If your questions aren’t answered here, please get in touch.
Are your electricians licensed?
That’s a great question! The state of South Carolina requires that only the owner needs to be licensed and all the electricians’ employees can work under that license but Transworld requires that all our electricians either have their Journeyman or Master License or obtain it within a year of being hired. We do have apprentices that are required to go to school to obtain their Journeyman and Master License. Also, we have an unlimited electrical license in South Carolina, North Carolina, and Georgia. SC License #M2368.
We have NO laborers or helpers working for us.
What types of payment do you accept?
We accept checks, cash, and Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and American Express as credit card payments. There is a 4% service fee for credit card purchases over $1,000.00
Do you work on appliances?
We do not. We can check the connections and voltage right up to the appliances. We recommend calling an appliance repair person.
Do you work on food trucks or mobile homes?
We do not work on food trucks or mobile homes.
Do you service generators?
We do not currently install or service generators at the moment but do install transfer switches.
Do you carry everything you need to do the job on your service trucks?
We carry a very large variety of commonly used electrical materials on our trucks at all times. We also keep these items stocked weekly. However, because styles, colors, and technology is constantly changing, we may not always have everything needed to complete a project. We do have a strong relationship with all electrical suppliers in the area that help us get the parts we need quickly and efficiently.
Do you offer senior citizen and military discounts?
Currently, we do not offer senior citizen or military discounts.
When is the best time to call an electrician?
Any time you need indoor or outdoor electrical work done, that’s the time to call on a professional, licensed electrician. What might seem like a simple situation to you might actually be a potential danger. Most electrical fires occur because a homeowner didn’t think there was a serious problem.
Here are some situations where it would be wise to call an electrician:
- You need to upgrade your service.
- Your lights are dimming and flickering.
- You need to add some additional outlets.
- You have power surges when the refrigerators kicks in.
- You keep tripping a circuit breaker or blowing a fuse.
- Any time something unusual is happening with your electrical system.
