Delivery man knocking on the client's door
Posted by: admin on November 20, 2014
When shopping for your next garage door, naturally you’ll focus on quality, style, durability, color and of course, price as well. And while all of these factors are important and should be part of your decision-making process, there is another aspect that you should demand regardless of where you buy your garage door: same day service.

At first, the idea of same day service may seem unimportant; especially when you have so many other things to consider. However, when you take a moment and think about it, same day service is absolutely essential – and here are 3 reasons why:

 1. Security

Your garage is a prime target for would-be burglars who want to steal your valuables, and possibly break into your house as well. So just as you wouldn’t dream of waiting even a couple of days – let alone few days or longer – to fix a broken front door, you simply cannot afford to wait days for your garage door company to fix your malfunctioning garage door. It’s a core part of your home’s security system.

2. Safety

A garage door is a major appliance that operates using highly complex components. And while it’s by no means a foregone conclusion that a problem – even a big one – will cause an injury, is that really a risk that you want to take for you and your family? Clearly it’s not, and that’s why having your garage fixed the same day is simply common sense.

3. Cost

As you and your wallet know, it’s getting more and more expensive each year to keep your home cool in the summer, and warm in the winter. However, if your garage door is malfunctioning and exposing your home to the outside, then your heating or cooling system will have to work that much harder – which directly translates into a higher bill at the end of the month.

Make Sure You Have an Option

 Sometimes, you won’t need same day service to fix a garage door problem – and that’s fine. In those cases, you can safely afford to wait a few days or even longer if you wish.

But as you can see from the examples above, there are times when it’s a good idea to have a same day service option. And that’s why it should definitely be on your list of criteria when shopping for a new garage door.
