In the light of our recent survey on hourly rates we thought this information about the rates of other tradie prices would be of interest.
We are aware that we are not comparing apples with apples regarding industries and this survey by ServiceSeeking.com.au relates to Queensland only. So, what can you expect to pay for a tradie in Queensland?
Plumbers sit at the top of the pack in Queensland, at $79.20 per hour, despite a quarterly price drop of 6.8 per cent.
Electricians are the next most expensive at $74.10 per hour.
Builders have seen a dramatic year-on-year increase of 27 per cent, increasing their rate to $68.30 per hour.
“Most Queensland tradies are benefitting from an increase in renovation activity,” says ServiceSeeking.com.au CEO Jeremy Levitt.
Not all tradies are reaping the benefits, however. Landscapers, at $56.90 per hour, have seen a quarterly price drop of 29.8 per cent.
Tilers, likewise, have seen a quarterly drop of 7.7 per cent, down to $55.10 per hour.
Hourly rates are “gross” rates and aside from including the cost of labour, also cover the cost of running the business including insurance, tools, work vehicles, insurance and superannuation.
The prices were derived by comparing a sample of 52,000 quotes submitted during the FY17 Q4 through ServiceSeeking.com.au, the website for getting any job done.
