Electrical Service Upgrade
Amount: $2,600.00
Posted by: Bobby Coe in Woodbridge, NJ.Posted: June 27th, 2012 11:06AM
Amps: 200Electrician: Citywide Electrical Contracting
After getting several estimates on this project we were referred to this contractor. His pricing was competitive and he included add-ons in the basement to bring the home up to current code. The others never mentioned these requirements. The owner was on scene. All their material was laid out in an organized manner. A big relief for me to see based on past experiences. The work was completed in a timely manner and the quality was beyond our expectations. If you are in need of a professional electrician in central New Jersey, Call Citywide

Electrial Panel Upgrade
Amount: $2,200.00

Amps: 100 to 200Electrician:
Just bought a house built in 1960's that came with an old Zinsco 100 amp panel. Upgraded it to a 200 amp panel. We expected to pay about $2000 and spent just a little over that. Electrician handled permit and coordinating with PG & E, and the county building inspector for the "rough in" (first permit check). Felt it was fair price and money well spent. (This was done in 2012- the date thingy didn't let me change it to 2012.)

Moving and upgrading my breaker box and changing out 4 plugs in kitchen,and adding 2 smoke detectors as well
Amount: $3,200.00

Amps: 150Electrician: Milestone electric
Milestone is going to come in and replace and move my breaker box that is original to my house built in 1970's. The one I have is no longer safe because of the brand, and time it was installed. I thought the price was high but they added in so many other things they are going to do at no extra charge. They also guarantee their work for the life of the electric panel.
I did not want just anyone doing this job. after all, it's my house we are talking about. so I felt Milestone was the best company for the job. they are experienced, and backed by the BBB. A great company.
By the way, my old panel was a Federal Pacafic Electric Panel.

Replacing GTE/Sylvania 150A Panel - quote only
Amount: $4,896.00
Posted by: a user in Houston area, TX.Posted: July 2nd, 2011 12:07PM
Amps: 150Electrician: John Moore
House built in 1978. Breaker faulty so entire box has to be replaced. Amazing how "code" requires them to replace all breakers, but if that is done then they have to replace the aluminum pole, and install new ground and and and.... so a $2000 cost for box replacement almost triples, all because the breaker isn't made anymore. I am getting other quotes.

Selling my house that was built in 1979 and the inpection revealed that the panel was one recognized for having a bad bus bar. Had a local electrician recommended by the inspector do the work. Nice guy and the price was reasonable.

New panel
Amount: $700.00

Amps: 200Electrician:
If you get people like Mister Sparky to do your work you are paying about 3 times to much. If you get a local electrician to do it your paying a few hundred extra. Get a guy who works for a company and does it on the side too. The total cost for a new panel and breakers is about 300 bucks (depending on how many breakers and what not). I'll gladly pay someone 400 in labor to wire in my panel while its hot and have it done in a few hours.

After reading several postings on costhelper.com
i read a referal for an Electrical contractor that seemed to good to be true. i must say, after hiring the company for my panel upgrade and seeing the completed project, i too was amazed that an honest contractor could still be had for a price i feel was very fair!
if anybody in the southern california area is in need of this service, do yourself and your wallet a favor and get ahold of this guy.
