5 Things To Look For In A Melbourne Electrician

5 Things To Look For In A Melbourne Electrician

When you’re in an emergency or just want to bring in a Melbourne 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 Melbourne‘ in your web browser. Take a look at our handy guide instead.

1. Your Melbourne electrician should be available when you need them

Lack of availability and waiting an age for an electrician to turn up is one of the most common gripes you’ll hear. There is nothing worse than taking a day off work or leaving early to greet your electrician and they don’t rock up! When you contact a Melbourne electrician, your first question should be about availability.

No one wants to wait weeks, or even days, for an electrician to come out. Here at Metropolitan Electrical Contractors, we can always have an electrician at your home the same day you contact us and often within one hour*! We aim to provide a speedy and professional service, every day of the year.

2. Your electrician should use the latest tools and equipment

Modern electrical installations and appliances are often technologically advanced and complicated to work on. For that reason, your electrician is going to need more than a spanner and a crimping tool. Luckily for you, our Metropolitan electricians utilise the latest tools and equipment to ensure all of our work is to the highest possible standard.

Every time a Metropolitan Electrical Contractors electrician attends your property they arrive in a van stocked with all the latest and greatest tools to complete almost every job on the spot. Those shiny blue vans are for more than just parking on main roads!

3. Your Melbourne electrician should be qualified and licensed

The last thing you want in Melbourne is your electrician rocking up with a sausage roll in one hand and a Big M in the other. It’s unprofessional and lends you to think that they may not have the right licenses.

You should never ever use an unqualified or unlicensed person to complete electrical work in your home. It’s simply not worth the risk. On top of that, any parts or appliances installed by anyone other than a qualified electrician will have their warranty voided in the event of a problem.

4. Your electrician should offer clear and upfront pricing

Clear pricing is always important but it’s even more important in these tough economic times when most of us are already doing it tough. You want to find out exactly how much your electrical work is going to cost before you agree to the work. This will let you know exactly what you are up for and there will be no hidden surprises.

Here at Metropolitan Electrical Contractors, Melbourne electricians will always talk you through your quote so that there are no nasty surprises.

5. Your Melbourne electrician should be neat and tidy

It might seem trivial to some but we value the importance of cleanliness and tidiness at Metropolitan Electrical Contractors. We make sure that our electricians are always well presented, courteous and friendly.

Perhaps most importantly, they will 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.

When you need an electrician in Melbourne, there really is no other option.
