Making just a small mistake can lead to serious problems so it is wise to hire a fully qualified Electrician to do the job in a safe manor.
Most people will search online for an Electrician or will be recommended a person by a friend or collage that has had work completed in the past and was happy with the service that they received.
There are a number of qualified electrical contractors in London to choose from but how do you go about finding the right person or company to to do a competent job on your home or business premises?
One of the most important things is to check that they have the right certification and insurance. You should request to see proof of this and a decent Electrician would not mind showing you the required documents.
Most companies or tradespeople have a website in this day and age so it will be time well spent having a look at the reviews and feedback from past clients. It is important that the person is punctual so you will be able to organise an accurate time that suits both parties so work can start.
It is advisable to get a written quote for the job beforehand so that there are no nasty surprises I the future. This way everyone knows where they stand.
Although the cost of the work is important, it is not always advisable to go with the cheapest option. You do not want a person that cuts corners as this may lead to more work in the future.
After the job is complete you will need certification of what has been done. Check you will get this before hiring someone. If the person will not agree to this then it would be better to go elsewhere.
