Pricing - How We Calculate Costs

We often get asked about pricing.
Read below how we price jobs, what we consider our strengths, plus important points to consider. 

Our Pricing

At PD Electrical we take pride in being competitive and value for money. We realise there are multiple providers out there, at varying price levels. Below are some points to consider when comparing us to the rest.

We employ a team of full-time, fully-qualified electricians. While “one-man-band” self-employed electricians may be cheaper on price, it can be hard for them to  effectively deliver the full range of services that customers rightly expect.

A good system must be in place to ensure regular and timely follow-ups take place. This relies on a well-maintained, secure database of customers. Paperwork can fall behind due to time pressure – this may mean your certificates may not get delivered to you or worse the Part P registration may get missed entirely. As a customer you may not even be aware of this until the day you need to locate these vital documents (e.g. house sale).

Self-employed electricians often find it difficult to manage their schedules with unexpected issues created delays and disappointed customers who wait around.

Larger companies than ours are often have similar issues when it comes to the delivery of service, one minute Sarah is dealing with your custom then the next time its jane who is none the wiser. All the while you are paying more for their overhead costs.

We are up front about our prices and our prices are fixed for your peace of mind, we firmly believe that we have the right systems and the right pricing to deliver all the things that should be expected within a reasonable time frame, without any compromises.

Thank you for considering P D Electrical. We look forward to the opportunity to serve you and demonstrate the value and quality that our team brings to every project.

Our Work

Our Strengths

Our Promise to you

Finally, Electrical Services that give you work completed on time and on budget.

  • Maybe you have tried to get some electrical work done, only to be left with unreliable, shoddy results? Perhaps you hired an electrician only to find that they failed to deliver on their promises, leaving you with faulty installations or recurring issues.
  • You may have been quoted a price for a job, only for the cost to spiral out of control, becoming a financial headache.
  • Or maybe you’ve even experienced electricians who don’t show up on time or when promised, leaving you to rearrange your busy schedule and adding unnecessary stress to your life.

And look, I get it, it’s not fair.

The truth is, you’re not alone. It seems most homeowners are becoming victims of these issues when trying to get your electrical work done right the first time and on budget. That feeling of frustration, helplessness, and financial stress – a terrible place to be in.

Here’s what most don’t realise – bad electrical work isn’t just a nuisance, it is downright dangerous.

Faulty wiring and substandard installations can lead to fires, electrical shocks, and other hazardous situations. And now with the possibility of engaging unqualified or uncertified electricians, the risks become even greater.

It seems most are left in a state of constant worry and uncertainty, wondering when the next problem will arise or if their home is even safe. Which just goes to show – you would be wise to do something different to get your electrical work done right the first time and on budget to stop the pain and frustration.

A new way that means you can avoid unreliable work, overpriced quotes, and tardy electricians.

Ultimately and possibly for the first time, a way to get your electrical work done right so that you can enjoy peace of mind, financial transparency, and a smooth, hassle-free experience.

So if you are a homeowner and you are tired of unreliable work and overpriced quotes, and other common problems, then I urge you to give me a call so that we can talk about you finally getting “Work Done Right” with our new way to deliver Electrical Services.

The new way to get your electrical work done right the first time and on budget – our process is called W.I.R.E.

  • W: Walkthrough – we will start by walking through your home to understand your needs. This helps us tailor our service to your home and lifestyle.
  • I: Inspection – our team will conduct a thorough inspection of your electrical systems. This step ensures your safety and the longevity of our work.
  • R: Repair/Replacement – our electricians, fully trained and certified, will perform all necessary repairs or replacements using top-quality parts.
  • E: Evaluation – lastly we provide a full safety check and evaluation, giving you the peace of mind of knowing that your electrical work is done right.

I needed a tiny job doing fast - ceiling light. P D Electrical booked a great appointment time with me, turned up on time and carried the work out perfectly. Very happy with all the work they've done for me so far. 2 jobs and counting! See you all soon!

My previous experiences of getting the service I needed had been difficult and took a long time to get responses. Paul responded immediately and got the work done in record time. It was a refreshing change to deal with such a friendly and efficient company. I was really happy with the end result and have no hesitation in recommending PD Electrical to anyone needing a professional service that is fast and efficient.

Having been let down by other electricians who either didn't respond or were apparently too busy, I was very impressed with Paul's responses to requests for quotes. He isn't cheap but you definitely get what you pay for. He's installed a cooker hood, a replacement bathroom extractor fan and redirected its exit to a more efficient location, separated a light and extractor fan in an en suite, and installed a replacement electric doorbell. He leaves everything clean and tidy. I'm really pleased with Paul's standard of work.

I chose PD Electrical purely on the strength of their Google Reviews. I have had various electricians over the years, but this time wanted someone with stellar reputation. Paul called round for a chat and to assess the requirement. It was only a few switches and lights, but he took time to document what was needed and also ask a few other questions to help him understand the setup in my home. I then received a quote for the work, which was reasonable and accompanied by a very thorough, helpful guides to how PD work and key things I should know. Paul had also left a book of client testimonials which was a very nice touch, something I had never seen before.Charlie from PD arrived on time to carry out the work, he was polite, cheerful and a pleasure to have in the house (this has not always been the case with previous contractors!) Everything was completed to agreed spec and care was taken throughout not to leave any mess or cause disruption. I chatted with Paul about our fusebox and some other requirements and he gave me considered, helpful responses which encouraged me to return in future for additional works.My day job involves encouraging my clients to "go the extra mile" for their customers and it was great to see this in action with Paul. Highly recommended, well done!

Paul came out promptly to quote and returned within the next few days to fit several challenging light fittings, nothing was too much trouble. He was on time, helpful and polite, and got the job done efficiently. Would highly recommend.
