Absolute Electric was wonderful. They're very prompt. He arrived at exactly the time that we had set. Then, he explained everything. We were having a problem with a fuse. He explained what was wrong, what had happened, and why the switch wasn't working. It was very good—perfect. They're an A+.

The experience was outstanding. They were really good. It was a young gentleman who came out, and he was very professional, very clear, and explained each step of what he was doing. Any questions I had, he answered. It was just an all-around good experience, considering I had to install something I wasn't planning on installing. I would use them again in a heartbeat. They were so amazing—I would definitely grade them an A+.
