Description

Rick Thompson Electric is a family owned business that was started in 1981 by my father. When dad decided to retire and after working for him for more than 15 years, I decided to buy the company in 2005 to keep the name in the family. Still a family owned and operated business, we continue to provide excellent service to our customers. All of our employees go through a complete background check and attend a 4 year apprenticeship program to ensure you are always provided with a quality and knowledgeable electrician on all jobs.

When I first called, he walked me through some troubleshooting in case it was an easy fix so I could avoid being charged if possible. When the troubleshooting didn't work, he was able to get to our house quickly and fix...

While I did not hire, Rick Thompson Electric were straight forward and explained they did not do work on B&S Generators; however, they did provide me with the number for Inspired Electrical who I am working with. Not many companies will be straight forward and recommend a competitor. Definitely signs of a true professional!

SERVICE PROVIDER RESPONSE

We strive to make our customers happy and in this case unfortunately we just were not given that opportunity. When we ...
