Inspection / Repair

I initially called for an electrical inspection as per a request from my home owners insurance because I have some knob and tube wiring. Octavio came out and did the inspection. He found the knob and tube to be perfectly fine, but found a few area's that needed upgrading due to current electrical regulations. The work was completed a couple weeks later in a efficient and professional manner. With the upgrades completed I was able to satisfy the insurance company without having to re-do the knob and tube. I would definitely recommend Octavio and the whole team at WireChief.

I initially called in requesting an appointment for a certain time slot, but unfortunately due to an input issue on the company's end, the appointment was not properly slotted in. Despite this, Octavio was able to honour the original afternoon commitment and promptly resolved the breaker issue affecting my dishwasher, garburator and kitchen outlet. My partner met him at home and felt treated with respect even though the problem was simple, and greatly appreciated Octavio's additional insight on our existing connections and how to troubleshoot next time. The company is upfront about that $180 minimum troubleshooting fee, and while that might seem high, the respect and integrity that goes into the interaction are well worth it.

Electrical Safety

Octavio of Wirechief got back to me immediately. He was efficient, knowledgeable, helpful and polite. He inspected our building as well for electrical safety and provided advice on safety. I would highly recommend Octavio and Wirechief

Pot Lights, Burnaby

Thanks again to Octavio and his team for helping us out with our electrical work at our new home. We needed to add pot lights to our living room, add 2 additional outlets, install a bathroom fan, ceiling fan, and lighting fixture.All tasks were efficiently completed by the guys, with seemingly ease. We are so glad now to have all these updates done, so happy with the much needed extra light in our living room!And cheers to Kyle and Andrew, for your patience with my 4-year old son, who was very curious in what you were doing 🙂 Thanks again Wire Chief!

Knob & Tube, New Westminster, BC V3L 5R3

We were very satisfied (5) with the service we received from WireChief Electric from our first contact to the end of the work done at the house. Both Octavio and Kyle were very professional and patient, ensuring that we understood both what the options were and what they were doing. They arrived when promised, did the work required quickly and efficiently, and left the area in better shape that it was when they arrived.We will certainly recommend WireChief Electric to friends and acquaintances, and if we have electrical needs at other properties, we will call WireChief again.

Excellent! We hired Octavio and his crew to replace our knob and tube wiring in our basement renovation in a older character home in Kitsilano. They did a excellent job! The work was completed on time and on budget and passed our inspection with no questions asked. I highly recommend Wirechief and will continue to use them on our future projects. Excellent service from start to finish!!

Octavio saves the day.

About a month ago, on the Friday of a long weekend, we were getting prepared for a trip to Europe in the morning.As the other half was packing, I thought, well I'm done packing so I will change some old yellow outlets to nice new white ones. (I know - OCD, right?)After I replaced the 7th one, I turned to the ones on the kitchen counter and managed to not only knock out that circuit, but power to the entire condo.As my breakers were all fine, I started calling electricians to do a late night, long weekend house call.WireChief was the first to call back, and they set to dispatch someone to our home asap. Great.In the meantime, Octavio, my new hero, took the time to talk to me about what I had done to screw things up so royally. He was kind, patient, helpful and so generous with his time. He probably spent 30 minutes with me, at night, on a long weekend.Really long story short, and after I had to "break into" two electrical rooms on 2 different floors, Octavio guided me to fix my stupid screw up, he cancelled the dispatch, saved my European vacations, and likely my marriage.Thank you so much WireChief and Octavio!Even though I didn't end up spending a cent this time, you can be that when I do some renovations, WireChief will be my first, and only call. I will also be sharing Wirechief's amazing customer service with everyone who will listen.BestMurr

Baseboard Heaters

Octavio wire in some baseboard heaters for us. It was not an easy job as the access was through a dirt floor crawlspace. The work was completed on time and on budget. His crew cleaned up after themselves and I was very impressed with the meticulous nature of the work.


Hired WireChief to install 20+ pot lights throughout our townhouse. What impressed me the most was the crew that did the work. They spent a lot of time discussing and planning before they even made the first cut. The electricians were professional, well mannered, and took time to help me understand what was happening at each step of the job. They cleaned up at the end of each day and made sure the site was left in a clean, tidy state. They also prepped the site with plastic and builder's paper before they started.While Wire Chief was not the cheapest, their costs were very reasonable and considering the high level of service on a fixed cost basis I wouldn't hesitate to use them again.Kudos to the crew and big thanks to the Wire Chief.
