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.

What our customers say
“We would like to express our sincere appreciation for the assistance your staff provided while doing the installation of the cabling at our new premises.Your staff were friendly, efficient, accommodating, patient and very neat workers, making sure to clean as they worked. Unfortunately, when they did the pre-installation inspection we had indicated that we wanted a point, which later in the morning of the installation actually had to be moved to a completely different wall. There was also a problem as we thought the cables could go through the ceiling and your staff then discovered that this was not possible and had to spend additional time feeding cables through a LOT of trunking. Your staff accommodated our changes without question. They also assisted and tried to get our network working, although we later discovered it was the ISP which was the issue, not the cabling we had thought we might have plugged into the wrong places. This was beyond the scope of your quote and was greatly appreciated by all. We shall recommend your services to anyone who may require cabling to be done.”

“Dear Michael & Team, During October 2016 I decided to automate my garage door and set about trying to find a company who could give me quote to provide this service. What a challenge!! I could not get a service provider to commit to a time and day for a quote, and if they committed they did not show up. Then in December, I got your contact details. When I contacted you, you agreed to come out on the very same day and 12h30. At exactly 12h30 your partner arrived. The advice I received was professional and to the point. My quote was emailed to me on the same day and I received re-assurance that the installation team would be able to accommodate me at the time that would fit in with my busy work schedule. On the day of installation, the team arrived 10 mins earlier and were absolutely professional.
What a pleasurable experience it was dealing with your whole team. Thank you!”

“My aging parents recently had a burglary at their home, on a Friday afternoon. When they informed me of this fact, the following morning, I phoned Michael du Plessis at Planet Automation, about installation of a security system, for my parents’ home. He and his team came to see us that Monday morning, to assess the property, from a security point of view, and had a quote ready for me, within a little more than 24 hours. Their friendly and efficient installation team, arrived the day after that, to install the alarm system. They explained & demonstrated the functioning of the alarm system in a manner that even the most technologically challenged of people could easily understand. I can recommend Michael & the team at Planet Automation, to anybody needing to install or upgrade an alarm system, with the utmost confidence.”
Rudolph Ekermans – Kwalkraft Metal Art
“I had an issue that needed urgent attention at one of our properties and Planet Automation was recommended to me by a friend. Michael from Planet Automation got hold of me immediately, made an arrangement for the next day to assess what needed to be done. As arranged he arrived, un-expectantly with one of his partners Bradley, assessed the damage and sorted out the issue within the hour. I have now used them on an additional 2 sites and can highly recommend them. They treat you like you are their only customer and keep you informed throughout the process. The technical teams that they have are very efficient, friendly and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend the Planet Automation team to anyone and everyone. They live by their Mission statement and values.“

“Dear Bradley, It is so refreshing to encounter sheer professionalism and excellence of workmanship in a services industry where post-sales support is non-existent. I am amazed and very grateful to you for this level of client-care. Planet Automation has set the bar very high in the industry. Thank you for not only considering our pocket, but also ensuring the best possible service from end-to-end. We remain grateful to you and the team”
Sincerely, The Andrews Family
