Your go-to experts in Kent for EV charger installations.

Have you just invested in an electric car or van, and want to enjoy speedy charging at home? Consider a charge station installed by our OZEV accredited team at Gilbert & Stamper.

Convenient green charging whenever you need it.

Electric cars are slowly becoming normalised, and many families and businesses are considering purchasing an EV. But in some places, the charging network isn't up to speed, with many motorists finding difficulty in using or accessing a public charging network. A great alternative is to install a charging point at your home or business. Not only do you have exclusive use of the station, you can often save money over some of the more expensive public charging rates. There are also a number of government initiatives which contribute towards the installation of smart chargers.

As an added bonus, it may also improve the value of your home!

At Gilbert & Stamper, we are available throughout the Tonbridge and Kent area for the installation, maintenance, repair and replacement of EV charging stations. We are able to install a range of chargers from the likes of EO, Rolec, POD Point, myenergi (Zappi) and Tesla among others. Whether you have your charger ready and waiting, or you need some helpful advice in selecting the right one for you, we are always happy to help.

Enjoy worry-free charging with our help

Our electrical engineers can be counted on to install your preferred charging unit at a time that suits you. We can advise on the best location for your charger, to give you all the access you need. Our engineers will fully test every part of the charger, and can help show you how to use it and store it, to ensure it is protected against the elements. We can also install specialised charger locks where required (and supplied).

If you are a business, we can also be counted on to install one or several units at your premises. By having units at your premises, you can ensure your fleet of delivery vans, taxis or other commercial vehicles are fully charged and ready to start the day.

Things to ask yourself when choosing a charger:

  • Does the unit I want to install come with the right socket? (i.e. Type 1, Type 2, CCS)
  • Do I want a budget-friendly option, or a more advanced model?
  • Is the design important to me?
  • Do I need the benefits of fast charging?
  • Can I easily access it when in the desired location?
  • Do I need a lock or other security feature?
  • Do I need a self-billing feature?
