As a company whose main role is to specialise in portable appliance testing (PAT Testing), we cover a very wide area from our base in Milton Keynes. We have been known to work in London but mainly we cover Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire, Berkshire, Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire and Northamptonshire …
A Weekend Of PAT Testing In Hampshire
However, this weekend sees us travelling a little further afield and PAT Testing in Hampshire. This is a new client who I have been trying to snare for a number of years. Finally, they have given in as we have proved that we are capable of providing the service that they require, at a price that they feel is reasonable.
I know that my confirmed price is a little higher than they have been paying in the past, but having made a couple of pre PAT Test site inspections, I have been able to show that the previous company had missed some visible repairs and left numerous appliances in a potentially dangerous state.
I think the first shock to the client was being shown a fridge cable that was hanging out of the plug, (spotted at 100 yards) making their next statement a little concerning, “that appliance was recently tested and passed. More to the point, how did you see it at such a distance?” I tell you, if I could bottle experience and sell it I would be sitting in the sun with a large drink for the next month or so!
I guess this weekend is a trial to prove that we are the professional PAT Testers that we strive to be. So even though there is a bit of travel involved, I’m hoping that once we have completed the job, we might even be offered their sister office in good old Milton Keynes – that wonderful city of roundabouts and concrete cows.
Until next time …If you’d like to work with a professional firm of PAT Testers to ensure your office equipment and appliances are safe to use, call me on 0330 6600264 or click here to ping over an email and I’ll get right back to you.There is also an additional plus point to the travelling. My sister-in-law lives not too far from this new client, so I can drop the wife off, giving them the opportunity to catch up for the day. That’ll definitely put me in the good books and as she has offered to cook Sunday lunch for us the bonus is that there’s no cooking for me this weekend!
