The electrician was scheduled to arrive at my home at 8 a.m. to do the work. He arrived about 1:15 p.m. with no apology. I didn't hear from anyone until about 11 a.m. when someone from the office called to say he was on his way. He didn't arrive until 1:15 however.
The work was done well but the electrician was on the phone part of the time, which I doubt was related to this job. When paying by the hour, I don't expect workers to be on their phones.
In my initial call to inquire about the company, I was told the fees were $75 per hour and no travel charge if I was in the city. When the electrician came out to give me an estimate, he said it would probably take about 3 hours, maybe 4 if there was a problem. He said he would send me a "not to exceed" estimate but would do time and materials. I never received an estimate but we had agreed it would most likely take 3 hours at $75 per hour. Thus, my expectation was that the bill would be about $250 figuring $225 for labor and about $50 for materials.
The electrician was here for about 2 hours and 45 minutes (including his time on the phone)--definitely under three hours. When I got the bill, it was for $440--much more than expected. He did the work on June 3, 2014 and I received the invoice about a week later. I called the office immediately and told them the charge was higher than expected. The office person said she would look into it and get back to me.
When I didn't hear back from her in a couple weeks, I wrote them a letter On June 25 saying I wanted to pay them and wanted to work this out. She finally called me on
7, 2014 saying it would cost $369.25--still considerably higher than I was
to believe. When I asked how she arrived at this number, she said that they do charge for travel, that the materials were $44.25, and that the permit was $25.
They never told me there was a permit fee and that there was a travel charge. One of the reasons I chose them is because they said they did not have a travel charge. They never mentioned a need for a permit. I already had a permit for putting the inserts in and they didn't say another one was required--not sure it was required. Also, the electrician did not have the sticker with him to put on the electrical box and said he would bring it by. When he didn't bring it by June 23 when the inserts were installed, I called the office again and said I needed it for the inspector so they sent someone over with it.
The work got done but it was a pain in the neck to work with them. The overcharging, the not getting back to me, the lateness, and most of all the unwillingness to negotiate a mutually satisfactory solution are reasons not to use them.

Both

were very professional. Both did an excellent job in explaining what could and couldn't be done with the existing electrical capabilities and why. I would definitely hire
again.

The February 2014 ice storm brought down a pine tree, which in turn pulled down our overhead utility lines, which in turn tore the electric service mast off the side of our fifty-year-old two-story house. Although we still had power, the lines were on the ground, and we knew it was just a matter of time before the local utility EWEB came along and disconnected us...at which point it would be our problem to get the service mast repaired before EWEB would reconnect us.
All electricians in the area were booked out for days with the storm related blackouts, but
Eugene Electricians Provider Name Locked
essentially committed to us on standby, ready to come out as soon as EWEB turned us off. And sure enough, four days later EWEB did so. Sunset came out within an hour of our call. The service box had
Eugene Electricians Provider Name Locked
damage to some old, hard to order parts, and the conduit was damaged beyond repair, but Sunset was able to replace both the box and custom-bend new conduit that same afternoon and install them in compliance with modern code standards. Although EWEB was not able to restore our power that night, we got it reconnected the next day, no doubt thanks to Sunset's calls to the utility. Both EWEB and the city inspector complimented Sunset's work.
This all happened before the insurance adjuster came out, so we were a bit anxious about the cost. But on reviewing the invoice and the work, the adjuster said the cost was entirely reasonable.
So to sum up:

provided us with high-quality work at reasonable cost and minimized our inconvenience during a time when lots of people our area were still in cold dark houses. Thanks, guys!

It went very well. I called in the morning and the service provider was at my home at 1:00. He was very professional and courteous. He worked diligently and resolved both issues. I was extremely pleased.

I went down phone book looking for a contractor. Called a number of them. I actually got a human at Majestic. That was a good sign as far as I was concerned. The owner offered to visit the house and give an estimate. I said sure, when. He was in the area so within the hour he arrived.
Upon arrival he suggested he come back later when he had some time to secure the pipe with the power cable in it, it was hanging off the house. The main support had been ripped off of the wall. I said sure, we walked around and he offered an estimate. I told him lets do it, when can you do it. He indicated it was really up to the power company, because the line had to be disconnected. he then offered to take care of all of the problems, and basically make the fix turnkey for me. He would call the inspectors, get things ready, and make sure all went smoothly. I asked how much more that costs, and he said it costs nothing more. I said yes. Within a few days, the power company was ready to inspect. He sent two people out, as they arrived the power company arrived, and removed power. One dug a trench for grounding, while the other dealt with the power feed. After they were done, they contacted the power company and they arrived in about 10 minutes. Power was restored, and all was well... While there the tech checked every contact in the fuse box for being loose. he found one or two and tightened them. He did not have to even have to check, he just did because it was something he could do... That is nice to see now days.

The day following the quote, an underling arrived to do the work. I showed him the outlet box I had previously purchased for the install. He looked at the generator plug, generator cable, and generator and went about his business. On initial inspection, the box was hung on the wall and the circuit breakers were neatly arranged.
Two days later I get a bill for $650 (?!?!?). I paid it. Whatever, I figured. All electricians are basically liars anyway.
Flash forward to the ice storm of February 2014. As the trees were popping and falling all around my neighborhood, I knew that the power would soon go out. I wasn't apprehensive as I knew that I had had the foresight to hook up a generator drop for my home the previous spring. When the power finally did go out, I collected my generator and set out to plug in and enjoy the storm.
As soon as I got to the plug I noticed I had been duped. Where I was expecting a 4 prong 30-amp switch, I was greeted with a 3 prong 50 amp job. The generator work
Eugene Electricians Provider Name Locked
did was essentially worthless. I could not run my well, my hot water heater,
or my range. I spent the next 4 days in a freezing and dark house waiting for the power to come back on so I could call
Eugene Electricians Provider Name Locked
to fix their work.
When the power did come on, the owner and I spoke and I told him about my experiences and urged him in no uncertain terms that I was extremely displeased and that he needed to come fix it. To my amazement, he did, at "no charge." (

, thanks for not charging me for the work that I already overpaid for).
So, in the end,
Eugene Electricians Provider Name Locked
will quote you whatever they want, charge you whatever they want, and do whatever work they want to do, irregardless of the customers parameters, directions, and supplies.

In every way it was wonderful. The persons estimating and doing the work were a pleasure to meet and completely trustworthy. Work was done well, and efficiently. They gave me advice regarding what was the most feasible and inexpensive ways to accomplish my objectives, at every stage from the initial consultation, to even changes in my plan as I saw how it was coming out and thought it through as they were doing the work.
