So you just spent a lot of money on a new television, a wall mount, and you get it home and… now what? Are you going to mount the TV yourself or hire a professional to help you? Of course, mounting it yourself seems like the savvy option. You take a few hours at the weekend and you don’t have to spend more money.
However, how often do your DIY projects go that smoothly? More importantly, do you ever enjoy it? It always seems so simple before you start but once you actually get into the how of getting the thing fixed on the wall, your plan starts to crumble. For a start, the TV you’ve bought is 50” and there’s no way you can lift it onto the wall alone.

So you enlist the help of a friend, get it up on the wall, throw yourself down onto the couch and realize… it’s crooked. You either take the TV down and it sits on the floor for a month before you have the heart to give it another go, or you learn to watch the screen with your head at an angle.
Another thing you need to consider before you start drilling holes is what will happen if you get it wrong and damage your home. Whether you’re renting or you own your home, it’s going to be a costly problem. Can you imagine getting it wrong? You’ve spent your hard-earned money on a new TV, attempted to attach it to the drywall when it all comes crashing down TV, mount, and wall. Ouch.
Hiring a Professional TV Installer
Hiring a professional will take the stress out of the process. They’ve done it a thousand times and can do it fast and get out of your way so you actually get to have your Saturday. They’ve seen everything, so it doesn’t matter how big the television or how complicated the wall mount is, they’re going to be unphased by your challenge.
When you hire a pro all you have to do is have the TV and wall mount ready to go, they’ll bring all the tools they need. They’ll attach it to the wall so it doesn’t damage your home or fall off the wall entirely. They get it right the first time, and if anything unexpected happens they’ll have guarantees, warranties and/or insurance, unlike when you decide to do it yourself.
