We used Lightning Electrical on a large commercial factory project, which included a main switchboard upgrade and general power data infrastructure install across the site during a renovation and built project. Lightning electrical were price competitive and their crew professional, knowledgeable and trustworthy. Highly recommend their services and would not hesitate in using them again on future project or general maintenance.

From the time I got in touch with Maggie, Peter and their crew - their communication and eye for detail was second to none. Having used other service providers in the past and being a business owner myself what impressed me was their clear lines of communication and the fact that they delivered what they said they could with no fuss. I will definitely use these folks again. Thanks Peter and crew

Super happy with the process and the end result. From the outset, it was great to get the creative input from Pete who understood how to embrace the unique features of our bedroom. We also really valued his communication skills, technical expertise and ability to execute. Place left clean and tidy too. Looking forward to working with Pete again for the next room!
