The Only Circuit Breaker Resource You Will Ever Need

Fixing circuit breakers blog post with civid recycling logo

Time is your most valuable asset. You either get paid for that time or you don’t. It’s easy to be pulled away into tasks that eat up all of that valuable time for what seems like something simple, like searching for the right circuit breaker.

What’s the answer? Let someone else do that search and keep working. All it takes is a phone call or a quick visit to the online store on our website.

Your Circuit Breaker & Electrical Equipment Resource

Civic Recycling is your circuit breaker resource. We have an expert team loaded with Certified Breaker Technicians. Click here to make the call, let them know about the parts you need to get the job done and get an answer within minutes. Even better, have it all shipped to your project and get back to work with the right parts in hand.

The experts can help you with obsolete parts or hard-to-find electrical products from small residential breakers to massive mains big enough to run a large facility.

This includes new and top-quality parts, reconditioned by certified experts. Of course, the breakers and equipment come with a guarantee, so you and your customers can proceed with the peace of mind knowing you’re working with the best.

Add an expert electrical supplier to your team

You are paid for your skill as a professional contractor, not for the time you spend thumbing through multiple websites looking for a part. When you have a valuable resource at your disposal, such as an expert in supplying tough-to-find parts, use it.

  • Our experts know the parts you need and can get them in your hands.
  • You don’t need to do your own search. It’s already done.
  • One phone call or a search in our easy-to-use Online Store will give you the answers you need immediately, taking the guesswork out of acquiring parts.
  • All this adds up to you and your team getting back on the job.

The frustration of the wrong or low-quality circuit breaker parts

Want to double down on a time waster? All you need to do is spend time digging around for a part, order it and then learn it’s the wrong breaker. Want a complete disaster? Install that low-quality breaker and then return to the project later because it doesn’t work. No one wants to do the job twice.

No one can afford to do a search for a part, buy the wrong one and have it malfunction. It’s a serious risk to the success of your business. Hunting down the right transformer, motor control, fuse or receptacle can be an overwhelming task and a job you shouldn’t waste time doing when you have an expert at your fingertips – on the phone or online.  

Leave this job to the experts in the field of electrical supply and move forward with your project. For more about our electrical products click here or contact us for more information on your specific needs.

Circuit Breakers – When Amazon Is NOT The Best Place To Buy

square d circuit breakers yellow warehouse civic recycling switch on off electrical products shop
As the world changes, so do the ways in which we shop. With technology constantly evolving many people have begun to do a lot of their shopping online. When there is the option to shop from sites like Amazon, who seemingly carry any and every product available, it streamlines life and makes shopping for hard to find items a lot easier. Having the ability to get some of your groceries and clothes and a baby seat all in one place makes life a whole lot easier. It would appear, on the surface at least, that buying everything from a site like this is a no-brainer. So what about Circuit Breakers? Maybe safety is another factor we should consider as well.

Benefits of a Specialty Service

While there’s truth to a lot of what was just mentioned, occasionally purchasing a product that requires more thought from a place like this is a little risky. While a site like Amazon caters to everyone, it lacks the specific advice and personal touch some of these products require. Buying certain things, like circuit breakers for instance, require knowledge to ensure the right product is being purchased for specific jobs. Some buying circuit breakers know what they’re looking for, many others, however, do not. Going into Amazon and arbitrarily purchasing a circuit breaker in the hopes that it will get the job done is not a smart way to operate.

When purchasing circuit breakers, whether new or reconditioned, there needs to be a certain expectation that it’s the right product for the job and that it’s going to work to the levels expected. Where sites like Amazon fall short is ensuring that all of these prerequisites are met. Amazon does a lot of things extremely well, offering nuanced advice and guidance specific to circuit breakers doesn’t happen to be one of them.


Why Choose Breakers from Civic Recycling?

When purchasing a circuit breaker, doing so from a place that specializes in such products is the best plan of attack. There are a number of reasons why looking at sites like our own, Civic Recycling, specializes in circuit breakers and have an intimate knowledge the products, will bear fruit in the long run. There are a number of reasons why specialty sites will be beneficial when purchasing products such as these, and here are a few of them:
