Read what our D.I.Y. customers say !

I purchased two Arcadian door gear kits to convert a pair of Garador canopy doors.  It's good quality gear and you don't need a degree in rocket science to fit it. Then I ordered two Seip TM60 remote controlled electric operators.  Again, excellent equipment which was straight forward to fit and is wonderfully effective. I encountered a couple of minor problems along the way (with my particular installation, not with the equipment) and a phone call to Nick at Amourelle had it all sorted in seconds. Amourelle's prompt delivery and customer service are second to none. It is refreshing to find a company with such 'old fashioned' customer value! - Jeff Vernon; Doncaster, S. Yorks.   I ordered a Seip electric door opener and an Arcadian door gear conversion kit for my canopy type garage door late on Thursday evening, the goods were delivered next day 11.30!!  I received plenty of help and advice. And there can’t be many businesses that say ”If you are doing the work over the weekend and need help, then just give me a call on my mobile”   All in all a great service.
I. Saunders, Aldershot, Hants.
