    What our customers say

    We have had quite a few dealings with the Company in the past. Mike and his workforce have always been very professional, efficient, polite and completely trustworthy. Consequently, we now always use Michael Surbey and his company as single source for all our electrical and plumbing work

    The company has just completed a full refurbishment of one of our bathrooms. Each member of his workforce was such a perfectionist that we did not have to say anything. They even left the house in a clean condition.

    We could not have enough praise for the company and would not hesitate to recommend them.

    Dr Ashish Dasgupta

    Cambridge Discount Electrical have always done a first rate job for us and I’d thoroughly recommend them. When we bought our first house in 2013 they installed gas central heating and rewired it. Then when we moved house in 2019 they installed gas central heating, rewired and installed a new bathroom. They did a great job, were very professional, efficient and were a pleasure to work with. Thank you!


    I’m writing to say how much we have valued you and your team’s professionalism over many years.

    Your last job for us, at our daughters flat, which was a completed re-wire, went very smoothly and we particularly appreciated the continuity of operative (Glen) and conscientious work scheduling. It can get unbelievably frustrating when a contractor sends different staff, intermittently, who each scratch their heads wondering what/where their predecessor was up to.

    We’re almost done building and renovating now, but you still keep a watchful eye on the lets which we would also like to thank you for.

    I have used Cambridge Discount Electrical several times over a period of years for everything from fitting ceiling and outdoor lights to installing a new central heating boiler and have always been impressed with the quality of the work. The company is reliable, has a great team and very high standards of workmanship.
