Whether you’re looking for assistance with a house rewire, smart home devices or fault finding, or need emergency help, whatever time of day an issue strikes, finding an electrician you can trust is vital.

When recruiting any tradesperson, including an electrician, you want to rest safe in the knowledge that the professional you choose is qualified, reputable and reliable. Achieving this however isn’t as simple or straightforward as it should be.

In this blog post, we share our top tips for finding a local electrician to support you in your hour of need.


Ask for recommendations

Word of mouth recommendations have been the go-to way to find any tradesperson for as long as we can remember. Asking friends, family members, colleagues and neighbours about their experiences is a great way to source an electrician that’s worth their salt as well as avoid ones that aren’t!

Don’t just take their word for it though. Team recommendations with thorough research to find an electrician that will do the job to a very high standard indeed.


Do your research online

The World Wide Web makes many aspects of life a hell of a lot easier, especially when searching for tradespeople to assist you within your home or business premises. In just a few clicks you can reveal a long list of electricians based nearby, but remember proximity is not an indicator of quality.

When using the net to find an electrician, dig deeper into the credentials, qualifications and experience of your shortlisted tradespeople. Check out the trade organisations that they’re members of, cross referencing any membership numbers to find out whether their claims and affiliations are genuine.

View reviews left by customers online for further details, but do this with caution. Not all reviews are genuine and/or left with the right intentions.
