You'll need to start doing your homework once you've compiled a list of emergency electricians. You can find the top ones in your region in a variety of ways. It will take a little bit of time but will be well worth it.
Make a phone call to the building code office in your town. Provide them with the names of the electricians you've located. Inquire if they have a county-issued license. Any that aren't licensed should be crossed off your list right away. Keepers are those who have obtained a license.
You'll need to get in touch with the Better Business Bureau now. They assist customers in resolving any issues they may have with local businesses. The Better Business Bureau also assigns ratings to businesses, which assist customers to decide whether or not to do business with them. Request the rating of each electrician. Any that have received several complaints should be removed from the list.
Finally, contact the remaining electricians on the list. Explain the job in detail and get a quote. He'll almost certainly want to come out to the Jobsite and offer you a detailed written estimate. That's a positive development. You can choose the best estimate when you've received all of your estimates.
