“Amazing care and service as always!!”

November 29, 2023

Thank you so much Kerstin, amazing care and service as always!! I’ve paid the invoice now (sorry yesterday was manic).

Was lovely to be able to SEE in the bathroom last night and feel like I wasn’t going to be electrocuted doing my hair using the wall socket in the bathroom too this morning.

Appreciate your quick and kind help as always – also so happy that the guys went over and above in refilling old holes left by the old light fitting etc – thank you.

Have a lovely day,



“My son was most impressed with Alec’s approach”

September 28, 2023

In 2021, I asked a friend in the Malvern if she knew of a good electrician, and she provided me with Alec Porter’s name & SWAP Electrics. Alec and a helper (name unknown) came to my house and replaced 4 LED downlights in my bathroom from inside the bathroom, and the cost was reasonable, (the last sparkie had to climb into the roof and the other problems continued).

This is when I knew, these guys know what they are doing.

In 2023 another dilemma occurred.

My son’s unit electric hot water service died. So who do you call?

Although my son’s unit was out of Alec’s usual “sphere of operation”, we arranged to meet with my son at his unit on a Saturday morning (as Alec’s put it “on the other side of the river”). My son was most impressed with Alec’s approach. The scope of work was discussed which included replacing a 1960’s switchboard, and the demise of the HWS, and replacement of 1960’s Fluro???with LED downlights. Alec said I would have a quote by the weekend. It arrive Sunday from Kerstin. With her help we agreed on a scheduled day – the next Wed. between 7:30-8am.

Come Wednesday Alec, Jack & Nick arrived on site on time, and Jack & Nick went to work. Lights were replaced (and look fantastic)). The switchboard replace and a certificate of safety inspection by 1pm.

Alas, the HWS was beyond redemption, identifying obsolesce had taken its toll. However Jack, who dared venture into the ceiling, kindly provided me with mobile phone photos of the ‘dead’ HWS, which then enabled me to take the next step of finding a reliable plumber to undertake the next task.

Swap have been my electricians for a few years and I wouldn’t go anywhere else! Such responsive friendly help from Kerstin in head office and the ‘boys’ / men! Always professional friendly quick at diagnosing issues and happy to go the extra mile. Alec and his team are reliable, great with communication and I feel confident and safe in their hands. Thanks from me and my daughter.

Fast and effective on a messy job

May 21, 2022

We needed data points installed in two bedrooms for working at home and linked back to the entry point. Swap Electrics quickly arranged a time to inspect the job and gave us a quote that day. The price was good and we accepted it. They said they would be able to do the job the next week and, in fact, it was done just a couple of days later when they had a vacancy. So fast service across the board.

It wasn’t an easy job. The two rooms were concrete so hammer drilling was required and we had no underfloor access so they had to access via the roof and even there the clearance was quite low. We do apologize that there were rats in the roof. The Swap Electrics team completed the job in a couple of hours, vacuumed up the concrete dust and everything worked fine. The guys were very polite and helpful and obviously knew what they were doing.


“They took great care with my house and completed the work quickly and efficiently”

September 29, 2021

Kerstin and Alec from Swap were so professional and helpful. I needed my property rewired and new lights, switches and sockets installed. They took great care with my house and completed the work quickly and efficiently. Alec was great with advising what needed to be improved to meet current standards and providing advice on the appropriate lighting for the different rooms. I am so pleased with their work and highly recommend them.

“Very personable approach to their clients”

February 28, 2020

I have employed the services of Swap Electrics, headed by Alec and staffed by his efficient team, for several years now on various electrical fit-outs on not only my own home, but also on several other domestic properties in the inner south-eastern suburbs of Melbourne. Each of these contracts, involving construction and/or renovation of domestic properties, have been completed very efficiently, professionally and of equal importance, in a very timely manner. I highly recommend SWAP ELECTRICS for any future electrical works on domestic and commercial premises; their ethics, general business acumen and very personable approach to their clients is indeed impressive and very professional.

“SWAP couldn’t have been more helpful”

December 1, 2019

SWAP did a fairly big job for me in 2010. 8 years later I had a few minor issues come up and the guys at SWAP couldn’t have been more helpful. They came out and updated my circuit board at no charge. This is a team that stands behind their customers even years later.

“Very competitively priced”

May 29, 2019

I have been using SWAP for 5 years. They have helped me through numerous, complicated renovations and always find solutions for me. Most recently they rewired my 1950s house in Bentleigh. I’m always so happy with the customer service and the job they do and it’s very competitively priced. The electricians are always on time, have never canceled of changed the time of a job and leave the place spotless. Couldn’t recommend them highly enough and I would never contemplate using anyone else!

“Always our first port of call for any electrics we need done”

January 22, 2019

My wife and I have used SWAP electrics before and once again had no hesitation in contacting them to undertake our latest electrical work. As in the past they were on time and their workmen efficient, professional and willing to answer all our queries as asked and in a manner easily understood. Standard of work unquestionable and at the end of the job all work sites cleaned up. We would have no hesitation in recommending SWAP Electrics to undertake any electrical work. In fact they are always our first port of call for any electrics we need done. Thanks SWAP once again.
