I am looking for a certified electrician to replace 11 LED downlights (dimmable) in one room of my property. All lights are in a standard room ceiling approx 2-2.5M high. I can be flexible on dates/time for the work. I am looking for a FIXED cost for the below please.

1. Replacement of 11 LED downlight sockets (adjustable ones so the bulb can adjusted out on an angle) with new sockets. Socket colour white. Including any minor adjustments to the ceiling gyprock as required. I can provide measurements of existing holes.

2. Removal of existing transformers and wiring in of new LED light fittings

3. {Optional} Supply of LED light fittings including LED lights of a good brand such as Phillips. HPM. Clipsal. No Deca or Arlec. LED light fittings must be adjustable as the roof is on an angle, LEDs must be dimmable and not have flickering of the light etc.

4. Confirmation that I can use the same dimmers or a quote to replace dimmer switches that i already have.

5. All labour and fees for airtasker etc.

6. Installation time/day is completely flexible.

7. Certified electricians only.

Thank you.

Hi Richard,
I'm a local electrician in Forestville. Fully licensed and insured, available to do this for you whenever suits.
My offer is for labour and airtasker fee only. It does not include any materials.
I can supply lights at $30ea. Unfortunately no led lights will dim properly on a halogen dimmers. I can supply compatible dimmers for $50ea.

I would do. I can't get your address without you accepting an offer though.
Ok. On that basis I'll accept. The offer for labour can still stand for the 11 lights. You can quote me for the parts, Thanks.
Sounds good. It'll save you 15% on materials anyway.
Hi Richard, are your current lights LED or halogen,? it's possible the dimmers will work but without knowing what type of dimmer is installed currently it's not possible to confirm they would work.
Hallogen today. Noted I may need new dimmers. Thanks.
Hi richard,
Are all lights being switched together? Also can you please provide the existing cut-out dimensions.
Thanks, Adam.
Might not be able to use the same dimmer. When are you available ?
