Looking for a commercial electrician to install three phase garage equipment? Need a competent electrical contractor to upgrade your South Lambeth office lighting? Are you a restaurant owner who wants professionally installed kitchen equipment?
Finding a competent and reliable South Lambeth commercial electrical contractor isn’t exactly like looking for a needle in a haystack as there is a good choice, however, we appreciate that finding someone that you can trust with your industrial or commecial electrical project is not straightforward.
Trust is the key.
Over the years,poor and dangerous installations have made people wary. Commercial electrics require specialist knowledge, training and many years of experience. Commercial and industrial electricians need to have a somewhat higher skill set compared to residential electricians because they are roiutinely involved in the installation, maintenance and/or repair of heavy equipment such as industrial powerplants, heating and air conditioning systems, manufacturing machinery and so on. Commercial supplies are generally at least 415v and have a high current capacity, woking on these whan you are used to domestic supplies will often lead to a mess, meaning that you need to call in a second electrical contractor to complete the job. You suffer from greater disruption and the potential of days without power.
Obviously we believe that we are ideal for your job, our commercial electricians have more years of experience than they care to think about! But here are our tips about what to look for when choosing your South Lambeth commercial electrician:
TrustMark is a government incentive to help consumers find reputable firms to carry out repair, maintenance and improvement work in homes or gardens. The government consumer line receives more calls for regarding trades people than second-hand cars and they now advise the general public to use a TrustMark registered company. TrustMark members are deemed to be not only technically competent but also carry out business ethically and deliver a fair job at a fair price with no hidden costs and can insure their work, giving you the peace of mind that your job will be completed conscientiously and if anything should go wrong, the contractor is responsible for putting it right.
Word of mouth is a great way to find a trustworthy electrician. Have a chat with your friends and acquaintances from other local South Lambeth businesses to find out if they have used any commercial electricians an if they have, add those electricians to your shortlist.
When you first contact a South Lambeth commercial electrician, describe the nature of your job and ask them to come to make an estimate in person. If they are not available at short notice, they may also be too busy to get your project finished in a timely manner. Also, if they are reluctant to come, they may have little experience in your specific situation. A confident commercial electrician will be ready to make an estimate whenever possible unless their schedule is packed to the limit.
During the estimate, you can judge their composure and see how they handle themselves. If they have a strong respect for your South Lambeth property while just visiting, they will be more likely to respect your property while they work on it.
If the commercial electrician is unable to offer at least a range of an estimate on the spot, they may lack experience but could still be reputable. A professional commercial electrician sometimes needs to value the entire job with an itemized list and market-price calculations but should be able to generate a best-guess within a certain range of accuracy even for bigger jobs.
