This client came into office to discuss broken garage door & was given all costs. He went out to his car then came back in to book the appointment. The repair was carried out as we had explained & door left in good working order. We never know how long the repair will take, depends on how old the door is & how easy it is to get the old parts off. Depending on how rusty it all is. Fitters are highly experienced & carry at repairs as well & efficiently as possible. Everyone knows prices before job is done.
Servicing an electric roller door
Engineer serviced the garage door for my very elderly mother. Barely there 15 mins, 5 of these saying the safety beam was broken. Recommended having a new one fixed costing of over £120. 10 minute service cost £109 - almost £11 per minute! Advance Shutters said they had replaced a battery and checked everything, yet the boxes were covered in dust and cobwebs, so clearly not touched. I tested the "broken" door beam, on several occasions, it worked perfectly. Over £100 for what appears to be a 10 min visual check is excessive. Extremely disappointed

Door was serviced per manufacturers guide lines & all that was necessary done The safety edge system is always checked & new batteries put in if found not to be working on this occasion safety system was still not working after new battery was put in This was shown to lady/owner & she was shown that the door did not stop if obstructed We advised her of this fact & put it in writing making sure she watched door as it closed making Sure it did not close onto anything. If subsequently now working must be an intermittent problem

Repair garage door
Came quickly when we called, they were very sympathetic and helpful. The price was reasonable, superb service.
I can't rate the company more highly; polite on the telephone and in person, not pushy (didn't try and pressure sell anything), and when the engineer knew he was going to be late for the appointment, I received a call from the office and an apology from Warren on his arrival. Advice was given on how to properly and safely open and close my repaired garage door.
