Typical Electrician Charging Rates

Typically, electricians charge a basic hourly rate, which can vary depending on a few factors: DIFFICULTY—a more difficult or complicated job can cost more if it takes more time, materials and labour to complete, SPECIALITY—some jobs must be done by specialists who typically charge a higher rate, and CONDITION—if your electrical circuitry is very old, hourly electrician labour rates + the cost of replacement parts may be higher than normal.

Typical hourly rates for an electrician in the UK range from around £60 - £100. However, this can vary from geographical area to area. For example, hourly labour rates for electricians in London are typically at the upper end of that range. Some jobs can also be more expensive depending on the factors mentioned above.

Emergency call-outs may also cost extra. Typically, emergency electricians are available to take on jobs outside their usual working hours and therefore often charge more per hour than other electricians. On average, for non-emergency situations, you can expect to pay an electrician at least £400 for a full day’s work. Because costs can vary, it’s important to make sure that you discuss hourly rates and any additional charges before you hire an electrician. This way, you’ll know exactly what to expect with no nasty surprises when the bill comes in.

Good electricians in London won’t mind if you call to ask about hourly rates and get a free quote before you commission the work. Just make sure you choose a company that vets its electricians and guarantees that they are well-trained, appropriately certified and experienced in the work you want doing. There are some situations where a fee that’s already been agreed on can change once work begins—if the job is larger than first thought, for instance. Ask your electrician for a breakdown of costs and is transparent on what caused any extra charges.

At some point in your life, you will probably move into a new home, get settled, and/ or want to add new electrical equipment to your house. Whatever the scenario, you need to make sure that your electrical systems are in order and can accommodate any new additions to your home.

Things Your Electrician Wants You To Know

Electrical matters simply don’t fall within the expertise of most people. This is why getting a professional lineman in London for this kind of job is very important. These are things an electrician will advise you about:

  • Watch out for warning signs like sparking sockets or flickering lights.
  • Learn what the ground fault circuit interrupt (GFCI) means.
  • Stay clear from overhead power lines.
  • Never settle for DIY when a professional can do a better job.
  • Be extremely careful when checking your electrical systems.
  • Low voltage doesn’t mean there’s no risk or danger.
  • Take note of “vampire” devices or those that draw power continuously.
