How to Pick an Electrical Contractor for Your Strata Management

When you are faced with selecting an electrician for work on your strata’s operation, it is important to make your selection based on the level of experience, expertise, and professionalism. This is not the time to save money or select an untested source. This is a job that is never really completed. You should expect your electrical contractor to assume a stewardship role and have the task of maintaining the property. Certain standards of compliance need to be legally met.

A master electrician is always a safe bet when contracting at the strata management level. They are usually the most experienced and have a better business sense. This will ensure better over-all service. Strata work requires both a knowledge of advanced systems and a breadth of knowledge. You’ll find that master electricians have a low opinion about sub-standard work. For a master electrician, there is only one way, the best way. There is no room for shoddy work when electricity is involved.

What to Look for in Strata Electrical Services

There are all levels of electricians out there. This is not the time to take a risk. The effects of something going wrong are far-reaching. You need to make sure that the one you select meets the highest levels of professionalism and experience. Make sure that the electrician you choose is licensed and is or is part of a fully registered and recognized business. There is no room for ambiguity, so do not depend on their word, do your research.

Be advised that being licensed does not necessarily mean that they are insured. A strata management job is most likely a high-cost job. The stakes are also higher. It is always advisable to hire an insured contractor.

The Sign of a Good Strata Electrician

Whether the job involves multi-unit lighting upgrades or EV car charger installations, your electrical contractor must take on the responsibility and liability for making sure the job is done correctly. Safety is at stake. Here are the signs that you are working with a highly trained and highly professional electrician:

  • Are they prompt, free of excuses and a clear communicator?
  • Are they available in case of an urgent matter or emergency?
  • Do they bid on a project basis, or by the hour? If they bid on a project basis, this is a sign that they fully understand the scope of the project.
  • And possibly the best sign of a good strata electrician is their reputation. Were their past jobs completed successfully? What do the reviews of their work reveal?
