"Please thank your fellow electricians for an excellent job. I just love it when tradesmen do a good job the first time around. Thanks to you also for training them so well!"

Wendy Anderson, Macarthur ACT

"Quick response to my query Detailed quote. Quick work. Cost of work was priced reasonably. Pleasant team Flexible with times. Overall, very happy with the work, time taken to complete the job, and the overall cost. Great team and friendly. A refreshing change to have great customer service from you after I've had so many bad ones with various tradies over the last few years! Well Done Laser Electrical - you stand out from the others on this and other areas as well. Thanks so much Andrew, Paul and James :)"

Virginia, Hackett ACT

"I can highly recommend O'Briens Electrical Hume! I have used Andrew and Scott for many, many years (must be getting close to two decades??) starting when they were ASN, then Laser and now O'Briens. I first engaged them for my workplace then privately for many at home jobs. Both my workplace and I continue to engage them as although they have grown in size, they are honest, reliable, very knowledgeable in all aspects of their trade and take the time to analyse every job, make recommendations, keep you informed and last but never least, clean up after themselves. Any occasional hiccup (my work building is around 60 years old with multiple renovations and switchboards - not an easy building to keep utilities running smoothly!) they have always been brilliant and are back straight away to sort (always with success!). Scott and Ryan have just yesterday installed a heat extraction unit in our top floor bedroom - great job. I have done and will continue to recommend them - these guys are great and the office staff friendly and helpful also."

"Want to let you know the tradesman and apprentice worked very hard when they were doing work at my house. They were really nice young men and I think they have done a very good job on everything I had done."

Kaye, NSW

"We want to thank you and staff for the excellent work undertaken at our house. Done on time and very professional. We like to congratulate Tara and her staff of their efficiency and professionalism. Tara is excellent in managing and organising the technicians with finishing the work ahead of time. Well done guys."

Angelo, ACT

"Ashleigh and Hayden are great examples of business people who take care of their customers. Their service was prompt and they made sure that they understood what I needed and made that happen. Hayden's work was neat and tidy so much so that he impressed the neighbor to hire him for a job at their place. Thanks for the good job. I highly recommend this O'Brien team."

Michael, ACT

"We recently purchased a Tesla Model 3 and needed an electrical professionally Tesla-accredited company to instal the charger at home. The O’Brien team were excellent - prompt and professional - they did such a great job, that I also engaged them to instal a further Tesla charger at our beach shack at Malua Bay - this was a more difficult instal and involved external cabling - once again, an outstanding, thoroughly professional job by the O’Brien team. Very happy customer here."

Greg, ACT

"Thank you very much, the boys were v efficient and did a great job"

Brendan, ACT

"Please pass on my note of appreciation to Ben for coming early this morning to install the new power outlet. Quite a switched on and pleasant young man. Very professional job, too!"

Tony, ACT

"We will be back in touch, we are very, very happy with your service."

Sarah, ACT

Thank you for the prompt, excellent service – from your office staff and the tradesman who came to assist me today.

Sheena, ACT

We’ve always been very happy with the highly skilled tradesman that have worked at our houses - they are always respectful helpful and hardworking. The fact that they seem to be all pleasant and friendly makes it especially easy and engaging ensuring solid communication on the job. So thank you. We’ll be booking some more work in soon - there’s always something :)

Alex, ACT

The team were professional, very helpful and did a great job.

Patrick, ACT

Many thanks for the prompt service. The job was done perfectly and professionally - I’m very happy with the results.

Liam, ACT

Once again, a speedy reply and prompt action. Over the last few months I have been trying to find contractors to do various jobs in our home with mixed results, but O'Briens stand head and shoulders above them all.... O'Briens put them to shame when it comes to service.

Tony, ACT

The guys were fantastic. I was really impressed and so happy with the work.

Susan, ACT

When ringing O'Brien Electrical I spoke to lovely Ashleigh, who was so understanding and helpful and she sent me Max to do my repair. He was respectful and very obliging. Great service from this company and I would highly recommend them to anyone seeking great electrical service

Helen, ACT

These guys are absolutely fantastic. Tara went above and beyond. The best service from a company we have ever had

Scott, ACT

Another great job from the folks at O'Brien Electrical. Scott and Andrew have been doing our electrical work for almost 20 years now and have always done a great job. They are competitive when it comes to pricing but even more important; they are professional, timely, and a pleasure to deal with. A shout out to Max and Sam who did the work on this latest job and did a great job, as well as Tara who organized it behind the scenes. Highly recommended.

Julian, ACT

I called on O'Brien's to do some cabling work to improve my Internet speed. I couldn't fault them - friendly to deal with and very professional. I highly recommend them and will be using them again.

Simone, ACT

What an awesome business to deal with! Hayden and Ryan helped us out on New Years Day when we needed generators connected in an area affected by the bushfires. They travelled 5 hrs each way and worked through the middle of the night. Great attitude and fantastic communication. Can't recommend this team highly enough
