Our Top Tips For Choosing An Electrician in East Kent

When you need electrical work completing at your home there will always be a number of companies that you can use to do the work. However, who should you choose? What should you consider when choosing the right electrician?

We all know that we cannot take any risks when it comes to our home electrics. Often when problems do arise with our electrics, or we need some electrical work completed we need it dealt with quickly and efficiently. This means we need to know we have a good and trustworthy electrician we can call on when these times arise.

If you live in East Kent then here are some tips to help you choose the right electrician.


It’s vital that any electrician you allow in your home to do work is fully qualified and has the relevant certification. This gives you the assurance that they know what they are doing and will complete the work to a high standard.

Do not be afraid to ask an electrician for proof of qualifications and certification.


One of the best ways to find out how good an electrician is, is to look for their reviews. You can easily go online and find out what reviews they have. If you find a list of negative reviews that is already a big red flag.

Service & Response Times

When the time comes for needing an electrician it’s important that you know they will turn up, get the job done and get it done well. Not only that, but you also need to know you will not be waiting forever and it will be completed in the not-too-distant future.

The quality of service is vital when it comes to choosing the right electrician and this is something we pride ourselves in at East Kent Electrical.

Respect Your Home

When allowing trades into your home you want to know that they will treat it like they would their own property. It’s important that they will take care of your house, clean up after themselves and be respectful. After all, it’s your home.

When speaking to a potential electrician there is no harm in asking about any principles they have about entering your home and how they would treat it. 


The best way to get a good job done is to be very clear on your requirements. When briefing an electrician on the work you want doing ensure you are clear and concise in your communication. Don’t give any margin for misinterpretation and that way you will get a clear and exact quote.
