Electricians rate in USVI
We are thinking about relocating to the USVI and would like any information on the Electrical rate there for Licensed and Non-Licensed Electricians.
Any info will be greatly appreciated.
I have paid an electrician $80 an hour for an emergency - smoking sockets- ---~!! --- house visit.
And $45 hr. for contract construction.
And a Refrigeration guy $190 hour for a repair - which although it worked fine, but I felt overcharged - he did come in 1 day and on time though and diagnosed and fixed the problems. I don't regret it but might not call him again.
Construction and Extraction Occupations
Median Hourly $17.61
Mean Hourly $17.64
Mean Annual $36,690
I choose to live in the Caribbean in planning for my infinite future, to try to grow accustomed to the heat...
It was $190 an hour - 1 hour minimum - as I said , good diagnosis and fixed - plus parts $44 - saved buying a new frig and the moving and hassle involved and came on time as promised.
A bit of a surprise but no complaints - he knew what he was doing - NO way did I try and help or offer my useless opinion during the visit.
$190 seems high, but how much time was it really(phone call,travel,repair,invoicing & collecting)?
$44,my guess a timer,but the refrigeration A/C business is NOT what i do, so I`m probably wrong?
Sounds like the guy spent a total of 2hrs.,+ a $30 part/shipping.
If the fridge is nice,& only a few years old,i`d say it`s worth it(provided it works for another 5 years).
Was there a warranty on this unit?
