Free Home Visit & Professional Advice
Our free home visit service is for free quotations for new TV and satellite installations only. If you have an existing system a diagnostic charge will be applicable on any visit to your property, which will include a service of the system in place in an attempt to rectify the problem and provide advice on any replacements where necessary. All diagnostic & service charges are exclusive of VAT and any parts which may be required to rectify the problem.
We are happy to provide professional and impartial advice by telephone before visiting your property. However, this advice is subject to the information you provide us at the time of call and can alter upon a visit from an engineer. We are unable to provide fixed fees for any new products or installations as these vary depending on the property, signal and type of installation required. We do however, provide a base price for your information.
Call out time
We aim to visit your property within 24-48 hours of your booking. Unfortunately, factors out of our control may not make this possible. We will always inform you at the earliest opportunity if this is the case.
Mercury will not accept liability for loss of work or earnings if your appointment needs to be re-arranged.

Where stated, the Company is Mercury and the Customer shall mean any person, company or organisation that places an order with the company for goods and/or services.
The company will assess each job and estimate for the work considered to provide the best quality of reception signals. A further assessment may be attained on completion of the works and further recommendations made where appropriate.
The company, at its sole discretion, reserves the right to decline any work deemed unsafe.

The customer can purchase an extended warranty period in twelve monthly increments up to a maximum of 36 months. The extended warranty will only cover the installation carried out by the company, and will be separate from the manufacturers warranty on any equipment provided. We cannot provide extended warranties on any equipment.
The company cannot guarantee the quality of reception in your area and received by our equipment or installation. Reception depends on many factors but we will ensure the reception received is as good as local factors allow at the time of installation.
Where the digital signal received is below the levels recommended by the Codes of Practice, but the customer is satisfied with the installation and reception received, the company cannot be held responsible for the maintenance of these signals or quality under its normal guarantee terms.
The company will not provide guarantee or warranty on any equipment provided by the customer and installed by the company. Any further visits from the company due to faults in this equipment after installation may result in a chargeable call, which will be discussed and agreed before the company's visit.

You must keep the invoice in the event of a claim and provide to the company upon the visit of one of its installation engineers. There may be a delay if this document is not provided.
It is the customer's duty to ensure suitable permission from the owner/landlord/agent/organisation, and/or planning permission if necessary is obtained prior to installation work carried out by the company. The company will not be held responsible for any damage to the property if this has not been obtained and in the event of equipment supplied or installed requiring removing or re-positioning, extra charges will be incurred.
By instructing the company to proceed with any works as agreed, it is thought by the company the customer has sought the necessary permission as set out above.
Where possible, the company will minimise the amount of fixings and holes required for the installation. In the unlikely event of property damage potentially caused by us, the customer must notify the company within seven days of the invoice, in writing to the company's Head Office. Reasonable opportunity must be provided by the customer to the company to inspect the alleged property damage prior to repairs being carried out. The company will not be held for any liability for such damage unless this condition has been met.
In the unlikely event of a complaint made against the company, the customer must put their complaint in writing at their earliest opportunity. Upon receipt of this complaint, the company will endeavour to resolve the matter with seven days.
