Removing stress from the EV charger installation process.

With our FREE home survey.

Angled - EV Car Charger Installation Survey Made Easy and Stress Free

We do the dirty work so you don’t have to 

This is because the process of buying and installing an electric vehicle charger can be a daunting task and a stressful experience. Research shows that the charger installation process is often the most painful part of using your electric car at home. This is because almost all EV charger companies rely on YOU to answer a wide range of questions and collate specific information that the average person on the street is going to struggle to know or even find out – such as…

  • Will my home be able to handle the extra power draw? 
  • Do I need to make any changes to my fuse box? 
  • Whom do I need to notify? 
  • What or who is a DNO? 
  • Is my home on a loop supply? 

To be fair this is not companies trying to bamboozle you or over complicate things, putting an EV charger into a home safely means all of the above information, and often more, is required. This is why we take a different approach when it comes to the putting electric car charger into your home correctly.

At an angle - On site survey to support the EV charger installation process

We take that stress away with our FREE home survey as standard.

People are unsure of what is needed and all to often get thing (understandably wrong) which means the amount that you pay for an installation tends to increase sometimes quite a bit. That’s why we include a free professional home survey with every purchase. This is the most accurate way to know exactly what you will need to pay an EV car charger installer (who always needs to be a fully qualified electrician).

Who will carry out the Survey 

We have a national network of installation teams that will work with you to gather the necessary information and figure out the best location for your Optimus Charger. What to expect during the Survey visit The survey will take around 15-30 minutes depending on your property and requirements, and just so you know, they will need access to the following: 

  • Your gas meter (if you have one) 
  • Your electric meter
  • Your water stopcock
  • Your fuse board(s)
  • An electricity bill (to hand)

This is so that we can ensure that your home is safe and meets all the required regulations according to BS 7671:2018 (the 18th Edition). Please also have your last electricity bill to hand, they will need some numbers from that too.
