Top Electrical related questions

Do I need a specialist licence for electrical services?

For certain types of tasks, you may need to enquire as to what specialist licenses may be required to undertake your task as this can vary. Please make sure that you confirm that a Tasker has the relevant electrician licence and insurance before accepting an offer.

How do I find an emergency electrician near me?

If you need to find an emergency electrician, you can do this easily with Airtasker. Click “Post a task” and fill out all the details in the form. Don’t forget to indicate your location and the date you need the job done. This makes it faster to find local electricians who are available for the job. Once you receive the quotes, all you need to do is pick an offer that suits your needs and budget.

What questions should I ask an electrician?

Before confirming an offer or starting on the project, make sure to ask your electrician about the following: their licence, experience, specialisations, and their references or similar jobs handled. Ask them if only one person or team will handle your project. You can also enquire about insurance, though Airtasker already covers all electricians hired via the platform.

How do I find an auto electrician near me?

If your car needs electrical repair ASAP, Airtasker can connect you with auto electrician experts in your area. They can diagnose your car’s problems, repair your car alarm system, replace a glow plug or alternator, or even repair your trailer or boat! To begin looking for an auto electrician near you, visit our Auto Electrician page or post a task.

What does an electrician service include?

Our electrician service includes any and all electrical services that you may require of licensed journeyman electricians, as well as master electricians. They can install, maintain, repair, and even replace your electrical fixtures, wiring, and lighting. If your project includes planning or designing an electrical system, you may need to hire a master electrician. If you’re hiring an electrician via Airtasker for the first time, here’s what your local expert can cover:
 
Installing or repairing electrical, wiring, and lighting fixtures

An electrician can install and repair electrical fixtures in your home or business. This includes surge protectors, breaker boxes, alarm systems, HVAC system, power outlets, and the wiring throughout your home. If you observe anything unusual with your ceiling fixtures, or if your appliances give you mild shocks, it may be time to ask an electrician about maintenance or repair.
 
Electrical maintenance experts near you

Did you know that faulty wiring is one of the leading causes of home fires? Getting your wiring checked regularly can help reduce the risk of fire, power interruptions, accidents, and other electrical-related problems. When you hire a local electrician via Airtasker, you can have them assess the protective covering of your wires, the state of your wall outlets, and other related fixtures in your home.
 
They can also test and troubleshoot electrical systems to make them work better. Remember that your electrician can serve you better if you tell them about any issues such as breaker switches tripping or exposed wires.
 
Emergency electrician service

Airtasker makes it possible to hire a trusted electrician quickly. If you suspect that your home may be in danger of electrical fire, it is best to contact a nearby electrician ASAP. Since Airtasker connects you with nearby experts, it will be easier for you to find an available electrician, and it will be easier for the electrician to access your location.  
 
Master electrician planning and designing

It’s important to note that the difference between a “regular” or journeyman electrician and a master electrician is that the latter can handle big picture tasks such as examining blueprints and designing plans. They may also have special licenses and the power to issue permits—things that a journeyman electrician does not have. If you are in the process of designing a home or workplace, you can find a master electrician near you via Airtasker.
