Delivery and Supply Updates
Tuesday 17th May 2022
Demand is still high for all types of garage doors and most building products in the UK following on from major supply shortages in 2021. The entire supply chain worldwide is suffering an increasing issue with general raw material and crucial component shortages still in 2022, along with the Ukrainian crisis also destabilising many areas. This is causing unmanageable delays in manufacturing and delivery times and this situation changes daily. We attempt to keep all updates coming as soon as we receive them regarding the supply chain and manufacturers and how this affects you. Our order confirmations providing your estimated delivery date after ordering are often delayed now because of the shortages (occasionally faster of course).
As the leading online supplier for garage doors we have added some product ranges to our online shop which are available on a faster delivery system, please check or ask for details. There are also some stock items available in up and over and sectional door types and our clearance doors section to review for bargains that might work for you.
We recommend the earliest ordering of your garage door(s) as we see little change in general disruptions during 2022. If a delivery date is very important to you we recommend calling or emailing us directly so we can make enquiries to get a better idea of the delivery date. This issue affects every single manufacturer without exception, but affects some door sizes, colours and specifications more than others.
Please remember most of the doors we offer are made to measure as standard at no extra cost which is one of our unique offerings, providing customers with garage and pedestrian doors that fit perfectly to the opening and whilst we do have stock doors they are generally quite limited.
PRICE ALERT!! - Please note there are price increases across every type of door on June 1st from Hormann, Garador and SWS. Average increase is around 9% so please order and confirm your orders before June 1st to retain the current prices.
