Electrician companies in Bundaberg - a guide to finding the best. feature image
Posted in Electrical

You might be wondering, why have we put together these details on electrician companies in Bundaberg, since they are our competitors.

Simply put, we believe in giving back to both our industry and also our community, so this is one small way to do this. We hope you get value from this short local guide and see how many great electricians are helping make electricity safe and enjoyable for the Bundaberg and Wide Bay Burnett region.

3 key reasons for this Electrician companies in Bundaberg list:

  1. Our market is saturated with so many options (not all good but as you will see there are some great options - we would be amiss to not say we are one of them 😃) and it’s impossible for all the newcomers in our industry to compete with the well-established businesses. This is a way to give back to our industry and highlight some of the local electrical businesses that are giving business a go. To walk your own journey and build your own customer base, is not an easy journey but it is very rewarding for those with passion, customer service and skills to back this up with.
  2. It’s clear our market has a huge range of options to choose from, so if you're a local homeowner or business owner this article should give you a quick list of some of the key Bundaberg Electricians in our area.
  3. Probably the biggest reason is it highlights key things we should be looking at rather than just the amount of reviews or even stars. Though both are very important.

We don’t know all these businesses and this list is in no way us recommending any particular business (except ours 😜, so if you were really only looking for a great Bundaberg electrician then get in touch) but it’s more about highlighting the huge amount of people out in our community who work hard to make a living. The main thing we say is:

"support your local businesses by using them and through this we can all contribute to building a thriving and safe community"

The list below shows top Electrician companies in Bundaberg based on the following criteria:

  • The search "electricians near Bundaberg" in Google My Business*
  • Businesses with only 5-star ratings
We are excited to see we are the top electrical business based on the amount of reviews and star ratings that come up in this search.

Please note our results are based on two local listings we have, one has 3 reviews and the other has 9 reviews. As a business grows it is always going to be near impossible (depending on the industry though and it’s still a good goal to aim for) to maintain a 5-star rating but a 4.5+ star rating is a good benchmark to use for your own business or for businesses you are vetting.

25 Best Electricians

Based on Google Search "Bundaberg Electricians near Me"

Below is the same Google search ("Bundaberg electricians near me") showing all 25 Bundaberg Electricians, listing them in order of most reviews. The star rating is important but it’s also important to look at how many reviews they have. The higher their reviews and their star rating, can assure you of hiring a good company. It is important to note that when looking at reviews always make sure they look valid, well rounded, and authentic. There are some companies out there that are paying people to do this but looking at the list we have come up with, reviews appear to be authentic and real, which is great to see. We were also excited that for a newer business, that we were still in the top 4 businesses locally.

It’s not always about the quantity of reviews but the quality

As mentioned, it is not always the quantity of reviews but the quality of reviews on a business. For example here are couple of recent ones we recieved:

"We are new to Bargara and needed some electrical work done to our 8 year old (new to us) house. Several other tradies recommended Carve Industries (Shane) as the best in the area. We were not disappointed. The work was done quickly and at a competitive price. We are happy to recommend Shane and his team!"

Peter And Geraldine Castleton

"Shane and the team did a wonderful job installing air-conditioning in our home. Highly recommend."

Kerri Elliott

"Couldn't recommend Shane enough. Great work, goes out of his way to meet deadlines and quality work."

Nicholas Samra

Conclusion

So when you're next looking for a Bundaberg electrician, be sure to check their star ratings and more importantly their reviews. We did focus on Google My Business reviews in this article but often Facebook business pages will have reviews also, so it’s also a great place to check reviews. Again, this list and research is not exhaustive as everyone searches differently and from different locations but it definitely shows there are some good options and key things we should all be looking for. We wish everyone safety, family enjoyment and success in life. If you have any questions about this article or need a friendly team of customer-focused electricians, then get in touch.
