A few years ago we got thinking that the average bloke could not buy a well priced garage door in the NZ market. It was controlled by a few big companies selling through franchise type arrangements and the DIY capable consumer was maybe paying more than they needed to.
We looked at where the significant costs were and removed those things from our business. We don't have a bricks and mortar store nor do we have reps or a flashy website. We try and keep the business simple and can therefore keep our margins low.
Many competitors offer a free measure and quote, nothing is free. This service is simply paid for by the customers that accept the quote. As we do not offer measure and quote services we have no need to load our prices to cover the cost of staff and vehicles.
Instead offering a naked service for those that know what they want, and just want it at a good price. If you can operate a tape measure then you can measure the opening, but you need to be practical too.....if your garage is old and a bit out of square, or the bits and pieces on the inside don't all look neat and tidy, then unless you are a seasoned DIYer you might be far better served by a full service company that will come and measure the opening and provide a full sales service. That's not us, we are low on personal service, high on value!
Most of our clients are builders, farmers, landlords or DIYer's, but we can also supply the general public with great doors at great prices.
We have a wide network of preferred installers so can service many parts of NZ with complete installation services. Installers only install doors, they do not undertake other building work to remedy a change in the opening. If you order an installed door from us, for a small additional fee (subject to location) we are happy to send our installer out to check the measurements before manufacture - but we only do this for the jobs we have received payment for. Again by only servicing the people we are actually doing business with our costs are reduced and the savings passed back to you.
We can also offer variations such as even larger guides for additional strength and security, auto openers etc.
