It went very well. I am pleased with the work. The owner C.J. is smart, funny, and amusing. He really listened to what I needed and wanted. The day they finished the work the owner was not there and they did not correctly set up my subwoofer so I had to redo that and figure it out. I know if I had called C.J. he would have immediately taken care of it. He and Kenny have the nice old school mentali...

Made an appointment with them for an evening time around 6:30.  No one ever showed up or called to say they were not able to make it out.  On top of that, no call the next day.  Bad business practices to lose costumers.  When calling in, their operation seemed disorganized from the start because when I was transferred to schedule the appointment, it was handed off poorly and they had to then have ...

Purchased $200 coupon on Angie's List. Job cost an additional $582 for total of $782. Set agreed upon date of install and provided details via email. Afternoon prior to install date, C.J. (Owner) asked to stop by for quick review. Realized that a sturdier mount was needed due to age of tv. Ordered mount immediately. Mount would end up stretching the job an extra day due to weather related delays e...

UPDATE on 10 Feb 2015: The provider did call me to acknowledge that he reviewed his invoice and realized he did not reduce the final billing by the work for the closet in the original estimate that was canceled.  He refunded the money for the task that was not accomplished.  I adjusted the ratings to reflect the refund. PREVIOUS UPDATE:  I read the provider's response and we didn't have a problem ...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Wire Monkey did several tasks on the day of service: I moved a cable box from one room to another that was already wired for cable TV, but for some reason could not get a picture--wire monkey would look at that; in another room I had a flat screen TV already mounted with TV wires in the wall and earlier I added a sound bar, so I wanted wire monkey to put the sound bar wires in the wall also; in a hall closet I had all our receiver/surround sound equipment on the floor and we going to get a rack for wire monkey to put all the equipment on a rack.  We had a wall mounted TV in the master bedroom that need to be moved up higher on the wall, so wire monkey would have to take the TV down and move the mount up higher.  CJ gave me an estimate of around $1,060 to $1,070--I can't remember exactly.  It seemed a little high, so I said you are planning on around 10 hours of work to complete the job and he said yes (figuring at the most $100 an hour, since that was what his site showed for non-discount coupon work).  Then before he left we also settled on changing out my IR all-in-one remote for a RF all-in-one remote.  I asked him how much that remote would be and he said $300-350.
