Professional and great service, 5/06/2015

Tim came out quickly to diagnose a problem with our power cutting out and found a bad main house breaker that needed replaced. They ordered the part right away and even bumped up our appointment a... day early because the bad breaker was tripping. James did the install and had it replaced with minimal down time. He also ran an extra outlet in our basement and did a pro job on that too, cleaned up like there was never any work done, just the new dedicated outlet. Would definitely recommend these guys.

Superb Customer Service, 4/23/2015

Tim's industry knowledge is exceptional. He did a superb job figuring out and coordinating a complicated project. His patience was greatly appreciated. I should mention that we bid this job out to... several vendors. Surprisingly, all bids were within a few dollars of each other. We made our decision not based on price but on the value that Tim's experience brought to the project. He undoubtedly saved us future headaches because of his foresight. Leo led the install team and did a FANTASTIC job! He motivated his team to work hard and fast to meet our city inspector's deadline. I highly recommend Lightning Bug. Tim, Leo, Jaison and Cody, much thanks for a job very well done!

If you're reading this, call now and ask for James

I've had many contractors at my properties and this firm is professional from start to finish. The experience started with James giving a warm smile and a handshake, putting booties on and wasting no time getting to diagnostics. He was very professional and courteous and informed me of the process along the way. I had a somewhat complex problem and he had no problem identifying and fixing, making sure everything was done right and up to code. They will be my go to electricians in Atlanta from now on.

Quick and Courteous

Michael and Steven came right on time to the house and were very well presented. They were nice and clear and straightforward with how they did their job and what the costs were. They fully understand how to do their work and did it much faster than I was expecting them to so I was able to go on with my plans the rest of the day. Will always come back to use this company 5/5!

Very detailed in their service.

Every attention to detail was given to the issues we had. Much care was taken to protect the hardwood floor. The technician explained all about what he found and the option to repair or replace. He verified with me that everything we had called about was taken care of.

I love Lightning Bug!

I needed to have my electricity inspected because I thought that it was causing issues with my refrigerator. I found Lightning Bug using Google and I spoke with Becca. She was very polite and helpful with trying to schedule an appointment around my work schedule. She even called in the afternoon to confirm the appointment and let me know what time the technician would arrive. Michael showed up on time and was extremely polite. He thoroughly answered all of my questions and made sure that he double checked everything after troubleshooting my electric box. He quickly determined the problem and explained my options regarding repairs. He was very knowledgeable and fast without sacrificing quality. He was also very honest about my repair options. I did not feel scammed or as if he was trying to perform additional services just for the sake of charging me additional money. I would recommend Lighting Bug services to anyone who is in need of electric services. I love them!

LOOK NO FURTHER FOR EXCELLENCE

Characters: 69 year old grandmother; Michael and Steven Only many thanks can be said to a company that hires true professionals who love their company. These young men installed damaged receptacle and replaced my 42 yr old electrical panel making me feel so much safer. Both men were personable and professional and I will not hesitate to call and request them if I need any other electrical work done! (They know I do!)They are a credit to a company who takes professionalism seriously and makes their staff feel like family. I will recommend them to all my friends and neighbors. Again, thank you , Michael, Steven and Lightning Bug Electric!

great quality work

So somehow my first review got lost. Last week I called lightening bug electric to install a grounding system, and put wire my house for cable/internet (the main reason for my call). I had comcast come the day before to try, but they are not the useful company to do work with (being gentle here), and decided I didnt want them touching my house, so had professionals come and do it. Michael C. came the day after I called, discussed with me the best plan of course for the grounding and coaxial for at least half and hour, and then got to work. He worked for almost 6 hours without stopping. He placed both the grounding rods, wire, and coaxial (RG6) through my garage, into the basement, and then ran the cable to the outlets I had specified. He was knowledgable, friendly, professional (put on booties), and did really clean and quality work. I would highly recommend michael and the company again, and will likely be using them again in the future. The price was steep, but I did not get quotes from other companies, and the workmanship seemed to match the price.

Fantastic Service

I called and Michael came out the same day! Was able to diagnose the problem, made sure we were safe, and we scheduled a repair appointment. Michael and Steven came out and did the necessary repairs. Both gentlemen were extremely professional, knowledgeable and courteous. These guys are my new permanent electricians!! They are terrific.

Great customer service

I had a space heater blow out the electricity in one room (including an outlet) late one evening. I found lightning bug on Kudzu and saw all of the great reviews. I called and they said they would call me first thing in the morning to let me know when they could be there. As promised, I received a call early that morning saying they would be there between 8 and 10 and would call 30 minutes before arrival. I got a call at 8:30am saying they were on the way. Jeremy (Reel) and Cody arrived, did an assessment, provided an estimated and had the repairs completed in about 30 minutes. They were honest and courteous and didn't try to pressure me into fixing something that was not necessary. It's nice when a company does what they say their going to do and doesn't try to sell you something you don't need. I would definitely use them again!

Very satisfied customer

The whole experience was great. Becca was courteous and scheduled me right away. Leo and Jaison arrived early. They gave me an estimate and started working. They were done in no time and even mounted the TV mount for me at no additional charge. I do think the pricing is a bit high based on an internet estimate for the area, but I would use them again.

Speedy and reliable

Had Lightening Bug come to house for a problem with our cabinet hockey puck lights (under mount). Luckily, they came to the house within an hour of my call. Michael C was my technician and did nice job explaining some alternatives and gave me the cost estimates for each. I found him very knowledgeable and polite. He was expeditious in his work and did the entire job in about an hour. Honestly, I did think the cost was extremely high, given the task - but in the end I felt they did nice job.

Professional Quality Service

Michael C was our technician for a small wiring job: the addition of six outlets in various rooms, one switched and one GFI'd. Michael was TOTALLY polite and professional and performed his work with dedication (long day!) and commitment. At the end, Michael left our home clean (well, as clean as he found it) and our environment greatly enhanced with the new outlets. Michael also suggested a whole house surge protector for us, explaining the benefits, and so we will likely be using Lightning Bug Electric in the near future for this work as well.
