Installation Policy


Reliable and Professional Installation Service


Cygnal Ltd operate in and around the North East and surrounding areas. For installs out of this area, please contact us before making any online bookings.

All of our engineers are FITAS registered and work to a strict industry code of practice, FCS 1362. This code ensures that our customers get the best quality workmanship and gives peace of mind that the engineer carrying out the install has been trained correctly.

Standard vehicle installation works can be arranged via our online service. Simply click on the relevant link above depending on the service you require.  Should you want any other service, or prefer speak to us directly, please call us on 0191 5172889.

We usually require four to five working days notice to arrange an installation at your home or our workshop, however this is dependent on engineer and product availability. Our appointments are scheduled by AM or PM arrival times. Please let us know if a more precise time is needed.

Standard installations usually take around 60-90 minutes, more technical installations can take longer.

​The following procedures will be adhered to on arrival, during and after the install:

  • Pre-installation vehicle check

  • Product location discussion/recommendation

  • Installation of the required kit

  • No holes will be drilled to vehicle dashboards unless necessary and agreed

  • Electrical connections made correctly in accordance with FCS 1362 with correct fuses

  • Seamless integration utilising the correct parts so the integrity of your vehicle’s electrics is not compromised.

  • Antenna installation (if required) as per manufacturer installation instructions

  • Demonstration of the kit and post installation vehicle check

Dash Cameras - important information

Some vehicles, e.g. Skodas and Volvos, might experience radio problems with a dash camera install. The DAB radios can be overly susceptible to interference, causing loss of signal in low signal areas.

Our engineers can install a filter which usually fixes the issue, however is not a guaranteed solution.

Sometimes, it is unavoidable.  It is not a fault of the camera or the installation. Rather, it's the weak DAB signal combined with a susceptible car radio and aerial proximity to the camera. In the event of this, if the dash camera was supplied by us, you can request a return of the dash camera and credit will be issued for the cost of the product.

PLEASE NOTE: when deinstalling dash cameras which weren't originally fitted by Cygnal, we cannot be held responsible for any damage caused due to incorrect materials used during the installation (i.e. bonding glue, aged adhesive pads or faulty wiring)


Please inform us at least 24 hours in advance if you cannot attend your appointment. Your appointment might be cancelled if you arrive more than 15 minutes after your allotted time.


Please be advised that a cancellation fee of 50% of the installation price may be charged in the following cases:


  • Access to the vehicle is not possible for reasons beyond our control

  • Less than 24 hours’ notice is received to change the appointment date

  • If cover is not available in poor weather conditions (home installations only) and the installer decides that the installation needs to be cancelled (for your vehicle's protection)

  • The vehicle has a defect which, in the opinion of the installer, means that the installation cannot go ahead

  • If you arrive to your appointment more than 15 minutes late or fail to show at all.

Car specific parts may not be refundable.


If our engineer is delayed due to reasons out of our control, we are in no way liable or obliged to provide compensation. Any suspected damage to the vehicle during an installation must be acknowledged, proven and agreed with the installer before he leaves site. Otherwise, we cannot be held responsible for damage found at a later date.


If any vehicle faults occur near where we have fitted items, just after the installation, or is suspected to be connected to the installation, it must be brought to our attention before any third party costs are incurred, including dealership repair costs. If the fault is raised with a third party before Cygnal is made aware, and has had time to undertake an investigation of the issue, we cannot be held responsible for the fault or any repair costs.
