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 is included in an electrical safety check for a rental property?

During a rental electrical safety inspection, we’ll perform a comprehensive audit of wiring, switchboards, safety switches and other electrical fixtures. We’ll check whether they’re installed properly and identify potential safety hazards. At the end of the electrical system evaluation, we’ll produce an electrical safety certificate that accords with AS/NZS 3019. According to the law, electrical safety checks should be performed in rental properties every 2 years. 

During a gas safety inspection, we will use tests like a negative pressure test and a carbon monoxide test to ensure that all your gas fixtures and appliances are safe and fully operational. As laid out by AS/NZS 3019, we recommend you enlist the services of our licensed gas plumbers to carry out gas safety checks every 2 years.

Electric and gas safety inspections need to be carried out every 2 years by a licensed electrician or a gas plumber, respectively. Our licensed professionals will conduct checks on your electrical/gas equipment to identify faults, equipment in need of replacement and potential safety hazards. Owners of rental properties are required to receive a safety certificate at the end of these safety checks. 

You can book a licensed electrician or gas plumber by scheduling an electrical or gas check on your rental property with Approved Electrix. To verify whether an electrician or a gas plumber/gasfitter is licensed, you can look up their details on the Energy Safe Victoria Website. Always ask your electrician/gas plumber for their name and license number before they start on a gas or electric inspection at your rental property. 

Landlords need to have an electrical safety check conducted as soon as possible if an electrical safety audit hasn’t been carried out in more than two years. Failure to produce an electrical safety certificate may result in fines and other legal consequences. 

Landlords are responsible for arranging rental electrical safety checks at least once every two years. They are also obliged to provide an electrical safety certificate to tenants within 7 days upon request. 

Tenants are responsible for using electrical appliances in a safe manner and informing their landlords of any potential faults in writing so that the latter can arrange an electrical systems evaluation on the rental property.
