When looking to repair electrical work in your home, you want to ensure you’re hiring the most qualified electricians for the job. Hiring the wrong person can cost you time, money, and a lot of stress! Here’s 4 crucial things to check before choosing an electrician.

Electrician license details

When you hire an electrician, you may want to ask for their license number or look up their ABN details. The reason for this is because not all electricians are certified and claim they are. A simple ABN lookup will show whether they are a registered business. The last thing you want is an electrician fixing something at your place and having something go wrong to find out the business doesn’t exist and you aren’t covered!

Some electricians only provide over-the-phone quotes and you’ll find when they show up to your house, will often end up over-quoting you and the price will change many times before giving you the final invoice.

Always ensure the price you are quoted with is backed up with a quote, so you protect yourself by requesting a written quote beforehand.
