“I use Colonial Electrical Services to install tanning bed wiring in multiple locations and occasions, including upgrading amp service. Any electrical problem/upgrade I need I call them! I have checked their prices over the years to make sure they are competitive, and their quotes are always slightly under the other bids for the jobs. Always a good price and service!”

“A very dependable and efficient company. We had a company fix some entrance lights three times, and they quit coming on dawn to dusk. We called Colonial Electric and they fixed them once. They haven’t been back in years, and the lights still come on and off at the perfect times.”

“Their team is professional, trustworthy and efficient.”

We just had Shawn and Eric from Colonial Electric at our home today to install a ceiling fan, replace several light fixtures and fix a few switches. They were very pleasant and professional. They had to build scaffolding to install the fan and the entryway light in our high ceiling. I was extremely impressed with their efficiency. The process of working with Colonial Electric was positive from start to finish. The friendly office staff took all of the information over the phone and explained the rates per hour. I believe that the pricing was very fair. We will definitely use Colonial Electric again the next time we need any electrical work done.


Worked with Trevor and Brett, exceptional electrician. Completed job in scheduled timeframe, polite, curious and good natured. Shared all steps with us since power had to be off all day, very tidy when completed and very grateful for their high end skill in the work they performed.

Will Put Colonial on a ABSOLUTE worth calling and doing future work. TY Colonial for being the best and having the Best.
