What we do best!

Portable Appliance Testing (PAT Testing)

We are an experienced team of electrical specialists with over 30 years working in PAT Testing and Engineering fields. We further specialised in the Tourism Sector after a series of cottage owners and agents told us they were being grossly over-charged for routine PAT Testing inspections.

Fire Safety Assessments

Complementing the PAT Testing, we also conduct formal Fire Safety Assessments. With experience covering 20 years of fire-fighting training and qualified as a Fire-Fighting Instructor and Fire Equipment Maintainer, we can prepare your Fire Safety Assessment - we will be comprehensive, timely and realistic.

Fire Safety Checks

Following on from our PAT Testing and Fire Safety Assessment, we can re-visit your property, without charge, 3 months after we send you our Fire Assessment Report for a FREE update - our commitment to you is long-term! Alternatively, we can conduct a one-off Annual Fire Safe Check for your property, fitting in with your change-over days.

Where did PAT my Cottage come from?

It's quite a short story really. We have a wealth of experience in Business Administration and the Service Industry ranging from Satellite Engineering to Computer Programming and Data Analysis. When a friend asked for advice about marketing their holiday cottage, we ended up building a new website and conducting their annual PAT Testing in Devon (Portable Appliance Testing)! Six-months on we launched PAT My Cottage!

Why Use PAT My Cottage?

From our perspective, we have three simple reasons for starting PAT My Cottage and these are the same reasons why you should consider us for your PAT Testing:
Reliable and Flexible

Reliable and Flexible

We've all suffered at the hands of delayed or even cancelled PAT Testing contractors, our business model is different to most companies and is designed to minimise the risk of rearranging visits. Almost all our staff are carers for children who were looking to return to work after a career break, they are great time-managers and have impeccable attention to detail!

We can conduct PAT Testing 7 days a week, early mornings and late evenings and can fit in with your changeover days. Alternatively, we can send two engineers and be finished your PAT Testing within the hour if you need, all for the same price!

Professional Integrity

Professional Integrity

We understand the value of a good reputation, our PAT Testing business is built on one, but fully accept your reputation is just as important.

We have our own Code of Conduct which places you and your property at the heart of our business.

Even if one of our PAT Testing engineers has a childcare emergency, we will still visit your property on the scheduled day. Our engineers often work in pairs and one will still visit if the other has a family emergency - failing that you will have one of the admin/support staff as we are all trained in PAT Testing!

Honestly Priced

We have worked in most sectors from heavy engineering to retail but, as we feel we can add significant value to your business, we have decided to focus on PAT Testing for the Tourism Sector.

Our pricing policy is fair and open and our clients tell us our fees can be as much as 30% lower than their old PAT company; have us conduct your Fire Safety Check on the same day as your PAT Testing and you will save even more.

Before taking on a contract we would appreciate a face-to-face meeting, we acknowledge this approach is not the industry norm but believe a trusting relationship is important to you and us.
