shughie: RT @frankieroberto: @futurecitiescat the map is actually from @Briantist, not TfL. But it depicts the schemes in the 2050 plan.

What price for an aerial installation?

What prices have you been quoted and paid for an aerial installation?

What prices have you been quoted and paid for an aerial install
Published on by on UK Free TV

In responses to the guideline I posted about how much having a new aerial fitted should cost, Ian Grice posted: "£40-£50? Every aerial fitter I contacted wants at least £150+VAT considering you can get a class 3 aerial for under £10 and a class 2 for under £15 and cable is 40p a metre why are they charging so much for 30 minutes work?"

OK, for some places putting up a TV aerial is hard work, such as multi-story properties. As many people will simply be exchanging a Group A, B, C/D, E or K aerial for a wideband type, often without changing the supporting pole or cable, a high price cannot be justified.

I am concerned that some companies will exploit vulnerable groups (such as the elderly).

So, I what prices have you been quoted for aerial installations? What price have you paid for installation?

Do you know of any companies to avoid? Do you know of any companies that are good value for money?

Or do you work for a great aerial installation company?

Steve P: It's annoying because if people weren't so impatient they would get the job done right first time! I hate people having to pay twice for one job! People want something for nothing these days, what they actually end up with is nothing for something!

Why don't you buy an aerial and fixing and cable then risk your life on a roof for fuck all you Mong
But then get a gas fitter to knock on your door and for that he charges £65 plus vat
Or take a car to a main dealer charged at £55 per hour not a risky job is it ???
Get my point yet ??
