Are you looking for tips for hiring an electrician? How do you find a high quality electrician with so many out there?
In this article, explore what to look for when hiring an electrician.
Tip 1 - Local recommendations
As an electrician a lot of my work comes from word of mouth and it does for a lot of other trades too. Ask around for recommendations so you have a few local electricians to pick from.
Tip 2 - Check they're registered
Checking your electrician is registered is completely free to do and it will only take a few minutes using a website like www.registeredcompetentperson.co.uk
If you're electrician is registered then they will have their work inspected every year. It also means that have qualifications and insurance.
Tip 3 - Check their insurance and qualifications
I know I've just said as a registered electrician they will have insurance but insurance plans lapse so it's always good to ask for a copy of their insurance to make sure you're covered.
Tip 4 - Check their online profiles
Have a look at their google listing, website and facebook page etc and check the quality of their work. This also gives you a chance to look at their reviews from past customers.
Tip 5 - Get more than 1 quote
Getting more than 1 quote means you can compare the quotes and find out which electrician you're most likely to get on with.
The cheapest quote most likely wont necessarily mean it's the best. Usually paying more will get you a better electrician and a higher quality of work and aftercare.
