Professional & reliable electrical solutions


With over 32 years experience in the electrical contractor trade (including 10 years in NZ, South Africa and the USA), Rob Buchanan set up Rob Buchanan Electrical in 2002.

Having established an excellent reputation for providing high quality electrical solutions, Rob Buchanan Electrical now services industrial, commercial and residential locations across Brisbane’s Western Suburbs, CBD, South East Queensland and overseas for large scale projects.

We currently employ 6 electricians and 4 apprentices and we are proud to have trained 20 apprentices so far. We use a fully computerised appointment booking and field messaging system to accurately arrange and track our services. This allows us to be prompt, reliable and “on the job” when we say we will be.

We use a quality assurance system which lets us constantly evaluate and improve our customer service. Most of our custom is repeat business.

Our Team consists of friendly, trusted and long-term employees. They are encouraged to participate in ongoing skill development and training to ensure their knowledge and compliancy is up to date. Our uniformed staff will attend your site in a vehicle displaying the Rob Buchanan Electrical name.

Please meet some of our team. You will see our electricians regularly around Brisbane’s Western Suburbs, Brisbane CBD, all across South East Queensland and even overseas.


At Rob Buchanan Electrical, safety is our game and we strive to always be on top of legislation, licensing and compliance changes.

The Electrical Safety Act 2002 states that an electrical contractor license is required for businesses carrying out electrical work for others. Only an electrical contractor can do electrical safety work in your home – unlicensed work is unlawful and can be dangerous.

As a licensed electrician, our team consists of experienced electrical contractors who complete stringent annual electrical safety and quality audits, adhere to a code of ethics, and offer customers a 12-month guarantee on their work.

Our licensing details are as follows:-

  • QLD Electrical License Number: 53471

Just a quick email to let you know how impressed I was with Leon and Kieran. At all times they were punctual, polite and professional. They worked tirelessly throughout the installation process, notwithstanding the time out to answer my endless questions. Also Leon is to be commended for his personable management style with Kieran.
