cheap aerial installation for digital freeview
Getting your TV aerial replaced or upgraded is not an every day occurrence. Providing every thing is renewed a decent aerial rig will last in excess of 15 years. I regularly replace antennas over 20 years old. With this in mind you are unlikely to have a TV engineer to hand. Searching the Internet for TV aerial installers will throw up hundreds of results. You will be hard pressed to find an aerial installation company, with clear pricing being displayed. Most companies tend to go with the free quotation option. In most cases this is a good way to get an idea of aerial install prices. Unfortunately there are many national companies hiding behind local telephone numbers. They use high-pressure sale techniques. If you find prices listed they will be start from prices. Usually they will not include vat, all extras like cabling, brackets and TV set-up will be chargeable. When we quote we will quote worst-case scenario. This means your quote includes new aerial, bracket & mast, cabling to TV and tune-in. Compare this to a national company “ DIGITAL FREEVIEW AERIAL from £65.00”. With this you get a low gain aerial fitted to your original mast and cable. In reality you never get just the aerial. This is where you would be advised to replace this and that and before you know it you will have a bill for over £200.00.
When searching for aerial services never pick a company advertising in the sponsored links. These are the listing shaded in pink, and are used solely national companies.
