Worth every dime, 10/22/2014

If you want it done right, the first time, call Kalahari Electrical. They go the extra mile, to satisfy and figure out what is needed, not what can they get. I would recommend them to anyone, family... and friends.

Professional, knowledgeable, and trustworthy, 9/08/2014

If you are looking for an electrician who will go above and beyond the call of duty to supply quality workmanship and customer satisfaction, you need to look no further than Kalahari. Not only was... Jan willing to fit me into his schedule at 7am on a Monday, but also confirmed and communicated his progress prior and throughout the appointment. I had several small projects due and he itemized the formal quote which enabled me to make informed decisions. I found his knowledge and advice, which he delivered with a good dose of humor, extremely helpful. This will be my go-to electrician in future as he will be hard to beat in terms of pricing and service.

Satisfied.

After a poor experience with another electrician, it was good to find someone who would stand behind their work. There was some initial miscommunication between partner/owners(?) at Kalahari regarding how much they would charge to fix the problem. We resolved it and I'm generally satisfied with the work.

Improper Wiring

I will start by giving a disclaimer in saying that initially I was satisfied with the work performed. My only reason for writing this review is b/c I feel it would be irresponsible for me not to share my experience. Joe did a complete rewiring of a home for me in July 2009. Last week the power went out at the house and I called Georgia Power who discovered that the main feed line in the meter box had burned straight though and told me that an improper splice had been made with a copper connection (which corrodes aluminum wire) and that was the cause. As per Georgia Power this one mistake could have potentially caused a fire. I did speak to Joe who offered to replace the burnt wires at cost; however, I chose to pay more and go with a different company.

Kalahari Electrical Services replied on 10-18-2010

I am very sorry about your experience with us,but as I mentioned on my companies visit to your property,that the splice you are referring to is typical of what Power companies like Georgia Power install.We do not have a tool to do an inline splice in a service cable nor do we have access to that kind of splice.My honest oppinion about what happened here was that the splice was done by a third party after our installation.I still offered to replace the whole service cable at cost.We have never installed any splices in any service cables ever,and never will even though by code it is now legal to do.Joe Cloer,Kalahari Electrical Services.

Amazing Service

I used Kudzu to find an electrican to upgrade our control panel. They did a good job, so I asked for an estimate on putting in recessed lighting. I thought their quote was high, so I came back to Kudzu to get some more estimates. I contacted Kalahari and spoke with Joe. I was impressed by his experience and knowledge and he gave me a fair estimate, so I didn't go any further. He said he was able to do it on Friday, but I wanted to be there. He offered to come early (6:30am) on Saturday and bring his whole crew (I had to go to work by noon and needed them done by then). We live in Peachtree City, and he came from outside Athens. I was impressed that he got to our place by 6:45 and his crew was there at 6:30. They were able to put the lights in with no damage to the existing ceiling. I actually had them put in more lights and fan boxes for our porch since they did such a great job. Joe and his crew were fast and effecient and very courteous. They even did some minor electrical jobs without charging. (Now that's customer service). I had to have Joe come back to reinforce the fan boxes and he did so right away and without hesitation. I will definitely be using Joe again and I highly recommend Joe and his crew.

Fast response time & great customer service

Around midnight on a Saturday, our lights in half the house dimmed about 50% and both AC units stopped working. We were leaving for a vacation in 9 hours and this was awful timing. After realizing it was not an AC issue and it was electrical, we searched on Kudzu for someone who worked on Sundays with high ratings. I called Kalahari at 7am on Sunday and Jan returned my call in minutes. We also called GA Power just in case it was related to their service. While on the phone with Jan, he helped guide us through diagnosing the problem. We were still not sure what was wrong, and since we were leaving to vacation that morning, Jan said he would send someone out in the next hour. About 10 minutes later GA Power arrived and we learned there was an underground break to one of our power lines and they had to fix it. I immediately called Jan back who said the electrician was about 45 minutes away and he would cancel it. Jan was very kind and helpful through the entire process. In the future, Kalahari is the company I will call and recommend when needed an electrician.

Super Easy

This was a flawless execution. I found these guys here, on Kudzu, called and made an appt for the next day. I had a wish list of repairs/installs, and almost all of what I needed from Home Depot (bathroom exhaust fan, dimmer switches, etc.). These guys showed up on time, assessed what I would need, approx how long it would take, and went to Home Depot themselves to get what I didn't know to get. They charged by the hour, but didn't start the clock until they came back with all the correct supplies. There were two of them, so they split up, took on my wish list, and finished everything very quickly. They cleaned up before they left and even changed a flood light bulb that was way out of range for my step ladder. My only regret is related to how long I waited before actually calling someone.

Fantastic customer service

When our 72 year old house had electrical problems, Joe came out on short notice and quickly determined a number of wiring issues that past electricians had missed. He made sure to educate us with every step, discussing the needed safety improvements and optional measures that we could take for fixing our problems. The quality of his crew's work was outstanding and they were very courteous and did a great job with cleanup too. I will definitely be using this company again!

Wow... phone advice with no pressure!

I just got off the phone with Kalahari after calling to discuss a breaker problem. The person listened to my problem, asked a question or two and made a diagnosis. To prove it he had me flip a couple of the switches in a certain order while predicting the consequences and sure enough, he was right! I then asked him what to do to repair this. With no hesitation, he told me what to do. When I expressed a slight concern and asked him what it would cost to have him do it, he quoted me a very fair price. No pressure at all, and I do believe he has a new customer, although one who hasn't hired him yet! Thank you!

Fast, Quality work

This is the third time Kalahari has done electrical work of some kind at my house and each time they have been great. I was impressed by the speed they got everything done, and the quality of the work. Very nice - would certainly recommend highly.

Responsive and Competetively Prices

My Issue: control panel at residential home needed replacing Pros: Best Pricing. Began work within 4 business days of my call. Courteous/Professional staff. Finished job quickly. Good Quality of work. Panel worked 100%. Cons: Arrived 1.5 hours after I expected them. I expected them to have all needed to completed job, but they had to leave to get parts (note: some workers did stay and began prepping/removing old panel, but they were idle for 30-40 minutes until the parts arrived). I consider these "cons" to be minor relative to my overall satisfaction with the job this company completed for me.

Honest and Personable

Joe arrived at my condo ready to work. Being a new condo owner, I was not aware that the condo required a Certificate of Ins. from every service worker. Joe gladly had a copy faxed to the office upon his arrival. Joe performed the work professionally, left no mess, and charged a reasonable price. He was very personable. I will definitely use him for all my electrical needs.

professional, efficient, and honest

Jan and his team did a great job. Jan returned all of my calls immediately, was very easy to work with in setting up the appointment, and arrived just when he said he would. Not only did he thoroughly explain all the work he was going to do, he and his team came back that night to complete the job. They were efficient and professional throughout the whole process. Their prices were also very reasonable. Honest company with great work ethic. I would highly recommend their services!

Excellent Electrcian and very professional

I was having some issues with a water feature and needed an electrician to take a look at it. Kalahari Electrical Service was recommended to me by another contractor that was doing some work for me. From the time Jan arrived to the time he left, he was very professional. He found the source of the problem, went and purchased the supplies that were needed, and made the repairs the same day. A few days later the problem returned, I called Jan and he came back out. It was determined, after several test, that the feature was still getting electricity, and that I needed to contact the contractor that installed the feature. Jan was nice enough to call the contractor and explain what causing the pump in the feature to trip and stop working. Even though Janís part was complete, he still followed up with a courtesy call. I would use and recommend them to family and friends.
