Hello Fellow Sparks

Just trying to sort out a price list for one of my clients who wants all of hes 12 cafes around London tested this year. I was just wondering if anyone thinks that I am doing it too cheap or too expensive or if I am missing something

Electrical Installation ConditionReport (EICR) Prices

Small Commercial Premises

Minimum Charge £250.00 plus anycharges such as parking and congestion charge and out of hours workwill be charged at £50.00 on top of the final price.

Circuits Price

01 - 20 £15.00 each
21 - 40 £12.50 each
41+ £10.00 each

Thanks in advance


Read a post here the other day (Des 56 I think) which is pretty much how I price it up.
40 mins per circuit + 40mins per DB, multiplied by your hourly rate.


Did two 36 way boards £1,500.00 last week - night clubs 6 each year every year

Checking 100%? Every single socket, switch, and light fitting gets removed and checked?

Exactly my point, you'd introduce more faults than you'd identify.

100% test yes, 100% accessible visual inspection but a sampled detailed inspection.

Sampled detailed inspection isn't a short cut.

I do mean look at everything, the stuff I have come across warrants it. Also I understand it that if you come across one fault you need to check 100% anyway.
If you started on a 30% sampled detailed inspection, you wouldn't normally jump to 100% after 1 fault, you would increase your sample percentage and continue to do so should a pattern of defects emerge.

The sample percentage is there to prevent the introduction of faults and defects due to dismantling, it's all in Guidance Note 3.
