Parts and materials - if the electrician has the parts in their van, or if they need to pick up something from an electrical store, you will be charged for what's needed. There may be a mark-up as well.
Travel cost (this can be factored into the labour charge) - if the electrician charges travel costs, this is usually charged from the time the electrician leaves for your home, to when they arrive back at their base after the job. This will also include the time it takes to visit an electrical store to get any parts.
