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.

Excellent service so good we are booked in for more work to be done
Used once in the past with no problems. Just want to say have a phoned for advice on a couple more occasions, and each time have been very impressed, by the advice and time given to me. They will be my first port of call for any future electric problems.
Came out on a bank holiday at very short notice - not even an emergency. Very helpful, professional and courteous.
A very good experience. Gareth came to look at the job when he said he would. Two electricians arrived to undertake the work on time, they were efficient, tidy and polite. The job was completed on time and all rubbish was taken away. Would recommend and use again.
Great and friendly service, would highly recommend.
From initial quotation to job follow-up, the service was faultless. Electrician was knowledgeable, courteous and clearly walked me through various ideas and options available. Work was carried out on time/date agreed, and on budget. Would highly recommend.
Excellent workmanship. Really pleased with the finished result, can now use freezer and electrics in garage, old lights removed and replaced with new ones. System also separated from house circuit which is ideal. In addition I originally booked Steve last week but due to poor weather conditions I was unable to empty the garage and until he arrived I didn't realise he wouldn't be able to complete the work. Steve was extremely accommodating and agreed to return a week later with no fuss. I will be using him again for sure!!
Steve was really friendly, helpful and provided an excellent service. He was around the same day we called to provide a quote and completed the job quickly and efficiently. We will certainly be using him again.
If you are not happy, we will work closely with you and your expert to make things right.
