Choosing a DStv installer can be a little daunting – especially if you are not sure what to look for when making your selection. With a growing number of unaccredited, inexperienced installers out there offering deals that seem too good to be true, it may be tempting to go with the cheapest option rather than shop around.
The trouble with this approach is that you may end up with an installer who is not able to give you any guarantee or peace of mind that the installation will be done properly. You may save initially, but if something goes wrong, you could end spending far more trying to fix a poorly done DStv installation. In this guide, we share some of the ways that you don’t want to choose a DStv installer.
Wrong Ways to Choose a DStv Installer
To make sure that you find a DStv installer who is able to get the job done properly without any issues, here are a few things not to do.
Choosing by price alone.
Everyone loves a good deal. There is a big difference between affordable and cheap, however. Affordable installation means getting a good service at a reasonable price. Cheap means getting the most basic service with no assurance of quality, professionalism or reliability. Don’t take the risk of going with the cheapest option. It is seldom worth the reduced price and you may be more out of pocket if the installation is not done according to best practices.
If you are not using a DStv accredited installer, you will have little to no guarantee that you are getting genuine products and professional service. Accreditation is there for a reason – to be sure that installers are legally permitted to sell and install DStv products. Be very wary of installers who do not have accreditation. If something goes wrong, you won’t have the benefit of warranty and replacement or repairs will be expensive and time-consuming.
This is true for any product or service. Testimonials are important as well but reviews give you a no-nonsense insight into what customers think about the products or services you are considering. In the case of installers, you will be able to know whether the provider you are considering has the experience and expertise needed to get the job done by seeing what others have to say. This is the best way to know whether your installer of choice is the right option.
