How to find a quality Electrician?

Finding a decent electrician can be a tricky task, unless you know what to look for. You may google using keywords, "Kiama electrician" or "electrician near me", but you do not always bring up the electrician best suited to your needs. So how do you choose a quality electrician for your job?

1. Check out their online rankings.

Know what other people have said about them on google or facebook. It is very important to read the good and the bad reviews. A testimonial from someone else is one of the best ways to choose a tradie.

2. Make sure they are a licensed contractor.

You should ask for their license details and look them up online. You could also look for their insurance document. They shouldn't seem reluctant to give you this information. And if they are, give them the flick.

3. Ask for a formal quote.

Getting it in writing is strongly recommended if you don't like surprises and don't want the job to blow out. Licensed electrician can quote everything from basic powerpoint to whole house wiring upgrade.

4. Get 3 quotes.

Every dollar counts because you are spending hundreds of money whether it is a small electrical job or renovation.

5. Choose the right trade for your job.

Whether your job is a Residential Electrical job or commercial maintenance job, make sure that you choose a company that specialises in the job you want done. Ask the company how many of these jobs have they done before.

6. When you find a great trade - look after them.

Be clear about what you are after and pay on time and always give a great testimonial.
