How to choose the right electrician on the mornington peninsula

When it comes to choosing the best electrician on the Mornington Peninsula for your domestic or commercial electrical jobs, there are a number of factors to take into consideration. Taking the time to select a highly qualified electrician will ensure that you don’t waste your money, time and effort on an end result that doesn’t meet your expectations. 

Here’s a few tips to choose Mornington Peninsula’s best electricians:

Electrical licence

In Victoria, electricians must possess an A Grade Electrician’s Licence to undertake electrical installation work. In addition to this, they must have a Registered Electrical Contractors (REC) to complete this work for profit. By making sure that your Mornington Peninsula electrician has the relevant licences to complete your electrical maintenance and installations, you are verifying that they have completed the necessary electrician training. The practical and theoretical knowledge gained throughout an electrician apprenticeship means that the contractor should complete your jobs safely and to a high standard. 


While electricians may perform different tasks depending on the electrical work that they specialise in, every electrical job has the potential to pose a risk. Risks can affect people, electrical tools and other property. For your own peace of mind, confirm that your electrician at least has Public and Products Liability Insurance, which is compulsory for many types of contractors. This protects contractors against legal liability as a result of property damage or personal injury to a third party as a result of work completed. 

An electrician that has an additional insurance policy for their tools and vehicle demonstrates that the business places a value on their equipment, so may also be a good indicator of the level of pride they take in their work.

Customer reviews

Past customer reviews of Mornington Peninsula electricians are one of the most valuable resources you can use to help you choose the right business in your area. Consistently positive reviews are usually a good indication that you will have a similar experience with a business, if they have been completing their work to a high standard with outstanding customer service. 

Likewise, ongoing negative customer testimonials can ring alarm bells if there are consistent claims that a business is not performing. Keep in mind to take such reviews with a pinch of salt, though, as it’s important to know both sides of the story in case there was a misunderstanding that led to the review. It’s a good sign if a business has responded to the customer review professionally, offering a solution.

The best places to look for previous customer reviews are the electrician’s website, their social media pages, their Google My Business listing, and any additional advertising they may have online.

Portfolio of work

Being able to access an electrician’s photo gallery of their past work is also very beneficial when choosing the right electrician. This is especially the case for electrical jobs such as lighting installation, where you can see they have done jobs similar to yours, for example if you are looking for someone with chandelier installation expertise. For other work such as powerpoint installation, home automation, home security, or data and cabling, photos are a good way to verify that the electrician’s work is neat and tidy. 


When doing your research on the best electricians in Mornington Peninsula, it’s crucial to find out how much experience the electrical contractors have in the industry. The greater the number of years spent operating means it is likely that the business is doing well and they have positive word-of-mouth in the local area. Not only this, but it means they have been exposed to a wider variety of situations, so you can be reassured that if any difficulties arise, they will be better equipped to resolve the issue with their extensive electrician skills, likely having faced a similar problem at some point in their career. 

Gaining an understanding of an electrician’s level of experience is also important when hiring a commercial electrician. Even if the business has experience doing domestic electrical jobs, this doesn’t mean that they will be well suited to doing a whole shop fit out if they have no experience completing this particular type of work. Commercial electricians who specialise in this field have the expertise to complete these larger scale electrical jobs with precision.
