About

My name is David English I have over 20 years experience in this industry. I'm a very hard working trustworthy person and I would treat your property with the same respect that I would my own home.
Most of my work comes from word of mouth and I think that says a lot.
The main services that I provide are the installation of TV aerials and satellite dishes for Freeview and satellite TV (Sky and Freesat)
Before I worked in this industry I worked in the building trade, during this time I picked up a Lot of tips from the trade. This has helped me in many aspects of the services that I offer. Including the demand for people wanting their flat screen TVs hung on the wall, Cables discreetly hidden in the walls and cables put under the floorboards and so on.
Some of the other services that I offer include installing telephone, CAT5 , CAT6 data points.
Installing all your media and data cables during the first fix of your refurbishment then doing the final fix and a signal test at the end of the refurbishment.

I live in a block of flats and was having problems with poor reception on my TV. I have no idea about the set up of the tv aerial system in my block. David was meticulous tracing the cables through in looking for the amplifier which sadly we couldn't find before he decided on Plan B to install an external splitter and a new aerial point. Despite being busy he still left the place tidy.

New TV aerial

Just moved into a new property, and needed my TV able to receive Freeview, which involved fitting a new aerial and making all necessary connections. I've used David before, and as ever he was efficient, thorough and courteous. The work was done to schedule and within the estimate, and I now have excellent reception. I can thoroughly recommend David

Refixed satellite dish
Customer Service

I kept losing the satellite signal because the dish had been fixed into the wall pointing rather than the brick and it had worked loose. I contacted David and he came within a couple of days. He was pleasant and got on with the job quickly, finishing in half an hour or so. He removed the dish and then made stronger fixings in the brick work. He had a special machine for checking the strength of the signal. He also filled in the pointing which the old fixing had broken and fixed the neighbour's cabling back onto the wall - without being asked to do this. I was very satisfied with the job. It was reassuring to know that he is a specialist in this work. He's not cheap but he does a good job and he also has an assitant with him to hold the ladder etc.

My fathers satellite dish stopped working. I found David who managed to arrive the same day and complete the job fast and without any mess. He was polite and the price was competitive.

I used David to sort out the internet service in one of my properties and the Aerial TV point in my home . He is very knowledgeable, careful and did an excellent job over 2 visits . My tenants are delighted with the result especially as they are so dependent on the Internet with COVID 19, he also dealt with an issue at my home with a TV aerial point . I couldn’t have asked for a more efficient and professional service and would highly recommend him .

Digital aerial replacement and rewiring

David undertook a replacement of our old aerial with a new digital aerial and associated re-wiring and the TV is working better than it has in years, clear defined picture and brilliant reception. David quoted quickly and clearly, came when he said he would and undertook the work with proficient care and attention to detail, brilliant service well executed. His mobile number is now firmly in my phone directory and will be in others phones, as I recommend him and they do too!

I was hugely impressed with David from start to finish. When I called him via Checkatrade, he was really helpful on the phone. As I described the job to him, he asked great questions and offered to look up my property on Google Earth to see if what we were talking about was likely to work with the outside of the house (it involved running cabling outside). I was quite uncertain about the best way to proceed, but he gave great advice, all of it obviously focused on the best result for me rather than any consideration of more work for him. When he came and did the job, he was quick, professional and worked with a minimum of fuss. He installed two new ethernet points with relevant cabling and they work perfectly. I was very pleased with the price. I would definitely use David again.

Patience and knowledge
Because of the virus, David English helped talk me through accessing IPlayer by phone. He was very patient with my lack of knowledge of digital technology and extremely knowledgeable. He did not charge me anything as it was on the phone. I would recommend him to anyone.
