Electrical Installation Condition Report. Call Us

The reasons for carrying out an inspection is to determine the current condition of all existing electrical systems in terms of deterioration of the cables, accessories, operational design & safety. Regular testing meets your HSE obligation of your duty of care towards others safety. It is also a requirement of most insurance companies for you to have regular testing done by a registered electrical contractor like ourselves.

The results we obtain are used to verify that your electrical system complies with the current electrical wiring regulations - by identifying failures or defects and making the appropriate recommendations through the electrical installation condition inspection report.

We are licensed and authorised to test and inspect all electrical systems in domestic, commercial and Industrial premises. We carry professional indemnity insurance which protects you against any losses occurring through wrong advice given by us. We are fully qualified & approved electricians, we are registered with the National Association of Professional Inspectors and Testers, we are also TrustMark registered.

If you've got property which you want to let out, you'll need to get a Landlord Safety Certificate. This is a great thing to have, and not just because it satisfies the legal requirement to ensure that your property is safe for tenants. When we're carrying out the inspection required for the certificate we'll be able to find any problems - saving you money in the long run!

Please Note - We have had to introduce a policy regarding electrical reports/certificates. If the work/testing we do for you requires a report/certificate to be produced, then these documents will only be forwarded to you when we have received cleared funds/payment for the work carried out. Unfortunately incidents of customers receiving reports/certificates and then simply not paying for the work has resulted in us introducing this policy. I am sure you will understand and that this policy is not intended to offend anyone.
