How to Find a Great Brisbane Electrician

Posted on 3rd May 2018 by Kristine Dawson

Finding a decent Brisbane Electrician can be a tricky task, unless you know what to look for.

Searching for a Brisbane Electrician or Electrician near me are two of the most popular searches on google. However these searches do not always bring up the Electrician best suited to your needs. You might get commercial electricians or large electrical companies, when all you are after is a light bulb change. Often top of the google rankings is yellow pages, true local and a variety of other free listing sites that are difficult to manage. Everyone has a story about a dodgy tradesperson, so choosing the right one can be nerve racking. 

So how do you choose a quality Brisbane Electrician or tradesperson for your job? 

 

1. Check out their online rankings.

What have other people said about them on google or facebook? It is important to read the good and the bad reviews. A testimonial from someone else is one of the best ways to choose a tradie.

2. Make sure they are a licensed contractor. 

Ask for their license details and look them up online. You could also ask for their insurance documents. If they seem reluctant to give you this information, give them the flick. 

3. Ask for a formal quote. 

If you don’t like surprises and don’t want the job to blow out, get it in writing. We can quote everything from a basic powerpoint to whole house wiring upgrade. Just ask. 

4. Get 3 quotes! 

Yes thats’ right, if you are spending hundreds of dollars on some ceiling fans or thousands of dollars on a renovation every dollar counts. 

5. Choose the right trade for your job

If your job is a Residential Electrical job make sure you choose a company that specialises in Residential Electrical. Ask the company how many of these jobs have the done before. If you are looking for an electrical company to provide ongoing commercial maintenance make sure they specialise in this area. 

6. When you find a great trade – look after them.

Be clear about what you are after and pay on time and always give a great testimonial. 

 

Good luck!
