5 Reasons Why People Choose Metropolitan Plumbing

When it comes to reliable plumbing services, Australian homeowners have turned to Metropolitan Plumbing (full name: Metropolitan Plumbing Electrical and Air Conditioning) for well over 25 years.

Known for our professional service and customer-first approach, as well as our infamous dripping tap radio ads, the brand is a bonafide household name across the country.

From fixing burst pipes or leaking taps, to booking a technician for a planned installation, having a trustworthy local plumber service is crucial. So let’s take a look at five compelling reasons why Aussie homeowners typically choose us for their home plumbing needs. From upfront pricing to rapid response times, you’ll discover what sets Metropolitan apart from the pack when you’re looking for lasting long term solutions.

1. No Extra Charge After Hours

One of our key features at Metropolitan Plumbing Electrical and Air Conditioning is our “No Extra Charge For After Hours” policy. Not only does this include services needed outside of the standard 9-5 business day, but it also includes weekends and public holidays.

Most of us typically find that plumbing issues don’t conveniently occur during regular business hours. Or if they do happen then we’re at work and find out only when we get home. What does this mean? It means we’re often slugged with exorbitant added fees for an emergency call-out job.

Metropolitan understands this common frustration and ensures you pay the same fair rate, no matter when you need a plumber ASAP. We want you to rest easy, knowing that a late-night burst pipe or early-morning blocked toilet won’t break the bank. It’s just another way we make customer satisfaction a priority, providing convenient and reliable services that get you out of hot water. Pun intended.

2. Metropolitan Plumbing is Available 24/7

Plumbing emergencies can strike at any time, often when you least expect them. That’s why Metropolitan Plumbing offers 24/7 availability, ensuring you have access to professional servicing whenever you need it. Whether it’s a burst pipe at midnight or a blocked drain on a public holiday, our technicians are always ready to respond.

This round-the-clock service is especially valuable for Australian homeowners, who can rely on prompt and efficient assistance regardless of the time or day. With Metropolitan, you’re never left in a lurch. We provide peace of mind and immediate solutions to keep your home running smoothly.

3. At Your Home in One Hour*

Major plumbing emergencies need urgent attention. We get it. Metropolitan Plumbing prides itself on its quick response times, and will always aim to be at your home within one hour* of your call.

This rapid service is essential for Aussie homeowners dealing with urgent plumbing issues. Whether it’s a burst pipe, a leaking tap, or a blocked drain, Metropolitan ensures you won’t be left stranded in a stressful situation. Our prompt arrival helps keep damage and inconvenience to a minimum, which in turn offers much-needed relief and a light at the end of the tunnel blocked pipe.

Knowing that professional help is just an hour away* gives homeowners peace of mind and confidence in managing any plumbing emergency efficiently and effectively.

4. Finance Options Available**

Metropolitan Plumbing Electrical and Air Conditioning acknowledges that unexpected plumbing issues can significantly affect your household budget. To ease this burden, eligible customers can apply for one of our flexible finance plans**. These plans allow you to pay off our plumbing and gas fitting services over convenient weekly, fortnightly or monthly instalments. They’re also available to our electrical and air conditioning customers.

Whether you’re facing an emergency toilet repair or planning a major hot water system installation, you can choose a payment plan** that fits your financial situation. These finance options** make essential plumbing services more accessible, allowing you to manage costs without sacrificing quality or safety.

5. Fully Licensed and Experienced Plumbers

When it comes to plumbing jobs in and around the home, the expertise and qualifications of your plumber matter.

Metropolitan employs fully licensed and experienced plumbers, so homeowners can be assured of high-quality service on any job. In addition to their foundational education, our plumbers receive extensive continued training that keeps their skills and knowledge fresh and up-to-date. In addition, their hands-on experience means they can handle any plumbing issue, from a routine fix to comprehensive maintenance and complex installations. By adhering to Australian standards and regulations, we guarantee that every job is performed safely and effectively.

With Metropolitan Plumbing, you receive gold-standard service from professionals committed to providing reliable and lasting solutions for your home.
