Research

studying, electricianAs I mentioned in point one above, there are numerous electricians in the market. This calls for a lot of research before saying yes to one among the many. Search online for electricians in your area. You will get a huge list of the many available. Take your time, visit their social media pages or websites if they have them. Here you will be able to get all the information needed. From the information on their pages, take contacts of about three of them and contact a face to face meeting.

License

Are they certified to work as electricians in your area? A reputable electrician will not hesitate to give you their licenses and other certificates of operation. A licensed electrician can be trusted because in case anything happens you can report them to the authorities for easy tracing. If you notice that they are not confident or ready to give out their certificates of operation, run, it is the first red sign.

Insurance

As we all know, it is a risky job. It involves heights, and one risks electric shock. If they happen to get an accident on your premises without insurance, all the blame will be on you. It is therefore important to choose an electrician with insurance that does not only cover him but your property. The insurance company should be able to compensate both the electrician in case of an accident and compensate you if you lost the property.

Cost

You might have agreed on all other factors only for you to disagree on cost. This is what I tell people about cost, always pay an amount within your budget. Secondly, you must get value for your money. We cannot all afford the most expensive electrical companies, but one should get value for whatever amount you pay.
