Hi guys,

I need one of these replaced:


I have a new one but don't have the skills/tools to do so myself.
Is there anyone in the Kilbirnie region that is able to help (by the 25th) or recommend an electrician to do so?
Our lease ends on the 25th so would like this done by then.

Cheers

"electricians" and "kilbirnie" in your favourite search engine will yield a treasure trove of results.

It's a house we were renting, but the back of the couch damaged the plate.

I was hoping to get an idea of reliable electricians.

Just be aware that anybody coming in to do it legally has to be a licensed electrician.

You could replace it yourself if it was your own property, but in this case it's not. It's only a quick 5 min job for somebody who knows that they're doing.

Your problem will be the limited amount of time. Call at least three now and ask for a price and availability. It's an easily priced job. Worst case you can give the verbal quotes and an average price to the landlord as you leave.
