How I calculate my charges

The main part of the calculation is the number of items tested. This is on a sliding scale so the more you need testing the cheaper it becomes. See the right hand column for full rundown. These charges apply in all calculations.
I'm based near Rochester, Kent and can test in most Kent, London and home counties addresses and the second part of the calculation is the call out or distance charge. This varies depending on where you are and how many clients I can get on the day I test your equipment. Usually the more notice you can give me the more likely I am to be able to book you in on a day I'm already busy in or near your area which means you'll share the charge with all other clients that day - the busier I am the cheaper it is. Small jobs can be brought to me by arrangement.
If your job is urgent then unless you're very lucky it's likely that you'll pay the full call out charge for the day yourself. However, whatever your circumstances please call, I'm usually cheaper than the industrial testing companies even if I come to you specially. Email or phone for quote on this as it varies considerably. However, a typical charge for SE London with 2-3 clients booked that day should only be £10.00-15.00, going specially to the west of London would be considerably more but let me quote you.

FREE REPLACEMENT FUSES

New for 2017 I've decided to replace fuses for free. The fuse should always match the cable and/or the appliance.

KEEPING COSTS DOWN

If you're testing as a whole band then making sure all the equipment is at the same address will keep costs down. Each member of the band can still have their own individual certificates and you can have an overall band certificate too.

ADDITIONAL CHARGES

Please ensure that all equipment is reasonably accessible. I'm normally quite relaxed about minor issues like a load of racked gear but if I have to dismantle a whole rack to reach the equipment I may charge for this, likewise some crawling around is OK but if it's excessive then an additional charge will be levied - the test machine I use can do most tests on it's internal battery and if some equipment is inaccessible then it might be possible to test without the machine being connected to the mains.

REPLACEMENT PLUGS AND MINOR REPAIRS

If you need a replacemnt plug I'll supply and fit but I do charge for the plug (price varies depending on type of plug, basic or heavy duty etc). Again this free fitting of plugs assumes one or two, if it's a lot then I might have to add a small charge. I'm not a repair technician so do not do repairs, however I can spot obvious loose connections and will rarely make a charge for fixing something simple.
