Speedy Electric in Roswell, Georgia USA sent out a technician for my insurance company and the technician told my husband and I that our fuse box was doing what it was suppose to be doing by tripping so it wouldn't overload. He said our fuse box was a good one and that we didn't need to do anything. Great! So everything looked good. When I called up the insurance company to check on my warranty, I was told about the work that was done......What work? So I apparently had some reconfiguration of some wiring done.......somewhere....I don't know where. My husband and I were standing right there with this technician Alex and he didn't do anything in our house. He had me sign a blank worksheet and told me that he needed to fill it out in his truck. I stated that we didn't have any work done and he said it was for the insurance company to let them know that he had come out to our house. Now I can see why he didn't fill it out in the house. I will never recommend that anyone call Speedy Electric to do work in their home. The warranty company said I needed to pay them for the job that was done ($417.00) because I had decided to cancel my warranty. Most expensive NO WORK job I've ever experienced. These warranty companies need to verify with customers what work if any was actually done before they pay out. AND never sign blank work sheet. Mark through it first and write what if any work was done and mark through any left over lines so no more work can be added to invoice.
Checked fuse box and verified that all was in good condition. No work was done other than to look at fuse box.
Area Carrollton, GA
Cost $250 - $499

I had a great experience with Jay removing and replacing a corroded bus bar in the panel. The configuration is a little odd and he did a great job creatively problem-solving what to do. I did have a miscommunication about scheduling - I thought he'd come back on Tuesday unless I called but then it turned out they were expecting me to call to schedule. When I did call they were great and very flexible about rescheduling and it wasn't an issue over all very satisfied.

We recently purchased a 90 year old home in Atlanta and with it came some expected repairs/upgrades that were necessary. Several of which required an honest, reliable and licensed electrician. Knowing that we'd be working with many electrical issues over the many years that we plan on living here, we wanted to get 4 different proposals for our first electrical project: replacing the 18 year old Fuse box ; replacing the old Meter box; and all extending plugs and switches and all GFCI and more. They provided us an itemized proposal;They went through the permitting and inspection. The job was completed in a timely manner. They didn't collect any payment until the work was completed.

I have never left a review of any service provider in the past but felt I had to warn anyone needing an emergency electrician, A portion of my lights flickered and went out the other night while my husband was out of town. I called Speedy and explained what was happening. When they came out the electrician showed me that it would be $273 for troubleshooting, a high charge but I understood it being an emergency, I would need to pay more. Well, they replaced nothing, and it took all of about five minutes.. When I got the final bill, it had an additional $189 fee for them coming out.. This was in addition to the exaggerated "trouble shooting" charge. I was called days later to see when the service man could replace our meter. That was never mentioned to me up front. Georgia Power came out to see the problem and said that Speedy should have never come out here. They said based on my explanation, Speedy knew driving out here that it was a very basic GA Power repair that should have cost us nothing. It was a very common symptom of an easily diagnosed problem without having a technician come out to charge me for NO work. In addition, I asked the GA Power representative if we needed a new meter and he told me no... So, they charged me $472 for no work.. and something they knew would need the power company's repair. DON'T USE THIS COMPANY!!! THEY ARE NOTHING SHORT OF DISHONEST!!!! If I could leave no star.. I would!

This is a terrible company to do business with. I hired them to do some changes to my bedroom and they did goofy work. when I turn the bath fan, the other room light comes on and when I call them and try to tell them to come and fix it they hang up on me Alex and his wife Sonya.They just keep lying to customer. So please DO NOT use this company such west of time and money.

Outstanding and reliable service! We had just moved into our new home and discovered a major electrical problem in our panel box. We contacted Speedy Electric at 6:30 pm on Monday, and they were out the next day at 10 am sharp - their scheduled time. Our Electricians expert Alec and James was so professional, quick, and knowledgable. He discovered a minor issue with our Panel box and fixed it. If we run into any Electrical problems in the future, we will definitely be calling Speedy Electric for sure.

Every year we get a home inspection done for all the electrical systems in the house and hire Speedy Electric to handle all the electrical work. They have been our official choice from many years, their technician do a complete inspection of the house and repair any faulty or damaged wires and switches. Speedy Electric always offers us a very good estimate and also provides suggestions and improvements that may be done. I shall highly recommend Speedy Electric to everyone who needs to fix any electrical issues.

Speedy Electric quickly diagnosed the problem and came up with a plan to fix it (part of my condo building had to have the power shut off). The great thing about the Speedy electric, they come on site with a big truck full of tools/parts - they had everything necessary to fix a very complex job in a little over an hour. These guys are the real experts, honest and professional.

Speedy Electric came to my house and quickly identified problem. Could have done unnecessary work but identified minor problem that was quickly addressed. Will definitely call them first if I have another concern.

Fantastic! They did a fantastic job, again! Several years ago when my old meter broke suddenly on very hot day in July on a weekend, they were up for the emergency and responded with 5 stars. Today, a Sunday, my old panel box which they advised me that it need it to be change in future sizzled.Yep,.. In a flash and with expert care, they responded and completed the work just in time for dinner. Reliable, responsible, very honest. My family and I are very grateful!!!

We are very pleased with Speedy Electric. We needed a new line run to our hot tub out side. We called Speedy and they promptly scheduled a time for an estimator to come and tell us our options. He laid out the entire process in a clear manner, and explained our options well. The work was scheduled at a convenient time for us and the entire job was done well by two friendly and very hardworking Electricians.We love them and will used them again for sure.
