While I'm happy to provide a rough estimate of the potential cost of a job, I do not provide fixed-price quotations over the phone for any work other than Electrical Installation Condition Reports without having first carried-out a visual inspection of your electrical installation. BS 7671 regulation 132.16 requires that an assessment be made of an existing installation which is to be added to or altered. To comply with this regulation, an initial home visit will almost always be essential.

As a member of SELECT, you can be 100% certain that JK Electrical have the necessary experience, competency and qualifications to undertake Electrical Installation Condition Reports for the purposes of assessing the safety of electrical installations, fittings and fixtures in private rented property.

Only by choosing a member of SELECT, or an NICEIC approved contractor can you be sure that you will be using a registered electrician who is suitably qualified and who possesses the necessary skills, knowledge, experience, competence and professional indemnity insurance to undertake inspection and testing of electrical installations as per the statutory guidance issued by the Scottish Government.

Be safe, be sure. Always use a registered electrician for Electrical Installation Condition Reports and always ask to see documentary proof of his trade qualifications and professional indemnity insurance.

"It's unwise to pay too much, but it's worse to pay too little. When you pay too much, you lose a little money - that's all. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing it was bought to do. The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot - it can't be done. If you deal with the lowest bidder, it is well to add something for the risk you run, and if you do that you will have enough to pay for something better." ~ John Ruskin
