PAT Testing Prices – a Guide

PAT testing prices vary for all kinds of reasons. Just like any other business, there are cheaper suppliers and more expensive options, but like when buying anything, you get what you pay for. Our prices are actually somewhere in the middle, whilst our standards are up towards the top end.

We have high standards, and we do a good job; we give you peace of mind that your equipment is safe, we do repairs when necessary, keep you informed and provide you with the necessary paperwork.

Our prices include everything a price should include such as our overheads, travel cost and so on, and allow us to do a good job without having to rush.

The price we charge varies based on the environment we’ll be working in, for example a school during the holidays or an office when people aren’t working, is going to cost a lot less than a dirty building site!

We do offer guide prices (below) based on normal workplaces like offices, and shops, and you can book us at these prices.

If however, your environment is a bit different, or you just want a personal price we recommend you contact us for a personal PAT testing price, or to arrange a site survey in advance of us quoting.

Whenever we quote, whatever the price it always includes:

  • Remedial repairs to the plug and cable
  • Replacement ’13a’ plugs and fuses
  • Reminders and guidance for retests, and any other help you need
  • A fully itemised PAT Testing Certificate Report
Free Remedial Repairs
Free Replacement Plugs
Free Replacement Fuses
Prompt PAT Test Certificates
Guidance for retest periods
Timely Retest Reminders

Our PAT Testing Prices

Tyne and Wear £45.00 initial fee

Our Pat testing price starts at just £45.00 for all jobs in Tyne and Wear (or within 30 mins drive of NE28), which includes the first 20 items to test. This fee covers our the costs of our engineers coming to your location to carry out the testing.

  • 30 – 60 mins travel £75.00 initial including 40 items
  • Discounts available if you are based in North Tyneside

PAT testing rates per item

Our PAT testing prices per item start at just £1.00 for normal plugs; with discounts applied for over 200 items, dependent on how many you have and the job specification.

Prices vary, dependent on the job – sometimes you could be quoted more or less per item for less than 200, so it’s always best to contact us for a personal price.

However, if you want to save yourself the bother, complete our Appointment Booking Form and we’ll book you in for our soonest appointment at the standard rate.

Plugs and fuses replaced for free

Remedial repairs to ’13a’ plugs, and their leads will be done free of charge including rewires of the plug. Replacing a part of the plug, the full plug or the fuse will be done free of charge. If the full lead needs replacing the cost will be calculated and you will be quoted for the work, which may be done immediately or at a later date, at the engineers discretion. If we supply a plug to an appliance that did not have a plug, you will be charged £2.50 for the plug.

Microwave Emissions Testing

In addition to the PAT test we check microwave ovens for emissions leakage, and function and internal defects, at just £5.00 per oven.

PAT testing Certificate Reports

We issue your fully itemised PAT Testing Certificate Report as a PDF document, by email, by the end of the week in which the job was done. If you need your certificate quicker than that, it can be issued the same day for an extra £10.00 charge. Multiple certificates, asset registers and excel records are all available on request; additional charges may be applied.

Guidance on retests & reminders

We can help you set up your PAT Testing frequency on risk based retest periods, and will also send you reminders when next tests are due.

110v Appliances

Inspection and testing of 110v plugs takes longer and usually involves time consuming repairs, so we charge £1.50 per item to test these; if we have to repair 110v items there is an additional £1.50 per repair charged. If the plug needs replacing it will be supplied and fitted for £9.99 – it will not be done automatically; our engineer will check before replacing a plug.

Out of hours options

We can work evenings, weekends and overnight if required; you will need to contact us for a personal price for this.

Fixed Appliance Testing

If we come across any appliances that used to have a plug, but are now ‘hard wired’ we will inspect them and test them for earth continuity. To do a full test the power needs isolating so you may want to do this out of hours. We will discuss your options when on site. The cost of this is £40.00 per hour.

How you can save money on your PAT testing

There are two easy ways you can save money on your PAT testing… 

Risk Based PAT: If you’re getting an inspection done every year, you may be getting tested too often. When did you last risk assess your workplace equipment? We can do this for you if you like. Move your PAT testing from your current supplier to us and not only will we inspect and test your equipment, but we will put it on a risk based retest period, which will save you money. Consider this; if you get all your office tested (e.g. 500 items) every year now at 75p per item you’re paying £375.00 each year which sounds like a bargain. But what if you didn’t have to do this? Pay us £1.25 per item and we’ll put your equipment on a risk based retest period, approved by the HSE PAT Testing guide, for example, every 3 years. That’s a payment of £625.00 once, saving you £500.00. Not only are you saving money, but you’re saving on business disruption too. Think about it.

Hourly Rates: Another way to save money, is to move away from ‘per item’ rates, and pay by the hour or a fixed price for the job. Let’s say we quote you for a 200 item job in an office; we expect this to take around 5-6 hours to complete. That’s £195.00 based on time. In fact when we did the job, we actually did 270 items because you didn’t take power leads into account; but the job still got done inside 6 hours, so you still paid the quoted amount. If you’d gone with a per item rate of £1 per item you’d be expecting to pay £200.00, but end up being invoiced for £270.00. Paying by the hour or agreeing a fixed price for the job will save you money.

DRA were professional from the first contact. They fixed a time and date with my tenants to complete the PAT test and kept me informed. They turned up on time and left the flat tidy and the tenants happy. I was contacted to advise that everything was completed and the invoice was sent promptly, as requested.As a landlord, it's important that my tenants have minimum disruption to their lives, so I was delighted with the service provided and will definitely by using DRA again.

As always, an excellent and reliable service. Due to covid19 guidelines we only had certain times available but Richard was more than accommodating and offered an alternative suggestion which meant we were able to get the whole school PAT tested, which we are so grateful for. Thank you!

Thank you so much DRA PAT Testing. The process to book testing, was very easy, and Richard could fit in the exact time frame we had. The tester had spare parts and was very professional and efficient, I gave him a quick tour of the building, and the testing was done promptly. Great value, and respectful of covid guidelines. I would highly recommend and we will be using DRA Testing in a years time.

Thank you so much Richard! Richard arranged and kindly did PAT Testing for all the equipment in my clinic, he attended perfectly on time, made sure it's arranged around the time I can be free. He even had spare parts and just changed them for me straightaway. He is very genuine, professional and kind. Great value in compare with other companies and very trustworthy. I've already asked him to book me in for my next PAT Testing and I definitely recommend him.

Arrange to get your PAT testing done

If you’re happy with the prices quoted above and want to book you PAT testing to be done, contact us by completing this form. We’ll respond with a time and date for our next available suitable appointment.

How long does PAT testing take?

On average we expect to test 25 to 30 items per hour; when conditions are good we may do more. In an average day at one location we’d expect to test 200 to 250 items.

If you choose a day rate, if conditions are good (like you’re office based), we may be able to test 250 items in the day – if you’re paying per item you’d pay more than you would paying day rate.

Our PAT testing prices – what does PAT Testing cost?

Our PAT Testing price is fair and competitive, slightly higher than average but we think its worth you paying that bit extra now, to save money and problems later.

By paying a little bit more than some our cheaper rivals you get a quality service; we don’t rush our work, taking care to check every appliance thoroughly and carry out necessary repairs automatically. Rewiring of plugs for example is completely free – others charge for that.

If we have to replace plugs or fuses we also do that for free; some competitors offer a lower per item rate but charge ridiculous hidden fees to change a plug; one local rival charges £10.00 to replace a plug (its in their terms and conditions, not clearly obvious on quotes, and many get stung by it). By doing free plug replacements, we don’t waste plugs, only changing a plug if it is really necessary. We carry spare parts so if a plug can be repaired rather than fully replaced that is what we will do.

If your PAT tester cuts corners or rushes their work, it leads to issues being found later – damage gets missed, and then what’s the point in getting the job done? When it is your responsibility if there is an accident at work, you want to be sure that won’t happen. Our attention to detail and quality assurance gives our clients peace of mind.

Our PAT Testing Prices – what does PAT Testing cost?

When choosing a PAT testing company, you need to be sure the company you pick will provide you with a quality service, when you work with us you get the peace of mind that your equipment is safe to continue using, all the paperwork necessary to prove compliance and the benefit of working with a company that cares. We’re a small business in North Tyneside, a team of 4 professionals who are friendly and considerate and work with clients long term.

Now whatever we say here, we understand, you may not believe us, so see what our clients say in their reviews – we ask clients to review us on Google because Google reviews can’t be faked. We’re proud of all the reviews we receive.

As a business we have been trading since 2009 and have had pretty much the same pricing structure ever since; we guarantee you if you accept our price, it will not rise for at least 3 years – in most cases it never rises!

We can also offer you the benefit of guidance on retest periods – if it doesn’t need annual PAT testing, why do it? Not only do you have to ensure the PAT testing prices are right for you, but the PAT testing frequency has to be appropriate too.

Unlike some cheaper companies, we don’t rush on the job, we do thorough visual inspections on every appliance, and carry out repairs automatically, usually without additional costs to you.

We inspect and test each mains powered part of the appliance and also can do additional microwave emissions tests. But we don’t waste your money doing socket tests that are not necessary. We also are partnered with an electrical testing company to offer you discounts on mains wiring inspections (EICR).

On completion of the inspection every client is issued with an itemised PAT Testing Certificate Report which includes all the information you need to ensure you comply with current workplace Health and Safety regulations, which we send to you by email as an attached PDF document, by the end of the week – same day certificates are available on request (terms apply).
