We have over 500 regular clients and more 5-Star reviews on Google than any other local PAT testing company because we actually care about your safety – for us the importance of our work is to give you peace of mind that your equipment is safe; not how many stickers we can put on.

PAT testing Durham and the North East

The best PAT testing price would include FREE remedial repairs, replacement plugs and fuses – which is what we do. Also we offer fixed prices so you don’t get the shock when the bill comes in like you do with per item rates. 

Our professional, reliable PAT testing service is carried out by experienced engineers who have been checked by CHAS, Durham Police and DBS. We use the quickest industry leading, data storing machines available to ensure the service you get and the report you receive is the best possible. All our records are securely stored and can be re-issued to you for free if you lose your copy. 

Our service is carried out efficiently, quickly and using tried and tested methods that guarantee minimal disruption to your business. To make the process even slicker in the future we carry out cable sorting and re-organising as we go, to create an efficient, safer working environment. 

The price for testing 110 volt and 230 volt equipment is the same, and we can also test 3-phase and fixed appliances. We carry out a through formal visual inspection on EVERY appliance, as well as carrying out our tests; many cheap PAT testing companies skip the visual inspection (which is actually the most important part) to save time. 

Minor repairs, replacement plugs and fuses are fixed automatically, FREE of charge.

PAT testing for Landlords

Landlords PAT testing is a best practice process; there is no official legal requirement to do it, but it makes a lot of sense if you do. For example, if an appliance develops a fault and the tenant gets a shock, an investigation will want to know if you have done “everything reasonably practicable” to ensure the tenant was safe. 

A PAT test Certificate would show that testing has been carried out, and the appliance was deemed safe, so you did do what you needed to. 

In Co. Durham, landlords are required to make sure electrical equipment provided as part of a tenancy agreement maintains safety standards, so regular PAT testing in rented properties is recommended. 

We are able to test both the portable appliances and the integrated equipment such as white goods and cookers; where-as some PAT testers with less electrical training cannot; so you get a higher standard of service. 

We are DBS and Police checked, so you can leave us to deal with your tenant directly, give us keys etc to save you the bother. 

ALL minor repairs (such as replacing defective plugs and fuses) will be fixed on the spot and FREE of charge. 

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 

Always had excellent service from Richard, he’s looked after our rental properties for years now, and always turns up on time and does a great job. Highly recommend him!
