Terms & Conditions


1. Installation Work:


(a) All electrical installation work will comply with BS7671:2008 Amendment 1 (2011) and any future amendments in force at the time of the work.
(b) All electrical installation work will comply with applicable Building Regulations in force at the time of the work.
(c) Electrical Installation and Minor Works certificates and Building Regulations notifications issued by Purdie Electrical cover only those works installed by Purdie Electrical.
(d) Where work is to extend or modify existing circuits, costs quoted assume existing circuits are safe and in adequate condition. Any work required to bring these circuits up to standard will be at additional cost.
(e) No addition or alteration will be carried out to rubber insulated (VIR) cables.
(f) Where carpet or floor coverings require lifting, every effort will be made to avoid damage and to refit to an acceptable standard. However, employing a specialist fitter may be prudent, to effect a fully satisfactory reinstatement.
(g) Unless agreed before hand, chases to walls, etc will be left un-filled. Final finishing of skim coat plaster and final decoration is excluded.
(h) Purdie Electrical will endeavour to undertake installation work to a clean standard. However, some additional vacuuming and cleaning down of surfaces should be expected afterwards. Any equipment susceptible to damage from dust (e.g. electronic or computer equipment) must be removed from the work area prior to the arrival of Purdie Electrical.

2. New Consumer Units:


(a) Installation of new consumer units (fuse board) is subject to the whole installation being tested to ensure it is safe to be connected to a new consumer unit. This is a legal requirement under Part P Building Regulations. The basic cost for this is included in the installation cost.
(b) Any faults found during the above testing which are deemed unsafe, must be rectified prior to that circuit being reconnected to any new consumer unit. Any costs for such work are not included. Such issues will be brought to the client’s attention as soon as is practical during the installation work.
(c) In particular it may be necessary to install new main services bonding to water, gas or oil supplies and again these are at additional cost unless agreed otherwise beforehand.

3. Exclusions:


(a) Whilst we try to be as helpful as possible and will generally do some limited moving to create access, the clearing and/or moving of furniture and other items blocking access to work areas is not included within the quote.
(b) Whilst Purdie Electrical will try and ensure that electrical items are plugged back in and in working order before we leave the premises, we will not be held responsible for any losses due to any electrical item not being plugged back in and/or switched on.
(c) Removal from site and disposal of rubble, materials, general waste and packaging is not included. Purdie Electrical may, at their discretion, remove old fittings and wiring for responsible disposal.



4. Pricing


(a) Estimated costs assume continuous and unhindered access to the site by prior arrangement with the client.
(b) Unless stated otherwise, the costs quoted assume standard working hours between 08:30hrs – 16.30hrs Monday to Friday inclusive. Work required by the client outside these hours may attract premium rates although we will try and be flexible.
