Trying to choose the right electrician for your electrical services can be a challenging task for some of us. A search on google will list plenty of electricians in Singapore but the real question is, how do we choose the right one that we can trust that they do a good job while not overcharging?
Below will be some of the things that we recommend that could help you find the right electrician for your next electrical services
Tip 1 – Look for A Locally Registered Electrician
When hiring an electrician, you can do a search on google choose your preferred electrician. By doing a search on google on the preferred company, google will show you the results if the company is registered locally.
All Singapore businesses are required by law to be registered with ACRA which is the main body that governs all Singapore businesses.
Should you find that the company you decide to hire is not registered, avoid it at all costs as the last thing you want to experience is that should there be problems arising from the electrical repair & installation, you might not be able to get them to rectify the problem.
Tip 2 – Choose a One Stop Electrical Services Provider
If you decide to buy and install from a different source, there may be a possibility that should the equipment breaks down, both the seller & installer will try to push the blame onto the other party.
By working with one that provides both electrical equipment and installation, the above problem can be avoided.
Tip 3 – Online Reviews Both on Google / Facebook
With the internet making the world a smaller place, it is now easier to find reviews of the electrician online. Take some time out to read and check their customers feedback.
A reputable electrical service company will easily have a handful of creditable service reviews indicating that they provide quality service.
If hundreds of customers have used them and recommend them on Google / Facebook, you can’t be too wrong about your decision
Tip 4 – Round The Clock Electrical Support
Your electrical appliances might break down or a sudden power trip might occur during the odd hours. In most cases, you might want an immediate fix should the scenario be urgent.
You might therefore want to choose an electrician that provides round-the-clock electrical support.
Tip 5 – Certified & Trained Professionals
With so many government bodies offering certification, a reputable and trusted electrical service company will at least be registered with 1 or more certifications.
Although there is no requirement for an electrician to be certified, why would you want to risk your home electrical system in the hands of an untrained electrician?
Tip 6 – Compare Prices
Finally, as a consumer, you should always compare prices and understand what you are paying.
When prices of electrical services offered look too good to be true, it usually is. These electricians will try to charge you on items that are not agreed upon which is not the market practice.
