Private Pole hero

With our level 2 qualifications, we know how to safely connect your power pole to the street’s network.

Private Pole

A private pole is used to supply electricity from the main power lines to your property’s switchboard without any service cables dangling dangerously across your front yard or another property’s boundary.

We specialise in private power pole installation, replacement and safety checks of both steel and timber power poles. We also conduct private pole inspections and private pole certification for telecommunication such as NBNCo, Telstra and more. All services stringently adhere to current Australian regulations and standards, keeping you and your family safe.

How do I know if I need to install a private power pole?

With private poles, you can have electricity wherever you want it on your property. Besides providing better safety and security, they can also eliminate electrical hazards. Other than providing better safety and security, they can also remove electrical hazards. Fires and electrocution can be triggered by cables that cross vegetation and fallen branches.

It is recommended to install a private pole if the service main cables from your house to the network pole are deemed unsafe or cross the boundary of your neighbour.

Effortlessly increase curb appeal with private poles

There are two main types of private power poles that can be installed on a property: galvanised steel and timber. Galvanised steel is submerged in a protective zinc coating and can then be painted to suit your home. For projects requiring high cables, hardwood timber is ideal for telecommunication and electrical installations.

Secure Power Supply
Installing a private pole ensures a secure and reliable power supply to your property. It provides a dedicated point of connection for electricity, minimising the risk of power disruptions caused by external factors such as tree damage, accidents, or maintenance work on nearby utility poles.
Flexibility in Power Distribution
A private pole offers flexibility in power distribution within your property. It allows for the installation of additional circuits, power outlets, or lighting fixtures without overloading the existing electrical infrastructure. This flexibility enables you to meet the evolving power demands of your home, whether it's for home offices, workshops, or outdoor living spaces.
Aesthetic Considerations
Private poles can be designed to blend seamlessly with the architectural style of your property. They can be customised to match your aesthetic preferences, ensuring a cohesive and visually appealing appearance. By eliminating the need for overhead lines or unsightly attachments, a private pole enhances the overall aesthetics of your property.
Distance from Utility Lines
If your property is located far from existing utility poles, a private pole becomes a practical solution. It allows for the efficient and cost-effective extension of power lines, ensuring electricity reaches your home without the need for excessive trenching or complex installations.
Increased Property Value
Installing a private pole adds value to your property. It demonstrates a reliable and independent power supply, which can be attractive to potential buyers or tenants. The convenience and flexibility offered by a private pole can make your property more desirable and set it apart from others in the market.

Frequently asked questions

Who is responsible for maintaining private poles?
If you decide to have a private power pole installed, it is important to remember that you are responsible for its maintenance as the property owner. The area around your private pole should be inspected regularly for any defects or threats. Storms and strong winds can damage poles, so be extra careful during these periods.
How do you maintain private poles?
It is common for power poles and power lines to be exposed to the external elements, which can cause structural damage. Trees and branches near power lines should be trimmed to prevent electronic shocks and bushfires.

To ensure that your private poles and service mains cable operate optimally, you must regularly inspect and maintain them. If you suspect something is wrong, schedule an appointment with one of our Level 2 electricians and let us fix it for you.

Have to say it's rare to come across any companies such as selectrical services these days. Their custom service is excellent and backed with prompt service. They would text you to inform when their electrician would arrive. When they promise something, they would keep their promise. We had really good experience having them to carry out electrical work.

They replaced our power board and main cables. Done as scheduled, all nice. I'm grateful they took old pole and powerboard and moved payment to more convenient day for us!

Emergency call out today, our switchboard started to smoke and our power had to be turned off. With temperatures over 35 and elderly parents it was extremely stressful. I can not speak highly enough of this company. Not only did they turn up within a few hours but the job was done promptly and efficiently. Thank you so much for your professional service !! I will highly recommend you!
