South Glos PAT Testing is a small independent business, set up to meet the PAT testing needs of organisations in the North Bristol and South Gloucestershire area.

Specifically focusing on the needs of small shops, offices, factories, local community/charity groups, plus also independent landlords. Many of these organisations have not even considered the needs or implications of PAT testing, and even if they have, they probably assume their needs could not be catered for by larger PAT testing companies, or a fully qualified electrician at a reasonable price.

Tim Black, is the owner of South Glos PAT Testing, and provides a dedicated service to navigate his clients through the risk/regulations and solutions of PAT testing. He has undertaken the training, owns the necessary equipment and gained a certificate to prove he is competent to undertake PAT testing.

South Glos PAT Testing is primarily focusing on the local vicinity where Tim lives. Mainly dealing with customers in the North Bristol & South Gloucestershire areas, but would consider other convenient client locations.

“South Glos PAT testing provided a highly professional service. I spoke to Tim and he was extremely flexible to fit in with my timelines, and the needs of our clients/visitors at the Community Hub. I would highly recommend their services to anybody needing their electrical items PAT tested”…. Duty Holder, Staple Hill Community Hub.


“We were very impressed with the PAT testing work, and especially the clear explanations Tim provided…… We have decided already that he will be invited back next year to do our repeat PAT testing”.
…. Caretaker and Safety Officer, Local Church & Church Hall.


“Tim first came when we moved into our new premises, and we had a large number of items that needed testing, He was really efficient and made sure all the paperwork was complete and explained, all in a timely manner. He has since been back to check more items for us.
The service that Tim provides is great, he is always friendly and happy to answer questions or give us advice. We would definitely recommend him if you need PAT testing…. CEO, JIGSAW charity for young people with additional needs.


“I was referred to Tim as I was looking for a reliable PAT tester capable of undertaking testing in an HMO (Home of Multiple Occupancy) property on a regular basis. Part way through my initial phone conversation with Tim I knew he was the solution to our needs.
He gave a no-nonsense direct account of how he would undertake the scope of works…..and the cost to do so.
Tim delivered a high end detailed service and supplied advice in respect of ongoing HMO requirements… delighted with the service and now have the peace of mind that we have a reliable professional contact to act in capacity as our preferred HMO-PAT tester”….. Landlord.

“I have a couple of rental properties in the Bristol area. Tim came out to do some PAT testing on the white goods in my flats. He turned up on time, did the work efficiently and left me a good set of records. He also gave me useful advice about how often I should PAT test my items”…. Landlord.


“Our office is a call centre for our operation and suffers heavy inbound telephone calls necessitating the use of our IT booking systems and vehicle tracking facilities at all times. Due to these operational requirements, Tim carried out his work at our offices over two convenient half-day sessions. This allowed our work patterns to remain uninterrupted and my staff of 10 had virtually no disruption to their access of IT systems and supporting hardware.
A full debrief of his findings were made available and results interpreted, which greatly assists with my overall Health & Safety at Work commitments on behalf of the orgainisation”.
…. CEO, Four Towns and Vale Link Community Transproprt (www.4tvl.org.uk).


“We asked Tim if he could carry out the PAT testing of the various items of equipment in our village Youth Centre, including a water boiler, microwave oven and floor polisher. He arranged to do this at a convenient time (amongst all the various hall bookings). Tim identified, scheduled and tested all the applicable items at the hall. On completion he explained everything clearly, and left us with a comprehensive set of test records and paperwork for our records and future use. All in all, a great local service.”.…. Chairman of Committee, Alveston Youth Centre.
