    How To Find A Local Electrician

    Finding a local electrician? That’s easy. Finding a local electrician you can trust? Now that can be easier said than done. Not only do you want to find just any ol’ electrician, but you want to find an electrician who is reliable and qualified for the job. We break down three ways you can ensure you find the best electrician in your area.


    Word-of-mouth is one of the best ways to find a reputable local electrician in your area. Whether you receive a recommendation from a friend, neighbor, family member, or a co-worker, a recommendation holds a lot of weight when it comes to making important buying decisions. According to Nielsen, 92% of consumers say they trust word-of-mouth or recommendations from family and friends over other forms of advertising.

    Along with personal recommendations from people you know and trust, you can also find reputable recommendations on social media sites from past customers. Referrals are not only essential to a business’s reputation, they are also essential to people searching for products and services they can trust. If someone’s experience was good enough to warrant a recommendation, then you can trust they really are that good.

    Search Engine Results

    Sometimes finding a qualified electrician is as simple as searching the internet. When you do a search online, chances are you’ll receive several options for electricians near you. To ensure you’re choosing a trusted and qualified electrician, it’s important you do online research. By browsing their website and doing your own personal research, you can be one step closer to finding the best electrician for the job.

    Some questions to ask yourself when searching online are:
    1.       Do they have good reviews?
    2.       How long have they been in business?
    3.       Are they licensed, bonded, and insured?
    4.       What are their qualifications?
    5.       Do they offer the services you are looking for?

    Get Quotes

    It’s not always clear if you’ve found the best electrician for the job right away – until you talk to several different companies. The best way to know for sure is by getting quotes from a few electricians in your area. When receiving quotes from electricians, it’s important you think about the following:

    •         Did the electrician show up on time?
    •         Is the electrician professional and trustworthy?
    •         Are they licensed and insured?
    •         Does their quote align with your budget?
    •         Did they provide you with a written or a verbal quote?

    After meeting face-to-face with an electrician, you can usually get a good feel for what they’re like and what type of service they can provide you with.
