Getting the Parts
You are able to supply new parts to our electricians, for example if you want specific light fixtures installed. This gives you more flexibility but also risks spending money on products that are not suited to your unique situation or ones that pose dangers to your connection.

What to do before your electrician arrives
Whether you go with an electrician from our network or get your own (no hard feelings), to ensure the job goes as smoothly as possible we recommend you do the following:
• Arrange for your electrician to have entry to the property. Ideally, you should be there to show them the location of the problem and describe what you want done! If you can’t stay, organise someone to let them in such as your real estate agent or building manager.
• If possible remove furniture, belongings or other items from the area of work that are not fixated to or part of the property. This will ensure your electrician has full access to the area they need to and make sure that no items get accidently damaged.
• Confirm what time they are arriving and ensure either you or your electrician have the parts needed for the job.
