What's included as standard for Express installation?

More than 9 in 10 of our installations are "standard", without attracting additional costs. 

  • Up to 15 metres cabling from incoming power supply into your home to your charger - for the vast majority of homes this is more than enough. The charger will be mounted on to a wall.
  • We include and install a surge protection device (SPD) to keep you, your charger and your property safe. Some companies charge up to £100 extra for this critical safety device.
  • The cable will be installed by taking the shortest route defined by the electrician or up to 6m of PVC trunking with a maximum of 4 direction changes, to the exterior of the building or cable clipped direct to the fabric of the building.
  • We install the CT clamp that accompanies the Cord charger. This allows the charger to function correctly with other electrical devices in the home.
  • We register your Cord device so it works with your app.
  • Electrical testing and certification.

What may attract an additional cost: 

  • Gas / water bonding rectification / upgrade. This is the most common additional expense, and is an important measure to ensure your charger is installed safely and meets safety and legal requirements. Unfortunately, under regulation we are unable to install a charger without this being in place and to current standards.
  • Additional cabling over 15m. This also requires additional labour to install.
  • Non-wall mounting (i.e. post).
  • Any groundworks or complicated cable runs.

If any of these additional costs apply, we'll be in touch to explain before booking your installation. 

FAQs
 

Where is express installation available?

Our express installation service is available nationally. It is subject to local availability of approved installers.

If we haven't got an engineer available we'll let you know. 

 

How much is it?

As this is an express service, we charge an additional £50 for this. 

 

When do I pay? 

Once you have completed your self survey and we're ready to book you in, we'll request payment.

Once you have paid your booking will be confirmed. 

 

What if you can't complete installation within 10 working days? 

If we cannot complete installation within 10 working days, you have plenty of options.

You can either cancel, or we will book you in on the next available date.

If we cannot install within 10 working days the express charge will not be applied. 

 

What can slow things down? 

Whilst 9 in 10 of our installations are standard, the most common things that can slow down an express installation are: - 

  • Non-standard installations. If you require additional cabling, have a complex install run, or do not have an isolator switch this can slow down installation. 
  • If your supply is "looped" we will need permission from your DNO (distribution network operator) before we can proceed with the installation.

Don't worry - we're here to help. If any of these situations apply to you, our team will be in touch to explain and talk through your options. 

What's included as standard?
 

We include more for "standard" - which means that more than 9 in 10 of our installations are "standard", without attracting additional costs. 

  • An in-person, pre-installation home survey to gather all of the information we need about your property for a hassle-free installation. 
  • Up to 30 metres cabling from incoming power supply into your home to your charger - for the vast majority of homes this is more than enough. The charger will be mounted on to a wall. 
  • We include and install a surge protection device (SPD) to keep you, your charger and your property safe. Some companies charge up to £100 extra for this critical safety device.
  • The cable will be installed in existing building voids, taking the shortest route defined by the electrician or up to 6m of PVC trunking with a maximum of 4 direction changes, to the exterior of the building or cable clipped direct to the fabric of the building.
  • We install the CT clamp that accompanies the Cord charger. This allows the charger to function correctly with other electrical devices in the home. 
  • We register your Cord device so it works with your app. 
  • Electrical testing and certification. 

What may attract an additional cost: 

  • Gas / water bonding rectification / upgrade. This is the most common additional expense, and is an important measure to ensure your charger is installed safely and meets safety and legal requirements. Unfortunately, under regulation we are unable to install a charger without this being in place and to current standards.
  • Additional cabling over 30m - because of the length, this requires a thicker cable and additional labour to install.
  • Non-wall mounting (i.e. post).
  • Unfortunately we are unable to complete significant groundworks (i.e. digging a trench).

Please see our installation FAQs here.

What's the process?
 

The installation itself usually takes 3-4 hours. 

When you purchase your home charger, you can choose a home-survey date that suits you. These are available within 3 working days. 

Once the home survey is completed, we aim to have you up and running within 2 weeks. If you have a more complex installation or live in a remote area this may take a little longer. 

If you'd like to know more, please see our detailed installation process guide.
