    Why serviceteam?

    Just in case you are wondering, here are some of the reasons which make Serviceteam Ltd the consumer choice.

    Year’s of Experience

    Since electrical work is often complex and dangerous, it’s always advisable to engage ‘fully loaded’ electricians with the qualification, years of experience and electrical ‘nouse’ to tackle any domestic or commercial electrical projects.

    Fair prices

    Price is a determining factor when engaging a service provider. It’s unwise to pay too much but worse to pay too little. The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot. If you deal with the lowest bidder it’s always advisable to add something for the risk you run. If you do that then you will have enough to pay for something better. Wise words (John Ruskin 1819 – 1900).
    Serviceteam will quote a fair price commensurate with the quality of work expected

    Professionalism

    Q: How much does an electric boiler repair cost?
    A: Although it mainly depends upon the complexity of the problem, normal diagnostic/repair costs around £90 + VAT. We will guarantee to diagnose the problem within the first hour and fix, if we can. If materials or more time is needed serviceteam Ltd will supply a ‘fixed’ price and costed quote for the works.

    Q: How do I know when an electrical outlet is not safe?
    A: When the plug moves easily while touched or just falls out directly, or you notice the outlet to be warmer or simply hotter, its time to unplug the device and simply call service team electricians to help you out on the situation. If not taken care of properly, it can result in a fire.

    Q: Which areas of my house should have a Ground Force Circuit Interrupter protection?
    A: GFCI is recommended for all damp or wet locations including Bathrooms, sinks, kitchens, cellars/basements, garages, sheds, gardening equipment (mowers/trimmers/hedge cutters etc) in fact in any damp/moisture-prone areas especially when working outdoors. Every safety precaution must be taken to guard against the risk of electric shocks when working outside your property.

    Q: Will my property be habitable during the repair?
    A: Well, it does depend on who you choose for your project. An experienced electrician will work cautiously and carefully to prevent unnecessary damage to your property. However if floorboards need to be lifted, it can make things more difficult but not impossible. You can rely on serviceteam Ltd. professionals to work with you and around you to avoid inconvenience.

    Q: How long does it take to completely rewire a house?
    A: It simply depends upon the size of your house. Where a small apartment can take up to a few days, or a maximum a week, a larger household will take two or more than two weeks. And by the way, you won’t have to leave your house during the process.

    Q: How long does it take to completely rewire a house?
    A: It depends upon the size of your property and the level of upgrade required. A small one-bedroom apartment can take up to a few days or so. Much larger properties can take a few weeks or more. We endeavor to keep disruption to services and family routines to an absolute minimum to avoid vacating your property. We will, of course, advise you on this once a survey has been completed.

    Q: What does the flickering of fluorescent lights mean?
    A: Flickering of bulbs points towards power fluctuations, bulb failure, or in a majority of the cases, improperly installed bulbs. Moreover, if the bulb turns on/off in cycles, it’s time to replace the ballast.

    Q: How do I know if my property needs to be re-wired?
    A: Well there are a number of tell tale signs (listed below) that could be happening on a regular basis that suggest something is not right with the property’s wiring. First, have an EICR survey completed as the problem may not be as serious as first thought. Yes, there’s a cost involved, but you will know exactly what the issue is with the expert advice given. It may not require a full rewire, it may only require partial rewiring? However, it makes sense from a safety and financial point of view to be absolutely sure.

    These are the signs to watch out for that could suggest something is not right with the wiring:

  • Lights may constantly flicker or occasionally dim.
  • Inspecte the light bulb sockets, do they look charred?
  • Do the fuses constantly ‘blow?’
  • Sparking outlets. …
  • Switches or sockets discoloured through heat.
  • A faint burning smell of plastic/rubber.
  • Power surge fluctuations.
  • Over populated extension leads or multi outlet plugs.
  • Don’t delay call serviceteam Ltd. now, if you are experiencing any overheating problems with electrical outlets, as it usually points to an overloaded circuit.
    If an outlet is battling to power all the plugged-in appliances, it’s bound to be overworked and hot to the touch. Any loose or damaged wiring can also mean trouble and cause a buildup of heat.

    Our fully qualified electrical team will be happy to give advice on any household or commercial wiring project

    The serviceteam process

    Choose your preferred method? If not now but certainly in the future you’re likely to have something in your home or premises that needs repairing or replacing? When you do we have various ways we can approach your job;
    • Serviceteam completes so many jobs during a year that we can often provide you with a fixed price for the works without attending
    • Other jobs require am enquiry to be raised, so we can compile a quotation. Any photos provided will help us to assess requirements.
    • If your project is large or complex, we will assign one of our qualified engineers to visit and prepare a detailed quotation.
    • Alternatively, you can select serviceteam’s Pay by Time option, certainly if you have an emergency or a “to do” list made up of one or several minor jobs. When on site our engineer will appraise the works required and give an indication of how long the works are expected to take. If we are unable to complete the works within the first visit due to the need for extra time or materials, then we will provide you with a fixed price quotation for the extended works for consideration and authorisation before proceeding.
    Enquiries can be logged through our website, email, WhatsApp or by calling 020 3538 7067.

    What happens next?
    When booking online the details of your job, including your preferred time slot/s will be sent to our scheduling department where within one working hour, scheduling will assign the appropriately qualified engineer to your job. You will also receive an alert via email confirming your appointment. You can view details of your job and see a photo of the engineer who will be visiting. If we are unable to accommodate your job at the time requested, due to high demands on our resources, we will be in touch with alternative dates.

    Good to know about your deal?
    If our tradesperson assesses your job and believes that the scope of the works need adjusting in terms of time/materials and price, they will seek you approval before the work begins.

    How are tradespeople verified?
    All our tradespeople have the relevant trade specific qualifications, have been rigorously screened and come under serviceteam’s insurance policies.

    How do we charge?
    At the point of booking your service we will log your preferred payment details card number etc. Payment will not be taken from your credit/debit card until the works have been completed, usually within 24 hours. Please note credit card transactions are limited to £150.00. maximum. A copy of your paid invoice and a job-sheet will be emailed to you when payment has been approved. Our dedicated Operations Team, based in London, are on call to discuss any current or future jobs as well as managing your project through to completion. If you prefer to pay with a different card to the one used when booking your appointment, please ask our trades person whilst on site to call the office and update your details.

    How do refunds work?
    You are eligible for a refund if you cancel within 14 days of booking or the job has not been started and is not within the cancellation time frame.

    What if I want to cancel the appointment?
    We understand that priorities and plans change, and you may need to rearrange/cancel your booking. Should this be the case please let us know as soon as possible so we can make the necessary alterations to our work schedules. If we don’t receive enough notice of your cancellation or appointment rescheduling within the terms outlined below, then there is a possibility you will be charged a cancellation fee.

    Cancellation windows
    (1.) A charge of £10.00 (ten pounds) will be payable if the service is cancelled within 24 hours. (2.) If the scheduled appointment is cancelled within 12 hours (or less) a 50% charge of the booking fee will be applied (3.) If the appointment is cancelled when engineer arrives at the property (on the doorstep - photos and times will be provided) and within our texted 3-hour time slot the full booking fee will become payable. None of the above charges are profit items and only contribute to the cost of late cancellation/lost business.

    Do I need to provide parking?
    As you know parking in and around London can be problematic and extremely costly (depending on the area) if a parking space can be reserved for our engineer it would be appreciated and help increase efficiency of the service provided (no feeding meters etc or mobile app updating). The quote we have provided does not include the cost of parking and/or congestion charge which will be added to the final invoice (if applicable). Please inform your personal account manager if any special parking instructions like parking permit/free parking can be provided. For properties on the rim of the congestion zone and it is not possible for our engineer to attend without entering/clipping the charge zone, we may need to add the charge to the final bill ? Please check with your personal account manager in advance of your appointment if you’re not sure?
