Simple Steps for Choosing A Commercial Electrician

We know that your business needs to continue to run as smoothly as possible. This means you don’t have time to deal with sub-par service. Through years of experience in the electrical industry, we have found that there are specific traits and characteristics that are evident in top-quality professionals. When you are looking for your commercial electrician be on the lookout for the following:

  • Proper licensing and paperwork. If your electrician doesn’t have these, then they aren’t the electrician you want! Appropriate licensing and certification are an absolute necessity for any professional-level business. Surprisingly, some electricians are still getting by completely without or with outdated certifications. Making sure your provider is up to date and maintains their state certification is the first way to weed out the electricians you want to stay away from.
  • Protected and insured electricians. Uninsured contractors expose your business to huge risks that you do not want to deal with. If something goes wrong with your electrical services, an uninsured contractor can leave you with a very expensive and business halting problem to deal with all on your own. Insurance provides a blanket of security coverage in the case that something goes wrong. This protects you, your employees, and the electrician.
  • Positive customer reviews. The beauty of the internet. Long gone are the days when you had to look up a company in the phone book and hope the first electrician listed was the best one. Nowadays, just like back then, personal referrals tend to be a far better means of finding a quality company that meets your standards. With the magic of the internet, we have far more access to dependable data and valuable opinions. This can be a great way to find out if your electrician is well received and review whether their work appears to be quality and reliable.
  • A professional attitude. This is a big one. An electrician doesn’t need to be stuffy, per se. In fact, a personable attitude and the ability to communicate are massive bonuses. But in the end, your electrician is there to get a job done, and done correctly. A business shows their professionalism through the little things. Branding and marketing are a big deal. So is a professional demeanor and a clear demonstration of knowledge. This is an area where a lot of electricians show their true colors. Do they have a quality website? How do they answer the phone? Can they adequately and clearly explain answers to your questions? These little impressions are clues that help determine whether an electrician has the required professional attitude to be considered for a potential long-term business relationship.
  • The best quotes. Bottom line, your business cares about service costs. Your best bet is to take all of the above points into account and create a brief list of the best options. Make some calls, get quotes, and compare. This also gives you an opportunity to feel out a business, judging worth according to friendliness, helpfulness, and other important factors. Take into account your biggest needs and make an informed decision based on the criteria you gather.
