Sure, read through the following 3 categories to find how we can best determine the price your job!
Quotations: We are happy to provide a fixed price quotation to you free of charge, however if a job is likely to cost less than $500 it is often not cost effective to drive to site, inspect the job and then quote. If you are able to supply photos we can often accurately asses the job and give an estimate of the work involved.
Tip: We can quote work when we know the quantities, time and location. eg. ‘Next week, can you replace the two light fittings in my house at Devonport with pendant fittings?’ If we know exactly what work you want done, where and when then we can calculate the costs in a quotation.
Estimates: If there are variables in the job that we don’t know about, we can provide a free estimate as a starting point. eg. ‘We’re renovating our kitchen but don’t have the final layout yet. How much will it cost for the electrical work?’ An estimate would show the estimated costs as far as we can predict, but depending on the final location of your oven for instance, the final cost may vary.
Troubleshooting/Fault finding: Fault finding before the quotation or estimate can be constructed is not free. eg “The power to my garage has stopped working but all of the fuses are ok”. Since we don’t know what the problem is we must first have an electrician find the fault before we can give you a quotation. This can take anywhere between 1 and several hours depending on the site or the nature of the fault. Our standard labour charges apply in this case.
