For over 10 years MG London has been ‘keeping it local’, using our expertise, our experience but most importantly our local knowledge to deliver a service to the people of central London. From Gas Safe plumbers through to fully qualified electricians, builders and building maintenance professionals, we’ve consistently drawn on the expertise of a locally-based team to do the work.
So what are the advantages of using a locally-based electrician?
They know the area – and the housing stock
Every location has its own special features, whether it’s the type of property, whether an area is prone to subsidence or damp problems, or if materials like asbestos could be an issue. Certain types of properties are indicative of particular locations, so for example you may have elegant townhouses in Kensington and Chelsea, or Edwardian terraces just over the bridge in Battersea. Why does this make a difference? Well, these different types of housing are constructed in particular ways, which can have a direct bearing on how an electrician goes about fixing a new fitting, runs conduit through walls or installs under-floor heating. That essential local knowledge allows a MG London electrician to anticipate what kind of challenges they may encounter, and adapt their approach to account for them.
They can respond quickly
Knowing your way around central London is essential if you’re going to respond quickly to electrical emergencies. MG London electricians use that local knowledge just like your local black cab driver – to avoid the jams and congestion and get to your job quickly and without any fuss. The faster they can respond, the quicker you can get back to your daily routine – particularly important if you’re running a business in central London.
They build up customer trust and loyalty
If you own a home or business in central London then it’s inevitable that you will need the services of an electrician more than once. Even with the benefit of online recommendation sites, it can be hard to find a local electrician in Chelsea or Kensington you can trust completely. So by getting to know their customers and building up a solid working relationship with them, MG London electricians in central London also develop long-term trust and loyalty among both business customers and homeowners. It’s this that probably matters most to our customers – knowing that they can call on a local electrician they know and trust every time.
And that point alone is probably the single most compelling argument for ‘keeping it local’.
