TV Wall Mount Installation For A New 3D Television

Just recently, I bought a new Panasonic 3D TV. It is a 42 inch Panasonic TX-P42GT50 which was on sale and I had been planning to make the purchase for some time. Since I love to play games on my PS3, I was actually looking for a cheap 3D TV so that I could enjoy my games and occasional 3D movies from time to time. So I didn’t have to think twice when I saw the TV on sale. However, it was much more difficult for me to find a TV wall mount installation service than it was to buy the TV and bring to my house. TV wall mounts have been modified as televisions have changed in shape, size and weight. The days when you just bought a random wall mount and installed it on your own with a drill machine are long gone. My new TV is very large and heavy as well. If I had a smaller TV like a 20 or 22 inch, I probably could have handled it on my own. However, when I was going through all the details, I realised that it was almost impossible for me to install the TV on my own. The job needed a heavy duty wall mount, a powerful drill machine and lots of other tools, not to mention the experience required. So I decided that my best bet was to seek professional help. 

Unfortunately, getting a technician to install a TV wall mount quickly and inexpensively is not that easy. Initially, I looked for them on the internet, hoping to find a cheap quote. However, once I made a search on Google with different keywords like ‘TV wall mount installation’, I didn’t get as many results as I expected I would. At this point, one of my friends told me that I should look for people who also provide TV antenna installation services, since many of them also provide wall mount installation solutions for TVs. However, I live in a remote place and it was really tough for me to get an appointment with them. Sometimes you might need to wait a couple of days for the wall mount technicians to arrive at your doorstep and this really wasn’t an option for me. Further, the rate of the service varies depending on which company you go with, and I found it difficult to find one that I was happy with.

With all these things to decide, I was a little bit puzzled and decided to call one of my cousins for help. He told me that the guys at the TV shops could help me out on this. So I made a call to a shop he suggested and luckily they had a technician who was available. So the technician came to my house, installed the wall mount, and hanged the TV in no time. And he was also very helpful in fixing my digital antenna as well, so I’m getting many more channels and couldn’t be happier.
