    How Do You Find A Good Honest Plumber?

    The best way to find a good plumber is through a trusted referral; often, it is best to engage a Sydney plumber with whom someone you know already has been involved with and has used. If you do not know a trusted local plumber, the next best thing you can do is check their credentials and do research online and check their reviews. Online reviews are a great way to gauge if a plumber’s previous clients were satisfied with the quality of their products and services, check out Proximity plumbing reviews.

    Furthermore, evaluate only plumbers who can deliver proof of insurance and business registry. In some circumstances, you can also ask the plumber how long he/she has been in the plumbing industry. The more experience the plumber or company has - the better the service usually is.

    Our top tip is to check their Google reviews! If a person you trust can recommend a local Sydney plumber they have used in the past, it's a clear indication if the plumber is reliable and worth engaging. Typically a paying customer pays close attention to costs, the quality of the service, and the value they receive and often will go out of their way to share their experience with a local plumber Sydney.

    Are All Plumbers The Same?

    Not all plumbers were created equal! Unfortunately, like many things in life, you get what you pay for. Plumbers that often promote cheap prices in turn often provide a cheap or inferior service. The sales tactics is to lure you in first with low prices, then add a lot more onto the job once onsite. In reality, it leaves most customers wishing you stuck with your gut and went with a more reputable company that maybe was more expensive.

    Proximity Plumbing has been around for over ten years. We are confident to be around for the next 50 + years as this is a family business that will continue to support the local community for as long as possible. We have made it our mission to be known as the number one plumbing company for the foreseeable future.

    Our #1 Mission Is Breaking The Stigma Associated With Plumbers!

    We all know or have seen on TV a doggy tradie, and unfortunately, it ends up giving the industry a bad name. So our no-BS policy is, keep it simple from the start with an obligation free site attendance. Why? Because we are legitimately local, having eight tradesmen on the road, the likelihood of getting a call-in Bondi or Vaucluse asking for a plumber near now is high & one of our tradesmen is always nearby.

    Many tradies like to advertise a $0 callout fee, although once on site, they charge a service fee which is often waived if a quote is approved, very sneaky, and we believe unethical. We are different, and we prefer to keep it simple and take the pressure away for both the client and our tradesmen, we have linked our blog How to bypass a Sydney plumber which is a great tool to ensure you are not getting sucked into the gimmicks of some untrusting tradies!

    We believe in earning the customers trust first and providing value right from the beginning; we have no issues providing free advice to our local community, we value our reputation over earning a quick dollar, our office in based in Dover Heights NSW 2030 so our tradesmen are never far!

    $0 Call Out Promise As Your Trusted Local Sydney Plumber

    ''65% Of Our Business Is Word Of Mouth & Repeat Customers We Pride Ourselves On The Feedback We Receive!''

    The Golden Question - How Much Does A Plumber Charge?

    Proximity Plumbing does not have an hourly rate; we charge by the job. Although this does not appeal to everyone, we have found this is the most transparent way to conduct business. When it comes to plumbing, every job is different. That is why you are calling us in to fix it. We often find we need to see the problem before letting you know how much it will cost to fix it. That is why we offer the complimentary call out, and once we are on-site, we can determine what the job will cost. Each type of job has an upfront fixed price, and we need to determine what that is by conducting a thorough inspection.

    We respect that our clients are often time-poor professionals who want the job done efficiently and affectedly. They also appreciate their time over money and understand the genuine value. We find billing hourly gives you the incentive to work less efficiently since you are being paid not for the outcome but for your time.

    If you would like to know more about how we charge we have linked our how much do plumbers charge here.

    Obtaining Multiple Quotes

    We encourage that if it’s a bigger job like a sewer rehabilitation or Pipe Relining to get multiple quotes and compare apples for apples. This way, you can see the difference that sets us apart from every other plumbing company & so you can see we are generally providing you with tremendous service, prices, and ultimately great value.

    The Golden Three Rules

    1. No professional plumber can ever give you a price over the phone without an on-site diagnosis just like no doctor could ever diagnosis a patient on the phone.
    2. The old saying, “too good to be true” sums it up! do your research & shop local
    3. It’s unwise to pay too much, but it’s worse to pay too little- licensed vs unlicensed plumber blog here.

    Proximity Plumbing knows that a plumbing emergency can strike at any time, whether it's 2 am from a burst flexible hose or Christmas day and the bathroom floor waste floods- Proximity Plumbing has you covered. That is why we are available and are the Sydney plumber of choice for 24 hours a day, seven days week plumbing services. We never charge overtime for these last-minute, lengthy repairs. We set the same price any time, any day.

    Proximity plumbing ensures each client is treated fairly, we do not provide discounts although we do have an $0 callout, we believe we do not have to complicate jobs by providing discounts as we charge fairly, to begin with. You can also read our blog on why we charge a call-out fee here. Have you ever heard of ' it's too good to be true?' chances are it is, if a plumber has all kinds of discounts and 'buy this get that' 50% off this, $100 off this' -  it's just a scam to lure you in.

    The age-old proverb “You Get What You Pay For” rings especially true with plumbers! However, when it comes to searching for “A Plumber Near Me” you will be inundated with “local” plumbers at bargain prices.

    Again, this is a marketing tactic to be wary of - most likely, these plumbers will charge expensive fees when they finish the job and you’ll be hit with a lot of “extras”. So, take the time to call a few plumbers first and ask some key questions.

    • Do they offer upfront pricing?
    • Is the price fixed or hourly?
    • Are there any emergency/after-hours surcharges?

    A good local plumber will come to your home and provide a free quote, so you know the total cost of repairs before the work starts!

    Choosing the cheapest will not give you the best. A plumber is a qualified technician and has worked for many years to attain their level of expertise. Like any other professional. So, the work they carry out is meant to be of a certain quality and professionalism. In the long run, it’s better to pay a slightly higher price for a plumber who knows what they’re doing than to risk an unqualified person attending the job and making the issue worse.

     

    We use upfront and easy-to-understand quoting system with no hidden costs. We believe in fantastic service to our clients and ensure your job is completed to the highest possible standard.
    We accept Credit Card (master card, visa & Amex)

    We know our plumbing industry is highly competitive. However, not all plumbers hold the professionalism, knowledge, maturity & understanding like we do when it comes to customer service & that is what allows us to stand apart.

    As Proximity Plumbing grows, we want to offer this same level of service to more people who need our expertise within the Eastern Suburbs; our aim is not to win everyone over but rather maintain our high level of service for the people who appreciate it.
