Five great reasons to choose an electrical contractor near me.

Five great reasons to choose an electrical contractor near me.

1. Electrical contractors near me can help you create a shortlist

When searching for electrical contractors you’ll be met with a list of hundreds, if not thousands, of results. Helpfully Google and Bing do sort some results by proximity to where you are, but that’s not the only thing to consider when looking for an electrical contractor.

Check out the reviews. One of the key aspects of any shortlisting will be to look at the online reviews for the business. Again, helpfully, these are generally listed when you make a relevant search for the company. This is only part of the story though, heading over the contracting company’s website will often bring up testimonials and a list of previous jobs. These can really assist you in making a choice of who to call to get a quote.

For example, here at Aspect Energy Management we work with well-known names such as Marks & Spencer, Sainsburys, Premier Inn and even the Ministry of Defence. So, you can be sure that we have the expertise and experience to carry out your commercial electrical job to a high standard and competence.

2. Local electrical contractors can visit to quote

Like anything local, when it’s nearer it’s often easier to get to – and when you’re dealing with electrical specialists, that means they can more easily get to site and better understand your quote. Some electrical contractors may request that you send all the details of your project remotely – we always feel it’s better to get out and see the job in person.

For commercial contracts in the UK then hiring locally could mean nationally – as most places are within a few hours of each other. This means after install service availability and keeping money in the local economy are all benefits that can be experienced nationwide. Here’s an interesting article by CCS: that gives some further benefits of such hiring.

Here at Aspect Energy Management we work nationally and we’re always happy to visit site to get a full understanding of your project so that we can give you a thorough and considered quotation for the work involved.

3. Service overviews are really important

When you search for electrical contractor, you can be fairly certain you’ll get relevant results – however, another important aspect of your search is to ensure those contractors to carry out the exact kind of work you require.

4. Cost benefits

Local contractors can often pass on cost benefits (e.g. reduced travel time and accomodation) to the client. As ever though, with costs, it’s important to consider also the right team for doing the job. For example, do they have the right skill set, have they done similar work in the past, do they have a track record of project delivery. These are all further important considerations over and above costs.

As an electrical contractor working nationally, Aspect Energy Management, have the experience to complete a wide range of commercial electrical projects. Our head office, centrally located in Sheffield, allows us easy access to the M1 giving us the ability to work anywhere in the UK.

Working on hundreds of large and medium-sized electrical install projects across the UK also allows us to pass on the benefit of our industry leading experience, but also take advantage of economies of scale and supplier contacts to bring jobs in on budget and keenly costed.

5. Direct Approach

You’ll sometimes find that contractors who don’t truly work nationally will sub-contractor to businesses closer by to the job. Searching for ‘electrical contractor near me’ often means you’ll find people with local expertise able to do the job directly.

Our team of experienced specialists will take care of your project from concept to completion. You can be sure that when you deal with us here at Aspect you’ll be dealing with the people that carry out the final project too.
