“Everything was great. They installed a fixture up high in the foyer, and they redid a couple of others that needed remounting that I hadn't done a good job on. A+—everything was great; everything was perfect. They did some work before, that's why I called them back; I was happy with them.”

“The gentleman was able to respond—my house had been hit by lightning—so he was able to respond the next day. So-quick, and he was able to ensure that the house wasn't going to burn down. I got them in Best Pick Reports, and I'd give them an A. I'm highly likely to recommend them.”

“Belco Electric got the job done in a timely manner. They've done electrical, commercial work. They deserve an A—it's still working, so it was good, and they were on time. I'm likely to recommend them. I've used the Best Pick Reports a little bit, not tremendously—I'd give the book an A.”

“Everything was just most wonderful. They did a good job, did it, and they met all expectations. We ran some electrical boxes, switches outside—the backyard setting I guess. I think we completed everything in one day, five hours, six hours—something like that. They just get an A+ all the way down the line.”

“I've used them in the past, but it's been a few years. I mean, we were extremely pleased. The last job was a repair of a light fixture. They deserve an A+.”

“Our tech was just really nice. He communicated with me, he was friendly, helpful, and provided a lot of great information. I'd give them an A+.”

“They've done electrical—I can't even remember what they did, but it was all electrical. I'd give them an A++.”

“Belco Electric—they were great. They did some electrical job, I don't know exactly, but I'd give them an A.”

“Everything was good with them, and they were very thorough. They were trying to hunt down a short that I had in the house. So, they had to basically take a look in a whole bunch of different rooms to check all the wiring, all the sockets and stuff like that. They unfortunately were not able to find it, because there wasn't any flagrant, giant disconnection—but they taped everything down better, and kind of made it a bit more clean in the walls, I guess you can say. The frequency of that short happening has greatly diminished, so it's pretty much fixed. I'd give them an A; quality is really good. I can't remember if he was on time or not.”

“They're doing great. Great job, with consistent service, good installation. I'd give Belco Electric an A.”

“I think it was just hanging the new fixture, or something like that. Pat Murphy Electric came in when they said they were going to, it took the amount of time they'd said it would, and they didn't leave a mess. I know exactly what it was—that's when they hung the chandeliers. I put a new chandelier in the dining room and a new one in the foyer. I'd give them an A+; they were friendly to work with, and I would definitely use them again.”

“The guy was just very polite, on time, did what he was supposed to do, and just was very friendly. He installed a fan motor in my attic fan. I would give them an A+. If I needed to call them again, I would. So far, so good; the fan motor is vibrating a little bit, but it doesn't seem to affect it, so I'm not worried about it.”

“They came when they said they were coming, they did the job, and they know their stuff—I just can't ask for anything better. They did some work in the basement area. I'd give them tops, A+. I would recommend Belco.”

“We were very happy with Belco Electric—they came out promptly, they did what they said they would do, they gave us a good estimate, and they did the work well. They originally came out for a problem we had, and they fixed that, but then we had them switch out our box, our electrical box which had been old. I'd give them an A+.”

“The work was done once, and it was done well. They installed recess lighting for me. They deserve an A.”

“They were efficient, and they were reliable. They fixed the ceiling fan. I'd give them an A.”

“They were professional. Belco installed electrical stuff—I'm not really sure. I'd give them an A.”

“I was looking for a quote to install an all-home generator, and I quickly learned that they do not do a heck of a lot of that, based on their quote, versus the competition. We've always had good success with them, positive—aside from the generator. They've rewired a fixture in the living room, and they did some rewiring in the garage. I mean they've done all kinds of little things, here and there—we don't call anybody else when we have projects like that. I'd give them an A.”

“I used Belco Electric a while back for installing chandeliers. He appeared to be competent in what he was doing; also, very friendly and cordial. I'd give them an A.”

“They did a general electrical check on my house. They were very professional and very nice. Belco was a very good choice—perfect, actually. I'd give them an A.”

“The electrician fixed several outlets in the garage and a light in the kitchen. He was very thorough, and he told me what kind of fixture to get for the kitchen. I'd give them an A+. He was really good.”

“Belco replaced some sockets. They were very easy to work with. You give them a call, they look at it, they say what the job's going to be, and there you go. I'd give them an A+.”

“They were very helpful and very informative. They didn't just fix it and hand over the receipt; they showed us a better way to secure our electrical boxes and what needed to be done in the future. I would give Belco an A+.”

“I was very pleased with them. in fact, we went ahead and got a warranty for a year, so they're going to come out and do a checkup for us, and if we need any further service, we'll be the right away. They were very professional. They were there when they were supposed to be, and they did what they were supposed to do. We're just all around very impressed. If we have any type of problem that's electrical, that's going to be the company that we call. They earned an A+.”

“Belco hung a light fixture on the ceiling. They were very knowledgeable of what they were doing and very nice. We'd give them an A+.”

“I had a short outside at the electrical box, and the utility company had to be here too, but he was very good. If it hadn't had been for him I never would have been able to get the utility company back out here again recently. He was very nice and courteous. He came a lot earlier that day than I expected him to, which was a plus. Between him and the utility company, they got everything fixed. I'd give him a double A+. I was very pleased with the company. I also recommended him to my son that lives in Buckhead.”

“The problem turned out to be much simpler than I thought. They checked out a switch, and I thought they were going to have to install a new motion detector but it turned out the one that I had was working. The fellow who came had been here before, and he's very dependable, on time, and knows what he's doing. I'd give them an A+.”

“I needed some help with my upstairs smoke detector, and they also did a general check of power and outlets throughout my house. The service representative was nice, helpful, and informative. They were pretty easy to schedule and got out there quickly. They get an A.”

“He was very polite, seemed to know what he was doing, and I liked the way they charge by the hour. I would give them an A.”

“They did minor work, replacing an electrical socket, but it was mostly the quality of work and the timeliness of the appointment that I liked. For the quality of work and good customer service they get an A from me.”

“We had them change out some electrical plates and check a few other things while they were here. They seem to be professional and knew what they were doing. They did A work.”

“They've done electrical work for us twice. It happened on a weekend, but it was a positive experience. They were quick, fast, and friendly. They responded to the call in a timely manner. I'd rate them A.”

“They replaced my box. They were available on the weekend, and they responded promptly. I called three places, left a message with them, and they called me back and said they would come out. They get an A.”

“It was good. They came to do some rewiring due to a lightning strike here at the house. They were on time, and it was just good working with them. They earned an A.”

“They put sconces in, fixed some of my can lights, and hung a chandelier. They did a good job. I would give them an A.”

“They didn't have to do too much, but our microwave and oven had blown, and we couldn't get them to come back on. We'd tried the circuit breaker, and then eventually the oven started working, but the microwave was still dead so my husband was a little suspicious about it being an outlet. They came out and didn't see a problem. We ended up having to just buy a new microwave, but then while he was here I had him give us an estimate on some things that my husband wanted to have done. He was very friendly and nice, and he was good about taking his time and answering questions and explaining things. They'd get an A from us.”

“Whatever I've requested, they have done it, and they'd get an A.”

“We just had an outage. They got the job done. I would rate them A.”

“I liked everything about Belco. I really appreciated the fact that Tim Jackson came out—the manager of all the techs that come out. He came free of charge to double-check the employees that had come the night before for an after-hours call, just to make sure they did everything correctly. One of our primes started smelling like burning wires, and they wanted to make sure there was nothing wrong with our circuit box. I'd grade them an A+.”

“Belco did real good work. The fellow that came out knew what he was doing. He got it fixed, and I was impressed. We'd had an electrical storm, and the electricity in the garage went out. A couple of those GFCI outlets that I bought had zotched out. He came in, figured it out, got it done, and was out of here in a short period of time. He did A work.”

“Belco was here at one time, quite a while ago, but they were very good. I kept the little sticker to refer them if I find anybody who wants a name. He put up a chandelier and did a good job. He was very nice, did it very quickly, and left. I'd say it was excellent.”

“I like their customer service and their response time. They did electrical work. I heard about them through Best Pick Reports. I'd give them an A+.”

“Belco did a good job putting in my ceiling fan. They were on time, and they did the job right. They even corrected somebody else's mistake. I got them out of the Best Pick Reports. They're an A+.”

“Belco was just very professional and did a great job. He routed some wiring for us. I'd give them an A+.”

“Belco came out, they did a good job, and they were flexible. They installed a ceiling light for me. I'd rate them as an A+.”

“Belco was very quick to respond. I had them to replace an electrical light fixture. I had taken a little bit of time and called around, but I got several different people that said they would be there a few days later, so I chose them. I'd grade them an A+.”

“They were polite and professional when I called, and they were on time with the date. He did the services that were required. He had to install a lightning rod for me. I chose them because of that Cobb County Best Pick Reports. He gets an A+.”

“We've used Belco Electric, and I would give them an A. They've always done a good job. We've had them out several times to fix normal stuff, and they always get the thing fixed.”

“I'll just say Belco did a good job.”

“Belco did some work for us quite a while ago. He did a really nice job. The service was completed, and he was very courteous.”

“I had no problems at all. Belco did a real good job. I had them fix a few things. They took care of it, and I'm very pleased. They mainly did outlets for me. The outlets weren't working, so they fixed the switches and replaced one outlet. I'll grade them as an A.”

“Belco worked on a ground fault switch and installed an outlet for me. The technician who came out was very helpful. He did a good job. They deserve an A.”

“Belco was just very accommodating, friendly, and helpful. He moved an outlet to a different location and put a dimmer in one of our lights. I'll give them an A.”

“Belco did a good job. They were very friendly and professional, and they did exactly what we needed to do, so it was good. We did some wiring in the basement. I'd rate them an A.”

“Belco Electric added lights for me, and they were fine. They replaced a light switch that had burned out. I would give him an A. He was great.”

“Belco did good. They showed up when they were supposed to, and they fixed things when they were supposed to. They did a ceiling fan for me. I'd give them an A, and I'm a tough grader.”

“Belco Electric did a bang-up, first-rate job—I couldn't rate them high enough. They took an old chandelier down and reworked the system for a new one. He had all the stuff with him, and it couldn't have been any better. I began using them a long time ago. Every time we have some electrical work to do, we call them, and they've knocked it out of the park every time—A+.”

“The tech from Belco Electric was knowledgeable and very quick, and he did an excellent job of installing a light fixture in the ceiling. I also had some outlets that needed to be changed, and he was very quick and efficient with that. I'd give them an A+.”

“They were great, and I'm loving the work they did. The guy was very pleasant, and he worked very efficiently and told me what he was doing. He moved an electric box in the ceiling and installed a security light at the back of my house. They're A+.”

“I use Belco; they've done electrical maintenance for me. They're thorough, very knowledgeable, and on time. When they say they're going to be there, they're going to be there. My past experience is that they've been really good. I found them through Best Pick Reports, and I would rate them as an A.”

“We had limitless fixtures replaced—I don't know how many, but a lot. Everything went well with them. It was great. The technician that came out and did all the work was terrific. He has been with them for a long time, and he was first-class. He did a great job. He was a friendly guy and very professional. I would give them an A+.”

“I had Belco Electric in January, and they were awesome. The electrician rewired my dishwasher. He was professional and knew what he was doing, and he cleaned up after everything. He did everything you would expect. I'd definitely give them an A+.”

“We've used Belco—we actually got them from Best Pick Reports. They replaced switches and kind of updated stuff. They were great, and I'd give them an excellent grade. Their customer service was very good, too. I'd say they get an A.”

“He installed a fan. They did a great job. They were on time when the guy came and looked at what had to be done. They told me up front what it would cost, and he did an excellent job as far as the installation. I looked in Best Pick Reports to find the company, and I would give them an excellent score.”

“We used them for a fan upstairs that kept tripping our house. They were wonderful. They came out, did what they had to do, and told us how to fix things. They disabled it, so we could still use the fan, but not the light. I would recommend them—I remember them helping me out. I'd give them an A.”

“It was great. When we had a problem with one of the outlets that wasn't working, the guy was here promptly, figured out what the problem was, and came up with a proper solution. He was very communicative. He got the job done, and he got it done quickly. I would give them an A for excellence.”

We had an outlet that needed work, and he even changed the lightbulb for something else—I thought it was broken, but he realized it wasn't, and he went ahead and changed the light bulb for me. It was in the garage, and he also hooked up my ceiling fan. They are great. I would recommend them, and I would give them an A+.”

“My son had work done with Belco Electric. They did a lot—they rewired my son's entire house. It's an old house, so it had to be brought up to code and everything. They were great. They did what they said they would do, they did it on time, and they did it for the price they gave me. The technician was Matt, and he was delightful. I had no problem. Best Pick Reports referred me to them. I'd give them an A+—I have no complaints.”

“Everything was perfect. I liked Belco Electric. They worked on one of the outlets. I had a wire hanging out, and I felt it wasn't safe; they came to fix it, and it was perfect. They did a fabulous job. They came on time and fixed everything rapidly. I seriously loved it. I would give them an A.”

“I hired Belco when I was getting my house ready to sell, and they did a good job. We had a couple of outlets that needed to be corrected because they were not installed correctly. There was a problem with them the first time they came out, and they came right back out with no problem. They were very easy to work with. I would give them an A.”

“The gentleman that did the job was very helpful. He explained everything and did a good job—whatever he did, he did a good job. I would recommend Belco; I would rate them an A.”

“We have used Belco many times. It went fine—everything was all right.”

“They did some work for me. They fixed broken light fixtures, and they straightened out and fixed an old wiring panel that was kind of messed up. They were very good; I was very pleased with it. They were on time, and they were professional. They came twice—one time, it was two guys; the second time it was just one guy. They did all the work I needed done, and they did it very well. That is the main thing I would say—they took care of what I needed, they were good about it, and they explained things to me. I would definitely use them again, no problem. I would give them an A. They did a good job.”

They are prompt, they do a good job, and their service people are very pleasant and professional. I am very comfortable. They sent the same guy all three times that I have used them, and I feel comfortable having them in the house. They get an A.”

“They came to do a circuit check when I had a blown fuse in my box. They did a very good job. I liked the quickness of the response, and the work was done with no messes and no problems. They left all the information very well, and they did a very good job. I would definitely recommend them. I'd give them an A.”

“Belco Electric did work for me when we had a fire that started in the wall of the basement. Belco had to come out, find the electrical wires that were within the wall, and do some rewiring to take care of that issue. The work was done pretty quickly, and the gentleman was very good at explaining what he thought went on and showed me where the problems were. I thought they did a pretty good job. I'd give them an A.”

“Belco Electric fixed the lights in the bathroom, because they were all going out. It had to do with the outlet. They were really nice about it and very friendly, and I was treated well. I chose to work with them because of Best Pick Reports. I'd give them an A rating.”

“We had them come out and do some work. One thing he did was install some hallway lights to change out the fixture above it. Also, he put some cables through our walls; it was on one side of the room, and we wanted it to come out on the other side. I was happy with their professional and friendly attitude, and I thought the work was well done. They did what I needed them to do and did it in a timely manner. The price was agreed on beforehand, so I was happy with the work. I would say they are an A.”

“I had a fantastic experience with Belco. They had to reinstall an entire junction box and pull the cabling back up to the pole. They're not only exceptional in the work that they did, but they're also extremely friendly and very helpful. They went over and above what they needed to do. It was great—A+.”

“We had the most enthusiastic electrician I've ever met in my life. He was a happy camper, someone who loves his job and loves all the aspects of it. It was really a pleasure. We had him run the wiring for the cellar, and then we had a hot tub put in. He did a great job.”

“The electrician from Belco was awesome. He was really polite and professional. He answered all my questions. He put a reset breaker in, and he fixed an outlet. The previous person that was there couldn't figure it out, but he did; he was wonderful.”

“I use Belco Electric. They're excellent. They do electrical work—small and large jobs—and they're excellent.”

“Our electrician was from Belco, and they were an A+. They put some pod lights in our kitchen and put in a new circuit breaker box. It was done within a day with no problems. That was a positive experience.”

“Belco Electric knows what they're doing, and they were very responsive. I had to have a service upgrade, which was pretty involved. They had to ground a new mast, meter, and breaker panel, and I had GFCI outlets and a new smoke detector installed.”

“Belco Electric is very dependable. They wired my whole basement and installed lighting. I'd definitely give them an A+.”

“We moved in last September, and we use Belco because we use Home Reports. We love Home Reports—that's how we find everything. Belco came out, and we had very strange electrical connections, like the positives and negatives were reversed. And then we needed outside lighting installed, and they did quite a bit for us, and they've come out two or three times since. And they're excellent, too. I had a very positive experience. They were very courteous. I think they give you an hour for a flat rate. I was here to let the guy in, and I had a few things on the list, and I said, 'Do you have time for this?' And he goes, 'You have like ten more minutes, and I'll get this next thing done for you.' I'm sure he went over the hour, actually. And then when they came back, another gentleman came from the same company, and he was awesome. I find everybody in Georgia, I'm from Pennsylvania, and I just could kiss everybody that does work here. I'd give them an A+.”

“We used Belco Electric. It was very positive. They have great service, and the technician was really good. They replaced a chandelier. I would grade them whatever the highest is, an A+. I would use them again.”

“I had one guy come out and wire up some fans in the attic. Those guys seem like they knew their stuff. He was an experienced guy, and he came in and did the job. He was out of here in an hour, and we've had no problem since.”

“I have used Belco Electric. I had switched out outlets and had a lighting fixture that stopped working because the outlet broke. The technicians that came out were definitely hardworking. They did a great job, and they cleaned up after themselves. I would certainly use them again. They're an A.”

“Belco has come several times. They just happened to come yesterday and found out things that we've been having at our house, and they corrected it. They're an A.”

“I had a positive experience with Belco. They rewired about half the house. They were prompt, and they did the work in a timely fashion. They were clean and pleasant. And everything works. I'd give them an A.”

“Belco installed the electric fan. I'm satisfied with them. They are very prompt, and the quality of their work is good. It is in one of the reports, too.”
