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.

David's approach was faultless, couldn't ask for more. He reinstated a long lost TV reception for my elderly and distinctly non-technical relative with great patience, explaining issues as he worked. I unreservedly recommend.

Efficient, reliable, helpful. And nice! My TV aerial packed up. David sorted it quickly and easily. Options and pricing were clearly quoted beforehand. I then needed a CAT cable running up to my loft, and fast (in the middle of building works) - despite being fully booked, he squeezed me in. I'd recommend him and would use him again without hesitation.

David did the work to budget and schedule. He clearly knew what he was doing right from the start-even if I did not! While he was happy to explain anything I asked I felt that his explanations were a bit rushed the first time he came though that was partly because I gave him a deadline which he had not expected. After his second visit I was starting to feel more comfortable with the setup though Sky still had to complete their side of the work. David was always polite, punctual, helpful and tidy. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.

Replaced the indoor cable, which had been cut when a door frame was replaced. Diagnosed the problem and re-routed the cable through the door frame and around the room to be as unobtrusive as possible. Removed the old cable and left the room clean and tidy. A professional, helpful and friendly service.

David English of ENGLISH INSTALLATIONS assessed where an updated Virgin Media WIFI system and telephones would need to be installed. He arranged to bring the necessary cable and equipment to upgrade the existing system. He provided an estimate of the cost via email and we agreed to proceed. Mr English arranged the date for upgrading the system and arrived promptly, worked efficiently, explained exactly what he was doing as the work progressed. We found Mr English focused, helpful--especially as we are not up-to-date about the current WIFI and telephone technology. He told us to get back to him with any queries or problems. So far, so good! But should we need to contact him with questions--etc--he said he would be happy to be available.

We have used David English twice now in the last 6 months to install/setup internet in our house. On each occasion he has been outstanding in terms of experience, knowledge and ability, costs and helpfulness. Wouldn't hesitate to use him again.

David was very prompt in his response. Initially, he tried to help over the phone but when that did not work, he came and found the problem which he solved quickly. He is polite and was careful to wear a mask inside the house.

David replaced my terrestrial and satellite aerials/dishes, mounted them in a new better location, and installed 5 new TV points throughout the house. He worked quickly and effectively, and was both tidy and friendly. The charge was exactly what he had estimated, and I would unhesitatingly recommend him. The market in aerial replacement/installation is in my experience often like the Wild West, with false estimates, broken appointments, and shoddy work. I'm glad I found English Aerials!

My mother lost her TV reception last week. I telephoned Mr English on her behalf. He diagnosed the problem accurately and promptly and it was resolved the very same day. He was extremely courteous, helpful, competent and efficient and I cannot recommend him highly enough.
