Transparent Pricing

two green credit cards

Simple & transparent pricing


We know that when it comes to being billed by a tradesperson, nobody likes surprises – which is why we operate a completely transparent pricing policy.

Standard non-emergency electrical work is charged at a flat rate of £30/hour/member of staff plus the cost of materials with a minimum charge of £60. The number of electricians that we send out depends on the complexity of the job but rest assured that we will always strive for the maximum efficiency and therefore lowest cost to you. For example, if two electricians could complete a job in less than half the time that one could, we will send two as the overall cost would be less.

Emergency electrical callouts have an initial callout fee of £75 which includes the first hour’s labour. Normally we can diagnose and secure the fault within the first hour. If follow-up work is required once safety has been restored we can continue at the rate of £60/hour in the same callout, or you can book us to return as a non-emergency at our regular rate.
