5 things to look for in a Perth electrician

5 things to look for in an Perth electrician

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

1. Punctuality

Having an electrician arrive at your property when you want them to is one of the most important aspects. What point is there to an electrician who says they’ll arrive between 9-12 and finally rocks up at 2 pm with an iced coffee in one hand and a sausage roll in the other? Nobody wants that. You want to look for a company who provides you with a timeframe and sticks to it! Ideally, a company like Metropolitan Electrical Contractors, who provide that reliability. 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 Perth.

2. 24 Hour Electricians

In this day and age, you want tradespeople who operate 24/7 and are there if you have an after hours emergency. 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!

3. Qualified and Licensed

You don’t just want some dodgy Bob in your home! Unlicensed electrical work is illegal and frowned upon in the industry. We know that 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. It’s not easy.

4. Experience

When you contact an electrician you want the reassurance you can count on them for any job. That’s because there’s no substitute for experience. You want an electrical who knows what they are doing and a company that has the experience to back their work! At Metropolitan Electrical Contractors, we have 25 years of experience. We know how to handle all general maintenance and emergency electrical jobs. No job is too big or too small for our team of qualified experts. From fan installs to a simple light replacement, we do it all.

5. Clear Pricing

For a routine job, you should never accept pricing uncertainty. An electrician should have confidence in their prices and provide upfront costs. You want to choose a company who will tell you exactly how much the job will cost before they commence. That way there are no hidden surprises and you know exactly what you are up for. Every Metropolitan electrician will go through the costs before any work begins, so there are no nasty surprises later on. They provide upfront pricing unlike many of the competitors. There is no charging by the hour around here!
