Advice for customers due to COVID-19

Advice for customers due to COVID-19

Updated 24th March 2020

It is with a heavy heart that we have made the decision to stop all garage door installations, quotations and non-emergency work for a minimum of three weeks.

This is not a decision that has been easy to make but we have to prioritise our team’s health. It is not physically possible for them to work together and keep 2m apart. As you may know we are a small team, only three fitters, and we need to look after them, their families and our local community.

We are so sorry to let our customers down, it is not something which sits easy with us. We hope you can understand and support us when we all come out the other side.


We will continue to carry out emergency repairs until advice from government stops us from doing so.  Examples of emergencies are:

  • Garage door stuck open causing security risk to your home
  • Garage door unable to lock causing security risk to your home
  • Garage door will not open and you need to access for food / washing facilities / electricity or other essential items
  • Garage door will not open and you need to access to retrieve vehcile to allow you to keep working

Please note Key Workers within 20 mile radius of OX16 will not be charged a call out fee.  Please make sure you tell us you are a Key Worker and the role you do when you call to book.


All emergency repairs will be undertaken following strict contactless measures, we will:

  • Telephone you on arrival and talk through how we will proceed
  • Ask you to stay in your property whilst we are on site.
  • On completion we will return to the van to call you and ask you to check the work.
  • We will then talk through with you on the telephone and ensure you are happy before leaving
  • If we need to return to the garage please return to your home whilst we do this.

Each member of staff has access to the following (where supplies allow):

  • Liquid hand soap
  • Bottled water for hand washing
  • Antibacterial spray
  • Antibacterial wipes

Each member of staff has been advised to adhere to the following guidance:

  • Keep a distance of two metres from customers at all times
  • Not to shake customers hands or enter into physical contact with you
  • Not to enter your home
  • Not to accept refreshments from customers
  • Wear a fresh pair of blue gloves at each property and dispose of in the waste bags
  • Waste bags should be tied securely and disposed off at the end of each day
