DQ Electrical Pty Ltd Solar Reviews

We are currently overseas, but the system is to be installed on May 22. We were also mutely delighted with all aspects. We were even more convinced when a friend in the know, who has been researching solar for years for the housing community he lives in, independently decided that DQ was the best company to work through for a major installation.
Thanks so much for the amazing service you provide, Finn and team at Solar Quotes.

My solar journey was a long one. I knew nothing about it and felt completely lost. I kept seeing things like "tier 1" and not really understanding any of it. Many quotes into the process I was being called (hassled) daily by people from overseas pretending to be an Adelaide based company. Then I came across DQ Electrical. Thank God. Brian explained everything to me so clearly I actually knew what I was buying. My house build was delayed massively but DQ kept checking in every month or so to see how it was going. When the day finally came they were booked in quickly and completed the job in a single day. They then took me through the whole system in person. And followed up with a courtesy call the next day. These guys are far and away the best part of my entire house build. Professional. Friendly. Knowledgeable. Prompt. Just bloody amazing. Show additional information

I would highly recommend DQ Electrical for their competitive pricing, knowledgable sales rep and top service installation. Our system was installed two weeks after the quote was received. The installers were very efficient and polite, cleaning up as they worked. Excellent job. Show additional information
Very happy with the price, process and support from DQ electrical. The sales process was simple and clear and I could tell early on that I was going to get good communication and professional service if I went with DQ.

They did not dissapoint. The total price was similar to some bargain basement providers for the kit I was looking for but they were reliable and knew their trade. The process was easy and the quality of the installation was perfect. The installers were as knowlegable and professional as Don was from the beginning. Higly recommended.

We decided to go with DQ Electrical as Donato Quattrocchi not only was a licensed electrician he also owned the company. He was a real gentleman and not a pushy salesman working on commission and seemed very down to earth and genuine. He knew what he was talking about and left us to make the decision without any pressure. Show additional information

I had 6 quotes and this was the only company to send out a person to view the house and recommend options based on my requirements.
The salesperson took their time to explain the best options based on our electricity use and provided us with a few systems to select from.
The company was professional and the staff courteous and knowledgeable.

I would strongly recommend this company to future solar customers.

Very pleased to have chosen DQ Electrical for our solar panel system. Sales, Management, Admin & Installation staff have been very professional --- and the panels, inverter & components are top quality. Show additional information
From the beginning, Don (proprietor) gave me his best price first up, so bartering didn't come into it. I already did a lot of research and his company came in on top from reviews and liason with LG (the best panels available from my research). Other competitors who also quoted on the same products came in with prices 10% to 15% above DQ's, and became quite a nuisance when they tried to match or beat Don's quote during sales pitched follow up phone calls, which were duly dismissed.
Throughout the process, Don kept me well informed on the installation process, and we opted to add a battery just prior to installation. The installation took all day, with 4 installers on the roof, and the electrician co-ordinating everything. The battery installation took an extra day with commissioning of the system, leaving me with full confidence the job was not rushed to maximize profit. The system was very complex in its final configuration, and through his direct monitoring Don made sure any teething problems in the first 2 days were immediately attended to, so we can now rest assured the system is working at its 100% capacity.
The electricians Niko and Josh were very professional, helpful and courteous in explaining the system all the way through and post installation.
All in all, a great team who have my full confidence.

My wife and I have been looking a solar systems for some time. In choosing our solar system we had around 5 quotes from local suppliers- both through solar quotes and our own market research.

Other companies confused me with a little to much technical jargon. Brian from DQ contacted me to arranging a mutually agreeable time to do an "on site" quote. He was prompt and gave a good amount of information and clarified technical specs in simple terms. He was extremely helpful with many of my questions in the lead up to and after receiving our decision to go through DQ (even when he was overseas!)

Lilia in the office was very helpful and prompt at scheduling and providing all the information needed for our meter exchange. DQ use their own employees as installers (which is great for ensuring good quality so I had to wait a couple of months for install, but all good Christmas was in that too. Confirmation was provided in the week prior to the install and all the installers arrived at their promised time.

Josh, Grant and Nick explained everything to me and clarified panel and inverter location prior to fitting them. They even removed an excess cable I had in the roof too! All fitted in a very neat and with very good tradesmanship. They every explained how to use the Fronius inverter app and cleaned up and swept all their rubbish. Don even popped out the next day to retune our aerial that was relocated at no additional change.

I am absolutely serious when I say that this is the best experience from start to finish I have had with any trades work done at my property over the years. Thank so much for everything! Will highly recommend you to anyone needing solar or electrical.

DQ Electrical was the only company to come out and actually visit the site. In my case this was important as the installation was going on a 2 storey house on a sloping site and access to the roof by ladder was limited. Brian, the salesperson that visited was very knowledgeable and explained a range of systems that would be suitable for my needs. It was very comforting to know that DQ Electrical is a LG Solar Specialist and has all the credentials required to install a Solar System. Most important was that DQ Electrical are licensed electricians and in my case this was fortunate as there was a unusual problem with the 3-phase power supply at the property. On the day the lead installer, Nick consulted me on my options and once agreed the DQ Electrical team arranged to carry out repairs within a few days so that the Solar Array was commissioned ASAP. I now have a 9.3kw solar system and a safe 3-phase power supply to the property. Many thanks to the DQ Electrical Team including Brian, Nick, Ben and Don. Show additional information
The two young men who installed the system arrived on time and completed the install at the time they stated. They were both professional and very polite. We were given clear instructions on how to use the inverter app, and the shutdown procedures. They cleared up leaving nothing behind. A job well done. Show additional information

My overall experience with DQ was very pleasant, the workers were very nice and thorough with their explanations, the job was done in less than 6 hours which was amazing and the service overall was very professional. They did their job with absolute certainty and professionalism and explained everything about the product and how to use it. They even fixed some irrelavent problems in my home which had nothing to do with the Solar Panels installation absolutely free of charge. They were very respectful of my home, they always took their shoes of when entering which was very kind of them.

Overall, my experience with DQ was extremely pleasant. I would 100% recommend them to anyone.

Outstanding service from the outset. Prompt, efficient and reliable from the office and administration to salesperson and then the installers. They went the extra mile to ensure that the system put in place would operate to its maximum, communication on installation day was excellent. Thoroughly recommended. Show additional information
We had solar installed by Don and his team from DQ Electrical. They completed the job and more. Don and his team not only installed the battery solar unit, they suggested the Solax power bank for better performance, checked all circuits in the house, replaced every breaker in the meter box and went over the monitoring process of the solar unit. Highly recommend the team at DQ Electrical. Show additional information
I found the salesperson to be very experienced and knowledgeable. He was honest about the company he works for and DQ Electrical was the only company I contacted that bothered to come and discuss the work with me. Others did contact me over the phone and send quotes etc, but the personal touch, quote and the fact they are a local company won them the job. Show additional information
