PAT Testing Price

We price our PAT Testing service based on the time we predict the job to take. We are all paid by the hour, including travel time and fuel expenses so we take that into account, which is why there is a £25.00 initial fee. This covers those costs. If it takes longer than 45 minutes to get to you, that initial fee may be higher although it is rare that we charge more. 

We charge a per item rate of £1.00 because that allows us to make a good income whilst being able to give your workplace the time required to thoroughly inspect and test each appliance so that we can guarantee you that equipment we say is safe; is. 

Where we differ to others is that our prices are set to provide a high standard of service, rather than to entice you to pick us on price alone. Cheaper suppliers have to rush their work to make their money. 

They also charge you for materials or things you don’t need. 

  • We don’t charge you to replace plugs
  • We don’t charge you to replace fuses
  • We don’t do unnecessary socket testing
  • We don’t do unnecessary microwave emissions testing

We do guarantee you a good service, and safe equipment

If  you have less than 225 items we charge £1.00 per item; for every appliance over 225 we charge a discounted rate of 75p* per item. The combined total still allows us to provide our service at our standards. 

*the 75p discount is provided your equipment is standard equipment; that’s applies to most of our customers – the usual appliances we use at work like computers, kitchen appliances etc. used in offices, doctors surgeries, small businesses, schools, etc. 

If your equipment is all in industrial environments we will likely continue to charge £1.00 per item. Also if your equipment is non-standard, such as with 16amp (+) adaptors we may charge a higher per item rate.
