Don’t choose the cheapest bidder – it’s your responsibility

Within our industry, leading PAT companies will tell you plenty of horror stories that come from so called “cheap PAT Testing” providers who cut overheads by cutting corners and using cheap labour; be careful who you choose to inspect your appliances because if they do a bad job, and an accident occurs you are still responsible, not them.
