My name is Dave Hale and I trade under the name of G-Tec (General Technical). I have been running my business for over 15 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 positive. 

My work is covered by 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
  • Wifi points
  • Cat5e and Cat6 Ethernet cabling
  • 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.
If you leave a voice message or send an email, please remember that at busy times I may not be able to get back to you in under 24 hours as I am out working and it's just myself at the helm. My working days are Monday to Friday, and I may attend what I deem to be an urgent call out on Saturdays, at my discretion. Many thanks.

Payment is taken on the day on completion of the day's work by cash, cheque, or Faster Payment bank transfer, so please do not expect to pay at a later date. Thank you.
