5 Things To Look For In A Brisbane Electrician

5 Things To Look For In A Brisbane Electrician

Whether it’s an emergency or you just want a Brisbane electrician for routine maintenance, you want the best and most trustworthy. They should be friendly and well presented. There is no need to type in ‘electrician Brisbane‘ in your web browser. Take a look at our handy guide instead.

1. Clear and Upfront Pricing

When you hire an electrical company, the first thing you want to look for is transparent, clear and upfront pricing. That way there are no hidden surprises and you know exactly what you are up for. Luckily for you, Metropolitan Electrical Contractors will go through the costs before any work begins, so there are no nasty surprises later on. We provide upfront and fixed pricing unlike many of the competitors. There is no charging by the hour around here!

2. Qualified and Licensed Electricians in Brisbane

The last thing you want is a dodgy tradie rocking up to your door with a coke in one hand and a sausage roll in the other. Here at Metropolitan Electrical Contractors, our electricians are fully qualified and licensed to complete all electrical jobs. With 25 years of experience to back our fantastic service, we are the number one choice in Brisbane for emergency and general maintenance electrical work.

An unlicensed electrician is a complete no-no. Electrical work is not easy and requires a four-year apprenticeship, besides several other accreditation and licences. Using a fully qualified electrician means your warranty isn’t void for starters. You have to be able to rely on their work and have confidence in their ability. After all, completing unlicensed electrical work is illegal in Brisbane.

3. 24/7 Service

If your lights stop working after business hours and its not the fault of your electrical provider, you are going to need a company who provides 24/7 service. And that is exactly what we do in Brisbane. It doesn’t matter what time of the day or night, our electricians can be at your door within 1 hour for all emergency and general maintenance electrical jobs.

It’s frustrating when electricians won’t come at a time that suits you. Usually, you have to take time off work and wait around at home for hours. And nobody wants that! But, believe us when we say we always do our best to live up to our promise of within an hour same day service*!

4. Neat and Tidy

The last thing you want is a scruffy bugger rocking up to your Brisbane home. Nobody wants someone who is covered in dirt to enter their property. And the great thing is if you book an electrician with Metropolitan, you won’t have to worry about any of that! We will make sure our electricians clean up after themselves and are presented in a tidy manner.

All of our staff at Metropolitan Electrical Contractors will arrive at your home in a clean and tidy van. They will always be well presented, courteous and friendly. Most importantly, they’ll leave your home in the same condition as they found it, ensuring any dust or debris is removed and floors around the worksite are swept.

5. Punctual Brisbane Electricians

You want an electrician that turns up when they say they will. There is nothing more frustrating than a tradesman that rocks up hours late or not at all. What point is there to an electrician who says they’ll arrive midday and finally rocks up at 4 pm? There is nothing worse than taking the day off work for electrical service, only for them to rock up late or not at all.

Punctuality should never be an add on, it should be a part of the basic package when it comes to booking an electrician in Brisbane. You want a company who can provide you with a three hour time frame and that is exactly what we do here at Metropolitan Electrical Contractors!
