Do electrical contractors have insurance?

This is designed to insure customer safety and protection by requiring the licensed company maintain a minimum adequate general liability insurance policy. It also requires the company to be directly supervised by a licensed Master Electrician.
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY!!!!!!
It is absolute imperative that you check the status of any electrician before you hire them. There are MANY unlicensed electricians operating illegally all around Knoxville and smaller cities. These illegal electricians even advertise that they operate with insurance and proper license. Just because you find an electrician on the internet or in a phone book doesn’t mean they are licensed. Don’t be afraid to ask any electrical contractor for their license number. If the contractor is following the rules he will be happy to give it to you. Our license number is 00049782
