Welcome to my Checkatrade page. 
My name is Dave Hale and I trade under the name of G-Tec (General Technical). I have been running my business for over 14 years and I absolutely love my work!
I think this shows, too, in the way I go about my activities and the feedback I get from my customers. Everything I do is with a genuine, positive approach and I enjoy solving some of the trickier problems and installations.
I am an approved trader with the Trading Standards Buy with Confidence scheme. My outlook is always good and positive. 
MY LOFT installed STEALTH/RAPTOR AERIALS come with a LIFETIME GUARANTEE and most of my other work will have a 3 YEAR GUARANTEE, so confident am I of my standard of work. I carry out fault finding, service and installation in: 

  • Digital TV Aerials
  • TV wall mounting (a speciality)
  • DAB and FM Radio antennas
  • Sky Satellite and Free sat
  • Telephone fault finding
  • Rewires and points
  • Broadband problems 
  • Broadband setup and fault finding
  • Cat5 and Cat6 Ethernet cabling 
  • Home Cinema Surround systems
  • TV and AV equipment setup

I am an approved trader for the many local letting and estate agents and regularly carry out work for them. I provide an excellent level of customer service which always comes with a smile and sense of humour.
Due to an unprecedented amount of late cancellations, I will be making a charge of 20% of the cost of the quoted cost if a customer cancels with less than 48 hours notice, as it makes it very difficult to try to fill the spot at such short notice.
