The Best Electrical Service

Ready to Take Charge of Any Electrical Job

A Handy electrician will always arrive with everything they need to get the work done. When you use the Handy platform, you’ll be asked to input some details about the job you need doing. Using that information, your electrical contractor will make sure that they bring the required tools and equipment, so you won’t have to rush down to the hardware store to buy anything. Don’t panic if you don’t even own basic tools! Electrical contractors on the Handy platform take their responsibility to their customers very seriously.

Shockingly Qualified Professional Electricians

Even wiring an outlet can come with its own set of potential hazards. Book your electrician through Handy and you'll be connected with electrician professionals who have plenty of experience with the work you’re asking them to complete. They will provide you with top-notch service at a price point that won’t break the bank. When you use Handy to find the best electrician in your area, you'll be connected with a qualified electrical handyman that will serves your needs and your budget.

No Job Too Big or Small

Handy electrical contractors are used to working on jobs of all sizes. It doesn't have to be a huge, complete electrical rewiring job to warrant using the services of a professional. Many of our customers use electrical contractors for small jobs, just to make sure that it's done safely and to required standards. Many Handy customers book an electrician for someone else. You might have an elderly relative or disabled friend who can't deal with minor tasks—booking an electrician through Handy to help them out is a great way to get those electrical services done and prevent further problems.

Rich P.

Turned up on time, polite, worked quickly, quiet, and efficiently. Got the job done. Would highly recommend.

Sara S.

Leonard was very knowledgeable, professional, and helpful. He came for one fixture but when I asked for help with a couple of other items in the apt., he was more than willing to help with those, too.

Nathan I.

He clearly wasn't a highly trained electrician. I knew more about installing a light than he did. He also didn't have a car.

Joyce B.

Extremely helpful, pleasant to work with and proactive about communicating with me about what I'd need in order to complete our session. A+
