“The electrician that came to my home was honest and efficient. He checked out the issue I was having with a GFCI, and advised that there was no short in the circuit but that water was getting into one of the outside sockets and how to avoid that problem. I asked if he could install another GFCI for use with my outside power tools, and he did so in very little time. I was very happy that my neighbor told me about Hickerson Brothers and I would recommend them to anyone needing an electrician.”
“Were on time, professional appearance, had the problem diagnosed and repaired within an hour. Very polite the whole time they were there and fully explained to me the problem that I had. When I called in to make the appt. were also very courteous on the phone. Great overall service.”
“They saved me a lot of time and money. During their initial inspection, they discovered numerous electrical deficiencies which they took care of in a totally professional manner. However, they also identified other-than-electrical flaws that needed to be taken care of as well. Their work and recommendations were instrumental in helping to prepare my home to be placed on the market for sale. Recommend very highly.”
“They were here a long time ago but as I recall the experience was a positive one. I plan to call them again in the future.”
“Outstanding professional service. Prompt, courteous and thorough, both electricians and office staff. A pleasure to work with.”
“Hickerson Brothers were here right on time. Made recommendations to save us some money and installed the porch light in a timely and professional manner. We also recommended Hickerson Brothers to one of our neighbors their dangerous electrical panels. Hickerson Brothers placed ours years ago and did an excellent job.”
“Very happy with the work and communication.”

“Good work.”
“Hickerson Brothers is always the first place I turn for electrical services. Always do a professional job.”
“Wonderful job.”
“I thought they were very professional. They cleaned up after themselves, and the older gentleman who came to give me the quote was super nice. I added one extra piece of work when they came out to do the job, and they said 'This is not a problem. We can do it. This is how much it's going to cost—is that OK?' I was like, 'Absolutely.' They were fantastic. They installed a fan for the lights in the living room, they installed two bathroom lights, and they fixed my outside electrical outlet. They're an A.”
“I had a new air conditioner put in the house, and they upgraded all of my electrical systems and really did a fantastic job. When the inspector came and looked at it, he said that he knows that everything is going to be perfect with Hickerson Brothers. They were an A.”
“They're prompt and accurate, and they know what they're doing. When they tell me they're going to be here at a certain time, they're here. I had a recent experience where they came through. I was out of town, and my neighbor told me that my backup generator had been on for three days. I hit the wrong switch when I left the house. I contacted Brian at Hickerson Brothers, and he promptly came out and turned off the generator. I mailed him a set of keys, and he came into the house to make sure that there was nothing wrong regarding the electrical work in the house. He discovered that I had turned off the house power inadvertently, and that's what happened to the generator. Service like that, you can't beat. I found out about them because they installed my neighbor's backup generator; when I was looking to do mine, I asked my neighbor, and he recommended Hickerson Brothers. I've been using them ever since. I would give them an A++.”
“They were very prompt, very efficient, very knowledgeable, and very honest and truthful. I liked their mannerisms as well. They're just terrific. When I purchased a new stove, they had to come and fix the electrical wiring for me. Then, I had some wiring that had not been properly done at my house, and they had to redo that. The father of a friend of mine had done electric work with them, and that's how I found out about them. I would definitely have to give them an A+. They're outstanding. I would use them again, and I have recommended them to a friend of mine who has said she wants to call them.”
“They fixed the problem, and the electrician did good work. They worked on an electric switch, and they wired the house. I chose them because they were the ones that rewired things to begin with. I would recommend them, and I would give them an excellent grade—an A.”
“They did a lot of stuff around the house. I had them install a fan and electrical outlets, and I had them wire some things. I've had no problems with any of it so far. It has been perfect. They get an A.”
“They were punctual. They did the work in the time they said they were going to do it in, and they cleaned up after themselves, so all of that was good. They installed two overhead lights. I would use them again in the future.”
“They installed some extra outlets so that I could put my TV up higher on the wall. There have been no problems with their work so far.”
“I liked everything about Hickerson Brothers Electric. They came and did what they needed to do, they were pleasant, they were proficient, they were on time, and they did what they were supposed to do well—there was nothing not to like. They did work for my father, and they did something simple for me. Whatever they fixed, they fixed well; in fact, I was going to call them to fix something else. They deserve an A+.”
“I liked the fact that they were very up front about their pricing. I needed something to be done relatively quickly, and they were able to come out the next day and arrange their appointments around it. They added an electrical outlet for a softener. Someone else in my family recommended them, and I would recommend them, too—they're definitely an A+.”
“They were really professional and easy to work with. We had a company install a TV, but that company messed up the wiring, so we had Hickerson Brothers come in and fix it for us. I haven't had any issues since the work was done. I looked in Best Pick Reports, and that's how I found them. I'd give them an A+. They were really good and really nice.”
“They did exactly what they said they were going to do. They had to install all the wiring in a building for me. I would use them again. I found out about the company through word of mouth. They get an A+.”
“They put in a backup circuit that I could use for a generator to keep the heat on in case the power went out. They did a great job. I would give them an A+.”
“The people from Hickerson Brothers Electric were friendly and clean. They came when they were supposed to. They put shoe coverings on when they came in, and they cleaned up after themselves. They installed a ceiling fan. They had done something small for us years before when we moved here, too, and I would recommend them. I would give them an A grade.”
“They're very professional. They hung some new lights in our family room. I'd give them an A.”
“They were very good and very professional. They're smart guys, and they know what they're doing—they're no-nonsense. I had some electrical problems in the box, and there were some outside outlets that they fixed. They did a good job—no fooling around. I chose them because my friends recommended them. They're an A. These two guys knew what they were doing. They weren't messing around. They came in, they took their time, and they did exactly what they should've done. They were good.”
“I was pleased with their service. They did a good job. They get an A.”
“They were pretty good. I had a bad breaker, and they came on time and fixed the problem. My insurance company recommended that I call them, and I would recommend them. An A grade is good for them.”
“They came when they said they would, did what they said they would do, and charged what they said they would in a prompt and reliable manner. They had to repair an outdoor standing lamp. It was my first time using them, and I would use them again. I chose them because they were local. They get an A rating.”
“I liked the responsiveness and courtesy of Brian, the person we called. He got the job done. It started when we saw that the circuit was out in the kitchen, and it turned out that a sump pump below was blowing the circuit, so he fixed that. He took over from me when I couldn't fix it. Everything about their work was a very pleasant experience. They get an A.”
“They did an emergency call for me. They responded quickly and well. They took care of the problem, and we're very pleased. I was not a customer of theirs already, but I really needed their help. They were referred to me by somebody else—I called a friend of mine who had done electrical work, and he said that it was a problem that he should not tackle; he told me that I would be better off calling Hickerson Brothers, and so I did. I'd go with an A grade for them.”
“They did the job—they had to fix my light post. They were nice, they got there on time, and they always do good work. I used them in the past, and I would use them again. I would give them an A rating.”
“Their work was pretty efficient, and the guy who came was very efficient and friendly. It worked out really well. They worked on an outlet. I'd use them again; it was good service. My in-laws told me about them. An A grade is fine for them.”
“They had to come and install an overhead fan. They were very prompt, they came when they said they were going to come, and they were very careful working in the house—they wore shoe covers so they wouldn't damage the hardwood floors and stuff like that. They're a very good company. I would give them an A.”
“They came very quickly, and the electrician was very nice. We had lights in the house that weren't working. I hadn't used them before, but I would use them again. They deserve an A rating.”
“They're honest and reliable. I called them because our outlets blew out. I would use them again. I would give them an A grade.”
“They were available for emergency service—they fixed the electrical main. I had not used them in the past, but I would use them in the future. I would give them an A.”
“They were very courteous, and they showed up on time. The electrician checked a couple of things, like an outlet or two; he spent time with me and helped me understand what he was doing. I would use them again. I'd give them an A grade.”
“They were professional and prompt. I called them out when one of my circuits was down. I'd used them once prior, and I would use them for any electrical needs—they have a very good reputation in this area. They get an A grade.”
“I liked the man who came out—he was one of the owners. He was very friendly and helpful. They had to investigate in order to determine why my fridge shut off, and they were able to find out that there was some kind of plug that hadn't really been connected properly by the previous owner, so they fixed it. I'd give them an A.”
“They were on time, and they did exactly what they said they were going to do. They installed new lights in a kitchen for me. I would use their company again. I found out about them through Best Pick Reports, and they get an A grade from me.”
“They were prompt—I called, and they were here within a few hours. They diagnosed the problem quickly, fixed it, and were out of here. The electricity in half of my house wasn't working, and they identified an outlet that had disconnected, so they got in there and fixed it. I'd give them an A.”
“They were quick. They diagnosed the problem and fixed it pretty quickly. A couple of outlets had gone bad, so they had to replace things. I'd use them again. I heard about them in Best Pick Reports. They were an A-grade business—it was good.”
“They gave me a specific time when they would be here, so I didn't have to hang around and wait all day long—I didn't have a four- or five-hour window. I was given a really good estimate of time, and they were punctual. He got the job done in an hour, and it was great. They installed a lightning rod since we have lightning strikes around here. My neighbor did the research on Hickerson Brothers, and I made the decision to go for it. Their work was fine. I'd give them an A.”
“They helped troubleshoot and repair a yard light that would not go on. None of the outlets worked, and that was also fixed—they did that very well. We were satisfied with the work. We would rate them as an A.”
“I had a smoking light emergency, and they came right away within a couple of hours—I couldn't believe it. I'd never worked with them before, but I'm going to have them do some other work that I need done. They get an A grade.”
“They were good. I have aluminum wiring in my house, and they did something to make it work better with the outlets. I would grade them as an A.”

“They redid our electrical panel and did a safety check on the whole house. We have no complaints about Hickerson Brothers Electric. We would rate their work as an A.”
“I had them do a lot of work for us, and they get an A on everything.”
“Hickerson Brothers Electric gets an A grade from me.”
“Everything they did was OK. It was an A-rate job.”
“They replaced an outside second-floor light, they figured out why one of the circuits was blown, and they installed an LED light over the sink. I would say they get an A- grade.”
“Hickerson Brothers was just terrific. They were very prompt, efficient, knowledgeable, honest, and truthful. When I purchased a new stove, they came and fixed the wiring for me. Then, they redid some wiring at my house. I have recommended them to a friend of mine, and I would definitely give them an A+. They're outstanding.”
“They were fantastic. They were very professional, and the gentleman who came out to give the quote was super nice. They installed a fan and two bathroom lights, and they fixed my outside outlet. They deserve an A.”
“I had a new air conditioner put in, and they upgraded all of my electrical systems and really did a fantastic job. When the inspector came and looked at it, he said that he knows everything is going to be perfect with Hickerson Brothers' work.”
“The work they did for me was 100% good. It was all great. They did a good job, and they impressed me. I'm satisfied, and I will call for them again if I have to. They fixed the circuit breaker and a dryer. This was the first time we used this company, and I'd give them an A++.”
“They did a good job, and we speak highly of them. If we were in the position to have more work done, we would probably call them. It was the first time we used them. I thought they were thorough, they did their job well, and they told us of other things we need to consider. I would highly recommend them—they are an A+.”
“The last time I had one of their gentlemen come, he was absolutely outstanding. He went above and beyond what he needed to do. I can't say anything bad about it. He fixed a faulty outlet, and they wound up fixing a GFI outlet that wasn't working correctly. I would rate them as an A+.”
“They were wonderful. I like everything about them. We've worked with the Hickerson guys for years, and they do a really good job. They're very professional, and they go above and beyond expectations. The quality of the work was good, very good. I have recommended them to others. I think we've been using them for about 11 years since we've been out here. I'd give them an A+.”
“I found them to be very helpful. They informed me of what they were going to do and how they were going to do it. They were very easy to work with. They installed a new lamppost up front, and it has been working perfectly since they did it, so I'd give them an A+.”
“I would highly recommend Hickerson Brothers Electric Service. They're very good at what they do, they are very neat and personal, and they do a great job. I'm very pleased with them. I used them again this year. When they came out, they had to put a new light switch in for me that had a relay on it. They get an A+ grade from me. I don't have anybody else. I have used other companies before, but since I used Alan Hickerson, I don't use anybody else. Plus, I can have the same technician when I call.”
“I liked Hickerson Brothers Electric Service's working relationship with the customer, their professionalism throughout the work of the project, and their completion of the project. They were all in all highly successful. They did both a repair and installation. Since the work has been completed, everything has held up very well. I liked their response when I called them. I would absolutely use them again in the future, if needed. There is nothing that they need to improve on. I would give them an A+ rating.”
“They came out the same day I called them. They put the little shoe protectors on so they wouldn't track dirt or anything inside. They were very courteous, they explained things so I could understand them, and they fixed the problem. The office staff was courteous, too. I've used them before. They've done a great job, and I will continue to use them. There was a storm, and they had to check it out. As a matter of fact, we thought that maybe a circuit had been blown that needed to be replaced, but it was something else. They came the next day—I love when they do that. I'd give them an A.”
“Hickerson Brothers has done work for us a couple of times. They have very good service. They're professional. They've always done an outstanding job. They don't seem to upsell you—they're honest. The most recent thing they've done for me was repairing a light fixture and installing a new light. I'd give them an A+.”
“Hickerson Brothers' service was great. I would give them a five-star rating. They were punctual. They even designed some stuff for us, and it's worked great. I'd give them whatever the highest good grade is, an A+.”
“It was really good. The job was done about a year ago. They had to come in, and they had to do some wiring to electrical sockets. They had to install a complete new circuit breaker panel. They put a surge protector on the unit, so if there were lightning or something it would shut off, rather than create a fire. They put in an outlet for a freezer for me. Then something happened, and I had to call them. They came back the next morning without any charge or any hesitation at all. I heard about them in Best Pick Reports. I would use them again, and I would highly recommend them to neighbors—A+.”
“They showed up on time, and they did a good job. They didn't leave the house messy or anything. We have a rental property, and they added a switch in the one room and repaired a switch in the dining room. The quality of the work was extremely good, so I'd give them an A.”
“The first thing that I liked and was impressed with was that they responded and understood my problem immediately. This was the first time we using this company, although I had interviewed one of the reps about a year or so earlier about a different matter. They replaced a control panel for me. After they completed the work, they did not have to come back out for anything. I did not have to clean up behind them, and that was another thing that impressed me—they took care of everything themselves. They're an A-grade company.”
“They were extremely timely—I called them in the morning, and they had an electrician here by one o'clock. I thought the quality of the work was very good. They had to replace a light fixture for me up in the ceiling, called a cove light. I would definitely give them an A.”
“Hickerson Brothers Electric did great. What I liked about the company was the service and the job. The job was very well done. The guy that came and did the work was outstanding. He cared about the problem, cared about us, and got everything done. They replaced some receptacles, they did some light switches, and they did some other light things—they did all-around electric stuff that I can't do.”
“Hickerson Brothers Electric did some work, and it was fine. They did something in my garage on a receptacle or something. I think they did some other stuff for me, too—they fixed a light in my basement and an electrical wires problem that we couldn't figure out. They were simple jobs, and they did fine. I would recommend them. I understand that they have a pretty good reputation, and there is nothing I can recall that they needed to improve on. I would give them an A rating.”
“Hickerson Brothers Electric came on a Saturday—they came when they said they were going to come, and they gave us good advice. They did some electrical work. The work has held up really good. The workers were competent and knowledgeable. Their cleanup was perfect—I'd give them an A rating.”
“They installed an outlet for me. Hickerson Brothers Electric was responsive—they came when they said they would and did great work. I would use them again.”
“I use Hickerson Brothers for electrical work. I would give them an A+ rating on everything, and I would absolutely call them again in the future.”
“They fixed the problem, and that's it. I had some outlets blown out in my house. I can't remember exactly what they did, but I think they had to toy around with some of the switches in the garage. I haven't had any problems since. I think it was the first time I used them.”
