On 1/12/2006, I visited the office of the Electric Connection. The purpose of this visit was to pay for the work. I met the Project Manager. It was agreed that the work would start on Monday,1/16/2003 at 9:00am. On that Monday the company did not show or call. I called the company. I spoke with the Project Manager. He gave a bunch of excuses, finally stating that my work had not been scheduled for that day. As a result, the work had to be rescheduled.

The most expensive bid, however the quaility of the work was excellent. The price could still have been a little less.

Project took longer than expected. They underestimated work involved and try to make up for the lost labor by overcharging me in other areas such as replacing of bulbs, dimmers, wiring, etc that all worked before the project was started. I had to hire diff electricians to finish the little stuff and they charged me less than 1/3 of re-quote to "finish" initial job

They did a pretty standard job of adding 4 extra lines for our office using external tubing. Over the phone Neil said the job would cost about $1500.00 if he were to give an estimate. I asked him what their hourly rate was and he said he charges $125 for the first half hour then $125 for each hour after. We even did the math over the phone and concluded that for a full day (8 hours) it would cost about $1000 ($1062.5 to be exact) and about $200 for parts. I was sure this job would not take an entire day so I was sure it would be less than $1200 at an hourly rate so I took that option. Stupid of me I didn't get it in writing (and shame on them for not putting it in writing either) because when the job was finally over he wanted to charge me over $1500 dollars for 6 hours of work. He then said the rate was $175 an hour cuz he sent 3 men! Not only that, I specifically told them what parts we needed before they came to save time but they forgot to bring the parts and tried to charge me for that time. I have a hard time someone in this business could forget to get something in writing and Neil just tried to make me pay an absurd amount. Eventually I showed them another estimate I got for around $1250 and told Neil there is no way I would have agreed to the job if the price would have gone over 1250. Don't use them! The electricians are OK ***
