The door wouldn't close using either the remote or manual controls. The issue was with the sensor.

Verified Review

Impressed with the work carried out but not the invoicing and payment system!! I sent a cheque for the full amount on 24th June 2022 only to receive a letter in early July saying that I hadn't paid. I spent ages on the phone to my bank sorting out what would happen if I paid again and the original cheque was then presented for payment at a later date. This was sorted with the bank and when I phoned 1st Choice to tell them they told me that they hadn't yet paid the cheque in to their bank and they would be doing so the following Saturday!! Why send me the 'non payment' letter?
