Electricians In Wellington: Who, What And Where To Find Them

Find an Electrician in Wellington, complete with cost estimates and jobs they can undertake

Our beautiful capital city is getting more and more lively every year. The arts scene is jumping and we’re lucky to have some fantastic places to dine like the Boat Café and the Spruce Goose. The windiest city in the world gets its fair share of building wear and tear over the years too. Earthquakes and tremors can even dislodge old systems that previously worked perfectly.

If you’re looking to find yourself an electrician from Aro Valley to Wadestown then check out this guide to finding yourself a sparkie to get your job done.

Electricians know:

  • How to fix old wiring
  • How to install new wiring
  • How to install electrical systems
  • How to do electrical repairs
  • How to upgrade old electrical systems
  • How to rewire underground power
  • How to install a light switch
  • What to do with your fuse box
  • Anything else involved with electricity that you shouldn’t touch yourself!

What qualifications should an electrician hold?

A qualified electrician will be registered and licenced with the Electrical Workers Registration Board. They will have completed their trade certificate. Be careful to check these qualifications as going with an unqualified electrician can be extremely dangerous for you and your family. If the electrician is an apprentice, ensure they have a fully qualified electrician supervising.

Take the time to look up their reputation online and call references if you’d like further peace of mind.

How long will the job take?

This depends fully on your situation. For something as simple as installing a new power outlet in a new house, electrical experts could be finished within an hour. If your wiring is old, it may take longer. Rewiring all your shoddy electrical work for your light fittings from the 1970s could take significantly longer.

How much will it cost?

Depending on whether your tradesperson is an apprentice or someone who has been working in the field for 20 years will help in determining cost. You will be able to find apprentices from around $25/hour for a small job, up to $100+/hour for some electricians. The average rate should be around $75/hour. This does not include materials, and there may also be a call out fee.

Ensure you get a proper quote from the electrical technician before you go ahead with the project. This should generally be at no cost to yourself and obligation free, meaning you don’t have to sign with them. Have them come out to inspect your house before getting a proper quote.

How do I find one?

Post your job on Builderscrack and wait for the sparkies to come to you! In your advertisement make sure that you’re succinct and include the suburb you live in, as well at the general state of your current wiring and a picture if it is appropriate. Include as much information in the posting as you can, as it will make it easier for the electrician to know in advance what is required of the job.

When you’re finished, sit back and wait for experienced sparkies to contact you!

It’s the smarter way to find your next trade professional
