You're in the right place! There are lots of companies out there who can offer you a maintenance contract - but not all of them are competent and understand the legislation...
Here's why you should pick Blake's:
Blake's have been helping Southend homes and businesses since 1979, when Ian Blake formed Blake Electrical as a sole trader. 2002 saw the addition of a new Fire & Security department which became NSI Gold accredited in 2005. You can learn more about our history here
Although there are laws and regulations that your systems have to meet, there is no law that states a commercial premises has to hire a qualified maintenance provider - just a 'competent' one.
That means, if you wanted to, you could hire your neighbour who likes DIY and reckons he can "give it a go"...
In a world of unregistered, unqualified and unaccredited cowboys, Blake's provide a friendly, reliable, cost effective maintenance service that is always done right the first time round.
This covers BAFE qualifications for:
NSI Gold approval means that we are audited beyond BAFE competency standards as we're also tested for quality management. For you, the client, this means:
Your current maintenance provider might not be up to scratch... or perhaps the Fire Brigade have recommended you change provider after unnecessary false Fire Alarm call-outs.
Whatever the reason, Blake's can offer a stress-free takeover for your current system, no matter who installed it.
After you cancel your existing maintenance, we can quickly initiate the takeover and, if there are any further details we need from your previous provider, we'll get in touch. Your time won't be taken up with tedious back-and-forth phone calls - Blake's have got you covered.
Want to discuss a takeover with a member of our friendly team? We'd be happy to help! Just call 01702 447800.
The standard procedure for most Fire Extinguisher maintenance providers is:
You might be thinking "we'll what's wrong with that? If an unexpected issue is found that the engineer wasn't prepared for, it's only fair to have to pay for another visit".
Well, would your opinion change if we told you that we carry spare tools and parts with us to our arranged site visits so that, if we spot any additional faults, we'll most likely have the parts to fix it on the spot. No extra effort and no extra cost for more call outs.
Blake's is big enough to cope with complex commercial system designs, installations and maintenance. It also means that, if you have an issue that needs immediate attention, we'll get someone to your premises ASAP.
You're not guaranteed that service if your maintenance provider is a sole-trader. He can't be in two places at once and you may have to wait your turn if there are two urgent jobs...
On the other hand, we're small enough to care passionately about you. Your business doesn't become an anonymous number when it's added to a customer spreadsheet like it does with the larger companies.
As a family run business, we strive to maintain real relationships with our clients.
Choosing your Fire Extinguisher maintenance provider on price alone is a risky move that could literally land you in jail!
