Recommending Tom King Electrician : Punctual, friendly & helpful

Tom was recommended to me by a friend a few months back, and he fixed a light socket that was giving off a mild shock - he was on time, courteous and fairly priced - and the shocks are no more.

I've since had an issue with a vintage pendant light which keeps blowing the bulb. Tom was totally amenable to finding a time that could fit around work & childcare provision, and then when I needed to resched at 1 days notice he kindly offered a late appointment on the following day (today), he ran 10 mins late, and so he called to let me know. He's just stayed 10 mins & given me a whole load of advice, and hasn't charged for the call out - thanks Tom.

I called Tom on this recommendation and would now also recommend him and his work.
Polite, punctual and very reasonably priced. He found the fault with the smoke alarm and fixed it without a problem, rewired and organised a missing pendant light fitting and also a dodgy bathroom pull cord.
All round nice chap who did a good job for us. Thanks Tom.

Can also highly recommend Tom King. Called me back promptly and was able to fix my sockets 20 minutes later. Reasonable prices and outstanding service. Will definitely call him again for any electrical jobs needed. Thanks Tom.

I would also like to add a recommendation for Tom. My bathroom lights stopped working on Friday night, and I had guests staying for the weekend! I found the recommendation for Tom on this forum, text him at 8am Saturday morning and he was round by 9.30am to fix the lights. Saved my weekend, great service. Would def use again.
After all of these endorsements I too engaged Tom King for some electrical issues I had. He was quick to respond to messages, clear in communication, prompt in coming to look at things and getting them fixed and was reasonably priced too. No hesitation in recommending him, I wish all tradesmen were as good and easy to deal with (and flexible in when they can come around).

Another recommendation for Tom.
He was able to fit us in at very short Notice.
Reliable, professional and reasonably priced. I would have no hesitation in recommending Tom and we will definitely be using him again.
And us too. Tom is polite, on time, reasonable, nothing is too much trouble. Such a refreshing change... Couldn't recommend him more.
Tom came to fix a plug for our built in oven- he was available quickly, did a great job and was very friendly and helpful- pleasure to deal with and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending him!
Tom recently installed 3 pendant lights for us. He went out of his way to fit us in, and did an excellent job. We could not recommend him more.
Another recommendation for tom, I've used him on a number of jobs to fit fused spurs on behalf of customers for their newly installed burglar alarm systems and he is always on time, does a sound job and feedback from customers is always positive.
Would highly recommend Tom King. Had a faulty smoke alarm that was beeping continuously. Tom's answer was immediate and he came the same day, sorted it out quickly, is super friendly and asks reasonable price. what more could you want? Would definitely call on him again.
Found Tom King on this forum to install smoke alarms/heat sensors for a tenanted property and to perform an electrical installation safety check. Himself and colleague Andy came round punctually, installed smoke-related items efficiently and then performed thorough investigations for the safety check. As expected there was one failing - the replacement of a very out-of-date fuse box. They returned at an agreed time to perform this.

They were easy to communicate with, punctual and honest..
In fact I have already recommended them to a few other landlords who I know personally.

Im actually finding this forum far more useful than CheckaTrade or ratedpeople...smiling smiley
I also recommend Tom King. He fixed 3 broken light fittings for us. Price was reasonable, communication was great, and service was quick. Would use him again.
Found Tom via recommendation on the forum. We have recently had a new bathroom suite fitted and needed our old electric shower removed and a new one put in on the opposite side of the bathroom.
I must say he was very pleasant on our first meeting even with my two little ones asking him all the questions under the sun! The work was completed quickly and at a very nice price with the bonus of no mess! Very happy and will definitely be using again for the fitting of my new dimmer switches!

Can only concur. Rang Tom Friday, and he came around Saturday at the agreed time and hung a pendant light for me. No hesitation recommending him.
I can add to the above. I got Tom's details from this thread and he was exactly as others have described - quick to offer an appointment, efficient and kept in touch via text.
Excellent service from Tom, highly recommended again!
Highly recommend Tom! Reliable, efficient and trust worthy.

Do not use Milan listed on here. Told us we needed a new oven but in fact it was a cable problem that was causing our circuit to trip. Cost us a new oven (throwing away a perfectly good one), call out fees, etc sad smiley

If you need an electrician call Tom!
I'm a landlord and I used Tom King recently to replace a bathroom fan in a flat I rent out. I was so satisfied with his work and price that I'm going to use him again to do work at my own property.
Tom came to fix some switches for us last week.. he came on time, did the job and gave us some sound advice on another, which we'll be asking him to complete soon. Tom's a pleasure to have around, prompt, easy to contact and dies a great job!
Another recommendation for Tom! He fixed my bathroom light which hasn't been working for over a year! He came on time and was very thorough and very polite. Will definitely use again.
I used Tom last month to move an electric shower and decided I would like a spot light put in my garden! Called Tom and got a appointment straight away! Fitted the light, no mess no fuss! Such a polite and lovely lad would definitely recommend time and time again!
I highly recommend Tom and will definitely be using him in the future.
Polite, punctual and trust worthy- a great electrician find for the Dulwich area.
Really happy with the garden light he fitted today.
Tom has visited my property twice.
Fitted 2 complicated chandeliers and some other bits and pieces.
I have found Tom to be very polite, friendly and extremely helpful in sorting out the various issues. Very patient and reasonable rates.
I will definitely be using him again.
I'm loath to recommend Tom as he is such a find, I fear he will just get too busy!

I can only echo what everyone else has already said; charming, communicative, happy to give advice, and extremely competitively-priced. Tom is now my go-to electrician - Would definitely recommend all day long.
Tom is brilliant. He worked all day Saturday installing new sockets all over the house and I hardly knew he was there. Quick, clean, polite, efficient. Thanks Tom, if you're reading this! Another great find on the EDF.
I can definitely recommend Tom. I had some gremlins in my lighting causing all the electrics to trip and Tom was around in no time to resolve. Nothing but helpful, polite and very reasonably priced!
My 2nd recommendation for Tom.
Came to my property again at the weekend and installed more light fittings.
He was an absolute professional.
Very friendly, reliable and informative.
Great rates too.
I will definitely be using him again when I need my lighting system installed.
Another recommendation for Tom King. He popped round today to install a mains powered smoke alarm to comply with fire safety regulations. He was very responsive in his communications, turned up exactly when he said he would, did a tidy and conscientious job, and all for a very reasonable price.

Top man - thanks, Tom

Brilliant, knowledgable, goes the extra mile. An electrician you can trust to do a good job and not rip you off. I will be using Tom again.
