Has anyone here ever called Mr. Sparky? If you are thinking about calling them...STOP. I called them recently and when the tech showed up at my house the first thing he did was looked at my panel. He said that the panel was over loaded because the main was hot to the touch. He then tried to talk me into upgrading my service which was going to cost me somewhere around 10 grand. Keep in mind that all I called them for was to add a outlet. I told him that the price was a little to much for me and he explained that once they did the work it would be covered for as long as I owned the home. I told him that for the price he quoted I could have the service changed out two or three times by someone else. I told him to have a nice day and he left. I called another contractor which had no problem adding the outlet for $150. When I told them what Mr. Sparky tried to talk me into they laughed and wanted to look at my panel. They took amp readings and said that the panel load was fine and that the only problem was that the screws on the main were loose. They tighten them up and charged me nothing to fix it. This was about four months ago and I have had no problems since. DO NOT USE MR. SPARKY. THEY WILL SCREW YOU OUT OF YOUR MONEY.

I have used them in the past and NEVER had anything like that happen to me. I thought the price was reasonable and the work was top quality. Sorry you had a bad experience with them. Because I recommend them to everyone.

Mr Sparky is just a marketing name. Each one is individually owned and operated.
In fact, one Mr Sparky will not honor the warranty of another.
They are obviously out of touch with the market if they wanted to charge you that.
Best to shop around and you'll find that prices are all over the place.
Probably the best price would be the lowest because the guy would know EXACTLY how much time it would take and charge you for that.
