I have known Richard since he set up and developed our Seaham Harbour website some 8 years ago. He managed the website... for a number of years before he trained me and another member of our U3A to manage it ourselves. I’m pleased to say he still has overall control and we can always contact him if we encounter any problems. We haven’t had many problems but when we do Richard is very helpful and approachable, taking on the problem if we can’t solve it out ourselves.info@seahamharbourU3Aread more

We came across DRA last year having been recommended to use them for our office PAT testing. We obtained a number of... quotes and DRA were the most competitive. They duly completed the work. Found their service exemplary. We were duly contacted by Richard this year 4 weeks ahead of our renewal date to remind us that the PAT testing was due for renewal. We had no hesitation in asking his firm to complete the work. They have been out and we are compliant for another 12 months. They provide a great service and would highly recommend. They politely remind you when the testing is due for renewal so you are always protected.read more

I used DRA PAT testing to test all of my professional audio equipment, I was attracted by the price and the excellent... reviews I had heard from many others in my field. He was highly competitive on price, he arrived and showed an amazing amount of customer service compared to others I had used previously, he was more than happy to offer free advice and went above and beyond what i have had before with other companies, such as explaining correct fuse ratings, proper earthing etc. I have already booked him for next year and will certainly be recommending him to all my friends and associates.read more
