10 things that make an Outstanding Electrician

  1. Tools outside the tool bag the best electrical standards!

A bit like thinking outside the box; your tool bag is like your briefcase. A good electrician carries tools outside of his tool bag! What does this mean? It means Experience, Knowledge and Great Customer service, this all encompasses a good electrician.  

2. Experience

More often than not, electricians begin from apprentices and stay on if they like the profession. As an apprentice, your no.1 goal is to do what you can and absorb and retain as much as you possibly can. Or they are carrying on a family trade; they have seen their parent, brother or grandparent embody the electrician’s role for many years and have decided they like what they see and pursue it as a career. 

What differs a good electrician from your average one is that a good one will continue to absorb skills, even after their apprenticeship is over and they’re on the job!

From colleagues to blogs like these an electrician should always be on the lookout to improve the service they are able to provide for a client. Self-development and professional electrical service is paramount to a good electrician.



In any job knowledge is essential, of course, however, not everyone will know everything. A good electrician will always have the means to find out how to complete a project that they do not have the immediate knowledge of and execute it to the best of their ability. Knowledge does not only come from qualifications, as you know it also comes from experience.

3.Great Customer Service

This is obviously required in any profession that deals with people – of course! But I’m sure you will agree that there is an extra level of customer service, manner and trust involved when that service is provided domestically. Nobody appreciates an unappreciated guest!

Any domestic worker should aim to make the client feel as comfortable, safe and reassured as possible. You wouldn’t let just anyone into your property!

4.Work identity

If you’ve had any experience with anybody that specialises in domestic work you may have noticed that everyone has a certain way or style that they operate in. A good electrician aims to be the best at what he does.

 Things Customers Look for in an Electrician who is local and really cares!

5.Positive recommendations

Electricians who have good reviews from previous customers are more likely to be hired compared to those who have no or bad reviews Prime Electrical is always happy to share examples of past work and are proud of all our Which reviews. Word of mouth travels fast as well! Especially in smaller towns, news travels fast. A happy customer leads to more business! As the old saying goes, it’s good to talk!

6.Good value for money

Nobody wants to overpay for a service that they can get for a much cheaper service price, this is why it is good to communicate well with your client and negotiate several quotes. Also, ensure that your electrician provides a clear breakdown of all the costs that you will be covered. We cover all over potters bar from Al9 – En6. 

7.Qualifications and certificates

Customers are seeking electricians with at least a year’s experience in the field to ensure nothing goes wrong. This is probably the most important when looking for professional electrical services.

8.Good communication skills

Communication is key when keeping in contact with an electrician. If they are lacking or are not attempting to keep in contact with you, it is a big negative that can show that they are not competent. Electricians must also ensure to communicate with the customer with a positive confident attitude so that both you and the electrician can understand each other. This is also important because your electrician may also have to liaise with other trades.


Above all, as the service provider, electricians should take a well-mannered approach to clients and ensure to keep the customers happy and satisfied with your customer service.
