Our pricing

We do not have a one-size-fits-all price for electrical work as we believe in only charging for the services you need.

However, we understand it would be helpful to get an understanding of how our pricing works before scheduling any work...

Our approach

This page provides estimated price ranges for common electrical jobs using examples, so you know what to expect from using our services. The exact price for your particular job will depend on the specifics of the work required and materials needed.

We are upfront and transparent about costs, and provide free estimates for all jobs before performing any work. Our highly trained electricians aim to provide quality service and craftsmanship at a fair price.

Client Testimonials
What I love is their consistency. I can just the team to get on with the job. They are all presentable, polite and tidy up after themselves which means I also don’t need to worry about their interactions with our customers.
Lauren Smith
The thing with tradesmen is that it’s not down to just the price. You want a team who will turn up when they say they will, and give you good value for money. It takes a lot of time trying to find tradesmen – so when they do a good job – you stick with them!
Alan Seywright
Absolutely delighted. I needed some urgent work done to bring electrics up to code to be able to sell. Lumen were able to get me a convenient appt, good communication about the timing, accurate quote and time it would take. Cleaned up and very thorough and professional. Highly recommend.
Kiki Belle
It was the first time we had used the company. Everything about the work was very professional and efficient. Quick responses, giving clear dates for the work. They arrived on time and carried out the work quickly and tidily. A very positive experience and would not hesitate to use them again.
John Whitelock
I found dealing with the staff of Lumens a very straightforward and honest experience. Arrived at the stated time and carried out all the work. Also spent extra time fixing a problem (outside the work that they'd planned for) that the newly installed fuse box alerted us to - very grateful for sorting this extra problem out quickly.
