Coronavirus and Delivery Updates
Wednesday 28th July 2021
The current demand is still high for all types of garage doors and other building products in the UK. The entire supply chain worldwide is now suffering from sporadic outbreaks of Covid and new variants and on top of this and a larger problem is an increasing problem with general raw material and crucial component shortages. This is causing unmanageble delays in manufacturing and therefore delivery times and this situation changes daily. We will attempt to keep all updates coming as soon as we receive them regarding our supply chain and manufacturers and how this affects you.
There are now unusual price increases imminent with all manufacturers due to the sudden price increases in steel, timber and aluminium worldwide. We will keep you updated as soon as they are announced.
We have special limited time offers on pricing to help combat the impending increases and offer the very best prices possible during July.
Updates 27th July
Hormann announce an 8% increases on their timber garage door range from the 1st August. Expect more increases around October time too. Garador have the same increases.
Carteck sectional and Side Hinged Steel Doors - 6% increase on 1st August
GDO - Up and Over and Side Hinged Doors - All doors - Surcharge at around an average of £25 on 26th July
Ryterna - Price increases from the 15th July - Details TBC
We recommend the earliest ordering of your garage door(s) as we see little change in general disruptions during 2021 due to demand and lack of supply of critical parts to complete many products. If a delivery date is very important to you we recommend speaking to us so we can make enquiries to get a far better idea of the potential timescales. 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 to just some up and over type doors.
Thank you for your understanding. Please Stay Safe, and we are extremely grateful for all the current and continuing business in these extraordinary difficult times.
