Electricians in Barnehurst
We have all heard that the best way to find a decent electrician to work in your home is to get a personal recommendation from someone you know and trust. While this does make sense, it is very surprising to know that nearly one third of homeowners hiring an electrician through a personal recommendation never bother to check out their qualifications, or see if they are a fully registered electrician with proper insurance.
Even if an electrician comes highly recommended, it can be difficult to know if you are dealing with a legitimate person without asking them some probing questions. Make sure you get some satisfactory answers to these questions to make sure you are not hiring a cowboy and be left with some serious consequences:
Are you a registered electrician?
Having a registered electrician work in your home can greatly reduce the risk of accidents and injuries through poor workmanship. Check that they are registered with an officially recognised body or schemes that are regulated by the UK Government. Check that they work to the BS7671 safety standard, are fully insured and their work is fully guaranteed.
Can I check your qualifications?
Although you may feel awkward about asking an electrician to prove their qualifications, if they are offering a genuine professional service, then they will have absolutely no problem with your request. This shows that you are dealing with an honest company that are happy to be upfront about their claims and credentials.
Can I see your previous work?
Seeing is believing, so an electrical company will be more than happy to show off the quality of their previous work. They should carry a portfolio of work done for satisfied customers and even offer an on-site inspection where you can get to see in person the standard of their work and chat to a previous customer first-hand.
