Specialist Electricians

DSS Electrical was founded in 2009 by Dan Seaber-Shinn to offer the professional service and knowledge of a large firm of Electrical contractors, with the friendliness and reliability offered by a smaller outfit.

With a team of experienced Electrician's who specialise in residential electrical installations, we are dedicated to providing customer service that is second to none. If you're looking for an Electrician in Cambridge to replace a light fitting or a full "smart home" automation we offer a broad selection of services. 

All the electrician's currently employed for DSS have been trained by Dan from their apprenticeship's until the current day. We all work the same way, the DSS way!

Our team of BS7671 qualified electricians and apprentices carry out all aspects of Domestic electrical works while our experienced office staff are on hand to deal with your initial job enquiry through to job completion.

We generally work anywhere within a 1 hour driving distance of Cambridge. However, we have been known to venture as far south as Devon and all the way up to Scotland for those special projects!

C Hamilton, Newmarket

My first encounter with Dan was when he came to repair a Heating system in one of my properties, 4 previous electrician's had tried and failed. Thankfully Dan managed to do so will little fuss. This has lead to a near on 10 year working relationship which continues to this day.

Dan and his team have completed numerous projects for me since 2009, including Kitchen and Bathroom renovations, Garden and Smart Lighting and even 3 New builds. Each new project has been easier than the last, thanks to the knowledge, patience and ability of the team at DSS. Their knowledge of market leading products is second to none.

It's truly a pleasure to deal with Dan. Such a courteous and driven individual who demands perfection and get's the absolute best out of his ever expanding team.

I would never look elsewhere for Electrical work, even if they do have a 4-6 week waiting list!!  

Hands down - Cambridgeshire's number 1.

Horrell Construction, Cambridge

For the past year Dan and his firm DSS have been our most organised and proficient sub-contractor that we have had the pleasure of dealing with.

We have used them on many of our smaller jobs - works to Kitchens, Utilities etc.

We have always been incredibly impressed with how neat and tidy Dan and his employees are and how they are always thinking of how to help other trades on site.

We feel that Dan and his team have become a massive asset for us and we look forward to many more years working with Dan and his team and would never hesitate to recommend them.

P Lewis, Hertfordshire

It is not usual these days to either expect or receive an excellent service from any supplier of goods or services. However, you have exceeded all our expectations on all accounts.

When requested to visit us in an emergency, you visited us after hours and stayed till late to make safe and prepare the electrics for the plumber to return the following day. You have provided an outstanding service which we would feel happy to recommend to our friends and business colleagues.

You have carried the work out in an efficient, friendly and no nonsense manner. I don't know many contractors who will stay late in the evening to help their customers. I am sure many of your competitors could learn a thing or two from how you deal with your customers!
