Here are just a few of our many satisfied customers who were so impressed with the quality and standard of our service that they took the time to write and tell us...

''Dear Steve,

I have just had a visit from your engineer, Chris Thornton, who I must praise as he listened to all of the problems we have then decided the best way to resolve them to suit our requirements. He didn’t come here with pre-conceived ideas and solutions. As a consequence of his actions, everything throughout the house works perfectly. The Sky HD has been set up beautifully, the sky to the other TVs within our home now work perfectly. The picture throughout is crystal clear. At all times Chris explained in detail what he was doing and why, at no time were we in the dark at all. We also have a satellite system geared up to receive swiss TV from Hotbird, which I had assumed needed a new box to get it working properly. He identified a failing HDMI output and by simply swapping over to scart ,has restored the picture to its original standard and saved me a lot of money in the process. He is a credit to your company..

Kind regards,''

Julien Cooper

''Dear ASTEC,

On Wednesday 22nd your Engineer came to sort out my TV signal problems. I just want to say what a nice, polite, helpful fellow. He took the time to explain the “workings” of the Internet Box etc. If asked I shall certainly recommend your Company. Unfortunately I forgot to ask his name. He came to me at approx. 1:30pm.

''Hello Steve,

This is just to say how pleased we both were with the service you gave us recently.

Chris your engineer made a super job of fitting the satellite dish for Freesat viewing, and went into great depths to explain how the Humax H D PVR receiver worked which was also installed, the whole installation was done painlessly and efficiently. It was a pleasure to have Chris in our home, I was really impressed that he took the time to cover his feet with carpet protectors, which was quite thoughtful as we have a light coloured carpet, and also swept away any dust that was made.

Once again congratulations to you and your staff, I would have no problems with recommending your company to anyone.

Many thanks''

Jan and Ron Francis, Basildon

''I would like to commend Andy W. (Van 1) who installed our FreeSat dish.

He came to give us a quote on Thursday evening. He patiently answered many questions and clearly knew his business. He then appraised the job and shortly returned with a neat, detailed, written quotation which included the firm's terms of business.

I had previously been impressed by the firm’s website and decided to look no further.

On Monday, as arranged, Andy turned up at the agreed time. He had clearly listened carefully to what I hoped that he would be able to do and took some trouble to achieve it. (as opposed to a simpler fix). Though running a little late, he still took time to give basic instruction on the new set-up.

The work was carried out neatly and cleanly. My wife was very pleased that Andy used shoe-covers whenever he came in from outside working.

Both of us were very impressed by his pleasant nature and we would recommend him and your firm to others who needed similar work done.''

Yours faithfully, P.G. BLATCHFORD

''Just a quick note of thanks for the prompt and excellent service.

I spoke to Laura on Thursday regarding upgrading my Sky+ to Sky HD and was told I could get it installed on the Saturday (and at a great price). I didn't book the install at the time as I didn't know when my screen was being delivered.

On the Friday I took delivery of the screen so phoned Laura again and to my surprise you could still do the install on the Saturday between 12 and 3. Andy W (Van 1) turned up at 11:30 and was gone by 12:30, all done and now I'm able to enjoy the benefits of the screen. A few teething problems (all down to Sky you'll be pleased to know) but I had the same sort of problems when I had Sky+ installed.

Once again, thank you for the excellent service and should anyone ask me for an independent installer I will definitely recommend ASTEC.''

Andy Fisher, Essex

''Thank you for your prompt visit today to attend to our aerials. The picture quality shows a significant improvement. Thank you & for Andy's (Van 3) polite services.''

John Fogwill, Billericay

''Thank you for sorting out the aerial problem so quickly for me. I would like to praise the professionalism of Astec, from yourself, the lady who called on Saturday and Chris who did the work on site. Chris is clearly an asset to Astec.

Thank you once again.

Best wishes and regards.''

John Brooks, Canvey Island

''I recently had cause to have a replacement aerial fitted after storm damage to my property. I rang a number of companies but was unhappy with the poor level of service that appeared to be on offer and some of the seemingly opportunistic prices that I was quoted.

I would like to say thank you for the prompt and courteous service that I received having contacted your company. In particular I would like to thank your employee that carried out the work, a gentleman named Steve, and wonder if you would pass on my thanks.

In a society where customers are often treated as second class citizens I do not usually find myself drawn to sitting down and writing thank you letters but feel in this case the work undertaken justifies just that.

My grateful thanks once again.''

Tracy Vallis, Benfleet

''Hi Steve and Team, You came round today and fitted a SKY + box at short notice and we wanted to just thank you.

We have been burgled so as you know our life is upside down at the moment. You have helped us claw a little closer to getting it all back to normal. Thank you VERY much for your help.

Kind Regards''

Bradley Porter, SaneChoice Limited

''I would like to commend you on your staff. Thankyou very much for sending a very polite, friendly great guy to sort out our aerials.

Would recommend your company and Chris happily to anyone.''

Mrs Emma Miller, Southend-on-Sea

''Dear Steve,

I have received your invoice for works carried out at North Mill Place, Halstead to design, supply and fit an upgraded communal TV system to full IRS and have forwarded it to accounts department for direct payment.

May I take this oppurtunity of thanking you for your dedication in solving the various technical obstacles that presented themselves during the course of the installation. May I also commend you and your workers for the consideration shown to Residents by minimizing disruption to their homes when access was required. Your neat, quiet and professional approach to the works in progress has been praised by all Residents affected.''

Jacky Beagles, East Regional Manager, Hadlow


Just a quick note to say thanks for the job Chris did yesterday. Reception is now spot on and we're really pleased with not only the end result but the whole expierience of dealing with your company.''

Dean Hallem

''I am somebody who will complain about bad service but who will also praise good service. Regarding the installation that was carried out for me Thursday last which I wish to let you know that I am very pleased with the work that was carried out. The young man that did the work was on time, most helpful with advice and did a nice neat job. Also thanks to you for your e-mail advice. I like to use local companies where possible and it is nice to know of one that I can feel secure about recommending to others.

Many Thanks.''

Derek Benbrook

''Hello Steve

Just a few lines to thank you for your patience and guidance when deciding the best aerial for our needs. Also, we wish to commend Andy W (van1) and his mate who installed it for us. They were pleasant, polite, very professional and carried out a neat and clean job. They considered our home too by wearing shoe covers every time they walked in from outside.

We would certainly recommend (A(S(T(E(C to anyone, thanks again for an excellent service.

Mr & Mrs Curtis ''


I felt that I must congratulate Andy and your organisation for your excellent service. He is all I look for in his knowledge, he knows what he is talking about, he is polite and tidy in his work and does an excellent job.
I will recommend your company to anyone that I hear that needs your services. I have already spoken to Currys at Chelmsford who are thinking of changing their satellite installer. I hope that you hear from them.

Please use this as a reference if you need to.

HI there
Please can you add the following feedback to your website?
Excellent service! I phoned on a Saturday morning and Chris arrived at lunchtime – he was very helpful, explained exactly what needed to be done. He installed a new aerial, re-tuned the TV’s and had wonderful blue disposable ‘slippers that he put on every time he came into the house. Astec were recommended to me and now I want to recommend them to anyone looking for great customer service, a reliable company and an honest price!!!!
. I hope you are able to publish this? – I checked to see if I could leave feedback or whether you have a FB page so please confirm receipt of this email and its request??
Kind regards
