Quotes and estimates are valid for 30 days from the date of the offer. They are only an offer to do the work and do not constitute as a contract for work.
If a quote is offered it is a fixed price and will not be adjusted if the work quoted for is as the customer requested.
Estimates are based on the information received from the customer. In the case of PAT testing we give a cost per item or quantity and are charged accordingly at the end of the work.
Additional travel costs from 1st March 2022
Please note as from 1st March 2022 Regrettably due to the increased fuel costs I have had to look at a fuel charge. To keep this plain and simple as a per milleage cost is unpredictable I will be making a travel charge to sites over 15 miles radius from my base location postcode CM1 6FJ. If your location is over 15 miles then there will be a one off charge added to the invoice for £10.00 and will be shown as travel cost.
Payment can be made by BACS or Card payment. Card payment is only taken on site.
Payment terms are strictly payment on receipt of invoice. Payment by BACS only.
The Certificate and Asset list will only be issued after full payment has been received and emailed within 24 hours of receipt of funds subject to staff availability. We endevour to send out documents as soon as payment is received.
If we can fill the cancelled appointment in that time frame then we do not charge the fee. If we are unable to then the charge will be added to the final invoice if we visit at another time to do the testing. If the appointment is not booked then an invoice is generated for the minimum charge of £59.00.
If for any reason the engineer attends on site for a confirmed appointment and is unable to carry out the work for circumstances out of his control, such as no one on site to meet them, premises closed etc then there will be a charge of £59.00 per engineer per day which is our minimum charge.
Cancellations before the 2 days are also charged at £59.00 if the appointment is not rearranged and also at the discretion of the Director.
If Essex PAT Testing Ltd have to cancel the appointment we will give you as much notice as is practicable and are not responsible for any costs incurred what so ever to the customer in this event.
It is the policy of EssexIO Ltd to pursue all non payment of invoices firstly through mediation with the customer and as a last resort through collection or court action. We prefer to settle issues before. As we offer work on good faith before payment we expect customers to adhere to the payment terms.
By placing a verbal or written order or appointment the customer is accepting the above conditions.
Essex PAT Testing Ltd is a trading division of EssexIO Ltd and invoices are issues from EssexIO Ltd.
Many thanks for getting this far
