Coronavirus and Delivery Updates

Coronavirus and Delivery Updates

Monday 27th September 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 the isolation rules preventing normal staff levels, and on top of this, and a larger problem now, is an increasing issue 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. Our order confirmations providing an estimated delivery date after ordering are often delayed now because of the shortages.

There are now some 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 August..

Updates 13th September
Hormann and Garador - Price increases from the 1st October on all door types at a minimum of 5%
Specific Hormann price increase on ALL timber Up and Over garage doors  -  15% increase on the 1st october
Gliderol - Price increase from the 4th October across all the ranges of roller doors - More details to folow when released

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.
