    "Dean was a pleasure to deal with. He arrived on time to do some small jobs at my house. He was pleasant and friendly, explained what he was doing, did the work in good time, and was really tidy. I definitely recommend Dean if you need an electrician."

    "Richard did a fantastic job at replacing my old spotlights with LED lights. He also had to fit 3 pendant lights above the kitchen bench, these weren't easy to fit as they were replacing old lights."

    "Dean has completed a number of jobs for us since we purchased the property four years ago. He has a calm and friendly disposition and is very accommodating in fitting us in. The work is to a very high standard, and we have even left it up to Dean to purchase new LED lights for us, as well as new panel heaters for the bedrooms. In fact, for our last job, I wasn't able to be on site, so left a key for Dean. If it wasn't for the fact that I knew the job had been completed, I wouldn't have known he was here - everything was left just as it was. Thanks Dean!

    We have no hesitation recommending Dean to anyone looking for an electrician.

    "Dean and James did a great job with multiple tasks including switching halogen downlights to LED, installing new powerpoints and dimmers. End result was great and the job was done in a neat and timely manor. Super friendly guys too."

    "Dean came with an apprentice (James) - which is great to see that the next generation is being well trained :)
    Thanks to Dean's helpfulness and understanding of trade requirements!! :) Important to give experience to younger people, it helps them to grow ...
    Both of them were really friendly, respectful, and very nice people.
    Dean is incredibly helpful, calm, gentle and a pleasant person to deal with... and a problem solver... he returned to help sort out a the outside sensor light and that was very helpful and sorted, which was a touchy job to do... and removed our spiky "Lord of the Rings" or Dungeon type fixtures, installing LED which has brought more light and lightness in the home... (which was needed aside from being better when storm water has hit the roof lately... Dean works safely and tidily :)

    I am dealing with a stroke survivor, and frankly having Dean being so accommodating removed the stress and solved problems, and made our day !! :)

    Fair charges and will definitely call him again on other jobs.

    Good personal communication skills...

    Thank you Dean and James.

    Surely other people will enjoy his work.

    "Dean did an excellent job wiring up our bathroom and happily took on the extra challenges we threw at him, including Iconic LED back lit switches, electric skylights and an additional LED strip. He had good lighting recommendations and communicated clearly throughout the project. I'm happy to rate Dean the full 100%."

    "Dean has completed a few different jobs from me over the past few years, and is always very professional and thorough with the actual job at hand, while also being a kind and gentle person to deal with.

    On this latest occasion, I detected a burning smell coming from my circuit board and was worried my house would catch fire (all on the day before I was going overseas) - it was a very scary moment for me. I contacted Dean and he knew what the problem likely was, assured me I was safe, and was at my home shortly thereafter. He promptly replaced the faulty mains switch, and the problem was solved. I can't explain how responsive, professional, and assuring he was - I'll always call Dean first if I need anything electrical done in Wellington!"

    "Dean has been our principal electrician for about a year as we have moved from some dodgy 1930's wiring to bring our house up to modern code.
    He has been awesome from start to finish; dealing with trying to work in some cramped, dusty and awkward spaces, he's just got on with it and got it done. I'd recommend him to anyone.

    "We found Dean from Silver Fern Electrical very accommodating to our needs. I was impressed that he was able to fit us in near the end of the day after our return from work.
    He was friendly and informative and he provided prompt,efficient and competitively priced service in remedying our lighting issues, which were a faulty dimmer switch in our bedroom and a faulty light sensor unit outside our garage.
    I would definitely use him again if required and I have no hesitation in recommending him.

    "Dean did a great job on our new kitchen, removing all the old lighting and connections and installing new ones. We're happy with the work done, he was always friendly and on time, and willing to add small jobs we required in between. His quote was the best and no big unpleasant surprises at the end like we've had with our other traders. We'll definitely be using him again when we get the rest of the house done."

    "Dean has just installed a Smart Vent system for me and I am very happy with his work.
    Dean is friendly and pleasant. We felt very safe having him in our home. He is neat and tidy in his work - there was no mess. He was fast and efficient and he kept me well informed on progress. I feel that his pricing was very reasonable.
    I would whole heartedly recommend him.

    "Thanks Dean for your prompt and professional work. Dean helped me get my new home ready to live in by installing new power points, fitting a rangehood, bathroom heating and extractor fan, plugging in an oven, installing a new pantry light and modernising my fuse switches. Although there was quite a bit to do, I thought it was very reasonably priced. I highly recommend Dean as a trustworthy and professional electrician! "

    "We have used silver fern for a number of jobs including changing light fittings, installing new hotpoints and replacing an outside power feed for our heat pump. Silver fern has always been prompt and arrived when they said they would and have carried out the work in a professional manor. I would recommend silver fern electrical to anyone carrying out electrical work and have recommended them to my friends and family already. "

    "I used Dean from Silver Fern Electricial to do some remedial work on a rental property after being recommended on Neighbourly. He turned up on time, explained the work that needed to be done to bring it up to standard and carried out the work on the same day. I've since used him twice for other properties, the first replacing more old wiring and the second for a new build where he did the pre wire and supplied led lights throughout at a competitive price. I've found Dean to be professional and reliable and he's become my go to for any electrical work."
