“Those people were on time. They came with the lowest price, and it was very high quality. Also, when they called, they talked to me about everything they were doing. I'd give them an A.”

Review by

“I think they fixed a couple of outlets for me. It was easy to set up. They were prompt on their appointments, and they got it taken care of. Overall, I'd give them an A.”

Review by
02/24/2018

“They came and did the work that I asked them to do. The technician was friendly. He was professional. He explained a lot about the work that he was going to do before he did it. Noteworthy was that he presented me with a lot of the documentation on the permits that they had, before he did the work, which I thought was nice. I would grade the overall experience with an A.”

Review by
02/24/2018

“They troubleshot an item for me where we had lost power in part of our great room, and they were able to find the cause and correct it. It was positive because they were prompt. They came out; they certainly seem to know what they were doing and handled the project very quickly. I would grade the overall experience with an A. Recommendation—I thought the price was high.”

Review by

“They put in a transformer. They were customer service oriented; eye contact. Again, they had eye contact and were very nice. There is always room for improvement, because they are not perfect. I would grade them a B.”

Review by

“They did a minor electrical job for me. It was positive, because they were personable and knowledgeable. Noteworthy was that the owner had good customer service. I would grade the overall experience with an A.”

Review by

“They did a panel inspection. The last time they came out and did some work, they wired my whole house. I liked the employees, and I liked the quality of work. I would grade the overall experience with an A.”

Review by
02/23/2018

“I had an electrical switch, one of those automatic timers installed for me. They seemed friendly, very knowledgeable. They were being somewhat honest saying their expertise wasn't needed and I had done it the right way. I appreciated that. I would give them an A overall.”

“We use to work with a different electrician, and once we had a major emergency. We had to change our electrical panel. We had such a good experience with Magothy that we only hire them now. They are really excellent; they came and changed the panel for us—did a fabulous job. We have several rental houses, and we had issues with other houses and even with our own house we only go to Magothy. They are really good. They are really excellent electricians. They do their job very well; they know what they are doing. The job—the previous, other electrician—he was OK; he just used to take a long time to get things done. But not Magothy; they send as many people as necessary. They are all very experienced. They give you the estimate right away and start work. We are really, truly, very satisfied customers, and I am a picky person. Not everybody gets the same rate, but from them I can say surely that they are excellent. I would grade them an A. I would very likely recommend them.”

“I would never use them again. They came out to give me an estimate and were supposed to fix an exit sign in my store, and they didn't do anything. They didn't open the box to see what it takes, and told me that it would take $800 or $900. I ended up having it done for $200, and they didn't do anything, but said they needed to replace everything—when all it needed was batteries. And then they charged me for just coming out for that too. That was it. I would grade them a D. They were on time.”

“Last year they did some work, and they were fine. They did some outside work and a fence. I would grade the overall experience with an A.”

“This company responded to a request to have our home evaluated after a lightning strike that took out a transformer on our property. We experienced some electrical failures to appliances in the house. The staff came at the time scheduled, showed professionalism in the questions asked about the problems we experienced. Their courteous manner to relieve any anxiety we had to the safety of our home was greatly appreciated. The staff located and evaluated the problem areas, and recommended options.”

“They came to install an outlet for me, but I was not home, my wife was. The price was a little bit pricey. I would grade them a B. The quality of work was good.”

Review by

“So far it's OK. They installed a fan. There were no problems. I would recommend them to a friend.”

“They did a great job.”

Review by

“They replaced and moved an outlet. We've worked with them before, they come when they say they are going to come. I would grade them an A+.”

Review by
10/03/2016

“They were professional, they knew their stuff. They helped design the solution instead of doing only what I asked. They were flexible. They did lighting and ceiling fan installation. I would grade them an A+, they were really good. I have already recommended them to a friend.”

Review by
10/03/2016

“They were not overly pandering to the fact that I'm in the service. They did appreciate certain things and they didn't charge me. I don't care if they would have charged me, so it's not about that, but they didn't charge me the standard deductible for even showing up and doing the assessment. It was genuine, so I appreciated their kind of nature. It was overwhelming, they were nice, and I think they went above the normal. I couldn't say that about all their crews because I only dealt with two. Hopefully I'm not giving a bad company a great review. The team they did send out was great. They didn't do any work for me, they analyzed the work that I called them about, and gave me a fair quote. They told me what they would do, wouldn't do, and how long it would take. So the things that some people might not always tell you, especially the duration of the project, they didn't sugar coat any of it. So it was some sand and sealing work, pretty basic stuff. So they gave me an assessment and a quote. There were zero problems and I would recommend them.”

Review by
10/03/2016

“I've used them a couple of times. They were hanging a light fixture in a master closet, a light fixture in dining room, and then a check on the front step exterior lights. They are very easy to schedule, very polite and professional. They’re upfront with pricing and explain what they are going to do, why, and how. They make sure that your informed about what you are going to do before you do it. It was A+ work. I have recommended them.”

Review by
10/03/2016

“Overall, they were good. I was doing some remodeling and they came in to do some rewiring of some outlets for the dishwasher. So it wasn't anything major, it was some rewiring of the kitchen. I would grade them an B+. The biggest problem I have was that they were ridiculously expensive. There were a couple of things that could have been probably placed better and thought out a little bit more. The quality of what they actually did was good; I think they could have put a little more thought into how things were laid out. They knew what they were doing and did a good job. The electrician himself I thought the work was good. I thought the price was ridiculous for the amount of work that needed to be done. They have a methodology where they charge by the job and not by hour. So I think for the three or four things that needed to be done that was really overpriced.”

Review by
10/03/2016

“I like their quick response. It was a Saturday and a fire started in an electrical box, and we didn't know it. They came in a couple of hours and fixed the plumbing and the electricity, which we really needed. They took care of it really fast and really prompt. We didn't know they could come out on a Saturday because this wasn't planned. After they got the electricity back on, we got the whole house rewired by them and they did a fantastic job. I would grade them an A+. I liked how they cleaned up, before they came in the house, they put the little footsies on and make sure they didn't get anything on the floor. They cleaned up after themselves and did a great job.”

Review by
10/03/2016

“The whole experience, from getting them out there to the work that they did and when they left, it was all exceptional. I had to outfit an entire bathroom with new electrical and lights. I would grade them an A+, and I have recommended them.”

Review by
10/03/2016

“They were very informative about a lot of things. The person that I scheduled with was very nice and very easy to work with. They did an assessment of some major electrical work on a renovation. I would grade them an A. It was good.”

Review by

“They did some basic switch stuff. I would grade them an A+. It was actually the owner that came out and did the work on a weekend himself, which showed me a lot.”

Review by

Review by

“The work was fine but their prices were high. They did electrical work for me, they put four lights on a switch, and trouble shot a loose wire. I would grade them a B for quality of work. The cost was so high.”

Review by
09/29/2016

“They installed lights and electrical circuits in my garage. I would grade them a B. They were good on all that, but they were a little high. They did good work. I would likely recommend them.”

“They were checking a sewer line and the electricity going to the sewer. They were very honest and upfront about what they charged, and the people were polite. I would give them an A grade.”

Review by
09/29/2016

“They did electrical wiring and overhead lighting. He was very honest and direct and pretty fair in price it was more than I expected but I had never dealt with an electrician before and wonder why I kept having to replace LEG light bulb. I would grade them an A+.”

Review by
09/29/2016

“They installed a couple of ceiling fans. I would grade them an A+. They got it done pretty quickly, the fans worked perfectly. They explained the fans, some of the speeds that I need to avoid, they explained the product pretty well, and got it done quickly.”

Review by
09/29/2016

“They made sure that the electrical was all squared away and up to code when we moved into our house. I would grade them an A. They were timely and got the job done when we asked them to come. We didn't have any problems with them, so the job was effortless.”

Review by
09/29/2016

“We are finishing our downstairs basement and they pretty much did all the electrical down there. They have to come back and finish, but it's almost 99.99 percent finished. They were personable, knowledgeable, and professional. I would grade them an A.”

Review by
09/29/2016

“It was fine, they figured out why my bathroom fan wasn't working. I would grade them an A. I also didn't like the price; I think they charged too much for what they did. I liked them a lot, but it would depend on the type of work because of the price.”

Review by
09/29/2016

“They did some work in a basement remodel and at a commercial spot I have. They're A+. They did what they said they were going to do. The work was professionally done, on time, and at the price that they said they were going to do it. No complaints.”

Review by
09/29/2016

“They've done a very good job. It had something to do with our circuit breaker, our air conditioner kept triggering something to go off. They were very responsive; they sent me an email of the electrician that was coming out. They deserve an A.”

Review by
09/29/2016

“It was fine, I had an exceptionally positive experience with them. We had Pure put into the backyard that needed electrical service connected to it. I would grade them an A+. They were extraordinarily professional from the first phone call to the follow up surveys. The people that came to the house were well dressed and well spoken. They were quite knowledgeable in what they were doing. They kept me advised about the process they were going through. I can't say enough about the quality of the personnel that was coming through the house. I have had experience with other electrical companies and I haven't been this pleased.”

Review by
09/29/2016

“I have split level house and the downstairs is partially underground, and there is a pump in the bathroom that pumps the shower and toilet into our septic tank. The pump went out and they replaced it. They replaced the circulation fan in our upstairs bathroom and I was happy with the work. They were very pleasant, but there was a delay on installing the fan because they couldn't get it. They did keep me abreast of what was going on, and the quality of their workmanship was great. Their people were great. I would grade them an A.”

Review by
09/29/2016

“I was very pleased with them. They put in a new exterior hook up from the electrical company to the house. I would grade them an A. I especially liked their receptionist because she kept me informed because this was a multilevel process. The county gets involved and then the electric company gets involved. So there were several different appointments. She was wonderful about keeping me informed and reminding me when I had to be there.”

Review by
09/29/2016

“I had him do an inspection for something and he ended up replacing some of the stuff in the fuse box and some other things. I would give them an A+ grade. I liked that they got back to me quickly and got somebody out there quickly. The work was done the same day as the inspection and the guy went above and beyond offering to help with other things around the house for anything else that I needed.”

Review by
09/29/2016

“I have a light that going to the basement and is not turned on and it goes off. It has two switches one of the top and one at the bottom of the stairs and I called him about for that purpose. Neither of them make the light go on. The sump pump in the kitchen was going down too, and to fix that he would have to put holes. I said no I just want you to fix the lights that I called you for. He charged me $38 two days later that did not turn on again. It's off again. I called him up and said, 'that it's off again.' And he said 'in order of fix that, I have to fix that other thing.' I said, 'no' he said 'I might have to do some other things in your house, they might all be connected.' I said, no I do not like you to do that. I just want you to fix that.' He said that I was not being fair with him because in order to do a different job. We were going back and forth. So he gave me a refund, so I told him that I'm going to report back to the Better Business Bureau and let them decide. That was the last conversation I had with them. I spoke with a friend of mine, and he said maybe you were overcharged. And they said maybe take everything out and that's what I did and it's been working every since. I did not report him my son advised me against it.”

Review by
09/29/2016

“It was quite a bit expensive. In the future, I would think twice before using them. The work was alright, they changed the power outlet in the wall. The service was good; the only thing was that it was expensive for the kind of service that they did. They came on time and fixed the issue. Customer service was good and I still have the warranty for service.”

Review by
09/29/2016

“They opened my electrical panel. They fixed some wiring in my box, it was a minor fix. They did a good job and they responded quickly. I would grade them an A+. I thought they were very professional. They responded in a timely manner and let me know exactly what they were doing. I would grade them A. I'm giving them best all around, they were very good.”

Review by
09/29/2016

“They were great. They installed five ceiling fans. They're an A+ company. They called, said we have this issue going on and what we can do. They had an emergency call happen, so I didn't sit around waiting because I knew what was going on, so that was good. I have already recommended them.”

Review by
09/29/2016

“I kept having a circuit that was blowing, I kept tripping a fuse in there, and they ran that problem down. It took them a while, but they were diligent about it, they did a good job, and they fixed it. I would grade them an A. Everything was off the scale. I would recommend them.”

Review by
09/28/2016

“They put a ceiling fan in one of my rooms; they had to run the electricity off of a light switch. I liked that he was very respectful of my home. They were pretty much on time, he got caught up at another job but they called me ahead of time. ‘He is trying to finish another job, but they will be there.’ I would grade them an A+. It was a little bit expensive, but it was worth it because of the quality but they could come down on their price. I have already recommended them to everybody in the neighborhood.”

Review by
