    "Never get Paul Cotter Electrical to do your work. In the end, we had to contact ECANZ and get them in.

    They put electrical wiring in out lounge and dining room all connected to the same ring mains. Not Best Practice for the amount of power outlets.

    The ducted heating system and heat transfer system. Well Paul went on holiday and no one else at the company could understand or install the system correctly.

    The heat transfer system still is not working correctly and they have replaced the 1.5 Amp fuses with 3.0 Amp fuses and they have blown.

    ECANZ had an issue with the fact that they had moved the earth point and did not get it certified properly.

    ECANZ opend the meter pannel and found an unsafe wire. They also found other wires that were not properly screwed to the meter panel.

    The ducted heating outlets, well most of them have left holes in the ceiling and now I have to repari them. Paul Collter Electical did not care about the job they were doing.

    In short, DO NOT USE this company, you will regret it.

    Paul Cotter Electrical was given to the end of this week by ECANZ (23/03/2018) to get in contact with me to resolve the issues. They have not done this.

    Again, DO NOT USE this company.

    "the invoiced amount exceeded the quote by over a thousand dollars, the invoice was also dated two weeks before the work was even carried out. The tradesmen left windows open, smoked in my house and gouged my lino. Paul has until today refused to acknowledge my complaints - today five weeks after the work was carried out I finally (after asking three times) get a legible copy of the COC - but with no testing comments.

    Highly disappointed"

    "Paul's company was employed by a builder.

    the work has been found to be substandard, this maybe due to the second year apprentice and a laborer doing all the work without the supervision of a fully qualified electrician.
    The COC was then signed off as a normal COC and not an apprentice COC without the electrician who signed off the COC being onsite.
    There has been many breaches of the electrical regulations voiding my insurance. This I would not have known unless I investigated.
    This company cuts corners and breaches the electrical regulations without batting an eyelid.

    Stay clear!!!

    "Wasn't on time, then didn't show at all when he said he would then sent a couple of juniors along to do the work. They got the job wrong and walked mud through the house. After I complained he then sent other tradesmen (from another firm I believe) to rectify, "

    "The jobwas done to an excellent standard, with Paul Cotter good to deal with. The Icing on the cake was the high quality and attention to detail given by Luke - even if our kids did give him chicken pox!!! We would highly recommend Luke and Paul Cotter Ltd."

    "Right from word go, we knew we were onto a good thing with Paul and Luke (employee). Luke did the majority of work on our house under the direction of Paul to such a superb standard. As the job progressed and we thought of further things, along with Luke pointing out changes to our plan, Luke happily got on with it, at times working long hours to meet deadlines for other subcontractors. All work was completed when required and more trips were necessary due to delays with the builders. Since then we have had another electrical issue which Paul had arranged for Luke to be back there within a day to sort through and test various things. Always we were kept informed of what was happening and how things were to progress. I would not hesitate to recommend either Paul or Luke in the future for any electrical work. They are just delightful to deal with!"
