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 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?

No ones on about drilling the flue liner, Mick was worried about stuff falling down the chimney when drilling and blocking the flue.I think the flue liner would stop that happening but what I know about building you could write on a stamp.Tom Fletcher Alpha Aerials,

Mazbar: Some companies don't sell you what you need, they sell you what they can sell you. Come to think of it, that's what MOST UK companies do.

Presumably the selling is to get you to get your MOT/Aerial from them nor some one else?

Steve the only selling is there advert when you call them you are calling a call center so no real selling there the only selling is when there rigger comes to someones house and sells them a high gain aerial when a standard aerial would have done
