Looking for an electrician to carry out portable appliance testing? Welcome to the Handy Squad.

Are you looking for a London electrician to examine electrical appliances at your office to ensure that they are safe to use? The Handy Squad has a highly-experienced team ready to carry out any PAT tests you might require. We cover the whole of London, from Wimbledon to Ealing, from Richmond to Canary Wharf in our unmissable yellow scooters ready to help.

Our highly-experienced electricians in London are able to examine your portable appliances, including kettles, laptop cables, mobile phones chargers, toaster,portable fans, hoovers, audio-visual hardware, desktop printers, among other appliances you might have.

Generally, larger electrical appliances such as dishwashers, fridge-freezers, electric hobs and electric ovens are not included in a PAT as by definition are not portable! To book a PAT, give our electricians a call on 0800-0-12-12-12 or request a quote by filling out our online form.

Even though PAT testing isn’t compulsory to conduct, current legislation states that businesses must maintain electrical equipment in safe condition. Carrying out portable appliance tests is the perfect way to check if electrical appliances and equipment are safe to use in the workplace, preventing any electrical accidents, which can lead to electric shocks or even fires.

At the Handy Squad we can carry out PAT testing for fixed appliances, stationary appliances, IT appliances, moveable appliances, portable appliances, cables, chargers and handheld appliances. A full Pat test would include both a visual inspection and a test using specific PAT testing equipment. Upon the combined visual inspection and testing, our electricians would mark the tested appliances as passed or failed and would record the results.

If any of the tested portable electrical equipment fails, it might have to be repaired or replaced. Our electricians have the expertise and the knowledge to be able to check lighting circuit cables, wire a plug, replace bathroom extractor fan, change light starters, replace transformers, change light switches, change light fittings, replace damaged plugs, replace sockets and replace cables and wires.

The Handy Squad has a team of professionals ready to tackle any task you might require, including lifting and shifting desks, painting walls, fitting locks, replacing damaged toilets, building partition walls, assembling flat pack office furniture and replacing broken ceiling tiles.

Maintaining any electrical appliances and equipment safe to use should be a proactive maintenance plan rather than reactive, so call the Handy Squad on 0800-0-12-12-12 or request a free quote by filling out our online form to have your electrical appliances tested as soon as possible.
