Are you asking about how much to pay, or how much to charge?

If you are asking about how much to charge this is not the place to do it.

your going to pay what the market will bare . somebody busy and the price will be up there catch somebody with time on there hands and you might get a deal

licensed electrician will charge more than a handyman

(might ask yourself why they aren't busy though )

Should I be concerned Hireing a licensed,insured electrician whom has a full time job and does their own stuff nights/weekends?

His prices are fair.

The more involved and difficult the job, the more you need to be concerned about the person you hire.
