HOW MUCH DOES AN ELECTRICIAN COST IN SANIBEL ISLAND?

Electrical contractors on Sanibel Island usually set their pricing in one of two ways:

  1. Charge “flat-rate”.
    1. With flat-rate pricing, the customer is told up front what the exact price is for the service work preferred. With this model, the customer can be confident knowing exactly what they will pay. This is the model we use at Coharbor Electric, as we have found this to be the best value to our customers. 
  2. Charge for “Time & Materials”.
    1. In this case, the electrical contractor charges you by the hour and adds on the cost of all the materials needed to complete the job. The customer doesn’t really know for certain the final bill, until the work is complete.
