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 sadly cannot give one star. Lee Ives the managing director came out because someone else was on a job. He failed to recognise the make of Fuse Box so took a photo and sent to someone else. (It took me 2 mins to Google it and find the same information). I suggested it could be a faulty RCD (rccb) he suggested it could be a blown bulb. As he didn't have a spare RCD to add he went to move over a circuit and when he disconnected the hot tub the power worked again. He then left the hot tub disconnected and switched everything back on. He suggested we get a hot tub engineer as he doesn't fix them. He then charged us 75 for a total of 25min "work". The next day the same problem occurred... After some googling I tapped the rccb with a screw driver and it started working again. (the springs inside seize up sometimes). Wanting our clearly non faulty hot tub connecting and a new RCD (rccb) fitted we contacted mr.electric (Lee) said he would send someone the next day. He said a new RCD would be about 60. (I brought one from screwfix for 24). The electrician (not Lee) came and went to add the RCD that Lee had sent him with... It didn't FIT. (Lee should have googled it). Luckily the RCD I brought did fit. The electrician then connected this and reconnected the hot tub. Everything was now working. Lee wanted an additional 50. So in total for less than 1hours work, no parts (as we provided this), photography of the fuse box and some googling!! Lee wanted to charge 125. Unhappy we spoke to him on the phone. He told us it was a call out charge despite his website saying "no call out charge". He told us they came out twice.... We pointed out he clearly didn't know what he was doing. We did pay as the young electrician he sent on day 2 was competent and its not his fault. We will not be using them again and recommend others do not.

Very Good service, excellent
Richard and Alex (East Anglia) were super helpful in the process leading up to the work, helping plan what we needed and how we could work around some of the unusual materials we're using in our renovation. During the job they were tidy and friendly. We will definitely be using them again.
