Once again, an excellent service from Fresh Start when I was renewing my PAT certificates. They are friendly and professional and you get to support a great charity too. Can't recommend highly enough.

We as a company have used Fresh Start for a number of years to carry out our office PAT testing. Every year we have Brian come in, who is as cheerful as ever and carries out his job with professionalism and friendliness which is always a bonus.

Thanks again to the team at Fresh Start for the brilliant services and wonderful opportunities they give to people as a social enterprise.

I was very impressed from the moment I made contact to the inspection which was carried out without fuse or issue.

In a working hotel this is very important and I would have no hesitation in recommending them

Excellent service from my first inquiry to completion of the job. Quick to answer queries with clear answers. Turned up to complete the job as per arrangements and issued certificate very promptly. Great value as well, and it puts something back into the community. Would not hesitate to recommend Fresh Start for PAT testing.

We have used Fresh Start to get our portable appliances tested (PAT certificates) for the past two years and could not be happier with the service. You book a slot, take your items to Ferry Road Drive, and they will test your items there and then. The staff are very friendly and professional, the prices are very reasonable, and you get to support a great charity too. Highly, highly recommend.

An excellent service in every respect.

Fresh Start contact us at least a month before our PAT testing certificate expires and then attend our office on an agreed date to test all appliances.

Everything happens with the minimum disruption.

This is a great service.

We have used Fresh Start for a number of years now and always found them to be efficient and their staff courteous.

Would have no problems recommending them to other businesses.

We had a good experience working with Fresh Start this year. We used their PAT testing services for some of our offices and we are satisfied with their work, pricing and customer service! Most likely, we will consider working with them again next year!
