Work references - Request references, so that you can verify the qualifications and work of the electrician.

Verifiable references are important as they show the person you are hiring has completed work to the total satisfaction of the customer. The other things that you can verify are courteousness and reliability. This ensures that you are not getting someone who is rude and difficult to work.

Guarantee for work - Depending on whether the electrical task is small or large it is advisable to appoint those who can give guarantee for work done. Get the guarantee for work in a written document to ensure remedial action could be taken within a given time frame.
