Find an electrical contractor with integrity and superb customer service.
Electrical contractors, like contractors in general, have gotten a bad rap for many years now. For whatever reason, when people think of general contractors, electrical contractors, plumbing contractors, or any other type of contractor, they immediately get a bad taste in their mouth. All contractors have been lumped together, unfairly, into a group that’s defined by laziness, overcharging their customers, and not doing very high-quality work. It’s a completely unfair stereotype that many contractors have to deal with on a daily basis, but it exists because there have been many contractors out there who have exemplified the generalization made about them. There are indeed a fair number of contractors who don’t do very good work and overcharge for the work they do, but there are even more out there who do do a good job. The trick is finding one of the latter and avoiding the former.
Let’s say that you’ve been running into some electrical issues in your home or business and you need to hire an electrical contractor. You obviously want to find someone who you believe is going to do quality work and who will resolve the issue in the right way, meaning it won’t be an issue any longer nor down the road. What you really need to be looking for is an electrical contractor who has integrity and who offers superb customer service.
Let’s start with the integrity piece of the equation. Picking an electrician who has integrity means picking one that’s going to work from the moment they walk in the door until the job is complete. It means someone who is going to charge you a fair rate for the work they do. Electricians aren’t the least expensive contractor to work with because they offer a service that regular people can’t do and because they have to go through a lot of training, but that doesn’t mean that they should overcharge their customers just for the sake of it. Electricians with integrity charge what the job is worth, and they don’t try to nickel and dime their customers. Electricians with integrity also act in a professional manner, answer any questions their customer might have, and clean up after themselves once they’re done with their work. In short, they treat your home or business like they would their own.
The second piece of finding a great electrician is picking one with superb customer service. Obviously, there are several components to this. An electrician with great customer service is one who answers the phone when you call and responds to emails quickly. They also field any questions you might have about the job or the rates, they’re clear with you about what it’s going to cost upfront, and communicate clearly with you throughout the entire process. Electrical contractor companies like Piper Electric know that great customer service is what sets them apart from their competition. They understand that their customers want to know what’s going on with the job, and so they do their best to communicate with their customers during each step of the process.
