Reviews

I wouldn't use anyone else!

We had a problem with our alarm system so we contacted Minster Alarms. The ladies in the office were very nice & very helpful. They suggested a couple of things to try over the phone to save us having to pay for an engineer to come out. Unfortunately we had to have an engineer out. Within a couple of hours the lovely man had fixed the alarm. Everyone was really nice to deal with, I still can't believe how quick someone could come out! I certainly wont hesitate in recommending them or using them again.

Had 3 cameras fitted over £1000, after the 1 year warranty ended 1 of the cameras started to fail. I contacted them and they suggested a few things to try. Unplug / recomnect etc. Now the camera isn't working at all. Called to book an engineer £100 for the first half an hour!
I wanted 3 more cameras putting in I'll be taking my business elsewhere

Extortionate!

We have used Minster Alarms for 10 years since moving into a house with one of their installed systems. Maintenance has seemed a bit pricey for just checking the sensors, main unit and battery were working - if they weren't the system would have notified us anyway. However, it came to a head recently when there was a fault with the main unit and we asked for a quote for the system to be upgraded.

While at our house the engineer gave an indication of the cost which seemed reasonable. However, when we got a formal quote it was over three times the price and equated to an hourly rate of about £180 per hour! I queried the quote and they reduced it a little bit but it still seemed very high.

Therefore, I looked at alternative suppliers and we proceeded with one of the other suppliers. Exactly the same system and parts as quoted for by Minster Alarms and total price just 40% of that quoted by Minster Alarms. Needless to say I have cancelled all further services from Minster Alarms!

Dear Mr Warman We are very unhappy to read your review of Minster Alarms. Without obviously going into the details about the quotation we provided, we feel we must respond to your comments about our extortionate "hourly rates" Our hourly labour rates are certainly not £180 per hour- very far from it! Your quotation was made up of both the cost of equipment and the labour required to install it. We are sorry you decided to have your work undertaken by a competitor after having been a customer for a long time. We only supply quality, reliable equipment, fitted at a fair rate, to the latest standards. All our new installations are given a full warranty and benefit from access to 24 hour emergency engineering response. We would like to thank you for your previous custom and are sorry you felt the need to leave such a review of our company.
