Television antenna services in Australia have an average price of $80/hr. This amount usually covers basic jobs like installations or repairs, but if your antenna problem is more complicated than that, your sparkie will have to work harder and charge higher rates. For minor jobs, you can expect to pay TV antenna specialists around $75/hr.
Sandy of New South Wales paid $260 to have an antenna installed on the roof of her home. The price covered supply and installation.
Wil, on the other hand, paid a business $90 to reattach his TV antenna that fell off during a storm in Western Australia.
Will you save more if you pay per project?
On average, a standard TV antenna service costs about $211.64. However, this only applies to jobs that are pretty straightforward — no complicated installations or difficult repairs. If a part needs to be replaced, you’ll have to shell out some more for that.
Beyond installing antennas: Added costs that increase total price
Antenna repair and installation are not the only services that you can get from antenna specialists. They can also do tune-ups and checkups to ensure high-quality reception for your home entertainment system. That is why it’s important to note that costs will change depending on the type of service you need and other specific factors such as:
The quality and size of the TV antenna
Like other electronic devices, TV antennas come in different brands and sizes. Some have better features than others. Those with more sophisticated technology are usually more expensive, and they can definitely drive up your total expenses.
Installing an indoor antenna in your attic is hard because you need to connect the coax cable to your television. The difficulty of doing this task will naturally result in a higher labour cost.
Use of remote control rotor
A remote control rotor makes it easier to position a TV antenna, even in hard-to-reach locations. In using this equipment, your tradie can increase the total cost of their service.
Cost of antenna services per state
In New South Wales, the average cost of antenna services is $82.50/hr. This is only a bit higher than the rates of antenna experts in Victoria and South Australia, which is approximately $80/hr.
Meanwhile, Queenslanders seem to be getting the most bang for their buck with antenna services averaging at only $75/hr.
