Get the right information when choosing set price electricians
Consumers want to get value for their money whenever they pay for goods and services. Electrical work is no exception.
Choosing a set price electrician gives you the comfort of knowing exactly how much your job will cost, without any surprises at the end. But you also need to make sure that you're dealing with professionals who will deliver good quality work.
Here are 10 questions to ask any fixed price electrician and why you should ask them.
1. Is your price fixed or will there be unexpected costs?
Electrical work can be quite expensive, so knowing how much your job will cost ahead of time is an important budgeting factor for many people.
At ITA Electrical, we offer fixed price electrician services for exactly this reason. We will assess the job and discuss your needs to determine a fixed price for the job. There are no hidden costs or nasty surprises at the end.
2. Are your works covered by a warranty?
A warranty on electrical work is always very important for your piece of mind.
We offer a 2 year workmanship warranty on all our jobs. In the very unlikely event that you have a problem with any of our work, we will come back and fix it at no extra cost.
3. Is the wiring and appliances in my home safe?
Safety is extremely important in the electrical industry. Safety switches and compliant wiring are essential for ensuring safety is maintained in the home.
If you are concerned about the safety of your existing wiring and appliance, our fixed price electrician will be able to test and tag everything to make sure it's in good working order. They will also guarantee the safety of any new work you have done.
4. What is the cost of labour and cost for parts?
It's always worth knowing what you're paying for instead of just assuming that the amount is correct.
We're transparent about our prices at ITA. Our set price electricians can tell you why your job costs what it does, including a breakdown of materials and labour costs.
5. How soon are you available?
If you need a fixed price electrician soon, then this is an important question to ask.
We can usually make an appointment for the same or next day, all over Melbourne. We are also happy to make an appointment well in advance to fit in with your schedule or any other tradespeople you may have booked.
"Fixed price services give the client peace of mind that their job will be completed on budget."
6. Do you subcontract?
It's always worth knowing that the person who will be in your home is an employee of the company you choose to call.
All of our set price electricians are employed and trained by ITA, we don't subcontract jobs out to other electricians.
7. Are your electricians A-Grade Licensed?
