Default Electricians want a change!

just thought id put this out there for any sparkies out there wanting a change/challenge.

I run a heat pump company here in Dunedin and currently employ a sparky on a part time basis.

As good as he is he dosnt have any get up and go and is happy plodding along just doing heat pump electrics for me.

I feel there is a real market and Im keen to develop the electrical side of things.

So im looking for a biz partner of sorts who is registered electrician here in NZ (or capable of getting so).

All very thoughts out loud at the moment but am willing to chat about options etc.

This isnt a 'come up with any dollars type of thing more a bring to the table what you have to offer and see what we can sort out.More interested in what you can offer skills/ideas.
I install for a very large national company here and have a good reputation for quality work.With the right person im sure things could only progress.

so if Dunedin floats your boat wether you are in NZ or thinking of getting here soonish drop me a line for a chat.

got a basic website going at www.hpso.co.nz to give you an idea.

cheers

george

Not a sparkie but got a heat pump question, what make do we go for ? what kind of price should i be paying as it seems to go up 30% as soon as they hear my accent and how many would i need to heat/cool a 330sm house ?

Thanking u Neil

Hi George, sorry unable to help with your question but wanted to give a tip to Neil and other brits about asking for prices and quotes with a UK accent as we also found would be inflated. By using e-mail we found that in many cases quotes came in much lower.
Cheers Jules
