Why the Cheapest is Not Always the Best Choice

Were you into Legos as a kid?  Ever see the Dollar Store knockoffs and think you were getting an awesome deal but when you played with them you discovered they didn’t fit right, your models fell apart, Mom’s feet broke them, or they wouldn’t connect with your real Legos?

If you did, you learned early that Cheapest is not always best.

The same is true in the field of Electrical Contractors. When you receive a bid for a job, the cheapest – or even second cheapest option is not usually the best choice.

Make sure you are getting quoted for the same quality materials – sometimes a low bid indicates cheaper materials than you want.  Your home is your castle, make sure

the bids are using the same quality materials you wish and that you won’t be charged extra later for an “upgrade” to the quality you originally wanted.

Remember, that generally speaking, the quality of the work and materials are reflected in the pricing of the bid. Always read bids carefully and ask questions before accepting.

Hopefully, this will help you choose a contractor whose work you will be satisfied with in the long run.
