    How Much Do Plumbers Charge For Emergency Calls?

    Sydney Plumbing Emergencies often happen late at night, early in the morning or on a weekend/public holiday? These problems always seem to come at the worst possible time. For this reason, there are often plumbers who will take advantage and advertise rates that are often too good to be true in the hope you book them in and then, once locked in, jack the prices up, usually 2-5 times the regular rate.

    For all Sydney plumbing emergencies, we charge a flat fee between $250 - $350 + GST, which covers the after-hours call out to your door and will usually cover the minimum costs associated with making the property safe as this is our number one priority. Once onsite, you will never pay any extra rates for after-hours services. From midday to midnight, the rate you pay will stay the same as if the works were done during regular operating hours.

    To confirm an emergency booking, we require upfront payment paid over the phone by credit card. Rest assured, we do not save your details as this is entered directly through an EFTPOS terminal. Once the payment is processed, we can immediately email and send you a receipt of payment for your records.

    Now it is time to relax with more than 30 years of combined experience as a professional Sydney plumber. We have the expertise and technical know-how to resolve your issue promptly and efficiently, actually saving you money. Making us the most relied upon 24 hour plumber Sydney has to offer – and for a good reason.

    Why Choose Us As Your Local Eastern Suburbs Emergency Plumber?

    • When it comes to an emergency and you’re thinking of “plumbers near me”, it pays to call a plumber with experience in identifying the cause and effect of the issue immediately. For the team at proximity plumbing, it’s almost second nature knowing how and where to tackle the issue often without even being to site.

    • Our 24-hour 7-day service is a standard, as we want clients to know we can be relied upon when the time comes. Too often a plumber is called under stressful circumstances, but we aim to reduce this as much as possible with our reliability and professionalism.

    • When you call you are not connected to an automated answering machine service, you are speaking to one of your dedicated on-hand professionals. One of the reasons customers always return is our friendly nature, knowledge, passion, and integrity. We pride ourselves on our service and the relationships we build with our customers.

    • With 25 years of collective experience in Sydney works alone, there has not been a job we could not address, for example, a burst pipe or gas leak which is often one of the reasons we get a call. Many plumbers would rush out to get to your property without first attempting to assist you in finding your nearest isolation tap. This advice and assistance alone can ultimately save your hundreds if not thousands and dollar in damages and after-hours service calls.

    • Another common emergency call-out we receive is blocked or clogged drains which can be caused by something as simple as an excessive hair in your shower drain or as dramatic as a sudden surge in stormwater causing your pits and downpipes to overflow and roof to leak. Have you recently checked if the hair is caught inside your drains, 9/10 you can resolve the issue by pulling apart your waste connection beneath?

    • We’re the plumber Sydney residents trust for over 10 years, our local plumbers have a competitive advantage as we can guarantee 30’mins response times and legitimately check your issues with a $0 call out. If you’re looking for a local Sydney plumber based within the eastern suburbs, why not call an actual local, it only makes sense right? I hope after using us, you’re a client for life and the next time you think of an emergency plumber eastern suburb you think of us.

    Tenants Getting Urgent Repairs Done

    As we often get inundated with distressed tenants, we felt the need to include this section; we cannot stress enough that it's your priority to make all attempts to contact your Property Manager and designated plumber before calling us after hours. If you have no other choice, please know we are delighted to assist, but we will always have to take a security deposit over the phone before dispatching a plumber near you.

    If the landlord/agent cannot be contacted or is unwilling to do any urgent repairs, or if they are taking too long to do them, you can arrange for the repairs to be done. Do not pay any more than $1,000 or you may not get your money back – the landlord is only required to pay you for any reasonable costs up to $1,000. They are obliged to pay within 14 days of your notice.

    You must be able to show that:
    • the problem was not your fault.
    • you made a 'reasonable' attempt to contact the landlord/agent.
    • you gave them a 'reasonable' chance to do the repairs.
    • the repairs were carried out by a repair person named in your tenancy agreement (if possible) or by a licensed or qualified tradesperson.

    You must give the landlord/agent written notice about the repairs, costs and copies of receipts. If the landlord does not pay, apply to the Tribunal within three months from the end of that 14 days for an order.

    We know when you have a flooding home you just want someone to attend the site as soon as they can to fix the Sydney issue, but you need to remember to not fall into the trap of plumbers with bad reputations. Follow our 5 steps to avoid a bad plumber when searching for an emergency plumber or emergency blocked drain:

    • 1

      Don’t fall for ‘Ads’ promoting they are an emergency plumber on the top of google search offering ridiculously cheap prices to get your attention.

    • 2

      Check their Google reviews & ensure they are a reputable company that is licensed & insured for plumbing.

    • 3

      Let’s face it we know emergencies can be costly but don’t fall for plumbers who promise you a $0 call out after hours. In our experience, you should question any plumber who doesn’t have an emergency call-out fee.
