Highly recommend Digital Direct. From office/admin to engineer, highly professional organisation, a pleasure to deal with. ‘No name’. Warwick 30th July 2019.

Family run business … pleasure to deal with … slick, fair and transparent … perfect job. DSlick booking process, really personable (Sarah) and Dave who came to mount my new TV above the fireplace was such a smooth operator. Clearly articulated what he was going to do and how much it would cost, fitted and finished with minimal fuss and actually understood the products I had so was able to offer advice about features I didn’t know the TV had! Will 100% use again. Sam, Hadnall, 1st June 2019.

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.

Excellent Response and Service I live in an apartment complex in Solihull where our communal television service failed affecting about twenty residences. Digital Direct juggled their workload so they were able to visit our complex in the morning after the problem occurred and restored the service.

Rob was prompt, cheerful and courteous and solved the problem of the tv. We would certainly recommend this company. Maureen, Stourport, 31st May 2019.

I’m a repeat customer and requested Mark to sort my Ham radio antenna as he did such an excellent job last year, hence my return. I genuinely cannot rate these guys enough, excellent service, prompt and very professional all the way. Will be back again soon with my next project. Thanks Mark and the girls in the office that sorted my request. Well done guys, Regards and thanks, Dean, Solihull, 12th October 2019.

I used these guys just over 12 months ago, so a year on and they have been true to their reputation. They have supported me throughout the 14/15 months, no surprising charges, fast and efficient, in particular Jay and Mark. I have no hesitation in recommending their service or using them for further work. FairAndSquare, 9th August 2019.

Excellent service from start to finish. Within the hour Mark arrived, and on entering the house immediately took his shoes off. Good start. We suggested it might be an aerial problem as our aerial is at least 30 years old. We were told that he wasn’t going to sell us an aerial if we didnt need one, and he wanted to trace the problem back first. The problem was soon located, a dodgy co-ax connection, following some building work we had had done, by an electrician. Within the hour the picture quality and strength we all back and working fine. No new aerial required. How refreshing these days to find a company who do not just want to sell you something you don’t need but actually fix the problem. Mark was very polite and courteous and gave us some advice on a couple of other issues to. Would not hesitate to recommend both Mark and the company. Mike.

Great job done by Digital Direct. Both times Mark did a great job. Will use again in the near future when some building work is complete. Keith, Coventry, 24th April 2019.
