The hourly rate is not the only consideration or ultimate cost.

Below are some reasons why you should only ever use a Registered Electrician.

#1 - Qualified

Registered Electricians must complete many assessments and exams before they become qualified as an electrician. They must fully understand the New Zealand electrical standards and regulations which ensure that the work they carry out in your home complies with these standards and is safe.

#2 - Safety

DIY or shoddy electrical work can result in fires, shocks or damage to your property. By choosing a registered electrician you can prevent these accidents, as they are licensed with the Electrical Workers Registration Board (EWRB) which ensures the “competence of electrical workers to ensure the safety of New Zealanders”. Essentially, it is much safer to choose a Registered Electrician!

#3 - Insurance

A Registered Electrician wil provide you with an electrical safety certificate or certificate of compliance for certain work, which may become useful if you ever choose to sell your home or need to make an insurance claim.

#4 - Right Tools for the Job

You can be confident that Registered Electricians have all the tools they need to complete the job to a high standard.

#5 - Workmanship Guarantee

Master Electricians have a workmanship guarantee which lasts from 12 months of the date the work was completed, so you can have peace of mind knowing that the electrician stands by their work.
