A good professional service. This company is both helpful and reliable. I called them out with an odd problem with digital reception that I had had for some time. Dave arrived and very professionally identified the problem and solved it. It contrasted hugely with the cowboy that I had phoned 6 months before. I can thoroughly recommend DDaerials. Derek S., Coventry.

Trustworthy, very friendly and an excellent service. Dave went out of his way to make sure I was happy with everything he had done.

Thanks to Richard for a great job. Richard arrived and discussed work that we needed and everything was completed swiftly and tidily. Price was good value and we are really pleased. Mark.

First class service. i made a quick call to arrange for a free quote and an engineer named Richard turned up 30 minutes later. No fuss no hassle didn’t mind working later to get job done, just over 1 hour later new aerial,cable and position, no mess and a brilliant picture, will recommend Richard, 5 stars to him and the team.

Dave and Luke are two amazing men. They attended my dads early in the day,the tv seemed to be ok. After they left the picture was unwatchable so dad phoned for another call out. As it was quite late he was told it would have to be another day. Totally unexpected they turned up at the end of the day after finishing their other jobs. What great service and lovely people. Joy & William Purvis.

Highly recommended.. David and Luke were highly professional in the work that they did and were able to complete the task in the time that they said they would. Guy, Solihull.
