Charge point installation day

Make sure you have your charge point at the ready. Our electrician will give you a call when they are on their way to your home. The electrician will complete a risk assessment and let you know if anything else may be needed. If this affects the installation of your charge point, we will let you know everything before any work begins. Once the electrician is happy they will start to set up a circuit for your charge point. You should expect the electricity supply to be turned off whilst the circuit is being connected, your electricity supply is usually unavailable for 30 minutes but could be longer. After your charge point has been connected to the power supply, our electrician will connect your charge point to a network and set the charge point up. Following the installation, our electrician will demonstrate any applications compatible with your charge point as well as show you how to use the charge point.

Aftercare

All of our installations are quality checked and you will receive a copy of the Electrical Installation certificate within a few days of completion. Depending on the charge point you selected, you will receive a guide about the charge point including any manufacturer warranty. We hope everything continues to work as well as the day it was installed; however, if you have any issues with the charge point make sure to contact the manufacturer. For any electrical concerns or questions which may not be charge point related, speak to our customer service or send a message to see how we can help.
