Choosing a quality electrician can be a challenging process. At first it may appear difficult to differentiate one from the other, and many of them talk a big game, and make all types of promises.

Careful consideration must be given in order to determine which one has the necessary qualifications, skills, knowledge and experience to be able to effectively and safely meet your particular electrical needs.

Here at Future Electrical Services, to help you see through the clutter, we’ve done the hard work for you. We’ve composed this handy guide of the qualities to look for, to make sure you don’t end up a dud, but with a truly professional proven electrician.

Licensed Electrician & Insurance

The number one requirement in selecting a quality electrician is to make sure that they have the relevant licencing, and are covered by the appropriate insurance in order to be able to adequately perform the required electrical work.

In Australia, the Electrical Regulatory Authorities Council (ERAC), mandates licensing for all electrical workers, once an electrician has completed the relevant qualification program they are issued with a licence number. When selecting a potential electrician, ask for their licencing number.
If they are unable to produce one, it means you’re not dealing with a professional, and you should walk away.

When it comes to public liability insurance, this is another vital piece of coverage. As long as a business has this type of insurance, any potential injury or damage to property that may occur, will not be incurred at your expense. It is an absolute must for any professional organisation.

Here at Future Electrical Services our team is composed of highly experienced, fully licensed electricians. They strictly comply with Workplace Health and Safety Standards and work to high professional standards. We also have comprehensive public liability insurance, meaning you are completely protected from any potential mishaps, giving you complete peace of mind.

Social Proof

When trying to assess whether an electrician will be up to the job, it’s always wise to do some research and identify what type of reputation they have in the industry.

Two key metrics to help you achieve this are; customer reviews and any available proof of their previous work. Both of these can be obtained directly on their website or via Google reviews.
This will give you a good sense of the quality of work they have previously produced, and the overall customer service they provide to their customers.

Here at Future Electric Services we believe in putting our customers first. Our service has been designed to be professional and to provide the most convenience to our customers.

Over our 10 years in the industry, we have built a solid customer base who can vouch for the outstanding quality of work we deliver. We’re highly rated on Google and you can check out

Professionalism and attention to detail matter in any profession. If someone doesn’t quite look the part or arrives late, chances are you’re not going to get a professional service and end up with a poor quality job. This is especially true in professions like electricians, painters, builders, and other home improvement fields.

It’s important that any prospective electrician not only looks the part, being well presented and in uniform, but are actually punctual and deliver exactly what they promise.

Here at Future Electric Services we pride ourselves on providing customers with an on-time, quality, and personalised expert service.

We are dedicated to ensuring that every job is completed in a timely manner so that we can be in and out of your premises as soon as possible and let you carry on with your life as normal. We also appreciate that you have invited us into your home, so we make sure after the job is complete, we leave your home in the same pristine condition it was when we entered.


Unfortunately in the trade industry, we’ve all heard one or two horror stories. There’s the long waiting times, the unfinished jobs, the no shows, and even the initially attractive prices, only for you to be later hit with a nasty financial surprise.

At Future Electric Services, integrity and honesty are central pillars of our business. We’re a long standing family owned and operated business who have built strong trust within our community.
Depending on the service provided, we offer from 5 years, all the way up to lifetime guarantees on the quality of our work.

Sound Building Structural Knowledge

Finally you want to find an electrician with a breadth of experience who can effectively handle a variety of electrical work.
In the electrical industry there’s no one size fits all approach. Builders understands that each building structure whether it be residential or commercial has its own unique set of requirements. For example more modern homes have a lot of lighting and device connectivity needs, while older homes, some of which can even be heritage listed, require special attention to be provided to existing legacy wiring infrastructure.

Even when it comes to commercial structures, a deep wealth of knowledge is required in order to be able to effectively apply the appropriate electrical guidelines for increased complex wiring needs.

Here at Future Electric Services we’re not the new boys in town. We’ve been in the industry for more than 10 years, during which time we have built up extensive in-house knowledge in a variety of both residential and commercial environments.

We have proven experience in everything from, laying down the correct support structures to handle increased lighting fixtures (i.e. chandeliers) in residential homes, to designing and implementing electrical solutions during the critical installation phase of new buildings and commercial projects.

No matter your electrical needs, big or small, we’ve got you covered.

Finding a quality electrician can be a daunting task. There are a lot of players in the market making various claims, and promising the world. In order to see through the clutter, and ensure you receive a quality professional service, it’s important to do some research and identify some key essential characteristics.

As a starting point, it’s an absolute must that they hold a current licence number and possess professional indemnity insurance. Check out their website and reviews to see the quality of work they have previously produced, and the overall customer service they provide to their customers.
Pay particular attention to the breadth of services and expertise they possess, and what type of guarantees they make on on-time delivery and pricing.

All of these factors will help you weed out any pretenders and settle on only the best.
