More Tips on How to Choose an Electrical Contractor

Define the project first

What do you need to have done?

Write down your details and determine what your needs are. It does not matter if this is an extensive rewiring project or a small installation job.

When interviewing potential electrical contractors, you want to ensure that you have concrete goals to look for. This not only helps make it easier to hire someone, but you can also determine whether the contractor in question is the right fit for the job.

Another reason that defining the project helps is that it allows you to start sorting out costs. While costs matter, it cannot be the sole determining factor when hiring an electrical contractor.

Remember that professionalism, expertise, and workmanship are crucial.

Do the research

Once you know what work you need done, you have to start narrowing down electrical contractors. You do not want to pick the first name in the phonebook and hope for the best.

Make sure you do research and ask around.

You can ask some of your friends or co-workers that had electrical work done recently. You can also find a lot of information online, providing you with reviews of contractors in your area. Make sure to contact at least three or four contractors.

Ask questions – and lots of them

Once you have narrowed down the number of electrical contractors, you have to make a selection.

Ask for an Estimate

Make sure that you receive an estimate from all your electrical contractors.

Most Adelaide electrical contractors will offer free, no obligation quotes - especially for domestic jobs.

This will help you determine if one electrical contractor is under- or overpriced.

It is important that you are comfortable asking questions. You can ask for testimonials and references at this point. Be wary if an electrical contractor has a disproportionate number of negative reviews online or cannot provide any references.

Trust Your Instincts

During this stage, it is important to trust your instincts.

If someone feels wrong or you feel that your prospective electrical contractor is raising red flags early in the communication process, it is better to look elsewhere. This might be an unwillingness to explain the details of the project to you, shifting estimate amounts, or poor overall communication. Remember that these issues are likely to get worse as the project progresses, not better.

Make sure to get it all in writing

You have done the research, you have talked extensively to your potential electrical contractors and you have finally made your choice. Now you want to make sure that you get everything in writing.

Even if you are working with an amazing electrical contractor, verbal agreements may prove problematic later on. Make sure to have a target completion date on your final written estimate. It also needs to include pertinent details needed to complete the project and the agreed-upon budget.
