The language of lights is colourful and extensive.

When it comes down to it, though, you just want the lights you have (or the lights you intend to have) to be installed safely, correctly, and to work as they should.

That’s what The Handy Squad’s electricians are here for, ready to deal with all your lighting needs.

When it comes to changing light bulbs – and we change many thousands of them every year – in most cases one of our handymen is more than capable of completing the task.

Beyond this, however, we recommend booking an experienced electrician, whether it be for replacing a light fitting, running a cable to a new location, or changing a transformer.

The Handy Squad’s electricians:

  • – Change light bulbs
  • – Change light starters
  • – Change light transformers
  • – Change light fittings
  • – Change light switches
  • – Check lighting circuit cables
  • – Trace lighting faults and repair them

This list is not exhaustive so please get in touch to find out how we can help to get your lights working.

We can also assist with more complicated lighting work, including notifiable jobs such as adding a new lighting circuit or installing lighting in a special location such as a bathroom or kitchen (the proximity of water to electricity and exposed skin is what makes these areas ‘special’ and therefore subject to additional regulations).

You can contact us by phoning 0800-0 12 12 12, by using our simple booking form, or by emailing us on
