Looking for a reliable and affordable service electrician?


We had a major problem with the power supply to our house that required extensive work to resolve . Thankfully Deadshort were able to attend first thing the next day. David the electrician was fantastic in keeping me updated on the progress of the job and explaining things to me in terms a layman could understand. Since then James has been very helpful in assisting us with our insurance claim. Deadshort will be our first call whenever we need electrical works in the future and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to others

I first used Deadshort Electrical when I was doing some house renovations, they upgraded my meter box and rewired the new section of my house. At all times the electricians made sure that my house could remain running while the upgrades were carried out, very clean and professional. I was so impressed that I now use them for any of my business needs as well.Aaron- Modbury Heights
We recently had Solar Panels installed and as a result had to replace our out-dated meter box in order to complete the installation safely. We contacted Deadshort Electrical and from the initial contact through to having the work completed we were impressed by both the work and the service we received. The electrician arrived on time, was extremely efficient, knowledgeable and professional. The work was completed efficiently and with minimal disruption and was left clean and tidy and we were pleasantly surprised with the total cost of the service. We would not hesitate to recommend Deadshort Electrical and would certainly use them for any future electrical requirements. Karen & Robert

I had very poor TV reception due to aerial issues. I rang Deadshort and right from the initial phone call the service was excellent. The Deadshort representative asked questions to see if I could fix it myself and then promptly organised an electrician to come and fix the issue that day. I couldn’t be happier with the service.

We have used Deadshort Electrical many times in the last ten or so years for our power points, smoke alarms, house solar system and recently our kitchen upgrade. We have always found the Electricians to be friendly, prompt and courteous, our house was always left tidy.

We have recommended them to family and friends, who have also been happy with the service received.

I recently contacted Deadshort Electrical to obtain a quotation to supply and install sensor floodlighting to my premises.

I also obtained a quotation from a well know Electrical contractor.

The initial conversation on the phone with the Service Manager James Law was surprisingly pleasant and was followed when he came onsite to investigate the job prior to receiving his quotation.

The quotation from Deadshort was emailed to me the same day. I was immediately pleased with the quotation which i saw was very fair and reasonable.

I waited 4 days for the second quotation to arrive from the other bushiness. I was shocked at the second quote and immediately contacted James at Deadshort to accept his quote and arrange a suitable time.

James said the business would ring me prior to a contractor coming onsite, which occurred as promised.

I found the contractor pleasant and businesslike. 

A pleasing aspect was that the lights worked the first time and there was no call back.

I am delighted to be able to recommend Deadshort Electrical and the Service Manager James Law as a first contact should you require electrical work at your premises.

We had an urgent job to organise and a colleague recommended Deadshort Electrical. Their service was outstanding, they met me on-site that day, quoted the work, which was very reasonably priced and completed the job on time. They also attended to some other issues we had whilst on site, found a solution and resolved the issues within the hour. Their communication and feedback was brilliant and I would have no hesitation in using them again or recommending in the future. Mike Weaver – Manager KPARK
I recently had some work performed by Deadshort Electrical and the service was great from day one. James Law attended my premises to advise and quote on the install of a Mains/Generator change over switch and was knowledgeable and took into account what I wanted. The quote was prompt and once accepted a date was set for the install. The electrician arrived on time and was very professional with the work detailed to perfection. The end result one happy customer and just what I wanted. I can recommend Deadshort Electrical for reliable prompt efficient service. Look forward to dealing with them in the future.

Deadshort Electrical helped rescue our Christmas after an internal fault power failure late on Christmas Eve. Prompt attendance, neat and efficient, friendly and polite, excellent follow-up and appropriate fees are hallmarks of our experience. Highly recommended and we will keep the contact details safe should we need help again. Thank you Deadshort Team. Andrew  – Brighton
Due to run a of power failures in Adelaide of late we decided to purchase a backup generator. To ensure that the generator could power up the house we knew we had to have a change over switch installed in the switchboard. Contacted three electricians/companies. Two stated that they didn't do change over switches and the other never bothered to return our call. Contacted the company, "Deadshort", and spoke to James Law who was only too pleased to come out and have a look at our situation, gave us a quote that we were happy with. We are impressed with the quality of the work done and comforted to know that we won't be going without power when the grid goes down in future. Rick, the electrician doing the installation spent the day working in 42c temperatures, certainly a very trying day for him but a professional job done. Would have no hesitation in recommending this company and will use them again ourselves.Roy  – Salisbury
I had various electrical work quoted up, however when the job was being done, there were a few issues that arose. James and Lee worked together to ensure the best possible outcome, still ensuring all the work was completed. I was thoroughly happy with their work and professionalism and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them or use their services again. Amanda  – Salisbury East
I booked an electrician for today earlier this week. He arrived a few minutes before 8 ie right on time. He was an absolute delight to deal with and was everything you would hope a trades person would be - friendly, helpful, polite and extremely professional. Thank you for allocating our work to Jonathon. We could not speak highly enough of our experience with him today and would have no hesitation in recommending Deadshort and Jonathon to anyone in our circle. Lynne and Leigh
I first contacted Deadshort Electrical on the 14th May to get a quote on some electrical work that was required on my son's home, i also contacted several other companies to get quotes from them as well. Deadshort was the only company that actually got back to me. met with me at my son's house and emailed me a quote within 24hrs - after discussing the quote with my son, and the disgust that i felt toward the other 3 companies at not getting back to me, we chose to go with Deadshort. Work commenced on the 17th May where i met Anton and went through everything that was needed to be rectified - quite a lot of work - Anton was professional, helpful and assisted and answered all of my questions. They arrived at the time they specified, cleaned up any mess that had been made and kept me informed as to all aspects of the work. Work was completed on the 23rd May, at which time Anton explained everything that had been done, that everything was now 'compliant' and also had cleaned any and all mess up. I contacted James again on the 23rd October as some more work was required and once again, received a quote the same day, accepted it and work commenced on the 3rd November and was completed on the same day, once again by Anton. We were kept informed as to what was happening, contacted if there was a problem. I cannot speak more highly of this company, both James and Anton were professional, helpful and went above and beyond in their assistance to me. I will only ever use Deadshort Electrical and will only recommend this company if asked by any of my friends. Thank you James and thank you Anton, jobs well done and my son is extremely pleased with your work. Tracey - Rosewater
