See what our customers are saying about Sorlien Electric:

“I’d purchased an antique chandelier and I needed it moved over about 4 inches to center it in the room. Al from Sorlien Electric came over and he was on time, and he went downstairs and checked to see how much electricity was being used and If the chandelier would work, and it did. He had to go up in my attic and he had to crawl in a crawl space up there, and he had to check the beam and the caps, and he installed a new metal box to hold the chandelier. He hung the chandelier by himself and cleaned up after himself. He was awesome and I wouldn’t hesitate to call Sorlien again. In fact I’ve told other people that I was so impressed with them, so I’d hire them again in a second.” – Sandy Harms, Sioux Falls, SD

“I’d had my house painted and had Sorlien Electric install outside lights by the garage, and then because of the ice storm last year, I had some wires come down so I had them replace that. And then I had them do some work on my telephone because one of the jacks wasn’t working on my telephone. So I’m just really pleased with them. I’ve always had a good luck with them. The people that come are excellent, confident and they are very friendly and they always clean up after themselves, so I only have good things to say about them.” – Mary Meier, Sioux Falls, SD

“Sorlien Electric was very quick to respond to our need. The technician was very friendly and professional.” – Ann, Stellar Limousine, Sioux Falls, SD
