“ In a world full of cowboys David Boxall is a Federal Marshall”
I have dealt with a lot of Electricians in my role as Builder/Project Manager: None have met the standard of work or work ethic of David Boxall. If you want a job doing to the highest of standards, with minimum fuss, disruption or mess then David fits the bill admirably. Cannot rate him too highly. Harry. Hargreaves
Great service thanks.

Mr Boxall is registered with the NICEIC which is important. We would highly recommend Mr Boxall."

I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending David. He is totally dedicated to providing the best customer service all round; detailed quotes, he arrives for a project as confirmed and on time, he is a pleasure to have around, provides professional advice and recommendations and offers complete peace of mind and the paperwork and certificates to support his work. David has recently completed a full survey of the electrics in my home and then carried out the work where needed, plus the installation of a number of outside movement sensor lights.
David recently re-wired the house for us. It was not a process we looked forward to – in fact we thought of moving house to avoid it, but decided we had better bite the bullet and get it done. David did everything he could to avoid disruption. He is very hard working, always polite, courteous and cheerful. He came when he said he would and we had no concerns about leaving him in the house while we went out. He was very careful moving our things about and he cleaned up well at the end of each day. He had to remove and replace some tiles and we wouldn’t be able to tell he had done it. He had quoted a fixed price for the job and he stuck to it, despite finding unexpected things in the existing wiring. We would have no hesitation in recommending him.

"We moved into our new home knowing there was work to do to bring it up to present day standards. We knew the importance of using an electrician who was registered with a Government approved organisation as all electrical work in a home must be carried out in line with Part P of the Building Regulations. David is registered with the NICEIC and is a registered Competent Person. I checked.
True electricians have to pass exams & they are regularly evaluated by the inspectors of their trade organisation to make sure they are safe & are current with the latest regulations.
We phoned three electricians & David was the only one who could be bothered to return our call. We asked him to do a condition report on our home & he picked up every single problem that I, as a former electronics technician in the army, had identified myself. I have to say there were more that I had missed, but each one was explained, & I knew enough to know that each was genuine.
We engaged David to do a full rewire of our home. His quote was in line with expectations having researched what "qualified" electricians charge for this work in comparably sized homes.
He worked around our lives causing as little disruption as humanly possible & with animals in the house he was considerate & safety conscience at all times. Over the time he was in our home, I knew I could have trusted him with a key & left him all alone in our house to do the work. There is no greater compliment I can pay than that.
We WILL be employing him again for our future projects (utility room & garden room) & I have no problem in recommending him to anyone & everyone (& I have; to my father-in-law). It is really not worth the risk of employing a self titled electrician who is not qualified, probably has no insurance, has little interest in your safety & takes your money & runs.

Wanted to express our many thanks for the excellent job you did in carrying out the full rewire on our 400 year old cottage. You are reliable, helpful, tidy (Kim asked me to mention that) but above all, you provide peace of mind due to your quality workmanship. Very highly recommended.

I found David Boxall quite by chance on the internet and had not seen any of the wonderful testimonials that people had written about him. When I rang his mobile, he answered after a few rings and was most helpful. We arranged for him to call round the next day and just as promised, he telephoned beforehand to say what time he would arrive and was true to his word. He carried out the work efficiently and had to return the next day after acquiring a part. Again, he telephoned beforehand and we arranged a time for him to call. He completed the work quickly and was most amiable.
If you are looking for a reliable, friendly and efficient electrician look no further - David Boxall is your man. We will definitely be recommending him to family and friends and would have no hesitation in contacting him again in the future should we need any electrical work carried out.

David recently completed a full rewire on my cottage. From first meeting through to the completion of the work, he was straightforward, dependable, approachable, knowledgeable, diligent, thoughtful, considerate, personable, extremely hard working, totally trustworthy and thought laterally which was much appreciated! His price I considered very fair, and was the price I paid – no hidden extras: by the end of the rewire I thought it was a bargain. First class in every possible way – I would, and will, recommend him unreservedly

Dear David, this is to thank you for doing such an excellent job of rewiring our old Malthouse. We do have experience of having several Victorian properties rewired, and we thought we knew a thing or two - until we took a long look at rewiring this very old stone house! It definitely needed a specialist and thankfully we got one – you! We needed someone with good qualifications of course, but we also needed someone with the ability to design an overall strategy for routing between floors (one with no cavity floor space at all). We needed someone who was creative, resourceful and knowledgeable and we found all those things in you. You were determined to give us EVERYTHING we asked for and even “went the extra” mile by sorting out an additional supply for my electric kiln. We cannot thank you enough. You spent a few weeks with us and we found you excellent company into the bargain so I can only say – we certainly got our monies’ worth in so many respects. I think your extraordinary wealth of knowledge gleaned from such a varied background puts you in a category of one. Thank you so very much and we wish you and your family all the very best for the future.

David Boxall has recently rewired our period property. David was upfront with the cost of the rewire, and the price he quoted at the beginning was the price we paid, there were no hidden extras which was really helpful when budgeting. David dealt with the electricity board on my behalf as we didn't have the required voltage entering the property from the outset. This was a huge weight off my mind. In fact during the whole project David willingly gave advice on all aspects of the renovation. This certainly made the project a lot less stressful for me, a first timer. David was reliable, trust worthy and completely transparent. His work was of the highest standard and he is extremely knowledgeable in his field. Employing David was absolutely the best decision. His wealth of knowledge allowed renovating a home for my family be an enjoyable experience for me. It was a pleasure to work with David and I would highly recommend him to anyone.
David is the most professional, knowledgeable, hardworking, reliable electrician we have ever had the pleasure of having to work in our home.
We found David via this website, having read a couple of testimonials about him and his work.
Our 19th Century cottage was in dire need of electrical attention having not been touched for many years. The daunting prospect of a complete rewire and having a new fuse board fitted was made totally achievable, affordable too, with very competitive pricing, and without major upheaval due to David's calm and organised demeanour.
David is methodical and thorough. He has a huge regard for safety and is passionate about his subject and things being done correctly. This is to be admired.
During the initial planning stage he worked with us to find solutions to our electrical needs in every room i.e. lighting, number and position of power points etc, nothing was too much trouble (fitted a shower without any hesitation). His 'Can Do' attitude is so refreshing without worrying about a massive bill at the end.
During the work he kept the level of upheaval and builders mess to a minimum, making good all chased walls and cleaning up after himself, every evening.
His customer service is second to none, no time wasting, always on time, kept us informed on progress and stages of the job, always contactable and makes himself available to customers, during and after completion. This gave us confidence and is a true sign of David's professionalism.
We cannot recommend David more highly. He truly provides an outstanding level customer service.
At the end of the day we have official paperwork guaranteeing the quality of David's work and peace of mind that our cottage is now electrically safe.
Boxall's Electrician is now our first choice for all our electrical needs.
Thank you David.

Mr David Boxall is a well qualified , reliable and highly professional Electrician.He recently did some very good work for us.He specified his charges in advance and they were reasonable.
Before beginning work he tested the voltage at the property.We believe he is the first electrician we have ever employed who has done this.He found the voltage was above the allowed top safe E.U. limit and he immediately informed western Power.They promptly rectified the problem which involved a nearby transformer which serves the area.
Mr Boxall's standard of workmanship is thorough and tidy.He is the best electrician we have had in many years and we would have no Hesitation in using his services again.

Mr.Boxall gets on with what has to be done, checksit is alrightand cleans up before leaving.
When we bought our C19th house we quickly realised we needed extensive electrical work.David Boxall performed many jobs required with a calm good sense and a friendly manner.He explained every step of what he was doing,supplied guarantees for everything,and always left the place clean and tidy. He proved a trustworthy, hardworking and very decent chap who we would recommend without hesitation.

"David recently completed the updating on our electric systems. He was thorough and painstaking and we have the satisfaction of knowing that our house is now properly wired and everything is in order. Thank you, David."
"David Boxall did an excellent job in our home. He was absolutely transparent with his charges and did not mark up the cost of the appliance he installed. His hourly rate was fair and he worked with efficiency and cleaned up well after the job. David was extremely helpful with his advice and all in all I would be happy to recommend him. Yo don't have to wait an age for an appointment either!"
"Having spent my entire working life in the electricial industry from apprentice to retirement,I am familiar with all kinds of electricial installation commercial,domestical and heavy industry . I worked as assistant engineer to the cheif engineer for Vouls Alluminum.
I am most impressed by the work and conduct of David Boxall and am most encouraged by Boxall's discipline and high regard for safty.
David's work is of a high quality at my home and his demeanour without fault.It has been a pleasure to have been in his company and he is welcome in my home.
I have the utmost trust in his ability and commend to all "
So very pleased to have found David.Cannot recomend him highly enough.He is highly skilled in many aspects,has every bit of equipment needed to carry out his work ,is friendly,cheerful and no time watcher !
"Highly recomend David to all "
David Boxall has completed excellent work for us over several months :
plumbing repairs,completely retiliing a shower room, carpentry(creating awkwardly placed new kitchen cupboards amongst other projects) and electrical work - the later involving the fitting of a new towel rail and maticulous checks on the houses electric circuitry.
David Carries a diary and keeps his promises about when he will come to do the work and has let us know if he has had to change a date . Rather than ignoring them , David also responds to telephone anwsering machine messages !
"We thoroughly recomend David for his work and attitude ."
"We cannot recommend Boxall's Electrician highly enough."
We contacted David Boxall to sort out the CU in our old cottage, after the 40 year old original had been upgraded to the current RCD protected unit by an electrician who failed to get it to operate and informed us that the property required a complete rewire.
We found David to be knowledgeable and experienced and excellent at problem solving in an old property. As a result of his methodical testing and diagnosis, it transpired that only a short length of lighting cable in the attic required replacing in the original wiring and by replacing worn sockets, switches and ceiling roses in the course of his work and remaking a few connections to meet current specifications he achieved results which have left us fully confident that we now have a safe and fully protected electricity supply to the cottage and all the outbuildings.
It would be hard to find a more professional, courteous, hard-working, efficient person to work in your home with the minimum of disruption and mess and the bonus of possessing all the building skills to make good any damage, both structural and cosmetic, made necessary by the work he has done.
"Employing him has been a very positive experience."
