Electrician prices..

Recommended Posts

Hi, I am new to Sheffield. I moved here 3 weeks ago from Durham. Im a domestic electrician.

What I am wanting to do is adjust my prices for jobs, however Im not sure what other electricians charge for jobs such as changing lights, a new socket, outdoor lights, DB upgrade etc etc( I am aware that prices can vary massively).

 

So Im simply asking I you have had work done recently or are a sparkie yourself ( Hi! :) ) could you tell me what you paid or charged and I could then adjust my prices accordingly and hopefully get my little business going here and enjoy Sheffield life. Many thanks, Nic.

 

I hope this message doesnt break any of the rules and that it is the right place.

Hi

 

I just had a large (1 metre diameter) outside light fitted. The job involved fixing a large bracket, wiring the sodium light into the existing wiring, providing and fixing a timer and providing a sodium bulb. The job took about 3 hours and I was charged £75 labour charge (plus £5 for cable, £15 for timer and £8 for bulb), so £25 an hour.

 

This guy http://dsaelectricalinstallations.co.uk/ probably wasn't the cheapest but he came and reviewed the job on the day I called, he provided me with a detailed quote within hours and was able to complete the job the following day which is why I chose him, that together with the good reviews online.

 

Hope this helps you to gauge what you could reasonably charge in Sheffield

Hi there. The price I charge for a fusebox upgrade is around 250 however there can be additional charges if the mains ( water and gas) needs earthing.

It is always best to have a test done just to be sure the system will take the rcds.

So, there you go, no more than £350 all in, certificates and notifications also.

Hope this is of help. Many thanks. Nic.
