5 Things to Look for in a Brisbane Plumber

Don’t know what to look for when you type ‘plumber in Brisbane‘ in your web browser? This guide will ensure you get what you pay for the next time you need a plumber in the Sunshine State.

1. Experienced Plumbers in Brisbane

The first thing you want to look for in a Brisbane plumber is that they have experience. The last thing you want is a plumber who has no idea what they are doing. With Metropolitan Plumbing, we have been in the game for 25 years. We have seen it all. From blocked drains to burst pipe repairs, no job is too big or too small. In the last five years, we have even branched out into the electrical and air conditioning sectors.

2. Available Brisbane Plumbing

When emergency strikes, the last thing you want to do is wait around. Choosing a plumber who has 24/7 readiness is of the utmost importance. A company who can be at your door within 1 hour is a huge plus. No one wants to wait weeks, or even days, for a plumber to come out. When you contact your plumber in Brisbane, ask them what their availability is! At Metropolitan Plumbing, we operate every day of the year and can even be at your door within the hour*. What’s more, we don’t charge any extra for after hours service.

3. After Pay Plumbing

If you are worried about the cost of your service or you want the ability to pay off the plumbing work in manageable instalments, look for a plumbing company who uses after pay services. At Metropolitan Plumbing, we offer a range of $0 deposit, interest free payment plans. We work with Zip Pay, Open Pay and Humm. These organisations allow you to pay off the work in manageable instalments. You can choose weekly or fortnightly repayments. And our plumbers have the technology to set you up at your door!

4. Transparency

Have you ever used the services of a professional who completely baffled you with technical jargon? Yeah, we’ve experienced it too. It’s very frustrating. Your Brisbane plumber should inspect your plumbing and be able to explain both the problem and the solution in plain language. That ensures that you’ll know exactly what needs to be done in your home. After all, we all like to be kept in the loop! Clear communication creates trust between your plumber and you. They should clearly outline the price from the beginning. Upfront pricing is essential. Before the work begins you want to be assured that the price is within your budget. This way, there will be no nasty surprises when the bill arrives.

5. Clean Plumbers Brisbane

It might seem trivial to some but we value the importance of cleanliness and tidiness at Metropolitan Plumbing. That’s why our plumbers will always arrive at your home in a clean and tidy van with instantly recognisable signage. That van will be stocked with the latest technology to complete most plumbing emergencies on the spot. Our plumbers will always be well presented, courteous and friendly. Perhaps most importantly, they will leave your home in the same condition as they found it, ensuring any dust or debris is removed and floors around the worksite are swept.

I rang Metropolitan to have a blocked drain cleared, they sent a local lad, Caleb. The response was within two hours and now I’ll be using Caleb and Metropolitan on a permanent basis.
