How to find a Good Electrical Contractor

by | Oct 27, 2015 | Electrical Engineer

Regardless of how large or small your project is, you want to find an electrician who is not only licensed but also qualified for the job. We have come a long way from opening the phone book and calling the first electrician listed under ‘A.” Home and business owners have to work a little bit harder to find someone who is qualified for the job. You also need to find an electrician who cares about the safety of your employees just as much as you do.

Here are some tips to help you find a high quality electrical contractor in Cheltenham:

* The Better Business Bureau is your friend. You can check reports from other customers and the BBB also gives the company a grade so you know how reputable and reliable they really are. They also field complaints so you will be able to see if there is any cause for concern when it comes to hiring this company. You will also be able to confirm if they are licensed and certified electricians.

* Word-of-mouth goes a long way in this industry. Ask your friends and family if they have had any recent positive experiences with electrical contracting companies and if they could recommend a company for the job. Visit here to get more information.

* Before you hire an electrical contractor make sure that they can show you proof that they are licensed and certified. You should also ask for proof of insurance just in case there are any unexpected accidents.

* Make sure that when you are talking to potential contractors that you ask for an upfront quote. A reputable company will come to your site and do a free assessment as well as provide you with an accurate quote. If they are not willing to provide you with a free quote then they could milk you for quite a bit of cash.

It is also extremely important to remember to not be talked into taking care of the permits for the job on your own. If the electrician is unwilling to get the permits on his/her own then that is a major red flag and you should stay away from this company. Just because you find a contractor in the yellow pages or online does not make them a reputable source. Make sure you do a thorough check on their background and client history to get an accurate view of what to expect from them.
