Rivercity Electric will complete your electrical projects with skill and professionalism. We are an Eden Prairie electrical contractor with years of experience and a commitment to service.
You might not think of it often but, the fact is that at some point in time every home is going to need the services of an electrician. The electricity that makes our lives comfortable and simply makes everything work is a major component in every home. Of course many homeowners are knowledgeable enough to do some of the small things themselves, such as rewiring a wall switch or replacing a ceiling fixture. But for the rest of us, anything electrical that requires repairs, upgrades or hard wiring is going to demand the services of a certified Eden Prairie electrician.
Finding an electrician shouldn’t be difficult. Finding one that you feel is right for your specific project may take a little more effort.
Ask family, friends, co-workers or neighbors for possible recommendations. If they’ve had any experience with an Eden Prairie electrician, they can tell you if they were happy with his work or not. If someone’s had a bad experience, they’ll probably be glad to tell you about it. Likewise if someone’s had a good experience with an Eden Prairie electrician they’ll probably give him a glowing recommendation. People are often ready to brag about what great service they received. You'll find that we have a good reputation and take pride in our work.
When you find an Eden Prairie electrician you’re interested in working with you’ll need to do a little background checking. Call the Better Business Bureau to see if the electrician has ever had any complaints filed by customers. If you do find any, ask for details and whether or not the complaint was settled to the satisfaction of the customer. It’s not uncommon for even a well established Eden Prairie electrician to get an occasional complaint but how they resolve any complaints is what’s important. A number of complaints on file against any electrician should signal a red flag that you should shop elsewhere.
Once you have a few electricians in mind you can interview each one and discuss your project with them. Ask about experience; we'll be happy to explain to you how an Eden Prairie electrician can meet your needs. We offer a quality of service that you will not find elsewhere. After the project is complete, you'll be happy we sent an expert Eden Prairie electrician.
Ask each electrician to do an onsite inspection with you and have them discuss in detail what they feel needs to be done and how they would accomplish this for you. Tell them what you’re trying to accomplish and use the time to convey any concerns. By spending some time with each Eden Prairie electrician, you’ll also get a feel as to how well you communicate with each one and if you’ll be comfortable working with them. If you feel uneasy about any electrician or have doubts, simply move on to the next one. Remember this is someone that you’ll essentially be relying on for the future of your home.
Ask how long the entire project will take and how much it will cost. Obviously an Eden Prairie electrician can’t give you a correct estimate until they work up an in depth quote. Supply each electrician with a list of what you’d like to see in their bid. You’ll need to know what is involved in the project as well as the cost of any necessary materials and labor. You’ll want to know your payment options. Small jobs usually require payment at time of completion while larger projects are usually made in installments as the job progresses. You’ll also want an estimated time for completion.
Once you have a bid from each Eden Prairie electrician it’s time to make some comparisons. An extremely low bid may be tempting but you need to be cautious. A low bid may be nothing more than that but if it seems unusually low it may also mean the electrician is cutting corners, something you certainly don’t want where electricity is involved. If the bid is really appealing to you ask the electrician how he arrived at the figure and how he is able to under bid everyone else. The truth is, when determining which Eden Prairie electrician to hire, you not only need to choose the one that’s going to be the best for your budget but the one that is most suited for your particular project as well.
Don’t lose sight of the fact that when it comes time to choose an Eden Prairie electrician, it’s about more than just your budget. When dealing with electricity, you have to think about the safety of your home and family. You need a reliable Eden Prairie electrician that will take the time to pay attention to detail and make certain the job is done right. Your home’s future relies on the quality of the Eden Prairie electrician you choose.
