It was a pleasure to deal with PLUMBELEC. The team is absolutely amazing. They display great professionalism and respond to queries within a couple of hours. I had to get a heater changeover done. They arranged everything within 24 hours minimising my stress. They are cost friendly and throughout the engagement their electrician and plumber kept me updated with the issues as they were identifying during the gas and electricity safety inspections while onsite . I had a great experience with team and highly recommend their services and friendly attitude.

I used Plumbelec to have an electrical and gas safety check for my house. The team was prompt with their arrival and they were extremely thorough with their inspection. After the inspection, I was given a break down of what was checked and worked on and I was reassured that everything was safe within my home. I highly recommend Plumbelec as they were easy to book, professional and very knowledgeable!
