Really happy with the service and work I received from Dean and his apprentice. I had a number of new light fittings to install and also wanted some advice on getting power and lighting to our garages. I will book dean again for future work and highly recommend! Thanks again, Dean, the lighting looks amazing.

I am writing this review on behalf of my parents. I always use and recommend Dean to everyone. Recently my parents had a problem with random power going off at some parts of their home. Being elderly , Dean attended on site immediately, identified the issue and fixed it. He is very experienced and a genuine person , does not waste time and most importantly fixes the problem without overecharging. Would highly recommend Dean.

As a tradesperson myself I have seen and dealt with many trades of varying degrees of quality, from some of the best (rare) to some real shockers unfortunately. Dean and his team of guys most definitely impressed, the whole way through. Thanks Dean for coming by so quickly and for organising the job at lighting speed. Most appreciated thank you. Your guys were early/right on time and so friendly, polite and professional. I’m wrapped with Rob’s work and his meticulousness. Your team is teaching each other quality, and apprentice Shannon is so keen and willing to learn and keen to be helpful and back up his ‘mentor’ on the job at such a young age.. It was awesome to see!!! Quality is hard to find. Definitely highly recommend. Champions! Thank you

Dean with his excellent team (Al and John) did a number of electical jobs around our home recently. We are very happy with the whole process and outcome. Even when we added more items on the fly they were happy to accomodate and did everything to a very high standard. I highly recommend Approved Electrix for all your electrical needs!

I needed a data cable installed at our new unit. AE attended the site on short notice and provided a quote, and were able to start the job two days later. The day of the work, the electricians arrived promptly at their start time and completed their work. Would hire again.

I needed some domestic work: a mix of new power points and lights, the relocation of internet (FTTB) modem point to a more convenient location, and then running two cat6 network cables from the modem point across my apartment to another rooms.Dean responded fast to provide a detailed and competitive quote. Once confirmed he was able to schedule the job two days later.I work in IT and have seen lots of electrical work carried out by various electricians over the years so I'm confident in saying that his guys carried out the work very professionally.Rob turned up when they said he would, had the all necessary parts already with him, did the work to a high quality, and most impressively, was able to recommend creative and low cost solutions for a couple of things I hadn't considered, e.g. the network cables were cleverly able to be routed via the roof space to in between the narrow wall so there was no additional unsightly holes or conduit. Then they tested everything properly and cleaned up very well after themselves.This is all consistent with my previous experience when employing Dean several times over the past almost 10 years. Great service at reasonable prices... what more could you ask for?!

I have been using Dean and his team regularly since 2016 to assist with a range of electrical works at both my house and my parent's unit. Not only has he been very responsive and easy to deal with but the work is always of the highest quality. Highly recommended!

I went to the trouble of getting a number of quotes for a TV to be mounted & for x3 ceiling fans to be installed. Approved Electrix was not only the quickest business to respond, but the easiest to communicate with and had the most affordable quote. Their text message booking system was easy to use and made communication really easy. I was home the day the electrician (Al) came to do the job. He was so kind and helpful. He chatted to me about what he was doing and asked lots of questions has he installed the items to ensure they were positioned in the most ideal location. He even helped me fix up a few other small jobs in my house, he was wonderful & it was an excellent experience. I will definitely be using them again if I ever need electrical work done. Thank you for such a seamless service and thank you to Al for his work at my place 🙂

The boys did fantastic work very quickly at my place. My new garage is now wired up for cameras and electric car charging couldn’t be happier.Really appreciate Jordon accomodating changes to the plan on the fly as I thought of additional stuff I would like. Shannon also did great work from digging trenches to getting in the roof to run cables and wiring up all my new lights. I’ll definitely use these guys again.

Received 4 quotes for a switchboard upgrade. This group was the most professional and gave me the most confidence. Was flexible in adjusting the work to suit my preferences, turned up on time, work was completed without fuss and I was pleasantly surprised that they cleaned up everything at the end. I had an inspector drop by to review the work (because this included a new mains connection from the street) and they said it was a ‘good job’. Recommended.

Very happy experience with Approved Electrix. Very prompt response to my request. Though mine was a small job, got rid of an unwanted wire and relocated a PowerPoint, it was done quickly and nicely. Thanks again to Dean and his team. Definitely will call them again when I have another job in the future.

FAQ's

What does a switchboard do?

An electrical switchboard divides your domestic or commercial property’s primary power feed into various branching circuits, these being smaller streams of electricity that are then distributed to other electrical equipment like transformers and panelboards around a property. The electricity is then further distributed to the various electrical equipment and devices throughout the property like power points and lights. 

One reason you may need to upgrade your residential or commercial switchboard is that you intend to add new outlets, lights and other electrical fixtures, or if you intend to boost the capacity of your property’s electrical system. You should also enlist a licensed electrician to perform switchboard repairs if you notice electrical faults like fuse tripping, blinking lights or an overheating switchboard. Another reason to upgrade your switchboard is to adhere to electrical compliance and safety requirements as set out by Energy Safe Victoria.

The cost of upgrading a switchboard varies greatly depending on factors such as the circuit capacity and complexity of your new switchboard, the intended location of the switchboard and any additional electrical safety equipment you want to install alongside your switchboard, such as circuit breakers or safety switches. A complete overhaul of your existing switchboard will also cost more than a simple rewiring. 

For a more precise quote on updating your electrical switchboard, don’t hesitate to contact Approved Electrix via our website.

Typically, a switchboard upgrade can take anywhere between four and eight hours.  

The precise time it takes to upgrade your commercial or residential switchboard depends on your property’s specific requirements. For instance, a complete overhaul of your electrical switchboard will take significantly longer than a rewiring job. Installing a brand new switchboard will also take more time than upgrading your existing switchboard. 

Unless you’re a licensed electrician, you should always hire professionals to perform a switchboard upgrade or installation. Trying to do so yourself can cause significant injuries from electrical shock. A licensed electrician will also ensure that there is no collateral damage to either your switchboard or other electrical devices during the upgrade/installation process. Moreover, a licensed switchboard upgrade/installation service provider like Approved Electrix has a comprehensive understanding of Victorian laws and regulations as they relate to switchboard installations and upgrades.

At the beginning of every switchboard upgrade job, the first thing our electricians do is assess your commercial or domestic property’s existing switchboard. We will go over the wiring, circuit breakers, ceramic fuses and all the other components of your switchboard. Then, our electricians begin the task of upgrading your switchboard. This involves rewiring, updating your circuit breakers and even potentially installing a completely new switchboard.
