I own an old Victorian warehouse which has been turned into a storage unit in Walsall. We needed an EICR inspection for our insurance company. I called 3 other companies out but not one of them was interested in doing the job. I think the size and age of the building was putting them off but Jon from Mr Electric seemed motivated by taking on such a difficult task.
David Munns 4 reviews 2 months ago- Fantastic result when they carried out my EICR test on my premises in Sutton Coldfield they spotted that we were supplying the next unit to us with all their electricity for their lights. We have claimed back thousands and now have far cheaper bills to boot.
