CHARLOTTE – Greg Bartholomy started working as an electrician in 1994 for a big electrical contracting company but found that it just wasn’t fulfilling—he wanted to work more closely with customers and provide a service that kept customers safe and was reasonably priced. So in 2008, during the recession, Greg took a leap of faith, quit his job, and started his own business—GB Electrical Services LLC. At first, it was just him, his wife Nicki, and his truck, but word soon spread, and within the first week (after only two days), GB Electric was working for property contractors, realtors, and other residential properties. Fifteen years later, GB Electrical Services LLC is still going strong and has grown into a small business with fifteen employees, six vans, and a pick-up truck.
Greg and Nicki Bartholomy take their business very seriously. All of their employees have completed background checks and drug testing to ensure that the people they send into their customers’ homes are safe and professional. The company uses texting to keep clients appraised of services, including a text sent 30 minutes before the technician’s arrival that includes a photo of the employee and a short bio. All employees wear GB Electrical Services LLC uniforms and drive vans embellished with the company logo. In addition, all employees bring drop cloths and floor savers to protect your home from dirt and damage.
GB Electrical Services LLC uses “Straightforward Pricing.” This means that they have set prices for different services. You pay a fixed fee for the service you request, no hidden fees, and no surprises. In addition, the GB Electrical Services company has a warehouse of electrical parts at their headquarters and three larger sized (think Amazon delivery truck) vans with a complete inventory of components that are categorized and organized for easy retrieval. This means that the technician will likely have all the parts they need to complete the job—and if they don’t, GB Electrical Services LLC will send another team member to the job to deliver the piece so that no time is wasted.
Between “straightforward pricing” and efficient, professional technicians, GB Electrical Services LLC consistently receives five-star ratings from their many satisfied customers. They aim to work with clients to address concerns, determine precisely what they are looking for, and complete the job quickly and to the highest standards. Some of their services include installing and maintaining Generac whole-home generators, service changes, providing power to outdoor buildings, EV electric car charger installations, hot tubs, pools, lighting upgrades, recessed lighting, replacing plugs and switches, and troubleshooting. In addition, all service calls receive a free whole-home safety evaluation where technicians check all outlets, panels, and other items in their inspection safety list. This service is also available for purchase on its own for $69.
The most common electrical problem GB Electrical Services sees is poorly wired plugs with loose connections, usually from recently constructed homes. This is a simple fix: wrapping the wire in place in the plug rather than having it sit in place as most contractors leave it. GB Electrical Services recommends that you have a safety check performed on your home at least once yearly, especially with lighted pools. If you’ve got a question, GB Electrical has the answer. Their phones are answered 24/7 by real people who can get you the necessary solutions.
GB Electrical Services LLC celebrated its 15th anniversary with a ribbon cutting by the Chamber of Commerce and a donation party at Sunflower Club/Sunflower Cafe in Mint Hill. They also held a donation drive for the Sunflower Club/Cafe of Mint Hill during Mint Hill, which earned customers a 15% discount on services.
Greg and Nicki Bartholomy and the GB Electrical Services LLC team would like to thank the city of Mint Hill for their unwavering support. GB Electrical Services enjoys being an active member of the town and participating in local events and charities. As Mint Hill residents, Greg and Nicki feel blessed to be part of such a warm and welcoming community.
