Ian Knight is based in
Coventry, West Midlands providing services as a Portable Appliance Tester (PAT Tester).
Do you operate a mobile disco and you suddenly realised your sound equipment or instruments needs PAT Testing? Did you get booked for a DJ or disco gig in Coventry or the West Midlands and then you got a phone call or eMail from the venue a few days before your gig asking for your PAT test documents? Are you a band with it’s own PA or lighting system and venues want to see PAT test certificates?
I provide a no-nonsense service for entertainers, based on a fixed price. Having over 40 years experience in theatre as an electrician and technician I understand music equipment and what it is used for, how it is used. This means your equipment won’t be failed because I don’t understand it! I also use a Seaward PAT tester and not just a multimeter with a couple of pieces of ratty cable!
Testing normally takes between 1 & 2 hours, depending on the complexity of the equipment and how many items need testing. I can test during the day or weekday evenings. Don’t be fooled by those Google results you see that offer 75p per test – each item of equipment needs 4 tests so it really costs £3 per item and it doesn’t look so cheap now.
I’m based in in Coventry so for postcodes CV1 to CV7 travel to these is free but I will work outside this area and am happy to quote separately for travel expenses.
I can also do repairs to kit and or cables and having worked for Central Theatre Supplies I can advise on equipment upgrades if needed.
