I LOVE the guys from Honest Install:
My husband and I are do-it-yourselfers when it comes to most home projects so we don't hire folks much but this was a little out of our realm. So needless to say I had a lot of questions.
I first called Honest and was greeted by a very nice gentleman, he took the time to answer my questions on not one, but two phone calls.
We traded e-mails back and forth a few times and finally decided to go ahead cause their pricing was a bit less than some others we were considering and they sounded like they do this a lot.
They came out to wall mount our TV and install a surround sound system and from the looks of it it was not easy or something we could of done ourselves even in a weeks time!, Both guys took care of our home and cleaned up any mess before leaving were always polite answering yes ma'am, yes sir always. They walked us through everything with a written sheet so now I'm better at using our equipment than my husband! How empowering! What good is all this fancy stuff if you can't use it?
I read the review previous to mine and am not sure about their experience but mine was awesome, I have since referred two co-workers and they have both told me the same thing about their experiences. We will definitely have them back to do our bedroom soon. True professionals...

Honest Install, a Great Company:
I called Honest Install them after finding them on Google and looked at a few other websites. The guy at Honest educated me and explained that there are three other types of companies out there in their industry: 1. (Call Centers) - big box places that rotate you through like cattle, very impersonal. 2. (Internet Brokers) - they have glitzy websites and offer "nationwide service" cause they just book you're job then farm it out or assign it to a local sub contractor company in your area, whom they've never even met or talked to. Those guy are getting paid peanuts and want to get in and out ASAP! 3. (Craigslisters) these guys are often advertising very cheap prices but are often amateurs looking for soem easy money on the side and office out of their trunk, no warranties and good luck getting a hold of them if something needs attention afterwards!
I experienced all three of these types of "professional" over the years. I went ahead with Honest and they only asked for half of the quoted total, not 100% like those internet brokers wanted from me. And the fact that they are a real local company with in-house people put me at ease.
The install team that came out from Honest were very cool. They were funny and polite and the installation looks very clean no wires showing, they even helped me fix a problem with another TV that has been bugging us for years at NO charge. I ended up giving them a hefty tip to thank them. My girlfriend was very impressed and she's picky.
do not use honest install for your Flat panal TV mounting:
Expensive service for TV mountng, its about 50% more compared to other competitors! I would not recommand anyone to pay 50% more. With the price, I thought they will use special bracket and provide more services. Brackets are the same like you get anywhere and services was not very satifised! They are new to the area so I thought they will provide competitor pricing and good services but it was not the case. And all the picture they have on their websites does not mean that the owners have done those installations! Its like any website where they copy and paste images from the parent companies
