Hi Valerie,
I can do this for you. A couple of proviso's though:-
1. I see you mention that it is an internal stud wall. Noggins are generally at 1200mm, so it's easy to run vertically inside the wall provided that entry points and exit points are below that. It is possible to go through a noggin but there is some extra work required, including wall repair and patch up painting.
2. Some internal walls have insulation packed really tight in the cavity. This can sometimes make pulling a wire/s through almost impossible. Not common but just sometimes.
So based on these things NOT happening, my offer is for the labour to mount the TV and run your cabling as per the task. I can do really groovy wall plates/brackets etc, we can discuss upon a site visit.

This afternoon is fine, but you need to assign before we can exchange contact details. My offer is good for a simple install, plus the cost of a bracket. A possible bracket is shown in the attachment, it offers tilt, swivel and reach and works with monitors up to 25kg. It is $145. There are less expensive ones which don't offer the same amount of reach, but maybe you don't need as much.
This is a simpler one, with less reach. May need a secondary plate if mounting on a stud wall. But it's only $90
Hey, I can still do this Saturday I think. I am off for the evening now so won't be at the computer until tomorrow mid morning.

Is job available to do during business hours or does it require to be done after hours
We really need it to be done on a weekend
And I can get cables through noggins, it just extends the task. Nothing is impossible if you are determined!
Sounds great - we don't have the actual bracket yet - are you able to recommend or source a good one for a big TV to tilt / swivel ? If you provide it how much would the total job be ?

I've posted two pics of the wall space & the TV type - can you see them?
Most newer TV's aren't that heavy, which is a bonus for you as a stud wall typically is harder to fix to. There are many great brackets, depends on how much extension/swivel you want, and the weight of the tv. I have done this a lot, (40 years in AV installation). Short answer is brackets cost between $50 and $200, I am pleased you don't have one. I would be happy to drop out, check your wall and tv, then price & source a decent one for you. So if you're game, award the task and we get started.
what is the wall made out of
