Sometimes when we quote customers for reversing camera installation, they feel a bit shocked as it can be a bit pricey. Let us explain.
Not all cars are equal when it comes to installation. And not all installers are equal. Some cars need the rear bumpers removed such as the Proton Persona. Some cars can be easily accessed from the inside of the rear trunk lid. It all depends where the camera is mounted and also the design of the car. Is it easily accessible or do we need to remove and insane amount of clips and bolts to get access. All these will affect time, and as we know, time is money.
Not forgetting, the wires need to be run from the head unit to the back of the car, in a neat and tidy way. This brings us to the next point, not all installers are equal. There is always a faster way to do it which involves cutting and joining wires and also just hastily running the wires. This doesn’t meet our standards therefore we don’t take up such jobs. We feel the savings doesn’t justify the outcome.
