3 Things You Need To Know About Electricians

Posted on: September 4th, 2012 by admin 1 Comment

Whether it’s a wonky picture or a shelf that just doesn’t hang properly you will undoubtedly have remnants of your partner’s last DIY job around your home, and whilst he may consider himself as the next ‘Handy Andy’ there are certain things that should only be tackled by the professionals. Electrics are one of these jobs, let loose on wires and plugs and your house could end up with no power! It’s much easier and more convenient to simply pick up the phone and call in a team of electricians in West London, and why bother rooting around finding a company when we provide all you need here at First Strike Electrical.

What do you need to look for when finding a team of electricians? There are a few elements that should be at the top of your checklist:


You hear nightmare stories about cowboy builders and homes that end up in disarray, but these could be avoided with a little bit of planning and organisation before heading straight for the cheapest company you can find. The first thing you should check is that the electricians are qualified, this is your first sign that they are a trusted a company, never use anyone that can’t prove qualifications.

Do What You Need

It’s no point doing all this research and then calling upon a company that don’t offer PAT testing if that’s what you require, make sure you take a full look into the services that the firm provide; and if you can’t find what you’re looking for either assume they don’t provide it, or pick up the phone and ask!


When it comes to something like your electrics you want to ensure that the service you’re going to be provided with is efficient and prompt. They’re a vital element in your home and so you can’t be without them for long; it’s no good hiring an electrician that’s going to take weeks to fix a broken wire in your kitchen! How do you know if the firm you’re looking at is efficient? Look for past customer testimonials and see if you can find any recommendations.

You needn’t worry about any of the above points with the team here at First Strike Electrical as we tick all the boxes! Call us today to find out more about the unrivalled services we provide.

I did most of the work myself but required someone to come in and put in all of the electrics, so I called First Strike.
