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 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.

David delivered a very professional service. He helped us to mount a tv on the wall and the installation of a new speaker while concealing all the wires. The end result is very neat. David was always punctual, polite and very efficient. He was at all times a great communicator and as someone who is very uncomfortable with technology, he made the whole installation experience a very comfortable one. In my opinion, David's customer service has been one of the best that I have ever experienced in this country.

I employed this Company on the basis that it was a sole trader, who had received excellent reviews, rather than having an anonymous person employed by a large company. The work was to fit a TV wall mount and attach the TV. Connect 2 TV's to Sky Q and tune an old TV to receive the new services. I found the company to be professional, reliable clean and tidy. David is a good communicator, which I appreciated. I thought the price for the work to be very reasonable.

New aerial fitted

I asked David to check my decades-old aerial and replace it with a new one. He responded quickly with a quotation, arrived on time on the agreed day and was very considerate of my house, removing shoes, using dustsheets and moving any furniture that might have been caught by ladders being carried in and out. He also asked me exactly where I wanted the new aerial sited. From the street the aerial and the cabling looks very neat (the TV works too!). The bill came in at the low end of his quotation range and he even repaired some broken flashing he noticed while on the roof! Highly recommended!

Writing as a retired architect. David installed a new replacement aerial. The whole event was totally professional and stress free. The work is meticulous, the price fair and reasonable, and it was a pleasant experience. David also sorted out the Smart TV loaded with an Asia only geo-setting, and went through wall mounting and concealed wiring options for later on. He also helped our elderly neighbour with his connection problems gratis. In short professional service at it's very best.
