Check their credentials
It's important to ensure that the electrical contractor is qualified and registered, search the Electrical Safety Register to ensure they are listed.
Get a quote and references
Contact the electrical contractor and arrange for them to quote for the work. Remember to be clear about what you want and always ask for a written specification and quotation. You should also ask for references. A electrical contractor will not hesitate to provide them.
Get the work certified
No matter how big or small the job, the electrical contractor should provide you with an electrical installation certificate which will confirm that the work carried out meets the UK Safety Standard, BS 7671.
