Highly professional and complete service

From the moment I contacted Vancity Electric, they have had impeccably professional service. The sales rep gave me a complete quote, answered all my questions promptly, provided me with extra suggestions, and was upfront about some potential issues that may make the job larger than quoted.

On the day of the job, the two electricians answered all my questions, were prompt, explained exactly what they were going to do, and worked hard to avoid the extra issues mentioned above.

Vancity is not the cheapest, but you get what you pay for and I would hire them again for my next job.

New Lighting

I am very happy with Vancity Electric and would not hesitate to contact them for help again or recommend them for friends and family for their jobs or concerns. (In fact I already have.) Cory was very helpful and reassuring through the booking process and answered my many questions with such professionalism and kindness which I really appreciated. Matt was also so professional and kind both the day of the installation and when I had to ask them to return as there had been some damage to one of the new lights due to another unrelated Contractor in my home. (Which made me even more appreciative of both Cory and Matt at Vancity!) I also then had to ask Cory to book another appt with Vancity for repair from damage caused during floor installation and an electrical socket that I was concerned about and again Cory was extremely professional answered my concerns with knowledge and care and booked Dustin to come by and complete the work. Dustin was also so kind and professional and took the time even though this was a very small job considering what they must complete in their day. I am very impressed with Vancity Electric and would not hesitate to recommend them at all!

Laurie, I just wanted to say thank you for such a detailed amazing review. Not a lot of people take the time to write something nice. The things you write about are the things that I am most passionate about. And I’m glad the message is being heard by my guys and that they are conveying it to our clients.

Panel Upgrade, EV charger and garage lights

Vancity Electric was quick and efficient and did their due diligence which ended up saving us a lot of money. We requested a 200 amp service upgrade as well as the panel upgrade. Upon investigating, they discovered that we already had a 200 amp service(which ended up saving us about $7000, according to a quote from another company) and that we just needed the panel upgrade.

Non working pot lights in kitchen area.

Had pot lights in the kitchen area that were not working. Vancity Electric technician came over and fixed the issue quickly. Just needed to replace the light bulbs and made them work even though we tried to do it ourselves earlier and couldn’t get the same results. Will use them again in the future.

200 amp upgrade and potlight installation

Vancity upgraded my electrical panel from 125 amps to 200 amps, and did everything needed with the City and BC Hydro so I did not need to deal with them myself. They also installed a large number of potlights in the house. Cory and Geoff, and their team, did a fantastic job at a fair price. They were also thoughtful in terms of working through some of the complexities thrown up by BC Hydro and their not-always-reasonable rules; another contractor might have just given up the job (or tried to stiff me for more) but Cory and Geoff worked through to find a solution effectively. I would certainly recommend Vancity to others.
