Great Emergency Service

Stupidly drilled a hole in back of improperly located electrical panel on Sunday afternoon at 3;15 PM; clled five companies; only one available was Lightning Bug. Very professional on phone, quick to get back to me and Larry King showed up as advised, on-time, in uniform and highly professional attitude. Larry knew exactly what to do, did not laugh at our predicament and fixed it. Never slowed down, never repeated a move either, the guy was simply the best electician I have ever seen doing residential work. Emergency charge was $250 plus time but time was reasonable. On my "recommend this guy" list.

good work, professional & honest

This was the first time we used an electrician since moving to Atlanta. We wanted a surge protector installed in my parents' townhome. Very easy transaction. I used Kudzu to find Lightning Bug Electric through reviews (thanks, again, fellow reviewers)--this was again a great call. Liked the emphasis on a team lead being a master electrician. I called and found out that they did do work in my parents' neck of the woods. They made it an easy call. I got a reminder call a couple of days ahead. We got Bobby--who arrived right on time. My parents really liked him alot. He was patient with them: took the time that was needed to diagnose and fix the electrical issues that needed to be addressed. In addition to the work we requested (the installation of a surge protector), he also found 2 circuit breakers needed to be replaced and showed my parents that you could tell this was the case from the fact that they were warm to the touch. He wasn't in a hurry to get out of there--Bobby took his time. And my parents felt he was an honest person and wasn't trying to find any additional (unneeded) work to pad the bill. He explained everything that was needed and didn't lobby for anything else to be done. I would definitely call upon Lightning Bug Electric again (and hope to get Bobby)! They also offer senior/military discounts, which is really appreciated.

Got what I paid for

Had a bedroom with no electric, trouble shot as far as I could then called Lightning Bug. Two technicians arrived and I informed them of the problem. They let me know the price to fix the problem and then proceeded to troubleshoot. With in just over 20 minutes they concluded a loose wire in the adjoining bedroom was the issue. There were no high tech tools used just a circuit tester and experience.They traced the issue to a ceiling fan wire and sure enough there it was, a wire that had come loose from the wire nut. Once connected the dead bedroom came on. I was impressed with both technicians ability to find something that I would not have found otherwise. The price was a little more than I was hoping to spend but they had a coupon available which helped.They also provided information of other items that may need attention in the future and the price of those services.I will use Lightning Bug in the future for any electrical needs.

Professional and great service

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

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.
