How Much Does Level 2 Electrician Services Cost in North Shore?

Building developments and fast-rising house constructions in the North Shore generates a significant demand for electrical services. For most electrical repairs and installation, only level 2 electricians are qualified to handle service lines.

Having a good idea about electrical services costs in North Shore will help you save up in advance and avoid overspending. Sydney North Shore Electrician will help you through electrical service and installation costs.

Before knowing the estimated prices, it is best to have ideas about how our costs are calculated. Here are the factors that affect service costs for a level 2 electrician.

Work Size

The bigger the job, the longer it takes to finish. In the North Shore, electrical services can be charged per hour or according to the size of the job. A per-hour charge can cost more since a lot of unexpected events can occur, delaying the work progress.

Job Complexity

A level 2 electrician is capable of most installations and rewiring, as well as more complex tasks that require more materials and tools to complete. Additionally, services are charged according to the complexity, since a more difficult job takes longer to finish. 

When it comes to bigger and more complex electrical jobs, a level 2 electrician has more advantages over other electricians. A Level 2 Accredited Service Provider is qualified to perform: 

  • Disconnections and Reconnections
  • Underground and Overhead Services
  • Metering Removal and Installation
  • Switchboard Upgrades
  • Emergency Repairs
  • Private Pole Installation and Replacement

To ensure a quality result that lasts, make sure your electrician is accredited for the job. Call us on (02) 8378 2828 for more information and to request a timetable so you can stay on track while we fix your electrical system.

Cost of Materials

You don’t want to rush in hardware stores, buying a handful of electrical components, only to realise you purchased the wrong size and rating. We don’t want you to take multiple trips and wait in line for new electrical components, that’s why materials are included in our repairs and replacement services.

Sydney North Shore Electrician has a vast network of electrical suppliers. We offer you the best manufacturer price of most electrical parts and products that you can choose from.

Call-Out Fees

Level 2 electricians sometimes charge you with call-out fees, which includes the first hour of work. If the job only requires a couple of minutes, like safety switch reset or lightbulb replacement, electricians may only charge you with the call-out fee, without added costs for the work. For more information regarding our call-out fees, feel free to call us, and we’ll help you with your questions.

Service Charges

Prices for electrician service vary among different fixes and installations. Considering the above factors, these are cost estimates for the most common electrical jobs.

Outlet Installation and Repair

The cost of installing new and standard power outlets ranges between $130 to $180 per outlet. This includes the cost of materials as well as labour fee. For flats, outlet installation may cost you around $75 to $180 per outlet.

The price varies depending on the type of outlet, the number of powerpoints, and access to the location.

As a pro tip, it is recommended to pair outlet installation with other quick services, especially if you are charged per hour. Adding a new power point installation or lightbulb replacement together with your outlet service will be a smart choice.

On the other hand, repairing or replacing an existing electrical outlet can cost you around $60 ‒ $150, with the price of an individual outlet ranging between $3 ‒ $20 depending on quality.

Installation of USB Powerpoints

USB powerpoints offer convenient charging and significantly reduces space in your power outlets, thus, they are becoming a trend. A single USB power point installation can cost you around $12 to $45. The call-out fee (if any), hourly/installation rate, and USB power point model cost are added to get the total price.

If you want to have more USB ports, installing a double USB power point costs around $80 to $120. Whether a single or dual USB power point, the installation will usually take 20 to 30 minutes.

Lighting and Ventilation

The cost of lighting systems installation is determined by these factors:

  • Labour cost
  • Lighting location (indoors or outdoors)
  • Your home location
  • Type of lighting
  • Quality and brand of materials
  • Other related factors

Expect the prices for different lighting systems to cost around:

  • $55 to $70 for installing new downlight systems
  • $60 to $75 for LED lighting installation
  • $70 to $95 for outdoor lighting systems

To ensure the quality of lighting installation, make sure your lights are installed by a level 2 electrician. Professional electricians also guarantee fast and efficient facilities, so you don’t have to wait for hours and hours just to get your lighting system ready for the night.

Besides, installing new ceiling fans may cost you around $60 to $80 per hour. Installation can take up to 1-2 hours and may charge you per hour. The cost of a standard ceiling fan unit can go as low as $100 to higher prices, such as $780, depending on size, motor rating, overall quality, and design.

Household Wiring System

For medium-sized households around 228 square metres, installing an electrical wiring system can cost around $3,800 ‒ $8,000. But don’t get shocked, because this depends on the following factors:

  • Household size
  • Material cost
  • Complexity of work
  • Wiring system design and layout
  • Other contingency costs

Our level 2 electricians can take up to 2 hours for every wiring connection. Installing additional components such as residual current devices (RCDs) and switchboards will also charge additional costs.

Comparatively, installing a wiring system for a newly constructed house is more expensive than rewiring an old one. For a large household, installation costs can charge up to $20,000, given that electrical points are easily accessible.

Rewiring an old electrical system means taking apart blocking walls and ceilings to take out old wires. Level 2 electricians will also repair old wire tubings as well as retrofit new RCD outlets to old outlet fittings, all depending on your choice.


You can wisely manage your savings as long as you have reasonable estimates on your service expenses. Being smart about your spendings also helps you from swindlers and unreliable electrical service providers.
