There is no standard pricing of electrical services among electricians. Rates vary depending on regions, complexity of given task, labor costs, etc. That's why it's important to obtain at least three electrical estimates. Acquiring multiple estimates from different electricians in your area is the best way to distinguish reasonable rates from overpriced services.
An electrician’s job begins with a blue print of the area that needs to be wired or refurbished. He/she will then study this blue print and list out all the work that is needed to be done. A professional electrician will then compare the blue print to the physical area and underline any breakages that need to be done to walls etc. in order to run the wiring efficiently.
A comprehensive electrical contractor will install, test, repair if necessary and even offer to give you a maintenance package. They will also follow local and national building codes when they install wiring and circuit breakers. Electrician labor rates will therefore depend on the amount of work to be done, broken down into the areas mentioned above.

Provide electricians a comprehensive list of all the work you want done and the time line you want it done in and ask each contractor to forward you an estimate.

While these quotes are most often ok to work with, there are times that these quotes are not very accurate and the price seems to escalate in midstream. This leaves you hanging with a huge bill that you didn’t bargain for. Therefore, it is always a good idea to get a quote once the contractor has taken a look at the premises.
