“We've had them multiple times, some times are better than others. Well, you know, it was—they did the work, but it took us coming back and forth a bit and also, the work to cut into the wall—they did tell me it wasn't going to look nice, but they've done better work in the past, as far as putting things back together, if you know what I mean. I wasn't 100% happy, but I wasn't really sad. The electrical work was fine; it's just the other portion= that wasn't as nice as it has been in the past. Like, in other words, cutting into my wall, into my plaster wall, and just patching it up, and it looks patched. That I wasn't happy about. And now I have to pay to have it re-done. So that's extra money on top of the bill. Not to say that they didn't do a good job. They were nice. There were a lot of positives. They've done some work for us before, and they've done a beautiful job as far as cleaning up and doing nice things. They took wires that were outside of our house, and they placed them so they were not as visible and distracting. So I kind of expected that from them. I felt it wasn't up to par. I would say a C overall. It was—they kind of told me that it was going to be messed up, so I just took for granted that they have always done a beautiful job in the past. I don't know if I'd recommend them. I'd use them, but I don't know if I'd go tell other people to use them. ”

“We hire them quite frequently here for jobs. I always have a positive experience. Well, we have a conversation before they come assessing it. They always say right up front, ‘it's a certain price for me to come, so you know you have to be serious about it.’ If you're a little worried about your money, you might not want to hear that. But I think that's kind of normal practice now. But recently, our most recent job for them was that we needed a light in our mail room, which keeps—people knock it out or its vulnerable, and we had tried to replace it ourselves and couldn't. And finally I called them and let them pick it out and it's perfect. It's got a little guard around it. It’s simple and noticeable; so they did more than just install it, he suggested exactly the right thing to put in there. I think we'd have to say A+ overall. I can't think of anything negative. If there's any draw back, it's a consumer's one; you've got to promise a—just for them just to come to the house, is some price. I'm not sure what it is. But maybe people should be alert to that. Maybe it's common practice. I would still hire them. The expertise was definitely an A with choosing this particular light for us. I would recommend them. ”

“I do remember liking them. I said such on another review site; that's where I got them actually. They installed the lamp post that I'm looking at right now. It was a good experience. They have a thing that says you can pay a lot less if you sign up for their, installment plan. You pay a maintenance fee at $10 a month that'll go on for who knows how long, or you can just pay the one price, and I just paid the one price. But I was just, I was changing lots of stuff. It'll save money in short term. I think you can do it for 18 months, but I was like, uh no, I'll just pay the one price. I'll give them an A overall. They showed up when they said they were going to. They did the job timely, orderly, and the price was within my budget. I would recommend them.”

“Probably the best experience I've ever had with a contractor. All of his guys were very polite. They were neat; they cleaned up after themselves. They were courteous. It was just a great experience. I'll give them an A+ overall. They were there exactly when they said they would be there. It was a fantastic experience. I don't usually get that. I would absolutely recommend Tingley Electric; I already have a couple of times. ”

“It was OK. I felt like I overpaid for what I got, to be honest. I'd give them a B overall. The work's OK. They've done the work well. But it was just—I realized afterward that it was very expensive. Somebody else—another electrician—came and told me it was overpriced. I can't quote the quality of the work, just the cost.”

Review by

“We were happy with the work. We were satisfied. Everything was fine. I'd give them an A overall. My only question is their price. Somehow I thought they may have been a little high in price. But, you know, I don't really have a lot of comparison. So I really, you know, that was my only question about the service. ”

“I liked that they did the analysis of what they needed to do, they came to me, they told me how much it was going to cost to do it, what I actually had to do, what I could do; so, there were no surprises. I would give them an A overall. I already have recommended Tingley Electric. ”

“They did electrical stuff, not really sure—making all my things up to code, changing some electricity—I can't really think of the words. I haven't had to call them again or anything. It was good. They did excellent work. I have no complaints, and I would recommend them. ”

Review by

“I liked that they had some different ideas than I did that proved to work actually better than what I was thinking, and the cost wasn't any different. It was just the knowledge of the products and what was available. I'd give Tingley Electric an A+.”

“I think they were very knowledgeable, thorough, did a nice job, cleaned up well, came in on time. They did two things: they installed a new thermostat; then they also changed a bunch of outlets that weren't right and changed all the smoke detectors. I'd give them an A+ overall. ”

Review by

“I would say that they were good, and we have a service contract with them. And sometimes I just feel like the contract doesn't cover as much as we had thought it would. That's my only complaint, but they do good work. And I really like Vinny who runs the company—I've known him forever. I would recommend them. ”

Review by
05/11/2017

“That Tingley Electric came right away when I called; that's what I liked about them. There was a specific name for the work; tubular wiring, I think it was called. I'll give them an A overall. I can't see the work that they did because it's inside a wall; I don't know the quality of work and expertise. My problem was fixed. ”

Review by
05/11/2017

“They did a thorough job. Of course, they gave me the answer I wanted, which they—it was correct. They were just fine. They were fine. Two very nice, young men. No problems. They were checking, I was moving from my house, and they were checking to make sure the electricity was up to snuff. I would say an A+ overall. They did what they were supposed to do. They checked my electrical system. I can’t' tell you. I didn't check. I don't know anything about it. They were fine. They were great. I have already recommended them.”

Review by

“The part of the experience that was not positive was the fact, that once the electrician that came out to the house understood the problem, he worked up an estimate and his estimate was 3,600 dollars and I had you folks out two years ago to do the exact same thing, and it was $1000, and I told him that I wasn't going to have the work done for 3600 dollars. Maybe he should go back and come up with a more reasonable price, and I mentioned to him that I had had exactly the same work done a couple years ago for $1000, and he came back, didn't flinch, gave me the second price which was 1300 dollars. And its, to me, reeked of the fact that he was trying to make some extra money, either for himself or the company and take advantage of me because he thought he had me over a barrel since he knew I had to pay for him to come out and do the diagnosis and he knew that another company's people were there trying to help get the problem sorted out, so he thought he had me over a barrel. And I really think that's unethical. Basically, what had happened was, a very long run of electrical line between house and the pole out at the street, and it, the other company, as well as Tingley, said the line—the run was too long. What happened was all we had to do, was get a reasonably large windstorm and it pulled the line right off the side of the house. This last, late winter was the third time it had happened over a period of about 10 years, and there's nothing complex about it.”

“I had an experience with them, let's put it that way. They were way overpriced for what they had to do. I'm on the second floor, and they had to run a wire to a subpanel that was about 15 feet, and I had already cut a hole to put the box in. They ran a wire and a circuit breaker on the panel. As far as the work, I would grade them an A. But they were way overpriced. It was a slam dunk thing, but I was caught in a bind, and I wanted to get the thing done. I think it was an average job that any guy in the trade could do. I would not recommend them.”

Review by
10/27/2016

“We had probably three or four miscellaneous small jobs at the house. They came by, and they provided a complimentary basic home inspection of electrical things. They worked on a few items right there. And they were out in a few hours. I would say they were very transparent and upfront about what we were going to do and what it was going to cost. I would grade them a B+. We were looking at one of the issues, and they didn't have an answer as to what it would take or cost, and they didn't follow up afterwards. They said they would follow up and they didn't.”

Review by
10/27/2016

“They've done a couple of things. I was moving, so they took down three chandeliers for my home. They charged me an excessive amount of money. I had a $25 credit, and I think they charged me an obscene amount of money over that. They were in and out of my house in two seconds. I could have done the job myself, it was so simple. I will never use them again. I would grade them a D. Their quality of work was average.”

Review by
10/27/2016

“We've been using Tingley for many years. Over the years, they've been taking care of all our electrical needs. One thing that I need to follow up with them on is, I needed some work done, and they didn't know how to do it. They were going to look into it. I use them because they are always responsive, and they show up and do what they say they are going to do. I would grade them an A.”

Review by
10/27/2016

“They did some minor electrical work for a television set that I had hung. I liked the two individuals that they sent over. They were very friendly. They did a good job articulating what they were going to do, and they actually changed the designed a little bit from what we had previously discussed, which made it easier on both parties and all the stakeholders involved with the project. They did it in a timely fashion; just professional and courteous. I would grade them an A+.”

“They do a good job. It was a rental property, so I can't remember what they did. They switched out a fan or something like that. I liked everything but the price. They were a little more expensive. I would grade them a B. I paid the bill and wasn't there. I haven't heard anything from the tenant.”

Review by

“We needed some old outlets rewired, which they did. They were honest and upfront. The guy was very capable. I can't remember his name, or I would give him a good recommendation. They are not cheap, but that is probably the case with every electrician. I would grade them an A-.”

Review by

“They’ve been out a couple of times, but the most recent time, they were installing a ceiling light and a chandelier. They have a very regimented price structure. I wasn't sure about that, but I feel pretty comfortable knowing the prices upfront. I would grade them an A+”

Review by
10/27/2016

“They did a bunch of little jobs. We needed work done, and we called them and gave them a list to fix the lights and broken things, and to make other things work. The young man wasn't patronizing. I would grade them an A. They were very good.”

A piece of the stove had burnt out, and we initially had a gentleman from another company come and say there wasn't a problem with the stove, it was the electrical line that was burnt out. And when the guy from Tingley came out, he found that it was the right electrical box; they were able to replace it, and we were back in business. I would grade them an A.
