Finding a tradesman for a socket replacement?

What do you need to know about socket replacement?
Luckily, replacing a socket is a relatively simple job. However, all electrical work must be done in accordance with Building Regulations for the sake of safety. This is another important reason to have the work done by a qualified Pro.
One thing that you should be aware of is that the cost of replacing a socket is often too low. By this we mean that your electrician may have to charge their minimum callout fee. If this is the case, do not try and argue around the price. Your tradesman will need to cover their own expenses, after all. Instead, try and think of other jobs that your tradesman can do to make up the cost, such as replacing other sockets for you. With this in mind, you could expect your socket replacement project to cost around £30 to £40 minimum.
The cost of having a handyman replace your socket will usually be lower than having an electrician doing it. However, ‘handyman’ is not a role that requires specific qualifications. Because of this, if you are considering hiring a handyman it is important that you make sure they have the certifications and experience to be able to do the job. Do not just assume they can!
