Finding a certified electrician to do any type of electrical works on your property is easy, so long as you know where to look and, more importantly, what certificate(s) your electrical contractor needs to have. The quickest way to find local Hervey Bay electricians is HBREG!

Whether you need someone to connect your appliances to power sources or repair electrical motors and equipment, our platform makes it easier to find an electrician who can do the job.

It may be tempting to do certain electrical jobs yourself, but most do require a qualified electrical contractor because to do your own electrical work is against the law. An electrician will make sure that all wires, cables, and sockets are secure to use to minimise risks and avoid potential safety hazards.

HBREG’s Guide to Hiring Local Electricians

While any homeowner should be able to replace a burned-out light bulb and reset their fuses or breakers, in most situations you will need to call a professional electrician, after all, it’s the law. See QLD Electrical Contractor Licence requirements.  

Samples of the types of jobs that require a licensed electrician are:

  • Installing new or replacing electrical fixtures such as lighting
  • Adding power points, safety switches, and/or outlets to the electrical system
  • Changing out a breaker box, hot water, smoke alarms, air conditioning installations, etc 
  • Rewiring & electrical repairs
  • Home electrical inspections and assessments

Tips About Finding the Best Electrician for Your Needs

When it comes to hiring an electrician, there are a few factors to think about. Electrical problems are a common cause of house fires, therefore it’s critical to hire the right tradesperson for the job. Here are some pointers to get you started:

  1. Is this the Right Person to Contact?
    Electrical workers are divided into two categories: those who do repairs and those who specialise in new construction electrical installation work. Not forgetting, there are also residential and commercial electricians. Make sure you’re clear about the project so the electrician you’re speaking with understands what you’re looking for.
  2. Aim to Collect at Least Three Electrical Contracting Quotes.
    You should only need three to five quotes. Not only should you compare prices, but you should also compare their experience. Don’t just rely on price as cheaper or more expensive, does not necessarily mean better.
  3. Speak with Previous Clients.
    Request a list of references and be sure to follow up to ascertain how professionally the task was completed, how easy it was to communicate with them, and whether they would hire them again. Read reviews and feedback.
  4. Talk to Electrical Companies & Retailers.
    Electrical fixture and appliance retailers work with electricians on an almost daily basis. They might be able to recommend some good ones.
  5. Prioritize Experience over Pricing.
    If you’re unsure, go with the more experienced electrician over the less expensive one. Electrical issues are one of the most common causes of house fires, and it’s not worth the risk.
