 We bought a century old house that needed a full re-wire. The house has beautiful box ceilings and original woodwork. Not only was the bid extremely competitive, but the electricians were exceptionally careful to limit the damage to the walls to a few two inch holes. They seemed to care as much as we did about this house and we were totally satisfied. You cannot go wrong with Mike and his crew at Hi Amp...Mark and Rachel....Lakewood
Mike came to do an electrical inspection for a home I was purchasing. Mike was awesome, very knowledgeable and helpful in quickly identifying the problem. Mike is honest and reliable. Will definitely keep his number handy for any future work. It was a pleasure working with him.
Thank you Mike for an awesome job!

Mike moved several heaters for me and charged about 100
dollars less than what he and I had verbally agreed to.
He was very professional. He's terrific and I'm glad I found him. Bev University Place
I am currently Active Duty serving overseas with a renter in my house. My renter found an issue with my outside lights and was unable to get them to work. All I had to do was email Mike and give him my renter's information. He was quick and repaired the improperly installed wiring same day (and on a saturday). It's rare that us on Active Duty can ever find help or companies willing to work with us. But Mike has shown me that there are people out there that still care in providing service to even those half way around the world. THANK YOU so much for helping me and my renter get this fix. I will defiantly be using again for any future work.Christina A
 I can rest again. Mike will no doubt be my electrician for life, he is very very good at what he does. He seem to sniff out the problem like some sort of electrical bloodhound and fix the problem quick,he was very professional( prompt, honest, competitive ) i encourage anyone looking for an electrician to look no more.
Thank You Mike

Description Of Work:
Our Realtor suggested Michael from Hi Amp for a supplementary electrical inspection when we were purchasing our house. Based on his (and our other inspector's) recommendations, we had him back in to replace our electrical panel and add some three-prong outlets in a couple of rooms. He also put J-boxes in the attic where needed.
Member Comments:
We were pleased with the work. He brought another person along to help and performed the work in one day. There was a bit of dust left over afterwards, but the holes for the new outlets were cut neatly and needed no touch-up. He scheduled the electrical inspection afterwards and called back after the job was done to make sure all went okay with it. I can't rate the price, because this is the first and only electrical work we've had done and we didn't get enough additional estimates to compare.  Concerns? Please tell us!

Mike came to fix an electrical problem that has haunted us for months. He found the problem in 20 minutes and only charges $81. We feel safe now

Good morning Mike,
I hope the Holidays have treated you and your family well this year.  I wanted to first thank you for the work you guys did at our Condo, the lighting has been a very nice addition and the Board has recieved very positive responses from everyone regarding the work you guys did.  I know our decision to put in the lights was greatly supported by the your suggestions for the types of lights that work best. We have been very pleased with everything Hi-Amp did, especially given the weather conditions and scheduling.
Again, we are very pleased with everything you guys did and know we will look to Hi-Amp for any additional electrial needs.

Hi Mike,
I has been a couple of weeks since we had the gate installed by your people. We have had the inspection and gotten the ditches all filled in. I just wanted to write and thank you for the work that your guys did and the professional manner in which it was done. They were extremely friendly and always willing to answer the questions that we had about their work. They worked non stop for two whole days and just when they thought they were done and Kathleen wanted something put over the gap between the gates they did not even blink, and accomodated her with a solution to the problem. The Electricians that you sent were a great compliment to your business. They came in, saw what needed to be done and went about it in a very precise and professional manner. We were consulted on all the work and showed what was being done as it was done. We had ideas, they had solutions and between the two of them the job was done above and beyond our satisfaction.
So all in all we just wanted to let you know that you have a great team of people that work very well together in a friendly and professional manner. We appreciate them and you for selling us the product. Thanks again.
Sincerely Satisfied Customers,

 Hi Michael :)

My name is Sharon Donato and I'm currently teaching a class at Boulder Creek Elementary in CA and while I was looking for resource pages for my students I found your page - . As a class we're putting together safety resource pages so thanks for making the page :)

I also wanted to send you a page all about "Home & School Safety Education for Kids" which my students picked out during our search. They noticed your page didn't list the page they found so I told them I would shoot you an email to see if you would list it :) Here is the page they found:

I told them that if you posted their page I would order the video "March of the Penguins" from the National Geographic channel and we would watch it as a class next Friday :)

You would make our week if you could add their link to your page!

Thanks again and hope to hear from you shortly :)


Sharon, I vote for the kids and the video. If I were closer I would join you all. I am very happy you were able to use my website for your class project. I have placed your link on 2 of my pages and . Thanks for your interest and well done students....Mike Hofmann





 Mike ensured that the electrical portion of our recent business expansion was started on time, performed to a high standard and completed on schedule. I highly recommend Hi Amp Electric for one stop, no hassle electrical needs. CS in Roy




 I have used Mike and HI AMP on more than one occasion they have done my hot tub to replacing my house breaker box with a generator transfer box. I have told friends and family if you need an electrician and whip out one of mikes cards because I carry some of his cards thats how much I like HI AMP Electric. S.H Mckenna,Wa.






We were very pleased with the service and reliability of Hi Amp Electric. Anybody who deals with contractors knows it can be a crapshoot on whether they are reliable and will actually show up when they say they will. Our general strategy is to pray they actually show up and do the work as promised; a sad lesson learned while building our house. We were very pleased with the professionalism that you showed while doing our electrical job. We would not even consider calling anyone else in the future. J & D Taylor-Rainier
Service was prompt, efficient, and honest. I would recommend Hi Amp for all electrical needs. Thanks for the great work! MB Tacoma

Mike your support through my project has been very helpful! Your answers were easy to understand , and very complete! JD


As you all know by now Puget Sound Energy is not the most reliable energy company in Washington State, but Mike Hofmann and Hi Amp Electric is. Honest, forthright and workmanship is something to emulate. Would I recommend Mike and Hi Amp Electric, you betcha. Jason Elliott, Yelm 
With all the stress of having a house built it was a pleasure to find someone like mike to work with . Would not hesitate to use him again if the need should come up . cp, yelm
Mike and HI AMP ELECTRIC were recommended to me by my home inspector to complete several unfinished electrical issues in a house that I recently purchased. Mike identified the problems, fixed them in a timely and efficient manner while exceeding all my expectation. What a relief to find a professional who can "take care of all your electrical needs." V.H., Tacoma



 Excellent work and prices. I have used Mike several times and have always been completely satisfied with the job and the price charged. He shows up when he says he will which is a added bonus! I highly recommend Mike for all electrical needs.  Lori H. ..Roy Wa



HI AMP ELECTRIC exceeded my expectations completely. We just purchased a fixer and it was riddled with electric problems. But they worked amazingly fast to find the problem and fixed it just as fast. We are more that merely satisfied with their work we are recommending HI AMP ELECTRIC to everyone we know. Lydia Yee...Covington WA

Panel upgraded to 200 amps
Amount: $1,575.00 
Posted by: Ron W. in Tacoma, WA. Posted: April 23rd, 2010 06:04PM
Amps: 200 Electrician: Hi Amp Electric
I called 4 electrical contractors to bid a panel upgrade. After a week of no-shows I found an electrician on the web. Mike from Hi Amp Electric showed up the next day to give me a bid. He was very knowledgeable and honest. He was also the only one who showed up. He gave us a bid for $1575 plus tax. This included the permit. The job was done in a professional manner with no inspection problems. A honest contractor is hard to find. I would recommend Hi Amp Electric from Tacoma to everyone




Mike came out to look at a tree that had taken out our electrical service. The service box was destroyed. He arranged for a contractor to come out and remove the tree, then Mike, from Hi Amp Electric, replaced our service and called for an inspection. He had the power company hook us back up 2 hours after he finished the service wiring. The inspector made it and it passed. This whole process took 2 days. I was amazed I go my power back so quickly. Mike took care of the whole thing. I would recommend this company to anyone. Tina D. Tacoma

We recently had the opportunity – or actually the privilege - of partnering with Michael on a series of remodels for a national retailer. We found Mike to be exemplary in every aspect of the relationship. From professionalism to performance, you can expect nothing less than the best from Mike and his company.

I would highly recommend you consider Mike and HI AMP ELECTRIC for any of your electrical needs.

When I have an electrical problem I call Mike. He is prompt and very efficient. He is very personable and he stands behind his work. I'd recommend him in a heartbeat.
Jill S. Puyallup
Mike Hofmann was great to work with all through the process of construction. He is very knowledgeable and a first rate electrician. You can count on him to do quality work at a fair price. I would recommend him strongly for work on both commercial and residential construction.

Mike has also helped me with my own website as a friend interested in helping a friend, and that sort of kind helpfulness in much appreciated. He genuine seems to care, and that is the highest recommendation I know of. D.J. Mckenna Wa.

Hi Amp Electric did a quality job at a reasonable price. All issues were efficiently addressed with no surprise gotchas. I will definitely use Hi Amp Electric again for future electrical work. PP, Tacoma, WA
A trustworthy electrician who listens is hard to find. Professional and reasonably priced. Thank you for helping me move in!  M., Tumwater
Last winter a tree fell on my power pole and I was faced with an outage probablility of what could have taken weeks to repair with all that was involved. HI AMP took care of everything and my power was restored in less than a week. I could not have been more impressed or happy with the work of this electrician.I would certainly use his services again.
