Are you in need of a residential or commercial electrical repair in San Diego?

Electrical repairs can be very expensive especially if you don’t use the services of a company that works towards complete customer satisfaction, honest and upfront pricing, who is willing to accommodate your busy schedule, willing to provide affordable payment plans, and is competent to perform the work in an efficient and cost effective manner.

Often times we hear from our new customers that their past electrician completely blind sided them with a huge bill for their services only to find out later they could have received better service, other possible less expensive options, and an overall better experience.  There are several ways to get the most value from your hard earned money.  We provide the following as a guide to help you save money on your next electrical call in hopes that it will save you money and headaches.

  1. Compare hourly rates of several companies.  We have seen electricians charge customers exorbitant amounts of money for simple repairs.  Be careful and be leary of electricians who won’t let you know their labor rates.  Ask yourself why would they not want to discuss their labor rate if they have the best prices in town?
  2. Find out how much they charge for materials.  We often times pick up new customers and they share the information of the quotes they received for an electrical upgrade and there have been times we have seen other electrical companies charge three times what the item actually costs anyone who wanted to purchase the same exact item.  Now the contractor would probably get a discount of 25% of the item because they purchase in volume compared to a homeowner or business owner who isn’t purchasing electrical materials on a weekly basis.  This is a considerable amount of money and
  3. Check to make sure they are licensed, bonded, insured, and carry workers compensation insurance.  We had a customer who used the services of an unlicensed individual and that individual claimed they was hurt on their property.  Guess who was held responsible for the medical expenses?   Unfortunately this is a true story and we urge everyone that you really need to be careful when you hire someone to perform work on your property.
  4. Keep in mind that you want to make sure the electrician you hire is a journeyman electrician and has all the experience, electrical knowledge, tools, and materials to get the job done.   Ask him to see his journeyman card and check to make sure his license is active and in good standing. You can always find cheaper less experienced electricians or handymans out there but they may cost you more in the long run due to them not fixing a problem correctly and you having to hire a professional to get the job fixed the right way. We cannot begin to tell you how many times we have witnessed this happen over and over again by some of new customers. We often times get phone calls from frantic customers saying they had the handyman do an electrical repair and now he won’t answer the customers calls and the problem isn’t fixed.
