What Our Customers Are Saying

I was a little warry ordering my DISH system from a place in Maine on the Internet, but everyone was saying that you were the place to buy from. And I have to agree, I've been Very Satisfied with Grady's service and support, the DISH equipmant, and Echostar's service as well.......Allen N.....Davis, ILL.

Thought I would let you know that I received the Dish Network system on friday just like you said. Everything is up and running. It's a great system. Thanks for the great service. I will definetly recommend your place for future business.....Bill B...Ithaca, NY.

I ordered two systems (both for family members) from Grady's and they were delivered in 2 days (i.e., shipped same day as ordered). They also take plastic (with no surchage) and shipping was very reasonable. They were also very supportive before the sale answering all my E-mail questions. No connection other than a satisified customer. Highly recommended.....C. Wayne B....Cascade & Sabillasville, Md.

I wanted to thank you for the excellent service you provided when I ordered our Dish Network system. Everyone I talked with at Grady's was extremely warm and friendly. When UPS failed to deliver our package (2ed. day air) on time, I contacted UPS to track the package. As soon as your company learned about the difficulty I received a call from you to let me know the status of the delivery. Although I did not ask for it, you volunteered to refund the shipping charges as soon as UPS approved the refund. I received the refund a few days ago. I learned about your company on the Internet. After reading several messages from other customers complementing your service, I decided to place my order. I am delighted to discover that the Internet is an effective way to do business. Your company provides fantastic service.....Nan A....Huntsville, Al.

I have been a customer of Grady's for almost 3 years. You have always been responsive and have performed as promised. With my first system, Grady provided me with technical advice on how to combine local signals with the satellite signal and sent me diagrams on how to hook up the components - and had all the parts I needed. Since the delivery of this frist system, I have purchased another system for a family member and recommended Grady's to a close friend. In every case, the delivery has been as promised and the advice has been first rate. Thanks for exceeding my expectations........Mike May.....Stillwater, Mn.

I am happy to tell you that I received my Dish Network Model 4900 receiver yesterday just as you told me. I already have it subscribed and using it as a second receiver in another room. From my recent experience from buying from Grady's, I recommend anyone to buy from them. My receiver came a lot quicker than if I would have had our local retailer order it for me. Thank you so much, and You Help Make Dish Network a better provider. I have added your site to my "favorites list". I will do business with you again if I need anything else related to my satellite system. Thanks again, Perry McKinney.....P.S., I have to give a grade "A" for the courteous, prompt, phone conversation and the wait time to get produce. Why can't some of the others do it as good as you? Simply put, You are a very professional company that knows about the products that are out there and you are there if a problem should occur. I strongly recommed others to order from your company....Perry McKinney
