Recently moved into a new and house and needed some plugs moved on a couple of walls. Did a search and liked the reviews I found on Barney’s. Called and to my surprise Barney actually answered. He said he was on vacation and would have one of his guys give me a call. That happened and we set an appointment. To my surprise again got a call from his guy saying he had an opening a day earlier and wanted to know if he could come by. It didn’t work for me but on the original ally scheduled date there were 2 guys at my door 15 minutes early. Polite, courteous, and professional. Very reasonable prices as well. Highly recommend. I’ll call them first for all my future electrical needs.
