We hired Dan Wood Electrical after an impressive referral. We needed a complete electrical installation for Smiths Bar in Matakana. Dan gave us amazing results – if he wasn’t so busy I would use him exclusively!
I highly recommend him in all areas of electrical. He has creative answers to problems, a good eye for detail, thorough with communication and honest when it comes to invoice day. A great service by a bloody nice fella.”

Dan Wood Electrical is trustworthy and the quality of their work is excellent. We absolutely recommend Dan Wood Electrical to anyone who is looking for quality and excellence service.”

I chose Dan because he came highly recommended. Dan did all the electrical work for our new build, with a fantastic result of very well thought out design and practicality provided by Dan. Some challenges came with lighting a 5.5m high curved living area which turned out even better than expected.
Dan was also the only tradesman in our build to keep under budget! He was also so easy to communicate with. Dan’s the man if you want quality and great value. We highly recommend him.”
— Eugene and Helen Sims, homeowners, Kaipara.
When we were asking around for a good electrician someone mentioned Dan. Over the years he has designed outdoor lighting for our property, and numerous other electrical jobs.
He has been brilliant with our rental properties, always there with a ready smile to deal with their problems. He finds solutions that we had not thought of, which often saves us money too. We definitely recommend you use him.”
— John and Louisa Gowing, homeowners and rental property owners, Warkworth.
Finding a reliable and trustworthy Warkworth electrician isn’t always an easy task. We contracted Dan Wood Electrical to wire our new home because it was immediately clear that he was professional and knowledgeable.
He discussed our options with us and made suggestions and advised us on future proofing our home. We found Dan and his team always to be friendly and helpful and would use him again without question. He’s such a nice guy!”
— Helen Yorke, Snells Beach
As Warkworth residents it was important to us to have a local electrician do our renovation work for us. We asked Dan to do the job having heard about the quality of his work, the creativity he brings to jobs, and his attention to detail. Throughout our project he understood of our specific requirements and design.
Dan’s portion of our renovation was completed on time at every juncture, and in a very tidy and professional manner. I would have no reservation recommending Dan to anyone with substantial electrical work to be done on their home while living in it.”
— Ainsley Sinclair Palairet, homeowner, Warkworth
We began the exciting business of building a new home in 2014. In amongst all the decisions about what we wanted, what our needs were and how would our budget reach to any of it, was the question of an electrician. The builders recommended their own electrician, however, we had heard that Dan Wood was the sort of bloke who found no problem too much trouble to address, knew what he was doing and was honest.
Our experience of Dan was fantastic. He met with us at our convenience, provided great ideas and solutions, discussed openly what the costs were (nothing hidden) and things we could to do to work to our budget. The whole planning process with Dan was a breeze. When it came to the build, he worked in with the project manager’s directions and kept us in the loop all the way through. The lighting and electrical in our house is wonderful. We are so pleased with the outcome and really can’t speak highly enough of Dan’s skills and professionalism.”
— Steve and Catherine Wynne, homeowner, Snells Beach
We have used Dan for several jobs, including a couple which were reasonably complex – installing a water filter, moving a power pole and renovating a studio – and which involved other contractors such as Vector, Electrix and MobiAir.
Dan is so helpful, efficient and solution oriented. Nothing is ever too much of an issue or problem and he can be 100% relied upon to get the job done to a high standard. Dan is a pleasure to have around – he is positive, friendly, highly motivated and hard working. We would recommend Dan Wood Electrical without hesitation.”
— Miranda and James Mizen, Whangateau
We have recently completed a new architecturally designed house build near Warkworth. The new house has underfloor heating and a hybrid solar system adding to the complexity of the electrical solution – Dan took these challenges totally in his stride. To add to this, our architects left out designing the lighting plan so we had to put one together as part of the build.
Dan was magic to work with. He was thorough and detailed in his approach and happy to challenge our thinking using his previous experience. He was very thoughtful in his suggestions as well as being practical and creative. We were so impressed with his knowledge and especially that of alternative products that met our expectations; it is clear he has a thirst for new information regarding his industry, a sign of a true professional.
I observed his ability to listen carefully and then diffuse tensions in one on-site meeting after an older workman with entrenched ideas was incorrect in his summation of a technical issue. Dan’s life experience including working in various overseas jobs has equiped him well to work with a variety of people including co-contractors as well as clients.
Dan is incredibly easy to work with, flexible, personal, fun but totally professional. He and Bailee have built a fantastic business, we are just so pleased with their contribution to our build and would unreservedly recommend them.”
— Chris and Margy Kriechbaum, Whitmore Road

We first met Dan Wood in January 2017 when we were in the process of deciding what electrical work would be needed in our partly finished house. He advised us on what power points should be installed, the interior and exterior lighting, and our requirements for entertainment and the internet. His workmanship proved to be excellent, not only during the installation phase but also after we had moved into our new house when further work was required. Dan is courteous, knowledgeable and cheerful, always with a ready smile. Where would we be without Dan? In the dark!”
