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.

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.

Carlos was fantastic. He went above and beyond and explained my options each step of the way through. I had thrown a few different tasks his way and none of them were a problem whatsoever. Needless to say, everything is working perfectly. Very knowledgeable and personable and really great with pets which makes things SO much easier. I have three dogs who can all be a handful when barking away in the rooms with people over, but he was very friendly and the dogs calmed down immediately and settled in which I think as a pet owner says a lot... Highly recommend him for anything you may need - will be using him again without question!
