Frequently Asked Questions

Why not use an electrician per hour on a time and material basis? Why should I get a written estimate before any work is completed?

You should always know how much a job would cost in advance; you should never have to pay for slow or inefficient service, travel time or run around time to pick up parts for your job. But that’s what tends to happen when you pay per hour on a time and material billing basis instead of by the job. No two-service electricians are alike some are slow workers and some are fast workers, some are less experienced and some more. Hopefully they will send you that fast experienced guy but it’s not in the company’s best interest to do this, as the company will make less money by sending you a fast experienced technician. Your service call ends up being a nervous clock watching experience where you hope for the best at billing time. That’s not fair to you.
Because we charge by the job it’s in our best interest to work as efficiently as possible, we stock our trucks with every commonly used part and tool imaginable, and train our technicians to do the job efficiently and correctly the first time. And ultimately you can relax while the job is being completed because you know up front how much the job will cost with no surprises at billing time.
