PAT testing reviews

PAT testing reviews – all these reviews or testimonials have been posted by our clients on the internet; these are all genuine reviews. Over the years we have asked clients to leave reviews for us on Facebook, Linked In, Free Index and Google. Now, we only ask for Google reviews. 

At time of writing (December 2021) we have over 150 reviews on Google, making us the most reviewed PAT testing company in the North East of England; we may be the most reviewed in the Uk but so far we just haven’t had the time to have a proper check! 

We also have 125 reviews on Free Index, making us the 3rd most reviewed Portable Appliance Testing company in the UK. This rating is likely to go down, as we no longer request Free Index Reviews.

Great service it's the first time we have used the PAT test service but found them to be very flexible, arrived on time and willing to work weekend round our work load which is a massive help.

I enquired about organising a PAT test for my PA system, and I had a very prompt response that enabled me to quickly book a slot for an engineer to come out. The engineer who delivered the service (Jordan) was very professional and was lovely to speak to. He completed the job quickly and efficiently and also had my report and certificate to me by the end of the day. I can't recommend DRA enough, and will definitely use them again!

I cannot speak highly enough of the wonderful, professional service of DRA PAT Testing who recently checked over all of Seaham Sea Cadets equipment. We were over the moon with the conscientiousness and quality of service. Kyle and his colleague attending were superb, and extremely helpful, courteous and professional throughout - a glowing testament to a business to be both proud of and confident in. Thank you again, on behalf of all the Cadets, in helping us so much towards reopening and parading again; it is very much appreciated by all of us at the Unit. We look forward to booking DRA again next year and are very happy to recommend you to anyone.
