Finding a good quality electrician is hard to come by these days. Knowing if they’re even qualified to carry out the work, are reasonably priced, fully insured and will turn up when you need them most are constant concerns we all have.
That’s why at My Trusted Expert we’ve made it our mission to find the one truly exceptional and trusted electrician per town that ticks all the right boxes and are up to date with the very latest regulations to make sure your job goes as smoothly as possible.
They go through our thorough qualification process to make sure they meet all our expectations which only 5% succeed and once they become our expert we constantly monitor them to ensure they are always delivering to highest possible standards.
All our electricians are both these things so are fully qualified.
This guarantees all work carried out will meet the UK national standard, BS 7671 (requirements for Electrical Installations) which ensures your electrics are installed safely and correctly.
Plus once the work is finished you’ll receive an Electrical Installation Certificate or Minor Work Certificate that confirm the work carried out meets BS 7671 as well as a Building Regulations Compliance Certificate to confirm the work meets Building Regulations.
By law, all homeowners and landlords must be able to prove that all electrical work meets Part P, or they will be committing a criminal offence. Local authorities can make you remove or alter the work if it doesn’t meet building regulations.
Also when using a non-registered or certified electrician you are responsible for contacting your local-authority building control regarding your electrical work which does incur a fee whereas by using a certified electrician they take care of all this for you.
Many electricians charge a flat rate call out charge regardless if they fix your problem or not.
We don’t feel this is right. Why should you have to pay someone to come round and potentially leave you in the same position as you were before they even arrived. It’s not right.
That’s why we’ve made sure all our electricians do not charge a call out fee.
Meaning, they’ll come round to have a look at your problem and if they can fix it they’ll let you know the price to do it and its up to you if you’d like them to go ahead but if they can’t they’ll tell you there and then and you won’t be charged.
The only exceptions to the rules are for emergency late night call outs. Meaning, if you need someone round at midnight and when you actually want to hire them to check if you have any electrical faults.
Apart from these exceptions you should never have to pay a call out fee when using our electrician experts.
Electricians, plumbers, roofers, builders or any type of company that conducts work in a home or commercial space for that matter is required to have Public Liability Insurance.
This covers property related things like a broken window or any damage to your home by the company’s employees. Meaning, if they accidentally damage your ceiling while fitting your new spot lights or worst drill through a water pipe and flood a room, their insurance will cover the cost to put it right and not you or your home insurance.
If the electrician company you use doesn’t have this in place you put yourself and family dangerously at risk should something happen while they work in your home.
That’s why ALL our electricians have a minimum £2 Million Public Liability to ensure your safety.
To verify they have this type of cover, all our electricians have to provide us with their certificate or letter of acknowledgement by their insurer before they become our expert to prove they have public liability insurance.
Believe it or not, there is no law that requires an electrician to warranty their work for more than 30 days.
However, we believe warranties should be an essential part to any electrical job.
Electricians committed to quality workmanship and customer satisfaction should warranty their work for longer which is why we personally only accept electricians who offer a minimum of one year warranty on all their electrical work.
Plus when supplying a product/part they’ll warranty they’ll work for the whole duration of the manufacturer warranty for the part. Meaning, they’ll come out and fix/replace any part free of charge during the warranty period.
This way you’ll have the confidence of knowing you’re electrical work is being done properly and be assured if any problems do occur, it won’t cost you anything.

Ben of BDP Electrical did really good work and solved some problems with imaginative solutions - we will definitely use him again for all our electrical requirements.
Ben arrived at the specified time and was extremely friendly and professional throughout the works carried out. He charged exactly what was quoted and left the place tidier than when he left! What more could you want from an electrician... I would definitely highly recommend BDP Electrical! Thanks again 🙂

Very efficient service. Helpful friendly engineer. Explained fully what had been done before leaving.
I have no hesitation in recommending LKT, who fitted a number of sockets for me. I have used them in the past to fit a fuse box and wiring in a new kitchen and also light fittings.
Everything was well done & hassle free, starting from booking to a pleasant & good work of the electrician.
Professional, friendly, polite, courteous. Good workmanship, tidy. No concerns. Will be using again, already recommended to a friend.

Looking for a new electric boiler for our flat, I tried a few bigger companies and they couldn't help. T Darby Electrical were the only one who gave an immediate and exact quote, communicated promptly and did a perfect job, with our new boiler running from the minute they said it would. I strongly recommend these excellent professionals! Well done, Tim Darby and his team!
I have used T Darby for the past 4 and half years at my office job and I would highly recommend them. Tim and his team are always on time and communicate any issues or alternative ways to solve problems. They are a great team to work with.
We use Tim & the team as contractors for our property in Gosport. Great team and very efficient! Would definitely recommend.
If you are not happy, we will work closely with you and your expert to make things right.
