    "Devin did a fantastic job. He showed up on time, was polite, knowledgeable, very thorough while also somehow fixing everything much quicker and with far better results than other electricians I’ve used in the past. He had all the parts needed for different jobs, conducted a check of all smoke alarms and found my daughter’s room had an unhooked up alarm. He fixed it, a closet fixture, a bathroom dimmer switch, and a hall light that had been giving us trouble. Things that had been sitting waiting to be fixed all were taken care of swiftly and perfectly. Seriously, best service ever. I couldn’t be happier and will only use this company in the future. They guarantee all their work for 3 years too / regardless of what technician handled it. Oh yeah, and he was super nice to my dog so there was that too! Be careful to give them the ONE phone # you want to use for contacting you though. We gave two with a preference for my husband’s number and they kept calling mine. So when they had to reschedule, they only called my phone and I wasn’t available to answer it as I was at work. So my husband sat waiting for them and it appeared they were no shows. When I called to inquire, they couldn’t have been nicer-made sure that they scheduled us for first available on the weekend and - with the service we received, I couldn’t mark them down any of that. We should have just given one number to begin with. Use this company - you’ll never go anywhere else."

I had wires inside the electrical panes repaired, (2) fluorescent light fixtures replaced, and some light bulbs that needed to be changed. The work was completed effectively and efficiently. Maurice sent me pics of the work along with the invoice of everything entailed to my email. I am satisfied with his customer service.

    "I was very impressed how I was given an advice to call FPL first before proceeding with getting estimates. 3 electricians before this company were trying to sell me panel replacement which will run in few thousands dollars. FPL came and fixed flickering lights in minutes. This company said right away that most likelyit's an FPL problem and I always should call FPL first with this kind of problem. I really appreciate an honesty. Trust is established. Will use them in a future definitely:)"

    Garay Electric, Inc. Logo

    Electrical

    "This is a top-quality electrical contractor. They responded within an hour to my call. I had water in my circuit breaker panel, the main breaker was tripping, and wires were burning. The cause of water intrusion was substandard work by AAA Modern Air when they replaced my roof A/C allowing rainwater to enter the junction boxes on the roof and flood into my breaker panel inside my home. GARAY repaired and sealed the roof j-boxes, replaced the incorrect conduit and fitting that AAA Modern Air installed- material not meant for use in outdoor electrical applications. How this crap work by AAA Modern Air passed the Hollywood code electrical inspection is concerning. GARAY replaced a burned circuit breaker and burned wiring. I picked this company at random, and they exceeded my expectations for quality of work, work ethic, and they are customer centered, and great guys. They are also an Air Conditioning Service company, a great combination of competencies. GARAY is a Broward County licensed contractor. Their rates are incredible, meaning not typical for our region of South Florida. My requirements were for emergency work, I need you now! What qualifies me to write this honest review. I am a retired engineer from a Florida electric utility, but too old now to climb ladders and crawl attics. I thank Home Advisor for listing this company."

Frequently asked questions

  • An electrician’s cost per hour comes in between $50 and $100. It’ll vary depending on your location and the type or professional you hire. Areas with a higher cost of living can expect to pay on the higher end of that scale. Licensing level may also increase the price.
  • Usually you’ll pay a higher rate for the first hour. This covers their travel and time expense. Emergency or after-hours rates are usually higher too – expect to pay an emergency fee of up to $300 plus a higher hourly rate.

Electricians do a fair amount of larger remodeling and new construction projects but also common residential projects including:

For cost information related to the above tasks, visit our Electrical Cost Guide.

  1. Do you have a license to perform electrical work in this state?
    All states require an electrical license or work performed under a Master Electrician. You should also ask how many on the job hours of experience they have.
  2. Do you have insurance?
    Never use one who isn’t insured. You can ask to see proof of insurance.
  3. Do you have prior work references?
    You might skip this for small jobs like installing a light or outlet. For larger projects, always get references.
  4. What are your rates?
    Always ask up front. Getting a detailed quote up front is the best way to go.
  5. Who is going to do the actual work?
    Often, a Master Electrician will come out to diagnose and bid on projects, but they have their apprentice and journeyman electricians do the work. This isn’t a terrible thing, in fact it’s common practice. The Master’s license is on the line with any work he supervises.
  6. Is your work warrantied or guaranteed?
    Any reputable company or contractor warranties their work, usually for at least a year.
  7. Are you usually on time?
    Overbooking is a frequent problem with electrical work. Often, a service call goes long, and they end up showing up at your home late. This common complaint is easily remedied with an up-front and honest discussion. If they can’t be on time, make sure they’ll call.

1. Don’t Be Misled by an Electrician’s Hourly Rates

A truly skilled, well-equipped professional with a truck full of parts that charges $100 an hour can be a much wiser choice than an inexperienced hack, working with inadequate tools and no parts, but charging much less. Often, more experienced professionals get the job done quickly with warrantied work.

2. Compare Travel Charges

Rates reflect travel times. Travel charges can have a big impact on your costs and are in some ways easier to compare than hourly rates. Many electricians spend a third or more of their time navigating traffic on their way to a jobsite. Every contractor must find a way to pay for the expense of driving each day.

3. Bundle Repair Jobs Together

When you feel it’s time to call a pro, review your list and then conduct a mini-inspection of your home. Look for faulty switches and dysfunctional or crowded outlets. When the electrician comes, you’ll save money and time by getting everything taken care of at once.

4. How to Prepare & What to Know Before the Electrician Arrives
  • Be as thorough and detailed in describing your needs to your contractor. The more they know, the quicker the job will go.
  • Before they arrive, prepare a precise list of items you want serviced. Electricians have budgeted their time for a service call. They don’t have time for additional requests once they are on site.
  • Make sure the electrical panel box is accessible. You’ll pay for the time it takes to access it.
  • Clear away fragile items, knickknacks and furniture from areas where you expect the them to work.
  • If you have questions about the project, ask them before they start. Most are happy to run you through the problem and the process of fixing it.
  • Ask about potential issues after the work is complete. During a service call a professional will spot any potential hazards.
  • You’ll lose power to parts of your home while they work. Be prepared to pause anything you’re doing during the service call.
  • In most cases you’ll have the option to either pay at the time of service or have a bill sent to you. You’ll be able to pay with cash, credit and sometimes check.
5. Install Money-Saving Electrical Fixtures
  • By switching from ordinary incandescent light fixtures or bulbs to fluorescent or LED ones, you can substantially reduce energy consumption in your home.
  • Motion detector switches can help you save money on outdoor lighting while at the same time providing very cost-effective security to your home.
  • Creative landscape lighting and indoor accent lighting can make your home more appealing to you, your guests and potential buyers in the future.
