We were extremely pleased with Wilcox Electric. They contacted us in advance to confirm the date and time. The electrician, Nelson Rivas, arrived at the agreed time. He was very efficient and replaced our lamps in a short time. He was required to perform some extra placement work on one of the lamps. He also replaced an interior exhaust fan at our request. Nelson was prompt, efficient, and profess...

The electrician, Dale, showed up on time and quickly deduced what was causing the issue. Apparently when the house was build 20 years ago there was only one dedicated circuit for our kitchen and formal dining room. We've made several appliance upgrades since then and now whenever we ran the sink disposal, the microwave, and the formal dining room lights simultaneously it would cause an issue. In a...

So pleased to read these kind words about Dale. He is a superstar in our world, the electrician who will trace out and isolate the cause of the most intractable power loss problem. He's also the "salt of the earth." Thank you for the review! Tracy Wilcox

Really great service, workmanship, overall price and experience. I would definitely recommend Wilcox — and Steve Smith specifically — to anyone who needed an electrician! He installed a new outlet for us, which requires cutting 2 holes in the drywall, but he was very clean and meticulous, and made sure to fix it up when he was done so all we had to do was a little spackling and painting.

Thank you for the review! Steve Smith is indeed meticulous. We have a total of eight electricians and Steve Wilcox, the owner. Each electrician brings their own strength in electrical knowledge and experience, and each earns his place in our company every day. Steve is your guy for electrical repairs and upgrades, what we call "service work." He does not work on the larger jobs, since he prefers t...

In terms of how did it go well out of 1 to 10 it was a firm 10. The first technician that came out did an analysis of our game plan, his name is Dale. He was kind courteous and made me laugh! Melas Who actually came and installed the doorbell was again kind courteous and very thoughtful! So many times we’ve been disappointed with things like this and I am just so happy to say that all said and don...

I have nothing but praise for Steve Wilcox and his team of professionals. Steve himself came and did the walk-through and estimate. He was knowledgable, prompt and responsive. The crew that did the work was professional and thorough. The administrative office kept in good communication with me throughout the process, which was complicated by the pandemic. But they made it work and their quality is...

Thank you for the most kind words! I am especially pleased to read this review because of the size of the job. There are more moving parts in these larger jobs, which means more opportunities to shine or to fall short. It's also great to learn that my staff maintained good communication throughout the process. (I am a broken record about the importance of communication with our customers and with ...
