Abele Electrical Testing

Fully Qualified and Independent Portable Appliance and Microwave Testing in Devon and Cornwall

That's what we do and all we do, We specialise in Portable Appliance Testing and microwave leakage and functionality checks.
Or to give the correct title In-Service Inspection & Testing of Electrical Equipment.
We will never try and up-sell. Recently we failed 2 microwaves on emission failures. The reason, the doors were leaking microwaves above the recommended emission level. We failed it, not because we wanted more business, not because we wanted to repair it and not because we wanted to recommend a suitable supplier ( who may be a relative etc. ) We failed it due to the emissions being dangerous. Simple as that. We, of course, can advise on the type you need i.e. domestic or industrial, or if it is cost effective to repair. But we leave it to you to get the best deal possible and shop around.

With us you will be assured of a friendly professional service at a price that you can afford.

In these difficult times we are aware of Costs to ourselves and our clients.
We don’t like spending our hard earned money so why should you. We may not at a glance seem the cheapest. However companies (national) claim to offer 0.60p per item. We honestly cant match that. We wouldn't be able to offer a first class professional service for that. We don't rush and we do a proper job. We believe in quality, not quantity, lets face it peoples lives could be at stake. Also with us, a plug, connected to a lead, that is also connected to a computer is classified as 1 item, not as others, they count this as 3. Also remember with us minor repairs and retests are FREE. No hidden costs. The cost you pay us today per item will be held at that price until January 2015.
Remember we also offer free advice from our wealth of experience.
