    How Much Do Plumbers Charge For Emergency Calls?

    Woollahra 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 Woollahra 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.

    What Are Plumbing Emergencies?

    When you need emergency plumbing in Woollahra you don't have time to waste. A Woollahra plumbing emergency can be anything from a clogged drain, burst pipe or a roof leak for most residential emergency plumbing situations that people summon their plumber for. Our emergency Woollahra plumbers define a plumbing emergency as a plumbing-related issue that can cause damage to property or harm to the people dwelling in it. It's pretty simple if it is not causing harm to you or your property, it isn't an emergency and thus can wait till the following business day; we make it our duty to educate every client that calls and truly identify the severity and if it warrants an after-hours call out.

    It is essential to define what is classified as a genuine emergency. For example, a leaking tap is not classified as emergency plumbing, whilst a tap that won't shut off would classify as an emergency. It can't be stressed enough just how important it is that you always go through a reputable plumbing service for your emergency plumbing and other plumbing needs. A fully licensed and qualified plumbing service will carry out quality work, liaise with tenants, landlords, and property managers professionally.

    • 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.

    • With 25 years of collective experience in Woollahra 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.

    About Woollahra

    Woollahra is an affluent part of Sydney's Eastern Suburbs consisting of elegant Edwardian- and Victorian-style terraced houses. Development has been controlled here, maintaining the character of the neighborhood. The consulates of Germany, Russia, Poland, Turkey, and others have also found themselves a home in the neighborhood's residences.

    Though it's only a few blocks long, Queen Street is the main commercial thoroughfare in Woollahra. This tree-lined street has the feel of an English village but has a sophisticated selection of shops, restaurants, antique stores, art galleries, and what might be the sexiest butcher shop in Sydney, Victor Churchill, which feels more like a luxury retail store. Just down the street Bondi Junction has a massive shopping center for anything not found in Woollahra.
    You'll find a mix of families and professionals living here. And like many of the Eastern Suburbs, this is a popular place to live for the city's Jewish community. The liberal Temple Emanuel is within the neighborhood's borders and the Central Synagogue is next door in Bondi Junction.
