If you have the tools to do the work thats fair enough, in my case, I didn’t have the tools and did the math about renting the tools, buying the anchor and then buying all of the other kit I’d need to get it installed and it was marginal as to how much the difference would have been. I guess it also depends on what kind of anchor you are getting fitted, in my case it mean drilling through the ground and digging a foot into the ground to get it set.
As i said in the original post, its a good service that represents value in my opinion.
I had the anchor-man around this weekend to fit a ground anchor for me in the new flat. He was a sound fella and a biker too which is great! It was a fairly hefty ground-anchor and he did a great job. He arrived when he said he would and then did a superb job getting the anchor fitted and its all happy days.
I’d definately recommend the service, I thought it represented good value for the money too.
Blimey I wish life was that simple! Before I knew of Anchor Man I bought a Ground Hog 6 and a big expensive drill bit from Homebase that was designed for concrete. Happily set up my Bosch drill and extension lead, started the 3 holes with smaller bits then worked up to the biggie. An hour later I still hadn’t finished the first hole! Using my girlfriends Black and Decker was no improvement but I persevered for another 2 hours. Luckily this was at the front of the house and a neighbour who I didn’t know saw and took pity on me and lend me his industrial drill which looked more like a machine gun! Ended up destroying that but succeeded after a total of 4 hours!
If I had known of Anchor Man at the time, I would definitely have got him to do the job. He would have saved me all this trouble and the anchor would have been a lot more secure.
