Electrical Adventures in Melbourne

Electrical Adventures in Melbourne

Have you ever wondered what a Melbourne electrician does on a daily basis? Recently one of our Metropolitan electricians attended a property that needed a lighting repair service. What happened next? Well, you’ll have to read on to find out.

After a quick Google search for ‘electrician Melbourne‘, Jovan called Metropolitan Electrical Contractors because his light switches had stopped working. The call centre advised him that they could have an electrician to his door within the hour which he was pleased with.

Upon arrival one hour later, the electrician arrived and inspected the suspect light switch. Shortly after, he confirmed that the light switch had tripped the wall outlet and needed replacing.

Luckily for Jovan, Metropolitan electricians attend all jobs with a fully stocked van so the job was able to be completed on the spot. And just like that, one hour later, the wall outlet had been replaced and the customer had illumination once again.

A light switch is inexpensive and has small parts entirely contained inside a plastic casing, so if the switch is bad the best option is to replace it. All electrical work must be completed by a licensed electrician so, in this instance, Jovan did the correct thing.

Upon completion of the job, Jovan opted to pay for the service using one of our interest free providers. He asked if we had LatitudePay and our electrician explained that we do not, however, he explained to Jovan that we do in fact offer Zip Pay. This service allows our customers to pay off the work in manageable instalments with no interest, ever!

Jovan chose to pay off the work in fortnightly instalments because it was convenient. He also decided to leave a review on Product Review for the service of the electrician. And of course, this was a five-star review with a glowing endorsement.
