How will i choose the good electrical company?
If everything is okay and the company is in the registry, it's good to check does it responds to the Customer Responsibility Act.
The more you know about the company, the easier for choosing a trustful provider.
Shortly this law means, that the service buyer is responsible to check the rightfulness and legitimacy of the service providers operating. By this, you can protect yourself from the grey economy companies and troubles with the law.
First of all, you can find the company in Safety and Chemical office's (TUKES) registry of operators.
There you can check does the company has needed rights and allowances for providing the electrical services. All needed information for search usually finds on the company's website.

How much electrical services usually costs?

Today, the prices of electricity services in Finland start at € 45 per hour.
However, the reasonable price is 55-60 € /h, with which you can be sure that you will get a quality result.
Low prices are attractive, but generally indicate poor staff qualifications and uneven service quality.
Quality monitoring and assurance takes time and resources that cannot be covered by € 40 per hour.
By choosing such firms, you run the risk of paying twice because the repair of the finished job takes longer, so the bill is much larger when it should be in the beginning.

What Kind of contract Do I need?
When an electrical contractor's customer is a private individual, a consumer, there are many provisions relating to trading and contracting that do not apply to trade between traders.
The choice of the type of contract form is influenced by both the position of the customer and the quality and scope of the electrical work to be ordered.
Contract forms
It is recommended to use ready-made forms, as all the most important things have been taken into account in the ready-made forms.
In the construction industry, various contract forms and general contract terms have been developed to facilitate and speed up the conclusion of contracts.
Choosing contract
The Finnish Association of Electricity and Telecommunications Contractors has negotiated a contract form and general terms and conditions, REYS-8 1995, for contracts referred to in Chapter 8 of the Consumer Protection Act with a VAT-inclusive price of less than approximately EUR 10,000. The RYS-9 1998 terms and conditions based on Chapter 9 of the Consumer Protection Act and the tender and contract forms are applicable to contracts over 10,000 euros.
Depending on the scope of the work, either the Consumer Protection Act, the general terms and conditions for construction works REYS-8 or the general terms and conditions for consumer works RYS-9 apply to consumer work. Agreements between companies and entities, on the other hand, are governed by the general terms and conditions of the construction sector YSE 98.

Customer responsibility
Finishing the project
When main work is done, the contractor is obliged to make an inspection and make the necessary measurements. He then drafted and signed a report on the work he had done.
Be sure to request a copy of this document as you may need it for your insurance or housing company.
Always remember that you are always responsible for both the condition of the electrical networks and equipment and the legality and outcome of the contractor's activities under the Electrical Safety Act and the Customer Responsibility Act.
You can buy all the accessories directly from the contractor at a better price. Usually, the contractor has customer accounts in all electrical supply stores, from where he can pick up everything he needs at a discounted price.
Anyway, some contractors charge more for supplies. Be sure to ask directly about this. If you wish, you can compare the prices offered online, for example in the taloon.fi store.
