5 things to look for in a Gold Coast electrician

5 things to look for in a Gold Coast electrician

When you’re in an emergency or just want to bring in a Gold Coast electrician for routine maintenance, you want to call the best. They need to have the knowledge, experience and manners to make you feel at ease. There is no need to type in ‘electrician Gold Coast‘ in your web browser. Take a look at our handy guide instead.

1. Clear and Upfront Pricing

When you call an electrical company, you want upfront and clear pricing. For a routine job, you should never accept pricing uncertainty. Ideally, you want to hire an electrical company that provides upfront pricing. That way you know exactly what you are up for and there are no hidden costs before the job begins. Especially during uncertain times, we never recommend consenting to work until you have a clear knowledge of the price. The great thing about Metropolitan Electrical Contractors is that we do provide fixed price, upfront quotes that make the whole process clear and easy for you!

2. Qualifications

When it comes to electrically work, you need a qualified expert. Unlicensed electrical work is illegal on the Gold Coast and is heavily frowned upon in the industry. Yeah, you can probably get “mate’s rates” from your best friend’s… husband… cousin… but do you know if they’re completely above board? Electrical work is a complex trade that requires a four-year apprenticeship, and several other licenses and accreditations. If it was so easy, everyone would be doing their own electrical work! Here at Metropolitan Electrical Contractors, we have 25 years of experience to back our electrical work along with all the relevant qualifications.

3. Every Day Service

It’s frustrating when you can’t get an electrician at a time to suit you. Usually, it means taking time off work and waiting at home for hours. And nobody wants that! What you ideally want is an electrician who operates 24/7 and can be at your door when it suits you. That’s why Metropolitan Electrical Contractors is a leader in flexibility, with electricians scheduled around the clock. No matter the time, or day, we can organise for one of our electricians to visit you. And we always aim to live up to our promise of same day service within an hour* of your call!

4. Neat and Tidy

The last thing you want is a scruffy bugger rocking up to your luxurious Gold Coast property. You want a company who prides themselves on expert service. One that will make sure their 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. Punctuality

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 with an iced coffee in one hand and a sausage roll in the other? 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 on the Gold Coast. 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!
