Called out as agreed customer had decided to get another company in to add an extension to our aerial installation but instead of of using an external splitter decided to do a nice tape joint and stick it up the aerial pole unfortunateley this doesnt help things when it rains!!!!
Explained this to customer who couldnt remember who actually came out to do it but still called out free of charge to explain their problems and got on roof to check it out.
Picture shows how it was done. If customer wantsa to take it further then maybe find out who actually created problem in first place all is good at our expense.

They arrived at the beginning of August to fit a new Aeriel which worked on the day and charged me £75! However the next day the Aeriel was not working at all! Since then my partner has rang plenty of times where they have arranged to come and fix the problem, yet never turn up! So now in October and I still don't have a working Aeriel. Absolutely appalling, I will not be recommending and I will certainly be taking this further.

The guys arrived on time, carried out the work very quickly & efficiently, we are very satisfied with their work enabling us to receive Sky TV when we thought we would be relegated to Freeview only.

Part 2 of Anon Middleton Rd
We did offer to hoover the small amount of brickdust up for the customer who lives at home with the 84 yr old lady dave never recieved a response to hoover up.
In my opinion this installation was carried out to the highest quality possible and the customer followed both of us round despite the torrential downpour at the time of installation and no point throughout this installation did he say he was unhappy with any part of it.
Signals where checked on the roof by myself with a meter and were perfect and producing 63db which is 22db above the minimum guideline for digital reception.
Below is an identical aerial installation with same eqpt with the exception of a wolsey splitter compared to a labgear spiltter they both do the same job
Regards Andy

With response to the last comment by Anon of Middleton rd Heywood
We supplied and fitted a Blake 32 Element Aerial with a 4 way Labgear masthead splitter which are all CAI Benchmarked equiptment as approved for use with Digital tv reception this was installed on the chimney onto a heavy duty lashing kit with a 6 foot 1.5 inch heavy gauge pole in exactly the same location as old aerial and on the only chimney on the property as discussed with the customer
Regards entry point living room was coming through window frame and we asked if you wanted it low down off the skirting boards then the heavy bookcase would need emptying behind the tv but customer agreed with us drilling just under the window sill was fine and cable looked exactly as before, bedroom was discussed and fitted as agreed through built in wardrobes and customer emptied wardrobe for us to drill thx for that

Quality of aerial and splitter is ok, and the standard of external installation seems sound, although didn't ask where on the roof we wanted the aerial sited. Similarly they drilled holes through the wall without asking the exact location of the holes (which means it is visible above the TV when if moved slightly could have been unnoticeable. Also left one of the aerial leads too short to reach the desired location (despite highlighting the need for plenty of cable) so have had to move kit around to provide enough slack to be able to hide the cable. Didn't hoover up the mess after drilling the holes...a small thing I know, but a major difficulty for an 84 year old to try and do in a confined space. I don't believe they used a meter to accurately align the aerial, just did it by eye; although no issues with signal quality so far. Overall not bad, but small attention to detail, that wouldn't take them any longer, could turn them from OK installers to excellent ones. Price was fair.

Thanks for the last comment left by 4 anson rd longsight, as you are aware after the conversation i had with you about one of your staff cancelling the job on the morning of the installation due to the maintenance guy not being around, i said i would try and squeeze it in before xmas but couldnt promise you but after you rang back complaining i did offer to arrange again of which your response was dont bother, sorry for the misunderstanding but maybe all staff need to be informed of chganges.You must appreciate this is the busiest time of year and to rearrange just before xmas can cause problems.

AVOID!! AVOID!! AVOID!!

This is the most unprofessional company we have ever had the misfortune to deal with and never to meet!!

We twice arranged for them to visit our house and twice they have not turned up. When we chased them about the job they twice accused us and lied to us that someone had phoned up and cancelled the job. Pure lies! There is only 4 of us and none of us cancelled they job. Total liars!!

I had two guys from Aerial-Tek round to my house yesterday to fit me a external tv aerial due to the poor reception i was having with the aerial i had in the loft. Firstly they arrived within the time frame that was arranged and carried out the work efficiently. The aerial they fitted looks of good quality and has been fitted neatly, they also made sure everything was working as it should before they left, and charged me the quoted price. I would use them again in the future or recommend to friends and family.

Mr unhappy from langho
As i explained to you on 7 october i had arranged to come back to your house on the 10th oct as not been working for 2 weeks due to a bereavement and also that i was instructed by your builder as you were on holiday at the time to replace the aerial like for like which we did and checked the tvs upstairs as instructed again by your builder and all was fine no mention of a kitchen aerial but as this took 6 months to come light just seems as its an after thought you didnt reply back to my text yesterday stating we are coming to you on 10th so still hangs in the balance
We are not responsible for all the internal wiring and if we are also not told exactly what you require at the end you need tio work i cant work blind feel free to ring me back

The engineers offered a reasonable price for the job described to them over the phone. They turned up at the arranged time and quickly carried out a very good job.
Our installation was not really straight forward (lots of crawling around in the loft) but the engineers carried out the job very well.
In addition they offered further advice to improve the overall job.

Thanks to Andy and Ian for sorting my reception issues out for my satellite after numerous failed attempts from sky and two other independent installers to relocate the dish to a hard to reach chimney and rewire it, I now have a perfect signal for the first time in 18 months so all is good
Highly recommended just keep them topped up with tea and coffee though
Many thanks again

Dreadful: Arranged to come round, waited in, no call, didn't turn up. Sent texts simply asking if he was coming/ waht happened.. No reply. Called again, I said Hi and explained who I was and he actually put the phone down on me. At this point I gave up. I am staggered that anyone would treat his customers in such a manner. Missing appointments can happen and we all make mistakes but for me this is inexcusable and unprofessional.

The guys came to see us this morning, bang on time, as arranged by email.

They were really quick & helpful & identified that we didnt need a really expensive new ariel, just a new booster at a third of the cost!

Very very happy with the service!!

Just a quick comment with regards to Anon of Darwen looks like we suffer from misunderstandings with what I said yes I took your number down wrong but I did attend your property at the said on Tuesday, I had one conversation with you on Tuesday when you arrived back home and picked up my card and I said I would come on Friday morning and that I would ring u now I had your correct number and I would come early but you did also state that it didn't matter as long as I rang you as you worked ten minutes away from home,sorry if there was a misunderstanding about the time .

I contacted Andy @ Aerial –Tek when planning a multi-room installation.

First things first ... where else can you text a skilled tradesman & he calls you back right away? (nice touch dude). Secondly, his prices are also really reasonable & he is clearly very knowledgeable.

Being no stranger to electrics, I had a look @ the web site & got some great information from it. This was enhanced further when I spoke to Andy personally.

I have seriously never come across such an easy-going tradesman who is willing to help in any way he can!

I would have no hesitation in using Andy in the future (& may have to if the project goes T**s – Up on me).

If you like ...
• Approachable Professionalism
• Vast Experience & Industry Knowledge
• Quality Work
• Keen Pricing
Look no further than Aerial-Tek for a reliable & professional service. I would highly recommend them.

Spoke to Andy as I had a TV problem, and was good enough to write a report to send to the TV company to prove that the LG Telly was poor, and needed a much stronger signal that most others, and when I asked Andy to come and fit new aerial, he told me he would be there at 08:00 in the morning, and it was spot on when he got to me, gave me a lot of advice and all at no extra charge.

Ariel Tek took the worry out of finding a competent installer who would not rip you off. Andy provided a first class service. He was informative and explained what he intended to do. We had a new aerial installed to service three rooms bedroom/lounge/kitchen. Very neat and tidy job. Would definetly recommend to family and friends.

I am sorry to hear that you are not happy but i would like to say that 20 promises of callouts was a slight exageration 3 by my account and each one was late afternoon appointments, and the last time we spoke was the thursday before easter bank holiday which i spent 2 hrs in a jam on the M6.
The installation which i carried out for you still works in the bedroom as this was done correctly, your problem is the kitchen which was carried out by someone else and used the existing cable in the wall which i explained to you was no good as there were multiple joins in it and the 9 volt tv link supply struggles to get through and the best option would be a re-cable which you declined due to the fact of the cable route which couldnt be hidden across your tiled kitchen floor, all i did was supply a tv eye for £20.00 as your other was broken the other cost are for the working tv link and cable its on your receipt. I will get someone to contact you local to come out and again try and fix it

Andy came out and did an initially excellent job but the installation has stopped working and we have had 20 promises of call out to have a look and fix.My wife waited in (taking time of work)on five separate occassions and on each occassion despite phone conversations on the day he did not turn up.
Don't be taken in by the assurances on after sales service.
We are going elsewhere and sending him the bill.If he doesn't pay a summons will follow.

When I 'phoned AERIAL-TEK I was given a time-slot for the job , and a clear indication of the cost. The fitter arrived within the time -slot, he got on with the job quickly, neatly and effectively. He was friendly and courteous. When I paid; it was the agreed amount, without quibble, and with no hidden extras. So; thank you for a good job, well done. J.J.Mason

Spoke to Andy on Friday afternoon and arranged to be at my house for 10.00pm Monday. Arrived dead on time to access whether I could get Freeview (as it can be a bit 'Hit & Miss' in the Rossendale Valley). He confirmed I could get it and he did the job there & then. Very knowledgeable & professional and at a very fair price.

Very highly recommended.
