Feedback from a few of our great customers in Canterbury, Herne Bay and the surrounding areas.

  • Mrs Chambers, Herne Bay

    Explained thoroughly what needed doing and how much it would cost, carried out work in a friendly, efficient manner.

  • C Best, Canterbury

    I cannot express our delight in finding this electrical contractor. These two brilliant young men completed this huge job quickly and efficiently and exactly on schedule. We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this company. The job they did and the way they carried it out was excellent. Thank you so much.

  • Mrs Bloxham, Herne Bay

    Excellent service. He even polished a unit he had to move where the TV is!

    Left no mess at all and hoovered everywhere.

  • Mr Still, Westgate on Sea

    Could not fault, would not recommend anyone else. Communications were fantastic, felt valued as a customer, very honest and open. Really Really pleased, would certainly use again.

  • Mr Hardy, Sittingbourne

    Very good service, they arrived at time they stated to me.

  • S Francis, Canterbury

    3 Core are very reliable and very responsive to customer needs.

  • Mr Murray, Whitstable

    Excellent service, good quality work and reliable.

  • Mrs Wooding, Canterbury
    I have used 3core on several occasions, (they were recommended to me from a friend) and I’ve always been very satisfied with their work. They have carried out new installations for me, but have been equally happy to sort out problems (such as our electricity cutting out for no apparent reason!). I have always found their quotes to be reasonable and transparent. One thing, which is a pet hate of mine, is time keeping, and these guys, if they are ever late, which is rare, take the time to let you know, which for some reason most don’t! I’d definitely recommend them.
  • Mrs Robertson, Herne Bay

    Very good work thanks.

  • Miss Small, Whitstable
    Replace wall socket fit wall light and replace two strip lights with pendant.
    Great service very friendly, finished quickly and cleaned up after himself. Very pleased as came on day of call out due to exposed wires on cracked wall socket, which was essential as I have two toddlers in the house and was very worried about their safety.
  • Tony Browne General Building, Whitstable

    Rob came when he said he would and fitted his work around the other trades so that the job flowed. His work was excellent. Everything was so clean and tidy. I have no hesitation in recommending Rob and his company and will be using 3core again.

  • Mrs Fisher, Whitstable

    Well executed – wiring sorted out and problem clearly explained. A fair charge.

  • Mrs Hall, Herne Bay

    Second time I have used 3core and will always use in the future and would certainly recommend them.

  • D Scott, Canterbury

    Very happy with the electrical work, exactly as required. Both friendly and professional and tidied up well on final day.

  • Mr Austen, Chartham
    Full house re-wire.
    What can I say? Chris and Rob were polite, courteous, if they said they would turn up at 8:30am, they would be there at 8:30am. They completed the work in 4 days, cleared any mess up before leaving at the end of each day. They communicated any concerns and issues at all times. We will definitely be recommending these two to friends and family.
  • Mr Bartlett, Herne Bay

    Excellent service and reliability. Will certainly recommend 3core. A professional service.

    I would recommend this company.

  • Mr McCabe, Canterbury


  • Mr Howarth, Whitstable
    Rob and Chris came at relatively short notice to check my built-in oven that had stopped working. After checking that their was power into the unit they were able to man-handle the offending oven out of its fittings to check the back and were able to immediately tell me that the power input point had burnt out. Whilst not something they could repair, they immediately put me in touch with a company that specialises in replacement parts for ovens and assured me that if I needed their assistance to explain anything that they would be happy to call. Finishing off by replacing the oven in its fitting and tidying up around their work area.
  • Mrs Sutherland, Ashford

    Security light fitted and tested to satisfactory range. Light fittings checked and also loft wiring. Fault located and dealt with.

  • Mrs Cambridge, Herne Bay
    Work completed and site left clean and tidy. This is the second time we have used ‘3 Core’ and we would not hesitate to recommend them.
  • Mrs A Harake, Whitstable

    3 core came to me on recommendation from a friend who has used their services on several occasions. I was worried as it really was a small job – but a job beyond my capabilities! Rob came and sorted the problem immediately. To his credit – he did nothing to make me feel inadequate (even though most people would probably have been able to sort the problem out themselves!). I will definitely use 3 core again and will definitely recommend them to others.

    Very punctual, very helpful, worked to a very high standard.

  • M Mitchell, Canterbury

    I got a reply to my enquiry within half an hour. He visited within 2 days to give an estimate and did most of the job the same afternoon. He did an excellent competent job, including re-jigging our extractor fan wiring! I was impressed by how friendly and polite he was, and willing to do a relatively small job. I would recommend them to anyone.

  • Mr Gander, Herne Bay

    Reliable, trustworthy and very efficient.

  • Mrs Hutchings, Canterbury

    3core have achieved an excellent ‘ job of all jobs’ to update the dangerous electrics at our rented bungalow. They were extremely professional – nothing was too much trouble. They have achieved the unachievable. We are no longer plunged into darkness when the lights all fuse. We are no longer scared to touch a light switch. The fuses in our appliances no longer fuse – no more exploding hairdryers or melting irons!  The work has been achieved to a very, very high standard. We now feel thoroughly safe and would recommend them as a firm without hesitation. They are very talented and courteous professionals.  Our job was very daunting but they rewired, rechecked and updated everything. We cannot thank them enough and they did not complain once no matter how many times they had to climb over our belongings and us and our four children! They even brought their own teabags!! We would use them again without hestitation.

  • Gas Safety Plus, Whitstable

    Thanks Rob and Chris for sorting out a boiler electrical supply at the job in Whitstable. Appreciate you doing it at such short notice. Got us out of trouble and helped the whole project stay on schedule. Much appreciated.

  • Mr Dorman, Canterbury

    Excellent service, great advice, improved the solution.

  • Ms Glazebrook, Bridge

    I know you’re a quality outfit, that’s never been in question.  In terms of brand i guess I view you as ‘Marks and Spencer’

Keep an eye out for our vans in Canterbury and throughout Kent!
