  • Felix was exremely efficient and helpful. I wouls recommend him any time.

  • Proffesional excellent service!

  • Phoned them in the afternoon and they arrived the same day. Must say Adolf and Colin really know what they are doing. The gate was fixed and then the garage door, which another company had quoted me thousands to replace the springs, these guys said the tension just had to be adjusted. I would recommend them to anyone needing motorised gate and Garage door repairs. Great service !!

  • We received amazing service from Felix. He was willing to come out at very short notice, and then an hour before he was due to arrive I had to let him know that we had load shedding. He was completely understanding and said I could just let him know when the power is back on. He also followed up with me during the day to get an update on the power. He fixed the gate motor same day at a very reasonable price. I would definitely recommend Felix to anyone. Thank you Felix, you are great.
