. I threw on clothes and by the time I got to the gate to open it I heard an engine running outside. It had been barely 15 minutes since he called.

Kameronn was very professional, personable, knowledgeable, very helpful, listened really well and cooperated with me so we got the jobs done right. He was very careful, thorough and meticulous. Actually he was amazing. They didn't niclkle and dime me over the estimate. Based on this one experience, this is how all business people should be. Granted, it was a straightforward job with no serious complications, but they were truly "highly rated" unlike a " highly rated" tiler who developed an attitude and got testy as I asked him exactly what specific work needed to be done on the floor. It was like extracting a tooth from the guy. I mean, if the guy is going to get combative over the estimate, can you imagine when he going really gets tough?

When I called to schedule an appointment with the vendor, I was greeted in a kind and courteous manner. I received a callback the same day to gather information and schedule an appointment. The technician (

I found him to be neatly dressed, and he presented himself in a courteous and professional demeanor. The scope of work was discussed and

worked quickly, safely and efficiently while he performed his work duties. He placed protective coverings on the floor and affected appliances to catch debris and to keep the area clean. When the tasks were completed, he even hauled away the old equipment and packaging. I was pleased with the way in which the technician handled himself and completed the job in a timely manner. I would estimate the procedure took about one hour and fifteen minutes. A couple of days later I received several pieces of information via e-mail, that also contained an estimate on a potential future project I wanted to possibly do. On 08-04-2014 I received a follow up call from a

representative inquiring about my satisfaction with their performance, which was pleasingly surprising.

As a do-it-yourselfer, I knew when to call in the pros for this project. Angie's List gave the the right referral. They updated old, obsolete halogen sockets with new sockets to accommodate
