How to choose the perfect electrician


Finding the perfect contractors to carry out your electrical works can be tough. That’s why when it comes to choosing the perfect electrician, it’s extremely important to do your research.

Whilst every electrical refurbishment comes with its’ own unique challenges, what every project needs is intelligent design, skilled installation and safe commissioning. All ran, of course, with focused project management.

A properly installed and well-maintained electrical system, be it a new build or a refurbishment, can significantly reduce the possibility of accident or injury. So, it is important that any electrical work required, is carried out by people who have the right qualifications, the knowledge, skills and experience to carry out the works not only safely but to your desired standard and specifications.

If you are a business or any other organisation requiring the services of a commercial electrician at your premises, the following tips might be helpful.

  • Be clear about what you want to achieve. By clearly outlining the type of work you want to be carried out, it will be easier for electricians to provide you with a more accurate quote. This will help you with your decision when choosing.
  • Check whether they are NICEIC registered, choosing a registered electrician means you will get additional protections should something go wrong. You can always contact the scheme directly if you want to check the individual’s registration.
  • Ensure that they have experience in previous relevant sectors or similar types of projects.
  • Are there any references from previous customers, you can ask these referees to explain the work they had done and how satisfied they were with the job done.
  • Check to see if the electrician is licensed and insured before any works are carried out.
  •  If an electrician makes you feel uncomfortable for any reason, then seek advice before you contract them to do work for you.
  • Also, get a few quotes so that you can compare options. But make sure your are comparing like for like.
  • While price is obviously an important consideration do not base your decision entirely on this.
  • Don’t feel pressured to make a decision quickly.
