Q. Can I do any small electrical work myself?
A. Even if you think you know what to do and are tempted at possibly saving a few dollars, it is illegal in Queensland for anyone who isn't a qualified electrician to conduct electrical work. Not only is there a penalty of up to $40,000, the cost of you or someone you love losing their life is too great to risk it.

You could be at risk of voiding your home and contents insurance by conducting DIY electrical work. As licensed electrical contractors, we are covered by public liability insurance with customer protection which is not assured for DIY work.
