The choice is yours...
We believe you should have the choice of who installs your charger. This allows greater transparency with charger costs and installation. We don't force you to take installation as standard - so feel free to purchase the charger alone, or select the installation option before adding to cart.
Our installation service is provided by our fully certified team for a set fee of £489 (inc VAT). This includes mounting to an external wall, and up to 10m of cabling to spare circuit on consumer unit. More complicated installs, or remote locations may incur an additional charge. We'll contact you once your order is complete to arrange the install.
If you wish to arrange your own installation, you may know a local qualified electrician already, or check out our Trustatrader.com Partnership below, to find an approved installer!

How Much Does an Installation Typically Cost?
You will mostly likely need a new cable installed in your household/workplace consumer unit/fuse board, and the charger attached to an outside wall of your house/office or in a garage. Both the cable and charger do not usually require a large amount of work but check with the qualified electrician.
For home installations, the average cost in the UK is £400. The UK’s OZEV grant ended in March 2022 for single unit homeowners. Apartments owners and those who rent their accommodation are still eligible from 1st April 2022 with a newly named “EV Chargepoint Grant”. More information can be found here.
Scottish residents can also still apply for £250 funding through the Energy Saving Trust.

For businesses, the Government Workplace Charge Scheme (WCS) offers grants for installation. More details can be found here on the UK government website. All the EV Chargers on smartlycharging.com are approved for installation in the WCS.
The grant covers up to 75% of the total costs of the purchase and installation of EV chargepoints (inclusive of VAT), capped at a maximum of: - £350 per socket - 40 sockets across all sites per applicant - for instance, if you would like to install them in 40 sites, you will have 1 socket available per site.
Once the chargepoint(s) have been installed, the authorised installer can claim the grant from OZEV on the applicant’s behalf. The chargepoint installation must be completed and the voucher claimed within 6 months of the voucher’s issue date. If you have any questions, please let us know! Our expert team is happy to help!
