Choosing an Electrician from a Craigslist Ad May Be a Bad Idea

Choosing an Electrician from a Craigslist Ad May Be a Bad Idea

I recently came across an ad for a “Side Job Electrician” on Craigslist.  I do not know this person and he certainly may be a good electrician.  The main benefit in the ad is “selling” is that he is “alittle [sic] cheaper” than other electricians connected with a company.

What kind of work does a “cheaper” electrician do?

Depending upon the background and experience, it can be anywhere between “bad” and “excellent” you really do not know.

  • Will that electrician have insurance?
  • Will that electrician have a license?
  • Will that electrician pull the required permits?
  • What type of warranty will that electrician provide?
  • What recommendations can that electrician provide?

These are all questions you need to be asking of anyone that will be coming into your home or business to perform electrical work in Omaha.

What an electrical contractor provides

An electrical contractor stands behind their work with a full warranty of performance. Their reputation is on the line and as is future business.

An Omaha / Council Bluffs based electrical contractor is fully licensed with their staff fully compliant with all the electrical codes in the various city and municipalities surrounding Omaha / Council Bluffs. You can trust their work is being completed 100% to code.

An electrical contractor will be insured protecting you from loss.

A good electrical contractor will have a history of service to the Community.

A good electrical contractor will pull all proper permits for the job.  This is important, especially so when you decide to sell your home or business when the inspection takes place.  You don’t want any surprises when you are trying to sell.
