South Charlotte Services
I recently used South Charlotte Service to mount the TV on the wall, I was quoted a very reasonable price and job was completed as promised without any issues. Extreme care was taken while mounting as it was mounted above the fire place, got six quotes from different contractors and this quote was more realistic cost to the work that needs to be done and everything was handled in a very professional way, he behaved in a respectful and cordial way when he was at my house which is very critical for me and my wife. When John was working on mounting, I came to know about other services his company is providing and I used his service to fix couple of long pending handyman type of work, I definitely recommend his services to my friends and colleagues as I am sure he will do a great job to my friends requests too. Great job John! One thing that comes to my mind when I think of his service is “Truly Professional” and gets the job done!

I called South Charlotte services after finding them online and after speaking to John for the first time I knew I chose the right company to hang my TV above our fireplace he was very knowledgeable and gave good advice on what needed to be done and made good recommendations he never tried to upsell any parts or services like most companies normally do they were reasonably priced and very professional from start to finish I definitely plan on calling them back for some future projects and have already recommended their services to a friend

I had a great experience with SCS helping me with a wall mounted flat screen and running the cables through the wall. John is very honest, does great work at a very reasonable price and I couldn't be any happier with the final outcome. I would recommend SCS to anyone who needs any of the services they offer. I will definitely keep him on my list of go-to people for similar projects.

John and Lisa installed two TVs for us today. They were absolutely great. Easy to work with, extremely knowledgeable, and consummate professionals. John even accommodated a last minute request to address a small shelf project. We will absolutely be reaching out to them in the future for additional home projects. First class all the way.

Beam Electric
I picked them off of Google because I pass them every day. What an awesome choice. After 2 return visits under warranty for my troublesome original fixture, they spent several hours making it right, and did not charge me for the labor or parts. I highly recommend them.

I am very happy with the work that was done in my home. I had my kitchen re-wired, can lights and under cabinet lights installed. It looks amazing and I couldn't be happier. I will definitely use them in the future.

Light Fixture Outlet
Best prices you can find. Displays are very crowded because they have so much inventory in a small little space but they are VERY nice and if you find something you like you will definitely save $$$.

I was very pleased with the work that was done on my home. I had front porch lights installed, as well as a ceiling fan. I thought quality work was done. Much appreciated!
Tips & Advices
Keep the following tips in mind:
  • Do not operate any electrical equipment while sitting or standing in water.
  • Don't overload extension cords or surge protectors.
  • Put caps on your electrical outlets if you have small children.
  • Call an electrician if you notice your sockets or switches are warm to the touch, discolored or if they make noise.
  • Keep electrical cords away from stoves, ovens and other sources of heat.
  • Do not use an appliance that has a frayed cord.
  • Do not staple extension cords into place or cover them with carpets or furniture.
  • When using extension cords, make sure to unwrap them before plugging them in.
  • Don't overuse extension cords. Have an electrician install extra outlets if you need a power source closer to you.
  • Only use light bulbs with the correct wattage for your lamps and light fixtures.
  • Contact a licensed electrician if you frequently blow fuses, since this can be a sign of an electrical wiring problem.
  • Have an electrician look at your fuse box to ensure you have the right size fuses and circuit breakers. The wrong size fuse or breaker can be a fire hazard.
  • If you have fault circuit interrupters installed in your electrical panel, make sure you test them at least once a month by turning them on and off.
It can cost from $40-$100 an hour depending on the job. This does not include additional costs for parts or trip fees. Make sure to ask in advance what they charge for or if they will provide a free quote.
In order to become a full-fledged professional, a person must undergo an apprenticeship with master and journeyman electricians. An apprentice needs 8,000 hours of practical work before graduating to the journeyman level. If an apprentice reaches journeyman status, he or she can complete most electrical work, but cannot design it until completing more testing along with 2,000 more on-the-job hours.
Yes. While all electricians need a license, not all of them do the same types of jobs.
  • Outside: These types of electricians work outdoors on electrical lines that connect to power plants.
  • Inside: Inside experts typically focus on commercial and industrial buildings that require a lot of power.
  • Residential: Residential electricians work with low-voltage systems and wiring to install fuse boxes and light fixtures.
Watch out for contractors that greatly underbid other electricians. If the price seems too good to be true, it probably is. Also, always remember to get the estimate in writing before settling on a company.
