I need an electrician, does anyone have any referrals? I have called all listed in yellow pages in Harrodsburg and Danville. They schedule an appointment and don't show, or they say they will call back and don't, or ask to be called back, and don't answer phone. I have been doing this for three weeks, and still no electrician.

First off, the issue is in a manufactured home in Danville. The right side of the front of the home does not work. The outlets and the wall switches do not work at all. How can I contact you if you are interested?

This is not uncommon. Everyone wants to shed crocodile tears about "this economy" but when there's work to be done and money to be earned, they cannot be found. It's the same story with local small businesses. They're open five hours a day, five days a week.... and then wonder why they can't make a buck. Must be Obama's fault!

I had the same problem a few years ago trying to get a backhoe operator to do septic system, and no one ever showed, or returned calls. Could be a case of who you are, I'm not from here and really don't know many people.

Whoever you get, make sure they have a license. If they are a one man show, they by law have to have Master's & Contractor's license. And should be able to produce a Certificate of Insurance paper to you. Don't take a chance of someone burning your house down and not being qualified or insured. You might even find out who the Electrical Inspector is in Danville. Ask him who he would recomend. Just a friendly word of advise.

I'm actually a journeyman electrician, but I've been out of the trade for years. I'm no longer insured or bonded, so it's not a project that I would want to do.

The previous poster is 100% right.

Thanks for the info. I work for a contractor in Lexington, and very aware of the license and insurance issues. I know electricians in Lex, but was hoping to give someone close to home a little work. I appreciate the help. I may take the suggestion and check with inspector, I have a listing for all counties in state. Thanks again
