Materials

We charge an hourly rate of €50 per hour (+ tax) for work carried out during our regular working hours as stated on website. The job starts when the electrician arrives on your premises(for smaller jobs at distance from our base in Haarlem the travel will be chargeable)  The job finishes when the electrician is ready to leave the site. If a job finishes into the start of a new hour, the cost is rounded up to the nearest hour. A minimum two hour charge applies.

What is not work time:

Travel time to and from the job, breaks.

What is working time:

Unless the job is an emergency, work time starts upon the arrival of the electrician includes review and assessment of the work to be done, fault finding, advising the client, setting up of equipment, obtaining of necessary materials (search, selection, purchasing, collection and delivery), executing of the works, testing, clean up, cleaning and waste disposal, as well as recording of the job.

Parking:    

Where parking incurs fees, these will be added to the final invoice.

Estimates:

This is a non-binding ball-part figure on the anticipated labour costs and materials in accordance with the information available to the electrician at the initial review of the job. Such review may be done via email and photographs, skype, or for more complex work in person on site

The estimate may vary as compared with the final cost which may be higher or lower. In case the final costs are likely to increase considerably, you will be consulted in advance to obtain permission to continue with the works.

For estimates on new installations (sockets, lights, switches) the electrician will require the following information:

  • What is the distance from an existing power source to the new location?
  • Are the cables for the new installation to be surface mounted or chased in?
  • If chasing is required, what is the material of the wall/ceiling/floor that will need to be chased; e.g. brick, plaster board, concrete?
  • Additional details you feel may be of relevance e.g. high ceilings, obstructions/awkward access.

Estimates for complete rewiring and new distributions board installations will be carried in person on site.

It is not possible to offer an estimates for fault-finding due to the nature of the task. From fault-finding work done to date, majority of issues are resolved within the minimum 2h charge.
