First Choice for Emergency Electrical Repairs
Tackling electrical repairs on your own is never advisable unless you have a sufficient amount of skill and experience. Whether it’s a blown bulb or power shortage, Mr. Electric has the expertise to assist with any urgent electrical work that’s required in your home.
We have electricians in all parts of the UK who are available 24/7 and can typically respond to electrical emergencies within 45 minutes.
When you call Mr. Electric, you’ll be greeted by an electrician wearing full uniform and carrying ID that can be produced upon request. All of our technicians also drive clearly marked vans, giving you reassurance that you’re dealing with a professional and trustworthy electrical company.
No matter the emergency, we’ll always ensure that any remedial work is fully quoted and approved by you first. To minimise disruption to your home, our electricians wear shoe protectors and use dust covers wherever necessary, and will make sure to clean up thoroughly once work is complete.
Because we’re a NICEIC Approved Contractor, any work we carry out is protected by the NICEIC Platinum Promise, as well as our own 12-month guarantee. It also means that all of our technicians have been trained and assessed to the very highest standard, with all work conforming to British Standard 7671 (The Wiring Regulations) and Part ‘P’ of the Building Regulations for England and Wales.
A Safety-First Approach to Electrical Repairs
At Mr. Electric, keeping our customers safe is the number one priority. We will take the time to conduct an electrical safety test with every callout, free of charge, to ensure that all electrical installations in your home comply with the relevant safety standards. Our electricians have a duty to inform you of anything that poses a risk to your personal safety – such as exposed wiring or an overheated fuse – and advise on the solutions available, allowing you to make an informed decision.
How Mr. Electric Can Help
The first thing we’ll do when you call us is establish how soon you need any remedial work completed. If the fault poses an imminent risk to your safety – for example, a sparking fuse box that could result in a fire – we’ll get one of our electricians on the scene immediately. However, if you simply wish to repair a faulty plug socket, your need for emergency assistance may not be as high. Either way, we will always work to a time that suits you. Here are some of the most common repairs we can assist with:
A power cut can be annoying at the best of times, but it could also indicate that there’s a fault with the electrics in your home. Sometimes it will just be a case of flicking the relevant switch in your fuse box, but if you’re unsure of the cause or would rather not take the risk, calling a professional is the safest course of action. Our electricians will be able to diagnose the problem and provide a quick fix, or, if necessary, escalate it to your electricity provider.
If your lights are flickering, buzzing, or not turning on and off, it could mean that the wattage is wrong. Alternatively, there may be a bad connection between the bulb and switch. If replacing the bulb doesn’t help, Mr. Electric will be able to establish the root cause and get your lights shining again.
Electrical Device Arcing
If you detect a weird fishy smell from a switch or wall socket, it might mean that the connection to an electrical device’s circuit has been damaged – commonly known as ‘arcing’. When this happens, the electricity will jump to complete the circuit, which can result in a fire. Our local presence and 24/7 coverage allows us to respond promptly in such cases.
If you have an emergency or routine repair that needs taking care of, get in touch with Mr. Electric today on 0800 7311 606.
I have used Mr.Electric on a number of occasions and each time have had a different technician, they have always been friendly fast and very efficient. Keep up the good work.
Excellent service. The second time I have had these guys. Only issue was that they forgot to do one of the extras I asked them to do when they arrived - and I forgot to remind them (faulty bathroom heater).
Very efficient and well-mannered staff.

Super fast service,
Prompt and efficient service by friendly technicians
We were changing the light fitting in our kitchen and needed it doing in two stages firstly unwire and take down the old florescent light then the ceiling was going to be re plastered and left to dry out before painting, 15 mins plus travel surprised as your site states no callout charges to be asked for £90.00 for the 14 hours work, but paid and asked for this to be taken into account when the electrician came back when the ceiling was ready for the new LED unit to be placed and wired up, and Steve was as good as his word and discounted the further payment to take into account of the original £90 already paid.
Arrived bang on time having only phoned the previous afternoon. Very polite and professional.

After a number of failed attempts to get local electricians in I contacted Mr Electric by email, had a swift and detailed response and arranged a quote. They turned up on time, the quote was received by email 2 days later and we agreed on the works. Steve in the office and Steve the sparky who visited to carry out the work have done everything they promised on time and on budget, excellent service!
A very quick and efficient service with well mannered staff.
