  • Contact CTS on: 01723 362746 or by email using the contact page on the CTS website menu bar above.

  • The following payment methods are accepted by CTS: Bank transfer (preferred method), cash or cheque.
  • When CTS has to travel to reach the inspection and testing site then the minimum charge or invoice level made to customers is usually set at £40.00 during this financial period.
  • A surcharge for extra time spent may have to be be made following discussion with the customer if at any time it proves to be difficult for the engineer to access the equipment that requires inspection and testing. It may prove to be impossible in some cases for CTS to test certain items if relatively easy access is not available. Please note that the CTS pricing structure is based on the number of inspection and test procedures performed & not on the overall time taken to complete the scheduled work at a premises.
  • CTS is not responsible and cannot be held liable in any way for items of equipment that fail the inspection and test procedure.
