At some stage at home you will most likely need some electrical repairs done around the home. If you rent a property you would need to contact your landlord or Estate Agent to deal with this.
Otherwise if you own the home you will need to search for a suitable person to carry out the job safely. There are certain things that you will need to check for when hiring an electrician and we will go through this in this post.
Most people use word of mouth to find someone with recommendations from friends or neighbours. This is finer but you will need to make sure they are qualified to do the job which will make sure the job is done correctly.
The amount that you will pay varies and you should get a few written quotes before you decide on who will do the work. Don’t always go with the cheapest and consider things thoroughly before making a decision. You should check that the price inclueds VAT or that will be added on after.
First off they must be qualified. You must see if they are a member of the NICEIC or the ECA. You can search for these sites online to check. The electrician should also have suitable insurance to cover everything if an accident or damage occurs.
You can search for a phrase such as NICEIC London electricians or add the town that you live in. You should go through the website and check for any feedback from past customers. Regarding qualifications, you should be able to check the paperwork to be sure. A good electrician will be able to show this to you and will not mind at all.
