The location in California isn’t as important as the results that luckily ended with no injuries, but did end with damage.
Case study #1
We had a customer who owned a residential garage door in Bay Ridge, and asked us to come and fix the garage door which is off tracks. He then asked us how much will it cost to repair such thing, and we answered that estimating out of track garage door repair in El Cajon is unprofessional, and that we need to send someone to check the door. He said that he is willing to pay 50$ for the repair and not more. We politely explained that the repair may cost 50$, but that garage door repairs can cost even 500$, and that we cannot estimate over the phone. He said that he will call another company.
3 Days later, we get a call from the same customer asking us to come and fix the door. We asked what changed, and he said that he had a garage door company from El Cajon to repair the problem, and they did repair it, but now the problem happened again, and not only that the roller is out of the track, now the door is completely off the tracks. When we arrived we found that now not only that he need garage door repair, but he also burned the garage door opener from all the repeated attempts to repair the garage door. We always say that if it too cheap, it is too good to be true. To push garage door into tracks anyone can, and for 50$ it is a good deal, but to do a thorough garage door repair, is something that require time.
Case study #2
We got a call at 5 PM from a store owner that his roll up door in El Cajon went out of tracks. We said that for 29$ we will send someone in less than an hour to inspect the door and potentially fix it. He refused saying that to charge for estimate is not fair. We answered that we do not give free estimates for repairs. He called us again the same day at 10PM, and said it is OK, you can come and I will pay the 29$. We refused, and told him that after 10PM it is over hours and the service call is now 45$. He said that he will push the gate into tracks, and he doesn’t need us. We advised him not to, but he refused to listen.
Just like many cases when someone insist to repair something that he isn’t qualified to repair. He created more damage than before, and he ended completely replacing the curtain of the gate, instead of just replacing 3 slats and have the gate work again.
