Avoiding Garage Door Scams

Neighborhood Garage Door Services of Phoenix, AZ has been in business for over 20 years. We have seen some really good garage door companies, and some really bad ones. It’s important to know how to spot the difference. Obviously you want to stay away from bad companies. But even more important is avoiding garage door scams.

There’s a few things you can use to spot a garage door scam artist. Take a look at our checklist, and make sure anyone you have service your door passes the test!

Don’t call us, we’ll call you


“Hello sir! We were in the neighborhood doing some repairs and wanted to extend a special offer to you today!” Sounds great, doesn’t it? Be wary of someone who knocks on your overhead door looking for work. If you weren’t experiencing difficulties with your door, why have someone look for some? Perhaps it’s time for a tune-n-lube or some other routine maintenance. If so, call a reputable company and schedule an appointment. But don’t let a random person in your home unbidden.

Look for the name

What is the technician driving? Is there a logo on their van? What about on their shirt, hat, or paperwork? Honest companies work hard to be found by potential customers. Anyone who doesn’t have their name and phone number prominently displayed isn’t very interested in being easily identified or contacted. You don’t want to work with a company that flies under the radar.

Suspicious pricing


You’ll have a natural reaction to unreasonably high prices. They will jump right out at you. Do some homework and make sure you have a decent idea of the price range for various services. If the prices seem too high, call them on it. Ask about sales, deals, or coupons. Also be careful about them pushing a “special” that they’re running if the original price is already too high.

What can be less obvious for us to catch is unreasonably LOW prices. Make sure your expectations match the market, however. If their quote is significantly lower than you expected, it might be a red flag. How are they able to offer such low prices? Are they using quality parts? Will the labor be shoddy? Make sure the price isn’t too good to be true.

Read the fine print

Be careful if the company or technician offers guarantees – lifetime warranties on parts or labor, satisfaction guarantees, etc. Guarantees are great! But make sure you read the fine print. The guarantee may come with a fee attached that makes it a little less than free like you might expect. There may be certain stipulations that would void the warranty. Don’t let a warranty or guarantee be a deal breaker, but know what you’re signing up for!

When you’re ready for a quality company that’s affordable, give Neighborhood Garage Door Services of Phoenix, Arizona a call. You’ll not only be avoiding garage door scams when you book us, you’ll be getting the best service in the business! Don’t wait any longer, give us a call today!

They sent Doug Fussell out to my house on the day after Christmas! I had only called them three days before! Doug was a premier technician, very thorough and very efficient. I expected him to take two days, since he was replacing two doors and adding openers on each door. He only took the daylight hours of one day! I could not believe how fast he was! In addition, he thoroughly taught me how to use the remote openers. I highly recommend them to anyone!

We just bought a home and this company was so understanding as I had to change the appointment time a few times. Then the tech came out and was so kind and helpful. I could not have asked for a better experience and will suggest them to anyone who needs work done on their garage door!

My garage door broke on a Saturday night as I was getting ready to leave for a holiday party. Kelvin was here within 30 minutes. He reviewed everything with me that was happening with my door. He gave me the estimates of what was immediately needed to be done in order for my door to raise and then what I will need to have done very soon. I could see all the problems he pointed out to me and I decided to have everything done. He completed everything that night. I was very satisfied with Kelvin’s professionalism and the work he did. Thank you again.
