Our online shop is very large and complex and occasionally some gremlins find their way in and give varied results during the processes. We do monitor our system regularly but if you see something not adding up simply proceed with the order and we will always confirm the details before processing fully so the price difference would always be detected and corrected. If you do not wish to proceed through the website you can call or email your order to us. Again we will confirm the order details by return.

A: All new doors ordered on our website will be confirmed by email before we fully process the order so you can confirm we have interpreted your requirements and sizes correctly. Once you have ordered via our shop or calculator sytem we will send a more detailed email confirming all the details for you to check.

They are always delivered by either the manufacturer or ourselves in specialised transport vehicles. The smaller items such as the remote control operators and accessories are delivered by post.
We must be made aware of any delivery restrictions prior to your order being placed and any damages or shortages from your delivery must be reported in writing within 3 days of the completion of delivery.
Many of the delivery vehicles are very large and we need to know if there are any access problems to your property beforehand so we can arrange accordingly.



Most doors and electric operators are supplied with full printed installation instructions.

Many PDF installation instructions can also be found in our downloads sections or if they are not clear you can always contact us for assistance.
