always been very reliable and responded promptly to both reactive and emergency calls, I would
highly recommend their services.
Jim Shakesby Blue Seal Technical service Manager
We had an issue with our large gas oven and had a couple of companies attend to fix the problem. Each of them advised us as it was a commercial unit their domestic skills would not be sufficient to solve the problem. The matter was urgent as we had a Gentleman’s Dinner for 80 to host in the near future… no oven - no food. We contacted the manufacturer of the oven and they recommended JAC Electrical Services. Once contacted their engineer soon attended and within minutes was able to advise us of the problem & the solution. The spare parts were ordered and he was back within a few days to complete the repair. I dealt with Stephen on the phone and Tony was the engineer, I cannot praise them enough for the professional manner in which they conducted themselves and for a job well done. I would certainly use them again should the situation arise.
