Picking a company to trust with your home’s electrical system can be an extremely daunting task- especially with all the options out there! This checklist can help curb some of that anxiety by shedding some light on prospective companies and their reliability.  Whether you’re dealing with damaged cables or redoing your kitchen – here are a few important things to consider.

Qualified And Certified

Similar to any other service, it’s imperative that the electrician has had the proper training and experience if they are to provide top service to their customers. For proof that they have the necessary skills to perform safe and effective work, you can ask to see their qualification, wireman’s licence and registration with the department of labour.

Fair Quote

For bigger home projects, it is always a good idea to get a quote from more than one company. This is to protect you by making sure that the quotes are fair and competitive. If a quote is much higher or lower than the others, it could be a red flag that you’ll want to avoid.

Experience With Your Specific Electrical Issue

When doing your research, you need to make sure that the company has experience with the specific electrical issue that you are experiencing. Some companies cover all areas of electrical service, while others specialise in repairs or installation. By explaining in detail what you need to be done and asking if they have experience with it, you can decide if they’ll be able to help you or not.


You can find out a lot about a company from their previous client’s experience of them. This is why asking friends and family for recommendations or the company for references is so important. If others have had a positive experience with a company and their level of workmanship, you may feel more comfortable trusting them with your home.

Professional Attitude And Appearance

A company’s professional appearance and attitude are usually reflected in their quality of work. A professional attitude goes hand in hand with time management and communication. You need to be confident that you understand one another if miscommunication is to be avoided.

Who Will Be Performing The Work?

Before making a final decision, you need to make sure who exactly will be doing the work. Some companies outsource and others have someone supervising the workers. Don’t be afraid to ask questions about this. After all, you’ll be letting these people into your home and safe space.
