It’s a situation that many of us dread but electrical faults do happen and, when they do, it’s important that you can easily find an emergency electrician. Morden and other parts of South West London are home to many emergency electricians so it can be confusing knowing who to go with. The best advice is to do your research and trust your instincts! We’ve put together a useful guide to finding an emergency electrician so that you can get the best results.
Assess the situation as best you can
It will be much easier for your emergency electrician to fix the problem if they are prepared and have an idea of what they’re facing. Before you call anyone, it’s a good idea to take a deep breath and assess the situation. Is it a wiring issue? Have you got a dodgy fuse box? If the fuse box is tripping, it might be something you can solve with our emergency electrical kit. However, if you do need to call someone, even a vague idea of the problem will help out your emergency electrician!
Check their licence
It’s highly important that you are hiring an accredited, professional electrician for the job so make sure you check their licence. Using the electrical register is a good way to ensure you are hiring a fully licensed electrician. If you are presented with the electrician’s license on arrival, make sure the name on it matches the name that you were given over the phone. Here at RyGas, we guarantee that we will provide you with a fully-qualified, expert electrician, in Morden or other parts of London.
A quick bit of research never takes long and checking the reviews for emergency electricians is another useful way to ensure you are choosing the right person for the job. There are a number of independent websites which review tradespeople, so check these out and make sure you hire someone with a good track record!
Use your best judgement
Ultimately, time is of the essence during an electrical emergency and you can’t spend forever looking at reviews and registers. While research is important, there comes a point where you have to exercise your judgement and assess whether you think they sound reliable and trustworthy based on your initial communication with them. Trust your instincts because you will usually be right!
