Fitting a shaver socket is a relatively straightforward task, but as with any type of work involving electricity, it is best to fully understand the job before getting started, and if in doubt at any stage, call in a professionals.
Getting Started - The first job is to work out where the cables and electricity supply runs through the house, and working out where the best place would be to have the shaver socket, and how it is to be connected into the mains.
