Electrical cablesFinding local electrical services and qualified trades professionals for electrics is not easy. That's where Top Tradespeople helps. To find an electrician simply post a job and we match your request with up to 4 local electrical contractors.   Compare quotes from contractors for a range of projects like fitting light switches and sockets, rewires, consumer unit installation, internal and external power sytems and electrical repairs. 

Here's how - Post jobs (no-obligation).  Describe work and get matched with local people in our UK network for both domestic and commercial electrical installation needs.  Our system matches you with local contractors specialising in electrical services (you will be contacted by max 4).  It helps if you give a good description of your electrical work.  Don't forget to mention error codes, serial numbers, products, brands and any preferences.   The more information you can provide on your work the better.  It really will make it easier to find an electrician because you will get more quotes if you help by adding as much info as possible about the job in the first place.  

Once we have verified your quote request as genuine, we swing into action and look through our network of electricans and electrical contractors across the UK.  Any of the tradespeople registered will be matched if they cover your area and also provide the services you have requested.  Up to 4 of those matching electricians or electrical contractors can choose to quote on the work.  They will be in touch with you and only they will receive the contact details.  Other contractors will simply be informed there is a project which needs quotes and given a project description without any contact details.  Once the quotes come in you can consider whether they are right for you and decide if you'd like to hire one of the quoting service providers.  Once you've hired an electrician (should you choose to do so - no obligation of course), you can then tell us what you thought of them in a review and feedback so other people can get help when hiring an electrician too.




Electrical Rewires

If you have recently moved into an older property, or are building an extension to your home, it might be time to think about rewiring the house. Wiring deteriorates over time, and the way we use electricity has changed too. Older wiring isn’t up to the job of running modern cookers, ovens, electrical gadgets and several televisions all at once.  Faulty wiring can be dangerous. Sometimes the best solution is to have the house rewired.

Getting involved in electrical jobs in the home can be a dangerous pastime if you are not a qualified electrician. Some jobs may seem obvious but the dangers can be damaging and can even end in death if mistakes are made.

Reasons for hiring a qualified electrician

Checking to see if light switches or socket outlets are working can be done relatively easily and safely if you have knowledge of how the circuit breakers in your house work. If more complex electrical work is required then you will need the help of a fully trained and competent electrician. If you are in any doubt about your skills then it is always better to err on the side of caution.

1.If you do want to carry out the electrical work yourself then be prepared for the risks. Electric shocks can happen very easily as can fires and damage in general.

2.Building regulations stipulate that any electrical work done to your home must be undertaken by someone who is able to comply with its requirements. That person must be competent enough to be able to test the safety and functionality of any electrical system installed.

3.If you are using an electrician to finish off jobs that will improve the chances of selling your home then they will be able to provide certificates showing that legal requirements have been met, which can make your house more saleable.

4.If there is any accident within your home and it is the fault of the electrician they he/she will be covered with the necessary public liability insurance.

What Skills and Qualifications Should You Look For When Hiring An Electrician?

To ensure quality and safety, certain standards must be met. The British Standards (BS 7671: requirements for electrical Installations must be complied with by all electricians. Professional electricians are registered with government acknowledged schemes like the Electrical Safety Council (NICEIC), the Electrical Contractors Association (ECA) or National Association of Professional Inspectors and testers). Hiring someone who adheres to national standards and belongs to a recognised body means you will have the confidence to trust your electrician.
