6 things to look for in an Adelaide electrician

Whether it’s an emergency or you just want an Adelaide 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 Adelaide‘ in your web browser. Take a look at our handy guide instead.

1. Your Adelaide electrician must be qualified and licensed

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 across the nation.

2. 24 Hour Electricians

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! 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 schedules electricians around the clock for your convenience.  We can arrange for one of our electricians to call no matter what time of day it is. And we always do our best to live up to our promise of within an hour same day service*!

3. Experienced Electrical Experts in Adelaide

When you contact an electrician you want to be sure that they can do any job. You need someone with experience. They should be able to handle anything. Experience means you can relax safe in the knowledge that things are in the hands of an expert. You want to choose a company that has years of experience to back their work. At Metropolitan Electrical Contractors, we have 25 years of experience behind us!

4. Punctual Electricians

You want an electrician that arrives at a suitable time. You don’t want an electrician who says they’ll arrive at midday and finally turn up at 2 pm with a coke in one hand and a pie 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 is essential when it comes to booking an electrician in Adelaide.

5. Clear Electrical Pricing

For a routine job, you should know exactly what the price is before things start. An electrician should tell you how much it is and provide upfront costs. Especially during uncertain times, we never recommend consenting to work until you have a clear knowledge of the price. Every Metropolitan electrician informs you of the price first up, eliminating any nasty surprises. They provide upfront pricing unlike many of the competitors. There is no charging by the hour around here!

6. Well Presented Electricians

No-one wants to clean up after an electrician has supposedly finished. Cleaning up is part of the job and something that every Metropolitan electrician does as a matter of course.

All of our staff at Metropolitan Electrical Contractors will arrive at your home in a recognisable uniform. No dirty t-shirts and grubby jeans. They will always be friendly and courteous. Most importantly, they’ll leave your home in the same state they found it, ensuring any mess is swept up and rubbish disposed of.
