Customer Feedback & Testimonials

Always friendly and prompt - a great team of professionals.

Lisa D

Mike responded efficiently to our request for an electrician. He arrived on time on the agreed date and not only fixed an existing problem but corrected another fault for no charge whilst with us. Absolutely brilliant.

Mark Lees

These guys wire my Electric car charger up in two houses as well as installing a tv aerial as well. Couldn’t fault their work, timeliness and communication. It was done when they said they would do it and with a smile on their faces and for a great and fair price. I’d happily use these guys again. Mike was great to deal with. Cheers, Mark

Mark Urlic

Super company to deal with - lovely guys that came out and they have done a fantastic job replacing all our lights and repairing our stove after it blew up. Highly recommend and will use again without hesitation if the need arises.

During the past two years we had extension renovations done on our house. Dale from Mackay Electrical did all the electrical work which involved quite a challenging outdoor lighting concept. At all times Dale was competent and offered good ideas to assist us. He was always friendly and obliging and did a great job.

Dear Dale, Thank you for the wiring you completed for us. We are very pleased with the outcome. Congratulations on presenting the best invoice we have ever witnessed. The detail was superb and the description of work undertaken was completely clear. If you continue with this explicit detail in all your invoices you will pull in a lot more work in the future. You certainly have our support. Thank you.

Dale Mackay is a personable fellow and a pleasure to have working in your home. He has excellent work ethics making himself available whenever there is an emergency. He has many helpful suggestions when planning alterations both indoors and exterior. The success of his business is his positive helpful attitude.

Anne and Robert SmithAmberley

Mackay Electrical Services are a pleasant surprise from experiences we have had with other tradesmen. Dale Mackay takes the time to explain what is required for the job (in plain English), is always prepared to quote, arrives when he says he will arrive and becomes “invisible” whilst working at your premises. After service is fantastic – Dale follows up to ensure satisfaction, but most importantly cleans up after work. Our experience with other trades people is – after the job we start cleaning up. We would not use any other electrical services and would not hesitate to recommend Mackay Electrical Services to anyone needing a professional timely and friendly electrician.

Michelle TubbKaiapoi

When we moved to Fernside in 2007, we needed an electrician we could rely on, as all our services require power. Looking in the local phone book we picked Mackay Electricial Services as he was Rangiora based. We have been able to call Dale on numerous occasions to wire appliances, fix light fittings, spa wiring installation and caravan plug outlet. Dale has always been contactable, friendly, price competitive and most importantly, reliable. We have no hesitation in recommending Mackay Electrical Services.
