Q: Do I need a qualified electrician?

Yes, you definitely need a qualified electrician. Letting anybody fix your electrical problems can bring about serious legal problems, especially is serious problems arise. In fact, it is illegal to work as an electrician without a license.

Q: Do you have insurance?

Yes, we have insurance, which is a legal requirement. This means that any contingent problems that may come about as a result of our work will be covered by this insurance, and not you as would be the case with an uninsured provider.

Q: Can you fix broken lights?

Yes, we can fix broken lights. No electrical issue is too small for us, and we also understand that fixing lights can pose some risks that only a properly trained person can understand.

Q: What is the cause of electric shocks?

A person gets electric shocks when electric current is passing through the body. The simple reason for this is being in contact with a uninsulated conductor of electric current. Generally, when unexpected shocks occur, for instance, when making regular use of an electrical gadget, it indicates the presence of electric faults which can be fixed by an electrical contractor.

Q: What is the average cost of an electrician?

The truth is, the cost of an electrician will vary depending on who you hire, and the reason you have hired them. For instance, fixing a broken light will not cost the same as say, conducting complex electrical installations. On average, electricians who handle call outs cost an average of $75 in the country. Luckily, the average for NSW is the lowest at $68.
