"Thank you for a great job well done...a house rewire. Very difficult work undertaken with great care & professionalism. Many issues overcome and the outcome is a safe home. I would recommend Matthew for any electrical needs you may have. You will get full peace of mind and a job well done."

Mr O'Neill, Colchester

"I had to call Matthew out a couple of times - once when a circuit breaker kept 'tripping out' and once when I needed my Dad's house thoroughly checked out. On both occasions he was thorough and professional; I was extremely satisfied with the work done and glad to have a tradesman I could trust doing the work. I will certainly call on him again."

Ali, Colchester

"Thank you Matthew for wiring up my cooker this morning and sorting our the washing machine. Your efficiency and good manners are much appreciated."

Mr Campbell, Colchester

"We had Orchard Electrical in to fix up an electrical supply to our double cellars including lights and mains sockets, and to replace our aged consumer unit. We were very impressed with the quality of work and the sheer tenacity of the guy when confronted with problems. To ensure we were not left without electricity overnight he worked until 10pm one evening.We will certainly use Orchard's again."

Chris L, Colchester

"Came the same day to fit my lights and charged what he said he would, even though he worked over the hour by 10 minutes. Would call him again."

Kaylee, Colchester

"If you need the services of an electrician in the Colchester area, you could not do better than Matthew Orchard. He has just completed a full rewire for us and he has done a excellent job. He is conscientious, hard working, courteous and thoroughly honest. His prices are very fair and he consulted with us throughout the process. Furthermore, nothing was too much trouble for him and he helped us out cheerfully with a couple of other non-electrical jobs that needed doing. His knowledge of and commitment to his trade is exemplary and I am very happy to write a glowing review. I have no hesitation in recommending Matthew. If it's electrical services you want, you could do no better"

Mary C, Colchester

"My whole kitchen went live today due to a mistake someone laying a patio made. I can't rate Matthew Orchard enough. He went over and above to come out and help. Highly recommended. Many thanks for dealing with a potentially life threatening situation. "

Jane K, Colchester

"Matthew fitted several lights for me. Not only can I recommend his relability and workmanship, but also his professionalism, good humour and patience. It really was a pleasure dealing with him."

Francesca B, Colchester

"Thank you very much for all the work you did. You are very professional, polite and helpful and we genuinely appreciate your assistance as well as the useful advice you gave us. We will definitely be relying on your assistance if we need any further electrical work to be done in future."

Mr & Mrs N, Colchester

"Extremely nice gentleman, who managed to come out on an emergency call on a Sunday night to help fix our problem. Very much appreciated his help and will be used in the future."

Gavin D, Colchester

"You have to go a long way to find a good, honest, reliable tradesman and I have just had the privilege of the services of one of them. Matthew Orchard sorted out my non working downstairs lighting quickly and efficiently. I cannot thank him enough - a really lovely man, very highly recommended"
