We have our annual PAT Testing completed each year by Fresh Start and they service provided is always to the highest of quality and standards.

From the office staff who call to remind us our next test is due and arrange our visit appoints to the very professional testers who come on site who have always been friendly, polite and extremely efficient in their job updating us they move around testing the various appliances.

Would highly recommend Fresh Start and we will continue to use them for years to come.

We've used Fresh Start for our annual PAT testing for the last three years. Very happy with the service, which is both friendly, quick and causes minimal disruption to our operation. Great to be able to support Fresh Start's work.

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.

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.
