Car Stereo and Alarm Installation
Not into "do it yourself" car stereo installations? No problem. You can have your new Car Stereo, Amplifier, Speakers, Subwoofer and even a new Car Alarm installed at our Penrose Workshop by one of our experienced in-house technicians.
Installation starts at $79 per hour. A basic Head Unit installation is $89 + any additional parts that may be required (fitting kit, aerial adapter etc.)
Workmanship is warranted for as long as you own the vehicle.
This installation does not cover modifications to your vehicle. If modifications are required, you may be charged extra for parts and labor at the time of installation.
We will inform you of any additional charges before performing the work, so you can approve the charges.
Some possible extra charges may include:
-Your new stereo requires an antenna that must be mounted on the exterior of your vehicle.
-The factory wiring or dashboard have been cut or damaged as the result of a previous non-professional installation, or theft.
-Your factory amplified system (Bose, Harman Kardon, McIntosh etc.) requires bypassing and extra wiring harnesses.
-No installation kit is available for your vehicle, and the installer is required to fabricate a custom-mounting bracket.
-Your vehicle has factory steering-wheel controls, and you'd like your new in-dash stereo to work with them.
-Your vehicle requires optional mounting brackets or significant, additional labor due to a complex dash diassembly/reassembly process.
-Your vehicle has an existing non-working alarm which needs to be removed prior to any work being carried out.
-Warranty: limited lifetime.
