Wherever electricity is concerned, you want to know that you’ve booked the best electrician for the job. All the electrical contractors on the Handy platform are background checked, so you know you’re not letting a complete stranger into your home.

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.

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.

Noorjahan D.

Enrique was excellent! He was efficient and made sure to reach out beforehand so that he brought everything needed for the electrical work. I thought I would need an entirely new dryer and with a quick rewiring, he fixed it! Would recommend him to everyone!

Damon Y.

My first time using Handy, and I was very glad I did. Guillermo was on time and extremely helpful in fixing the electrical issue in my apartment. Now all my dimmers work. And for far less money than other quotes I was receiving. I highly recommend Handy to anyone who needs reliable, affordable help fixing something in their apartment.

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.

CHRIS F.

Vladimir was on time and efficient, very friendly and super professional. I had trouble deciding which ceiling lamp to choose and he was really patient, considerate and helpful. I couldn't recommend him highly enough, a fantastic handyman. Thank you for a job well done.
