How Much Will It Cost??
If you are currently paying more than £2.00 Per Appliance you
are paying too much !!
We believe that no two business's are alike and each has
its own needs and requirements. Likewise no two tests would
be alike as depending on the situation and environment that
the appliance is used in
testing may be required more or less frequently for a
similar item being used in a different company.
Therefore we offer a totally flexible pricing structure to enable us to
produce what we believe to be a competitive and efficient service. All prices
and or charges are agreed before any testing schedule is commenced with any
prospective client. Details of this will be provided in writing to ensure that
there are no hidden charges or "Extra's" as you may find are charged by some of
our competitors. Neither do we charge a premium for out of hours testing
For most small business's we find that one
of our "All-inclusive" PAT testing solutions will meet their requirements. Costs
for this can typically be as low as £40 - £50 per year to cover all of your
electrical appliances. Compare this to the costs that can be incurred following
an incident where PAT testing had not been part of a companies Health & Safety
Policy and you can see that this is a very worthwhile solution. Indeed many
Business insurance providers are now insisting that PAT testing is carried out
as part of their terms of cover. It is well worth checking this as all to often
the small print of a policy can be overlooked.
Testing for Free
for small Business Owners.
Due to the success of this offer we are delighted to be able
to continue it for the future throughout 2008. Quite simply this is a way for
the smaller business owner / operator to save from 10 - 100% of their Test or
Re-Test Fees. Please contact us for further details.
For the larger business we are able to offer further
considerable discounts on the overall testing costs due to the normally higher
number of appliances found at each of your business locations. An example is
that a per item basis cost can be as low as £1.20 per unit
or in some
cases less if you have a very large number of items.
We can then maintain a dynamic and flexible approach to grow
with you as your Business grows. Additional appliances can be added as and when
required and charged individually or if there is a significant change due to
expansion or otherwise we are happy to re evaluate your current schedule at
anytime to ensure that we continue to be able to provide you with a cost
effective, efficient and competent service.

PAT Testing need not be
not be an expensive process - we can work with you to assess your requirements
normally through a risk assessment process. This information can then be used
together with the IEE's recommendations for the
inspection and testing of in-service electrical
to ensure that equipment in higher risk areas is tested more frequently than
appliances that would be considered to be in a low risk situation. This is a far
better approach than simply adopting the "test it all once a year" philosophy!
and not surprisingly is normally a more cost effective method too.
There are no hidden extra charges or costs in
our pricing structure. Prior to commencing any programme of inspection and
testing all cost will be discussed and fully explained with any prospective
client. We will only undertake any work that has been agreed by both parties in
We do not charge extra or any form of premium
for "Out of Hours" testing, rather, where ever required or preferred, we welcome
this as it can dramatically speed up the whole inspection and testing process
for our clients which helps to keep any disruption or impact to an absolute
In normal circumstances we do not charge a fee
Want to test your own
decide after reading this that financially it would be better to carry out your
own testing in-house. Indeed many organisations save money by adopting this
approach. As with all items of this nature this can prove to be very successful
or possibly can also be doomed to failure.
deciding to do this however, remember that you will have to appoint and train a
person carrying out the testing and they must continue to do so at the
frequencies that are identified. They will need access to a portable appliance
tester, again this must also be periodically checked to ensure that it continues
to be 100% accurate. They will need to have access as and when required to a
wide selection of spare plugs and fuses etc. You will need to assess the
likely impact of having one of your employees concentrating a considerable
period of time away from their normal duties and also remember that a specialist
pat engineer may be considerably faster than a member of your team who has been
drafted in to do the work.
The main problem that
most companies find when deciding to adopt their own testing is that the
designated employee who is appointed to carry out the testing always needs to be
available as and when dictated by the initial assessment of equipment. In
practice this can be problematic as other tasks and duties in the normal
day-to-day running of the business also have to be taken into account as well as
other things such as annual leave etc. This can often lead to schedules not
being adhered to. Don't forget that even if the employee leaves your employment
you still have the same responsibility to ensure that the inspection and testing
identified is carried out and thus the whole process of appointing and training
will start again...
If you feel that testing "In-House" is for you then we can
offer a consultancy service to help you choose the correct structure to adopt
and work with you to ensure that your testing schedule meets with all relevant
Whichever method you decide upon
be an expensive process if not performed correctly - but we can work with you to keep the costs under
control. However, if you do need to carry out testing but then decide not to because
of cost, this would not carry much favour with the authorities or legal system
should an incident occur.
