Re: Electric quote
950 All in?
A- Is that a firm quote? or just a rough estimate?
B - Did you a get a drawing? - or do you at least know what you are getting and where it is going?
Armed with that knowledge, head to you nearest Home Depot or Menards.
Price it all out. Panel, breakers, emt, connectors, bends, fasteners, wire, main feed wire, genny connector box, outlets, outlet boxes, outlet covers, outlet box connectors. Anti short bushings.
I wouldn't be surprised if that is $500, ish.
Heck my genny outlet, genny cable and main feed line totaled more than 500.
Heck my INSPECTION was $700.
Is this a buddy? or friend of a friend?
Get a few more quotes. Ask a lot of questions.
KNOW the local laws.
Some places REQUIRE a licensed contractor to do it.
If you can, talk to the inspectors.
In my area, we only have 5 options for inspectors.
I talked to ALL of them.
I got different answers from every one.
I chose the inspector that was easy to work with, and understands that a truck is not a building.
I interviewed a few different electricians.
Same thing, all different answers.
Even the ones I thought I would use, would have done it wrong.
But all they care about is getting my money.
Make sure that you pay no more than a deposit up front.
And do not make final payment until the job is done and PASSED inspection.
The last thing you want is to fail inspection for something stupid like no anti-shorts and have to have your guy have to go back and spend 2 hours putting them in and charge you more for something HE missed.
Get a bigger panel than you need in case you want to add something later.
If you have not already done so, stand in your trailer for a while, with a roll of painters tape, visualize the fork flow.
Try to imagine where everything will be. ( I set up cardboard boxes too )
Try to make sure you are putting enough outlets where you want them.
