What To Look For In Electrical Contractors In Auckland

As a locally owned electrical and security company, the Redline Electrical & Security team knows just how important finding quality electrical contractors in Auckland is. It is essential to know you will receive quality advice and workmanship from your electrician when building or renovating your home. These are some points to look for to ensure you hire the best person for the job.

Make Sure The Electrician Is Registered In New Zealand

The first step should always be to ask the contractor to see their Electrical Workers Registration Board (EWRB) licence. As with a driver’s licence, all electricians must constantly carry it as it indicates whether they are a Registered Electrician or Trainee Electrician. If they do not have the required licence, it’s unlikely that they’re registered.

Get As Many Recommendations As You Can 

One of the best ways to find a good electrical contractor is to ask friends, family and anyone else around you about their recommendations and experiences. From there, you can find out more details about the completed project as well as whether or not they were pleased with the result.

Always Ask For Estimates 

Meeting in person and having the electrician visit the project site is ideal. Often they will offer a complimentary on-site estimate. However, keep in mind that the lowest price isn’t necessarily the best option. Read through the quote thoroughly to make sure you don’t land up paying for more than you anticipated. Remember, quality and safety should always be prioritised over price.

Ask About Any Concerns From The Electrician’s Side

During your initial meeting, ask whether the contractor has any concerns about your project. If they are taking your desires for your project seriously, you’ll soon be able to tell.

Find Out About Their Previous Work 

Find out about the types of projects the contractor has worked on previously, and specifically whether they have worked on anything similar to your project. The more familiar they are with the type of work you need to be done, the more likely you’ll have a successful result.
