I needed a new consumer unit and Farthing came highly recommended. It’s easy to see why James gets so many recommendations; came out promptly and quoted, the price was competitive and fair, completed the job with high standard of workmanship and was a pleasure to deal with. James also helped to fit new lights and I could not be happier. Would use Farthing again and again in the future.

Andy Hughes – Solihull

James was outstanding from initial quote to coming back the next week to complete the work (replacement of smoke detectors and some lights in bathroom). Very prompt, professional, reliable and keeps work space clean, both during and at the end of the job. Highly recommend Farthing Electrical.

Ben Thomas – Dickens Heath

I needed an outside light fitting within 24 hours. I phoned various electricians and not only was James the most reasonable with his quote, he was polite, knowledgable and willing to speak at length on the phone giving advice and explaining the process. The very next day James attended my property and completed the job faultlessly, leaving no mess and spent time (in the rain!) explaining everything and double checking everything before leaving. Great job James – I will be recommending others to you!

Chris Turner – Solihull

Wanted to leave a review regarding James’ work at our house. Great communication beforehand and fabulous work for a competitive price. We are very pleased and would use Farthing Electrical again in the future!

Marianne Quantrill – Solihull

I’m so glad I found James using the Monkspath & Hillfield group- it’s no wonder why people recommend him. James has been so easy to communicate with, is really reliable and really hard working, and has done an excellent job! We are using him again for more work and would definitely recommend him for any electrical work!
