1. Know the electrical project you intend to complete. Identify whether it is just a short term project or a longer one. Is it an extensive project? Are you building a new home or just rewiring for your appliance?

2. Be resourceful. Do you know, by any means, someone who have done this job recently? Find out who could help you most and ensure that they could rally provide what you need.

3. Ensure that you know the fees, charge and pricing. Before the project or the job will be done, talk to the contractor and let him or her estimate the price you need to give him or her for the project. This enables you to be shocked on pricing matters after the job so before everything will be done, talk about the cost immediately.

6. Follow your guts. If you start a project with an electrical contractor that is hard to deal with, then get rid of him or her. Do not be afraid to do it because you are the customer and you have the right to complain if there are things that are not working the way you and the contractor planned.
