    UK Your number of phonecalls

    Hi there ! I'm looking for answers about the electrician industry in the UK in general for a service I'm developping. That'd be really nice if you could answer honestly : I need to know what's the average revenue per job for an electrician in the UK? How many phone calls and missed calls...

    Please warn your parents about the common scam calls, however sensible they are

    Off topic, but just a public information alert to talk to your parents/elderly relatives to let them know of the common phone scams. My mother fell for one today, even though she's still very much with it for 82 and usually pretty sensible... "police officer" from the fraud squad rang her...

    BEAMA Calls For EICRs To Be Done In UK Residential Buildings Every 5 Years

    An interesting report. I'm in favour. My own opinion is that ten years between inspection and testing of domestic installations is too long, and that this period should be reduced to five years. I particularly like the proposal that an EICR be compulsory whenever there is a change of occupancy...

    Too many calls!

    I was wandering what people do when they're busy as hell and have phone call after phone call from potential customers.

Now...

I've taken advice from the Sun Lounge - thanks everyone, but have since had a couple of calls from Easy MCS. Basically they got me to try their online system for a week...

    Calls from Manchester offering to get my Google listing to the top for my area!

    I wonder how many others are getting calls from an outfit in Manchester, that claims to be able to promote my webpage so it will come up at the top when someone searches for an electrician in my town? It almost sounds like Google themselves are calling (possibly that is the aim), but if you...

    Telephone Preference Service

    Anyone used them? I’m been driven insane with payment protection calls, up to three a day. I’ve registered with TPS in the hope they can get them stopped. They were recommended by Virgin Media.
