What is a “garage door emergency”?
A garage door emergency is defined by the immediate hinderance that a malfunctioning door has on the function of the garage itself. You and or your vehicles can’t leave or get into the garage for whatever reason, or the property inside the area is in danger of being damaged by the door. This is what we refer to as an emergency – when time is of the essence.
Examples of a garage door emergency can include:
All these and more other kinds of situations can prove either dangerous, or a major obstruction in our day to day lives. In such situations, we recommend emergency assistance.
Who should I contact?
While, yes, you can contact us in the case of an emergency, we would recommend that for the fastest and most efficient response, that you talk with your insurance company. They will then most likely contact us and the emergency repair service will then be covered by your insurance handler.
What do we do in the case of an emergency?
Strategically speaking, our first response to an emergency malfunction of a door will not be to return it to full operating order but to prioritise safety first. Repairs and maintenance can be handled at another time but until then, in assuring there is no damage to yourself, your property or your residents, we will most likely provide once-off opening or closing the door as needed to allow the necessary entry or exit required before you can think about getting it repaired.
What can you do in an emergency?
Contacting us or your insurance holder is and should always be the first step. If you are not a garage door technician or professional then it’s best to keep yourself free of potential injury and call on the qualified industry technicians to do their job.
The most helpful advice we can recommend is that you do your best to remain calm and to gather all the necessary information about your garage door, the automatic opener/motor and the accessories involved that your insurance provider or our team will require in order to best prepare themselves for the task at hand.
