Getting the most from your Melbourne electrician

If you have called a Melbourne electrician chances are you have an electrical problem that needs fixing. You could be building or renovating and probably co-ordinating multiple tradespeople and tight deadlines. Unnecessary delays or miscommunications can mean more stress and expense for everyone so it is a good idea to do what you can to help minimise them.

Here are a few ways you can help make your electrician’s visit go as smoothly and efficiently as possible and make sure everyone gets the outcome they are looking for.

When you book a Melbourne electrician

Whether you are booking online or over the phone make sure you have outlined the problem or job clearly so that your electrician can give you a fair estimation of time and costs. This information will also make sure they bring any electrical repair equipment necessary.

Check that the Melbourne electrician you choose has the right credentials and certifications. Don’t be afraid to ask for proof of their credentials and that they are experienced in the work that you need doing. Testimonials and references are a good indication of the person’s reliability and level of skill.

Before your electrician arrives

If you are not going to be home when the electrician visits, ensure that you have arranged access to your property. Make sure you have cleared some space around where the electrician will be working and that you have moved any furniture or breakables out of the way so they have access to the areas they need. Make sure children and pets are kept well out of the way.

While the electrician is working

If you are home, it’s a good idea to understand what your electrician is doing and any implications this might have for other areas of your Melbourne home or future electrical work. Feel free to ask questions, particularly around any safety issues or guidelines.

If your electrician is fixing a specific problem, find out what the cause was (if you didn’t already know) and how you can avoid it happening again in the future. Before they leave make sure you check the work and find out how to follow up if you have any unexpected issues after your electrician leaves.
