Our take on the InstallCard: Headrest Video

by Tim Sprinkle

Not into "do it yourself" car stereo installations? No problem. With a prepaid InstallCard, you can have your new overhead or dual headrest monitor system (with built-in DVD player) installed by any professional who's a member of the InstallerNet Network — which boasts more than 1,500 members across the country. You'll get all the benefits of buying your gear from Crutchfield, plus the time savings and peace of mind that come with professional installation.

How does it work?
Simple. First, enter your zip code to see if there's an InstallCard installer in your area (if you don't see an installer listed, you may wish to call InstallerNet at the number listed below the zip code field. New installers are added to the network frequently, so there may be options available for you that aren't yet listed online). Then, just add this card to your online shopping cart, and proceed through checkout as usual. When you receive the card from us, visit www.installcard.com, enter the unique InstallCard number on the back of the card, and schedule your installation with the local shop.

Installation
When you arrive for your appointment at your local stereo shop, just hand over the InstallCard, along with the gear you've purchased and your Crutchfield invoice (it will be included in the box with your order), and your installation begins.

You can feel confident about the quality of work since every installer on the InstallerNet Network has at least two years' experience and is MECP (Mobile Electronics Certified Professional) certified. InstallerNet feels so strongly about the expertise of their installers that they will warranty the labor of your installation for the life of your vehicle.

Highlights:

  • prepaid installation of an overhead or dual headrest monitor system at your choice of more than 1,500 professional stereo shops
  • installation does not cover modifications to your vehicle; if modifications are required, the installer will inform you of any additional charges before performing the work
  • InstallCard services are currently available in all 50 states and Puerto Rico; we cannot ship InstallCards outside these areas.
  • installation labor is warranted for the life of your vehicle
  • Important note: This installation does not cover modifications to your vehicle. If modifications are required, you may be charged extra for parts and labor at the time of installation. Your installer will inform you of any additional charges before performing the work, so you can approve the charges. Some possible extra charges (parts, labor, or both) include:
    • complex installation processes, due to vehicle roof curvature, sunroof controls, or conditions that may require modification to the roof
    • direct wiring of the sound of your video system to your vehicle's in-dash stereo
    • your headrest monitors require the installation of a separate video source, such as a DVD player

Important Note: Install Cards are not eligible for refunds once they are activated.

  • If equipment is determined to be defective during the process of the installation or immediately after while still at the install shop the installer will remove and reinstall the equipment at no charge.
  • If the Manufacturer's product becomes defective sometime after the initial installation, and it is determined that the malfunction is not caused by the installation, then the installer will replace the defective unit with a new unit supplied by the customer, and the customer will be responsible for an R&R (removal and reinstallation) charge which will not exceed 50% of the original installation charge.
  • If the customer chooses to remove non-defective equipment (swapping for a different brand, for example), Installer Net will charge for a completely new installation.

Features

Overview: With this InstallCard (42-1008) a professional installer will either (a) install an overhead mobile video with built-in DVD player (some vehicles will require additional parts and/or labor due to sunroof, controls, or curvature of the roof); or (b) remove factory headrests and install dual aftermarket mobile video headrests. Additional installation charges may apply for optional video sources such as games, navigation, or VCR/DVD player.

Disclaimers: This InstallCard (42-1008) does not include the following installation costs:

  • If the factory wires or dashboard have been cut or damaged due to a previous non-professional installation or theft.
  • If the in-dash, flip down or headrest monitors has either an optional or required video input that is not built into the unit and has to be mounted separately in the vehicle (such as a Playstation, DVD or VCR, for example)
  • Most headrest and flip down units will have a wireless FM modulator that will allow the sound to be played through the vehicle's stereo system. If you don't have an FM mod and you would like it hardwired to the vehicle there will be additional parts and labor.
  • Some vehicles will require a high level of difficulty to install a flip down video screen due to the contour of the vehicle roof and may require ceiling enhancements or additional mounting trim brackets. Overhead Video units which include Trim Kits/Rings can eliminate this risk.
  • Vehicles that have overhead sunroofs, radio controls, heater controls, A/C vents and consoles may require additional labor.
  • Vehicles that have a designated spot for an overhead video screen in a factory console may require a factory installed item.

Installation Warranty: Each installation performed using an InstallCard comes with a nationwide limited lifetime labor warranty. If at any time, the installed product becomes inoperable due to a faulty installation the installer will correct the problem at no charge.

Defective Equipment: If the equipment is found to be defective at the time of installation, the installer will remove the defective unit and reinstall a replacement unit (supplied by the customer) at no additional charge. If the installed equipment fails later, after leaving the installation shop, and it is determined that the malfunction is not caused by the installation, the installer will remove and replace the defective unit with a new unit supplied by the customer, and the customer will be responsible for a removal and reinstallation charge which will not exceed 50% of the original installation charge.

I am extremely happy that I decided to buy an InstallCard for a Overhead DVD player. The process to activate the card was simple and then I just had to call the installer to set up an appointment to take my car in. Installation was done in the time I had been told and the work was excellent.
Pros:
Reasonable price, easy process and quality installer.
Cons:
None.

Installation

Written By Todd, Lawrenceville, GA on Wednesday, July 14, 2010
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
It was very easy finding someone to come out and install my new DVD player. Initially I had problems with the installation after it was complete. I informed Crutchfield and InstallCard about the situation. The installer called me immediately and took care of the problem right away. They were very concerned and made sure I was happy with the installation. Crutchfield once again exceeded my expectations. I have been a longtime customer and will continue to be so in the future.
