Gate Service & Repair...

Servicing and maintenance

Why do I need our gates serviced?

For a number of reasons, some or all of the reasons below.
electric gate service and repair
1
Obviously a gate moving back and forth continuously needs lubrication to keep it running smoothly and prevent wear and tear

2
Insects get everywhere!, including slugs in the control board, one single slug can cost you three times more than the cost of the service.

Reduce the cost of a breakdown if you have a service agreement in place.

 



We offer a fully scheduled service, every 12 months we will call to arrange a date and time to suit you. 
We will call to confirm closer to the date. Our engineers are all fully trained and equipped to deal with any problems 
your system may have. 
We recommend 12 monthly service visits after the system has been in place for 18months, for the following reasons:


1. Wear and tear

Whilst we forget that the gates are there, working everyday in all weathers, we may need to be reminded that with 
anything moving back and forth without question and without ant grease, there is a certain amount of wear and tear.
Gates will often drop and need to be adjusted both to continue to work as well as the day they were installed, but also 
may not be working safely.
 
All hinges and bearings are greased in order to take us safely to the next scheduled service visit. 
We carry a comprehensive range of spares on our vans to ensure that the gates are left working as safe or safer than 
the day they were installed. 

2.Insect infestation
One of the key reasons for major cost breakdowns is the infestation of insects and molluscs, spiders build webs over the 
photocells stopping them from working and slugs manage to get into a virtually sealed box and crawl across the live part 
of the control board making it go bang! Even on a brand new system this can happen and isn't covered on the warranty of 
most gates.

3.Maintaining your warranty
Some of the better companies offer warranties  up to three years, but if the service hasn't been carried out this warranty 
will be invalid.
 

4.Safety

For us, the safety of you electric gate system is a paramount, as it is for you the home owner and therefore if we feel a 
new safety product would significantly increase the safety of a system we will provide details of the new products to you 
and the relevant costs.
When we service your gates we also perform several safety tests to make sure your gates still perform safely and won’t
be a danger to your family or property. 
We will test all the safety systems you have in place already and replace any faulty or worn items.
Your life changes effect the amount of safety needed on your gates, whether it be a change to the physical

5. Improvement 
before we visit your home or office to service your electric gate system, we will talk through any problems you may be 
having with the gates we can also consider specific upgrades and adjustments you would like carried out while we are on 
site; this may range from a simple code change, additional remote controls or even the addition of extra safety cells or 
an intercom.

6.Guarantee your call out
No one wants to keep repairing something that isn't looked after and the trend to only support systems that are looked 
after are growing, so if you are not covered by a maintenance  schedule, you may not be able to get a gate company to 
come out to you.

7.Reduce the cost of a breakdown
If you have a service contract in place with us, we offer a reduced cost breakdown cover and we will prioritize your 
call out.
