How to avoid getting ripped off by a tradesman:

 

Unfortunately we have experienced many clients who have encountered the services of an incompetent or rouge tradesman. On many occasions this has been either the result of the decision to allow price to determine the choice of tradesmen or the failure to carry out some basic background checks.

In our experience there are 10 warning signs to spot a rogue electrician

1: They will avoid giving references

2: They will only supply a mobile number and there is no address on their letterhead/business card.

3: They will always offer to carry out the job ‘cheaper for cash’

4: They will say they can start tomorrow – a registered electrician is usually booked up well in advance.

5: They will not provide a written quote or will avoid confirming anything in writing.

6: They will tell the client they are approved by an organisation that has never heard of them.

7: They will tell the client not to worry about the details of the job.

8: They will use jargon and complicated explanations to confuse the client.

9: They usually cannot give a specific cost for materials or labour prior to work commencing.

10: They will provide a quote that is surprisingly low – if something sounds too good to be true, it usually is!
