Electrician in Geneva needed

Hi all,

can anyone recommend a good electrician in canton of GE, who is also reasonably priced, if such thing exists? We need someone to fit in three ceiling lights. Fairly easy job, but one we cannot do ourselves due to the rental agreement. Thanks in advance.

You don't really need an electrician for this .. More like a handy man who knows electrics.

You find a list here

Or this Facebook group

HireMyHusband is one such service - He charges something like 90 per hour.. Which would probably put up 3 lights!

Please don't "HireMyHusband" ... unless you want to learn a lot of swear words in French that aren't even in the dictionary.

Re: Electrician in Geneva needed

It was a joke... I was referring to my own husband who thinks the house will fall down if he bangs a nail in the wall & streams of bad language come out at the mere hint of anything DIY. No doubt the husbands other people may be renting out are of another variety. I know nothing about Mike.

I've gotten a quote from Mike, and he was a tad more expensive than the highest rated handyman on Glocals (he charged per light fixture plus 50 CHF call-out fee. The other guy had a flat fee). Booked Adam now for Friday am - keeping my fingers firmly crossed.

That's how I read your post at first - and cracked up

I know a guy who has a really special gift. If you give him a concrete drill he can immediately locate both water pipes and electrical conduits even if they are buried deep in the concrete. Far more reliable than those electronic detectors.

Other than this rare gift, he's pretty useless.
