“Truly friendly and professional service. From the first phone call – which was both in-depth and welcoming – to the final installation – which was incredibly professional and respectful of our 200-year-old house. I’ve already recommended these guys to other people and will be coming back when I’m ready to put in a second charging point.”

No mess

“APi provided a great service. From initial contact, the charging point was installed within 10 days. The electrician was very professional and fitted the charger with no mess at all. I’m very pleased with the result and would highly recommend APi.”

Great job

“Called to request a charge point installation, Jill & the team were very helpful in fitting the job in very quickly at short notice and Ian the electrician did a great job – neat & professional. I can highly recommend this firm.”

Above and beyond

“The job was quoted for and completed within 3 working days by one of their installers (Ian) who was absolutely excellent. Also, I should add, I was given a fair amount of “general” advice and guidance that was above and beyond.”


“Fantastic communication, friendly and professional advice and the charger was installed very fast. They also helped me through the paperwork. I have no hesitation in recommending API Electrical and I would definitely use their services again. Thank you for everything. (PS. I have no affiliation with this company the views expressed are my own)”.


“The whole process of installing the charge point was very straight forward. The electrician was very thorough, took time to ensure that the positioning was the best and would work well for me. He was very friendly, a tidy worker and took time to explain the whole operation.”
