Steve Wilford attended to the extensive electrical work in our Ponsonby villa, as part of a major renovation some five years ago. Because I was based in London at the time, I was unable to supervise him. It was necessary to communicate our needs entirely by phone and email. The fact he carried out the work exactly as instructed and kept us fully informed at all times testifies to his excellent communication skills.
We have subsequently been glad to engage Steve on a diversity of tasks, most notably, electrical planning and installation of a dedicated home cinema project, with special lighting demands because of its art deco character. Further, he brilliantly sorted out the cinema’s airflow system without resorting to the easiest and most expensive options that lesser tradespeople would have immediately recommended.
Steve readily understood whatever was needed and has always delivered exactly what we’d hoped for. I have no hesitation in recommending Steve Wilford as an absolute professional, with an orientation towards solutions rather than problems.

In 2016 Steve Wilford quoted for and installed 6 x stand-alone Air Conditioning systems to heat and cool our home in Mt Eden, Auckland as required. The installs were as discreet as practical and we have thoroughly enjoyed the warm winters and cool summers following their installation. Steve also upgraded our main switchboard to allow for the new circuits and to improve the safety of our home.
One of the units had a noise issue following installation, however, Steve attended to and sorted the issue in a timely way.
Steve delivered what he promised, we were delighted with his excellent service and we have no reservation in recommending him to other people and businesses.
Steve has worked for me on several projects, both commercial (retail) and residential, over the last few years, ranging from new build wiring and electrical installation through to re-wiring ’vintage’ buildings.
Steve’s work is high quality, he’s reliable, and completely trustworthy. I have been completely happy with the electrical work on all of the projects.
Steve’s billing is detailed - you can see exactly what you’re paying for, and how much it cost. And his estimates are pretty much spot on with the final bill.
I’ve been particularly impressed with Steve’s communication skills. Steve routinely gets in touch over any issues which arise (typically the case with re-wiring, where there are always surprises hidden behind the walls). He offers well-thought through suggestions and options, and gives the opportunity to consider future-proofing for future development. He is flexible with scheduling around client commitments - and will juggle his schedule to accommodate yours. He’s a neat worker, cleans up his workspace, and creates the minimum of mess (always a consideration in a family home with kids around).
He does what he says he’ll do, arrives when he says he will, and keeps you completely informed over the progress of the project.
