My wife requires oxygen 24/7. I called Benchmark to get the job done. They wired the house to have a portable generator handle electricity in the home with a power outage.
Steve, Bobby and John were outstanding. The job was done perfectly and the extra time spent with me checking my new portable generator and explaining the entire system was very much appreciated.
These days a company like this is worth it's weight in gold, they are my company for electrical needs in the future.
The storm on Saturday, June 23rd, knocked out utility power for 10 straight hours. The temperature was around 94 degrees, with a heat index around 100. The generator was just what we needed and performed superbly, just as advertised. This was one of the best purchases and investments against unforeseen outages that we could have for our home.
Thanks for helping us to make the decision to purchase our generator. I’ve told others about making that decision. Hopefully, they will.
I just had my new Cummins RS30 whole-house generator installed by Benchmark. The entire team was highly professional---the salesman, the phone staff, the installers, and the activator. I could not be more pleased.
So pleased to hear you were pleased with the installation Reuben and thank you so much for the great review! Let us know if we can be of further assistance.
I was most pleased with my experience with Benchmark Electric. The Cummins generator is performing just as they said it would and has already served me during one brief power outage. The Benchmark employees are knowledgeable, courteous, dependable, and readily available to answer any questions. The purchase of this generator is one of best decisions I have made in many years!
Thank you so much, Roberta Mills, for your kind review!
We have been very impressed with all the employees we've had contact with. They are very professional and extremely hard workers!
Thanks, Jerri! We're glad to have you on board as a Benchmark Electric customer!
We purchased a generator for our home thru Benchmark Electric and could not be more pleased! The process from initial contact to job completion was smooth and exactly as promised. Everyone we came in contact with was courteous and professional in every way. We highly recommend Benchmark Electric for any electrical need you might have.
Thanks so much for the kudos, Jan Branum, and thank you for your business!
Bobby from Benchmark Electric came and serviced my generator yesterday. I can't say enough good about him - very professional and very knowledgeable!
Thanks, Steve Henderson. We're proud to have Bobby Ellis on our team and you as a customer of Benchmark Electric!
Quality products and service!
In response to a radio ad, I contacted Benchmark Electric regarding the installation of a standby generator. My call was returned by David Richey, the owner. David answered all of my initial questions, described the equipment and process in detail. In response to my wife's question about
In response to my wife's question about noise, David invited us to his facility so we could see and hear the equipment in operation.
We agreed to move forward. David kept us informed throughout the entire process. Bobby and Brian were the two electricians who did the actual installation. They were both friendly, professional and mindful of our property.
I couldn't have asked for a better experience.
We couldn't be happier with David Richey and his company Benchmark Electric!!
We contacted him in the fall with the desire to purchase a photovoltaic array, contract with TVA, and have our system installed in time to have it placed in service this tax year. David was very thorough in inspecting our current electric set-up, evaluating our electric needs, and making recommendations for the most effective and efficient system to fit our needs and our budget. He was very patient in answering all of our questions regarding the photovoltaic array and the contracting process with TVA, as well as what it takes to coordinate everything with MLG and W. David was able to get the system designed and submitted to TVA just in time to get us approved under the 2012 reimbursement terms (this was a big deal!) and before TVA had already approved the maximum that they were going to for the year.
David's crew was top notch. They showed up when they said they would, worked hard all day and cleaned up after themselves at the end of each evening before they left - all huge pluses!! David and his guys worked tirelessly - and even late into the evening, often in the rain and the cold - so that the system would be completed in time to be inspected and fully commissioned this year; he was even able to convince a subcontractor that needed to install a component necessary for the final inspection to do the same!
When a couple of changes needed to be made mid-stream (i.e. supplier issue), David - in an abundance of fairness - made sure that the terms were more beneficial to us than what had originally been agreed upon. We are very grateful and I honestly don't think we could have gotten better or more professional service with any other contractor.
We are very satisfied customers and cannot recommend Benchmark Electric enough.
Thanks so much for the kudos! We enjoyed the opportunity to be of service. Congratulations on your new solar energy system!
