Does E* Charge more for a pole mount as opposed to mounting to your house? Thanks.
i was quoted 50.00 for a pole mount.:lol:
Really? I've had 3 different dishes installed on poles, and I never heard anything about an extra charge. When I got my superdish a couple years ago, the guy had to replace the original pole and pour concrete and everything. I recently got a Dish 1000 and for some reason the guy made the pole a little taller. Anyway, I'd question the installer on that one. Or maybe I've just gotten lucky
A lot of charges are up to the installer. Some eat charges to make happy customers - others can't eat the charges because they are not making enough on the install.
Pole mount. Sounds painful. Like the Pole Sitter in NASCAR. Ouch.
We were not charged for our pole mount. However, the installer did such a crappy job that it fell over within 6 months.
The pole was less than 1 foot into the ground and less than 3 inches of cement was used.
You get what you pay for...
Not really. I didn't pay anything, and the installer I had a couple years ago did an excellent job. I think it depends more on a) getting an installer who knows what he/she is doing, and b) cares enough to apply that knowledge correctly. I guess that goes for just about every step of a dish install.
Like James Long said, whether to charge and how much is probably up to each individual installer.
