Toronto, ON -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/09/2015 -- Electrical problems can happen any time of the day or night. For citizens of Toronto, a new website Electrical Toronto (http://www.electricaltoronto.ca) has launched offering them a single database resource from which to locate listings of licensed electricians in Toronto, Canada, for both residential and commercial/industrial jobs.
Not all electricians are the same. In Toronto, no matter what electrician is chosen, they need to be a right match for the work that needs to be done. Small jobs can be handled by a single electrician while larger and industrial jobs need to be handled by two or more professionals. In the Province of Ontario, that also means they are required to show their contractor's license before beginning any work.
It's not just about safety when it comes to quality electrical work. It is an insurance issue. When having electrical work performed by someone who is not licensed, one risks an insurance company denying a claim if damage occurs or worse, being held liable should that work result in damage to the property of another. By reviewing potential candidates online ahead of time, this type of scenario may be avoided. Part of the licensing requirements to be an electrician in Toronto include carrying liability insurance of at least 2 million dollars.
The new website is already available and ready for use. Contractors are separated into two categories – residential electricians and commercial electricians. The site's user interface makes it easy to search and they offer advice through a blog feature that teaches users how to select the right contractor for their particular job such as based on experience and whether the contractor will be putting the needs of the customer first.
Contractors can also contact them for further information about how to get listed in the database as an added resource for recruiting customer leads.
