Why is full accreditation important?
It is important to choose a contractor fully accredited by these different bodies to ensure quality works. While it is possible to have unqualified or unaccredited electricians work on your premise there is no assured quality, but with bodies (some government owned) checking our work and ensuring we work to a proper standard you will receive the best quality work every time. With an accredited contractor you will receive a slightly higher quote for some works compared to smaller contractors but this is due to the quality we willingly and are expected to provide.
