For many property owners, hiring an electrician can be an overwhelming task. How do you know you’re hiring the right person for the job? Are you getting a fair price? While the prospect of hiring a North Vancouver electrician may seem daunting, there is a way to simplify the process; ask the right questions. At TCA Electric we often hear from area property owners who just aren’t sure where to begin when selecting a North Vancouver electrician. If you fall into this category, you’re in luck! Today’s post is dedicated to helping you do just that. Let’s get started!
Are you licensed, bonded & insured?
In order to legally work as an electrician in British Columbia, one must be licensed by Technical Safety BC. All licensed contractors are required to be in compliance with the Safety Standards Act. As you interview potential North Vancouver electricians, be sure to ask if they are licensed. You can also confirm on the official Technical Safety BC website.
All reputable North Vancouver electricians will also be able to provide proof that they are bonded and insured. This is very important as it protects both the property owner and the electrician. Be sure to ask any electrician you’re considering hiring to provide proof that they are licensed, bonded and insured.
How many years have you been serving North Vancouver?
Hiring a dependable electrician, with a longstanding reputation in the community, is a great way to ensure you can depend on their work today and years down the road. Be sure to select an electrician with a proven track record in and around North Vancouver. At TCA Electric, we are proud to have more than 60 years of collective experience serving the Vancouver community.
Do you offer a service warranty or a guarantee?
Be sure and inquire if your potential electrician(s) stands behind their work with a service warranty or guarantee. If any of the electricians you are considering are unwilling or unable to do so, it’s best to remove them from your list of candidates.
Do you specialize in certain types of electrical work?
While some North Vancouver electricians provide a host of electrical services, others specialize in specific areas. If your project requires expertise in a certain kind of electrical work, be sure to select an electrician with extensive related experience. At TCA Electric we are proud to specialize in commercial, residential, industrial and marina electrical work.
Can you provide references?
Any well-established North Vancouver electrician will also be able to provide a host of references. Be sure to ask to be connected with past customers who completed projects similar to yours. Take the time to contact their references and ask questions. This is often the final determining factor in selecting the right electrician for your next project.
