Are you looking for a local and reliable electrician in the Greater Manchester, Merseyside, Cheshire and Lancashire area?
K&L Electrical can offer PAT testing (portable appliance testing) services in the Manchester, Liverpool, Warrington and St Helens all around the North West area providing support from letting agents to landlords and full commercial installations.
We also offer PAT Testing for shops, businesses, council and public sector organisations, rented property and residential care homes.
K&L also carry out electrical PAT testing for insurance companies and for licensing purposes (including public entertainment licences) for theatres, pubs, clubs and hotels.
Portable Appliance Testing (PAT) is the electrical safety testing of portable electrical equipment. It consists of a visual inspection and various electrical tests carried out using electrical safety testing equipment.
Appliances that have passed are deemed to be safe to use until the next test date. A sticker is attached to the equipment (see example to the right) indicating a pass or fail and the next applicable test date.
The intervals between PAT testing are normally 12 months but in some cases they can be 24 months between PAT testing depending on the environment.
The minimum charge for PAT testing is £50.00 (which covers the PAT testing of up to 20 items) – K&L charge on a scale that works out cheaper the more appliances that are tested:
• 21 to 100 items is charged at £1.50 per item PAT tested
• 101 to 250 items is charged at £1.30 per item PAT tested
• 250 items or more is charged at £1.00 per item PAT tested
New plugs fitted onto an electrical appliance is charged at £2.00 each
Asset Tracking Service – Make / Model / Serial Number/ Location – an additional £1 per item tested.
Antibacterial cleansing wipes over each item tested (suitable for computers, monitors, printers, cash tills or any handheld portable appliance including phones etc.) – an additional £1 per item that is PAT tested.
You could also have a periodic inspection report / electrical condition report done at the same time as the PAT testing. A periodic inspection report will reveal if any circuits or electrical equipment are being overloaded, and locate any potential electrical shock risks.
Kevin, Lee and their team did a full re wire of our house in August 2015. Their team of 5 were very efficient and complete the job within 3 days. Their work was of a high standard and the price was very reasonable. All of the team were polite and helpful, fully explained what they would do and how they would do it with as minimal disruption to us as a family as possible! We would highly recommend their team!Jennie, Stretford
While browsing the web looking for a company to rewire our three bedroom semi with conservatory, I came across K&L Electrical (electrician2hire), run by Kevin and Lee. The site claims a full rewire for a three bedroom semi in 3 to 4 days (unoccupied). I arranged for a quote and they came to Denton in Manchester within 2 days (Friday afternoon 23 August). I had the quote from Lee (which was a lot less than I was expecting) by Thursday 29 August. Lee contacted me on 2 September and said they could start the job on Tuesday 10 September. As good as their word the job was completed in 4 days and that was with us still occupying the property! Having your house rewired whilst living in it is not something you'd volunteer for but the team made the job bearable. Then team did a great job cleaning up every day and they was very pleasant and friendly. We would recommend this company to anyone.Simon Marsden, Denton
K & L worked on my property in December 2012 so i could make it safe to rent out, and again on a heating problem in February 2013. Lee and Kev were both friendly and helpful, they gave full explanations of everything they were doing in a way the lay person could understand. I would wholeheartedly recommend K&L to anyone – they were professional and considerate, taking good care of the property and they worked long and hard to ensure that the project completed on time. They also gave recommendations of good suppliers and provided clear billing information that demonstrated value for money. I will always use them now for any future projects. Thanks Lee and Kev for providing fantastic service.Gilli Bruce, Warrington
Me and my wife contacted lee, regarding doing some electrical work prior to our fitted kitchen being installed, he arrived on time, he and his team we very clean, tidy, and worked alongside other tradesmen to complete our dream kitchen. Any questions we asked were answered and explained fully, we found him very approachable, friendly, and most importantly, he quoted a very good price, and stuck to that price. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone considering any kind of electrical work in their homes. And we will definitely be using them again in the future. Great job guys.Stephen And Stephanie, Wigan
