Yes total rip off!!! Never use them.

published

I bought a 30-year-old house and I wanted make sure all the electrical cables and socket are safe. Quoted me $6000 to do safety check, change all the lights to led and set new cables.

Expected a good job because I paid a lot of money but ended up like $60 work. Even more, the electrician asked me a tip. What a joke!

Now they removed their information from google due to numerous complaints about them.

Do not bother

published

Ii arranged a time for them to come out. They did not bother to keep the time and wanted to make a time to suit two days later. Customer service zero. Professionalism - not much.

I do not know why they stay in business.

Totally overpriced rip off

published

Booked them to come out and quote on installing 5 light fittings in our Adelaide house - they quoted $1200 - yes thats not a typo - I asked if he thought it would take 12 hours to do sarcastically and he laughed embarrassedly and said no but that was the price. I told him not to waste my time as that was a complete rip off and he should not expect me to pay the call out fee of $49. That was a ridiculous joke. I then complained to their head office and said they were a disgrace of a company!! Another electrician has quoted the job as $200 and will complete it next week. Avoid at all costs!!

Avoid like an outbreak of Ebola!

Mr Power advertised as if they were local electricians. Two electricians turned up at my house when only one was necessary. Besides the call-out fee, they said they would charge extra just to look at the problem even if the job did not proceed. Then the prices quoted for my "agreement" turned out to be 2 to 3 times higher than those charged by other genuinely local electricians. When I asked for the cost of materials and labour to be separately identified I was told it is not the company's policy to do so. Mr Power turned out to be a real shocker - buyer beware!

Mr Power.

published

I live in a double storey townhouse and was given a quote of $740 for a data point between 2 rooms & lost $50 for this joke of a callout fee. From what I've read/asked around it should been $200-300 for a single data point but these jokers even call back 2 days later asking if I wanted to proceed with the work! I regret not googling reviews beforehand & was careless of me, wished I saw this site sooner.


Disordered technician and terrible sevice

published

Indeed the worst service I have ever experienced. Mr Power charged me at a premium price and delivered nothing. There is a reason why everyone has given such a low rate and leaves those harsh comments.

I won't blame the rude technician who attended my house, nor will I blame the disordered management the company has. Just want to say that I won't leave a 1 star rate if a half star option is given.

Do not trust the $20 off Ad in their website. I mentioned it after the $181 quote and the electrician said it was already included. What can I say....
I guess I would get the discount if I went ahead for the switchboard replacement.

Exploitative over pricing

published

Lost power today on one circuit. Mr Power charged $220 just to arrive. The charged $180 for 0 to 20 minutes diagnosis (20-40 minutes was more). Then charged $374 to replace a $40 RRP part which too less than 20 minutes to do. $795 for 40 minutes work and $40 in parts.
Quoted price for call out inc GST, but quoted prices for other work had GST added on. There was no notice given that the quoted price was ex GST. I believe that this is illegal.
This was on top of missing their promised appointment window by 1.5 hours.
But when you are stuck without power.

Mr Power - the electrical side of Mr H2O - overcharging is the name of the game.

published

Talk about over charging for a job. We had Mr Power (the electrical side of Mr H20), out to quote on installing a ceiling fan & relocating a pendant light. Their quote came back at $1043 - yes, seriously.
We shopped around and had another company do the job for $198. It took an electrician 2 hours at $90 an hour.
I cannot believe that there are people who accept these ridiculous quotes without shopping around - clearly those that do, have more money than sense.
On top of all this, they arrived over an hour late.

Incredibly expensive. Arrived an hour late
