Why should you hire a Transworld, Inc. Electrician?
We have an unlimited electrical license in South Carolina, North Carolina, and Georgia. SC License #M2368. The state of South Carolina requires that only the owner needs to be licensed and all the employees can work under that license but Transworld requires that all our electricians have their Journeyman or Master License.
We have NO laborers or helpers working for us.
Bonded & Insured:
When hiring an electrician to work on your electrical system it is crucial that they have sufficient insurance coverage. Electrical contractor should carry enough insurance so that you are protected against a significant loss and worker’s compensation insurance.
Many smaller electrical contractors or handyman don’t carry sufficient insurance and this could leave you liable for any damages that could occur in your home due to or during electrical work.
Time and Material (T&M) pricing NOT flat-rate pricing:
Transworld, Inc. charges for time and material not upfront (flat rate) pricing. Studies have shown that flat-rate pricing is intentionally designed to dramatically increase both the customer’s cost and the contractor’s profit. Many times a contractor will charge various fees such as a ‘show up fee’, ‘diagnostic fee’, or ‘travel fee’ averaging $100-$125 and only then will they inform the customer of the flat rate cost of the job. The customer is now leveraged and invested in this company and will lose that initial cost of fees if they decide to contact another contractor. Also, many flat rate service companies pay their technicians on commission, which can cause controversy when diagnosis problems.
Our electricians typically run as a two-man crew. This is for the safety of our electricians and the safety of the customer. All of our electricians are CPR and First Aid certified and prepared to assist if an emergency arises.
OSHA Paragraphs 1910.269(l)(1)(i) and (ii) establish certain types of work where at least two employees must be present. OSHA determined that there was a need, with some types of work, for having an extra employee present. The preamble to the final standard presented OSHA’s rationale: in the event of an electric shock incident, the two-person requirement provides, “the immediate availability of a person trained in CPR [cardiopulmonary resuscitation].” The Agency also noted that an additional worker, “should be able to point out poor work practices to their fellow employees.”
