Plugged in to the Clarence community

WHEN it comes to electricians, finding the right one is important. Very important.

That's why we could think of no one better to recommend the best sparky in the Clarence Valley than our readers. And we weren't surprised when we got more than 160 comments and nominations on our Facebook poll.

Over 20 businesses and individuals got a mention in the vote, but there was no overlooking Advanced Electrical and Data with the most mentions and likes.

When we rang Jarrad Hearfield with the results, he was pleasantly surprised with the news.

"It's awesome,” he said.

"It's good that people notice we try and do the right thing toward them.”

So, what makes Jarrad's company popular in the Clarence Valley?

"I think it has a lot to do with us trying to do the right job, to be honest and reliable,” he said.

"No one likes waiting around for a tradie when they're running late, so we're very mindful of giving clients a ring and giving them realistic times.”

Perhaps it also could be the wide variety of services?

"We cover all commercial and residential works, data cabling, fibre optics, phones, television systems to name a couple,” he said.

"We also offer an after hours service.”

While the company is barely 12 months old, Jarrad said he and Mitch his apprentice had been flat out from day one.

"Ever since we started everyone's just giving us a chance, giving us an opportunity to have a go,” he said.

"We didn't even get a chance to advertise, because people have found us through word of mouth.”

Coming in second place for the reader vote was Stuart Ware Electricial in South Grafton.

Penny Smith called him "The best sparky ever!”

In third place was Cangai Electrical, with Graeme Essex suggesting that they are "the best there is.”

Close behind is John Walters Electrical in fourth spot.

"John Walters electrical has done all the work for our house,” Shari Pitkin said.

"Highly recommend.”

And in fifth place, South Grafton's McGrath Electrical and Data.
