We are very impressed with your service, everything very professional and as you promised. As a small business we find it hard to find reliable companies to deal with, it makes a refreshing change to come across a company with similar ideals to us  – a fair job at a fair price with pleasant employees and proper paperwork! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Excellent, friendly and efficient service. We have a lot of staff that work flexibly and Richard was happy to pop back at a later date to test their equipment which we hadn’t initially mentioned. Would recommend DRA to any organisation that needs appliance testing carried out. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

We understand the importance of discretion when you have guests, which is why we do our best to work with you to ensure things run smoothly. 

Most Bed & Breakfasts, holiday homes, caravans, etc. tend not to have a lot of electrical items to test, and they are generally standard low risk the PAT testing can be done relatively quickly for a low fixed price. 

Larger sites like hotels, spas, pubs and clubs may have more appliances, and they will be more spread out so the job is going to take longer but we will work with you to ensure you get the best service possible at the right price. 

We have learnt that PAT testing in hotels needs to be carefully managed as access is not always easy and is often restricted dependent on guests and when they are in or out but we find that by working with the hotel management we can cope with this fairly easy. The added benefit for us is we’re not a one-man-band, there are 3 of us, so by us all doing the job we can get through it fairly quickly. 

We recently completed a 144 bedroom hotel in 4 days (February 2020), with no disruption to guests.

How long does it take to PAT Test?

We are experienced engineers working at a high standard, so we expect to achieve between 20 and 50 items per hour depending on the environment and logistics of the job; usually around 30 is about average. This equates to around 200-300 per day. 

What does PAT testing cost?

As every job is different we recommend a site visit before starting; we recommend you consider a per item rate but you may prefer our hourly rate instead. 

We usually offer a set rate per item after an initial fee to cover our costs, but it can be more cost effective to consider our hourly rate. Check out our PAT testing prices for more information. 

We carry out PAT Testing in hotels and other accommodation services

We are also able to carry out specialist commercial use Microwave Oven testing including checking for emissions leakage, power and temperature rise, to ensure cooking of food is going to be carried out correctly, reducing the risk of under-cooked food.
