Electrician Recommendation - Urgent!

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I need to source for a reliable electrician. The quote i got from the electrician recommended by my contractor don't seem to be very good.

I will try and talk to him and see if he can give me a better price, but at the same time, i hope to contact a few other electricians for quote as well.

I need an electrician by early next week. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

Isn't the quote Supply Labour and Material?

Single Socket : $45

Double Socket : $55

This is the pricing i got from my reno contractor, other items differ not alot.

But require for next week, will be kinda rush.

Everyone rushing for xmas/new yr/cny. Alot of contractors will be tied till then i believe.

Hi ben263 ,

Thanks for your reply.

#8 - I did not do re-wiring for the whole house, but want to change the socket cover. He tell us to buy and he will change for us. My hubby said its expensive as its not very difficult to change. Think he want to do it himself. :dunno:

Hi Ding Dong,

The electrician will supply all except for #8.
