Please take care when choosing an Electrician.
Points to remember....
Please make sure you take care when choosing an electrician to undertake any work in your home or business. Make sure you ask the right questions, check the individual is qualified and whether they choose to be a registered member of one of the Government approved schemes such as the NICEIC, Trustmark, Elecsa etc.
Don’t be embarrassed to ask to see paperwork of their qualification or registration status. Get more than one quote the cheapest quote may not be the best deal – if it seems too good to be true it usually is!
Don’t just take their word for it get a reference from previous customers, if you are uncertain about an individual ask them to provide references. Also check if they are part of a review system such as Which Trusted Traders, Checkatrade etc.
Know everyone working in your home – there is a growing problem with contractors such as builders or kitchen fitters making poor or cheap choices of the electrician they employ or work with on a job. It’s easy to assume the tradesman in charge will check qualifications and registration. But don’t leave it to chance – ask to see proof yourself.
