Set up fee: in addition to the monthly subscription for members, there is a one off set up fee of £19.99.
The Services we provide:
We will check each electrician who seeks to list on our website at the time they list to ensure that they are accredited by being listed with a government-approved trade body and in particular: NICEIC, NAPIT, STROMA, OFTEC, ELECSA, BSI, BESCA and Benchmark. Typically, by being accredited an electrician has provided proof of their identity and has the requisite qualifications or experience to satisfy such trade body of their competence. However we cannot guarantee the accuracy of the information supplied to and accepted by such trade bodies. We may also (but are not obliged to) require up to date proof that such members continue to be accredited after they have listed with us.
We will also check that any member listing has insurance at the time when they list. Typically we expect to see £2 million in public liability insurance and we may (but are not obliged to) publish such details. We may also (but are not obliged to) require up to date proof of renewals.
We may make enquiries of the above said government-approved trade bodies of any member listing for the prevention of fraud or if we otherwise consider it necessary or appropriate to check or verify their identification, qualifications and credentials. Often such bodies will share information for the purposes of preventing fraud, but we cannot guarantee that information will be made available to us. Whether we make such enquiries is also a matter in our sole, unfettered discretion.
We may (but are not obliged to) collect feedback on electricians and/or seek recommendations from customers to enhance our listing Services.
Please note that unless we clearly notify you to the contrary and in writing, the electricians listed on our website are entirely independent of us, and it is not ourselves that provide any of the electrician services marketed on this Website.
