Personal Service At Affordable Prices
Deltavision TV was founded in late October 1982, just in time for the first transmission of Channel 4, on November 2nd. This was a significant date in our history as much of our business involved selling reconditioned TVs (mainly Philips, Ferguson and Panasonic) and we stocked the earliest VCRs for sale from our shop which was situated opposite Dogpool lane B30 in Ten Acres, Stirchley, Birmingham.
My Mum and I set up the business and we also rented TVs and VCRs, and at our high point had around 180 rental agreements which brought in a steady income, along with sales and repairs.
My Dad joined us in the late eighties and helped with rental payment collection and deliveries.
We ran the business from the shop for about fifteen or so years, although I moved the service side of things to my home in Pineapple road, Stirchley in the early 1990’s but Mum and Dad carried on with the shop and I covered their TV service from home where I had set up a purpose built, well equipped workshop.
Sadly my Mum, Eileen Eastwood, passed away in May 2009, but our customers from the past years who had dealings with her will remember her friendly and helpful nature, she seemed to get on with everybody, and she is always in our hearts, and is sadly missed.
During recent years, I have worked with other companies working on some of the latest models of TV and other electronic equipment. I have continued to run Deltavision TV alongside whilst gleaning the extra experience required to stay ahead in an ever changing electronic world.
