....and who not to use?

I've just had confirmation that my Leaf 40 Tekna will be ready for collection this Friday, Woo-Hoo. Never been so excited about buying a new car! Anyway, I've decided on the Zappi 2 tethered charger, as I have solar, but who to use? So many installers on Google. I'm in Doncaster, South Yorkshire, so if anyone's had a really good (or bad) experience I'd love to hear some honest feedback from you before I take the plunge. Thanks in advance, Carl.

It is a tough one because most people are only going to have the experience of one install.

One thing to bear in mind: a lot of the larger brands use 3rd parties to do the installs.

I used Podpoint. They had a good price and we're ok to deal with. But...the 3rd party installer they used in my area were terrible. They were supposed to be car charger install specialists rather than general electricians. The installer took the main power out and had to call out the Northern Power to replace main line fuse. He also left the place a mess miss drilling and leaving holes behind.

To add insult to injury he wired together my garage sub panel and the ground floor house sockets (incl oven circuit) all together on one RCD so it was tripping out at the drop of a hat. Crazy.

But that's the installer not Podpoint...so make of that what you want.

Just from my experience try these guys.
They fitted a Zappi 2 tethered for me, and even helped me out with Octopus when I had trouble getting a smart meter installed.
Cracking company to deal with, seamless and they are just down the road from you.

I used EcoPlugg too. They fitted a Zappi 1 and did a good job. Installation was neat and tidy. Some potential problems in that the CU is some distance from the Zappi and Harvi and CT clamps were problematic at first but all resolve.

Hi Carl,

There's a list of approved installers on the website if that helps?

Cheers Pete. Yes, I’ve contacted a couple of installers. Just wanting to hear if anyone had had a particularly good experience.
