Excellent, timely work. Very professional and courteous. I had a new chandelier placed in my foyer, They replaced it quickly and disposed of the old chandelier and the box that new one came with for me. Not only did they clean up after themselves, but one of the guys asked me if it was okay to turn in the vacuum bc he didn't want the loud noise to scare the baby. SUPER thoughtful. A++++ you guys are doing it right!read more

I come from a perspective of "things happen." And unfortunately something did. When I called Nipper, a he-said, she-said situation arose with my tenant that could have turned ugly. Nipper didn't go there. I was very pleased with the way they responded to my call. Now I could see how they handled an adverse situation. And I get be them very High marks! I have several rentals; and I will definitely used them again. Their pricing is very fair.read more

Reasonable price, quality work and exceptional customer service/relations! My wife and I were expecting a baby any day when we encountered an electrical issue in the nursery that we needed fixed as soon as possible. I called Nipper Electric and Trey Nipper called me back 10 minutes later. They were able to send out a technician who found and fixed the issue the same day. Given our busy schedule with baby planning, it was a relief to work with a company like Nipper who took care of our issue quickly. We will definitely be using Nipper Electric in the future. If you are in the search for an electrician, your search is over... just give Nipper Electric a call.read more

Nipper Electric is by far the best electrician company I have ever hired. Trey and his guys ROCK! They do such exemplary work every time. Last fall, they rewired practically our entire home and modernized our system in the walls, meters, lighting, ceiling fans, outlets, under-counter lighting. You name it; they do it. Such a class act and so professional, GRADE "A" WORK. I can't say enough about this organization and their crew. From start to finish, they dealt with all the inspections, went above and beyond the norm. We just had Nipper Electric back at our home yesterday with outside lighting, more indoor work, and, once again, their work is exceptional. My Mom hired them to rework her under-counter lighting that was put in by another "not-up-to-par" electrician less than a year ago. She was so unhappy with her only 9-month old under-counter lighting that she decided to hire Nipper Electric because of the great work they did for my brother and me. And she is so happy with her new under-counter lighting replacement by Nipper Electric. She only wishes my brother and I had found them before she had her kitchen lighting installed. She's so happy now! And my brother and I are again giving rave reviews to Nipper Electric. Thank you Trey, Zach and Jessie. We feel like you guys are friends now! Thanks, Nancy Y. Smithread more

I was extremely impressed with this company, beginning with the VP, Trey, who came to my home to assess my particular situation, which was to convert a Fiberstars fiberoptic pool light to an LED light. Trey is highly intelligent and willing to take the time to research the situation at hand and study the data I had managed to collect for this undertaking. The electricians, Zack and Jessie, who came to do the work were also highy professional, congenial, hard-working, and knowledgeable and completed the task iwith exceptional efficiency in spite of the fact that they had never done such a conversion before. I am delighted with the outcome and would highly recommend Nipper Electric for any of your electrical needs.read more

Trey and Zack installed a variety of lights all over our home. The installation included wall sconces, recessed ceiling lights, combo bathroom exhaust/light fans, and under counter kitchen led lights. Their work was very professionally done, without any setbacks. They cleaned up after the job was finished and left our house spotless. You can't go wrong with this company.read more

Needed an electrician quick and Nipper Electric responded to my email request within a reasonable amount of time. Immediately after they called me, i was able to send them a photograph by text messaging of my issue and they were able to give me a reasonable quote within minutes. Within the next few hours Nipper employees were at my door. They made little noise, were professional and respectful, cleaned up after themselves, and did not waste tume when completing the job. They were in and out within the hour. I would recommend this company for those who want a quick, quality service for those jobs which need a proffesional touch.read more

I had a home inspection in connection with the sale of my home. I searched the top rated electrical companies & decided to go with Nipper Electric based on reviews by customers. Nippers had only positive reviews. My electrician today was Zack & he was extremely knowledgeable & efficient. He took the time to explain everything to me in terms I could understand. The home inspector had stated my GFCI issues incorrectly. Zack only fixed issues that he verified needed to be corrected. I was so thankful for Zack's level of expertise & am extremely grateful I took the time to research the best...Nipper Electric!! I highly recommend Nipper Electric.read more
