PRICING FAQ

“How much does it cost” or, “What is the price?” are 2 of the most common questions we are asked at Crew. With few exceptions it is impossible to provide accurate pricing over the phone and here is why:

Our office staff who answer the phones are trained to provide excellent customer service and gather all the necessary information to get a trained expert to your home. Their job is to provide excellent customer care and to help with many aspects of your service, but they are not electricians.

Frequently Asked Questions

At Crew Electrical Services, we charge by the job, not by the hour. We have found that most of our customers prefer to know what the final price will be before committing to a service. Once our technician evaluates your exact situation, they will provide you with a firm written price that won’t change even if the project turns out to be more difficult than expected. No surprises and we will not ever do any work without your advance approval.

When you are having electrical issues, the last thing you need to worry about is not knowing what the final cost will be. Upfront or flat-rate pricing is fair to everyone and encourages efficiency, not working either slow or trying to hurry. No surprises, you know the final price before we start!

The trip charge to send a technician out to your home is 100% applied to any services we provide that day or to larger projects that cannot be completed the same day. It costs money and time for a technician to go out to your home and to evaluate whatever issue you are having. There are only so many working hours in a day and we want to utilize our technicians’ time wisely out of respect for both your time and theirs.

Unfortunately, it is usually not possible to provide accurate pricing over the phone. Please see our No Phone Guessing Guarantee. The office staff who answer the phones are trained to set up an appointment for you or answer some general questions about our services. They are not technicians. Since many people have no idea what electrical services cost, we have provided general ballpark pricing on our pricing page. There are many factors that affect the specific pricing of any given project and sometimes even the simplest seeming jobs are not so simple after all. The prices listed have a wide range and most jobs fall somewhere in between.

Flat rate or upfront project pricing is a completely different pricing structure than charging by the hour plus materials. All costs of the job, including all labor, materials, taxes, overhead and any other expenses are already included in the quoted price. Since we do not charge by the hour, we don’t track the materials or time separately. We are not able to break down our prices that way. The prices we use are based on national averages and include the costs of doing business in our area in a fully compliant manner with all local, state and federal requirements.

That all depends on who you ask and what you are looking for. If you look at our reviews, you will see many comments from people who feel that our prices are quite reasonable, especially relative to the service they received. Customers who got multiple estimates generally find ours to be right where they expected. Some others say we were more, but they felt the value was worth it and were happy with their decision. You will also find testimonials all over the internet stating that they had gone with the cheapest price in the past but then had to hire someone else to re-do the work. We aim to provide the best value, safe installation and customer experience, not the cheapest price.
