What’s the best way to choose an electrical contractor?
It’s vital that all electrical repair, maintenance and installation work is carried out by a reputable, qualified contractor. However, whether you are looking for a contractor with the expertise to handle a major commercial installation project or want to upgrade the electrics in your home, with so many firms vying for your attention, choosing the best contractor for the job can prove daunting.
Here are our top-tips for what you should take into consideration when choosing an electrical contractor in Leeds:
- Ensure the company you choose has the relevant qualifications and certifications. Here at Dalec, for example, we are registered members of the ECA (the Electrical Contractors Association), CHAS (The Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme) and SSAIB (The Security systems and Alarms Inspection Board). Looking for qualifications and membership of organisations such as these is a great way to provide yourself with peace of mind that the services on offer are of the highest standards.
- An electrical contractor with the manpower and expertise to get to you on time. If you run your own business, you’ll be all to aware of the potential cost implications and disruption which can arise from an electrical fault. With this mind it is important to find an electrical contact who can get to you quickly and with the minimum of fuss. At Dalec we have a team of fully qualified electrical engineers, available to respond to emergency call outs, repairs and more.
- Check referrals. Referrals and case studies are a great way to get an idea of a contractor’s previous experience. If an electrical contractor refuses or is unable to give you examples of their previous work, stay clear. Here at Dalec we have decades of experience of working on a wide range of projects, for clients including Leeds City College, Craven College, South Trafford College, Quaker Oats and the Professional Footballers Association to name but a few.
