James showed up on time and performed the tasks (tv,soundbar mounting and nest installs) to my satisfaction. He also set up my multi-room sound system for a very reasonable amount. I highly recommend him and will use him again.Apr 30, 2019Verified
James did a wonderful job mounting and concealing wires for my two 55” TVs (one on concrete over a fire place). I will definitely use James again for another tv mounting gig!Jan 19, 2019Verified
Wasn't sure what to expect since this is the first time I had used Thumbtack. He showed up on time and was very friendly. He didn't mind answering any question I had. Made me glad, I choose to use him. The TV was mounted onto my fireplace and looks nice. Centered, and even, both things I don't think I would manage :).Jan 28, 2019Verified
James does incredible work and I would recommend anyone hire him to mount a tv. He went above and beyond for me and treats every job as if it was his own home.Apr 14, 2019Verified
I normally don't post reviews, but this causes for one. Yesterday I was looking online to fine someone to mount my television. I looked for a good while, until I came across James Polk. I messaged him asking questions specifically about my TV, and the process. I wanted it done fast, I'm having company over and I didn't want my 65 inch on the floor. Not only did he reply fast and professionally, he was able to get to me in 20 minutes. Literally I booked, and within a half hour he was getting to work. He was in and out, and every single part of the process was flawless. Please use this guy, you will definitely be glad you did.Mar 2, 2019Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?If you think what you need done is less than a typical install, message me the details of what needs to be done and the price can be negotiated. For example, everything is already connected and you are just changing out a tv. If I don’t have to run any new cables through the wall, I won’t charge you to do it. I typically charge $100 to mount a television onto Sheetrock if client has all parts which usually includes TV mount and cables. I can provide mounts and cables, but prices vary depending on the type of mount and length of cables. $25 to conceal wires in wall. I also conceal wires on the surface using a wire channel and include it at no additional charge. That is a cost that I eat, because I want every single one of my jobs to look professional. Most installers don’t include this in their price and don’t even offer it.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?When you are ready to book, go to my website at ucontrolmedia.com and click on book to choose a service and pick a time and day that is available. If you want to book multiple TV’s, please message me so that I can add additional TV’s as well as a discount. Once booked you are set! I like to meet the client ready to do the work that I was hired for. I like to make recommendations that will make the clients experience better. Once I realize exactly what the client wants I begin the work.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have worked for Bestbuy and Geek Squad home theater installation for 15 years. I have experience in all aspects of home theater installation.
