Choosing a PAT Testing Service

November 05, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 153

Any business owner or landlord taking the briefest of looks on the web today will find that PAT testing services seem to have multiplied like never before and are now on the market in record-numbers. Of course, the good news that comes with all this is the way in which it has never been easier to find a PAT tester in a matter of seconds and book a package at short-notice – much to the delight of thousands. On the other hand however, the downside is that it has become more difficult than ever before to take the word or the website of a testing service at face value, given the fact that each and every one will no doubt be claiming to be the best.

So, how to go about choosing a PAT testing service guaranteed to fit the bill?

In truth it really is only a matter of basic common sense mixed with a little proactive snooping, as when making the effort to read between the lines it quickly becomes clear just which services are and are not up to the task at hand.

For example, one of the most important checks should be that of how long the testing service has been in the business. The reason for this is the way in which it is all-too simple for any apparent “expert” to build a website overnight and begin tinkering with PAT, but it is another thing altogether to run a successful PAT business for years, even decades. As such, a good rule of thumb is to remember that establishment and background in the industry is hard to beat.

Next comes the package prices on offer as if it seems as though one provider seems to be offering its services for about 75% cheaper than the rest of the market, chances are this will be reflected in the quality. Poor quality PAT testing is about as much use as no PAT testing at all, therefore be sure never to cut corners in favor of what seems like a bargain.

Finally comes the equipment they use as when it comes to PAT testing supplies, there have been some considerable advancements made over recent years. As such, those using the latest fluke 1653 multifunction tester or anything close to the technology of the Fluke 1653 are 100% guaranteed to be able to carry out a better job than those with testers dating back to the 70s – simple common sense.
