Quick to respond to enquiry and quote; very reliable, arrived on date & time and PAT testing completed and certification received three days after tests completed.
Have used this company in the past and certainly will do so again in the future.

Review Comments
Excellent service. They were prompt to provide a quote and organise someone to come in and PAT test our equipment. The tradesperson who attended was very professional and tested all our equipment quickly. The only reason we selected 4 stars for "Value for money" is their quote wasn't the cheapest we received but we chose Fresh Start because of the excellent work they do helping people who have previously homeless learn a trade.

I use Fresh Start every year to get my mobile catering equipment tested. I can't recommend them highly enough. Very professional and friendly and they only charge for items that pass. Not only that, you get to support a great charity too!

Fresh Start undertook PAT testing of all our electrical equipment and the service was excellent - both quick and thorough with little or no disruption to the day-to-day running of the Kirk office or Kirk hall.

I think Freshstart should lower the £60 call out charge and increase the cost per item. E.g If you have only 10 items then its £7.75 per item!! (and you might be better buying a NEW table lamp). Fine if you have 90 items (£2.40 per item)

Nevertheless, reliable service, accommodating engineer electricians and Leanne in the office could not be more helpful or understanding

Everything was incredibly smooth, from first contact to attending on time on the agreed date, carrying out the service efficiently and politely and invoicing / certificates. I would have no hesitation in using them again.
