Before checking advertisements on the web or in the local listings, you may want to consider asking the people around you. These people have for sure at least once in their lives had the need for electrical services. Someone you know may have just had electrical work done and you can ask about the company they hired and their experience with the service. You can make a list as you go on and take notes of the reviews and comments about each contractor. Be sure though, that only licensed and certified Winnipeg electricians make it on your list.
As you are down with a short list of electricians, check out their website to know more about them.

You may also check reviews available online to have a better idea on how they provide service. You will want to get the company with the most number of positive reviews, of course. While you check them out online, you can also search for bargains, work models, or discounts offered by each electrician.
- Make Sure They Are Insured and Licensed.

Thus, you can guarantee every assignment done is ensured with 100% fulfillment. Employing a licensed and insured electrician who conveys protection likewise ensures safety during the work.
- Search for Experience.
When comparing electricians, consistently get some information about their level of experience. You need to ensure that the one you employ is really able to do the sort of work you need, so get more information about the works they have dealt with in the past, and the length of time they have been in the field. Never be reluctant to request for this information. Also know that the nature of work and warranty will vary between an apprentice, a journeyman, and a Red Seal electrician.
- Request For Quotes
Request for estimates from at least three different companies. Tell them what you need and see what they can do for you.

Never pick an electrician just because they charge the cheapest as when it comes to these kinds of work, it may mean “you get what you pay for”.
