About Us

hello, from the mountain Man team!

Mountain Man Electrical was created by Benjamin, one of our qualified electricians, in Townsville in 2018. Benjamin began with a passion for growing a business in North Queensland; he brought a wide range of skills in commercial, new-builds and residential electrical work. Over the last 5 years he has sought out self-motivated and well-trained electricians to join the crew.

Today, the Mountain Man Electrical team strives to be the first choice in the industry for Townsville homeowners!

Where did you get the name Mountain Man Electrical?

It’s not uncommon for Townsville locals to enquire about how we got our name. The answer is anticlimactic… 

When Benjamin was first looking for a name, all the obvious choices were taken. He cast his eye out the window toward Mount Elliot National Park in the distance and recalled a television character from his youth. 

“How about Mountain Man Electrical?” he asked a table full of family and friends. 

“Why not?” they replied. 

And with the same swiftness with which he and the rest of the licensed electricians apply to their work today, he filled out the ABN details with this name. And we’ve not heard the end of it since!

“I have multiple electrical issues – it’s a mess! I don’t know where to start…”

- Concerned Townsville home owner

If you have wires tripping, safety concerns, or issues with your appliances we will get to the bottom of it. We work efficiently to understand the problem. In many cases we can work out your issues during a phone discussion. Oftentimes we request a photograph of your switchboard to give us an indication of the age of your system, the number of circuits run, and help us to make informed decisions about what may be required to fix your electrical problems.

We aim to arrive at your residence promptly and undertake the work in a fast and systematic method. Along the way we take a consultative approach; we keep you informed, explain your options and advise you on best practices to solve your problem.

We are an approachable and friendly team; happy to answer your questions, such as when to change your switchboard and what are the benefits of installing LED lights.

Each day we work in the homes of Townsville locals including those with families and elderly residents, so it’s important to us that our team make good house guests.

Townsville's top choice of Residential Electrician

Our company is focussed on these five priorities to ensure we remain an industry leader for residential electrical services:

#1 Focus on residential customers

Our company is built to serve our residential clientele and this is reflected in all our decision-making from the people that we hire to our logistical set up. Our base is located in a central position for easy access to the suburbs of Townsville and Thuringowa. We keep our vans stocked with high quality electrical parts and products most commonly needed in the home so that you don’t have to wait for us to source parts to fix your electrical problems. We have processes in place to ensure our friendly technicians always leave their job site neat and tidy upon completion.

#2 Prompt and punctual

We arrange your job quickly and fit you into our next available time slot. While some businesses may give priority to commercial clientele, we will schedule your work as soon as possible. Scheduling depends on the size of your job, the urgency of your problem, and the number of electricians we would need to efficiently complete the work.

#3 Great communication

We send you a text prior to arrival so that you can plan your day accordingly. We regularly ask customers for feedback after a job, this ensures we know that everything is completed to your satisfaction. You can reach us by phone, email, text and through our website – we always aim to be highly responsive.

#4 Knowledge of our region

Understanding our tropical climate is so important because of the impact that humidity, heat and wildlife can have on the efficacy of electrical components in the products we install. At Mountain Man Electrical we research and favour those products that hold up over time, such as smoke alarms that have a fine mesh to keep out insects and reduce false alarms and split system air con units that have better seals to prevent frogs destroying the circuit board.

#5 Excellent Warranty

Electrical products deteriorate quickly in our heat and humidity, which is why we believe it is important to install those with the best warranty available. Most of the electrical parts in our switchboard upgrade come with a lifetime warranty of 25 years, our LED oyster lights, LED high bay shed lights, LED downlights and switches all come with a 7 year warranty. Our service includes the removal and replacement of any of these parts that have faults within the warranty period. Our regular clientele can call on us if a product fails within the warranty period and we will handle the warranty and replacement process for you.

Mountain Man Electrical operates under ABN 78 641 467 914 our Contractor License No. 88209.
