Whether you need help installing a light switch, wiring an outlet or running a wire to a new lighting fixture, the Handy platform will connect you with the right electrical service professional with the right experience.

Skilled and Capable

Wherever electricity is concerned, you want to know that you’ve booked the best electrician for the job. All the electrical contractors on the Handy platform are background checked, so you know you’re not letting a complete stranger into your home. Every pro is rated and reviewed by past customers as well, so you can rest assured that they have a track record of excellence. Whether you need a single residential electrician for a quick job, or someone to help rewire your home, the Handy platform helps connect you with the best electrician possible.

When you book electrical contractors through the Handy platform, you can be sure that they’ll turn up on time and ready to work. Using the Handy app or website, you can pick the time you want your electrician to arrive. Get on with the important things in your day, secure in the knowledge that electrical help is on its way.

Should your situation change, you can cancel or reschedule your appointment—we just ask that you provide 24 hours’ notice.

The Best Electrical Service

Ready to Take Charge of Any Electrical Job

A Handy electrician will always arrive with everything they need to get the work done. When you use the Handy platform, you’ll be asked to input some details about the job you need doing. Using that information, your electrical contractor will make sure that they bring the required tools and equipment, so you won’t have to rush down to the hardware store to buy anything. Don’t panic if you don’t even own basic tools! Electrical contractors on the Handy platform take their responsibility to their customers very seriously.

Shockingly Qualified Professional Electricians

Even wiring an outlet can come with its own set of potential hazards. Book your electrician through Handy and you'll be connected with electrician professionals who have plenty of experience with the work you’re asking them to complete. They will provide you with top-notch service at a price point that won’t break the bank. When you use Handy to find the best electrician in your area, you'll be connected with a qualified electrical handyman that will serves your needs and your budget.

No Job Too Big or Small

Handy electrical contractors are used to working on jobs of all sizes. It doesn't have to be a huge, complete electrical rewiring job to warrant using the services of a professional. Many of our customers use electrical contractors for small jobs, just to make sure that it's done safely and to required standards. Many Handy customers book an electrician for someone else. You might have an elderly relative or disabled friend who can't deal with minor tasks—booking an electrician through Handy to help them out is a great way to get those electrical services done and prevent further problems.

Our Handy man went above and beyond to connect our TV. He even left us a FreeSat box and a remote control free of charge. Amazing!

CHRIS F.

Vladimir was on time and efficient, very friendly and super professional. I had trouble deciding which ceiling lamp to choose and he was really patient, considerate and helpful. I couldn't recommend him highly enough, a fantastic handyman. Thank you for a job well done.

Rich P.

Turned up on time, polite, worked quickly, quiet, and efficiently. Got the job done. Would highly recommend.

James A.

Carlos was fantastic. He went above and beyond and explained my options each step of the way through. I had thrown a few different tasks his way and none of them were a problem whatsoever. Needless to say, everything is working perfectly. Very knowledgeable and personable and really great with pets which makes things SO much easier. I have three dogs who can all be a handful when barking away in the rooms with people over, but he was very friendly and the dogs calmed down immediately and settled in which I think as a pet owner says a lot... Highly recommend him for anything you may need - will be using him again without question!

Sara S.

Leonard was very knowledgeable, professional, and helpful. He came for one fixture but when I asked for help with a couple of other items in the apt., he was more than willing to help with those, too.

Tara H.

Jerome was super helpful and made the impossible possible. Top notch service. Right on time and happy with the final product. Thank you!
