Installations

We have a very experienced team at Ram Mobile, led by Jeff Lunn who has amassed a staggering 40 years in the business, and who celebrates his 25th anniversary this year with Ram.
Knowledge is everything, and few can match Jeff’s, along with his enthusiasm for the car audio industry and he is supported by a team of installers, including senior fitters Ben, Andy and Qasim who between them have many, many years of experience in car audio and vehicle security, including custom car audio design and build using fibre glass for a more integrated finish.
In this section you will find examples of some of the work we have carried out which we hope you will find of interest. Please note all the articles dated 23/08/2016 have been imported from our old website and are dated when the new site went live.
