Looking for someone who can install a motorised dish for me as I'm not too good with heights.

I have all the cables/fixings and pole/brackets just waiting on a 85cm penta to be delivered. The Motor is a TM-2600 and the sat box is a TM5402.

I have a twin lnb and would like one feed running to the living room downstairs and one to a bedroom.

If anyone is interested in installing plz let me know.. thanks.

Anyone going to this job (,, to help '' ) be aware as if anything is wrong with His equipment , you got yourself a wasted jurney , not even travel expenses met ( agreed beforehand ) . Just happened to me .
His motor was duff , and had a brand new one with me to test otherwise .
Good luck with the installation .

Well you kinda left sharpish.. I would of gladly given something towards travel even though nothing of the job was done because of a faulty motor.. (not my fault)
you was also in the area (your words) to go to the airport so hardly a wasted journey considering im like a mile up the road from the airport
why didnt you speak to me first privately or at my house if you was unhappy
if anything i should be the one annoyed as i bought a so-called brand new motor that doesnt work and more messing about trying to get an exchange for that
like i said if u hadnt of left so quick and waited i would of given something towards your petrol even though nothing of the job was done.

I was going to the airport to pick my dad up , i had to be there at 4pm , i left your house at 11am after playing with your motor for half an hour to see if i can fix it . As you say 1 mile away ... anyway ...what would i hang around for , beg for £20 to cover half my petrol and 5 hours of my day wasted ... ...i for one am embarassed ... it is my fault for agreeing to come ( for that price anyway ) ... Lucky i didn't put the brackets on the wall , that would've been a right mess ...

So, what sort of mess have I walked into ?

Where did you buy the kit Albez, and have they replaced the motor ?

Btw, I am under five miles away

Mariust - What price did you quote before travelling 65 miles, with ladders and a spare seat in the van ?

So how much do you want Marius?

The price of the first quote was £200 which dropped to £120 after I said I wasnt interested... I also had my own ladders.

Marius kindly said he would do it for £150 if he held the ladder for me to do the work lol

If it makes him happy I will send him £20 petrol money by paypal.. I was gonna give him something but I thought he left quickly because he was embarrassed because he couldnt get the motor working.

Thx for the offer CH but someone on this forum has kindly offered to help and I will give them their asking price plus petrol and something to eat or whatever the heck makes the day go swimmingly

Right now I'm just annoyed because its all been a bit of a disater so far.. first had to return the receiver.. now the motor.. and u can bet if I get up that ladder I will end up falling on my arse.. anyways ive had enough for todays.. its all doing my head in now :-ohcrap

That kind of money is enough to get in a professional installer to install it properly, no messing about.

Mariust, in future it might be an idea to make your install price negotiations available on the thread.
