What do electrician services include?

Our local electrical contractors can handle all electrical projects, be it for residential, commercial, and industrial properties. If you are building from scratch, they can help construct an efficient electrical framework for you. They can also establish new electrical wirings, and test the electrical flow for your safety. 

As for existing properties, electricians can routinely maintain, repair and upgrade your power systems whenever needed. They can also handle electrical equipment and machinery for factories and manufacturing plants. Here are the better overview of our electrical services:

Domestic electrician

Electrical safety is paramount when it comes to your home, and that's when residential electricians play a vital role. They can help make sure that all electrical components, including wires and cables, are in good condition to avoid any incidents that could put you and your family at risk.

Domestic electricians can establish power points and switches to support your household appliances. They can also assist with installing various electrical appliances such as electric heaters and showers, in case you're looking to upgrade or planning a renovation.

Commercial electrician

Not to be confused with domestic electricians, commercial electricians are mostly involved in large-scale projects for buildings and various businesses like restaurants, hotels, and corporate offices. Depending on your establishment's requirements, they can fix lighting, heating, and cooling systems or install fire alarms and other security equipment if needed.

Industrial electrician

For tasks that involve higher voltage systems and more complex machinery, it's better to connect with a licensed industrial electrician. Their services include electrical construction and maintenance for industries like factories and plants. They don't just install lights and electrical heaters. Most of the time, they also deal with different types of manufacturing equipment, including hydraulic and pneumatic systems. Industrial electricians can also troubleshoot problems and repair them as they see fit. They can even create tailored maintenance programs for your electrical motors and generators.

Emergency electrician

The moment you sense something odd with your sockets and switches, or notice a burning smell, spark, or flickering of lights, get in touch with a local electrician immediately. With Airtasker, finding available emergency electricians in your area is fast and easy! You won't even have to worry about not having any tools on hand–most electricians are already equipped with their own professional tool kits, which they can bring with them for any service that you may need.

Assemble electric height adjustable standing desk

$80

Palm Cove QLD, Australia

8th Sep 2021

We require an experienced handyman/furniture installer to install 1x electric height adjustable desk for one of our customers in Palm Cove, QLD 4879. Installation to be Thursday 9th September or Monday 13 September. Each desk consists of a table top (1800x750x25mm, 25kg) a flat packed frame box (1040x350x350mm, 30kg), a cable tray (5kg) and a monitor arm with laptop attachment (5kg). All hardware is provided in the boxes. Assembly is very easy using allen key bolts and self tapping wood screws to secure the frame to the tabletop. The tabletop does not have pre-drilled holes, so you will need to use a cordless electric screw driver to secure the self tapping screws into the tabletop. All wiring is plug and play. The monitor arm and laptop mount uses a clamp which is positioned at the rear of the desk (no drilling is required). Comprehensive instructions and standard operating procedures will be provided. An experienced installer should complete this job in under 60 minutes. The flat packed goods will have already been delivered to the residence. All that is required is moving the flat packed goods from ground floor to the top floor (so having a trolley would make your life easier) and then installing everything on site. Ongoing works is available each week for the right candidate. Please provide your most competitive rate for consideration
