YouChoos Products

Services, Fitters and Partners

Although YouChoos does not normally take on fitting/commission work on customer models, we sometimes will, especially if it is for a new model where we do not yet have an installation guide published, or the existing installation guide is quite old - check with us if you feel it would be of benefit for others to see such an guide.

A lot of time and effort has gone into our installation guides and resources online so you can see how to do it yourself. Of course there are many approaches, and many combinations of kit that can be used, so we are always happy to offer advice.

If you feel that an installation is beyond your skills or comfort, then we list a number of service partners below who may be able to do this work for you. Perhaps your local model shop, or local DCC fitter may be able to help you, but if you get stuck, then we are very happy to recommend our partners below. All those listed below have been certified by YouChoos for quality and techniques.

Please note that none of the service providers listed are directly related to YouChoos, except by experience, or as resellers, so any work that you choose to undertake using them is strictly between them and yourself - YouChoos holds no liability in that relationship. However, any partner listed has been through a process of review in order to attain certification, so you can expect a good level of quality and communication - we wouldn't list them if we didn't feel they could provide a good service!
