Chris Ames, General Manager

These guys were recommended to us and they came in recently to do the PAT Testing. The service was first class and report very professionally presented in an easy to understand format. It is rare I give 5 stars in a review however in this case it is thoroughly deserved and would recommend DRA PAT Testing Limited to any organisation ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 

Efa Owens, Acquisition Manager

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. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 

Julie Dixon, Company Secretary

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! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 

Automatic Free Repairs

When you get electrical equipment tested you need to be sure that what needs doing is done, which is why we do repairs automatically. Some companies will flag up the need for repairs but not do them, leaving you with unsafe equipment, whilst others charge extortionate fees for simple jobs and basic equipment. 

If we come across the need to repair the existing plug, replace the plug, replace a fuse, or repair a damaged cable we do so automatically without any further charges being incurred by you – for free. 

  • Free repairs to the existing plug
  • Free replacement plugs (standard BS1363 type)
  • Free replacement fuses (3amp, 5amp, 13amp)
  • Free repairs to the existing cable and plug refitted/new supplied
  • In-scope repairs to the existing appliance such as tightening of screws and reattaching safety guards 

Free Plugs Supplied and Fitted

Plugs get damaged, that’s a fact of life – they’re built well, they’re robust (usually, when genuine) but now and again they get damaged – the plastic casing breaks which is why a lot of manufacturers have moved over to sealed rubber plugs; or the pins get bent. 

When this happens the plug needs replacing; we replace plugs for free. 

A plug costs us about 50p; we replace on average one for each job, so is there really any point charging for it? Not really. Some of those 50p per item companies though; they’ll charge you up to five pounds for a plug.

If we spot a damaged plug during the visual inspection we will replace it free of charge.

If however the plug can be repaired; we’ll repair it. Repairs including rewiring because some who was not a competent person has tried to repair it, tightening screws, etc. Do you know how to wire a plug?  

Industrial Adaptors

Industrial adaptors are different; they’re costly to buy (£5 to £20 pounds usually), and are difficult and time consuming to fit. Whilst we generally repair them automatically, if we have to replace them we will charge for the parts supplied. We tend not to carry these parts, apart from the odd 110v adaptor, so we’ll talk to you about the options available. Which may include us going for the parts, returning and fitting them or quoting to do it at a different date.
