What is P.A.T?

Portable Appliance Testing (PAT) ensures that electrical items are safe to use. Some electrical faults can be found by looking but many can only be found by testing.

Visual examination is a part of the process because some types of electrical safety defect cannot be found by testing alone.

We can PAT test any number of items – with prices dependent on number of items and distance.

“I have recently completed the conversion of my home from a bungalow into a 2 storey house with cellars. The initial phase being an almost total demolition, revealing outdated electrics which were unsuitable for our future needs. Mark and Chris called as requested and as they had promised and surveyed the existing electrical work and the plans of the converted house for the future electrics. They proposed the work that would be required and gave us a price for the work as it stood at that time. Their first job was to make safe the current electrics whilst disconnecting some areas, because (probably inadvisably) I had decided to live in the house throughout.
In the event, MCB Electrical were required to call back on many occasions to complete small tasks prior to the final rewire. At no point did I feel that anything was too much trouble for them, and even when I called at short notice, they always made time, coming in the evenings and at weekends where necessary.
Eventually, we completed the work and first and second fix electrics were completed to our absolute satisfaction. Throughout the build, I must have had several hundred pounds worth of free advice, given willingly. I would describe them as active rather than passive and unsolicited offered many ‘nuggets’ of invaluable advice.
The finish was perfect and their attention to detail second to none. Despite the number of visits and telephone calls I made to them, their final bill was fully itemised and reflected the quote initially given to us.
They are a credit to the electrical trade, their work ethic is a pleasure to watch and the quality of their work is highly commended by us. I would have no hesitation in recommending MCB electrical to anyone requiring any form of electrical work.”

“Chris has looked after us here at the Inn at Whitewell for a number of years now and have always been reliable and punctual; I would recommend them to anybody and have done so.”

“MCB Electrical did work when I had a new kitchen fitted and I have used them again on another property when they did a full rewire for me, both jobs were done on time, at a very reasonable rate and I was very impressed with how they left both houses, they were spotless. Very professional.”

“We have used MCB for four years and in that time they have done quite a few jobs for us. We have always found them to be very reliable and competitive and their work is excellent, highly recommended.”
