Checking that your electrician is registered is the first thing you should do when getting a quote!
Even if the contractor says they are, or that their advert says they are, or your uncle recommended them because he works for the council so he must be OK………. CHECK FOR YOURSELF! We have come across many instances where electricians in the local area have simply lied about this. The NICEIC even have a “wall of shame” on their website detailing electricians who have been caught out! Even if you end up hiring us, I insist that you check our registration out BEFORE working with us!
It is super simple – just visit ONE website to check no matter which governing body they may be registered with.
Registered Competent Person – Electrical
The above website, the “Competent Person Register“, lists all registered electricians, their contact details and the scheme they are registered with.
NEVER hire an electrician without checking this first! You wouldn’t hire a gas engineer without checking their credentials, but many hire unregistered, often unqualified electricians without a second thought.
