07 May Hiring an Electrician: What You Need to Know
If you’re a home or business owner you’ll know that things can be ticking along quite nicely and then several big jobs need seeing to at once. As you know, keeping on top of a house or office means regular maintenance costs, but we can give you a great price and ensure a quick and efficient service, should you require any electrical work completing.
So, what do you need to know when it comes to hiring an electrician? And what might you need an electrician for in the first place? While you may be able to attend to some electrical work yourself (changing a light bulb, maybe even checking the circuit breakers on a faulty socket), other jobs are best left to a professional.
Need your house rewiring? Give us a call at JLM Electrical and we can help. Or maybe you need CCTV installing at your business? No problem, we can deal with that too.
As far as costs go, they can vary – depending on the nature of the job, usually. Electricians like ours here at JLM can be called in from anything from a smaller, 10-minute job to a larger project, with prices ranging from an hour’s standard labour to hundreds for a more in-depth piece of work.
Always check references before choosing an electrician. If you’ve decided to use our services, you’ll have all the peace of mind you need after just a quick browse around our site. We’ve worked with some huge brands, and some smaller companies, and all of our customers tell us we offer a great service with minimal fuss.
Obtain quotes first, too. It’ll give you the confidence you need that there’s no hidden costs at the end of your job. Our electricians will always keep you informed along the way as well, letting you know if more work will be required further down the line and advising you on any critical work that may need carrying out as soon as possible.
Has the electrician you’ve chosen passed all the relevant exams? Our team is fully qualified and registered members of all the affiliated regulatory bodies and trading standards organisations. We never employ anyone who isn’t qualified, we’re CRB checked and we hold CIS cards too.
If you’re concerned your electrician of choice isn’t insured, don’t be afraid to ask. Public liability insurance is a must; it’ll protect you, your home or your business should anything go wrong.
Whether you’re looking for a residential or commercial electrician, we can help. We can install everything from outdoor landscape lighting, to vital electrical services for construction sites and office blocks.
Give us a call today and we’d be happy to answer any of your questions to give you the peace of mind you’re choosing the right contractors for the work you need completing.
