John McCraw.

If you've driven around Tehachapi the last few weeks, you've seen signs for John McCraw Electrical off Highway 202 and around town. You may have even seen utility trucks with the logo driving through the hills. Every time I see these signs, I smile, knowing that John is somewhere in Tehachapi making life better for residents.

John McCraw first came into the Tehachapi Chamber of Commerce in November last year, looking to join and expand his thriving electrician business in Santa Clarita to Tehachapi. His disposition was so cheery and he genuinely wanted to serve the community of Tehachapi, where he and his wife Becky now call home. I noticed right away that local residents also have had the same impression.

John McCraw Electrical has glowing reviews:

"I called John with a minor issue and he was at my house in 10 minutes, took less than 10 minutes to fix the issue (all while chatting with my 3 year old about birthdays and cookies). It took me a while to believe there is still customer service like this in the world!"

– Julianne H.

"I can't recommend his service more. So call him, you won't be disappointed!" – J.H.

"Absolutely one of the best companies to work with if you need any electrical work done. MerryJane (who runs the office in Santa Clarita) and the crew are very responsive and professional and will take care of your home as if it were theirs. We recently moved the Jbox since we wanted to relocate the light fixture in our dining room and you cannot tell that any work has been done. They have been to my home multiple times and have been on time for each appointment. I cannot recommend them enough! 10/10 would recommend." – K.D.

John grew up in Santa Clarita. After moving to the town in 1963 and going to school there, he was comfortable opening his business in the same city in 1987. John has more than mastered the electrician's trade. The best part of his job is telling folks that they can have what they want. While other Electrical Contractors may refuse certain projects due to difficulty level, John's intimate knowledge of commercial and residential specifications allows him the ability to complete complex projects of any size.

Jeanna, one of John's customers, shared, "John K. McCraw was a call I made after having another company in my home that overcharged me and didn't finish the jobs they started. Not only did John's team provide me with a quote on the spot, they came over the same day (in the pouring rain) to complete two unfinished projects. They were on time, were good stewards of their time and my budget, kept my home clean, and got things working that I was told were 'broken.'"

From rewiring household fans to saving fish tanks to wiring whole houses, there isn't a project that John hasn't experienced, and his numerous five star reviews speak to his commitment to customer service.

We're thrilled to be able to share John McCraw Electric's success up here in Tehachapi. Next time you see John driving around Tehachapi, be sure to give him a wave. John K. McCraw Electrical is state licensed (C-10515617), bonded and liability insured, and is a proud member of the Greater Tehachapi Chamber of Commerce.
