Southwest Test has undertaken a Periodic Inspection Report of our electrical installation. A highly professional report has been produced facilitating remedial work to be scheduled in the most cost effective way possible. Our plant is spread over 65,000 square feet with numerous mature manufacturing items to inspect.

That Southwest Test was able to complete the work within 14 days, without assistance and working at times outwith normal manufacturing working hours, is testimony to their honesty, technical skill, energy and enthusiasm for the work. I might add Southwest Test are very cost competitive.

On every occasion when I have had need to call an electrician I have unhesitatingly contacted Southwest Test before other (well known and more expensive) local companies in the knowledge that I will get fast response, reliable diagnosis and rapid action on repairs or maintenance.

They have dealt with the installation and commissioning of electric gates at my property (which two other qualified electricians had already attempted and failed), and have taken entire responsibility for subsequent dealings with the supplier on warranty and replacement of unserviceable parts, so that I have been relieved of all dealings with the supplier.

I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Southwest Test for all electrical works either for the home or the work place.


My original communication with Southwest Test was via several emails to and fro explaining the auto electrical problems I was experiencing with my Nissan 4x4 pick-up. They promptly, comprehensively and with clear explanation replied to these and we decided on a plan for repair.

When the electrician arrived on the day to carry out the work he presented himself in a friendly and professional manner and set about the repairs without delay. He very efficiently rectified the problems and was even keen and co-operative enough to take on several hours of extra work there and then which continued long after the normal working day was done. I really appreciate his efforts and satisfactory completion of all the agreed work and have no doubt he saved me a fortune on a main dealer repair.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Southwest Test for auto electrical works and would definitely call upon their services again should any of our fleet of vehicles develop electrical problems in the future.

Southwest Test recently undertook a safety inspection of my rental property. As part of this process they highlighted two major faults, either one of which could have had disastrous consequences (no earth strap to gas mains, consumer unit too small to cope with demand placed on it). The house had previously been worked on by another local electrician who had not picked up on either of these faults.

Mr Iain Dickie

I write on behalf of the clergy, vestry and congregation of the above church to thank you most sincerely for your work on our organ. We are very grateful for the time and trouble you expended on this project. The result has delighted the organists, and even the least musical members of the congregation have noticed an improvement in the tone of the instrument.

Thank you again!

My 25 year-old Peavey valve amp packed up on stage and I was loathe to bin it after such trusty service, so it was a relief to find someone to repair it at all. However, the work done by Southwest Test was more than a repair: it was a professional refurbishment of the electronics, with the added bonus of helpful tips on keeping my amp in good order. Everything excellently communicated and executed at a very acceptable price - what more could anyone ask? Many thanks indeed!

Your service turn around was excellent and speedy which is what any professional musician needs when they are constantly gigging and on the road...

...knowing that there is a reliable technician if the worst case scenario happens is always reassuring...

Many thanks for the prompt and efficient repair of my Studiomaster amplifier at a very reasonable cost.
I was impressed you could pick up the faulty amplifier within a few hours of calling and your continual communication inspired confidence. I also appreciated your persistence in locating the spare part which was no longer available from the original supplier. The amplifier continues to work well. I therefore would have no hesitation in using you in the future and recommending you.
