    "We had some electrical lighting that was laid throughout my garden that needed to be made safe and removed for garden improvement in our new home to continue, from first contact Glen was professional, assessing wether this was an emergency call out was reassuring, he came the next day and worked quickly to cap the electricity from source and remove remnants, putting my mind at rest that I had no live electricity wired throughout my garden. Thank you to Glen and his colleague. Prompt service was much appreciated."

    "Finally, an electrician I can trust. I had an EICR carried out by a company recommended by a letting agent. The electrician said that there were just some advisories before he left, then the letting agents phoned and said we had failed. The report stated that the consumer unit wouldn't protect someone who should bang a nail into the wall into the electrical cable underneath. I contacted a company that was on Trustatrader, and gave him a copy of the report and all he was interested in was recommending a full rewire for £3000, then it rose to £4000, a minute later. I contacted A Star, and they duly arrived and informed me the unit was protected by an 80 amp RCD and in the report had tested and passed it, also the the report had pictures of the RCD, so the unit shouldn't have failed. I questioned the failure and waited 2 weeks for a reply. they wouldn't budge from their decision. I then contacted A Star to conduct an EICR, the wiring passed. Definitely employ A Star again."
