Out of interest, how much have SE1ers paid or would expect to pay hourly for an electrician???

Haven't used one locally, but maybe 30 an hour. If he (or she) is working directly for you rather than being sourced through their employer, less. From what I know, electricians make about 25-30K a year, which may help you spec an hourly rate.

You're saying more or less...?

I have seen 80 per hour and 60 and hour (for the 1st 2 hours) - so 30 an hour is very cheap!

It would be interesting to see how much of that actually goes to the electrician. Where my parents live, qualified electricians are paid (I think) 10.21 an hour, though obviously their charge-out rate is significantly higher.

All of the 60 quoted goes to the electrician

London prices, eh?

We had electricians come in to fit a new heating system, and they charged just under 1500 for five days work. There were two of them most of the time, but not all the work needed a qualified electrician, so 60/hour sounds about right for proper skilled eletrical work.
