Garage Maintenance and Repairs

Planet Automation offers scheduled maintenance agreements for the repairs and general servicing, inspections and testing of equipment.

Most manufacturers recommend maintenance every 3-6 months for commercial/industrial gates and doors, while 6-12 months is recommended for residential gates and garage doors depending on daily usage.

Too often we see costly repairs which could have been avoided had there been regular maintenance.

For a small monthly fee, have a qualified technician service your automatic gate or garage door on a regular basis dependent on the the door/gate size and daily usage.

So why not let Planet Automation take the hassle out of your preventative maintenance by keeping your equipment working in tip top condition, when you need it.
