DESIGN AND ELECTRICAL INSTALLATIONs:
We have expert knowledge and experience in providing electrical assistance for all your needs, including adding power points and new lighting. When it comes to upgrading your home’s electrical system, we have the necessary skills and creativity.
Your switchboard controls the electrical wiring in your property. It receives power from the street and distributes it through different circuits in your home. If your switchboard is outdated and doesn’t have safety switches, it can cause short circuits, inadequate power supply, and may pose a safety risk.
Although older homes possess a charming character, they may require more maintenance due to their age. In Melbourne, houses built before the 1970s may contain outdated and damaged wiring that could potentially be hazardous to your home. To avoid safety hazards, it is advisable to seek assistance from an electrician. Furthermore, rewiring would only need to be done once every generation.
LED LIGHTING UPGRADES:
Most types of lights, including halogen downlights and old pendant fittings, can be replaced with LED lights. This is because LEDs are cheaper to operate and less likely to cause a fire compared to other types of lights. We offer a selection of different styles to choose from that are suitable for any situation.

COMMERCIAL, INDUSTRIAL DESIGN & FITOUTS
We specialise in designing and installing lighting and power solutions for all types of commercial spaces, including shop fit outs, warehouses, and factories. Our team of commercial electricians offer flexible scheduling, including out-of-hours and weekend work, to accommodate even the most challenging conditions.

Our team provides reliable and professional services, ensuring that all your electrical needs are taken care of while you focus on your job.
TestING & tagGING
We offer a testing and tagging service that helps you ensure your commercial property complies with Victorian OH&S regulations. By having your workplace tested and tagged, you show that you’re taking steps to maintain a safe workplace. This can prevent unexpected electrical injuries to employees and visitors.
Emergency & EXIT lighting
Exit and emergency lighting are crucial in guiding people out of a building safely during emergencies. Commercial building safety regulations mandate testing of these lights every 6 months. We provide various services, including logbook tests, repairs, maintenance, and new installations when necessary.

We offer a complete range of service and maintenance options for both residential and commercial properties, which includes a 24/7 emergency service. Whenever you need us, we have a professional emergency electrician available with just a phone call.
Frequently Asked Questions
Are you licensed and insured?
Absolutely, our team of trusted electricians are fully licensed and insured. We have public liability insurance, and if required, just let our team know that you’d like to view our documentation.
Our team are NECA (National Electrical Contractors Association) accredited, which means they are highly trained to offer safe and reliable services at the highest standard. They also keep themselves up-to-date with the latest information to remain at the forefront of their trade.
We are also very stringent with our hiring guidelines, which means that each of our attending plumbers will be highly skilled and experienced, background checked and make great service a priority.
Can you issue a certificate of compliance?
We sure can, and do. Our qualified electricians will provide you with a Certificate of Compliance after completing relevant electrical work. This document is issued by Energy Safe Victoria and confirms that the work was done according to safety standards, ensuring your safety. You can keep the certificate for your own records.
Is it safe to attempt a DIY repair or should I call an electrician?
That really depends on one factor. Are you a licensed electrician?! If not, the answer is a simple, ‘No, don’t do it’. As tempting as it may be to save money, or use skills learnt elsewhere, electrical work carries huge risks and it’s just not worth attempting on your own. Your best bet is to find a team of electrical professionals who are affordable, reliable and have the skills, qualifications and experience to solve your electrical problems. If budget is a constraint, talk to us about what options we can provide. We offer highly competitive rates, efficient service timeframes and most of all, you can rely on the safety of our work.
Do you offer both residential and commercial electrical work?
We certainly do. We can help with electrical work for your home or business, whether it’s a new design and installation, during renovations or for regular servicing or maintenance. We work with clients right across the Bayside region of Melbourne, and Melbourne CBD, for everything from minor residential work through to large industrial installations.
Can you help install or repair internet and phone cables?
We certainly can help with this. Our electrical contractors have the necessary certifications and licenses to perform this type of electrical service, which are issued by the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA). This type of licence shows that our team have completed the correct training to work with data cables, and that work will be carried out under the Australian Standards framework for wiring.
Can you assist with smoke alarm compliance?
We sure can. It’s imperative to ensure that your smoke alarms are serviced and maintained on a regular basis. We are able to install new systems, including smoke alarms, carbon monoxide detection systems and other systems to detect smoke and fire, but generally, we are called out to maintain existing systems. We can help you service your home system, and also provide services to realties and body corporates.
How often should I schedule an electrical safety inspection?
This really depends on the purpose of your safety inspection, as there are different guidelines for workplaces and homes. For some workplaces, testing will be required more than once a year. In your home, it’s worth doing an inspection every 5 years or so, but this can vary greatly depending on the age and history of the building. We can provide a detailed check on residential properties or commercial electrical devices, cables, appliances, switchboards and wiring, to ensure your safety and also compliance. If you have a specific electrical problem, we can have a team member attend and perform testing and electrical fault finding, to discern the nature of the issue or fault and the best solution.
Can you assist with advice in reducing my energy usage?
We certainly can. Our fully licenced electricians and electrical contractors can give you advice and recommend solutions to increase your energy efficiency. There are many ways that most households can decrease their energy consumption. Common suggestions include installing energy-efficient lighting, using energy-efficient appliances and utilising timers and smart technology for lighting and other switches.
In some cases, large changes will be required for long-term benefits, but often it’s a number of small changes that.
You’ll be pleasantly surprised to know that exceeding your expectations of reliability, professionalism and creativity is part of our service.
