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.

Labu did a fantastic job, he was on time and very helpful. He really went the extra mile, coming with me to the hardware store to buy the fittings we needed, rather than just saying it wasn't possible. Top guy, very friendly and did a really good job too.

Jessica H.

Garshon, achieved what two other ( non handy site) guys couldn't do! He was patient and knows his craft well, he even labeled our speaker wires which made it easy to set up.

No particular problems. He was good. I had a long list of items, and the two big items that were highest priority for me weren't done.
