Pay peanuts and you get monkeys
The costs involved in PAT testing are well worth it considering the ramifications if you do not comply with Portable Appliance Testing Regulations. In order to find out exactly how much your PAT testing will cost, you will need to provide a PAT testing company with the number of portable appliances that you require testing.
Many companies charge around £1.00 to £2.00 for each appliance that is tested. Of course, the more portable appliances you have the higher your overall PAT testing prices will be. If you only have 10 small appliances that need to be tested, you can expect to pay a standard PAT testing callout cost.
The definition of a "Portable appliance" is defined as one that is "less than 18kg in mass and intended to be moved while in operation". Examples include kettles, toasters, vacuum cleaners and potentially any other item that can connect to a source of electricity. Handheld appliances such as hairdryers and drills come under portable appliances. Any computers, monitors, printers, kettles, leads, cables and other similar items should be tested. Extension leads and power cables require testing seperately and are classes as a single item.
If you want an accurate quote, be certain that you provide an accurate estimate of appliances. If you give a total of appliances that is more than what you have, you could be overcharged for these services. If you give a total that is under what you have, the company may leave without properly testing all of your equipment.
Finding a PAT testing service that fits into your budget can seem difficult. Most companies charge varying fees and it may seem completely impossible to find cheap PAT testing. While there are a number of PAT testing companies that will provide you with low rates, you should consider carefully who you select to perform your PAT testing.
There is an old saying that “you get what you pay for.” You should ensure that your cheap PAT testing means cheap in price only and not in service. You have to be certain that the person carrying out your PAT testing is deemed “competent.” They should have some level of experience or formal training. If the PAT testing you hire is too cheap, you may find them skimping on their job. This means that they may not perform testing properly which could make you non-compliant with regulations.
Choose a reputable company
When selecting a PAT Testing company, you have to be certain that you are hiring a qualified company or individual. Take some time to do a bit of research and comparison shopping. This ensures that you get a qualified and experienced tester but can also help you to get the testing services you need at a lower than average cost.
Portable Appliance Testing is not done only to satisfy Portable Appliance Testing Regulations. It should be done to ensure safety throughout your property and place of business. Choosing a cheap PAT testing company should not mean skimping on quality. You should be able to find the services that you need to comply with regulations while still helping to protect your budget a bit. A simple internet search for PAT Testing Middlesbrough should show you a number of PAT Testing companies and individuals that offer lower than average rates. If you pay peanuts, you get monkeys! Be careful who you choose. Don't face prosecution by trying to save a few pounds. It's just not worth it.
