How to choose the right electrician in Edinburgh

Val Chisolm

We’re looking at the importance of choosing the right electrician in Edinburgh, without wasting potentially thousands of pounds on someone who clearly isn’t up to the job you have in mind. It can and does happen unfortunately, but if you do your homework, you can avoid a potential disaster. 

Carry out some preliminary research online

It can be a minefield, but if you do a careful google search, then shave off the top ten and narrow them down to a few you like, you can make the process a bit easier. They may well be quality electricians, but there’ll still be some more homework to do. For example, who’s used these electricians? Find out, and see how reliable their testimonials are once you find them on their website. Hopefully, they’ll have given an authentic review of their electrical services.

Are they a member of a government approved scheme?

The next thing to do is to check whether or not they’re members of a registered government scheme and whether they’re associated with respected industry standards. All electricians should be registered with an approved government scheme, because any electrician on one of these schemes needs to be qualified and trained to a high standard and be qualified to carry out complex work safely.

Give electrical companies a call

Call them and ask them questions, they should be happy to answer all your queries consistently and fully, and let you know their skills and qualifications without you having to dig it out of them. If you have any bad feelings walk away. 

Always discuss costs

Good electricians should be priced competitively and this will enable you to narrow your list down to a final three. With this final few, you can ask for the cost of a job, and they should be able to give you a breakdown and details of any extra costs, so you know what you’ll be paying for before you sign anything.
