The Trusted Name in Electrical Service

Experienced

When you book an electrician through the Handy platform, your pro will have all the benefits of on-the-job training. While courses and paperwork might be all you need to pass exams and certifications, there's just no substitute for experience. Your electrical contractor will have honed their skills over the years working on a broad range of jobs. Whether you need help installing a light switch, wiring an outlet or running a wire to a new lighting fixture, the Handy platform will connect you with the right electrical service professional with the right experience.

Skilled and Capable

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. Every pro is rated and reviewed by past customers as well, so you can rest assured that they have a track record of excellence. Whether you need a single residential electrician for a quick job, or someone to help rewire your home, the Handy platform helps connect you with the best electrician possible.

Reliable

Whether you work in a busy office or are a stay-at-home parent, there’s nothing worse than waiting for hours for an electrical service provider to turn up. When you book electrical contractors through the Handy platform, you can be sure that they’ll turn up on time and ready to work. Using the Handy app or website, you can pick the time you want your electrician to arrive. Get on with the important things in your day, secure in the knowledge that electrical help is on its way.

Flexible

Make changes to your electrician service right in the app or on the website. And if you need extra help, the Handy customer service team is always available. If you’ve got an electrical emergency, you can book an electrician to arrive as soon as tomorrow morning. If you’re buying a new property and want a fully-qualified residential electrician to check the wiring in a few weeks, just name the date. Using the Handy platform to book your electrician puts you in charge of when the work gets done. Should your situation change, you can cancel or reschedule your appointment—we just ask that you provide 24 hours’ notice.

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.
