How to Recognise Reputable NICEIC Electricians in Oldham

Based in Rochdale, Livewires cover all parts of the surrounding Greater Manchester area including Oldham. If you’ve been looking for a reputable domestic electrician, our company is here to help you with a wide service range that covers everything from minor electrical repair work to full property rewires.


Homeowners in Oldham should check the credentials of electricians carefully and here are just a few of the more important things to consider:

Training and Qualifications

Ensure your electrician is competent. The right background is important so always remember to ask questions about City & Guilds or NVQ training. Does the electrician work to BS7671 standards? Is the company compliant with the Wiring Regulations 17th edition? Are your electricians compliant with Part P of the current Building Regulations?


These are all considerations that should be the minimum qualifications of any electrician in the Oldham area. Homeowners should also ensure that any contractor they choose has NICEIC accreditation. This is the electrical industry’s biggest seal of approval and an indication that your electrician is competent, professional and reliable.

Flexible and Adaptable

If you live in Oldham and need a team of electricians in the middle of the night, will your current company be there to help you? Livewires provide emergency electrical services on a 24 hour basis, 7 days of the week. If your electrician isn’t prepared to help you when you’re faced with a potentially life-threatening situation, shouldn’t you be looking elsewhere?


Livewires have a flexible and adaptable approach to customer service. Our electricians can travel to properties throughout Oldham, day or night, to ensure all dangerous situations are made safe. We promise that we’ll never leave you waiting around until morning.

Standards of Workmanship

The truest reflection of any electrician in the Oldham area is the standard of workmanship they provide. Electricians who don’t guarantee the quality of their work should be avoided. Livewires, as an accredited NICEIC company, have the support of a leading industry body that provides unconditional support for both consumers and contractors.


We offer extended, insurance-backed warranties on all completed projects in the Oldham and Greater Manchester areas. Work undertaken by our electricians will meet compliancy standards both now and into the future. Finished projects are meticulously inspected and tested to ensure we meet all current industry standards.
