OnTime has good customer service. They said they'd call 30 minutes before they came, and they did. The worker was respectful and did an excellent job. I was very impressed. I would give them an A+. I'm happy.

They did my breaker box. I appreciated that they took their time and did it correctly. I recommend them very highly. They're an A.

I wish all the workers that came here would be as nice, quick, and efficient as the young men from OnTime. I can't say enough about them. They cleaned all the mess up after themselves. They deserve an A+.

OnTime fixed our problem very efficiently. They were pleasant, professional, and did a great job. I'd recommend them.

They did what they said they were going to do and got it done. They installed a TV receptacle in the wall and a cable receptacle, and then I had three or four other items of an electrical nature that I was waiting to do all at one time. I think they fixed a couple plugs and some other stuff. We were remodeling our house. I'd use them again. The electrician was very professional and very good. No problems. I would go with an A+. They did what they said they were going to do and did it well.

I've had a very positive experience. They're friendly and honest. I guess the on time part should go without saying, but they're on time. They did several things. They wired a water heater. They also installed some lights on our porch, and they fixed a couple electrical outlets. I would definitely use the company again. The electrician was very, very nice—so nice that we've recommended him to other people. He came back out to do one thing, and we had him come back out to do more stuff. I would say it's an A+.

It wasn't negative at all. They were just nice people to do business with. They wired my house. I'm sure I would use the company again; I just haven't had any problems. I liked everything concerning them. I would recommend them. They're an A+.

They were great and superb in every respect. We don't have any complaints at all. It's an A+.

I've had a very positive experience. They were very professional. They did what they came out to do. They were on time and courteous. I was very pleased. One of the things they came out to do was maintenance. And then we talked about adding another service, and he went to get the parts and came back and did it the same day. Then he also did things that he didn't have to do. They're very dependable. I would highly recommend them. They get an A+.

They were pleasant to work with. They were educated, and they were thorough. They did some electrical work on a fan. The light wasn't working. I would use them again. The electrician that came out was fine. They were an A+.
