We could just say “choose us” when you need local electricians, but what are the points that make us stand out above other electrical contractors? If you’d like to shop around, these are the points to look out for:
We are fully licensed
All too often, a handyman with a backyard operation will set himself up as an electrician. At first, his price may seem very good, but his unprofessional work could end up costing you a lot of money, and if he has an accident on your property, you could end up being sued!
Always check whether a contractor has fully trained, qualified staff with all the insurance you need for peace of mind.
Apart from just having a license, certain types of work require a special license. For example, if you have a business that uses high voltage current, a domestic electrician isn’t for you.
Great third party references and testimonials
We’ll let you in on a dirty little secret: a lot of businesses fake the testimonials on their websites or get a friend to write them. A quick online search is usually enough to uncover genuine reviews from people who have used the services of a contractor. Feel free to take a look around. We’re confident that all our clients have been satisfied.
Check estimates carefully
If a contractor just offers you a price for the job without providing any itemized listings, that’s a red flag you should worry about. As for verbal estimates, they are an absolute no-no. Be sure you get a detailed quote with every item listed.
That way, you know what your money is being used for and have documentary evidence of an agreement between yourself and the contractor that fixes the price. You should also take a close look at all the fine print to be sure he can’t back out and change the cost without informing you.
Beware of companies offering extra-cheap prices. If they need to work for a very low price in order to get customers, they are probably not very good at what they do.
We believe that our pricing strikes a middle road, we keep prices as reasonable as they can be without cutting corners.
Qualifications and Experience
You don’t want to do business with a company that hasn’t been around the block a few times. Inexperience is bad enough, but when there is a lack of qualifications, that could be positively unsafe. Find out whether the company knows its stuff, can show proof of its credentials and only uses qualified electricians.
We’re proud of our staff, and we only choose electricians with all the qualifications and experience they need to help our clients and maintain our good reputation in the Atlanta area.
Appearance, Attitude and Communication
A company that works in a professional way will not send you grumpy workers with scruffy clothes and clapped-out vehicles. As for people making you wait or failing to show up when they are supposed to be checking out your work prior to preparing estimates, you don’t want anything to do with them! If they can’t be reliable form the start, they won’t be reliable at the finish.
Our staff knows that customer service is as important as getting the task done, and they treat our clients with the respect they deserve.
