The 5 Best Electricians in Rangiora

We’ve already offered you our choices for the best electricians in Christchurch, but if you live in  nearby Rangiora, this list today is for you.

Each region might have its own landscape, but the makings of a good electrician remain the same. Our choices in this article are still based on their expertise, range of services, and positive client feedback.

Before we discuss our picks for the best electricians in Rangiora, let’s talk cost first.

How much do electricians cost in Rangiora?

Now, if you’re going to hire an electrician in Rangiora, you can expect to spend on average around $75 to $80 per hour. These fees for labor can vary up or down, depending on the experience or level of expertise of the electrician.

Master Electricians, for example, can charge up to $120 for each hour of their time. An apprentice, on the other hand, may only cost you around $40.

Unfortunately, the fees don’t end there – there are travel expenses (also known as a call-out fee) and the cost of materials to consider as well. Do take note that there’s GST to consider as well, which is usually already included in your quotation or invoice.

Now, here’s a table showing common electrical services and their price ranges:

ELECTRICAL SERVICEPRICE RANGE
Automation programmingFrom $140
Power socket install or repair$150 – $250
Washing machine/heater power point$150 – $250
Air conditioning or heat pump repair$150 – $300
Hot water cylinder repairFrom $200
Electrical inspections$250 – $400
Air conditioning or heat pump installFrom $400

Moreover, if you call out an electrician after hours or for an emergency, you can expect to pay an even higher hourly rate for their services. So if it’s not an urgent matter, we highly suggest you schedule their time wisely.

The table below shows a sample of what an electrician in Rangiora might charge for their services.

1.  Campbell Electrical

SERVICES Commercial, Residential, Heat Pumps, Servicem8
WEBSITEhttps://www.campbellelectrical.co.nz/
ADDRESS17 Salisbury Avenue, Rangiora 7400
CONTACT DETAILSPhone: (027) 341-3952
Email: [email protected]
OPERATING HOURSMonday to Friday: 8:00am – 4:00pm

Campbell Electrical was founded by Blair Campbell, a licensed electrician with over a decade of experience in the field. He also has a National Certificate in Electrical and Electronics Engineering from Christchurch Polytechnic Institute of Technology.

Campbell Electrical can handle projects of all sizes, although they specialize mostly in general residential service work. They have also handled a range of commercial fit-outs, repairs, installation of downlights, and Test & Tag.

What we like best about Campbell Electrical though, is that all of their projects come with a one-year workmanship warranty. While they may not provide a Master Electrician guarantee, a 24-month warranty is most welcome.

With a total combined experience of over 50 years among its employees, Campbell Electrical is equipped to handle projects of varying difficulties. So whether you need help with automating the connectivity of your home or installing an emergency power backups system, their electricians have the experience to get it up and running.

Just like other businesses, customer service is at the root of Campbell Electrical’s business mantra. While they also claim an “on-time guarantee” when showing up for a job, we would have liked some sort of consequence if they fail to meet that guarantee.

In our opinion, offering a discount on services or labor if they show up late could help convince customers further to avail of their services. Nevertheless, an “on-time guarantee” is not a claim made often, so it’s still very much appreciated.

Campbell Electrical also offers 24-hour emergency services, which a lot of business owners will probably patronize. They offer free consultations and quotations as well, even if they have to travel out to a site to inspect it.

In short, if you’re looking for a no-frills electrician providing a range of services, Campbell Electrical fits the bill. They can help you from the design stage up to maintaining an electrical system, which earns them a spot on our list as one of the best electricians in Rangiora.

Pros

  • 24/hour emergency service
  • On-time guarantee
  • Free consultations

Cons

  • No consequences (or discounts) if they’re late
  • Only started offering heat pumps recently (which means it’s not really their speciality)

Customer Reviews

They have always exceeded expectations

“We have been using Campbell Electrical for 3 years and will not look elsewhere for any electrical works. They have looked after all of our Commercial electrical needs from general reactive repairs to large Capex projects. Their processes are simple and their quality of customer service is outstanding. The owner has always had a hands on approach when dealing with us and to us this adds a lot of value in building a lasting relationship. They have always exceeded expectations and solved any and all electrical problems that had arisen. Their security solutions are exceptional value for money too.” – Calvin Rorke, Commercial Real estate Company

They are the best 

“They have done multiple projects for me in the last year including a full large villa rewire project. They are the best I’ve come across and Blair is a solution focused, switched on operator.” – Salt Projects

OPERATING HOURSMonday to Friday: 8:00am – 5:00pm

The Laser Group was first established by Peter Bassett and David Clemmett in 1983, two registered electricians offering their services. They later transformed into a franchise business, offering locally run businesses “memberships” to operate under the Laser moniker.

Laser Electrical Rangiora is one of Laser Group’s “members”, which has a team of registered electricians and certified refrigeration engineers. They service the entire greater North Canterbury region, accommodating the residential, rural, and industrial sectors. 

They offer a full suite of electrical services, which include heating and ventilation as well. They likewise work closely with agri-businesses, restaurants, and other food-related businesses to install and repair commercial refrigeration equipment.

We like Laser Electrical Rangiora because they’re one of the few companies in the vicinity that can install, repair, and maintain PV solar, hot water solar, LED lighting, and EV chargers. However, in our opinion, the best reason to consider Laser Electrical Rangiora is their access to a wide collective network of resources in the Laser Group. 

Not only do they have access to lower-cost supplies, but they can tap into the knowledge and expertise shared across the entire company. What this means for you is that Laser Electrical Rangiora can probably fix any problem you have, and if they can’t, they’ll know somebody in the Laser Group who can. 

This particular Laser branch in Rangiora is also worth considering because they also have plumbers on hand. They also have expertise in rural settings, providing electrical services on farms, sheds, cottages, and homesteads. 

Another unique service they offer is the installation of a centralized vacuum system for your home or business. These systems can carry dirt and dust away from living or working spaces, making them healthier and cleaner for their occupants. 

Now while all might seem well and good, Laser Group Rangiora doesn’t offer 24/7 emergency call-out services. 

Pros

  • Offers both plumbing and electrical services
  • Competitive pricing
  • Multiple branches across New Zealand

Cons

  • No 24-hour emergency services
  • No financing options

Customer Reviews

Pegasus Bay Electrical Ltd was founded in 2005 by Stew De Joux, a registered electrician with over two decades of experience in multiple areas of the industry. 

They have six skilled and qualified tradesmen with a wide range of experience – three of these tradesmen are registered electricians. They can take on a wide range of projects, although they specialize in property maintenance, new build fit-outs, and renovations.

However, they’ve also completed several more demanding commercial projects such as office networking, switchboard work, and even farm maintenance. 

They likewise are not strangers to providing scheduled maintenance for business owners, facility managers, builders, and project managers.

Rewiring is one of Pegasus Bay Electrical’s specialties too – they can outfit any job site with dedicated cables for security, network, communication, and even entertainment. 

So, if you’re building or renovating, they can even accommodate all your “wants” for the ultimate home theatre layout.  

Moreover, if you want a truly modern home or office, they can assist you with home automation so that you can turn on your lights, music, and thermostat with a single button. They can also arrange for you to be able to turn on your heat pumps before you get home, so you can enter into a warm house. 

While their services may not come cheap, Pegasus Bay Electrical tops it off with a two-year Master Electrician workmanship guarantee of up to $20,000. 

So, whether you’re a builder, property manager, homeowner, or even a farmer that needs electrical services, Pegasus Bay Electrical is an option worth looking into.

OPERATING HOURSMonday to Sunday: 7:00am – 6:00pm

This one’s a bonus because even if it isn’t in Rangora, it’s close enough to serve it. 

Gregs Electrical Service Ltd was founded in 1998 by Greg Howie. They provide electrical services to homes & businesses across Canterbury and the North Canterbury Area. 

With competitive rates, Gregs Electrical Service Ltd provides services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. They offer emergency call-outs no matter what time of the day and can respond immediately for any electrical emergency you may have.

They specialize in new home builds, house rewiring, switchboard upgrades, LED lighting, and more.  No job is too big or too small for this company, even though they’re primarily a one-man operation.

Another specialty service they offer is upgrading all of your old light fittings and fixtures to more eco-friendly LEDs in one convenient package. We like that they use products from Visionary Technologies – a local supplier based in Christchurch that is 100% Kiwi-owned. 

We also like that during the installation phase, they’ll make sure that there are no gaps in the fittings and fixtures that might allow heat to escape. This thoughtful attention to detail combined with the low wattage-high output LED lights can help lower your utility bill and save you money.

Not limited to residential services, Gregs Electrical Service also specializes in working with industrial installations and appliances. They can provide PLC programming and diagnostics for programable logic controllers from brands such as Allen Bradley, Hitachi & Siemens.

If you need an intricate and dedicated data cabling, security, and alarm system, Gregs Electrical Service also has the experience to do it. They’ve also installed home automation using Clipsal C-Bus management systems.

Now while Gregs Electrical Services Ltd may primarily be run by a single person, you can expect to have more fair pricing compared to larger companies. Going with a smaller company can also open up negotiations for final invoices. 

Pros

  • Offers special full upgrade LED lighting package
  • 24-hour emergency call-outs
  • Competitive pricing

Cons

  • Small team of electricians
  • No Master Electrician guarantee

Customer Reviews

Very fair and reasonable charges 

“Greg answered my call for help on a Sunday morning when there was no power to the washing machines in my small 24/7 Kandu Laundromat in Kaiapoi.  He arrived promptly, traced the problem, repaired the faulty cable and reset the fuse…He is a lovely man, who worked very professionally and invoiced me promptly. I was delighted at his very fair and reasonable charges that were a surprise to me.  I highly recommend Greg for any electrical work.  I will definitely call him again.  Thank you Greg.” – Rae Talaward
