Question DetailsAsked on 12/20/2014

I need an electrician, not an electrical company, to connect the wires leading to my security gate and lamp post.

I live near Anthony's Restaurant in Gig Harbor. The wires needing to be connected are all in an electric access box (12" x 17") in the ground of my yard. The wires needing to be connected in the access box go to the security gate and the lamp post. The wires are 10 gauge THHN stranded, except for the ground wire which is 12 gauge THHN stranded for some reason.

The wiring has been inspected and approved.

The lamp post needs to have a disconnect switch placed on an Arlington Gard-N-Post (which I have). On the opposite side of the Gard-N-Post, I need a GFI receptacle with cover installed (which I have).

I also have the lamp that needs to be placed on top of the lamp post and wired.

May need to bring some extra wire.

Thank you.

Sorry - you cannot post your job on AL and have vendors offer their services, except through a quick-job app running off cell phones.

What you need to do it Search the List under Electrical and choose a couple with good reviews to come give you a bid - or just choose one to just come and do it on hourly rate - sounds like a pretty minimal job if your wires are all correctly run in conduit already, which presumably it is if inspectedc and approved.

Sounds to me like a simple maybe 1 hour or so of work - maybe a bit more depending on how easily the components and light head and such go in.
