Create memories that'll continue to be made for a lifetime with your new basketball hoop!

I am the only installer in the country offering a LIFETIME Labor Warranty on premium in-ground basketball hoop installations!

The work required is no joke — digging a 4-foot-deep hole, setting anchor bolts perfectly in 1,200–2,300‑lbs of wet concrete, lifting a 200‑lb glass backboard, micro-leveling the whole system left-to-right & front-to-back and then calibrating it to 10-feet high.

What's the Installation Process?

Your in-ground basketball system is a 2‑visit process.

Before I can start digging, underground utilities must be checked. There is no additional time or effort required on your end. I manage this entire process for you. Once you hire me, I will contact 811® and the clock will start on the they require to perform the check.

During my 1st visit, I will do a walk-through with you and we'll determine where you want your hoop placed. We will take into account any utility lines that are marked, the size of your driveway or pad, and any cut marks in the concrete for aesthetic purposes. Once determined, I will use a custom template and start digging the hole.

The hole will then be filled with concrete. The rebar and anchor system will be embedded before the concrete dries too much. This is the most critical part of the installation process to get right, as it's the foundation for everything to come later.

The concrete then needs to dry. The drying times I require are in warm weather and up to in cold weather. After which I'll return for the 2nd visit to erect your system.

Under normal circumstances, concrete that's under an object like a shed can be used within . Basketball systems are different...they are putting unusual stresses on the concrete with a heavy backboard hanging out from the pole 3‑to‑5 feet. Visualize holding a bucket of water with your arm out horizontal. That is a lot of stress!

This whole process may sound like a lot, and I understand that. As you'll see from my reviews, it is made to be as seamless as possible. Once you hire me, there is very little to do on your part.

Do you have a hoop picked out yet?

If you haven't purchased your hoop yet, contact me for a recommendation on size/brand for your needs. The biggest sized hoops do not fit all applications.

There is a select group of companies that offer Lifetime Manufacturers Warranties that include dunking and hanging, and these are not sold in retail stores. Using one of these hoops combined with my Lifetime Labor Warranty, it will be the last hoop you'll ever buy. Your great-grandkids will be dunking and hanging on it someday!

There are 4 types of basketball systems

Here are some guidelines regarding backboard size to get you started:

54"
Tight Area, 1 Car wide
60"
Normal Driveway, 2 Cars wide
72"
Large Driveway, 3 Cars wide

How much does in-ground basketball hoop installation cost?

This is a difficult question to answer until more details are answered: What size hoop you're getting, what additional services you're needing, and the distance between us?

  • For the base service package requested by most homeowners, the cost (not including travel time) to get the quality of a Precise Assemblies installed hoop is going to be somewhere between $700–$900.
  • For those wanting or needing additional premium services, the cost (not including travel time) will usually fall between $850–$1,750.
  • If you have above-ground or under-ground obstacles to overcome, the additional cost could range anywhere from $100–$600.
  • If you have an old hoop to remove before the new one can be installed, the removal of the hoop can range from $75–$550 additional depending on the type of hoop it is.
  • For those DIYers that want to save money by doing some of the labor themselves, the cost can be lowered to a range of $180–$700 depending on how much work you're able to complete yourself.

Client Reviews

Angela F., St. Louis, MO Jeremy installed our ProDunk basketball hoop. He arrived early and did a great job. With all the heavy pieces and hardware, I thought the installation would require at least three people. But, Jeremy’s ingenious pulley and other mechanical gadgets made it a safe, precise and efficient one-man job (that my kids loved watching!). Original review from Angela on
Jim M., Chesterfield, MO Jeremy really knows what he’s doing and is organized. Did not have one issue. I’ve had two basketball hoops installed before this one, and now I can tell the two guys that installed those had no idea what they were doing. If you’re going to purchase your product, sometimes the product is only as good as the installer. He is top-of-the-line when it comes to installing basketball hoops, in-ground or portable. Original review from Jim on
Ken D., Hillsboro, MO Jeremy was absolutely amazing from his communication to most importantly the quality of his work. I’ve never seen anyone take as much pride in his work as he does. He has the proper tools to get any job done you may need and his professionalism is unmatched. Worth every penny and more in my opinion.
Scott S., Creve Coeur, MO It was a pleasure working with Jeremy. Despite a global pandemic and dealing with his own family tragedy, he kept me posted on his status, arrived on time, completed the work with care and precision, and was even kind enough to share his secrets on the proprietary systems he has created to help with installation efficiency. Highly recommended for any installation!! Original review from Scott on
Jarrod B., Highland, IL Jeremy did a great job installing our basketball goal. Extremely professional and knowledgeable. Original review from Jarrod on
Lee F., Greenville, KY Has all the right tools and knowledge to do a professional job and clean up after. Original review from Lee on
Garrett C., Jackson, MO Great work, great communication, kids love it. Highly recommend for basketball goal assembly!
Tim W., St. Louis, MO Everything about his set up was awesome. From day one I felt confident that this was going to work out great. Jeremy works hard and really helped decide on the best location. I read his reviews and went with him. Glad I did. Thanks Jeremy Original review from Tim on
Scott M., Edwardsville, IL Precise assemblies puts a huge emphasis on attention to detail. When installing my hoop, they ensured that the backboard was parallel with the driveway, the backboard and rim were level, and let me know that the sticker indication hoop height was calibrated to the top of the line on the sticker. The line was about two millimeters in thickness and he went through the trouble to calibrate it to the top of the line folks. Think about that. It should tell you everything you need to know. If they’re more expensive than other installers, it’s because they’re worth it. Original review from Scott on
Wes C., Richmond, KY Great transaction value for value! Very seldom you can say thanks for the value I paid for! You will not be disappointed with this company! A professional job.
Arnold M., Florissant, MO Jeremy was everything we expected and more. Five stars for his attention to detail, professionalism, knowledge, cleanliness, and all out work ethic. I also had him paint my court as well. The lines are perfect and my home court looks amazing. He had all of the proper tools to get the job done in a timely manor. I was very impressed to see him pull up the old cement and cut the big boulder into smaller pieces to haul off. He took my old goal, all of the boxes, and the pallet that it came on. If you need a basketball goal installed, I highly recommend Jeremy for the job. I am very satisfied with the excellent professional job Jeremy has done installing my goal and painting my court. Five star service hands down. If you want it done right and looking great, Jeremy is the man for the job. Big Smile.
Ron E., Fenton, MO Jeremy at Precise Assemblies did an excellent job installing my Pro-Dunk basketball hoop. He had a challenging job digging a large hole through very rocky ground and hard clay. He was able to successfully align and calibrate the basketball goal to my existing court markings. He was very meticulous and detail oriented and made sure the job was done right. He spent additional time explaining to me how to adjust and lock the system. He also disposed all the large boxes and wood pallet off my hands, even though that was outside the scope of his work. I highly recommend Jeremy for your install needs! Original review from Ron on
Paul S., Waterloo, IL Jeremy did a fantastic job! His attention to detail was the best I've seen, but what I appreciated the most was how he interacted with my boys. He took the time to explain the steps in putting up our basketball hoop. I will definitely seek his help again with future installation projects. Original review from Paul on
Mary-Ann M., Cape Girardeau, MO We highly recommend Precise Assemblies. Jeremy is a true professional. He’s knowledgeable, efficient, hard working, on time, and NEAT! His work space is always cleaner when he leaves than when he arrives. Jeremy installed an awesome basketball goal that our boys love. He’s also done some audio/visual work for us. You won’t hire anyone who’ll work harder for you. Original review from Mary-Ann on
Patrick R., Danville, KY I am very, very pleased with Precise Assemblies! I asked Precise Assemblies to install a Produnk Diamond model hoop for me. After I read the reviews of the various installers, I decided I wanted to go with him even though that meant paying extra for the travel time, as I was outside his regular service area. It was worth every penny. Jeremy is very professional, very meticulous, prompt, and responsive. His work is flawless. I absolutely recommend Jeremy for any assembly or installation work. He has tremendous experience and he puts great thought into the work he does. He is excellent! Original review & photos from Patrick on

Brent P., Jackson, MO Jeremy helped me very quickly when I was in a bind and needed assistance with a basketball goal installation. He was extremely professional and easy to talk with. Greatly appreciate his help!!! Original post from Brent on
Paul G., University City (St Louis), MO I found Jeremy to be a perfectionist. No detail was overlooked. I often thought as he was working..."that's good enough", but I realized it would not be for him until it met his high standard. His work was both organized and concise. I enjoyed seeing how he had thought through every phase of the goal installation process. He developed custom/specialized tools for the job, and had improved upon others. It was quite fascinating to see his ingenuity. The end result was a perfectly installed in-ground basketball hoop! Would certainly recommend his services.
Chris R., Cape Girardeau, MO I am not receiving anything for my promotion below and this recommendation is long overdue. Jeremy is very professional and will assemble anything that you need. He did everything that he promised, responded promptly, was very professional, organized, kept his work site very clean, and was very detail oriented. He installed our basketball goal and it looks awesome. Chris' post to his family and friends on
