Q: HOW DO I SCHEDULE WORK WHEN I ACCEPT AN ESTIMATE?
A:

  1. Carefully read the original proposal that West Side Electric sent you, your answer might be in the smaller print in the lower portion of the proposal. Once that is done make a list of your questions.
  2. If you need to make changes or have questions regarding pricing, fixture colors of trims or devices, please call your estimator, whose name and number are at the bottom of your proposal.If you want to schedule your job, please contact the office manager. We require a signed copy of the proposal or an email stating that you accept the work. We will also need a deposit of 50%, which can be paid over the phone. You may also mail us a signed copy with a check. Once the deposit is made and we have a signed copy (or email acceptance), your paperwork goes to our service manager who will contact you to schedule your job.
