Default Pat Testing

How much do you guys pay for Pat Test if you rent your caravan out?

I've just found out my Park is charging £6 per item But as a Qualified Pat Tester for Work, where i pat test Construction Equipment i find this a lot of money when the process just takes 30 seconds with a pat tester?

Could i Pat test my own Electricals using my own pat tester (Borrowed from work) and labels, also if i give my site a copy of my Certificate and a record sheet of items tested.

Although I can do all of mine at school I run on schools insurance. To do it on our site I would have to do it with my own insurance and something like 5 million public liability insurance which is prohibitive.

I'd thought i'd give it a try, I've been treating it like my second home for a while now but would also like the opportunity to rent it out to pay the site fees when i pay them.

I have my own Public liability and professional indemnity insurance, as long as the pat tester is calibrated i can't really see a problem. Not everyone want to pay £6 per item when you might have 10 or 15 electrical items in the Caravan

I would check with your company first but if they agree, why not? You are obviously qualified to do the pat test.

All we need is for these to be carried out by a competent person with public liability insurance and approved by the park manger, certificate to be copied on completion.
£6.00 per item is excessive even if appliances are placed together, Iím a qualified electrical tester, an electrical qualification is not needed for these tests.
