Wherever you live, finding the right electrician to carry out your work at home, or in the office, can be a veritable nightmare. Unless they come highly recommended by a previous client, you have no idea whether they will be competent, professional or even competitively priced. By the time you have spent hours trawling the internet, coming up with a shortlist and then getting three comparative quotes, you will be feeling understandably frustrated.
Hiring an electrician in a massive city like London can wind up being a headache that we can all do without. So how do you get the right person first time? And how do you avoid the cowboys?
Finding an electrician in London
If you live in the London area, you have literally hundreds – if not thousands – of electricians to choose from. You should be looking for NICEIC Approved Contractors from the off. The NICEIC accreditation means that you’ll already have peace of mind, knowing that they are fully qualified, and have been recognised as providers of safe electrical services.
NICEIC contractors may cover full electrical installations, re-wiring projects, safety checks for older properties, upgrades to homes and business premises and even alarm installations. We don’t recommend hiring anyone who doesn’t show you a valid membership certificate.
The full electrical rewiring package
Whether you have already been through the experience of having work carried out on your home, or this is your first experience, you might be aware that if building work has to be carried out at the same time, it can be a relative nightmare to coordinate the two.
Look for a full building-works package to supplement all of your electrical projects. If you have taken on a home that requires a full refurbishment, or your existing house rewiring needs to be upgraded for the 21st century, try to find competent tradesmen that can turn their hand to other jobs: plastering, heating and plumbing, house extensions, loft conversions, and even painting and decorating to finish off the contract.
If you do this, you’ll get the job done faster, more cohesively, and with fewer risks of delay. After all, if you just have one company travelling across London to help you, you’ll cut back on delays and inefficiency.
Forget your worries
Electrical design and installation work can be complex, time consuming and expensive. That is why you need to get it right first time by choosing a company that you know will carry out the work to a high level finish and at a competitive and affordable price for the London area.
Why run the risk of taking on unregistered or unprofessional tradespeople that have not been rated or recommended? To do so can result in unfinished projects, major losses of time and money and even dangerous safety issues being left unresolved and incomplete.
Make the right choice now. Place your contract with MD Bespoke Solutions to get it right first time. There’s just no need to risk hiring a cowboy electrician in the London area when we have attentive, friendly and experienced staff ready and waiting to help.
