    KARNOWSKI ELECTRIC CO
    I found Karnowski Electric Company on Angie's List, called and he arrived within an hour and stayed until the job was finished. He was professional, had a friendly crew that worked through their lunch to get my power back on quickly. I would not hesitate to call them again when I need an electrian.

    Eakins Electric Company

    My neighbor recommended Eakins.   I am relatively new to the area and haven't needed the services of an electrician in the past.  I phoned Eakins early last week, and the woman who helped me over the phone was amazing.  She gave me really good suggestions about what to consider when purchasing items for installation, etc...   We scheduled an appointment for today at 8 AM.  I was surprised they didn't give a "window" of time and simply said "we'll be there at 8 AM".   I rushed to purchase the items necessary for the job (total cost approx. $700).    When no one showed up this morning or called by 8:20 AM, I phoned their office and was told they were just running a little late.  They apologized and said they would be here shortly.    At 9:00 AM I phoned back and asked about the status since no one showed up for the job or called me back.    I was then told they probably wouldn't be able to make it this morning, but they "might" be able to make it this afternoon....but no guarantees.   They asked if we could reschedule for next week.   I couldn't take the offer for a reschedule since I will be out of town until the holiday weekend, and I really wanted the work done prior to out of town guests arriving.      They said they would try to get to my house this afternoon, but they couldn't make any promises.   The indicated they were doing the best they could due to the circumstances.  Another job ran longer than they expected.

    I understand things happen out of our control, and business needs sometimes suffer; however, their major mistake was not calling and letting me know up front.  I had to follow up with them twice before I was told they couldn't do the job.     I waited to see if anyone would call me back or try to show up in the afternoon to make things right, but I never heard from anyone.   I will have to hire another electrician to complete the job.

    KARNOWSKI ELECTRIC CO
    I was on a job in California and gave them a call explaining that I needed my new trailer wired. They went to my place and found out the poles coming into the property were rotten so they took the initiative to call the co-op and schedule them to be replaced. Once the poles were replaced he went in and changed everything from the weather head to the house plus hooked up the water well with new wiring. Again, this was all done without meeting face to face. The finished product is a very professional looking electrical service hookup. I am very pleased and will be using them again for my new barn. Thank you for helping me!

    Eakins Electric Company
    First let me start off by saying we have been calling electricians for 6 months with no luck getting call backs or estimates. The one electrician that did come out and look at the job, ultimately refused to make a bid. We called Eakins Electric because 2 people referred us to him. We didn't get an immediate call back, but once they did make contact, Jason Eakin estimated the job pretty quickly and made very helpful suggestions on what type of fixtures to use, where to put switches and lights, and how much lighting for each area. I have all good things to report about this company. They were prompt on their appointments. They started the work on time and finished ahead of schedule. The crews were friendly, respectful and punctual. I really liked how they cleaned up after themselves. They even left my rooms cleaner than when they came in. They were friendly to my children and even let them and quot;help.and quot; (they didn't do anything electrical - one son took the crew a hammer and my other son pulled a nail out of the wall). I will gladly refer this company to anyone.

    KARNOWSKI ELECTRIC CO
    They were very knowledgeable and reasonably with the cost. Along with everything done he got the permit from the city to do the work and worked with city inspector and the power company. I just sat back and they did all the work.

    Eakins Electric Company
    Scheduled electrician approx. 2 weeks before I actually purchased the house. When issues delayed the closing, they changed their schedule to accommodate me then was there promptly on the day when they were rescheduled. They also coordinated the work schedule with Victoria Electric Coop. They gave me an initial estimate and even after I added extra work, his cost was only $185 over the original estimate. He had employees doing some of the work and the only issue I had was the paneling around the inside breaker panel was chipped; however, I will eventually remove the paneling anyway. I never met Mr. Eakins and handled everything on the phone. He answered his phone promptly and answered my questions and offered suggestions. I had someone at the house while the work was being performed and I was told that a lead employee was rude to a co-worker and wanted to rush while playing loud music on his phone; however, Mr. Eakins came and checked all the work and if he didn't like the way something was done, he would correct it himself. It was obvious he took pride in his company and wanted things to be done right. He installed the best breakers in the inside panel. When VEC had a problem with the height of the weather head, Mr. Eakins came by himself to correct it during a holiday weekend. After VEC turned on the electricity, Mr. Eakins came to the house promptly to label all the breakers in the inside breaker panel. He also inspected all the receptacles in the house. He and his wife were pleasant to work with and did not cause me any stress since I had to handle everything on the phone. Wish I could say the same about the plumber!

    Swift Electric
    Owner made an appointment to change breaker box. He never showed and never called to explain why. I called and tried to schedule another appointment on 3 different occasions, he never called me back. Finally on the 4th and last time he gave me a firm appointment. The day of the appointment about 30 minutes before he was supposed to show, he sent me a text message saying he couldn't do the job and told me to use someone else. He could have at least called to tell me he can't do it for the price he quoted me at instead of telling me on 3 different occasions that he can do it for that price. I rearranged my schedule for him to get the work done only to have him not show. Do not use Swift Electric for anything.

    Swift Electric
    The owner of Swift Electric gave me a very good quote to have a project done on my house. I had another electrician quote me at $400 more so I chose Swift electric. I called them on May 7th and said I would like to schedule a day to get the project completed (replacing a breaker box on my house). The secretary said the owner would call me shortly to set up a time. The owner called me about 2 hours later, said the he would have time to do it the next Wednesday, May 16th, and would honor his quote of $1800.
    I rearranged my schedule for work and made sure I was available for him to be there that day in case he needed in the house or had questions about something. By 5pm he hadn't shown up and hadn't called to explain why he didn't show up. I decided to be nice and give him the benefit of the doubt. I called his secretary again the following Monday, May 21st, to see what happened. She said that he hadn't forgotten about me and said that I said it wasn't high priority (which at the time it really wasn't, but it was something that needed to be done). I told her that I would like to reschedule and have it completed by the end of the month while I had the money and the time. She said the owner would be calling me soon to schedule a day to get it done. He never called me back.
    I decided to give it another try because his quote was so much better than the other guy. So I called the secretary back on May 29th and told her that he still hadn't called me. She said that is very odd and gave me his cell number and said she would call him and tell him to call me. He never called me and never answered when I called.
    I called again June 4th and was pretty upset but I finally got a firm date set to get the work done on June 13. I was going to be out-of-town but I could arrange to have someone come over and let him in if he needs to. He had me look up a few numbers for him to make sure he could do every thing. My wife came home at lunch and said that he wasn't there and there was no sign of him at the house. The project should have taken all day. So I called the secretary to see what the deal was and she said that he had me down for that afternoon.
    About 20 minutes after getting off the phone with the secretary the owner sent me a text message telling me that "he is overbooked and does not see a time in foreseeable future that he could get the work done and I should go use one of his competitors."
    What a real stand up man and great example of a small business owner.

    KARNOWSKI ELECTRIC CO
    Excellent - very reliable and conscientious. I worked with him to locate dead connection and he fixed it and installed new circuit. Were finally able to have power in master bath and bedroom. Would definitely use again.

    C & C Electrical Service
    We contacted them based on a recommendation of a neighbor. C & C was fine to work with overall. We did have to call them back because of something that wasn’t working correctly, and they did respond quickly. I may consider working with them again.
